At Wataru Fujii's high school, it's all the rage to wear paired rings with the girl you love. Wataru wears one though he is single, and one day inadvertently discovers that his ring pairs up with that of tall, handsome, and smart Yuichi Kazuki, the senior classman idolized by the entire school. Though Kazuki has a reputation for being kind to all, when dealing with Wataru, he is strangely harsh. Their paired rings somehow draw them together and the two alternately clash and attract, as they must sort out their budding feelings for each other.


Sono Yubi dake ga Shitteiru was published in English as Only the Ring Finger Knows by Digital Manga Publishing on August 1, 2004.

Reading this manga turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise. I went into it not expecting much, but for a work of this kind, i.e. a short four-chapter long shounen ai manga, it is quite well thought out.

The story's flow is good and is only about 30% fluffy. Even though it is such a short series, the characters and the plot seem to be fairly sound. I truly think that a lot of people can empathise with what's going on... and, I think that's what makes this manga such a fantastic yet simple piece.

I would recommend Sono Yubi dake ga Shitteiru to anyone who ...

Wataru finds out that he has the same ring as the school heartthrob-Kazuki and so, rumors start getting spread.

One of my favorite genres is shounen-ai, that's something I can’t deny. For me, and probably for a lot of others, this is the perfect manga. If you haven’t read a shounen-ai or yaoi manga but you want to read some, this is a good manga to start with. No sex scenes or what-so-ever, just a bit of cute shounen-ai. It suits the ’beginners’-taste very well so you can get used to the genre (not that I’m a beginner anymore ^__^). If you like shounen-ai, this is a must-read!

Story: Right after I had read the synopsis I wanted to go and start reading it. Now ...
