The things you find when trying to read a mangaka's other works. Tatsuya Shihira, the author of the mystery manga "13 Club" wrote this oneshot, so I decided to give it a try after enjoying 13 Club. It was not at all what I was expecting. It's actually a hentai.
It's also short, only 8 pages long. Despite being a short hentai, it has some charm. The story is rather simple. A rich guy must choose between his true love (who happens to be his maid) or the marriage partner arranged for him. In that regard, it's not anything new to hentai, and if put in the hands of another mangaka it would have come out rather smutty. Luckily, Tatsuya wrote this.
The characters are what save this for me. While the main character is nothing worth mentioning, the two females both had moments of selflessness that, while unrealistic, made them much more endearing than most hentai heroines. The two females and the art are why I gave this a 6.
The artwork is really good, especially for a hentai. Granted, it is in full color. This gives it an unfair advantage over manga that aren't, so I only gave the art a 7.
Despite being a hentai, this has a certain charm to it, and manages to avoid being a smutty and lewd hentai. Still, at the end of the day it is a hentai, and, aside from the decent female characters and good art, it really only serves one purpose. If that purpose isn't what brought you here, then go ahead and skip this. read more
