"The Art of Loving" is by the famous author Eiki Eiki and has only 2 volumes.
The main characters in this manga are Yutaka and Tohno. And it is set in the future (when they are around 25) in the beginning but switches back to the past when they were in High School (around 17-18).
In the beginning we are introduced to Tohno who is picking up women at a bar, on his way home he meets Yutaka and dumps the woman to spend the night with the `only person he'll love' as he sees everyone else he's with as physical relationship not emotional.
Afterwards, Yutaka relives his past when he first met the man of his desire.
As a young man, Yutaka relied on a certain `release' to keep him in order, he was in the top 3 of his year and an elite student but he hid behind this and his heritage to the Fujiwara name. Underneath he smokes and doesn't care much for anything but won't let anyone know. One day, a new student, Tohno, arrives and changes his life. Yutaka begins to realize he has no feelings for women and begins to `release' himself to the thought of his newfound friend. As Tohno begins to get accepted at school, he seems to `leave' Yutaka, which he cannot take and begins to fail at his exams and drops to the 60s. Tohno wants to help but Yutaka wants him nowhere near him.
After an accident, this however changes when Yutaka gets the chance to have the object of his desire living near him, which he takes and confesses that he wants him.
End of Manga.
Overall this Manga was a nice change from some of DMP's choices. The art is lovely and the curly hair of Tohno is a quiet appealing change - most characters in Manga have straight or spiky hair.
I recommend this to Yaoi Fans, though there aren't many romp scenes, there are a lot of masturbation ones featuring Yutaka figuring out whom he is.
