Synopsis

Ueda Tomoharu is a cop manning a local koban station, and he's quite happy with his job and relatively quiet life until he happens to run into yakuza member Gotouda Aki while chasing down an underwear thief... and is suddenly confessed to! Aki doesn't seem bothered in the least about their ~star-crossed lovers~ status and eagerly dives into a super lovey-dovey relationship with his policeman, but Ueda's about to find out just how dangerous it can be dating a mobster... in more ways than one.

You'd probably over look Honto Yajuu as just another yaoi manga. We all know the ones that have "one-sided" love (when they both love each other) and the cutesy scenes between the two for like 20 chapters before one of them confesses. Then a few chapters later it's like the end. This can't be defined as Honto Yajuu.

Story line/Plot (9) - Honto Yajuu, or Like the Beast, is a yaoi manga published by Yamamoto Kotetsuko. It's about the love story between a policeman, Udea Tomoharu, and the yakuza (basically a mafia member in Japan), Gotouda Aki. Aki meets Udea during a weird event, and the read more

First,why has nobody made a review to this manga?Oh well...Also this may contain some little spoilers.
I should start by saying that Yamamoto Kotetsu's work is just perfect..in my opinion.And Honto Yajuu is no exeption.
The story is about Ueda Tomoharu,a policeman and Gotouda Aki,a yakuza,and their cute love story.To be honest when I first saw the cover of the manga I was skeptical and I just said no..I mean a policeman and a yakuza?But for some reason I start it and then it became my favourite.I didn't thought it could be this good.
The art isn't the best,but I love it.Kotetsu's way of drawing is very cute!

I'm sorry I'll be a bit biased here.

Honto Yajuu is simply----- cute. F*ck man, I don't know what to say about this manga besides cute. This literally has 'cute' written all over it. Everything in this manga is just cute. Wait, have I mentioned that this manga is really cute already? Looks like I haven't. So yes, this manga is freakin' cute.

Story - This is a BL-- *coughs* pardon me, yaoi manga. So it's about a guy falling in love with another guy and do sexy things together. Compared to other yaoi mangas I have read, Honto Yajuu has the lightest, cutest story. It's pretty read more

Like The Beast (Honto Yajuu) is my favourite boys-love manga to date. The story revolves around the relationship between Tomoharu Ueda, a policeman and Aki Gotouda, a yakuza member. It's got adorable and likeable characters, brilliant art, an interesting storyline and enough cuteness to make any fujoshi squeal.

Story: 7/10
The story centres around the romance between a policeman and a member of the yakuza; two groups who would be typically see each other as enemies. Despite this, the two men begin their relationship as they learn more about each other and the lives of their new lover. The story's points of tension and adversity are always read more

Manga: Tight-rope
Yakuza/gang related BL. You'll definitely love the humor!

Manga: Namaiki na Ryouken no Shitsukekata
Both involve a policeman and yakuza getting involved with each other. However HY is a comedy not a drama like Namaiki, also the roles of uke and seme are switched. Both if you're looking for a yaoi with the whole yakuza story then both of these have that!

Manga: Lucky Number 13
Both mangas are BL and comedies. To be honest even if you're not a fan of BL, their still great reads because they are both hilarious. Light hearted comedies that make you feel happy. Both are about couples who just really don't match because of who they are (height wise/attractiveness in LN13 and jobwise in HY), but they end up making the most adorable loving couples.

Manga: Love Stage!!
the plot isn't simliar, besides the fact they're both full of funny moments and the couple is very sweet and cute. also they're not too much hardcore yaoi, so maybe if you're not into the genre you still can enjoy both mangas

Manga: Ikoku Irokoi Romantan
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: Ameiro Paradox
They have the same addicting comedy factor and, easy-to-read air!
