ember-snow (All reviews)
I am not particularly interested in shounen-ai, but this should not be classified as strictly "eye-candy" or "love between boys." I believe this story was not written for the sake of it being shounen-ai, but for the sake of telling a "true love" story.

At first, I was drawn to the manga because of the beautiful art style, and once I started reading it, I could tell it was unique. The plot started out differently, and moved at a pace that was not rushed, but was not too slow. The characters felt almost real, as you learn more about them as the story progresses. They are not shallow characters. They have faults, like real people, and that's why I really like the characters in this.

I'm not very good at writing reviews (this is my first), so I'm not sure what to say exactly. But I can tell you that this won't disappoint you. Contrary to cliched romance stories, "Seven Days" is unique and captivating. It is not about love on the surface. The characters don't love each other simply because they are both boys, but because they learn more about each other and how they bring out the best in each other.

Overall, what really touched me in this manga was its purity and portrayal of "love." It's rare to find a meaningful story like this.
