I have to say sadly i was after loving the ova so much i was dissapointed with the manga. the story felt very rushed at times. Don't get me wrong everything i loved from the anime was there I just honestly feel like the manga could have had alot more.

Though i will admit i loved the side story

Story: 5/10
First off I'm sure a lot of people are big fans of Ayano-sensei's work, to say the least after reading this and a couple other. I don't think I'll be adding to he fan base. I will say that the story had a lot of potential, it had a lot of good ideas worked into it. I liked a lot of the different ideas that she attempted to put into the work, but story-wise it fell apart. It felt rushed and hardly had any context to it, they talked a lot but said little of any real interest. It was a burden, more than read more

i've read the manga and it does rush it really, like seriously you could have waited a little to sudicing your crew member, like i know your drunk but come on! it was like the tenth page when they started this stuff up. but i do have to say it was good. if you like a littl yaio sometimes like me than this is good. but to me this manga is like a one night stand kind of thing. na d why is the gay guy always blonde and some strong dude, like the gangster. But if you like yaio then this is good.

Manga: Ouji to Kotori
Both mangas include a pairing between men of different ethnicity. In OtK, though, it starts out as a slavery bond in which the seme owns the uke, while in IIR it is always a mutual love relationship.

Manga: Taiyou no Kikoushi
Foreign love affair, what can I say? Ikoku Irokoi Romantan is a bit more dramatic maybe and our royalty here is instead the heir to a important yakuza group, but if you're looking for another BL where the culture and social gap are conflicting forces in a love born from a very short meeting, then it's the same bloody thing.

Manga: Honto Yajuu
In this manga there is an attractive yakuza member who attracts attention from men all around him-if you liked the yakuza theme in it then this is a good choice for you

Manga: Kawaita Yoru no Machi wo Oyogu
Both mangas involve the ukes being sexually taken advantage of by another man, and are ultimately saved by the seme.

Manga: Junjou de Wagamama na Kare
Both mangas contain very prideful ukes that despise being misused or ill-treated. In IIR, the uke is molested, and in Junjou the uke is picked on for his small stature and cute face. Both ukes take revenge through means of violence. Junjou, however, is a much lighter, and more humorous read.

Manga: Ai no Gebokutachi
They both have men that got their own pride to deal with. Ai no Gebokutachi is funnier and many ways and at the same time entertaining as well
