    Well, now that i read all the long summaries, i can speak about the story.

    It is really deep and serious, sometimes too serious for elementary boys' lives. Don't expect the anime hints of bromance in the light novel.

    The plot is good and well developed. It presents the evolution of their friendship with comedy and even some tragedy in their past.

    The last chapter almost made me cry.

    Thumbs up for the book, i really enjoyed it.
