Due to family circumstances, Kodama Miyagi transfers to a new school in the middle of the term. For that reason, he must now share a room with Takao Ruizaki, a student rumored to be a dangerous delinquent. Mesmerized by his beauty, Kodama unconsciously calls him "Rutta"—a cute nickname contrasting his ill reputation. Instead of being mad at his new roommate, Rutta does not find an issue with it and heartily embraces his new nickname. This makes Kodama change his mind about Rutta.

As Rutta helps Kodama whenever he is bullied, the pair eventually develops a good friendship. However, out of nowhere, Rutta reveals to Kodama that he likes him. Confused about his own feelings, Kodama finds himself unable to accept his confession. But with Rutta getting into more trouble and even ignoring him, Kodama realizes that he misses him and only yearns to stand close at Rutta's side.

The characters really grow ...

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 ...
