It is rumored that Touji Seryou, one of the more popular boys at school, would go out with anyone who asks him out on a Monday morning. But on this particular Monday morning, the first person he meets at the school gate is no other than Yuzuru Shino, Seryou’s sempai at the archery club. On a whim, and well-aware of Seryou’s reputation, Shino asks Seryou to go out with him. Thinking that it will be treated as a joke, they’re both guys after all, imagine Shino’s surprise when Seryou takes him up on the offer! There is a catch, though. While Seryou does go out with the first girl who asks him out on a Monday morning, the other side of the coin is – by the end of the week, he will break up with that person. In essence, Seryou is a lover with a one-week expiration date. But will Shino prove to be the exception to that rule? (from Juné) Continue reading

35 days of BL manga! – Day 08: A BL manga that makes you fluffy and happy when you read it

This was actually an easy choice for me! I know I have read several cute things that made me really happy and fluffy, but Seven Days was the first one that came to mind and then I couldn’t think of any other.

This cover instantly attracted me

That’s because I love this manga so much. It is such a cute story about adolescent pure love that you can’t help but feel for them. By the way, this is a shounen-ai, so only a few kisses here. I kept wishing for more but it’s probably ok this way, sex would probably change the innocent air of the story?. I absolutely love Takarai Rihito’s art, it might be kind of messy but I think it is really fitting for the story, with an airy feeling to it, and her colored art is even better  ^^
Also, there is a drama cd based on this manga, they seiyuus did a nice work here. (you can find it in aarinfantasy forums)
This was also featured in the AGUY Club, Geisha wrote a nice review there.
