Oborozuki Yoru ni, Aitai.
朧月夜に、あいたい。 (幻冬舎ルチル文庫) [文庫]
真崎 ひかる (著), 宝井 理人 (イラスト)

Rate: 9/10
Blab: Another book I picked out for Takarai Rihito’s art. + Piano involvement. For what I paid for it, it was very worthwhile so I’m giving it the 9. XD
Finally a karami that went into some detail XD;
Some good kyunkyun on my piano-playing days. The author didn’t get too deep into the actual mechanics of playing, which is fine, but it was good enough to know that at least she wasn’t a stranger to how the music world works. I also really liked the couple as individual characters quite a bit, even though the seme had it so easygoing, envious~. The uke Niina Keito had an interesting complex with his own name, and the seme Aihara Hiroshige was… an interesting personality all-around. Dahahahahaha. It made the second half even more interesting than the first half in ways, actually. For that, I give it good plus points. I do kind of have to agree with one of the reviews on AmazonJP though, there’s really not much relationship goodness to finish up the story after they do the deed. The resolution with the parents was a good thing, but I’m kind of picky like the reviewer and would’ve wanted more too.

Also, the double-layering plot with “Nao-chan” and the piano bit didn’t quite fit in with me. I kept feeling like the Nao-chan part was just unnecessary, even though the title of the book is based on that part. But then the piano part would be the part that seemed “extra” even though I prefered that part… =w=;;; Well, it’s only a very slight complaint, and at the end it does come together a bit.

The extra part written for the volume was mostly an expansion on “Nao-chan” which I honestly skimmed through. It was generally interesting, but I just wasn’t generally interested. XD; The ending part with Aihara’s perspective was very interesting though. Ohohohoho.
The age gap for this one was the good kind of moeeee. /razz

There’s apparently a spin-off 有明月に、おねがい for Tomosaka Masubi’s coupling also with Takarai’s art, but I don’t think I’m interested in his character enough for it. XD;
