iLLUMiNATiON (New Edition) by Tomoko Yamashita *NEW*

Ryuji said he isn’t gay, but he’s still in love with his childhood friend Naomi…

Sudo likes to think that he’s good with people since nobody hates him…but nobody loves him, either. Why can’t he stop falling for people who wouldn’t love him back?

Even though he always stayed in the closet, all his friends found out he was gay anyway. But there’s one person he hopes won’t think worse of him for that…

Nakahisa always knew that her love rival for her crush Akai was a guy in the band club named Togame. As time goes on, she just can’t help but want to help him out…

Koya doesn’t really know what it means for a man to be with another man. What he does know is that he’d do anything if it means he and Ryuji can stay together forever.

The only reason why Mikajima can’t work higher up the ranks is because of his beast of a friend Suga. They tell him he’s the only one who can tame him – but who’s the one being tamed, here?

Yohei Shichibe had a life just like any other. When it ends, he asks his childhood friend to call some very specific people. Why these people, exactly?

This is probably the most popular that Ryuuji’s ever been his entire life, but he just wishes his two lovestruck admirers would shut the hell up.

Story Summary:
Ryuuji and Naomi are close childhood friends. Both had their share of relationships with women, so Ryuuji is frustrated as to why he’s had romantic feelings for the idiotic and oblivious Naomi all this time. While drinking his problems away, as usual, he meets the bartender Kiyotoshi who becomes interested in him, and the two ended up sleeping with each other. Since then, everything went spiraling out of control between the three of them, especially for Ryuuji, whose heart seems to betray him.
