3 Básicamente porque es mega dulce.
No es el estilo de BL que más me gusta, pero son muy monos y me sabría mal dar 2.

This is extremely sweet and cute - so much so that I can understand people not liking it. I, however, loved it - I read it mostly because of the bookstore setting, but I loved the sheer sweetness of it. It's very cute, and I think a great pick-me-up story.

Warming and sugary sweet, just like a lovely latte. This adorable manga is one of my favourites; recomended and loaned out a fair few times!

I picked this up during my last visit to Borders. I've been kind of burnt out on yaoi & BL for a while, but since the price was right (70% going out of business sale) I figured hey, why not?

This was just an incredibly cute & sweet manga. While the story doesn't really swerve that much from the typical manga fare, there's enough here to make it stand out. I loved the interactions between our leading men & the way the artwork brought out their emotions. It was also nice to see that the

J'ai failli passer à côté !! Au début le résumé de la quatrième de couverture et les dessins ne m'inspiraient pas du tout. Mais au final, quelle bonne surprise !!

L'histoire est simple, mignonne et rafraichissante, sans être neuneu ! Au contraire ce manga nous parle d'amour et de possessivité de manière intelligente, sans pourtant tomber dans le dramatique. Les personnages sortent des clichés habituels du yaoi, et sont très attachants. Quant aux dessins, ils sont plutôt pas mal au final, pas tra
BL manga. The first time Serizawa sees Keito in the bookstore where he works, he's alarmed by his height and sharp glare. But it only takes moments for him to begin to realise that Keito's sharpness is an accident, entirely at odds with his shy and awkward personality.

Ugh, this one is so goddamned appealing and sweet, Keito with his awkward bashfulness and Serizawa with his insecurities and kind-yet-dishonest ready smile. Also: freckles! I am so weak for freckles. Also also: a scene involving ki

This manga is extremely cute without passing into over fluffiness. There are some suprising hidden depths in each character including the side characters at some points when they do something a little unexpected. I don't think I dislike any character in this manga. Even the gold digging ex-boyfriend isn't completely unlikeable. The theme of appearance not matching personality works very well on both main characters and fits nicely with the story.

I'm trying to get into yaoi again since it's adorable, and this story did seem to try its hardest to be adorable incarnate, but it was a try-hard thing. It was far too cliche and unbelievable for me, and there wasn't much of a conflict really. This is good for fangirls though, romance and gooey stuff make up approximately 90% of this story.

A very heartwarming story. This story is fluffy as sweet latte and I love it. This brings me to tears. So much love and cuddliness in this manga it makes me think how looks can be deceiving for a guy who is tall and manly who could be soft as a pillow. Amazing art and story. Recommend

Ive read this one so many times its probably not healthy anymore. The whole thing is just so cute. From Hajimes freckles, to all the blushing and misunderstandings.

And the ART - I just LOVE Touko Kawais style. I will never get enough of her manga.

Saccharine story about an unbelievably shy guy who runs away crying after hooking up with a bookstore clerk. Clearly not enough plot. At any rate, since it was the first yaoi I read, I bump it up a star!...Please don't stone me...

Sweet love story. Not really any deep plots, just a sweet pick-me-up navigating the relationship between a guy who's short with a harsh opinion of himself, and another who is tall with low self-esteem.

Sweet, fluffy, mindless romance. It's good for the 'awwws'. No literary masterpiece, just cute.

it's very adorable, especially their characters which makes them perfect for each other.
This is one of the sweetest things I have ever read. It's sweet enough to make your teeth ache, almost, but I declare this to be the perfect pick-me-up. Adorable, really.
