Reception's Briana Lawrence criticises the manga's ending saying, "the ending for “Happiness Recommended” is decent, but the ending for “Another Rainy Day” felt incomplete".[4] ActiveAnime's Rachel Bentham commends the manga for its "fun, appealing art style".[5] Coolstreak Comics' Leroy Douresseaux comments that "the combative gay romance between Yakiharu and Makoto is funny and gentle – more romantic (shounen-ai manga) than explicit (yaoi manga)".[6]
