I've been hoping for a while now that Viz would license this since they seemed to take a liking to Ono Natsume's work. Though I guess now that it is scanned, I will just buckle and read it. I'm a big fan.
I finally got around to reading the first three chapters of this. I enjoyed what I read, but I think it's still too early to make a proper judgement. For some reason, even though it was in Natsume Ono's signature style(one of them), I thought the art in this story was especially good. It was kind of sketchy, but in a good way. Almost like she drew it fast, because she knew exactly what she wanted to draw and wanted to get it on paper. I can't really explain it.
One thing though. Mangaupdates says that the author is Basso. Does that mean this is going to turn into a boys love manga? Isn't Basso the pen name Natsume Ono uses for Yaoi?
