comedy ecchi


Kaoru is a 17-year-old virgin who has an S&M fetish. He has always dreamt about an SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana, who is looked upon as perfect and is always the target of boys' eyes. Their relationship has somewhat deteriorated through the years, due to them hanging out with different people and because Kaoru is not taking his education too seriously.

One day though, Kaoru's mother gives some of his S&M toys to Nana for safekeeping. Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on but accidentally locks herself in it and doesn't have the key!

Kaoru frees her of the one-piece, but then Nana realizes she may like Kaoru's hobby more than she thought. Subsequently, the two of them start engaging in so-called "breathers." These breathers are intended to relieve Nana of stress that originates from her attempts at keeping her grades and name perfect.

This is one of those manga that is so special, considering its genre, everyone is waiting an anime adaptation.
(EDIT: Anime is a disaster. Really. Do not watch it.)
Outstanding ecchi, no-nonsense flow of plot, and no otaku "desu" crap, make this an addictive read, with no over ratings whatsoever. My fellow MALers, I proudly present, somewhat underrated but exceptional, Nana to Kaoru.

~Story~ (10)

If your imagination was tickled by the synopsis, then you're on the right trace. It is as interesting as it sounds, as original, and even offers more - unlike the very common "plot per chapter" thingy we encounter, this manga offers a lot read more

Nana to Kaoru, oddly enough, is a look into proper, Real Life BDSM. It includes things you tend not to see, like the fact that it doesn't have to be about sex. Care and attention has been shown, not only for the idea of prep work, but the psychological aspects have been shown as well. There is no pain without wanting to go there, and limits are gradually pushed.

In short, this is a must read for anyone that has the wrong ideas about what BDSM is.

User Recommendations

Ecchi titles with a story! Who knew! Both of these love stories involve two main characters in their high school years with a twist. Nozoki Ana involves voyeurism while Nana to Kaoru involves BDSM. However, both have great character and nice stories. While both are ecchi with adult-content, in general, Nozoki Ana has far more mature content and themes while Nana to Kaoru will feel more simplistic.
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.
