Koimonogatari focuses on the difficulties of adolescent homosexuality. Yoshinaga Yomato is an ordinary boy, he’s naturally athletic, considerate, and sometimes quiet. While talking to one of his female friends, Yoshinaga mentions that girls simply don’t make his heart beat faster, and classmate Hasegawa Yuiji happens to accidentally hear. At first, Hasegawa finds himself uncomfortable with the news. However, as he begins to observe Yoshinaga, he finds himself unable to hate the boy who has such pure intentions.

As a manga with emphasis on reality over fiction, Koimonogatari relies on the two major perspectives consisting of: the protagonist (Yoshinaga) and the observer (Hasegawa). Readers will most read more

I have to say this manga is like none I have read so far. And it's really, really good in my opinion.

The setting might seem typical shounen ai at a first glance - high school boys dealing with their feelings for each other - but it is not. There are two main characters with alternating point of views: one struggling to understand his sexual orientation and to find a way to be genuine both towards his friends and towards himself, the other that discovers his classmate's secret and slowly observes and comes to understand and appreciate him.

There are no clichés here, it's truly an original read more
