I read this manga when i was a lot younger and loved it so reading it a 2nd time after so many years feels really good I liked this manga more than most cuz of my preference in women (long black hair and glasses) like Sumika Murasame has a thing about gl manga from 2000-2010 is theres way to much drama in a bad way (dark drama) but this manga is overall really a happy manga i has some points where you feel sad but not for a long time but the last chapter made me cry a bit Ushio Kazama kissing for the first time without a mask and knowing that this was the last chapter really hits the feels but i really recomend this manga (READ IF WATCHED ANIME BUT DIDNT READ THE MANGA) The anime ended on chapter 12 Vol 2 of the manga so you can start on chapter 13 Vol 3 but if you want to read the other chapters before that fine to you dont get any new info by reading the other chapters the anime covers everything pretty well but i would still buy the first 2 volumes <nav></nav>
This is a weird one... In the beginning it had the makings of a perfect GL story and up until around midway through it was totally on the right track but then it took a hard turn to Angst-Town and the pace got incredibly slow which made sure we had an incredibly prolonged stay there. It was so agonizing, in fact, that I would not recommend binge reading this one. I made that mistake and my brain was overloaded with the aforementioned angst. The frustrating thing is that the angst wasn't even the worse part about it even though it could be excrutiating at times. That unfortunate dishonor goes to the last few chapters and how rushed/haphazard/disjointed they felt. It seems the author subjected the readers to every bit of the incredibly huge amount of angst in here and did not give us the catharsis that should have made it okay for us to put up with it because of the pay-off which was incredibly rushed and it seems all the feel-good moments that should have followed were skimmed through in a flash. It did not feel satisfactory enough at all. That is a huge shame because the characters here are some of the best fleshed out I've ever seen. They're all so likable and unique. They deserved a better portrayal of their stories. I don't know what happened; whether it was an issue with the manga being cancelled or the author lost inspiration or what but the really good comedy in the earlier chapters was completely lost on the way and angst was pretty much the only thing left and by the end everything felt so rushed. If the few chapters towards the end were better handled, it would still be a 10/10 even with all the aaaaaaaangst but as it stands I can't rate it that high because it dropped the ball when it came to that and left me feeling incredibly frustrated with thoughts of how good it could have been. That said, I still recommend it.
