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.

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 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.

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 read more

Wow. Just wow. Fantastic. I love the irony in the plotline and how the characters interact with each other. I always thought that the jealousy twists were the best, but I found the confession from Rutta to Kodama cute and adorable too~ As an avid fujoshi, I seriously have to applaud this manga as one of my favorites of all time. The story was woven very intricately and it flowed very smoothly. It was unique and was something most girls and boys can relate to.

Outstanding. Nothing else to say. Very detailed and neat. Smooth, crisp lines give enjoyment and special effect to the plotline. As read more
