When the panty hose go on, all bets are off between these best guy friends!
Practical Keisuke’s incredibly handsome best friend Masayuki has always rubbed him just a little bit the wrong way. Maybe it’s because Masayuki is rich, carefree, and so stunningly handsome that he can, and does, have any girl he wants? But one day, when Keisuke accidentally wears his older sister’s panty hose to gym class, it’s suddenly his hot friend who’s doing the rubbing…on Keisuke’s panty hose-clad legs! Has he unwittingly unleashed a secret fetish that will change their relationship forever?

One shot manga. Like fetishes? Then this is for you. Keisuke's and Masayuki's friendship takes a turn for the unexpected when Keisuke accidently wears a pair of his sisters pantyhose causing a surprising reaction from Masayuki. Comical yet steamy interaction between the two is aborable and sexy.
All the characters in the story are interestingly likable.
Great story and art!

Definitely recommended! What I found special about this BL is that there wasn't the overdone "I can't like him because he's a man!" cliché. To start with the main character's best friend is gay so he doesn't have the societal conception that loving another man is "wrong" or "gross". The conflict between main character and love interest is mainly that the main character thinks they don't like each other the same way (the love interest was a bit of a floozy). And another cool part is that the main character's being living his life trying to be as independent as possible so as to not be a burden on his sister and that ties in on how he is afraid of letting himself take a chance with the love interest.
Of course the art is also beautiful (omg the kinky scenes >u<) and if nothing else read it just for how hilarious the best friend is lol
What is there not to love about Scarlet Beriko? The art is magnificent and distinctive, and does not shy away from explicitly delicious smut, but more importantly, the character development and plot are well rounded and realistic. Masayuki and Keisuke are best friends, even though they are different, Keisuke has a scary face, even though he's actually tender hearted, he works hard to support himself and is serious, while Masayuki is rich, popular, handsome and slutty. Yet, oh what miracles black pantyhose can bring about! Keisuke accidentally wears his sister's black hose and Masayuki becomes obsessed with Keisuke's perfect legs. The guys have to break through a few mental barriers before they can achieve their happy ending, and thanks to a dashing cross dresser and a wonderful sister, they all can reach their happiness. So worth it!
Realistic, honest portrayal of gay teens
I was really dubious of this one when I saw it. A pantyhose fetish sounded like a very weird kink and I expected it would be a total turn-off. It turns out the pantyhose weren't really a big deal; it was actually more about legs.
The main couple are high school best friends, and the secondary couple is one of my favorite manga tropes, a student-teacher relationship. The book deals a lot with coming-out issues from various perspectives, from supportive family members to a closet-case dealing with his own prejudices. The author really seemed to understand the nuances of sexuality that other authors treat like a cliche. I appreciate that and I am so eager to read more from this author.
So, in sum, this actually turned out to be one of my top-five favorite manga of all time. Highly recommended!

I love BL mangas so when I find a good novel or book whatever you want to call it I have to add it to my collection it was something new. pantyhoses who new they could be so much fun LOL but there was a lot of heartwarming moments I love the artist who did this manga you can tell they put a lot of thought into what they were writing it was heart-wrenching you know the way they meet how they compromised for one another every story every short story I loved it and I am proud to say this opened up a lot of doors I definitely recommend this novel, manga that is if you're bold enough to take a chance
Cute Story, Wonderful Art

The story is really cute, with a light fetish theme. The characters are well developed for a one shot manga. Its light hearted and fun, with just the right amount of angst.
I actually like the side character even more than the mains. Each character has their own motivs, and theres a touch of realism in this story.
If all that isn't enough, the art is just gorgeous.
If you're not into any fetish themes or angst, this may not be for you. Otherwise, BL fans should add this to their collection, as well as Scarlet Beriko's Other works (Fourth Generation Head, Jealousy)!

Really enjoyed the story. Its guys who aren't gay to start off they just happen to "help" the other out and ended up liking each other in the process. It does go back and forth like I'll do this, and then like no, but I think it's cute in its own way. Art style nice too
