Enoki is practically the poster-boy for what a typical nerd looks like: short and slight, complete with big round glasses and social awkwardness. His main hobby is making video games, and he's used to not having many friends at school. Then he meets Shirataki, a former member of the baseball club and his exact opposite: tall, muscular and sporty. Despite their many differences, the spark of friendship between the two boys begins to grow into something more...
This Wonderful Season With You was a cute and delightful BL manga. I like the nerd x cool kid trope anyway, and it worked nicely here. Both characters came across well, and the development of their relationship felt naturally and well paced. The illustration was good too. This is mostly a sweet tale, but there is a raunchier bonus chapter at the end for those who like their BL a little hotter. Recommended for fans of BL tales at the sweeter end of the spectrum and with deeper character and story development.
I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
