Shin's spirits were soaring after winning the lottery and landing a contract with a famous firm in the same day—not bad for a normally luckless office worker. He quickly plummets back down to earth, however, upon discovering that he's been saddled with an immense amount of debt. There is, however, one way he can keep his creditors at bay: become "friends" with an enigmatic and alluring girl named Kanoko. The task sounds simple enough at first, but leaves him eating his own words as Kanoko's selfish demands start to take their toll on him both mentally and physically. Will Shin ever be able to pay his debt off, or will the lust, luxury, and mystery simply overwhelm him??

Velvet Kiss is arguably Harumi Chihiro's best work. By far, the marriage between plot and ecchi/hentai always is a good one to read and observe. Especially if done well. Between the constant sex scenes and themes rampant throughout this work, there is a tender love growing between the two main characters that can be observed as the chapters fly pass. This love, while not clear at first, begins to slowly reveal itself and is very satisfying to see, if not being one of the main reasons to read this.

Harumi Chihiro's art is aesthetically pleasing to the eye in more ways than one, and in read more

This is my first ever review

I don't consider this kind of manga as an H manga, rather I put them on the smut category.

Velvet kiss is an H-manga that focuses more on the story ( that's why I consider this as smut), like Virgin na Kankei, though this one is more of the dark theme and kinda gives off a mystery theme too.

Story - 9

This story is about your everyday salaryman who got tricked(?) to an enormous debt and got another way to pay it, by befriending with a certain cute, beautiful, pretty, moe (sorry she is just too beautiful) expressionless girl.

Work is a pain in the ass, isn't it?
Japan is a very workaholic society; I don't think I'd be exaggerating if I said they have one of the worst cases of overworked laborers in the world. Little vacation time, underpaid workers, and long hours, work in Japan literally "takes over ones life", more-so than any other nation in the world. Velvet Kiss shows this realistically. We see the characters juggle their love lives with work, which ultimately, is impossible in such a job-oriented society. I read in awe as Harumi Chihiro effortlessly told a story that flawlessly depicts this--a middle-class, average guy, through luck, encounters read more

Let me just say that Velvet Kiss is no ordinary story. You won't find many like this, but just in case you do find, please tell me.

Story - 8/10
Pretty unique romance story about a beautiful rich and spoiled girl and a typical hard-working man with a job to do and a boss to please. Oh it doesn't sound that unique yet? Just keep on reading anxiously, scroll slowly through the H-scenes, enjoy the beautiful art......until BAAM!, the writer strikes you in the face with romance so hard that you can't help but feel something deep for the characters (notice I said romance and not read more

Manga: Nozoki Ana
Although possessing quite different aesthetics, the premise of both series involve the establishment of a contract for the male protagonist to sexually "entertain" the female protagonist. It is intercourse in Velvet Kiss, and it is (initially) voyeurism/exhibitionism in Nozoki Ana.

Manga: /Blush-DC: Himi♥tsu
Mature titles that places rather negative associations with lust. Feelings of jealousy, despair, guilty, and insignificance are prevalently depicted through the characters.

Manga: Cross and Crime
The following mature manga feature similar themes such as blackmail and adultery.

Manga: Ojousama wa Nigedashita
Velvet Kiss and Ojou-sama wa Nigedashita are so similar they're almost identical (plot-wise).

Manga: Yoru wo Tomenaide
Beside from the obvious fact that both manga are drawn by chihiro harumi, they are stories of how a white collar office man falls in love with a woman that is jaded with life.

Velvet Kiss is a 4-volume long while Yoru wo Tomenaide is a one-shot though.

Manga: Itokoi Chidori
Very mature manga with plenty of sexual scenes.....Borderline Hentai. Although Velvet Kiss is longer and has a better story both are pretty erotic.(A lot Erotic)
