Looks matter—that is what Yoshio Yoshida knows best. Due to his almond-shaped eyes, short height, and a scar on his face, Yoshida cannot get a girlfriend. Furthermore, all the girls at his school resent him because of his close relationship with Takahiko Satou—Yoshida's handsome, popular, and tall classmate. In reality, Yoshida does not understand why Satou is so attached to him, as they have nothing in common and barely know each other.

Even so, one of Satou's fans tricks Yoshida into finding out who Satou considers his "favorite"—the only person he will ever date. However, instead of uncovering the truth, Yoshida is caught off guard when Satou kisses him. The next day, the confused Yoshida suddenly remembers who Satou is: his gloomy and overweight elementary school classmate whom he used to protect from bullies.

Immediately afterward, Satou shows his true colors as a sadistic person and confesses his love for Yoshida. But being Satou's "favorite" might bring only more trouble to Yoshida's already complicated life.

This manga... Words cannot describe my love for this series. I check for updates every day, sometimes twice. It's urging on the side of obsession.

Needless to say, this is my favourite shounen ai manga yet. Basically, it's a very light story with lots of humor, cuteness and uke abuse. So if you like seeing ukes being abused and sadistic semes this will definitely be your cup of tea. I know it's mine.

Also, don't be fooled by the tag and think this is yaoi, because so far there hasn't been any action.It doesn't keep us perverts from hoping though, eh?

This is probably one of the legendary ten yaoi that we're actually grateful to exist. Indeed, as a self titled yaoi basher, this one is genuinely enjoyable.

The difference between this adorable little thing and thousands of other... UNPLEASANT yaoi manga is that this manga does not force any incredibly awkward sexual agenda. It is realistic considering it's a goddamn manga that has a goal of making cute gay memes ( basically ) but also has enough hard to believe cute scene that you can only wish will happen to you. It is in fact more of a shounen-ai rather than a yaoi but most of ...

do I have to say anything else? Lol. I have fallen in love with the series at first read. This really is one of the best SHOUNEN AI I have read so far. And it didn't disappoint the fangirl inside of me.

I screamed and laugh at every page and chapter of this manga.

Yoshida and Satou are an interesting couple and you would love them and their story.

So I highly recommend this series to those shounen ai/yaoi fans that likes to read a new and refreshing manga. :)
