Fujishima Takara goes to high school and will start living in a dorm because he has lost all his family except for his father, who's always away for his work. Takara has to share a room with Kosaka Kyomine. Living together isn't easy, and many rows ensue. Kyomine is very introverted, while Takara is just the opposite. At first the two get on each other's nerves because of those differences, but things eventually start to turn towards friendship.

Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike (English: Ask the Stars for Help!) is a rare find amongst shounen-ai manga. And for one reason only: Length. It is indeed rare to find an 85 chapter long story on such a genre, whereas other shounen-ai manga lacks in character and story development or otherwise has a rushed story, KTHK takes its time with the plot and the people, and therefore also takes its time with the main point of the genre: the romance.

The summary does a good job of giving the gist of the manga. For those of you who have read Hana Kimi they read more

Ask the Stars for Help! is a really great shounen-ai manga that displays incredible character growth, cute and funny scenarios, comedic relief, realistic portrayals, and is overall enjoyable. I have reread what scans are posted over four times, which is 14/26 volumes, and it never gets old. I would recommend this manga to anyone, even people who might shy away from shounen-ai type mangas, because it is really rewarding to read.

So far there hasn't been any explicit scenes, but it truly demonstrates the growing bond between the two main characters, Kiyomine and Takara, who dorm together in high school. What I enjoyed the read more

I had read most of yaoi and shounen ai manga, and to be honest I like many of them too. So, not to be biased, but Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike was outstanding and I love it so very much.

The story is mainly revolved around friendship and family. You might get a clue of romance here and there, but the relationship of both character might be a bit vague. Perhaps I could say that the relationship of main characters are too deep that you might get wondering whether they are best friend, a family, or lover, maybe a mix of all.

I love Miyuki read more

Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike has a brillaint story line with appealin characters which will lure you into this hilariously funny story.I especially think the relationship between the 2 main characters and their bonding through the manga is what makes it one of my favourite mangas.
