Nanao Shirahane is notorious for being a male siren, able to lure in and 'slay' any man simply upon his will. And while these rumors hold no truth, Kuon Aikawa, a fellow student attending the same university, still can't help believing them and despising Nanao along with it. Warui Series characters, Nanao and Kuon, now star in their own love story!
Can they both survive this disastrous misunderstanding or will Kuon's hate and Nanao's unrequited love continue unresolved?
Note: Tankoubon release of chapter six have additional H-scenes. The tankoubon also includes 2 extra chapters.
This manga was really amazing. ♥ Moreover the uke - Ninao has the same, seducing, forcing personality like me.. ♥
For the story I give a 9, because I can't say that the story is like somekind of an super outstanding, but it has it's own super good sides. (:
For the art I give a 10!
The creator did a super good job on the art! The characters may seem a bit similar, but they still have some outstanding, charming points.
For the characters, definitely a 10!
I like the way Nanao is ''described''. He has a face that even men could fall for, plus his personality is
really unique. Because of that I found the manga really enjoyable.
Aikawa, had that kind of an cold look to whoever he talked to, that made him that kind of an hard-to-reach guy, but again, because of this, it was more enjoyable!
The enjoyment - 10!
Everything there was just perfect. Not too much of the yaoi scenes, like there sometimes are in other mangas. And even if the s** there was forced, it was enjoyable. In other mangas I find it disgusting, but here.. It was really different.
The way the relationship between the characters develop was also enjoyable. Since Aikawa from being cold to Nanao, he became a lot warmer, and we could also see that he has that kind of an jealous side inside of him.. :3
And Overall, I give a 10.
Like I said it many times, it was great, awesome, addicting! ♥
I really hope to read more mangas like this in the future. (:
This one cought my attention.
This is my first review on MAL so excuse the flaws and typing~!
I've first started reading a few of Mei-sensei's one-shots and then I went to the main pairing of the Warui series, Mikado and Towa. As time passed by, I've finished reading the second pairing of the Warui series, Shinonomi and Yukimura. After I finished both of those pairings, I encountered another pairing that are supposedly connected to the Warui series so I decided to give it a shot. Well, I loved it, a little bit too much. Now, let's begin with the review!
Okay, so let me begin with the summary of the manga:
Shirahane is notorious for being a male siren, able to lure in and 'slay' any man simply upon his will. And while these rumors hold no truth, Kuon Aikawa, a fellow student attending the same university, still can’t help believing them and despising Nanao along with it. Warui Series characters, Nanao and Kuon, now star in their own love story! Can they both survive this disastrous misunderstanding or will Kuon’s hate and Nanao’s unrequited love continue unresolved?
[ Story ] : ⋆⋆⋆⋆
The story is cliché and predictable, though it was a really fun point of view. It's not an extremely amazing story, but it's great and fun to read.
[ Art ] : ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
What can I say? I've always been a sucker for Mei-sensei's art because it always turns out beautifully. Actually, my first yaoi manga was actually one of Mei-sensei's work! Because I always judge by the art 'cause I can be picky at some points. The smut is amazingly drawn as well.
[ Character ] : ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
The characters are amazing, especially Nanao because of how Mei-sensei portrays him and such.
[ Enjoyment ] : ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Mujihi na Otoko were easily enjoyed and it gives you humor as well. As the story, art, and characters were easily appreciated.
[ Overall ] : ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Amazing! Kuon and Nanao are basically my favorite pairing in the whole Warui series. Everything was well adjusted and amazingly prepared. What more could I recommend to you? Just go on and read Mujihi na Otoko if you haven't 'cause you're missing something good!
Well, that was my review of Mujihi na Otoko! Thank you for reading.
I wanted to enjoy Mujihi na Otoko. I wanted to like Nanao Shirahane. I also wanted to support Nanao and Kuon's relationship. No, I expected to. But I couldn't bring myself to.
Mujihi na Otoko tells the story of Nanao, an attractive university student who can seduce any man, gay or straight. Yet one man doesn't look his way. Or he does, with distaste. This man, whose name is Kuon, is aware of the bad rumors surrounding Nanao and can't help but judge him. Naturally, Nanao falls for this very man, who also attends the same university and happens to be Nanao's brother's boyfriend's brother. That's
how it goes in BL franchises, pair up anyone you possibly can, everyone around is potentially gay. I found this premise interesting and expected an angsty ride that would break my heart and drive me insane but one I'd enjoy every second of nonetheless. The little moments Nanao and Kuon shared in some of the Warui Koto Shitai installments made me curious and excited when I picked up this title. Unfortunately, I only ever found myself frustrated with inconsistencies in characterization, unnaturally sudden turns and characters' actions and envious of readers who enjoyed it.
By the summary, one would think it's the protagonist who would be pining and have a tough time causing a change of heart in the unapproachable Kuon, and honestly, I looked forward to it. I also expected Nanao's development caused by his own feelings for Kuon, but nah! Sultriness is a part of him and the rumors about him aren't quite baseless either. I'm not sure if this can be categorized as a spoiler, but Nanao has no trouble wrapping Kuon around his finger and provoking him, enjoying Kuon's jealousy and anger in the process. The unapproachable Kuon is quickly swayed by the male siren after one night of intimacy, when he's said it before that Nanao is the type he hates the most and that he doesn't have a good impression of him. Nanao doesn't do anything to prove Kuon wrong (if anything, Nanao's words and deeds only confirm Kuon's assumptions), the only reason Kuon starts questioning the rumors being his friends commenting they've never seen Nanao approaching anyone first (which still doesn't speak about Nanao's behavior when approached). This is what gets Kuon interested to find out more about Nanao, other than the fact that Nanao is exceptionally pretty. However, I liked the chemistry and tension between the two main characters, especially the scene in which Nanao slams Kuon against the door, kisses him passionately and leaves him with a smirk.
There are several examples of inconsistencies in characterization. Here's one: Nanao approaches Kuon in order to confess to him, but starts musing about his past experiences instead while they sit together in silence. Kuon is the one who ends up trying to ask Nanao out while Nanao's making up excuses not to see him, and this makes me question what these characters really want. There's a scene I found even more ridiculous: the one in which Kuon catches Nanao with sperm on his face after going down on another man (horrible, right?), but almost completely disregards it, despite having shown signs of jealousy and possessiveness before. He's just angry at the son of a bitch who did it to Nanao, how dares he?! (What?) Meanwhile, Nanao plays it cool, "I just sucked off a guy, it's not a big deal." But Kuon pays no mind, like: "Screw that. Let's have sex."
Since I didn't know what to make out of either the story or characters, I just ended up enjoying looking at pretty art. Mei Sakuraga's skills are as exceptional as Nanao's beauty and Kuon is pretty handsome himself. Sakuraga's characters look mature and masculine, despite pretty faces. A lot of detail is put into the drawings and the sex scenes aren't an exception. They're quite graphic, the last one being especially long. Oh, and Nanao has a masochistic side and likes it rough, if you're into that stuff.
To sum it up, I liked the premise, but not the execution. I liked the chemistry, but not the relationship development. I loved the art, but not the characters. Basically, I disliked what's essential to enjoy a story, but this is just BL, so it shouldn't be taken seriously.
