Miyoshi Yoshiko is working her way as a model by doing various modeling gigs for her agency. After one of those gigs causes her to lose her job as a model, she now faces a desperate situation of being broke and unemployed. Things start to look up when she gets offered another modeling job, but this time it's modeling for Chuujou Tarou, the lecherous sculptor who got her fired in the first place! How will Yoshiko handle working for a perverted employer who can't keep his hands off her–not because he's attracted to her, but because he likes her bone structure?!

The first thing that came to mind when I picked Venus ni Arazu to read was: 'only two volumes?'

To clarify myself, I had a deep dislike (hatred is too strong a word) for one-shots or volume long stories because I thought they got nowhere.

But I went 'what the Hell' and started reading it; I was surprised to actually find that there was an original, well thought out twist and (YES!!) suspense.
Who am I kidding?

*Lifts eyebrow*

It was a sad little tale about a girl with an in-the-mud self-esteem, who likes being doted on while being naked. Dude, I'm not even kidding when I say, read more

This manga is really cute. Im not sure if its finished or not but i've read up until chapter 4. Its really funny and the main guy is a really funny character. the camraderie between the two characters is really well written and the art is well drawn too esp the chibi characters:) The protagonist is pretty funny herself and even though she lacks confidence in herself at times she's still very solid. She doesn't weep every five minutes and she doesn't smile all the time either.

The development of the characters and their interactions with eachother are just so fun and the scanlator even read more

I hesitated to read this manga because the website I was on tagged it as "smut." There is some nudity and there is sexual tension but it is not overwhelming.

The main characters are an oblivious guy and a moderately insecure gal. I appreciate the fact that the female lead had reasonable thoughts and reactions to everything that happened or didn't happen between her and her love interest. And, to top it all off, the story is very, very amusing. I laughed the entire way through. The drawbacks to this story are it's brevity and it's pacing. I understand that you can read more

Venus ni Arazu Manga Review
By: Yuki Yoshihara
Dated: April 29 2020

The manga is about a girl named "Miyoshi" aspiring to be a known model in the entertainment industry. Though that is what she wishes for to happen, she only do sideline jobs at an art school, modeling for art students. There, she will get to know "Tarou", a teacher on that school, who's famous in his field. Captured by her beautiful body, she ended up being a model of him, while still pursuing her career.

I love how indifferent characters on this story are. While we always see characters whose lovable, cute, and shy, these two read more
