Spring Fever has pretty much everything that a yaoi fan could want. There are humorous moments within the story, as well as moments filled with angst. I really like how the story spends time focusing on the feelings of Tamaki. He s still trying to get over the feelings of guilt for the death of his wife, but at the same time he is also trying to be a good father to his son Yu. Yusuke does express his feelings for Tamaki, but I m having a hard time understanding how how Tamaki feels towards Yusuke.
He seems apathetic at the most, but I like how Tamaki isn t blowing him off. As I pointed out, many yaoi fans may appreciate Spring Fever there s no graphic sex in it but I think fans can still enjoy it. --The Yaoi Review

The second story was equally enjoyable and has to do with childhood romance (between guys) as well as the social hurdles one has to go through when "coming out" so to speak. Yaoi fans will definitely not be disappointed with this one-shot manga!
The first story is a classic reserved older uke/hot blooded younger seme story with some family drama thrown in. I also liked the glimpse into traditional Japanese life with the hero going to take his bath at the local bath house and working in a calligraphy school as well as a noodle shop.
The second story is about one of Yamada-san's favorite characters, the gay Naoki. He's appeared in two other of Yamada-san's books: Laugh Under the Sun & Glass Sky (BTW, Amazon currently has these two incorrectly listed under Yamada YuJi). He's a refreshing yaoi character who is unabashedly gay; though things are changing, most yaoi features "straight" guys overcome with their passion for another guy.
If you're interested in Japanese "slice of life" stories and realistic characters, I highly recommend this and all of Yamada-san's other books.
Wildman Blues about 2 childhood friends, one gay while the other straight, eventually becoming lovers sound familiar. But this mangaka tells it so well that the story is distinct and very enjoyable. Naoki the flamboyant gay is such an endearing uke and he certainly deserves a break in life.
Wonderful main and side characters in both stories by this talented mangaka. An excellent addition to my collection indeed.
