I can't believe that this awesome manga doesn't have a review yet! Sadly, I'm not the best choice for something like that, but I'll try my best. ^^'
First things first: if you don't like yuri, smut yuri or BOTH, don't bother reading this manga, because it's clearly not for you. But then again, why don't you give it a chance? You may discover that yuri is actually not that bad? It's for you to decide.
Wow, this manga was fun. I really can't believe that it's from a manga-ka, that's famous for writing yaoi. It was a really good read, unlike some other titles of the
genre, where all there is to it is SEX, SEX, SEX and oh, did I mention the SEX. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for smut, but a decent story beforehand makes the smut all the more enjoyable. And this manga has that. It's not anything special, it's not original either, because I can easily think of Rosario to Vampire for example, where we also can observe "yokais" and a human, who accidentally got in their world... But still, this manga was very enjoyable. The relationship between Arare and Kiri was really sweet, they had their issues: but this time it was not the parents' dissaproval, but the fact, that if they consume their relationship, Arare will become a yokai, too. At moments, it was heartwhelming :3
And putting their romantic story aside, we get to see some really tasty smut here and there and not only between them two. But not for a moment did I felt awkward, like I do in other similar smut mangas. Not everyone was clinging on our Arare, not everyone wanted to "nail" her, like it has always been in other similar mangas.
Another thing I should note is the comedy. I literally laughed my ass off. The humour is at a top level and will surely bring a smile or two on your faces. The main reason for that is the comic-relief character Pero, who is just plain awesomness, and their teacher, who is funny even by only looking at. I mean, look at that neck!
The art is very well drawn, no complaints here. Even considering that the majority of the characters are yokai, the manga-ka managed to make them look really hot for the most part. The side characters are just hideous, but don't play a big role so no worries. Another thing that I think I should mention are the sex scenes - they are drawn beautifully, almost makes you guilty for watching the girls doing it: that's how pure it is. There are some pervy scenes too though, but again, they were drawn really nice.
The characters are easily likeable. Arare is just your ordinary girl, that likes boys, but discovers her true nature eventually. She acts a bit selfish at times, but in the end, her love proves that she's honest and didn't mean all the things she's done. She's also a great friend, which, you can make sure of by the end of 14 chapter. Kiri on the other hand is a cheerful neko, she'll also do everything for her friends when in trouble, as proved in many occasions. There is really nothing you can hate about her - she's just too perfect, she even has nekomimi :D She has her sensitive side though, but then again - that's what makes her so cute. And Pero... is Pero. lol She's really hillarious, whenever I see her, I'd laugh hard, that's the kind of character she is. Same goes with the teacher ^^
Did I enjoy it? God knows how much I did! It's really rare these days to find a smut yuri manga with a decent plot AND with such a great comedy in it. I strongly recommend it.
