I’m sorry for spamming this manga all over your dash, because I need it on my blog. AKSDJHSJKDJ I LOVE THIS SERIES (this is just a fanart, but gosh it’s beautiful).
Golden Days is a shoujo-shounen ai manga by TAKAO Shigeru, about Souma Mitsuya, a normal high school guy who has a troublesome mother, thrown back to his grandfather’s past to save his grandfather’s bestfriend. Mitsuya went to the past and replaced Yoshimitsu (his grandfather), and taken to the Kasuga household by Kasuga Jin, a half-foreigner guy who claimed as Yoshimitsu’s bestfriend, and also admitted that Jin is in love with Yoshimitsu. Although Mitsuya doesn’t know what’s happening in that era, Mitsuya knows one thing for sure: he’s there to help Jin.
I cried after I read this, especially the last volume (I bought the books irl). It’s not always showcasing the boys’ love, but there’s also friendship, family, and straight loves as well xD the drama comedy is mixed well, and the art is beautiful~ recommended!
Jin x Mitsuya, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
Why aren’t you mad? I blamed everything on you.
…I am Mitsuya. Your friend. I will always stand by you. Even if there’s something you need to know, I know this. That’s all that I can say.
…why… is my chest trembling? Your body… feels warm and makes me dizzy.
It’s the fever! Must be the fever!
Souma Mitsuya, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
Though there’s something I can’t tell you, I will never lie to you. I will always, always stand by you.
I won’t let you go alone next time.
Kasuga Jin, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
Having the same memories is like having proof of being connected with someone. If Mitsu has lost them, how can I be sure of them? I can’t stand it.
…But, you are Mitsuya, and that’s that.
Kasuga Aiko, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
You’re like a completely different person from the old Knight, but you’re still nice in the same way!
Souma Yuriko, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
You’re saying we should treat him as someone else altogether? …Then, I’ll think of it as getting a new little brother.
Kei, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
Once it’s broken, it can’t go back to the way it was.
But, it can still move. See!
Setsu, Golden Days (Takao Shigeru)
Take it someplace else, you pervert! What customer?! Fondling a woman’s behind is hardly appropriate! Our shop sells teas, wines, and beverages, not flesh!
