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...

I LOVED THIS MANGA. I have always been rather reluctant to try Shounen-Ai as i pictured it to be terribly frivolous and fluffy and something i would never be emotionally invested in. HOWEVER, this went against every expectation i had with its compelling leads and original concept.

Sakurai Kazuaki aka Sakurai-san aka The sexy seme, is a 38 year old workoholic with no life really. He wants to try gardening in an attempt to spruce his dull life up but that fails due to his lack of skill but manages to be the medium through which he meets Minagawa Youichi. This happens as he read more

There is one thing I would like to change about this manga and that is for me to read the manga before I watch the film, because I did it the other way around and that was not a good idea.

The plot developed very nicely with a little bit more revealed every chapter. There are significant differences between the manga and the film in which the film is nowhere even close to how great the manga is and leaves out a lot of details, so I was glad to have the manga shed some light on some of the relationships and histories of the read more

"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
