Despite belonging to a family of four, the Aoyama residence is typically home to three due to father Akiyoshi's job. While he's away at work, mom Tomoko and her two beloved sons Hiroki and Yuri go about their everyday lives—going to school, making dinner, doing homework, etc. But now that Hiroki's in his first year of high school, his thoughts are turning ever so slightly to sex and romance...and his mom can't help but notice his slips of the tongue when he's talking about who he likes. Supportive Tomoko has an inkling Hiroki might be gay, but she's going to let him figure it out for himself. Unfortunately, Hiroki has little talent for keeping his "secret," so he might die of embarassment before all is said and done!

This is my first review so I'll probably just babble about. The premise of the manga itself is nice unless you're a homophobe. It's a great slice of life manga especially for those who are gay themselves. One might as well just envy the life of Hiroki and his family. Honestly, it's just very wholesome seeing the reaction of a mom who is wondering if her son is gay. Story The story is really nice, it's organized and brings in new events with care. The exposition was really nice and again, the premise is just so nice. It really is just so wholesome (ノ〃▽〃)ノ Art The art is like your old-school kind of style but incorporates some modern prominent styles. The cartoonish style gives the manga more of a push into the wholesome side. Everything is just so wholesome and the lines say it all. Characters Hiroki- Hiroki is just the epitome of a dumb gay guy who doesn't know his feelings quite yet, though he has an idea of it. He's your typical soft guy who gets all flustered by hearing their crush's name. Tomoko- THE BEST!!! Like for real, she is what every gay person wants in their family. She is very open-minded and knows what her sons are feeling. She can also speak out to others when they are being rude or close-minded. Basically, best mom omfg why didn't I grow up with her. Yuuri- Yuuri is just a nice extra to the mix, he's very open-minded but is also very hard to read, stoic. He might just be an 8th-grader but he knows damn well how to be a good person. Akiyoshi- He's a very good balancing stone to the scale, he's your typical dad who works hard for his family. Though even so, he bonds with his family on his day offs, more so on Hiroki, which makes the story more wholesome. Of course, he isn't that open-minded as the rest of his family, he still tries his best to love his family. Daigo- Daigo is just like omfg, I can tell why Hiroki likes him. Anyways, he's a cool-headed person and is just your typical student and all. Overall Very wholesome and if you want to have a better insight of what to do if you suspect someone is gay then give this one a go, whilst not a perfect tutorial, it delves into what most gay person would've liked in their life.
This deserves way more recognition, it's a very wholesome manga. Im not a very good writer, however the review section was looking lonely even though it's such a great story. Hiroki is gay and has a crush on his classmate, but he hasn't come out yet and desperately tries to hide it. However, as the title says "I think our son is gay" the mother notices and is so...So incredibly supportive. The best mother ever, seriously. She is very open minded and cheers Hiroki on secretly, waiting for him to become comfortable enough to come out on his own. The mangaka is also gay (mentioned in manga), and apparently he came out to his parents after releasing the first volume! Art style is pretty simple and neat, it fits the story well. The chapters are fairly short so I definitely recommend giving it a read! Trust me you will love the mother :)
