Sleeping Bunny


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

To impress the girl he has a crush on, Kouichi (a high schooler) lets her use his address in a gay ad. Soon, a reply comes, and Kouichi finds himself meeting with the man he made a joke of, intending to reject him. But he was surprised to find out that the man is actually a teacher in his school! Hirokazu is a really nice man. He seemed so lonely that Kouichi just couldn’t find it in himself to hurt him. One date leads to another, and Kouichi falls for his teacher for real… the problem is, Hirokazu doesn’t know that Kouichi is a student at his workplace.

A sweet, down-to-earth story.

(The book art is quite atrocious, ignore it and read chapter 1.)

I enjoyed it, nice easy short read, really read like a manga/anime to me. It wasn't perfect but for being as old as it is I think it aged well (other than the phone # part, I mean everyone today has cellphones and you would see the other's number)

The extra chapter was a nice conclusion to wrap everything up in a nice bow. I will say if the story was longer without fleshing out the characters I probably would have rated it far worse.

Sleeping Bunny is a sweet short story in which the Author surprisingly managed to draw a complete plot and flesh out the characters very well, despite the minuscule amount of chapters. The story is also very realistic, free of fantasy factors and properly narrate the love story between men in the current world. The reason why this novel doesn't become more popular is probably because the premises and characters are quite cliche. But I consider all that as less significant than the author's narrative, thus the 5 star rate.

TL; DR,... more>> it is a very nice story which you must read if you are a fan of sweet love story or shounen ai. <<less

this was pretty cute? a low-key hurt-comfort with not too much thought process involved. it is NC-R18, so that dulled my pleasure at reading it... This story would’ve been better entirely without the po*n bits.

I thought that this was a really short and sweet story. There were a lot of cute scenes, my favorite being the beach scene. The only real downside of this novel is that you don't get to see as much of their earliest interactions as I would have liked; I love watching two characters fall in love slowly. But overall it was a pretty nice read.

A heartwarming story, told in a realistic and bittersweet way. I really love the way this author narrates the story. I can imagine each scenes like the way it should be shown in manga panels/anime.

Some parts of the translation is just a bit confusing, I don't know who's talking with who. But it's still readable, better than MTL. I appreciate the translator's hardwork since it's rare for someone to pick up japanese novels and classics ones at that. Thank you for sharing this piece of art with us.

Ps: Please read... more>> Hako no Naka, it's a masterpiece from the same author 🥺 <<less

It's a love story that despite having few chapters, the writer manages to convey the emotions and feelings in detail.

I had high expectations seeing the reviews but now I'm kinda of disappointed. The MC annoyed me many times he was so fickleness, ML was such a sweet guy, he deserved more.


The last chapter takes place 8 years in the future, you can even see how MC matured and become a better person... but still left a bad taste in my mouth

It's a sweet lovestory that feels a bit cliche, because of the similarities to many yaoi manga I have read before but despite the cliches, it was an enjoyable read and I am glad this is a happy end too...

my favourite was the epilogue which is 8yrs after... very very sweet

I loved the whole story!! It's the classic BL romance anyone can get into, although I advice those you dont like the common "misunderstand leads to heartbreak" plot to be aware in advance to get tissues cause its sooo worth the tears and snot reading. I personally am a cry baby, so I needed a butt load of tissues for this one because its heartaching reading.

Gasp! How did I not noticed this masterful piece of world! I cried I laughed and I fearfully held on even when I knew it was ending. It was so short my heart protested at the dissatisfaction of an end of those magical words but what is never ending was their love

Very sweet story and so well translated! Even though it's not a very long story, the chapters are not short.

The story has a slice of life feel and the romance develops at a slow even pace feels very realistic.

It's an OK story. I would have liked it more if there were one or two more chapters before the epilogue (ala slice of life, no angst needed) about their lives after high school graduation. As it was, although it was a happy ending, it felt incomplete. I thought the best friend would have made an interesting side story.

Generally if you are looking for a sweet story to read, this will fit the bill.

I’m surprised there are no ratings or reviews for this, as it is quite a heartwarming read. This could be a manga. Even though it is only 5 chapters, it tells a complete story that feels neither too fast or too slow. The characters are likeable and their viewpoints can be easily understood by the reader. 5*
