The plot scenario is very basic: student needs place to stay in Tokyo and ends up shaking up with this white-collar guy for free...but with a catch! He must do all the cooking, all the cleaning and sleep in the same bed as him...wait? what!
Yes the handsome Roku, who's a president of a business and high earning citizen, is afraid of the dark. Not a problem, as Iori is use to sleeping with his younger siblings all the time...but when Roku 'touches' him one night Iori must comes to terms with what their relationship really is.
If you've read any of Puku's works you will know
what you're in for; some cute chibis, funny scenes and strangely addictive characters! I love Puku's mangas because she delivers simple rom coms that are not over the top, smutty or demanding. Just refreshing romances based around quirky characters.
The art is also favorable. The level of detail in the smallest things: clothing, backgrounds, anatomy...even in her chibis you can see good design. I not talking 'Rihito Takarai' here but definitely in a class of her own.
I enjoy this manga because it always leaves me with a smile on my face, no matter how many times i read it. Look, nothing terribly exciting happens and the drama or scenarios are not gripping; it's simple and enjoyable. Also, although this is a yaoi - the first from Puku, as she mainly does Shounen-Ai's - it's very tame. Good, but tame.
Conclusion: If you are after a refreshing romance with loveable characters, adorable art and some good laughs, you will enjoy this.
PS: The name 'Caramel' is based around the argument between Roku and Iori about having Caramel sauce with pudding. Roku doesn't like it, where Iori does. I must say, after all the talk about delicious caramel pudding i had to make my own...and I'm siding with Iori! haha
