I am compelled to write a review as this is the first short story in years that literally made me tear up. This yaoi is no joke, it's raw, serious and mature and deals with important issues in a very interesting way.

Story: it's not perfect, the phone misunderstandings were a little strange but they managed to portray Yumi's relationship with his abusive boyfriend realistically, I could relate to Yumi a lot.

Sometimes the pacing was a bit tough to follow but what's no to love with a relationship between two boys, polar opposites, yet they both like reading?

Characters: the absolute selling point, they are funny, realistic, relatable... The two mains really shine, as they show the complexities of young read more

Piece (Manga) add (All reviews)
I borrowed Piece at my local library thinking "Hey, this looks nice" and I was completely taken aback by it.

Story: Our main girl Suga Mizuho reunites with some high school classmates at the funeral of one of their very discrete classmates: Haruka Origuchi. No one really knew anything about her, and Origuchi's mom seems to believe that her daughter and Suga were friends in High School even though that was not the case.
She has a favor to ask, she would like to find Origuchi's boyfriend, because apprently Origuchi was pregnant but got an abortion in High School.
Reluctant at first, Suga and two other classmates agree read more
