The first thing that bothered me about the art was its overemphasis on the upper eyelids, and how the eyes (especially Sajou's) can have an unnatural swoopy shape. The radial quality of the pupils was initially neat, but it also started being a bit of a distraction. The flowery trees and some of the other background stuff can look pretty, and I really like Kusakabe's hair. Some of the individual images are especially awkward and badly drawn, but for the most part it's whatever. There art stilt-legs, squibbly fingers, and oddly curved forearms. Heads can be too small for the bodies, and the shirts sometimes puff out. So the art isn't the greatest. But the story is pretty good. The interactions between Sajou and Kusakabe felt natural and adorable. The basic pattern for the chapters is that there's some sort of drama (usually caused by pretty basic insecurities) and the two of them have a bit of a brief divide before reuniting stronger than ever--and then making out. The third chapter is the exception to this, and it's also quite possibly the best chapter in regards to adding some depth and character development to the story (though it doesn't even involve Kusakabe). I appreciated the small details they included about the characters, like Kusakabe's band and Sajou feeling sick when fe rides trains.
This was such a heartwarming story and it got me into reading more magas with the genre bl on it. I really liked the series and ended up reading it all. I would recommend this story to people who want to get more into the genre of bl. If i could i would give it 10000/10
