Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
This is such a nice manga! Besides the great art, I liked the plot too. At first I was tempted to blame Takase for his actions, but discovering his point of view I actually began to sympathise with him. We get to see his reasoning and his struggles and that makes Takase more relatable, so it’s pretty hard not to understand his decisions.
And Ito is such a sweet guy that I bet you’ll agree deserves a good man in his life. He’s so sweet and honest that you can’t not like him even a bit. And maybe feel sorry for him too at some point in the manga.
Tonari no Usotsuki is a realistic and beautiful manga that I warmly recommed if you haven’t read it already.
