I’m reading one story of this mangaka at a time, spreading the pleasure: even if I don’t fall totally in love with all her stories, I do enjoy them. The style is …I don’t know… bold? Rich? Not subtle at all? :) if not always flawless or very precise. And I do like looking at her characters :)
Rikara was a bit too trashy for me but was interesting to read anyway (see summary above).
Rougoku ni Saku Hana, story 2, was about a judge and a prisoner, and I liked it. There was one panel that struck me as awfully hot, and it wasn’t even about sex.
#3, Lingering Attachment (Miren) was way too melodramatic for me.
#4, Semi-double Bed de Kimi to is set in modern Japan. Two guys from school football team move into the same one-room apartment after graduating, which means courting disaster. Love vs everyday life epic battle begins. Lovely and amusing.
#5, Tag Out! is about a boy who plays baseball and accidentally breaks his principal’s window and their school main sponsor’s glasses with the same ball. He enters the sponsor’s company to work as a cleaner/servant to repay for glasses. Love and schmex ensue.
2 out of 5 get a star from me. read more
