Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
All Night Long is a cute, light manga. Noboru is just realizing he might be gay and decides to tell that to his two best friends who not only are okay about it, but they suggest he tries it out to see if he really is gay or not.
Obviously, that’s easier said than done, but when one of his friends suggests asking Yagi about it, Noboru decides to give it a shot. It sure helps that Noboru already had his eyes on Yagi, but his plan doesn’t really go accordingly. To anything because really, he doesn’t have a plan.
Surprisingly Yagi agrees to help Noboru into figuring it out, but on his terms. Noboru gets to learn more about himself, but about Yagi too. Their relationship gets complicated, feelings of love and jealousy arise and Noboru is uncertain if there’s going to be something more to it or not.
I liked both of them and it is clear to see they go through a confusing time. Noboru is faced with a completely new situation and all kinds of new feelings and he’s trying to reach for what he wants while keeping his heart safe. Yagi has things he’d rather keep hidden, he too tries to keep his heart safe, but in the end there’s nothing better than honesty.
The art is also so pretty. It’s somehow cleaner than some other mangas, if that makes any sense, and it adds to the cuteness of it. All Night Long is a perfect manga for a quick evening read.
