A local bookstore of mine was closing up due to the hard economic times we're going through, but that didn't mean I'd pass up their huge clearance sale. So I came across this title in the mature manga section, and it apparently seems that someone before me got adventurous and opened the seal. Whoever, did it I wish I could thank them for doing it.

Sundome is very unique in terms of story, I don't think I've come across anything like it in all the manga that i've read so far. Basically you have the main character Aiba-kun who is pretty much an read more

So on the Richter scale of humanity, if 1 is the antithesis of emotion and 10 is bawling my fucking eyes out, this is probably a 9.9 because it's physically impossible to bawl your fucking eyes out. I've never read a graphic novel that made me so sad. Like, come *on*, industry. This is only porn.

That brings me to my first warning - Sundome is for all you deviants out there. If you can't deal with piss, snot, saliva, and post-climactic messes, then don't read because that makes up at least half of all the sexual content in this manga. The other 49% of it read more

Having mostly dark gritty (depressing!) manga in my collection i'd thought i'd branch out and try something different and saw Sundome in my local bookstore. It wrapped up so couldn't preview it, mature series...has to be up my street!!

After reading the first volume (just finished the 3rd) the first word that came into my mind was - PAINFUL. Not in the sense it was a bad read, but due to the feeling i felt for the main character Hideo. His relationship with Kurumi is so fascinating to read, and to see how the guy started off in volume to what kind of guy he read more

Sundome: The first manga to ever make me cry.

When I first came across this manga, I didn't expect much. Even though the tags included "psychological", the ecchi elements of the first few chapters made me believe that it would just be a run-of-the-mill, borderline hentai manga with a few unique twists.

Oh, how wrong I was.

Story: 8
The story of a young, nerdy loser hooking up with a cute girl is pretty standard in ecchi manga. It has been recycled time and time again without fail, and for many people, reading one is like reading all of them. However, Sundome is different. Rather than using sexuality as read more

Manga: Nazo no Kanojo X
I was amazed at how much the premise of these two mangas are alike. Both stories revolve around a guy who's pretty much under the complete control of a girl as far as sexual relationships go and their girl counterpart has no shame in exploiting it. Despite both being seinen, Sundome contain much more graphic, ecchi and smutty art than Mysterious Girlfriend.

Manga: Nozoki Ana
These two mature ecchi titles involve their protagonists, both male and female, in sexual situations other than intercourse between themselves. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Onanie Master Kurosawa
Both series place a heavy emphasis on masturbation and female domination (though in a more teasing manner). Surprisingly, there is depth in the plot of these two series.

Manga: Aku no Hana
Similarities include: odd relationships which has been manifested by desire; male protagonists who are submissive to the female protagonist; and narratives that carry dark tones and aesthetics.

Manga: Nana to Kaoru
Both stories feature a pair of highschool students who are brought into a strange relationship because of their fetishes. Although there's a lot of kinky stuff going on, neither go "all the way." Expect a lot of teasing and sexual frustration. 
reportRecommended by Yuunagi
Manga: Hen Koi!
Both of these seinen serialisations feature the sexual encounters of the male lead and the female lead. Do note however that Sundome is more plot heavy and the sexual encounters serve to drive character development.
