Christopher Nadolski of Mania.com commented that although it seems like a boys love manga, in the end there is "no actual homoerotic payoff for fans of that fare", but feels that the tale "all comes together in a satisfying story of compassion and love." Leroy Douresseaux of Comic Book Bin called the tale "bromance" rather than boys love, and described the plot as the usual Tateno "usual kooky, weird, sci-fi/fantasy scenario", but found it "intriguing" how "she always puts love at the heart of her pulpy nonsense."
