Surprised to see the calm and collected Yuuya Koga crying, high school student Souta Tajima accidentally drops a bucket of water on him. Concerned, Tajima apologizes to Koga, who reveals he is crying over the death of his special goldfish—the one he got from the person he likes. He claims that a fat white cat with black patches killed his pet, which fits the description of Tajima's cat, though Tajima feigns ignorance.

Koga sees through Tajima's lie but sees it as an opportunity to reveal a shocking secret of his own. Tajima gradually becomes an irreplaceable figure in his life as Koga begins to rely on him for emotional support and the boys grow ever closer.

Story: A boy in love with his brother. A one sided love. A cat that acts as a cupid between the two MC's. Add to that a back story of sadness, and a future wedding. All of these happenings are found in this manga. It seems like a lot, but it is put together well in just 5 short chapters.

Art: It is airy and light. Add to that, a bit of koi/goldfish whimsically mixed in, and it is really well done. If I had to choose which category I liked this manga for the most, it would be the art.

Characters: Down to earth attitudes ...
