Tomoko has noticed her son, Hiroki, is acting strangely. He’s clearly in love and interested in romance but hesitant to say who it is. But Hiroki is terrible at keeping secrets and even worse at lying so Tomoko is sure her son’s crush is another boy.
This is right up there with Komi in levels of adorable. Hiroki is the worst liar but he’s a good kid and his mom is clearly just letting him find his own way and supporting him when he needs it. The art is simple but expressive and the characters are established well with only a few glances or words. If you’re in the market for some clean, LGBTQ, slice of life content, this is a sweet read. 4 out of 5.
