Matsuno, a straight-laced lawyer, wakes up to a male prostitute, Rin, in his bed after a night of heavy drinking! Rin is like a stray cat with no place to go, working in the city's night life to pick up clients and make a living. A few days later Matsuno finds Rin looking for another client, and on the spur of the moment, goes up to him and tells him "I'm not gay so I won't have with you but I can offer you a bed and food". A sweet and bitter love story filled with misunderstandings.
I really enjoyed this manga. I like yaoi that has some plot to it, not just all sex and that's it. Those scenes are nice in a yaoi, otherwise we wouldn't be reading them, but a good plot makes it more enjoyable. I thought After Morning Love has a good storyline. It's not a long manga, but it is still an enjoyable read.
The artwork is clean, enjoyable, and easy to read. The pages aren't cramped and there isn't too much wording. I enjoyed the characters, especially the "master" at the bar. The main characters were also
fun to read about.
I have read better yaoi, and I have read worse. I would recommend reading this if you're just looking for a nice read without much depth or drama. This is something to read if you want something more light-hearted. :) I'm looking forward to reading the sequel. :)
Story-10: Okay, I am a sucker for a good yaoi manga but this manga is really, really good! The story is unique, something I've never seen in any other yaoi manga before. The plot line is really good, the manga itself has a slight dark feeling to it but it's still such an emotional story. Despite the fact that only three chapters have been released, I am looking forward to seeing a lot more of this manga!
Art-9: The art style is great, I just love how the author draws the characters, this is exactly how I love seeing the uke and seme roles being
portrayed. I haven't seen any errors in this manga, the lines are clean, the colors on the cover are nicely done, I just love the artwork.
Character-10: The characters for this series are a little unexpected with their respective roles. The seme; Matsuno, is a serious lawyer who is straight, but over the course of the three chapters, he finds himself with growing feelings for Rin. But what really made me love this character is the fact that he isn't like most semes you see in yaoi pairings, Matsuno at first genuinely treats Rin as a living being despite Rin's hard past and doesn't judge him for his previous profession and the fact that he used to be a prostitute. And the uke, Rin, is a teenage boy who was kicked out of his home and thrown onto the streets by his Father once he was revealed to be gay, and used to live night to night, working by selling his body for his next meal and fears that by falling in love with Matsuno that he would jeopardize his friendship with the man and make Matsuno disgusted with him. The drama between these two characters is just beautiful, there were times when I really shed a tear because of these two.
Enjoyment-10: I have to give this section another ten, I enjoyed reading this manga over and over again, the art style, the characters, the plot, the drama, all of that combines to make such a beautiful story that will touch your heart, I know it touched mine and I am looking forward to seeing more chapters being released.
Overall-10: Overall, I have to give "After Morning Love" A ten the story is just beautiful as well as the artwork, I highly recommend this series if you're a yaoi fan or if you just want to read a touching love story. But if you don't like yaoi, then I wouldn't recommend this series. This series is really underrated but it's very good!
