Shizuki and Yano are members of the same woodwind choir. They seem to have nothing to do with each other outside of that...so why do they regularly meet up at a love hotel?

I loved this, it was surprisingly wholesome. It didn't go the way I expected, most stories like these tend to focus on the misunderstanding tropes, but i think it was very down to earth about its handling of it, which is refreshing!! Very straight forward and wholesome, and it's really just a story about them, and their relationships progression. I loved watching them grow comfortable and altogether just be a great match for each other. So enjoyable to read, with a nice art style!! I'd absolutely recommend it.
I really enjoyed this - it's light-hearted and casual overall so there's plenty of fluff, especially in the second volume, but there's also enough conflict to drive forward the plot. Both of the characters have specific flaws that are introduced pretty early on and addressed throughout the series but together they build a refreshingly healthy relationship. Anyway, it's partly them working through relationship problems and partly just showing their daily lives (getting ready in the morning, making food, finding a place to live, etc.) Some other notes: The woodwind choir is just a background setting and not actually a part of the plot. The plot itself is entirely focused on their relationship. Also, sex is an important part of the story (it is a friends-with-benefits-to-lovers story, after all) but there's nothing explicit, just enough to be like "wow, that's hot" without seeing too much. Maybe that's your thing, maybe not, but I liked it. In my opinion, Shizuki is a manga character who actually looks really good in glasses. He often goes without wearing them though, like when he's at home. I actually haven't read past the second volume because I don't think volume 3 is available yet but the author says that volume 3 will be more about the woodwind choir, including Yano's childhood friend and the high school girl who unintentionally was the catalyst for getting Shizuki and Yano together.
Nice art, decent-ish story but it often feels like there’s barely anything going on. One detail that got me excited was the premise, or maybe more specifically, the band background of the story. From the details provided, you can tell the author has more than just base knowledge of how bands are like / instruments, although I can’t vouch for the handling of flutes. The execution of the story is poor, though the art is nice. Character design is average—not saying they’re plain—and plot is just so-so. Really, not recommended unless you have time to kill. Ah. Or maybe the translation is making it bad? The conversations between characters often sound detached or doesn’t flow well. That’s my biggest gripe. Also the truth is that whether or not they were in a band/musicians, the story wouldn’t change AT ALL. I mean, we haven’t been shown any band practice sessions whatsoever. Honestly, it feels like the author wanted to demonstrate her knowledge of the subject/wants to write a band story, took the idea, and ran with it.
