Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
What an unexpected manga! For the past couple of days I kept reading random manga, some that were also on my to read list, some that I thought would be really interesting and then this, that I actually didn’t want to read because, despite the cute colours, the cover kinda put me off
which is rich coming from me considering what I usually read.
But then look at the synopsis, how can this not be both funny and a little fucked up? And it is both of that, but also cute.
The characters are so easy-going that the plot didn’t seem that weird, it felt more like what are these friends up to now? I’m a bit conflicted about this, but at the same time I enjoyed it a lot and it actually made me laugh, so good on the comedy part. And also, as long there’s consent, who is to set boundaries on anything? Go get your best friends help!
But really, I hope these guys are going to have a healthy relationship, and I also hope Yuo Yodogawa is going to write a sequel (it’s been hinted at it and I would definitely like to read it).
