Story: This is a pretty unique shonen ai manga, because of the inclusion of hard of hearing characters. You don't see those often in any manga. The pacing is good. Some people might find it a bit slow, but I like how you get to see the characters warming up to each other. :)
Art: Great! It's very nice. The people don't look disproportional and everyone looks fiiiine. :D
Character: Taichii (dark-haired MC) isn't all that unique. He's loud, straightforward, says and does what he wants, gets into fights, kind, etc. You can find characters like him in many other mangas, BUT the author did a great
job with him. He has his love for food, which is adorable. He's pretty relatable in his search for something to do in life, and it's hard to not admire his hardworking-ness (if that's a word...)
Kouhei (light-haired MC) is a bit more uncommon of a character. His personality is very fleshed out. It's easy to understand why he acts a certain way because of his past, which is great!
Overall the characters are solid and good. The main focus is on the above two, but you meet a few other characters and get to know them too.
OVERALL: Definitely a good read for any fujoshi. This is shonen ai though, not yaoi, and thus far (ch 11) there has been very little "action." This slow pace isn't found in many bl mangas, so it's very refreshing. :) Unlike some other ones where they meet and kiss and start going out all in one chapter. This pacing is far more realistic.
Also, I really like one of the main themes/message of the story, which is don't judge someone without trying to understand them first. This is such a good and important message that everyone should put in their hearts, because we judge too quickly and that causes pain and hate and trouble. :) Great great manga, I definitely recommend it, even if you're not into shonen ai. There's really not a lot of action/romance. You could always just pretend it's bromance & a super cute BROTP. :)
