Rutta changed from a delinquent to a nice guy because of his new roommate, Miyagi Kodama. Kodama was unsure of his own feelings after Rutta’s confession. After seeing Rutta’s injuries caused from excessive fighting, Kodama finally decided to face the truth and accepted him.
I totally fell in love with this manga! It's extremely sweet and cute!
The main story (Rutta & Kodama's story) is not exactly filled with a lot of drama but is still very interesting. And the fact that there aren't many conflicts to do with jealousy and such just shows how much they trust each other. It's just so sweet and cute.. And it's not like your typical yaoi's that all are sex-crazy with the resistant uke and the forceful seme. It's sweet and it's very clear that they love each other so much (sorry for sounding cheesy ^^)...
The art is beautiful. I was very impressed, all the characters are very good looking and the body proportions are good.
Some of the characters were a little boring. Although I like Kodama is very cute and funny, he is plain and it's a little unrealistic that a guy like Rutta would fall in love with him like that. But most of the characters were designed well, even some of the side characters (Hiromi has such a nice personality!)
I enjoyed this manga sooo much! It was just so cute (how many times have I said that word?!) and I have re-read the chapters I've read lots of times.
I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of shoujo manga/anime. And I think it's a good manga to read if you're only beginning to like yaoi. There are still sex-scenes and such but it's very romantic and not as intense as other yaoi manga's.
This is simply one of the best stories I've ever read in this genre. The story is so sweet, the characters are so straightforward that it's refreshing. Most of the manga I've read so far bank on conflicts, misunderstandings, characters who won't accept their feelings (initially), and then the couple overcoming all the hurdles to get their happy ending. Though those kinds of stories are also fun to read and make one's heart beat fast, it's great to find a gem like Rutta to Kodama that does not need those in order to make the story sweet, heartwarming, and really interesting. The characters really grow on you. I wish there are more like this from Fujitani-Sensei! read more
This is more like a ''Why you should read this manga'' than a review.
The story of this manga is just so realistic, I love it. Most love stories focus on the getting to getter/starting dating part, but not this one and this is what I like the most about it. It just tells a story about two boys dating and how their couple and feeling grow as time passes. It may seem too simple and maybe boring, but it's not. It just feels real, I could really see myself in the characters and some parts. And even if the story is simple, don't expect to see undevelopded characters, because they are really well created and have a nice personnality.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I think anybody who had a long relationship before will like it too.
The only things I did not like in the story is that it is too short, I would have liked to see more (in college for example) and also learn a bit more about the supporting characters. The othe thing I disliked was the fact that I felt like sometimes (maybe 2-3 times overall) sex scenes were thrown in just to be there. They were sexy and all, but I felt like they weren't necessary and I don't like when writers do that.
Finally, this is a must read for any yaoi/shonen-ai fan or people who like great love stories!read more
While I was reading this manga I got embarrassed a lot, the characters mood effect me haha. I love this manga so much, the only thing is that I feel sorta empty at the ending, I don't know how to describe it, and I was a bit confuse too, like what job did Kodama get and so. Other than that I LOVE IT! it really touches me.
