I saw the anime before attempting to read the manga. Just to let you know, they're very different.

The manga has some definite non-con that the anime glosses over. Shuichi and Eiri meet at a different point in their life--Shuichi is still in high school for one thing and is living at home with his mother and sister.

Basically, I went into this manga with some preconceived notions of what was going to happen that I immediately had shattered. Your first sign that the manga and anime have diverged? The drawing style is very different--where did my pink haired cutie go???

This was a very average shounen-ai manga that has sentimental value at least as one of the very first of the genre to cross the Japanese-English language barrier. ( )
