This is one of my all time favorite yaois. The story and the art are both painfully beautiful, and the relationship is heartfelt and captivating. This manga is more about feelings and emotions than plot and character development, but it is breathtaking and memorable all the same.
I do not like the summary for this manga. I think it implies a light-hearted story, which Sagatte Omachi Kudasai certainly is not. This is not a gloomy and dark manga, mostly due to the dreamy quality of the art, but it is a tragic story. And I am not sure you can say there's a happy ending. Tanaka and Doujima have a lot of work ahead of them. Tanaka's history, while not completely clarified, is extremely traumatic, and has left him in fear of social interactions. It is unclear why Doujimi falls in love with Tanaka, but Doujimi is a very kind, and quickly understands Tanaka's pain and does his best to support him.
I thought that Tanaka was an amazingly well-drawn character, and his strength in the face of his suffering and fears is admirable.
I would not call this a feel-good story, but its serene and peaceful tone helps with handling the subject matter and prevents the manga from becoming depressing. read more
