Hiei and Kurama: Out and About
Bokura ni Matsuwaru Etc. – Kyuugou
Iku and Keita are childhood buddies. Naturally, having been friends for as long as they can remember, when one started to play baseball, so did the other. During their final year in middle school, Keita’s baseball career abruptly ended as a result of the severe injuries he sustained when saving Iku from being hit by a truck. Presently, they go to the same high school. But ever since that accident, Iku has distanced himself from both the game and his friend, presumably out of guilt. What does Keita think about this? It also contains a couple of other short stories such as Utsukushii Asu and Sakura No Junrei.
The first story and it’s follow-up at the end of the volume was especially cute. Full of awkwardness and school boy moments. I love how the author showed the perspective of both Iku and Keita, their fears and hopes for the future. A debut collection for your shounen-ai needs.
