Hardworking, good-looking, and heir to daddy's company, Shimano thinks his life's just about perfect. Except that he's working from the bottom up in the company, and he can't seem to get along with Kurokawa, his manager. Competent but flippant, Kurokawa always seems to pay extra attention to Shimano, whether it's teasing him to make him work harder or covering up for his mistakes, which of course drives Shimano crazy. So he has Kurokawa firmly blacklisted until he realizes that Kurokawa's private life isn't a bundle of roses and begins to sympathize...and how are you supposed to hate someone you sympathize with, anyway?

I'll keep it short. This was one of my first yaoi/BL mangas and after a year or so of reading it, along with a bunch more, I surprised myself in still giving it a 10 after a second time. The story is set between two salary men, Shimano and Kurokawa, which is pretty usual. However, you get captivated by it because:
- It's really good paced;
- There IS character development, you can see their backgrounds and the progression of both the relationship and the characters is well done;
- The sex scenes are pleasing. That's the only thing I'd change though, there should be more of them. read more

I don't even know why I friggin' like this manga. I just don't know. I just kinda started reading this manga, kinda liked the chemistry between the two main characters, kinda liked the cute side stories, kinda liked the clean art, and in the end, after I finished it, I screamed on the top of my lungs. I LOVE this manga.

Story - I, as much of a BL fan I might be, am very picky about BL stories. I love stories with certain depths to it, but not so overboard you'll get tired understanding it. The thing about Natsume Isaku's mangas is how the stories read more

I am pretty tough with how I rate, so the overall score of '8' that I'm giving this manga is extremely high up and well deserved. Doushiyoumo Nai Keredo is a gem in the yaoi genre, in my opinion; it is a solid mix of sex, romance, humor, and conflict. The characters have strong and consistent personalities, and although the art is, admittedly, not my favorite, it is still decently clean, incredibly detailed, and appealing to the eye. My favorite things about the manga are the progression of the plot and the pace that it goes along at. From the yaois I have read so read more

This is everything a good yaoi should be: smart, funny, empathetic, and hot as hell.

'Charismatic' is the best word I can think of to describe Doushiyoumo Nai Karedo. It's not got elaborate art or a 100% unique plot; what it does do is spin the old chestnuts of office romance and "does he love me, does he not, oh woe is me" into something that feels new - and honestly is that not what makes yaoi readers punch the air, the new? We don't really get it that often.

The strength of this manga is in its characters: Shimano, the young guy who's got it made read more
