Blab: I’m not giving this a rating because it’s a bibliographic essay rather than fiction… so it feels awkward to “rate” someone’s real life experiences??

I read this all in one long sitting, not long after the publish date on June 21, 2022 though I can’t find my Twitter post about it because the Media tab is trash these days.

It’s a relatively simple piece with some good anecdotes I can relate to, growing up with my own questions about sexuality and my circle of friends being mostly gay or bisexual… I found it quite memorable overall. I have a big appreciation for the writing style it uses, and it’s something I’d certainly recommend to anyone who would like to give some support to the real life scene.

I enjoyed it enough to buy the novel in JP, as well as the manga version created from it (also in JP)! I’ve read the manga, but only skimmed through the JP novel… it’s something I intend to read more carefully at a much later point of time when I want to enjoy the piece again.

When the President got into an accident, Shirotani Tadaomi met Kurose. On their very first meeting, Kurose could tell right away that Shirotani is Mysophobic and said that it’s pretty bad while suggesting it would be better to consult a doctor about it. Shirotani was left perturbed by the encounter. Who is Kurose? And how was he able to tell Shirotani’s condition? (Source: Canis Major Scanlations)

Blab: Drama covers the first two volumes apparently? With a cliffhanger.
Will probably check out the manga some day too thanks to recs from Hibiki plus being the same artist that did bits for Utsukushii Koto >w< ~;

/love /love /love Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek.
It was fun comparing the subtle places that were changed from the manga and drama. Mostly ones I’d predicted anyway. XD I was hoping they’d dramatize the extra section at the end of the manga too, but I suppose that would’ve been pretty difficult, since it was mostly dealing with pictures. XD; But it was still so adorable. moerunaaaaaaaaaaa. And JunJun talks about it in the free talk at least <3 ~ Nakamura said he wanted to do it in the booklet XD~ I wonder what all the shuffling was in the Free Talk though owo; The scripts I guess... XD; Still... total OTP. This one will be getting many re-reads and re-listens. /shy March 2011 note: Re-read the manga recently. This work stands the test of time for me. ~ Takarai Rihito's works stalking, begin! :D

Blab: /love /love /love Such a sweet, mellow yet heart-warming story… One of the few series that has inspired me to buy the manga itself after reading it all online. Also that it’s only two volumes is certainly a plus on my wallet. XD I HOPE THEY PUT THE SECOND VOLUME ONTO DRAMA TOO!!!!! They’ve dramatized the second volume after such a long time, yokattaaaaa~~~ \o/
