Publisher Comments:

One day, as the boys Aoi and Hajime are returning home from a school picnic, they find an abandoned little boy in the park with the note "please adopt me" pinned to him. His only possession is a small backpack with a change of clothes, and the nametags on his little boots read "Gaku." Both Aoi and Hajime want to adopt this "little brother." Ten years later, Gaku has grown into a handsome boy with no memory of his adoption. Gaku and Aoi are close siblings, but Aoi finds himself feeling more than that towards Gaku. Hajime has always been in love with Aoi, but sees that Aoi only has eyes for Gaku, and vice-versa. Gaku and Aoi are hesitant to express their feelings, each fearing that the other holds only a brotherly affection. Then one day, Gaku finds out about his adoption, and that he and Aoi are not related by blood...

Review:

"Takahashi might as well have called this book 'Bite-Sized Yaoi.' It's a collection of short stories and each accomplishes what a yaoi ('boy love') story should and not a whole lot else. There's the energetic boy who's filled with romance, the moody boy who isn't quite sure of himself, and the climactic kiss at the end. The stories switch settings and certain plot points, usually what brings the two boys together, but that's about the only difference in these stories. One story even recycles the 'adapted brother' approach from an early story. Takahashi draws two types of boys: one with blonde hair and ones with black hair. Cuteness is held in high regard by certain characters, and Takahashi shares the notion. The characters' heads threaten to crush the rest of their bodies. But if their heads weren't so big, how could they hold those eyes, exaggerated for maximum adorableness? This collection of stories will probably please fans of the genre as it hits all the right notes (there's even some cosplay — characters dressing up as other characters). Anyone else will be looking for a little more depth and variety and find the series of similar stories a chore to read through." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
