Noboru seems to have rotten luck at school when it comes to girls, because they all have eyes for only Yuuki – the resident Prince Charming. Tall, dark, rich and handsome Yuuki seems to be the exact opposite of the poor, short and not very manly, Noboru. Because Noboru is from a poor family, he had to work extra hard just to get into this prestigious Seihou Academy – which is mainly reserved for the rich and elites of the society. Before admittance, it was a dream of Noburo to hook up with one of the rich girls at Seihou Academy, but his plans seems to have gone awry, specially when all the girls seems to not pay him much attention and dotes on Yuuki the most. But for some reason, why does this drop-dead, gorgeous hunk, Yuuki, seem to want to get close to him???
From Forever More:
Summary vol.02: The truth is, I think that I might already be caught in his trap. As usual, Yuuki's attacks are fierce,...and he's sometimes kind, and it's just the matter of a countdown until we have our happy end...I think that, too. But. But, well. He really is a rich kid, and I'm just an ordinary guy. The worlds we live in are different. Incidents happen to make me realize that again. Yuuki... are you going to go so far as to take away my pride?!
Summary vol.03: Yuuki's a snob, but he's also earnest and passionate. He's been courting me, and I've slowly fallen for him. He's my boyfriend now. My brothers have gotten attached to him too, and he jokes that he wants to marry me and join my family. But Kazushi-sempai doesn't like the thought of Yuuki being happy. He told Yuuki's older brother, who's living in America, about our relationship. His brother came back to Japan and told the two of us to break things off. Now Yuuki's rebelled against him and ran away from home...?
* Contains a oneshot called Pleasure Point in vol. 1:
Kubota is the only child of a massage parlour and hopes to enter that profession later in life. Using that as an excuse, Kubota insists on practicing his perverted massage techniques on his classmate Haigara. But when the massages start to become effective, Haigara's not sure what to think. And what's this about the pressure point connected to the heart? (from p-s)
The series was great!!The plot was great, the art was great, and the characters were great!! i rate this OVER 9000!!!! It amounts up to the two mangas that were also master peices(Jounjo Romantica and Seika Itchi Hatsuoi[im a horrible speller]) but anyways this was excellent!! VERY EXTREMELY FUNNY i was laughing so hard i was crying. I reccomend this to everyone!
I really enjoyed reading this, even the filler (omake/special) parts! It was so funny, I could die!
The main character (Noboru) has adorable little chibi chibi twin brothers and two other younger brothers that has so much life, it made the story worth a read. All the bits and pieces shouldn't be ignored, because really, they're so naive and cute and innocent that they would make you laugh so hard.
The art/drawing too was amazing, it's really well done. The chibiness and cuteness of the twins was amongst the best part of the art. Anyone would just love to hug and cuddle them. The story itself has
a sort of clicheness and yet, with all the elements considered, the story was done great.
This is a yaoi, so expect a smut. But the story was very light, funny, romantic, funny, wonderful and did I say funny? Yeah, it's a very good read that readers would enjoy very much. It would lift up your bad mood by just reading this. So do give this one a try.
If you are into prince-and-pauper type romances, then this manga is for you. It's a story chock full of drama, stemming from the typical forbidden relationship between a lower-class individual and an heir-to-be of a rich family, coupled with some really sweet romance and a dash of comedy. Saa Koi ni Ochitamae is a good read if you're just getting into the Yaoi genre.
This manga is the standard fare for a "prince-and-pauper" story. What sets it apart from others is the characters. Unlike most BL protagonists, Noboru isn't annoyingly naive and clingy. He's not the type to immediately go head-over-heels for someone, nor will
he back down and stay silent when he's upset - making him a pretty awesome protagonist. The love interest, Naoya, is introduced as your typical arrogant rich kid. Meeting Noboru unveils his more compassionate, caring side, as the two find themselves hopelessly in love with each other. The story revolves around the trials and tribulations the two encounter as they deal with coming out, maintaining their relationship despite the scorn from family, and from a pesky individual who seeks to crush Naoya's reputation...
The art is pretty good, and very reminiscent of shoujo manga styles. Noboru's the typical doe-eyed uke, though his indignant, headstrong personality is a huge contrast to his innocent appearance. Naoya's got the handsome, rich-boy seme look - very fitting for his personality. Minor characters such as Noboru's younger brothers - who often serve as the comedic relief - are drawn very cutely.
The romantic scenes are also nicely drawn. A few minor issues with the proportions of the face here and there, but nothing too noticeable to detract your attention from the story. The mangaka does a good job at portraying the tenderness of the moment. Sex scenes aren't too explicit - for the most part, the naughty parts are faded out. Good if you're just getting into the BL genre.
SKnO is a cute and short read. There are dramatic moments all around, though they are quickly resolved as happy endings. You might find yourself laughing out loud at Noboru's siblings' antics, or wholeheartedly rooting for the main couple to resolve their misunderstandings (there's a lot of these moments). If you're in the mood for a fluffy, somewhat short romance, give SKO a try.
