Synopsis

What happens when a gay art thief and a conservative NATO officer cross paths? Disaster, of course. Dorian is an aristocrat, a thief, and a hedonist; Klaus is a duty-driven espionage agent with no patience for fools. Follow them as they chase each other across the globe -- from Britain to Baghdad, from Alaska to Alexandria, from Moscow to Madrid. Spectacular locations and non-stop adventures await!

Story:

It starts off... strangely. Do NOT judge this manga by its first volume, however. The first story arc is very deceiving in that it's almost like a pilot episode--like a test run. Caesar Gabriel and his friends never make another appearance again (something most fans, myself included, are forever thankful for), and in fact, Dorian takes a role as neither the antagonist or the sole main character. I would say Klaus takes over both Caesar's role as Dorian's love interest, and perhaps even main character. You begin to see a lot more story arcs start off with Klaus by the fifth or sixth volume, although read more

Why not add another review on this manga?A more recent one!

You are about to read my personal review,hoping to help you appreciate more this manga and generally to share my opinion on this.

First of all,I have a weird habit of starting some mangas or animes,watching 2-3 episodes/reading 4-5 chapters and then putting them on hold thinking that "someother time I'll be more in the mood for it",which is pretty true.Not all animes are for any time.The same goes for Eroica.I started reading it about a year or so ago and then after chapter 4 I put it on hold.It wasn't that I didn't like it,not read more

Vaguely speaking, "From Eroica with Love" and "Patalliro!" both spoof spy stories (particularly James Bond) and earlier yaoi/BL manga series, but the commonalities don't end there. In many ways, the variety of humor found in both of these series is quite similar; some of the jokes are slapstick and/or utterly silly, whereas other jokes are quite dry and clever and may require some thought. Also, I find that both series reward their viewers for paying close attention and spotting details; often, something drawn in the backgrounds of scenes in both of these manga have brought smiles to my face. Even the overall atmospheres of both "From Eroica in Love" and "Patalliro!" feel almost identical: one moment, you're biting your nails due to the suspense; the next moment, you're doubled-over in a fit of laughter.

Considering some of the rudimentary similarities of these two series, a decent number of "From Eroica with Love"/"Patalliro!" crossover doujinshi and fanfics are available. And is it a coincidence that both of these series have a cult following in the United States? I think not!

(Also, I thought that I should mention that the artwork both of these series have been heavily criticized by, er, um, younger, anime and manga fans. Yes, I'm very aware that many young'uns think that the artwork of most '70s and '80s manga series is hideous, yet I've never seen any other "classic" shoujo titles receive the amount of bad-mouthing that these two titles have suffered. Yeesh!)
