How come nobody's reviewed this yet?? Lol anyways...
Shounen dolls is about a girl who can talk to dolls (the ability, of which, gave her many "she's crazy" or "A doll fanatic O.O" comments), and her 2 "guard-dolls". At first look you'd think that the whole story is about finding Yuki, her lost doll, BUUUT it's not LoL (They found him in.. *cough* 1st chapter *cough*) Anyway, the story doesn't really have muxh to it, I haven't seen any ACTUAL storyline yet.
For me this is something light and fun to read when you can't find anything else.
Even though "Lovers Doll" is a yaoi manga and "Shōnen Dolls" is a shōjo manga, there are similarities between them. Like the fact that both mangas have a doll theme and the focus is on the relationship between the master and the doll(s). The affection between master and doll(s) also makes it possible for the dolls to turn into humans in both mangas, though the dolls in "Shōnen Dolls" can only turn into humans during the night.
"Lovers Doll" is a yaoi manga but I think even people who usually don't read that genre would find LV cute and enjoyable, because it's not as hard-core as other yaoi mangas! :)
Dolls turning into a Human, but in Shounen Dolls the dolls turn into a Human in Night time.
Except 'Shounen Dolls' is not Yaoi
Both Lovers Doll and Shounen Dolls have the same concept of dolls being alive after gaining affections from their owners.
Both managas are sweet, funny and definitely enjoyable :)
(Personally, i prefer Lovers doll more because it had more cute moments)
PS: Dont like yaoi? Never mind! You can still enjoy Lovers Doll! :) Lovers Doll is one of the lightest yaoi i had ever read that only have "bed" scenes at the bonus chapter. Lovers Doll focus more on its plot and cute moments , so you can definitely enjoy this even if you are not a huge fan of BL!
The stories are very different, but in both, the girls get very attractive familiars and get involved in all sorts of supernatural events
- Both of them have two guys protecting/working with the main girl (in SDs they're dolls and in KH they're familiars)
- In both the main girl weilds some kind of power (the ablilty to cleanse evil)
- They both deal with whether romances between a human and the other (dolls/familiar) are possible (the main character likes one of the guys)
- Both the guys in the both the mangas really care for and like the girl
