But when he pays a visit to his new client, instead of being greeted by the brewery’s notoriously cantankerous old owner, he meets Nakagawa, the handsome—but icy—man of his dreams.

    Touko Kawai is one of those mangakas I've read a lot, and whose art I have a weak spot for. I love the feeling of this story. It contrasts how Japanese are taught to behave, as opposed to Westerners, since Haruna was born in LA. Mind you, not all Westerners are the same. I've worked with tourists, and even Occidental Europeans are remarkably different. But yes, Japanese are taught to be more reserved, modest, controlled. Haruna is more straightforward and outgoing, which can be taken as rudeness, Touko Kawai is one of those mangakas I've read a lot, and whose art I have a weak spot for.

Haruna is more straightforward and outgoing, which can be taken as rudeness, but also makes him easy to understand. Nakagawa is a more dishonest type, that keeps silent and holds back, definitely more of a Japanese man. Haruna is endearing, as is Nakagawa's family and the 2 Haruna's friendship. I love the sake brewery setting. Everytime I reread this, I cheer Haruna on. I just want him to succeed in his love. I do dislike the whole "tie your lover down" part, although in this case (this volume?), it isn't sick possessiveness. I understand people are all different, with different values; but seeing as I'm very much open-minded, I can't see the problem with remaining just friends with an ex.

    One of the best and sweetest love stories in this genre I've ever read. It leaves a pleasant and warm aftertaste. In times it's sweet and ever so gentle but also touching, funny, hot & educative in a way (you'll definitely learn something about sake there). I read whole three volumes at once & reread many times so I'm going to cheat a bit & leave same review under all three volumes as I can't really separate them and I'm totally in love with this story. It's also a story I go to when One of the best and sweetest love stories in this genre I've ever read. It leaves a pleasant and warm aftertaste. In times it's sweet and ever so gentle but also touching, funny, hot & educative in a way (you'll definitely learn something about sake there). I read whole three volumes at once & reread many times so I'm going to cheat a bit & leave same review under all three volumes as I can't really separate them and I'm totally in love with this story. It's also a story I go to when I need to run away from the cruel reality and just relax with something joyful, hopeful & warm. I can describe these three volumes as the beginning & growing of love in the 1st volume (where sincere & charming Mutsuki wins over & melts iced broken Shu's heart and their love begins). In the 2nd volume their love blossoms as they also learn to compromise with each other as well as accept & understand their differences & views on life & romance - they deepen their bond and trust. Finally in the 3rd volume we see the harvest time - sweet & tasty like ripe apple. We see true love between two adequate adults in a strong loving relationship where they care & support each other & also are taking another big step forward. Three volumes are really not enough - I wish there were more, not because the story is unfinished (because it is finished in a satisfying way) but because it's so addictively charming that you'll definitely want more, plus the drawing style is wonderful too. So I'll recommend it to those who want to read a love story between two mature adults that feels real & believable, warm & without unnecessary drama, with sweet sexy scenes & sake. It will definitely leave you pleased.

    I just needed something sweet and kind of mindless to read during the hectic mess of Summer Preview Guide, and this more than fit the bill. The relationship is consensual (although one guy is prickly) and the background story of a sake brewery is interesting. Just an all-around nice read.

    I really enjoyed all three volumes. The initial crush happens a little too fast for my taste but other than that the plotting, characters, setting, everything was delightful. Now I want to drink some sake...

    Ich liebe im Grund alles was Touko Kawai zeichnet, aber Der Duft der Apfelblüte ist mein absoluter Favorit. Besonders Haruna mit seiner positiven und süßen Art sagt mir zur. Die Geschichte ist im Grunde nichts besonderes, aber die Umsetzung dieser einfachen Geschichte ist super und die Zeichnungen sind wie immer toll. (Die Dynamik zwischen Haruna und Nakagawas Opa ist übrigens eine meiner Lieblingsaspekte in der ganzen Reihe.)

    This was definitely fun and cute, and I love Toko Kawai's drawing style. It'd have even better if the story had moved just a little more slowly.

    Pushy uke with previous experiences with men makes a straight guy fall in love with him. I usually like virgin ukes, but I still liked the couple. 4 stars
