Art/Illustrations: This was done with standard manga art, but it was well done and the artist was able to differentiate between the two similar-ish leads that I could tell them apart, which doesn't always happen for me in manga.
Would I Recommend?: Yes.
Personal thoughts: This was an adorable manga depicting two young men slowly falling in love over food with a younger brother (he's four-years-old) constantly being cute and getting in the way. Everything about this was sweet and good and realistic, right down to Yutaka's fears of losing loved ones. I appreciated that there was no sex, which sometimes goes overboard in a manga and sometimes ends up as the non-consensual variety. But not here. This was a beautiful and gentle love story. And I highly recommend it.
