The more I read Fumi Yoshinaga the more I adore her work.

Because she writes human stories, not just "gay" ones. (With the bonus of lovely artwork.) This collection has quite the variety (far more ably described by R. Parklane's review) of stories. Not all happy. Not all easy to read. Mainly they make you think - about relationships and about people and how similar they are underneath no matter what culture they come from. And these tales raise a few questions about expectations and perceptions - of class, age, societal pressures - both in life and in fiction.

I consider this a very worthy addition to my collection of manga. And no, America, as this volume proves, not every manga-ka writes about high school crushes or ninja battles or monsters that fit in your pocket.

The first, and title, story in this collection is wonderful! It focuses on the touching, and sometimes amusing, relationship between a successful doctor, whose parents want him to get married and move out already, and his high school friend, who is trying to make a living as a lyricist/poet. I could have wished it had been longer and more fleshed out, but it's lovely as it is.

However, two of the later stories seem to be Fumi Yoshinaga's misguided attempt at writing sci-fi/horror/mystery. One of them features "sexaroids," multiple violent deaths, a male harem, and incestuous overtones. The other is a bizarre, almost moralistic, tale in which virtually the entire population of Tokyo (and possibly the world) simply vanishes.

One of the other stories almost seems like it could be a footnote to Fumi Yoshinaga's Ichigenme series. It chronicles the unsuccessful attempts of a law professor to find love after his wife dies. It's sad, it's not yaoi, and it feels rather unfinished.

The last story is actually interesting and compelling, if sad. It follows the life of a pianist whose promising start never actually panned out. It is yaoi, sort of, but that's not really the point of the story.

All in all, this volume is quite the mixed bag. There are good stories here, but there are also some off-putting ones.

I enjoy all 5 stories here. They are not your usual Yaoi love story. Each one is distinct with unexpected ending and theme, most of them pretty sad.

My favorite is the first story of the same title, about 2 close friends since school days. One is an acknowledged gay while the other seems straight. Theirs is one engaging, humorous yet effective love story. The dialogue is engrossing and exceptional and her guys' expressions here are so vivid. Love those eyes! This is the only one with an ending which pleases sappy me but it is not the reason for it being my favorite. The 2 guys are very appealing characters, contrasting each other nicely.

"My Eternal Sweetheart" is a sci-fi Yaoi on 2 brothers. This one has a twisted plot with lots of sex including threesomes. I find this quite unique and poignant.

"Fairyland" with a twilight zone flavor may be the shortest but does strike a chord.

"One May Day" is about a hetero middle aged couple. I do not go for hetero manga but Fumi Yoshinaga has done a marvelous job here on social class distinction. She could easily have been over sentimental with this one. But she did not and as a result the story is more impactful.

The last story, "Pianist", about a failed gay musician is melancholic and bleak. It is easy to sympathize with the flawed character here as he plunges into hopelessness and despair. At least there is a glimmer of light towards the end.

Overall a great collection to have from this talented mangaka, even if not the usual Yaoi romance with the exception of the first story. Her story telling skill is remarkable and her stories very unique. Last but not least I love her artwork which is a class by itself. You just have to love all the details in the background and the vivid expressions.

There are five stories in this collection. The title story is the best of these it's about a doctor and his childhood friend who is a lyrics
and their relationship.
Two of the other stories are sort of a sci-fi with androids totaly weird. One of the other is a hetro middle age couple the story is from the man view sad and bizzare. The last story is about a pianist and his fall into depression.
Overall the collection of stories is different from what I expected in a yaoi and I don't recommend this book at all
