Story Summary:
Yuuji isn’t your usual Buddhist priest — he’s young, good-looking, and his natural charm makes him a hit with everyone in the shopping district! Unfortunately for his leagues of adoring admirers, though, he says he’s all but sworn off love, dating, and marriage, and that his life is devoted to the practice of his faith. There’s just one thing he isn’t telling anyone: Yuuji does have someone he loves, but they can never date or marry: his childhood friend, Saburou!


Take Your Time, by Taira Taga *NEW*

Chapter 1
Takito doesn’t look like the kind of guy who confesses. Shijima thinks this is all a mistake.

Chapter 2
Takito got assigned a very pretty assistant. Shijima thinks this is his cue to leave, but…!

Chapter 3
Shijima’s workload got the better of him. Now Takito wants to take care of him – this means he gets to go inside his crush’s house!

Chapter 4
It’s finally time for the long-awaited office trip. Why is Shijima just so jumpy around Takito?

Final Chapter
A month has passed since the end of the office trip and with it, it’s already been a month since Shijima and Takito’s “test” ended.

Today is the first time Shijima is staying over at Takito’s place. He can’t help but think about what’s going to happen.

Story Summary:
Shijima’s younger coworker says they’re in love with him. This is weird because they confess that Shijima forgot to slick his hair back today. This is unbelievable because this “younger coworker” is the cool and collected Takito — who’s also a dude! Shijima says this is just a bug in Takito’s emotions, and he’ll get over him in time, but how can he insist when Takito’s just so smitten with him?

Shinobu wants to stop this relationship before Hikaru gets hurt, but Hikaru doesn’t want Shinobu to leave. Did either of them ever see this coming?

Story Summary:
A Casanova who loves one night stands and a beautiful, narcissistic “prince” — a seesaw love driven by irresistible instincts. Shinobu Urakawa is a dull office worker in the daytime, but at night, he turns into a playboy who can seduce any guy with a glance. He’s a top enjoying his double life… until Hikaru Omoteya, the detestable narcissistic “prince” of the sales department, turns up at his favorite gay bar.

Even though Hikaru is straight, he seems to enjoy the bar and keeps coming back, preventing Shinobu from enjoying his usual nightlife. But Shinobu realizes that Hikaru looks interested in him, and decides to use his charm as a weapon to regain his night oasis!

“I bet you were actually waiting for me to approach you.”

Will the pretty prince be able to resist him?
