Hikaru always thought his classmate Rihito was kind of a snob, until he stumbles across Rihito secretly practicing a song in an empty classroom. Hikaru agrees to become Rihito’s music tutor, and with each lesson the two boys grow closer. But when Hikaru realizes that he’s fallen in love with Rihito, will they stay classmates or become something more?

    This BL is VERY standard plot line with standard character types…but Nakamura is a talented enough mangaka to take something basic and make it into something great. Goes to show that you don’t need a unique premise and cool character hooks to tell a memorable story. What makes it work in my opinion are the small moments of characterization that make our two leads feel like real people rather than character types. They have quirks. They have families. They have concerns outside of each other. Really, if you only ever read one high school BL about classmates who seem mismatched getting together, make it this one.

    Big caveat though: the third most important character is a teacher who pursues one of the student leads romantically. We occasionally get his POV, and he is written to be a sympathetic character. Him pursuing a student is treated as normal by fellow teachers. If this content would bother you, give this series a pass.
