A different kind of student x teacher story. The main character is a teen whose purpose in the plot is to get the two men he loves to hook up with each other. I guess it's altruistic motivation, as he knows the other two men love each other and not him, but it makes me wonder why he had to be the focal character in the story, since that's the case. It's just kind of strange.

I don't really like either one of the three characters yet don't dislike them either. It's a story of undecided people who put on a very decided front met too-cheerful youngster. If I have to choose, the only person I like in this debacle is Ogawa who's not actually has hidden agenda as well. So everybody in this story doesn't show their true selves and feelings. :3
