Kiss Blue – Kinoshita Keiko
A conventional tale of “friendship becomes something more” when one friend secretly falls in love with his best friend who’s quite a womanizer. Things start to change when that friend knows that his friend likes him, and they find themselves feeling awkward with this discovery.
A big boo to the womanizing part but the story is cute plus it has a nice bonus side-story.
