What can I give a heads up about the story.. Hm.. all were pretty brief and to the point, which is smex.. Hot, shota smex.
I can't say they were much.. and if you are looking for the long foreplay type deal, than this is not for you. As I said it was pretty brief and to the point, it had a few nips and licks for foreplay but not much. All seemed more consentraited to claim their little shota.
One tells the story of a fashion designer working for this teen model. One day he sees something he shouldn't and is dragged into the
bathroom by said model. And of course you can figure out what happens next. This tell was probably my second favorite out of the six stories. It had more of that fear, bondage and of course comforting romance about it. And I am not one for romance so no one insult my taste.
The second was about a musician loving this boy that works in the shop that his band plays at. A misunderstanding and some resolve later and both main characters are at an apartment.. and you can figure out what happens there. I notice in this was alot quicker than the other stories. I blinked and it was already finished. Also we had a reacuring character it would seem.
The third I read was about a soccer player who falls for this dude who works in the flower shop. He helps with the game and after the celebration you can figure out what happens next. Though unlike the pervious two.. he doesn't go all the way it would seem.. taking the care of his little lover first before going head long into the romance. This was probably my fourth favorite in the series.
The next was about school boys. This one boy can't seem to find a girl and mistakes a new student for a girl. After a few misunderstandings and an ingury later you can guess what happens. This was my third favorite in the series.. It was a little longer and didn't move by too fast like the others did. It took some time to give a more reasonable explination at their romance. And I must say it worked. 'chuckles' Oddly enough the uke reminded me of Ciel from Kuroshitsuji, because of his attitude.
My least favorite in the set was this one.. A rich man finds a boy that is being ganged up on him and saves him. They live together for sometime and the younger convincing the other to have smex with him anytime he wants it. Where as all the others seemed breif or interesting this one seemed a bit more dull.. and slow. I didn't like this one all that much.. and that is all I have to say.
The last was my top favorite.. A mysterious man that has taken in young Leny who is a rare species of fruit bat. But what Leny soons finds out that his beloved care taker is a famous animal trainer which he stumbles upon his secret stash one night. Of course he runs and when the animal trainer catches him.. 'smirks' You can guess that Leny needs to be trained. The one thing that screamed threw my mind at reading this for the first time was " This seems what Sebastian would do to Ciel." and I must say if you love the pair you can get ideas for them by reading this. It was a right pace, and it was a bit more hard core than the others, combined with some slight romance.. not much but slight. Oh yes, my top in this collection indeed.
Compared to Yana's Kuroshitsuji, the art was good but Kuroshitsuji's is better. There were some flaws with the characters art and some background bits.. and the smex had a couple as well. Minor but noticable if you are looking for them. It was still very good though.
Though it was short.. I thought the characters were pretty good. Though all looked somewhat similar to one another. You even had some that had reaccured in two stories. We even had some that reminded you of either Ciel or Sebastian on occastion. Yes they were very good.. though they could have used some more development.
My enjoyment of this is pretty high and yet had some lows to it. It would have reached a ten if I had enjoyed two of six series more, but I could not so it deserves a good nine in my opinion.
Overall, if you are a shota fan and love to read more of Yana's work.. I strongly suggest this six chapter set. A couple of good stories, and some details into Yana's past workings before Kuroshitsuji. Also you can see how much she has improved after this. It also was a fantastic read and would settle any certain "need-to-read-some-hot-smex".
My overall rating for this is a eight. I would give it an eight point five but as you can see myanimelist is not like anime-planet so you can't use points, just single numbers.
