From a narrative perspective: the story is simple and sincere, the characters are relatable and play well off each other, it's a slow paced character-study so don't go in expecting a ton of action (though there is some.) Also the art is pretty and really suits the characters/tone.

This is one of the few shounen ai stories I've read that actually explored what it was like to just be gay. There's a lot about relationships between guys, and some of them do seriously tackle the reality of being gay, but rarely have I ever identified with a character and their world as in this.

It's realistic and straight forward, but it isn't harsh or pessimistic. Seeing the characters grow and take care of one another is honestly heart warming, and for someone who's experienced anything similar, it feels almost comforting.
