Haruta is teased for being a playboy ladies’ man and heartbreaker after resigning from his previous workplace when he fell in love with his boss’ girlfriend. He just wanted an ordinary life, ordinary happiness, and ordinary love, but it seems he’s out of luck. Haruta moves to an apartment complex owned by his friend, Hatake, for his new job. He meets Sousuke Azumi, a talented glass artist who was a previous acquaintance of his back in their academy days. The two were amicable at first. That is until Sousuke tries manipulating Haruta into making a move on Michiyo, Hatake’s girlfriend. It turns out, Sousuke has feelings for Hatake. Embarrassed and angry, Haruta confronts Sousuke. Thus begins their complicated relationship.

    I’m so glad I gave this title a chance! When the description said that Sousuke tries to manipulate Haruta, that didn’t inspire the warm-fuzzies in me (I don’t really care for manipulative characters), but that’s not really a personality trait of his, it’s just something that happens.

    This was a really nice story. Haruta is one of my favorite types of characters–optimistic, earnest, and forthright in his feelings, and truly supportive of others. He also doesn’t go through the “OMG but he’s a guy?!?!!” when he realizes he likes Sousuke–which always wins points in my book. Sousuke is (understandably) a little moody and unhappy through a lot of the story; he’s not perfect, but his good traits shine through and I ended up really liking him.

    If you like a teeensy bit of angst but otherwise a very sweet and affirming story, pick this up!!
