Basic Premise:
Tasuku Mizouchi is the son of an ageman — a woman who brings good luck to those she’s with. Now everyone thinks he might have inherited his mother’s powers and they want his body to take advantage of the good fortune. But Tasuku only has eyes for his childhood friend Ryouta Oono. Maybe turning Ryouta’s constant bad luck around is just the excuse Tasuku needs to jump start their relationship.

Sex Shown:
Kissing, groping, suggestive positions, invisible penis, pressed bodies

Tasuku starts the story as a tsundere — an abusive character who turns nice. He’s always abusing Ryouta to hide his true feelings. When the ageman thing comes out, it’s the perfect opportunity to give love a try. You have to love the way Tasuku struggles with the dilemma of liking his childhood friend who happens to be a guy. He thinks the relationship is doomed.

And poor Ryouta is a dense sort of guy who has to have things spelled out in giant neon letters before he figures things out. His heart is always in the right place though. Both he and Tasuku balance each other out and make this a fun and entertaining read.

Zaou-sensei remains one of my favorite manga authors. And this book is definitely on my keeper shelf.
