Blockheads Kasukabe and Misato are always quarreling over everything. But one day, Kasukabe finds himself helping Misato to escape from a bunch of fangirls. Alone in the classroom. Kasukabe starts taunting and teasing his arch enemy. But somehow, things start taking a turn towards a completely unexpected direction…
The storyline is cliché for the whole sworn enemies become eventual lovers, but it wasn’t that noticeable when I was reading it. I really enjoyed reading each chapter because it was pretty unpredictable about what would happen even on the next page in certain scenes. I would definitely read another manga with a similar storyline or even better: a continuation of this manga series but that’s probably not going to happen unfortunately.
I adored the art in this manga so much. I think there’s some style of art which is commonly used in Shounen ai and yaoi manga because I keep seeing the
similar style every now and again (and I’m definitely not complaining). There weren’t many scenes which focused on the scenery, so I was able to pay attention to the characters more than other manga that I’ve read.
The two main characters Kasukabe and Misato were both enjoyable to meet while reading the manga. They’re both known for being good looking and both are intelligent in a specific field of interest. After they hook up, both Kasukabe and Misato slowly start to change but nothing that makes the change obvious to their friends.
I loved reading this manga so much and it even made me laugh until I cried which isn’t uncommon for me but the point is that there are a lot of funny scenes. I’m definitely going to reread it again, because I enjoyed reading it so much.
This is definitely is one of my favourite shounen ai manga. When you take into consideration the storyline, art, characters and the enjoyment of reading Junketsu Drop, I would be very concerned if it wasn’t a favourite shounen ai manga of mine.
Junketsu Drop is an adorable and sweet yaoi, even if it is classified as a shounen ai on 'MyAnimeList' when you go to read in online it states yaoi... or maybe that's the version i read 0.0 either way it doesn't matter, it's a manga about two boys OK!
Hu-humm, anyway, i can say without 'much' embarrassment that i love yaoi and i read/watch quite a lot (.^_^.) and this manga was the first in a long time to make me so excited 0.0 NOT LIKE THAT (mostly....) it was just so cute and sweet and i felt the boys were so realistic and reacted
(mostly) like real people would.
Story was actually quite refreshing and honest, yet not like mind-boggoing unique. It is set in a school (WHODA THOUGHT >.> yet we love it .^_^.) with two seemingly opposite boys evolving there rival-ness into a unexpected and passionate fling that neither saw coming. 8/10
Art at first i was a bit "0.0 noses... noses everywhere." (you'll see what i mean.. they're a bit umm eye catching) but after a few pages i liked that for once characters look real (proportional. guys have big noses usually) and the art reminds me of some other manga i loved, though i can't think what, so this art is familiar with a new twist that makes it stand out and memorable. By the second chapter i decided this manga had the cutest blushing faces i'd seen and had to reread the beginning before continuing -_-' a bit lame but i donno what it was! Also i've never done that before so you know you found something special when it makes you do that :) 8/10
Character's were at first very generic, sport boy who is arrogant, baby faced, cute drama boy who is envious and childish all the time; but in fact the mains are very layered and you see personalities and reactions out of them you don't expect but love. It made them more relatable and level cause you usually can't see what a whole person is like until you peal back some layers (don't why i have a craving to watch the first Shrek now... onions spring to mind as well...) anyway.. 9/10
Enjoyment was much higher then i expected and the chapters were so fun i would happily read over and over again for some good old escapism. Manga's like this are like old friends you visit when your down and they lift your whole mood :) so 9/10
Which is a happy 9/10 overall :) Hope people will go and read this manga now and that i could be of help to convince you too :) Thanks for reading, from Ro-ro33 xxxx
p.s. i also want to apologise for any of my weirdness :P
I've read a lot of yaoi mangas, so it became harder to come across something that I will find really cute or really hot. This manga had these two aspects.
This is the dejà vu ''ennemies fall in love'' type of story. I have to admit the way they start ''going out'' (if you can call it that) is pretty unrealistic and had probably been done before, but they way they discover each other's feelings was really well paced, realistic and cute.
The art is beautiful. It makes you smile at how cute it is and, gotta admit it, the smexy scenes are really hot while not
showing anything too graphic.
The personnality of each character is very well developed for a one volume manga. The way they act and think seems realistic and the characters are overall really nice. They might surprise you at times too!
Enjoyment: I enjoyed this manga from start to finish, it was just so cute, hot and heart warming at the same time. It expresses really well the feelings of discovering lust and sex for the first time and also how love can be unpredictable sometimes.
Overall: A really good real for any yaoi/shounen-ai fan. I feel like this book really stands out from what I read before - and I read a lot-, it is definitly one of my favourite yaoi mangas.
This isn't shounen-ai, its yaoi. It's not bad by any standards, just standard yaoi fare but I felt reading this wasted my time. The story is piss-poor, it's just the normal 'oh my god don't rape me' to 'why do I like this' to 'I love you too', you know, typical stuff. It was okay hot, not too cute or fluffy, basically it was average. The art is nice I guess. The only thing I found enjoyable in the manga was the whole seme/uke situation, but it wasn't explored, and half the time they were fucking, it was boring. (3 is a low score, but
it left a bad taste in my mouth. It's more like 5. Painfully average.)
