Hachimitsu Darling (Manga) add
2 of 7 people found this review helpful
"Honey Darling" left me with a refreshing feeling. I was happy following along enjoying the story and smiling as the two awkward characters discovered their love for each other through heartwarming scenes.

Akira (part of Homerun Ken) has amazing art. I love her semes as they are mature men with facial hair (instead of bi-shounens). Also, all her characters are not unrealistic in appearance or structure and are very appealing and dreamy.

What I like most about the manga - besides the art - is the simplicity of the events. The story is not gripping or over the top; the characters go about their business each day read more

"I want to see your naked body" Hazumi announces to his classmate, Kakuno, after he fought off some school bullies for him. So, being the easy-going guy that Kakuno is, he complies and discovers that Hazumi seems to like his body, a lot. One thing after another and the two end up in one of "those" relationships.

I liked the romance pacing - if that's how one would describe it - as the scenes jump around slowly filling in moments and events. Really, the story is very basic: boy saves other boy from bullies on a whim and then they start having a sexual relationship. The read more

Neko ga Hako no Naka (Manga) add

This was a weird one. Sorry, but that's the best way I can describe this.

It's basically about a sixteen-year-old who falls for an eleven-year-old boy. Even Kazuo (the sixteen-year-old) knows it wrong, but he can't fight his feelings. Also, while this is happening, he is totally oblivious to his friend who is slowly closing in on him. And i mean 'literally' closing in. Touching him. Lending on him. Even the girls in his class started catching on, everyone except Kazuo, who is too caught up on his eleven-year-old friend to notice, until a stolen kiss that is.

Oh and somewhere in all this, there's a read more

Nyan Cafe e Youkoso! (Manga) add
1 of 4 people found this review helpful
If you like your moe with a little cute on the side, then this is for you.

Welcome to Nyan Cafe is a series of short arcs involving cat-boys who work at a cafe. And when i say "work", i mean they act more like hosts e.g. entertaining customers, getting attention, acting cute. Nothing terribly exciting happens. They play with toys, interact with each other and do what any neko would do: act cute.

The story revolves around a new member called Shiro. Shiro gets adopted by the owner, meets the other cats at the cafe, learns how to act for customers aaaand that's about it. read more

UPDATED JAN 2014: I updated my review; now that the manga is complete.

Where do we draw the line with this being boy love? Even though this is labelled as 'Shoujo' and 'Gender Bender' I would actually label this 'Shounen-Ai'.

Let’s go over the facts: Ayato is a genderless human; nether male or female. However, his family chose to raise him as a boy, so even though Ayato hasn't become a gender yet he is seen as a 'prince'. So when Ayato starts kissing another boy, my little boy-love flag starts waving.

Magnolia is a fantastic romance series based on fluff. Oh yes, this has lots of read more

Are you looking for a on-going series that has laugh-out-loud comedy, likable characters, school-themed drama and above all: hot art? Then look no further!

The plot seems simple enough: Fumi tells his best friend that he is gay. The best friend (aka Shunpei) doesn't handle it well and, in a very comical way, expresses his thoughts over the sudden news. Chapter one ends with Shunpei (the straight-as-an-arrow best friend) deciding that he likes Fumi and becomes jealous over the fact that Fumi is already dating someone else, aaaaaand so it begins!

Look, the story is nothing new and as typical as they come. So, in that read more

The plot scenario is very basic: student needs place to stay in Tokyo and ends up shaking up with this white-collar guy for free...but with a catch! He must do all the cooking, all the cleaning and sleep in the same bed as him...wait? what!

Yes the handsome Roku, who's a president of a business and high earning citizen, is afraid of the dark. Not a problem, as Iori is use to sleeping with his younger siblings all the time...but when Roku 'touches' him one night Iori must comes to terms with what their relationship really is.

If you've read any of Puku's works you will know read more

Awww I really enjoyed this manga. This is exactly the kind of manga that makes my heart flutter. After reading a lot of Yaoi this is a refreshing change. If you want a simple story on the pretenses of some mild boy love with interesting characters, this will more than suffice.

The plot could be called some-what boring. It involves high school boys in the baseball club. Most of the events take place either in the club room or on the club grounds. Nothing dramatically happens. They talk. They train. They play baseball. And while that's happening you get an insight into the characters thoughts read more

Koutetsu no Baby Leaf (Manga) add

This annoyed me. But not like you think. The way the romance unfolded annoyed me. Let me explain.

This is a fluffy romance between two high school boys, or so it seems. Guy Number One (now known as G1) witnesses Guy Number Two (aka G2) watering some plants at school, whist singing. From that moment on his realised he loves him and starts acting - as G2 worded it - like a 'Effeminate' towards him: making him bentos, calling him a bride, smothering him with affection.

Of course G2 being straight was repulsed by G1. The first chapters consist of G2 showing a less than impressed read more

Kuuchuu Teien (Manga) add
3 of 8 people found this review helpful
Ahhh Kuuchuu Teien. One of my favourite little mangas.

[ Story - 7 ]
The plot is cliche. I won't lie. The cover art can tell you exactly what this is about: There's a Prince. There's a boy slave. Add the two together and you get a 'Prince Saves Slave' plot. Even though this is overused it never gets old - well not with me anyway.

The main reason i love this manga so much is because it's not smut. I repeat: NO smut! trying to find a consensual relationship between a Prince and a Slave is rare. This, however, would be considered my perfect read more
