Publishers Weekly
After suffering from amnesia after a traffic accident at 14, Hirofumi suddenly regains his memory two years later and forgets the events of his life while he had amnesia. To recover these memories, Hirofumi reads through a journal that he's kept, consisting of letters to himself, and finds out that for the past two years, he's had a boyfriend. Shocked to find out that he's gay, Hirofumi struggles with his forgotten past and his persistent boyfriend, Daigo, who refuses to give up their relationship. Eiki is the author of the previous yaoi manga The Art of Loving (and coincidentally, the granddaughter of former Japanese prime minister Noboru Takeshita), and she has a talent for depicting boys in love. She manages the sexual and romantic tension between her characters with grace, alluding to the passion and hormonal drive of adolescence through dialogue rather than graphic content. Her artistic style mixes the activity and energy typical of boys' love books for teens with the sophistication of titles normally reserved for older readers. The result reflects adolescent energy without cluttering the page. (Aug.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

I've been following Eiki Eiki's works for a little whilenow, mostly through her various doujins she's drawn and written, especially for fandoms such as Gundam Seed, and was quite surprised when I saw one of her works published in the US. I read it and, despite the fact that one volume isn't nearly enough room to create a heart-wrenching story about lovers, Eiki Eiki does a pretty good job! I'm a personal fan of some of the more angst-ridden stories, and 'Dear Myself' is anything but angst, with the exception of the last chapter. But that's light angst, and nothing very serious. The story revolves around Hirofumi, who's lost his memory, not once but twice! And, wouldn't you know, that the person who helps him find out more about himself is himself? That's a long way of saying 'Just Read The Story,' since I don't really want to give away the plot or anything important like that. Let's just say that we're all thankful for happy endings and that we don't have a family like Hirofumi's....
