This is my first manga from Shiro and her first available yaoi (not including all her Doujinshi's) that she wrote and illustrated.
Shiro explains how she wanted to do a BL with her favourite type of uke (grumpy and tsundere) and seme (laid-back). Pretty much that's how I would describe this: a quiet loner student peaks the interests of a new easy-going teacher.
I like the pacing. It's slow and doesn't rush into the relationship and as the story progresses the drama starts to unfold. Shiro explains how she wanted to create "a gap in mentality between the two" and I found that my first impressions did a 180° by the end of the first arc because of the character makeup and resolve. This has hidden dramas that made me do a double-take.
The second arc "You Through A Kaleidoscope" was about childhood friends. Again, Shiro starts the story out pretty straight-forward and slowly introduces the drama/backstory for added emotions.
Both arcs have subtle comedy, great art and interesting characters. I like both arcs equality and found both have the same plot structure: starts out simple and ends with real emotions. You will not find your typical BL here. Okay yes, it may be based on the same-old punchlines, however I found that the drama was what made it appealing and worthy of reading.
