Warning: rants and spoilers... though is there really any plot to spoil?
I confess: I don't really read smut. But..
I have always wanted to at least attempt to read a yaoi manga properly, and I thought when I first saw this on anime-planet, "Might as well read this: it has pretty nice art."
I'm serious, like I will be perfectly honest with you, the lines are pretty clean and the blond guy on the cover I saw specifically saw on anime-planet (and not on myanimelist) was actually pretty good-looking so... why not read this?.. At least, that's what I thought prior to reading a few chapters.
is literally just two boys being horny and going at it. Then the rest of the pages are a brief introduction to the fact that one is a "geeky fudanshi" and the other is a "hot, bisexual hairstylist," along with them still just going at it. Then the next chapter has the "typical tsundere" and "perverted-but-hot teacher." That's basically it. Purely mindless porn. This was like watching Boku no Pico except with decent art and without the huge age problem. But still nonetheless pretty bad.
The characters were very unrealistic and two dimensional. They were even slightly annoying. Sure, I only read like three chapters of this manga, but I don't think any good love interest is suddenly going to insist on banging the main character (not to mention the "uke" characters being obedient) within 4 hours of their first meeting without even really getting to know them first. Then right after the banging is the "I love you" even though they still barely know each other after the intercourse. And they all just CAN'T wait to have sex every two pages, and because of that, I couldn't even read past the part where they have a foursome (Not to mention that two out of the four are brothers). The older men were treating their younger mates like they were sex toys almost. It was pretty annoying, in my opinion. And when they tried to be funny, it really wasn't, and it certainly wasn't romantic either. This manga is a huge "how to not romantic comedy."
I know that maybe the author wasn't even trying to put in a lot thought to the characters, since the goal was to provide gay sex, but they were so ridiculously uninteresting and poorly-thought of compared to, let's say the characters from "Love Stage" or even "Junjou Romantica" (both are much better examples of yaoi).
This manga just made me feel annoyed and even bored for the most part, as a person who doesn't read the genre usually. The characters were nothing new, and they all stuck to tropes. The only good thing I could get out of this manga was the best art, but other than that, I felt like I was choking on this manga.
As the sole purpose is to make satisfaction for the fujoshi/fudanshi readers, it does a decent job with that. Actually, take that back. It doesn't because you hardly get to see their dicks anyway even when they have sex in the first three chapters. (What the hell? If you're going to have to make mindless porn, we at least need penises flying in front of our faces. Don't be half-assed, mangaka-san. )
This manga really isn't for people looking for real plot or really anything beyond gay sex.
*sigh* Maybe I shouldn't have reviewed this since it's like expecting a hentai to have plot.
