Climb on to My Shoulders, by Yuhki Takada

Trey and Paul are up-and-coming programmers with their minds set on fame and fortune! However, they need to actually finish writing a program first. The two decide to make a program that can play tic-tac-toe, but all their hard work is destroyed by the clueless yet smooth-talking MJ. In spite of their rough first meeting, MJ turns out to actually be useful to Trey and Paul. He even manages to land them the intimidating job of making class-scheduling software! 
Misadventures and romantic tension abound in this adorable comedy that’s set in the 1960s!

Behind the Scenes: I'm the Big Brother

Welcome to our inaugural Behind the Scenes post!  The first manga we're going to take a look at is Kei Kanai's I'm the Big Brother, which became available on various platforms in January 2012.  The purpose of this post is to be a sort of a "Did you know...?"  I'll be sharing some bonus content that didn't make it into the book, and explaining some of the interesting references within.

Behind the Scenes 

Nao has taken care of his two younger twin br
others, Tetsuto and Asuma, for as long as he can remember. Thanks to his care and affection, they’ve grown up into two fine gentlemen who are now super popular at school. However, they’re both totally obsessed with their big brother! The two constantly vie for the innocent and oblivious Nao’s attention. Their competition goes into high gear during the school field day. With Nao as the prize, neither Tetsuto nor Asuma can afford to lose! Also included is the short story In the Soup, where the amazing cook Wataru realizes that he may not know as much about food as he thinks he does.
