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 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

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.

User Recommendations

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.
Foreign love affair, what more 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.
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
Both mangas involve the ukes being sexually taken advantage of by another man, and are ultimately saved by the seme.
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.
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
