Masaki is a college student living at home with his single mother, Yoshiharu. Their relationship is more one of roommates rather than a mother and son. Masaki begins to notice marks on his mother neck at night when she comes that makes him think that she might not be working all the time like she says she is. She says that she is not involved with any one, but the marks seem to be increasing. After having a run in with his sex friend's boyfriend, he sees his mother together with someone that he thinks he recognizes.
Tatoeba Haha Ga is a rarity amongst Hentai, Romance manga since it has progressive storyline spanning several volumes. So let’s delve into the good and the bad of this den of immorality.
Here we have a single mother and her son living together... the spawn of so many cliché incest manga. Yet even with a title that literally means “Even If Mother is” this manga thankfully doesn’t drop to the lowest common denominator by relying on such clichés. Instead the story happens to follow the mother in question and her son’s separate lives, as it all slowly converges. The lust-driven relationships are all quite in-depth and
provide a fair bit of drama along with plentiful H-scenes. There really aren’t that many negative things to say about it, just that this is a Hentai manga so you can expect your fair share of problems with the story; such as the pacing and the character’s mindset.
The mindset of these characters tend to pivot between believable (Miharu’s lustful behaviour) to plain absurd (Yamane’s lustful behaviour). Although the characters themselves make the manga a rousing read, since there’s a lot of copulation and conflict amongst them and they all have interesting back-stories (something Tsuya-Tsuya doesn’t often do).
Well if you’re familiar with Tsuya-Tsuya’s works then you’d know what to expect from the artwork… “Nothing much…” The artwork in this manga is as plain as one can imagine and even during the sex scenes there’s not much of a change in style or detail except the panels taking up most of the page. Nonetheless everyone has their own opinion on artwork because ones taste will determine whether you’ll be fond of it or not. I’m obviously not.
In the end Tatoeba Haha Ga isn’t like most h-manga where aesthetic appeal takes priority over a good story. Sure it would be better if Tsuya-Tsuya could draw better but I’d take a sensational, sordid story over some average looking artwork any day. Over the span of 6 volumes the mangaka certainly did a good job in keeping the illicit affairs interesting, although there are instances when it gets somewhat repetitive but these instances are few and far in between. More mangaka should take this example of not conforming to the norm and try to do something that’s rarely done, because you could stumble upon something good.
[this is the first time doing some Hentai-Rated material, so i'm gonna use some proper wordings]
For Example, Mother are not as good as Tosh, Homunculus or asagi ryuu. but Tsuyatsuya really went out for the Netorare part which is the first time of me reading quadruple NTR on the same woman...
Enjoyment and overall :6
When to Read it : when you have nothing to read or getting sick of sweet vanilla and need a thrill
Tatoeba, haha ga is not sweet as Menkui, not have a good character design as Renai Sample, not overly mindbreak like Victim girls and not "sweet mature
woman" like Onee-san to Koishiyo.. but this one has its own charm...
For Example, Mother are... is about a single mom raising her own child, cannot forget the thrill of sex. so she decided to "going all out" with some youngster. One night, the son found out that The mother is "going all out" with youngster but he couldn't figure who is the man, so he ran away.. then it all begins...
from the side of story, This manga really went all out for one part; NTR!!! unlike many hentai series, this one has 6 books and most of them about NTR, in one story. for those who doesn't know what NTR is, the terms of NTR is committing adultery relationship with someone else other than your couple.. quick spoiler, i count 3-4 times the woman got NTR-ed with 3 different men. The story.. well Naughty maybe a proper word for this one, because all the time you will be interacting with sexual intercourse, minor background story provided in this Manga but it is sufficient.. the downside from the story is... well it's bad.... i admit it... even for an incest theme Manga. because there are no real connection between the character. its like, they were there just for sex and that's it! even though i slightly feel the connection with the mother and her son. it is different with Homunculus which always have real connection between the character... although both of them is fap-able
from the art, well its not Tosh , Homunculus and takto though which have superb art. Tsuyatsuya really have its own art which i suppose not quite qualified as Hentai art, because all of them is so bland and how Tsuyatsuya created the eye, somehow its like blank.. the good side of Tsuyatsuya is how he draw the "Orgasmic face".. although it is not as "grand" as Fue, it is still acceptable.
From the Character, like i say earlier, this manga lack of Character connection. although there are some wee "real connection" between the mom and the son.. other than that, the mom and the youngman, the mom and the other man , the son and his friend, the son and his older woman, is almost none... its like they were together just for sex, and even though that was the purpose, then it is very little i can feel the connection. the good side from character is, how the son treat his mother when she's at very low point on her life.. which is amuse me, a lot!
Enjoyment and overall, well it is fap-able.. eventhough with low quality art and unusual NTR storyline.. it is quite good actually, if you want to start the dark side of hentai's world. this one is quite good, rather than you start with Victim Girls.. or, you are same like me, sick of good Vanilla hentai manga and need some thrill, but not as "grand" as shindol.
