It will help Heiji, too, as there's ...more
Initially, I gave this only two stars. But really, I have to upgrade it to three - the first part isn't exactly exceptional, especially if you compare it with her later work, but the second volume is already a lot better. I also liked Nanase's frankness, especially when it comes to sex (actually, come to think about it, this is one of the rarer manga where both guys are equally interested in having sex - usually, the uke tends to be all, "Argh, you sex fiend" even when the sex is consensual).
