What comes surprising is Ritsu’s interest in purchasing the articles of New Frontier Publishing Club which later revealed that he’s been following the club. He likes its issue reports, especially what Masumi has written, ‘What-ifs of joining a pyramid scheme’. Masumi got surprised and suddenly offered Ritsu to join the club. At the restaurant, you can hear some ladies talking about Ritsu’s physique which they found him such a hottie. You can tell he is, as Masumi got stunned by their first encounter earlier that day. Tsuyuguchi, one of the members of the club asked Ritsu, why such a good-looking man joined a dull club like New Frontier.

In Masumi’s room, Masumi wondered Ritsu, if he has a girlfriend and had been hanging out with him lately. Ritsu replied, not now as maintaining a relationship is such troublesome, and preferred to study and have ‘me’ time. In addition to that, he enjoys their movie binge-watch. After answering Masumi, Ritsu asked him, if he has a girlfriend as well. Masumi automatically answered, do I have one? He’s not aware of what comes next, as Ritsu replied, yes and finds Masumi cute. Hearing such a compliment, flustered Masumi denies what he heard. However, Ritsu said he’s telling a fact and finds him unpopular because of his gloomy attitude. He continue, asking him if Masumi had an experienced, to which Masumi answered he was still a virgin and asked him if it that a problem. Masumi smiles behind Ritsu as he hears Are you a virgin? , not at all as you have a lot of charms. And stunned after hearing, if he wants to have a girlfriend, he can help him.

Later that night in his bed, Masumi imagines that he is about to kiss Ritsu and comes to his senses, which eventually leads to arousal. He realized that he was probably gay.

At Building 2’s canteen, Masumi and Yosuke found Ritsu sitting next to Freshman Ms. Campus. Yosuke finds the two such a perfect couple. He jokingly said, Ritsu must be so popular he dates girls one after another. He also added, have you heard the rumor, in every club he’s joining got disbanded because he’s a playboy? An hour later, in Masumi’s room, Masumi never failed to surprise Ritsu with his neat handwriting that’s why he rely on him. You’re good in sports and instruments, how come your handwriting is a flaw?, Masumi said to him. Ritsu starts massaging Masumi’s said and whisper, he’s also good at massage. Flustered step back and complains it’s tickling.

Later that night, Masumi wraps up writing an article and Ritsu just arrived from the convenience store. It’s getting late so Ritsu asked Masumi if he can sleep over. Initially, Masumi finds a reason for Ritsu not to stay but it’s not valid. Masumi sits on his bed with a can of beer in his hand. Ritsu finds Masumi acting weird and asked if he did something wrong to him. Masumi answered, nothing and he’s just tired. Ritsu didn’t accept his reasoning ask if Masumi if he was in love with someone else. Masumi got bewildered. Ritsu put his hand to Masumi and said, he has also a specialty, he can tell if someone falls in love with him. He slowly moves his face toward Masumi and the two starts exchanging kisses. Ritsu confirmed, Masumi is indeed in love with him.

For first impression… the concept is quite similar to what we’ve seen in Filipino and Thai BL but its synergy serves differently. With the actors’ acting skills, chemistry, and sexual tension are incomparable. Let’s see how their story deepens in the following episodes.
