What do I see? could this be a great BL manga?

Yes, you are not dreaming! This could very well be the start of an excellent series. Apparently, the author heard the prayers of millions of BL fans and chose to go out of their way to write an interesting story.

It focuses mainly on Satoru, a hatter, and Ryou as the latter came to Japan to die. It starts with their fateful meeting and goes down from there.
The storytelling is one of the best I read in a manga and it definitely makes me want to know more about the characters (and they happen to read more

This is a true gem, believe me.

The story and the way of showing same-sex relationships was definitely far from typical shounen-ai and is hard to find even in western books or films (that tend to avoid stereotypes and categorization more often). This story contradicts every comment about manga or anime, and especially the shounen-ai genre, lacking depth or meaning or creativeness.

The story is sweet and dramatic at the same time, and although it's rather short it makes you feel like you've known the characters your whole life - all the little details we learn in between, later appear to fit perfectly and really complement the read more

This is one of my favorite mangas because of the art and story.

Canis is about the encounter of two individuals from different worlds. One lives as a hat maker and struggles to maintain his store when the other just tries to survive. It's not new that thing of finding a collapsed person on street, but their reasons to do what they do are interesting.

The art makes story flows pretty well with funny moments and a comic look. Their relationship develops slowly and carefully as the character's personalities grow too. I like the fact that fashion industry is relationed to the story and tells some read more

This was such a sweet and poignant story and the two main characters are so incredibly adorable.

What I loved about it:

1. Nice sense of mystery surrounding Ryou's character at first.
2. Unique setting - hat maker shop - fashion industry.
3. Both men are masculine (no blushing maidens) and neither fall into a typical uke or seme role.
4. The artwork is unique and gorgeous.

This story is very similar to No Touching At All. It's a slice-of-life view of the development of a relationship without the straight vs gay angst. It's wonderful because both characters are (mostly) honest with read more
