Ichinoi, a 75-year-old woman living a peaceful life, unwittingly buys a Boy's Love manga one day...and is fascinated by what she finds inside. When she returns to the bookstore to buy the next volume, the high school girl working there--Urara, a seasoned BL fan--notices a budding fangirl when she sees one.

Sweet but very short

by -

I bought this due to a review on the Right Stuf blog. It's the beginning of a sweet cross-generational friendship inspired by a shared love of BL manga. I loved the main characters - awkward and shy Urara and friendly and positive Ichinoi - and am looking forward to seeing how their friendship develops. I just wish this first volume hadn't been so short. Also, considering Ichinoi's age, I'm more than a little worried about the direction the series will eventually take - it'd break my heart if the author has her pass away at some point.

What a sweet story to read. The two MC are far apart in age and personality--Ichinoi, the elderly lady, is outgoing and friendly, open about her interests, while Urara, the young girl working at the bookstore, is shy, refusing to share things about herself. I can see Ichinoi dragging Urara out of her shell by the end of this, and Urara making lots more friends.

The story focuses on Ichinoi's first foray into BL manga, which she becomes enraptured with. Urara loans her books and gives her recommendations. At the end of the first volume, the two go to a BL event together to meet Ichinoi's favorite author.

It's a very sweet slice of life, very gentle... Like the other reviewer, I really hope Ichinoi doesn't pass away. It would be sad if she didn't get to see the end of the series she's reading.

Very wholesome series

by -

This is a very sweet series and a good example of friendship with a significant age gap. I really like the characters and their interactions with each other as their friendship grows.

The atmosphere of this book is also very calm, there's no over the top reactions or situations where I felt awkward reading. I found myself getting invested in the characters and story but not worrying over what's going to happen next.

I'm very excited to see how they Ichinoi and Urara change through their friendship!
