Wow, I had to review this one since the pairings totally confused me. I mean usually in yaoi it’s obvious who the pairings are gonna be and how they are gonna turn out, but here was a manga where I was left guessing. I mean it was a love polygon of the emotional kind but it actually ended to my satisfaction! I actually gave the mangaka a little applause at the end. Bravo, well played!Yeah, as you can tell I was just the teenseyest bit impressed.

Despite having a good romance it didn’t lack in other areas. The art was pretty good, and in the end the manga ended with two types of yaoi couples, especially in business related yaoi – you know , the cool business man and the cutesy business trainee, and then the two cool business men, cute together. It was refreshing to see both in the same manga.
The plot was good, decent emotional background and motivations.

Some bits were a bit rushed and unexplained and took me a few moments to understand certain plot aspects. Then again I suspect the scantilation I was reading must have missed out a few pages in the second chapter- either that or the mangaka just hop skipped and jumped straight into the next plot bit.

Anyhoo, worth reading for the interesting love polygon and pairings, 3.5/5 enjoyable but nothing fantastic.
