My first review. Hopefully I'm helpful someone. Any tips on how I should improve would be greatly appreciated...
Child Epicurean is about children and sex. Wait - take out the "and." Yes, children sex, and shotacon in some chapters. I expected this manga to be explict, but actually have a good plot and reasonable - and adorable - characters. Oh, how my hopes were dashed within the first few pages of chapter one.
Story: Definitely not a good plot. Once two boy characters interact, sex blooms straight away. Like sex every page. Of course, there's nothing wrong with hot guy sex, but a fangirl can only take
so much of plotless pictures of naked men - or boys in this case. With much thought (probably thirty seconds of debating between a higher score or a lower one), I give the story a four.
Art: The art is what made me want to start reading Child Epicurean right away. I love bishounen, so I instantly got attracted to this. There was one major flaw in this mangaka's art, though... every character looked the same. Hell, slap on some glasses and a larger penis on the same character, and you have a whole new one. Nevertheless, the art was still good. Given, the art's a seven.
Character: Eh... I felt like I rated the character a lot higher than I should've. The manga never has any background story, no problems, nothing - nada. Like I said before, it was just plain sex. But what made me give character a five was because the main plot for each story was different.
Enjoyment: A six. I was harsh on the other elements (above), but every fangirl loves gay sex and whatnot.
Overall: Overall is a five. I can't say I'm too fond with this manga, but I definitely don't hate it. Not a must read, but I gurantee you that you will get something hot from this manga.
