(2 customer reviews)

At Aruko Hole, college students, salary workers, freeters, and unsuccessful musicians come to mingle. Tomo and Nao, two people from different walks of life, happen to meet one day at Aruko Hole. Despite their differences, they drunkenly become friends and start attending art exhibit “dates” together on the weekends. Their past and present anxieties burden them. But, as they reveal their worries to each other, their relationship becomes essential to both of them.

    The first few chapters of this were some of the most enjoyable and natural-feeling BL I’ve read in years. I feel like the main characters could have been my mates at uni. Even though the whole volume wasn’t the title story and I didn’t enjoy the others as much, I can’t give this less than five stars. It was very good indeed, I hope we see more of Taratsumi John’s work licensed in the future.

    I can barely remember what the story’s about (it’s an anthology), but it’s still one of my faves. If a story’s characters and setting is established strongly that you end up wanting a set of friends like them in real life, it’s good storytelling for me.

    I also like how tight the events were presented rather than wasting time on introspection that many BLs are guilty of.
