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.
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!
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
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!
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
a person who loves graphics, I have to say - I looked up more stories from this author just so I can see more of her art. It's just fantastic. I fell in love with both of the main characters.
Very good. There was pretty nice character development going on. Kodama was humorous and had a good touch to him. I didn't find him annoying at all - ever. Rutta's character development was also amazing. The story of how he changed from a delinquent to a nicer character? I was touched and I connected to him so much because I have other friends like him. I love those characters to death.
10000/10. The end. I started reading, and I couldn't stop. At all. Simply fantastic.
9. I would put 10 if the story would just be longer. That's my only complaint. I definitely recommend this to any yaoi lovers or even just people who want to try this fandom. It would be the perfect manga to start out with - or maybe Junjou Romantica or Sekaiichi Hatsukoi but let's not get into that. I applaud this author. Simply worth as a yaoi classic in my opinion.
