Sleeping Bunny

Description

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.)

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

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

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 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.

Spoiler

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

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.

It was a really sweet short novel. Even though it's a different story than the one I usually read, I really enjoyed it. I liked the writing style of the characters. Apart from these, I would like to say that the teacher-student relationship in the book is not at the forefront and is not romanticized even when it is in the foreground.

Wow! I fcking cried! The reality of these emotions are in point. Both MC and ML they have such good personalities yet so fragile. The confusion and the angst.

However, some of the pronouns and the perspective used in the story are not clear and I was confused at many points on who was talking blahblah.. Its still a great read.

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.

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

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...
Spoiler

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 bu*t 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

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*

this started out pretty good, and some of the emotions are written pretty realistically, but just throw it onto the endless pile of bl that casually treats emotional manipulation and r*pe as a part of a "sweet romance". Blech

At first, I hesitated to read even the synopsis because of the cover art 😂 I passed this novel by several times just cause the cover was so horrible. But then I finally read the synopsis. After reading the last part of the synopsis where they say that the cover art is atrocious and to still just read the story. I burst out laughing and felt quite relieved that I wasn't alone whoe felt that. Bless the person who wrote that! ❤ Now for the story, I had some trouble reading... more>> it chapter vise on the site, so that was troublesome. But anyways, the story for me was alright. I have read something similar before and it was also a short story too so I didn't feel that interested in this one unfortunately. But it was still ok so. <<less
