In Japan at the moment so I bought it at Animate. Probably Japanese Amazon would be the best option.
I think volume 5 just came out so there isn't too much to catch up to.


Oh I see. Hope it get license in English!

I like this! I may have to give it a read. I'm not super big on BL always, but this seems neat.

Just had to go out and buy the 1st 3 volumes. It'll be my reading project before the anime comes out. From what I've read, it's pretty good!
Not much of it is scanned only the parent series is completely scanned. Anyway, I'd recommend those who are/will be in Japan to purchase it! You'll be in for a treat! :)


You will purchase it in Japanese Amazon or from other websites?

I think all the teenage girls are a little wet at the moment hearing this news. I am not surprised....this first looks very meh to me. I may skip it since I'm not a fan of these shows usually unless they do something cool like Black Butler.
black butler is a shitty shounen tho

More Bl is always great!! Wooo!

Come to think if it, I hope a good studio will animate it, like A-1 pictures. What they did to Doukyuusei was the best. I'm so happy of it <3

I'm so happy more BL manga are getting adaptations lately.

I'm late to the party but count me in! ♡♡♡ I've only seen the cover on Twitter so far and it looks soooo good, just based off art. Nice knowing it sold 700k so far. Damn. Also, Maeno as seme? Bless.

Meh if this is gonna be a TV adaptation they'll most likely censor the sex scenes, if there is any that is. I wouldn't want another Love Stage sorry. Won't be hyped until we get further details.

I never seen the manga before and I even check, it was not upload on mangago which probably one of the most reliable source to read BL manga (correct me if I'm wrong). But the cover photo looks really nice, hope the anime is good! Anything related to BL, I support.

Its parent story is published digitally in English by JManga (but then the company went defunct) I hope it gets re-licensed :)

Oh, just to add a small note, Ann said that this manga has 700k copies on print in Japan. I don't know if it's true but that's what I read xD

News source tweet says 70万=700k so yes that's true.

I should've included it up there, but yes it's true!
