*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review and is rated 18+

Himaru is just starting high school and is pretty naïve about how his own body works. So when he starts having a problem with wet dreams, he askes his friend, Gaku, what the heck is going on. Gaku offers to teach Himaru about these things and their experimentation begins to turn into something more.

Again, I HAD to reimagine these characters as adults because they are 15 and it makes me so uncomfortable to see the explicit scenes, of which there are plenty. I get it’s a different country and I won’t even pretend at 15 I didn’t know damn well my peers were sexually active and managing to get their hands on smut if they wanted but still.

Himaru is funny and his interactions with Gaku are great; only surpassed by his mother and sister. I like the general vibe of this comic. Himaru is the type to just say whatever he wants, since he doesn’t know how to be discreet because nobody ever taught him and it plays off well with Gaku as he becomes more honest with himself. They have a great dynamic and are sweet together. 4 out of 5.
