I really loved this story. Mature, but not overtly sexualised. Really sad when it was over!

This manga is full of little needles that prick at your heart! The characters are relatable and the oddball art style just makes things more heartwarming. It's a part of a series written by the same mangaka and gives you a bit of a background as to how some of the couples in the private detective agency manga get together.I liked it a lot however my only complaint is that after such a compelling moment just before the end it feels like there's no real resolution. The whole thing just stops and I was looking forward to learning at least a little bit about what happened to these characters as a part of an epilogue or an extra chapter. I haven't read the other books in the same series so I don't know if what I'm looking for is buried in the pages of one of the other mangas or not.I guess I just wanted more time for them to love each other lol

I liked this one a bit better than the other one (the one with Shun and Matsuda), but I think this one cuts off too soon. Definitely feels like there should be more. Not a lot of closure; feels more like things just started.

I loved this. As much as I love smexy, I also love a really good love story. And this one did not fail with its rejected "hopeful boyfriend" to start." But a 10 year wanting this boyfriend, to have it finally come true was amazing. Sweet! SO Sweet! No penises shown here although in one scene, the guy answers the door naked. So no real nudity. But the Manga is definitely still worth reading!

Artwork is stunning. Reminds me of Aubrey Beardsley, which is why I bought it. The story is beautifully rendered.

This is quite a heart-warming story but I wish the characters other than the main one had some development. The ending was a bit rushed and it seemed very one-sided.

It's low key and slow burn which is nice, but the ending felt rushed so it could have benefited from an extra chapter. As it stands the relationship doesn't have that much of a payoff.
