"Inoue-san, you're my first boyfriend...", says Yamamoto, 28 years old. "I don't have a lot of experience either, but we'll work through it together", says Inoue, 32 years old.

In reality, Inoue's never been with a girl either, but he couldn't tell Yamamoto that.

A fluffy love-comedy about the adventures of this innocent and pure couple.

The final chapter is finally out, and the story is finished.

It was... decent, and pretty fun.

But at the same time I felt like it was quite lacking.

One of the problems I usually have with "adult characters" in manga is how they're actually middle to high schoolers in soul, just in the bodies of adults.

As you can guess with the premise, it's exactly what's happening there. A couple of 30 years old who have never had a relationship before. Naturally, in a very manga fashion, they'll proceed to get embarrassed over everything, slowing down progression greatly.

The side couple is actually more charming than the main couple, read more

Take note, this review is biased by my own emotion when I discover it in manga rock back in 2018 when well, my heart almost breaks down.

Really, what a beautiful story from the first to the last chapter. Kinda hoping for a more developed ending in the end roll but it is what it is. The story starts when Inoue Kanata, a salaryman that almost hit his 30 meets a certain girl after his junior in college Kurata Aki. She met with Yamamoto Yuumi, the girl that is gonna change his world fully, and what a surprise, he changed hers too. The summary of this read more

This is as enjoyable as a feel-good, slice of life manga can get.
Sure, it's a bit shallow, but who doesn't love a puddle to splash once in a while?

One notable element is that it's in the josei genre, capitalizing on realism and adult (but not necessarily erotic) relationships. These are people in love, but they are adults with jobs and brains. Unlike many in the shoujo genre, they resolve miscommunications by, cue drum roll, communicating. And no one's a jerk masquerading as a misunderstood bad boy, which is greatly appreciated.

It can get cheesy at times, especially with the main couple. A lot read more

A dangerous, potent substance disguised as a cutesy romance manga. Beware.

This manga’s sweet tastes would surely strike the palate of one who loves the sort. Its pages flow a calm stream of fluff, bringing along a balanced warmth. Slow and steady. Never over the top, but just enough to redden the cheeks and awaken the ever-dormant butterflies within the reader. The lively, expressive artwork very well displayed the emotions and also elicited them within me. Picking something up one day and catching up with the current six volumes the next is not something you can find me doing, attesting to the absolute potency I described.
