If this cover isn't indicator enough for how raunchy this story gets, well, this title pretty much sums up what you'll be signing up for, and that is a bunch of fuc-- I mean, shagging (for a better euphemism).
Look, I'll cut right to the chase: this manga isn't some super deep, thought-provoking, literature masterpiece, and it's definitely not something that you'll want to show your English teacher or mom anytime soon. But you know what this manga unabashedly is? It's raUnchy. It's gritty. It's a lot of orgies. And abs. And sweat. But despite all this, don't be fooled, because this manga will get you
balling by the ends of its 8 chapters.
You see, this manga just hits different. While the premise at the beginning is almost laughably silly that seems like just an excuse for a whole lot of sex scenes, in the end, this manga was able to soccer punch you right in the feels. How? Well, it was the characters that brought this home-- they the ones that sold this manga to me. Both of the main characters, Rio and Akanishi, felt entirely fleshed-out to me in only 8 chapters. We get backstories, monologues, and interactions that seamlessly work together so that we thoroughly get to know who these characters are-- and I realize that this doesn't seem all that groundbreaking since most mangas (especially recent BL or yaois) frequently use these plot devices, but what I'm trying to say here is that Fuck Buddy was able to utilize these devices to their full advantage to deliver us a very, very satisfying story.
Not only do we get toe-curling moments that result in a very metaphorical sense of fAngiRL nOsEBleEdiNg, but we also get to see a wonderful depiction of the blurred lines between love and lust, as well as two broken characters find their way to each other. Did my heart just melt right there? Yes, yes it did. And yours will too.
So, if you're going to pick this up (which duh, you should) be prepared for both ends of the stick: a raunchy-as-fuck story that knows no bound, and a moving love story that will warm that little heart of yours right up.
