Worth the pain a capable man


Plot

Shingo has always liked guys who are exceptional. His best friend, Koji, is the smartest, fastest, and hottest guy in school. But what Shingo doesn't know is that Koji has worked hard to be so exceptional - and he's doing it to impress Shingo! Why? He's in love with Shingo of course! But all is about to be revealed, because when Shingo's just-as-impressive cousin comes into town, Koji realizes he'll have to confess everything or risk losing his one true love forever...

Reception

Mania.com's Danielle van Gorder commends the manga for its "nicely distinct" character designs but criticises it for "the reproduction [which] looks slightly muddy, and the screentone replication isn't the greatest". Pop Shock Culture's Isaac Hale commends the manga for its "adorable humor [which] is abundant in every story". Comic Book Bin's Leroy Douresseaux comments on the manga artist's use of "a variety of moods, techniques, and styles to give her stories a variety of temperatures – from hot and sexy to adorable and funny".
