A lone wolf with a delinquent streak, Kashima enters high school with a reputation that scares off his classmates. Little do his classmates know, Kashima is not a typical delinquent: he is a masochist that enjoys being hit by guys.
Ryouji Sanada, despite Kashima’s reputation, goes out of his way to talk to Kashima on the first day of high school. Confused by Ryouji, Kashima rebuffs his handsome classmate. But, when Ryouji intervenes in one of Kashima’s fight (and attempt to get off), Kashima realizes that Ryouji might just have a secret “perversion” too…
Sei and Kanao have been friends since middle school, and now, they are roommates in college and look out for each other. But when Sei discovers Kanao’s secret, things take a big turn for their relationship – not only in friendship but also in sex. It turns out that public sex turns Kanao on, and Sei indulges him, thinking that they were just friends with benefits. But when their neighbor, Konno, expresses his interest in the two’s relationship, including their sex escapades, things get a bit more complicated than usual.
Mine thought his high school life would be just like a movie. He would fall in love, confess, and have a girlfriend.
But, that’s not how Mine’s high school love story goes.
Instead, Mine meets Hachikaku, a fellow student suffering from erectile dysfunction. Through a series of movie-esque jumps, Mine rouses Hachikaku’s slumbering junior.
Sakura has been called ‘beautiful’ countless times. The only other person to rival him in that aspect is Yukihira. Sakura fell for him at first sight to the point he stalks Yukihira almost every day and attempts to confess despite being socially awkward. When one of his attempts to get closer to Yukihira resulted in a kiss, Sakura may have awakened a different side of the princely Yukihira.
Playboy Ryouya met the cold Io in one of their college group parties. While trying to be friendly, Ryouya was suddenly taken aback when Io commented that he stunk. It turned out that Io has a strong sense of smell, and he told Ryouya his natural scent was actually erotic. Things went off after that, and the two find themselves in a relationship. Ryouya finds himself loving Io too much, but sometimes, he can’t help but be unsure of how Io really feels.
Yoshino is gay, thirty, and definitely not flirty – he’s never even dated anyone. He seems to have accepted the fact that he’ll die alone, until one night, in a gay bar for the first time in his life, he meets young, charming silver-haired Rou and grabs some drinks with him. Yoshino is drawn to Rou’s mysterious charm and they spend the night together talking…one thing leads to another and suddenly that’s not the only thing they’re doing tonight…? A sloppy, happy love story between a handsome college student playing the game of love the easy way, and a working adult who has yet to know what love is.
The second son in a family of alphas, Shu Iwashiro expects to be just like his father and brother. Shu’s life and bright future shatter when he discovers he is an omega. Pressured by his family to hide his true nature, Shu pretends to be a beta. Every day, Shu hides that he is an omega from even his closest friend (and alpha), Kazushi. But, can Shu keep the facade up when his heat begins?
Born into a sheltered, prestigious family, Hayato has never had much contact with the simpler luxuries of life – good fast food and even better, sex! Lacking someone who would guide him, Hayato drags his classmate Kei along for the ride – but why does Kei have to teach him both? An anthology of high school romance stories that show us love isn’t that bothersome after all.
Behind on his bills and barely surviving, dirt-poor college student Satou just wants a break. He wants a job, any job that would pay up, super fast! When Kaname and Hata offered a part-time job doing research with them, Satou thought he’s finally struck gold. But he probably should’ve asked for the fine print, because the research is on BL, specifically male sexual pleasure – and he’s the test subject!
Suzuki’s barely settled into his new apartment when a drunk man appears on his doorstep, saying he reminded him of his ex while trying to steal a kiss. Suzuki can’t just leave this stranger out in the cold and decides to take him in for the night, where he doles out some pretty sound advice for a drunk guy. Empowered by his new “friend’s” words, Suzuki goes to work, where he finds out who the guy from yesterday was – Shiga, his new boss, and his big sister’s ex!
