Aki-Sora...oh boy. Blood-related incest, yuri, exhibitionism, orgy...this manga seems to be trying to cover every sexual genre in existence. With that said, there's a solid story beneath it all that will have you asking yourself many questions. (Edit 2/1/2012: Manga is complete; review is final.)
The story is about Sora, a middle school boy, trying to come to terms with having a sexual relationship with his older sister, Aki. It eventually goes on to cover his various sexual exploits, though the majority of the story focuses on Aki. The story is choppy; certain chapters could benefit from being re-ordered. My criticisms aside, the actual story deals with mature issues and questions, and mature readers will definitely enjoy this manga. Younger readers should stay away from this one; it can be very confusing at times, not to mention the blatant sexual content.
Nothing bad, nothing overly special. The characters are all nice to look at, and the background art is done adequately. My main issue was how absurdly feminine looking Sora is. Sora is most definitely a trap, and this topic is a cause of humor in the series.
Aki-Sora is of the smut genre. There are blatant sex scenes in it, and most of them are between Sora and Aki, which is repulsive to some people. I mean, art-wise, the scenes were well-drawn, but I was bothered by it. I got over it a little by telling myself it's just their way of showing their love for each other. It was just a little more physical than I would have preferred.
This manga is VERY character driven. The manga's main focus is about forbidden relationships. The two main questions the manga asks the reader to consider are "Why is it wrong for siblings to love each other" (other than the obvious biological problems their child would have) and "What does it mean for two people to have sex?" The characters each have their own point of views on these questions, and it really gets you thinking. These characters are very well developed in very short a time.
The story is as much psychological as it is sexual. Most of the characters of the story are in love with someone society forbids them to be with. It is REALLY interesting to see the inner battles a character has with himself/herself over what they need/want to do. Do they abide by the rules of society, or pursue their love interest?
Aki-Sora has the right balance of ecchi, comedy, and romance. It's a mature title. The ecchi isn't composed of panty shots or "oops I tripped and landed on your boobs", and the comedy isn't composed of nosebleeds or "oops I tripped and landed on your boobs and you hit me halfway to the moon".
An above-average manga of the ecchi genre. This manga is seinen, not shounen, and is aimed at a more mature audience. There aren't many seinen mangas out there, and even fewer of those are of the ecchi/romance variety. This manga is a step up from shounen romance manga. When you finally get sick of characters taking 200 chapters to FINALLY get together, manga like these are what you are looking for.

This manga should really be labeled as 'Hentai' and NOT just 'Mature'.
What is the plot of this? I really don't know. It's just Sora being all 'Oh this is wrong but I love her,' and Aki being all 'Oh I love him so how is this wrong' yada-yada-yada. All the other characters introduced was just to get Sora exposed to all the sexual things people are into. Like orgies and what not. Or that weird girl who's an exhibitionist.
I'm not talking about the sex-scenes. But the rest of the art is really gorgeous. Especially that last chapter? Man, that is art. True art.
Sora has got to be the weakest and most indecisive main character of a shounen I have ever seen. He cannot stay 'faithful' (are they even in a boyfriend-girlfriend status?!) with his older sister and has sex with about every girl introduced (including his twin sister) and he doesn't do ANYTHING to push them off. You would think the obsession he has with her mounts to something, anything. Nope. He just goes along with the orgy party and freaking enjoys it.
I tried to be open-minded to people who do incest or orgies and what not, but the way this manga portrays them? They make it seem as if they are ready to do anything for the sake of sex.
All the moral crap that was spewed in the beginning? Complete bull crap. It was just to give the manga the facade that there was something greater than just having incest or sex with hot chicks.
I swear, the only reason why this isn't a one is because of the art.
If you like seeing people have sex with whomever, read this manga. If you cannot bear to even THINK about incest, STAY AWAY FROM THIS MANGA LIKE ITS A TERMINAL DISEASE THAT KILLS YOU WITH A SINGLE TOUCH.
Do NOT come here thinking it'll have a great storyline or miraculously Sora and Aki are NOT blood-related cause IT IS NOT and WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
Authored by the same mangaka, both feature similar stories, characters, settings, and artwork. Although A Wish of My Sister is hentai, Aki-Sora is borderline. Moreover, the male protagonists of both series are highly feminine in appearance and persona.
Both by the same mangaka, same premise, same looking characters. Although Aki-sora can almost be considered hentai, there are still no full exposures unlike A Wish of My Sister.
Same mangaka, the 2 are too similar, Aki-Sora is the slightly diluted version of H A Wish of my Sister
