The popular oneshot “Aphrodisiac Café” has now begun serialization as a series! This time the heroine is a regular customer at the Aphrodisiac Café, Megu. Everyday she takes the time to put on makeup, but the reason for that is… What kind of tea would be suitable for a troubled maiden?
Biyaku Cafe is a very subjective manga. If your after a manga with and amazing story and in depth and relatable characters, I'm afraid this one falls short. However this manga series is comprised of a number of individual short stories which are not always so trivial. In fact the stories within this series range from the absurdly ridiculous to the especially sad. I would not recommend this manga to many people, only perhaps, to the readers of the genre who are willing to appreciate the story for what it is, without analysing and criticising it's fault. This is a manga that isn't meant to
be taken seriously but rather enjoyed. But in the end it is what is and there is no need for excuses or explanations, the fact of the matter is you'll either like it or you won't, and thats entirely up to you.
There are different ways of loving someone. Though everyone is different from another, one thing is for sure, they treat their other one precious. It is great to see story which not only revolves around two person but also the people who surrounds them. Different set ups which made the story more interesting. The involvement of the two main characters are fast but it will make you feel that it is normal. It became natural and it has that scent of matureness in it.
I really love the male protagonist. He show how simpleminded a guy can be. He
fall for the girl real fast, he always do some indecent thing like it was the only way he know to show his love. But he also assure his girl always. He secure his relationship. He does everything just to make his girl happy. He only has his eyes set on his girl. I love that attitude of him which he knows what he really want and no one can stop him from wanting it. Likewise, the girl which supposedly a highschooler can cope up with the guy with easiness, it is too good to see. The other characters also express their feelings in a way only they can do.
The art is smooth but at the same time, it is rough. Have you ever saw an art which is roughly done but looking at it, it is too damn hot? The characters are really cool and the way it was made is close to perfect, that is for me. The expressions of the character is not to the point where you yourself want to be in the position but the way the characters reacts will make you stare at them for a second. It is mesmerizing.
This story is a norm. A normal everyday life in a cafe where people fall inlove with someone in a normal way. There's really no magic powdered in every scenario, no over to the top feelings that was made, just the normal feeling of falling in love with someone. It was fast but that in a way that it was not normal. Every read will give you a hint on how stupid, embarassing, satisfying, simple minded, immature love can be. Though there are mature scenes, the next chapter is always fun and exciting.
There's a happy ending for all of us. Somewhere out there, there is someone who will complete our life. The ending is too good to be true. Everyone ends up happy. Everyone ends up with a smiling face. Everyone gets what they desire. It's not the ending that measures up everything in the story. The ending is cliche, yes. But the overall journey to get there is something every story should have.
This manga is a collection of oneshots.
The first story is titled 'Marron Brandy Tea'. It's about a teenage girl who is often mistaken for a cute boy, which is the cause of her getting fired from her last job. While taking out her frustration , she accidently kicks a can at a shop window and breaks it. The shop owner hires her as a male waiter, but not before seducing her.
This is my fave of all the stories. I think it's really cute, but sexy at the same time.
The second and fourth story are about the girl introduced in the first story and her childhood
friend who she sees as a sort-of rival since he's naturally more beautiful than her. Therefore, she can't help but become frustrated when he's hired at the cafe.
The third is about the other waiter introduced in the first story and a girl who frequents the shop and can't help but observe him.
All in all, the stories are really cute as well as the art. It's a great read!
