5) Too Close For Love (Koi wo Suru)
Fumiya, a crybaby, lost his parents when he was a child. He was taken in by his relatives who had a son of the same age, Eiji. Fumiya complains about Eiji’s treating him as an infant.

Okay, I’ll admit it. I read this for the seme. just look at him. But actually, the plot was really good and the whole thing left a fuzzy “aww their love’s so cute” feeling at the end. Really nice, bless.

Yeah, the ukes were a bit too mahoosive eyes and girly features for my liking, but even I found them cute. I don’t even know what’s happening to me. I must be getting sentimental. But the semes- i dig that way of drawing eyes, very nice. The art was just generally enjoyable, though as is common with yaoi, the couple’s features are just recycled throughout the independent stories. The hairstyles and demeanors was enough to counteract this, but its still glaringly obvious.

The plots that surprised me by being good were really cute. I mean sure the yaoi cliches are there, but its a miracle to find a yaoi without them. And sure the plots have been used before. But not like this, its got a little kick to make it good. It’s nowhere near groundbreaking, but its definitely not a waste of time. Predictable but very well done, luver~ly~!

So id say 4/5 a good fuzzy one, but don’t expect any hardcore stuff here. But worth the time spent.
