yusura ai anthology

Yusura Ai Anthology volume 1.

A collection of stories by Ai Yusura. Contains the following stories:

Our Secret: Times are tough for Keita and Noboru as they duck the eyes of their fellow students to meet up on the school grounds—and it’s certainly not fun for Noboru to have to watch his popular boyfriend in the halls between classes. When Noboru finally finds himself hanging out at Keita’s place with their mutual friend in tow, will he be able to keep it together?

An RPG Romance: Teased as the school’s “hero” for being the only one with the guts to stand up to the super popular, super capable “Demon King” Nagawa Mao, Hirase’s about at his limit—until he gets stuck studying for a make-up test with none other than the Demon King himself in charge of the study session.

Collar Me: Honor student Seita doesn’t know how to react when his touchy-feely punk friend Kaya says he’s in love with him, pushing Kaya away out of aversion to being in a gay relationship. What exactly does ‘I love you’ mean coming from Kaya, anyway?

The Roommates’ Guide to Love: Yuuta has plans to go on a date with a girl—and consults his roommate Shinji for a bit of ‘hands-on study’ in order to ensure that his date goes off without a hitch. But when Shinji kisses him during their lesson, Yuuta has no idea what to make of it…
