As someone who has never been fond of clubs, Emi Asahina just wants to go home as she waits for a friend in the hotspot of Tokyo's nightlife. That is, until a beautiful DJ by the name of Keiko "Kei" Yoinoma comes to her rescue. Invited to her place for a drink, Emi begins to see a different side of the very same music that she couldn't stand just moments ago—and is surprised to find that she may have been given a new perspective on more than just club music, as she wakes up the next morning to see Kei beside her. Will Emi take this opportunity to launch herself in an exciting new direction, or will her indecisiveness get the better of her?

A lighthearted romance formed from understanding the spirit of music, After Hours follows Emi and Kei as they try to figure out what they mean to each other.

After Hours was a decent yuri story, although I thought the writing was immature (i.e., poorly architected and constructed), at least in regard to the romantic pieces. I liked the club/nightlife theme and the level of detail afforded to it by the author (although I'm unable to verify the accuracy, not being familiar with this topic myself). The art was fine, but nothing exceptional. While I doubt this will be a memorable story for most, I think it's worth a read if you have an interest in the genre.

The story revolves entirely around the activities of the two main characters, Emi and Kei. The personalities read more

Read this if you are looking for: A tender yuri story in Tokyo’s nightlife scene with just enough drama.

Recommendation: Pick it up!

“After Hours” follows unemployed Emi who is whisked into the world of nightclubs and raves by new acquaintance and DJ Kei. The two women bond quickly as Emi joins Kei’s group of friends and helps put on events, even as Emi struggles to deal with both her past and future. Kei and Emi are a joy to watch, as Nishio Yuhta’s character art greatly enhances comedy and drama alike, and detailed panels and wardrobes bring to life the dazzling world that has so enthralled read more

I'm not typically the kind of person who reads romance novels. I find them very cliched and formulaic.

Which is exactly what After Hours is.

The thing that sold it to me is the chemistry between the characters, I found them very enjoyable and they felt human. At least to me.

The rest is okay, the plot is formulaic girl meets girl they fall head over heals for silly reasons, contrivance happens and they nearly break up but blondy's conviction results in her patching things up with her girlfriend and everyone doesn't live happily ever after.

I think more than the characters, the thing that stuck with me with read more

Right of the bat, the one thing I like is how straightforward the manga is. You can expect things to happen from the first chapter. So if you are not a fan of dragging a story 50 chapters until you get what you came for, this is the manga for you.

But it also comes with a disappointment, in my opinion. It certainly hypes up with the beginning, but it slowly starts turning into a bit of a drag. Because it lures you in with such a strong intro (speaking of the first chapter), you sort of start dashing through pages, expecting the same strength read more
