Since Ao was a kid, his neighbor Ryoumei has been attentive to him and acts like an older brother. They have known each other for a long time, and now that Ao is seventeen, despite his weak and puppyish looks, he is pretty strong, straightforward, popular with girls and...lewd. So, is it on a teenage whim that he starts lusting after Ryoumei? And what would Ryoumei do about the sudden change in Ao's behaviour towards him? This is a story about an insistent high school student trying to win a Shinto priest's love.
Since I'm so shocked that this wonderful yaoi doesn't have a review, I'll be the first to write one.
I've only read the 10 chapters which are the only ones out right now, but I can safely say that this is a GREAT yaoi.
Story: It ACTUALLY has a story!! And a good one too! Pretty rare for a yaoi. The story starts with Ao a 17 year old who wakes up to a really hot wet dream. The first one he's every had and it turns out that it's about the guy who's been looking out for him since he was a child, Ryoumei. Ao doesn't deny his dream, rather he is curious about it and decides to test if his lust towards Ryoumei is actually real.
Art: The art is beautiful and detailed. Believe me if the art wasn't good I wouldn't have looked twice at this yaoi.
Character: What I love about his yaoi it's that it's not your typical Seme knows what he wants but the Uke is too shy ordeal. Instead, the roles are turned around and it's the Seme who is confused but not totally denying his feeling for the Uke. The characters all have a strong personality and are fun.
Enjoyment: This was a real page turner. I couldn't read it in a day because of responsibilities, but I kept wondering what the next chapter would bring. Which like I said before, it's pretty rare for a yaoi to have an interesting story. Plus the characters are unique and refreshing and pretty funny.
Overall: I give this yaoi a 9/10 It's great story and any yaoi lover should give it a try. Although it DOES have few hot moments it doesn't mean that it isn't cute and worth to read. read more
Since Ao was a kid, his neighbor Ryoumei has been like a brother to him (because Ao didn't seem to have friends and he felt like being at home when he was at Ryoumeis place). Ao has felt that Ryoumei is like a God to him - cool, admirable and always there when he needs him. But now that Ao is seventeen, he is having a wet dream about he and Ryoumei. He realized quickly that Ryoumei isn't just the person he admires. He has become a person that Ao is in love with. Well, without any hesitation, Ao immediately tells Ryoumei that he wants to do perverted things together. Of course he is not intrested and tries to tell Ao that his feelings are just a whim. But because their past - Ryoumei doesn't hate the kid because his weird words (but he is is shocked anyway). He believes that things will settle down. In a matter of time. He doesn't know that Ao is very serious and stubborn when it comes to his lovelife with Ryomei.
Yume Musubi, Koi Musubi is very interesting manga because of the story which is rare in yaoi genre. I have read only couple yaoi mangas that has a plot but this is one of my favorites. Very enjoyable and I hope that rest of the chapters will be released soon. Really can't wait. ~
Positive: storyline is interesting and different, the art is beautiful, the story doesn't contain just sex scenes and pervy comments (well, I really don't mind if there are just sex ^__^, but I enjoy more if the story has a real plot).
Negative: Sometimes the plot is progressing VERY slowly and sometimes I was thinking that the manga is actually shounen ai, not yaoi. About the character: Well, I hate the fact that Ao is a typical character in a yaoi manga. He is beautiful/cute, adorable and has typical lifestyle (in the end it doesn't mather, but I usually uke's are just a pretty boys who are so cute that you just wanna touch and hold them). There is also something in Ryoumei that bothers me; he isn't like a priest - at all. The most annoying thing is that Ao is always acting like a 10 year old kid - even he's 17.read more
This is one of the better written stories I've come across! Every character is likable and the comedy isn't forced. The pace is steady, the development between the pairing is (at least, in my opinion) realistic. This can also be said with the relationships the other characters have with each other. The drama wasn't overly done as most yaoi tend to be, a fact that I very much appreciated. The age difference between the pairing was handled smoothly and responsibly. The only thing that bothered me was that it didn't specify the exact age of Royumei. At some parts it seems like the author might fall into a cliche and highly predictable pothole... but does not! The main characters are so much their own person and the author is able to portray what the other party is thinking and feeling all at the same time. I love, love, love this story. Highly recommend it. 10/10. read more
This is my favorite yaoi manga. It actually has a plot which is realistic. The characters (also minors) developed during the story. And the story doesn't only focused on their love story, there were also other mini short happenings which show what kind of person the characters are. This would also make a great novel.
