  Weird pairings, plot and events
by Pennyiscute  11/27/2013
This was a weird one. Sorry, but that's the best way I can describe this.

It's basically about a sixteen-year-old who falls for an eleven-year-old boy. Even Kazuo (the sixteen-year-old) knows it wrong, but he can't fight his feelings. Also, while this is happening, he is totally oblivious to his friend who is slowly closing in on him. And i mean 'literally' closing in. Touching him. Lending on him. Even the girls in his class started catching on, everyone except Kazuo, who is too caught up on his eleven-year-old friend to notice, until a stolen kiss that is.

Oh and somewhere in all this, there's a story about a kitten found in a box - the meet cue between the two boys.

Honestly, this was a mess. Characters. Plot. Art. Romance. Everything. The ending was also lacking. It had a great potential and was just, in my view, delivered poorly. The plot was also choppy and jumped around.

I only gave it a decent score because i finished it and it did make me smile and giggle over some events. I can't see myself re-reading this though as it left no lingering impressions what-so-ever.

  Cute, but meandering...
by FeralKat  06/17/2013
Kazuo Matsui loves cats, but childhood trauma prevented him from keeping one. After finding a box of abandoned kittens, he encounters the skittish Kitahara, an elementary school student very much like a cat himself. Thus begins Matsui's quest to coax him into friendship!

Overall, this was like eating a bag of marshmallows: sweet, but lacking any weight. I recommend this to slice of life fans and of course, fans of cats! :3
  I like it

Its a cute story and its not shoutacon LOL
I always like this author's works and this one did not disappoint me (just a little since the main couple just kissed). But overall the story is somewhat realistic and adorable.
