(3 customer reviews)

On a whim, high school third-year Yuzuru Shino asks out first-year Toji Seryo, who is notorious for being a weeklong lover—he’ll date the first girl to ask him out Monday morning and then promptly dump her by the following Monday! The boys start dating, and by Tuesday, the first inklings of attraction hit. Can Seryo put words to his feelings before Monday comes, or are old dating habits too hard to break?

    I’ve read the first release from June — IDK whether SuBLime did a new translation or anything.

    This is another good “beginner BL.” Straightforward but compelling storyline, not much in the way of challenging content. While the premise is a little gimmicky, it’s a solid take on the whole fake dating trope. The art style is kind…pointy? but I like it. My biggest complaint is that I don’t find the characters particularly memorable.

    I reread Seven Days after not reading it for a couple of years. When I first read it, I thought it was really really good and the best thing I had read. But after spending years reading other BL, it changed how I view this series. Like Midgeyu said, this is a good “beginner BL” but people who read BL a lot might find it a little basic.

    I have been very excited to read this manga ever since I watched the live action adaptation of it. I’m glad that it was even better than I thought it would be.
    The story of Seven Days is intriguing in concept and very sweet in execution. The manga makes a slow build out of a timeline of a mere week. It takes the two main characters whose relationship is sweet and grows from a friendship to romantic in only a week’s time and made it feel real.
    The characters all feel realistic and Seryo feels especially sympathetic. The endless cycle of heartache he is trapped in makes me want happy ending for him. Yuzuru took me a little longer to connect with but when I discovered his longing for acceptance from those around him. It left me pulling for him by the end of the week.
    I enjoy Rihito Takarai’s artwork. She captures the charcters’ emotions do well through expression and body language. I thought that the art portrayed the feeling even better than the live action movie which speaks greatly of the artist. The delicate lines make everything feel whimsical and pretty which really fits the atmosphere of the story. ( The Sublime edition also includes a bonus at the end that I thought was cute)
    Overall I loved this manga and made me a appreciate this story even more.
    The song I chose for this is Monday Monday by Kaya.
    “Monday Monday
    You gotta try
    You gotta make your move “
