The Ring Finger Falls Silent
The Left Hand Dreams of Him
Only The Ring Finger Knows
Not only is Yuichi the most mysterious, sought-after guy at school, he’s got an excellent shot at getting into any prestigious University…and no one knows this better than his secret love, Wataru. But instead of a vacation break spent celebrating beneath the fragrant sway of summer blossoms, both boys must surrender to Yuichi’s grueling study schedule. How can they possibly sweeten the deal? A bet that promises to take their young relationship to the next level is in the works, but Wataru complicates matters when the very ring that symbolizes their precious bond goes missing. Prying girls and wisecracking best friends only fuel the flames of gossip, and soon the small white lies that were only meant to protect the heart of Wataru’s beloved become poison arrows. With the test and their relationship on the line, can the boys hold on long enough to survive the sticky meltdown of their longest summer?

First is the story. If I have to sum it up with three words, it would be- heartbreaking, sweet, and unforgettable. If I have to say something else, well, I’ll say, it made my heart skip a lot of times, made me experience love, showed me a different side of cliched characters and gave me a story to read that kept me wanting more. Maybe the concept of a popular person falling in love with not-so-popular one is common, but like many others, the story has depth.
I would have preferred it if it was first person point of view though. Coz even if the author was able to tell us their emotions, sometimes it’s not enough. There were times when you just want to know how a character feel.
Um.. had I mentioned that even though in the novel they were making love, the description were not perverted but sweet and pure? Well, I have now.
I think I had said enough. The score is 9.8/10
Second is the art. Some parts were drawn. I must say that whoever thought of what scenes to draw, clearly didn’t want people to buy the novel. The drawn parts were the I-don’t-really-care-about-this-part scenes. Which is frustrating. SOmetimes you want to see a certain scene drawn and you look for the drawings only to be disappointed. Haahh..
Anyway, the drawings are also off. It’s not like the manga where I fall in love with every next page. But the covers are good.
Score is 7/10.
Over all, I think that Only the Ring Finger Knows should be watch by everyone. Either you love boys love or not, you will still enjoy it. It’s a pure, and sweet love story that will forever stay in my memories.
