Boku no ano ko is a sweet boys-love manga where everything is super cute and fluffy! But don’t let that fool you. There is much deeper story behind it, about accepting your own feelings and not letting the past affect your feelings in a bad way.
Story – 9/10
Story is pretty simple. Amakura Chigusa has been engaged to Aki-chan since childhood but has never met his fiancé who surprisingly turns out to be a guy. So what happens when the parents decide that their two children will be soul mates but never actually introduce them to one another. The story is lovely and I had
fun reading the 2,5 chapters. It is such a wonderful storyline. Even though it was short, each page had some emotion on it that kept me reading! Short but refreshing at the same time. I can only recommend this manga to shonen ai fans because there were not many intense H-scenes and smut.
Art – 9/10
I liked the art, it had its own style, was very well drawn and consistently good, and the characters were pretty hot. Aki is gorgeous and I adored the pictures of him as a child. All in all, this is good yaoi manga with great illustrations.
Character – 9/10
There are two main characters that both provide two different personalities. Both are very likeable and interesting in their own way. They even talk about their feelings and thoughts and for me that is quite remarkable. And the way Chigusa comes to accept his own feelings was just perfect.
Enjoyment – 9/10
I really enjoyed this manga although I was a little bit skeptic at first. Most important thing for me was that the story is told with great care and I was carefully following the emotional development of their relationship to the end. It was an intense but enjoyable ride.
Overall – 9/10
Overall I can say that everything in this manga is adorable. The art style, all characters and the storyline all get along so well. It felt kinda short but I really enjoyed reading it and intend to read it again some day.
