Honestly the first time I read the first few pages of the manga, it didn't amuse me. I was thinking that it would end up in a cliché way anyway and guessing it'll be boring. But the second time I tried to go over it, I found myself engulfed by the simple yet heartwarming storyline.
If you're the type of a BL reader who seeks for 'you-know-what' scenes, this ain't your cup of tea. On second thought you might as well get up and read it!
Let me start up with the story:
Serizawa Hajime is a man, who works at a bookstore. One day while checking some books, encounters a tall,fierce-looking university student who goes by the name of Tsuda MacLeod Keito. Serizawa had a bad impression of Keito because of the incident but as Seri observes Keito more deeply whenever he goes to the bookstore, he finds out that this wolf in reality was like a gentle and innocent kitten. As days pass by they learn more about each other and became fond and comfortable with one another.
Art: Not too intense. It was really drawn well. The expressions and atmosphere were nicely delivered to the readers.
Character: The character development though was slow did not fail to amuse me. It did not bore the hell out of me. Everyone was likeable. They did their part really well. Keito's character inspite of his looks was like of a child's: Innocent, caring, doting and clingy. The childlike attitude might annoy you. So adorable that it was annoying. While Seri was more mature than Keito. He feared some men he had relationship with of his past but due to Keito's attitude, he tried opening his heart once more and let the feelings flow the way it has to be.
Enjoyment: Every chapter makes you want to read for more. It wasn't really that cheesy like those shoujo mangas but it makes you feel loved and special.
Overall: A great read. Café Latte Rhapsody's doesn't really have this one of a kind storyline, the characters may be your typical 'shy' type, but you might as well give it a try. You'll never know what's inside the cover right? read more
