On his very first day at a brand-new job, shy Shima is trapped in the elevator with a hungover mess of a guy…who turns out to be his boss! Togawa’s prickly exterior definitely puts the rookie recruit on-edge, but it doesn’t take long before Shima’s every waking thought is invaded by his overbearing yet totally thoughtful superior. Will Shima put aside a history of disappointment in order to take a chance on a complicated relationship?


No Touching At All is the main story featuring the couple Onoda x Deguchi in the side story; "Even So, I Will Love You Tenderly."

editorial reviews
No Touching at All is a surprisingly mature, gentle, and satisfying story. Since this story is the book’s sole focus, there’s plenty of time for character and story development. Both Shima and Togawa are well developed characters, with complicated backgrounds that affect their current personalities and interpersonal relationships. They have distinct personalities that are effectively used throughout the story, and their facial expressions clearly reflect their inner struggles and outward reactions.

No Touching At All is a great drama that would appeal to anyone who likes a good story with interesting characters and fantastic art.

  Freakin' Loved It!

There's not many yaois that I enjoy so much that I read it over 20 times! What can I say? This story is really amazing! I love how the characters are so realistic in personality. The art is decent and the storyline is so emotional. Still it had a good mix of intimacy and plot that I don't see in too many yaois. I really loved this story and had to buy it. It is definitely worth the purchase. ^_^
  I get the title now that I've read the book a few times

On his first day of work, Shima meets his new section chief Togawa on the elevator, which Togawa is stinking up because he was drinking until early morning. Not the best first impression. The workplace is pretty relaxed, but Shima's on his guard. He finds himself falling for the obviously straight section chief, but he fights it, trying to maintain distance between himself and his co-workers. Togawa doesn't let him keep it up, and they end up in an awkward relationship that seems to Shima to mostly be about sex. Shima knows it's a bad idea because of his past experience with the disaster of dating straight men. It gets worse when Togawa mentions wanting a family mostly to have kids. This relationship drama is based on miscommunication and self-loathing (like a lot of real-life relationship drama), and the way it resolves is tender and touching.

Elements that raise the bar: late 20-something and 30-something adults, office comedy and drama, tragic pasts, solid co-workers who care, actual good reasons for angst and standoffishness. Elements that make me cringe: It makes me sad when people think so badly of themselves because of what other people have said and done to them, and I'm not fond of relationships that start with sex when one partner is seeing the sex so sadly (though this element that usually makes me crazy is slightly redeemed here because it seems to be used in an organic way that arises from the story and not just because this is yaoi because, to Shima, the sex IS just sex).

Overall, this is a great single-volume story that uses point-of-view very well to pull together two characters for believable reasons and give them a tender resolution of sorts. It's well worth a read, if those elements appeal to you.
