Junjo Romantica
Junjou Romantica / 純情ロマンチカ

It’s another pure love BL title which was written by the author of The World's Greatest First Love! The main character, a high school student, asked his older brother to ask one of his friends, who is a talented novelist, to teach him study.

This title focuses more on the deep relationship, compared to The World's Greatest First Love. The worldview is a little narrower too (meaning less characters appearing)! There are the same characters who appear in both titles so it would be even more interesting if you read both~!!
