Yumeji has a big problem, and no, it's not that he's gay (for now, anyway). Despite his good looks, excellent grades, and talent for sports, he's not getting any, and it has everything to do with the fact that he's impotent thanks to a traumatizing event back in middle school. Nothing seems to help, and since Viagra is apparently not a viable solution in Japan, he's practically lost all hope—until he meets underclassmen Seiji, who's violent, tactless, and says whatever is on his mind. Conveniently enough, he's also in love with Yumeji.
So what can you find in an average yaoi manga? Fetishes? Girly uke? Masculine uke? Aggressive seme? Shy seme? The deed? Impotency? Bishounens? Love?
If you asked me what has made me to love yaoi more, I would straightly answer Otona Keikenchi. The one who has got me in its sway. The culprit for this obsession.
Frankly speaking, Otona Keikenchi is one of the freshest manga that I have read in this genre regardless of the cliche plot. Not because I have it in my faves but on the grounds that it's peculiarly entertaining.
The story progress isn't slow nor fast paced. It simply starts off with Yumeji who is secretly an impotent with only the two of his best friends knowing it. He meets Seiji, an underclassman of his who has an attitude. With this, he begins to discover that Seiji is the cure of his impotency.
The timing of events just fits for a volume. Unlike some yaoi I've seen, the explicit scenes weren't exaggerated. Though it has certain effects added when it comes to those prospects. The cheesy parts weren't overdone, actually it has none. Like confessing how they love each other and the like. Nevertheless, the relationship between Yumeji and Seiji shows a distinctive tie.
I am a reader who is a sucker for great art. While Otona Keikenchi has stereotypical characters, Nekota Yonezou made them more realistic and cute by means of her unique art. Yes, I just said cute. Who doesn't find it cute anyway? It wasn't too mature nor too childish. Balanced should I say? No exaggerated sparkles and blushes. The chibis did a good job as well. The cuteness will make you go gaga all the time.
The characters each had a chance to grab the spotlight, even the supporting characters. Both really fits in a comical way. The progress was quite visible in the main character's part. Yumeji with his impotency cured and developing a body smell fetish and only attracted to Seiji's scent. On the other hand, Seiji has little of progress. He later shows more affection towards Yumeji but still has a suprematic attitude.To clear things up for other readers, this ain't a S&M manga.
Ahhh, the love for Otona Keikenchi made me write a short review of it. Since I've enjoyed the cuteness(since these types is my cup of tea) why not have try it for once?Leave your lust for the meantime yaoi fans.
*THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS AND LONG OPINIONS.*
I'm not entirely sure as to why I chose this manga to review instead of an actually good one.
Story - 4.
I wouldn't say that this manga is an entire cliche, but I would say that it is all over the place and disorganized. There's also unnecessary drama (yes, BL is filled to the brim with it, but this BL is filled with it and more). At one minute, Yumeji is talking to his bisexual posse (I wouldn't be surprised if they had matching jackets with huge un-ironic dongs on them). At another minute, Seiji is telling Yumeji that he loves him and proceeds to kissing him without Yumeji's consent (they've literally only met one time and it was because Seiji beat up Yumeji's very promiscuous friend for sleeping with his sister). The next day, Seiji gives Yumeji a BJ, calling him his boyfriend, even when Yumeji didn't approve/say yes.
Yes, a BJ. To a guy who wasn't willing and in the nurse's room on a bed. What's going on? I didn't ask for a one-shot.
This isn't even the worst part. What's worse is Maru (I think his name is, he's glasses guy) is in love with Yumeji's promiscuous friend, Mu. (What a variety of names, am I right?) Weren't we just talking about Yumeji, his not-really boyfriend, and how they have absolutely no chemistry with each other, yet still continue to get jealous over each other's friends and make each other scared? I believe I'm getting into more of the character category, so I'll continue there.
Some more (unnecessary/cliche/uninteresting) events go down like Yumeji telling Seiji not to talk to his ex-girlfriend because he's super jealous, Yumeji gets depressed and avoids Seiji for being mean to him once, Yumeji tries to force himself to love Seiji because Seiji is the only one who can give him boners, etc etc, boring, snore, goodnight.
