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 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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
I just recently reread this manga, and as always, it is a joy from start to finish. This is not a perfect manga by any means, and as is often the case when I review something I initially read at a much younger age, I definitely look on this work with the rose-colored glasses of nostalgia (aka, I'm acknowledging my bias up top, people). Some of the plot points are a little trite at times, and nonsensical at others, but this manga has aged probably as well as any manga might hope to.

The characters are the strongest point of this manga. While there are stereotypes ...
