Riya Narukawa is a high school freshman with a tremendous talent for the violin and an equally large bag of mental issues. After injuring his own hand to compromise his playing ability, he winds up on the doorstep of college student Atsushi Ikeda, a nice guy who's maybe too nice and generous.

I'm never crazy about multi-book series in yaoi. While I appreciate that a romance plot takes time to develop... 192 pages seems like enough time. (yes, this is a fat volume- no wimpy 120 pages here!) Also, this is more Shōnen-ai than yaoi -no nudity and only one 'attempted rape' scene near the end.)

That said, the art is consistent in quality. The storytelling, is slow. Ikeda is a nice guy, but rather... hands off for the seme (they don't even kiss in this volume.) He's really confused by Riya -...more
I started reading vol 2 before this, and if you're planning on reading this, but are a bit held back by the art, don't be. The art gets so much better by vol 2. Along with the story and characters.

As for the story, I really enjoyed it. I like how the story focuses on a few characters, so you get to immerse yourself in them. I also like how it progresses.

Don't particularly mind how its not fill blown yaoi and focuses a lot more on the story, with fluff here and there.

I also like how the story e...more
The art in this is okay and the story is decent too. The translation is pretty good compared to other manga, and Riya isn't TOO uke. I do like Atsushi - he's a decent character who doesn't change moods so wildly. The antagonist - the guy who keeps harassing Riya - is way too flat and obviously a jerk. I think I only bought this so long ago because it was yaoi and had pretty art. But now, I'm not so much a fan of the yaoi, and the art is meh (though the colouring of the cover is lovely).
I expected a lot from this series, and I was pretty underwhelmed by it. I seem to remember reading it when it was being scanlated as "G-Senjo Neko(?)," but I guess the fact that I don't remember much of it says something. If something dumped the second volume into my lap, I'd read it, but unless that happens, I don't think I'll continue reading the series.
I had a lot of hopes for this manga but somehow it just didn't do it for me. It just seemed kind of rambly and the main character was just a little too lost and "victimized" for my taste.

While this isn't the best yaoi/boy's love manga I've ever read, I still give it points for its complex portrayal of emotions and its depth. Overall, it was okay.

Not really yaoi for now. Even barely shounen-ai.
Trigger warning: (attempted) rape.
