When I picked this up, I only wanted to pass the time and, thank God, the plot wasn’t overly complicated or anything and the main character, Toru, was a cutie :)

Baically, is the story of two friends: Toru and Ryoji. Toru loves Ryoji secretly and Ryoji has a sexual atraction towards Toru, but none of them knows about each other’s feelings until Ryoji admits to Toru that he gets aroused near him.

Honestly, I didn’t like Ryoji. I don’t usually like forceful males in any sort of way and he was a tota

I thought it was very cute when I first read it about two years ago. To this day it is one of my favorites.
very nice
