Ueda Tomoharu is a cop manning a local koban station, and he's quite happy with his job and relatively quiet life until he happens to run into yakuza member Gotouda Aki while chasing down an underwear thief... and is suddenly confessed to! Aki doesn't seem bothered in the least about their "star-crossed lovers" status and eagerly dives into a super lovey-dovey relationship with his policeman, but Ueda's about to find out just how dangerous it can be dating a mobster... in more ways than one.

Honto Yajuu is a silly Yaoi smut series about a hot-headed uke that's part of the Yakuza and his super adorkable seme that's a cop. The story is super simple and it mostly focuses on the relationship between the cop and the yakuza member. The couple is super cute and silly. And the smut is really good from what I read. The main couple's sex scenes are funny and consensual. I recommend this if you want some cute and funny yaoi smut.

Then a few chapters later it's like the end. This can't be defined as Honto Yajuu.

Preliminary (29/? eps)
I’m honestly not even surprised that one of the highest rated Boys Love manga on MAL is just completely average.

As usual with BL, we don't get much introduction to the characters. Not even a real elaboration on to why the even fell in love. In fact, the first chapters sends us straight to a love confession. Oh, sure, we do get a supposed reason - "You've saved me". The saving being "you've caught a thief I was chasing and I’ve run away after". I've read the supposed "saving"" scene multiple time and sorry, I just can't see any saving or anything that would warrant falling ...
