Okuno Ryouko and Saeki are quiet normal students. But only at the surface. At university, they both feel out of place; so, Okuno visits a S&M club after classes. Saeki happens to visit this club as well; rather than participating in the activities like Okuno, he is there to play music. When they both meet there, they seem somewhat attracted to each other. But will this attraction last, when they come to know about each other better? Will love be able to bloom?

"...well then"
Same words I had when I started, same words I muttered when I finished.

STORY: 7/10
This story was definitely on the darker side of things-- not in the grotesque, creepy or gut wrenching kind of way though. It's more of a makes you think, second guess yourself and check your emotions at the door kind of story. Despite not having a traditional A to B plot or anything, something made me want to keep reading til the end. Something with the way that the atmosphere that was set made it really compelling to see this manga til the end. I... still don't know what it read more

Firstly let me start off by saying this is a mature manga and it deals with mature topics , but that said, this is at heart a wonderful touching love story, that had even me captivated and I hate romance stories like poison.

The characters are truly well developed and believable , and their faults,weaknesses, strengths and good points are all on display.The art is excellent and the story second to none.

The "ecchiness /nudity fits with the story and is part of general flow , not a means to a read more

Characters in both of these titles achieve sexual gratification through the practice of BDSM activities. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
An integral focus in both series is the use of BDSM to develop the connection between the male lead and the female lead. In Nana to Kaoru, BDSM is associated with experimentation and curiosity. In Koibito Play, BDSM is treated as an avenue to showcase one's inner self. Expect mature themes.

The both are about a guy that get's into an unusual, and unexpected, relationship.