TLDR; I want this Crazy Yaoi Train I didn't even pay for to stop. Like, right now. I'll jump off if I have to. Don't test me.
Art - 8.
The art is quite possibly the best thing about this manga. Everyone has nice hair, nice proportions, and cute chibi forms of themselves. The porn is even uncensored. What's not to love about that? Well, too bad the story/characters weren't as great as the art.
Characters - 4.
I think the only character I really liked was Yumeji. Let's start with him.
- Yumeji: The golden gir- I mean, dude. He's bisexual, like everyone else. He can't get his little friend up because of a traumatizing event (which was just a girl saying that he has no talent in bed, but what do you expect, he was a virgin). Everyone dreams of him having formal good looks and stoicism, when in truth, he's a small, cute kid in a tall, model-like man body. This somehow attracts Seiji at first glance.
- Seiji: The big douche. He's Yumeji's kouhai and that one dude on the playground with the most friends but no "best" friends. Why? He's ice on the surface, and ice inside too. Personally, I'd tap that -- but only if he closed his mouth for 50+ years. He seems to specialize in
- Maru: The biggest douche. In the beginning, Maru looks like a cool guy. He's smart, helpful (looking at you, Yumeji), and somewhat like that big brother everyone wants. This is all true -- except he's a huge elitist and abuser. How? Well, like I mentioned before, he loves Mu. He loves to call him "dirty" and a "slut" without having any regards whatsoever for Mu, who was actually raped as a kid. At some point, Mu asks Maru to have sex with him, because he loves him too. How does Muri react to this? Well, Maru calls his disgusting, skips foreplay and just sticks it to the man (literally), telling Mu to "scream like a virgin". Sounds like a decent guy, doesn't he?
- Mu: The super bisexual. Mu is actually a pretty okay dude. He isn't a clueless pushover like Yumeji, a tantrum-throwing baby like Seiji, or a 50 Shades of Grey-esque (but ten times worse) sadist like Maru. He likes sex and isn't ashamed of it. He's optimistic, cute, and tries to make the best of things. For Christ's sake, after Maru made his hole bleed, he didn't blame Maru. He says, "This is sex... with love, right?" and "I was... looking forward to it. But even if it hurts, I'll make up for it with love..." Mu doesn't belong in this shit manga. He belongs in a warm blanket, preferably with a cup of his favorite drink and a person who actually loves him and will treat him right.
Everyone else is either uninteresting, minor, or simply not worth mentioning at all.
Enjoyment - 2.
I cringed and questioned actions/sayings so many times. Why did the mangaka think, "Ah, yes, a manga about bisexual people doing bisexual things while being abusive, scary, unrealistic, unnatural, and devoid of empathy. This is good"? It's not good. It's not even okay or average. It's just abuse, manipulation, and shaming in the guise of "uguu shy sugoi 'but we're boys' senpai and short tsundere bad boi kouhai make sexi time 4ever x3".
Overall - 3.
If you like moderately okay yaoi, this is not the manga for you, I promise. Turn away now before it's too late.
If you like really bad yaoi that once read, everyone will question your morals and senses, this is the manga for you. Also, pray afterwards to clear your soul from sins. read more
hmm just reviewing, i think otona keikenchi is the best yaoi manga ever. i'm not saying high, the art is very good, and the story isn't mainstream. You know, girly uke, or seme is tall, is too mainstream. In Otona you can find uke with cool face and its my first time to read yaoi manga which seme has cute face and shorter than his uke. So i recommended you to read this manga.
Fluffy school story between a older and taller glamorous bishie uke senpai and his pushy pint sized seme love interest. You can probably already guess that the above pairing is not one of my favs. Despite all that I still pretty decent and I enjoyed the art.
But to be honest, Yumeji was so hot and adorable I spent most of my time reading it wishing a more traditional seme would come and claim his ... heart. lol
