Sakurai, who works for an ad agency, bumped into a young man on his way home. He dropped some business materials and a magazine and messed them up. Luckily, the young man happened to have the same magazine and offered Sakurai to hand it over, so Sakurai followed him to his house. The young man, Minagawa Youichi, was a college student and owned a big old house, which was used as a boarding house. Sakurai thought Minagawa was unsociable and hard to go along with, but somehow he started to visit his house frequently and...

"You're friendly to everybody.
But the truth is you're not interested in anyone."

Sakurai Kazuaki is 37 years old and addicted to work. It would, however, be wrong to say he is a workaholic since that might imply he actually enjoys what he does. The truth is that he spends fourteen hours at the office each day for no other reason than feeling compelled to. Almost needless to say, his relationships don't last very long. And as much as he'd like to take up gardening as a hobby, he's painfully aware that he lacks not only the necessary leisure, but is also not exactly blessed with a read more

Since I'm bored I decided to write a review .

Hana wa Saku ka is really one of my most fave yaoi manga out there and probably my most fave work of Hidaka Shoko-sensei.

Story: 9/10

I've read this along time ago and I must admit, the first time I read it didn't really left an impression to me. At that time I thought it was just your typical BL and a forgettable story but I didn't find it that bad. It was still a good read. But still not good enough to satisfy me... probably because there were only few chapters available around that time (though read more

I can't believe no one has written a review yet. This is definitely a must read for shounen ai fans!! I must say that I'm only on chapter 10 currently, so I may not be a good judge of the entire storyline but I thought I'll write a review on what I've seen so far.

First of all, the characters are very interesting and believable. One of the main characters is actually bordering an oyaji-type, and that's very refreshing in the ocean of bl mangas that frequently revolve around high school/college students only. Every character has many layers that are revealed slowly through the course of read more

I plough through a lot of bl manga. I google ‘Best Shounen Ai Manga’, scour the forum lists and sift through the piles of recommendations in a never-ending quest to find the gems of this genre. This manga, written and illustrated by Hidaka Shoko, is one of those.

Mini summary:

There is a ‘boarding house’, where Youichi, a college student lives with his cousins, Shouta and Take, as well as a caretaker. His deceased father was a well-respected, very popular and well-liked artist of great talent. Basically, when he died, Youichi was brought up surrounded by immense pressure to conform to his father’s identity. He was a read more
