I'm always in love with Nojiko's art and waiting for something new. And finally, a new completed one is out. "Kurayami ni Strobe"

To be honest when acmedan first posted this, i thought it would be just oneshot because they said so. But after i read it, i thought it wasn't finished yet and then, the 2nd chapter was out.

Kurayami ni Strobe tells you about Arata and Shoutarou. Arata loves to take pictures of boys in his highschool and get the benefit by selling them to the girls. Since junior highschool his "lens" always landed on Shoutarou but he just stayed in the closet until read more

I fell in love with this Bl. The plot, the art and the characters are absolutely cute.
The story seems to be a cliché because of the childhood friend theme but it's a cliché well done. I was impressed by how it was realistic not like some BL which the subject of homosexuality is not developped.
I love the fact that Arata hides his feelings for Shoutaro because of the fear of what other people might think.He's not only protecting himself but also protecting Shoutaro.
I think the art is the main factor for the cuteness of the story, especially the faces: you can tell just read more

this was such a nice manga to read. nothing special, but it was very nice and enjoyable.

all of the characters were absolutely loveable. from the main couple, to the other 2 side characters. the romance worked and the light hearted comedy balanced it well. i honestly can't believe on how well they made this work with such little amount of chapters. it was (i think)originally a one shot which was already nice on its own which says a lot on how its going to be with 7 chapters.

i can't really comment on the mlm/gay struggles part and how well they portrayed it since im read more

saw that there werent many reviews for this so thought i might help people out!

the story is only 5 chps + 6 extras that are small 4-komas, side story of the other friends, and other developing relationship moments of sawa x arata. very easy quick read with each chp being 30-40 pages.

the art is what drew me in first ;) the hand-drawn art style is really natural and light, everyone has a different character design -no same face syndrome. the photography film unraveling with plot points, the contrast of light and dark -very nice metaphor!

story wise and character development -very wholesome! the author read more
