Hardworking, good-looking, and heir to daddy’s company, Shimano thinks his life’s just about perfect. Except that he’s working from the bottom up in the company, and he can’t seem to get along with Kurosawa, his manager. Competent but flippant, Kurosawa always seems to pay extra attention to Shimano, whether it’s teasing him to make him work harder or covering up for his mistakes, which of course drives Shimano crazy. So he has Kurosawa firmly blacklisted until he realizes that Kurosawa’s private life isn’t a bundle of roses and begins to sympathize…and how are you supposed to hate someone you sympathize with, anyway?

The story is continued in the last two chapters of Tight Rope.

Sekaiichi Hatsukoi ~Onodera Ritsu no Baai~

Onodera Ritsu has just transferred from his father’s publishing company to Marukawa Shoten. Assigned to the shoujo manga division, he crosses path with the person he’d least expected to meet. Takano Masamune is the editor-in-chief of the division Ritsu’s been assigned to, and the two seem get off on the wrong foot right from the very start when Takano unexpectedly kisses him. However, there is more to than what meets the eye: Takano is actually Saga, Ritsu’s senpai and high school love — whom Ritsu had thought to have played him for a fool by taking his affections for granted when he confessed and summarily dumped him.

This storyline is loosely connected to Junjou Romantica, since Usami Akihiko is mentioned a few times as an author, and Isaka Ryuichiro occasionally shows up too.

Sekaiichi Hatsukoi ~Kisa Shouta no Baai~

The second story tells about Ritsu’s colleague Kisa Shouta
who works with him at Marukawa Shoten’s Emerald shoujo
manga department and ever smiling, suave and irresistably handsome Kou Yukina.

Kento is mild-mannered, straightforward and quite honestly, a bit boring. At 26 he’s landed his first full-time position teaching at high school and does everything he can to make his grandparents, who took him in to raise after his parents’ tragic death, proud of him. Unfortunately Kento is gay… and they ~don’t~ approve.

Enter Akira, a ticking-time bomb with a perpetual evil smirk, a ridiculously flamboyant wardrobe and a tendency to hit on anything that moves. Akira’s everything Kento isn’t… including drop-dead gorgeous and mindbendingly annoying. It’s almost a miracle that the two of them have been dating for over a year!!

But after all that time, Akira’s still keeping some secrets… secrets that aren’t going to reflect well on Kento’s choice in a partner. Would Kento’s grandparents ever survive the shock of their son dating the child of a sex-worker and an alien? Or will they, as Akira puts it, “cough up their pacemakers”?! Does Kento care more about his family’s opinion of him, or his high-maitanance lover’s deep-seated social inferiority complex?

An extremely sweet (and funny) story of two people who couldn’t be more different, or more perfect for each other
