それを恋心と呼ぶのなら [Sore o Koigokoro to Yobu no Nara]

それを恋心と呼ぶのなら [Sore o Koigokoro to Yobu no Nara] - Kei Ichikawa, 市川けい Confirmed. Ichikawa-sensei is my favorite yaoi mangaka. Her stories... awww.. This one is about Taisei who, the first time he sees Sumeragi, he is in awe with that beautiful face and confesses his love. Turns out, the beautiful face belongs to a guy. So we have Taisei's friends making fun of him and he saying over and over again he is not a homo. Sumeragi tries to avoid him at school, but with a little help of the friends, he tries to befriend Taisei. Until Taisei can't help it and kisses him.

Awww this was a really sweet story. Sumeragi reminded me a little bit of Miyamura from [b:ホリミヤ 1|16155151|ホリミヤ 1 (Horimiya #1)|Hero|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1355651226s/16155151.jpg|21994043], only gloomier. Both guys are constantly saying "I am not a homo" but are very much aware of each other. Like in her other mangas, this broke my heart a couple of times (in the good way). Specifically, when Sumeragi cries after seeing Taisei with the girls, after days of not talking to each other. Adorable.

Taisei's group of friends were so nice and laid-back. I am glad they welcomed lonely Sumeragi in their group <3 I love everything about this manga, from the normal art to the pure love. Super, super cute!
