Nana to Kaoru: Black Label series begins 8 months in the future of the parent version, with Nana and Kaoru in the summer of their final year of high school.

Nana is a normal teenage girl in her last year of high school getting ready for college admissions tests during her summer vacation, with the exception of one thing: She takes "breathers" with her childhood friend, Kaoru. An encounter with Tachibana, a worker she knows at an S&M shop, brings Nana further into the S&M world as she learns what it means to be master and slave.

20 chapter and counting; this manga deserves a solid review!

Being a hardcore fan of the Nana to Kaoru series, I was more than thrilled to hear about the sequel placed 8 months in the future during the summer break, Arashi aka Black Label. While I was happy to have a double dose of BDSM goodness, I had my suspicions - will it really be as good as its prequel?

It's BETTER. BDSM enthusiasts, prepare yourself for a joyous read. Arashi not only brings a whole new pairing with experience into the story, but brings on a professional level of 'the Art of the Rope' into the read more

The best, my favorite by far, in the realm of manga, are the two series put out by my favorite mangaka*: Nana to Kaoru and Nana to Kaoru Arashi by AMAZUME Ryuta.

* Mangaka are both writer and illustrator on single manga, something I see as great skill and effort on the part of the artist.

These are ecchi series, with ecchi think Rated-R in USA movie lingo, which standout far above all other titles in my mind: animanga, ecchi and even hentai, think X to XXX when seeing hentai.

These series center on S&M story-lines between SUGIMARU Kaoru and CHIGUSA Nana, teenage characters of the same grade, read more

A great side story to the ongoing (at this time) manga, "Nana to Kaoru". My first impression of this story was that it would probably evolve like the main manga arc, which is to say that there would be too much delay in the development of the relationship between Nana and Kaoru, and at first it appears that this is going to be the case so I was just prepared at that point to enjoy some comedy and then some. However, the manga quickly switches gears to focusing on Sarashina and Tachibana and their unorthodox relationship as the couple invite Nana and Kaoru out to read more
