    1. Thank you for your kind words!

      I think I watched this in the summer… But, now that you said “Curled up on my couch”… This is the perfect thing to watch in a rainy day outside πŸ˜€


  1. I watched this because of you! I loved the soft drawings and the progression of their relationship. I did wish for more though! I was thinking about this anime just the other day and was thinking of looking up the manga to see if their story was continued on further. Thank you for your post back then otherwise I never would have found this gem!

    1. Really? That makes me so happy πŸ™‚ Yeah, I also loved the animation, but I was already writing too much (and I’m terrible in reviewing animation) so I decided to focus on the story xD

      Hmm that would be a nice idea! I did add the link, but I was not still able to read the manga… Well, it has more volumes than 1, so at least the story is probably more depp eheh

      You’re welcome eheh! Thank you for reading my post and give it a chance πŸ˜›

  2. Haven’t seen this one yet, but this sounds like one of those perfectly wonderful feel good kind of animes that I just always love to see 😊 And as always your post is pretty convincing in me wanting to check this one out and give it a go. So….thanks for adding another one to my never ending and ever growing encyclopedia! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. I’ve been meaning to watch this, I’m so glad that it’s just a ‘genuine’ shonen-ai (that feels so pretentious to write). Too often I see people just slap a yaoi sticker on it and call it a day. To see this just being two dudes at an awkward age in life falling love sounds wonderful. I’ll have to bump it up on my plan to watch list! Thanks for your insight!

  4. Watched Doukyuusei this summer. Actually I don’t remember having watched anything else with shounen-ai elements at the time, so it felt a bit strange. Even so, I was amazed how simple but at the same time well put together the movie was. Just like you wrote – everything feels organic and sincere – a definite recommendation for anyone.

  5. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly, HIGHLY recommend I Hear the Sunspot, by Yuki Fumino. It’s not just a cute romance that happens to be between two dudes, it’s also a damn good story overall. One of the two main characters is hard-of-hearing, and I learned so much about hearing disabilities from reading this manga.

    1. Oh, thank you so much for the recommendation. I still haven’t read it, so it’s added to my next thing to read XD

      From what you said, it just seems the kind of story that I love and looking forward to πŸ˜€
