Shoukichi is a stylist who struggles with being unpopular due to him being unfriendly and overly serious about everything. Fukusuke, a top stylist who is frivolous and sarcastic, starts working at Shoukichi's salon.‬‪ One night, Shoukichi lets Fukusuke stay over at his place because Fukusuke missed the last train. While Shoukichi is sleeping, Fukusuke climbs on top of him and pushes his dick in his face. Because of this perverted thing that Fukusuke does, Shoukichi begins to hate him more and more. However, as creepy things continue to happen to Shoukichi, his thoughts about Fukusuke begin to change...

Maybe he's really a prince...?

Since there's only one review here, I will give it a try and write another one to add to the discussion.

Let's start by saying: Color Recipe IS NOT a manga for everyone.

I personally believe that in the genres' section of this website it should include "horror" and "psychological", but that is just my opinion. As anyone who knows a bit about the author Harada's fame, simply saying it's a BL, or yaoi like it is classified here, is just too plain.

The story shows Shoukichi, a hairdresser that is really talented, but lacks the social skills necessary to go well in the industry. He then read more

I would like to start this review off by just simply saying that THIS IS NOT YOUR SOFT FLUFFY SWEET YAOI MANGA. Nah fam if what you're looking for is some of them wholesome yaoi love story and what not, then you shouldn't even be considering this one in the first place.

HOWEVER, for those of you yaoi fans that like some dark twisted plots along with a sprinkle of roughness (if you will lmao) in your mangas, like me ;) , then I would highly recommend this one.

To sum things up, this manga gives out MAJOR obsessive yandere stalker boyfriend vibes. If you're into read more

I will be frank and try not to give spoilers as best as I can but: This is not a story you should expect a happy ending from. This is not lighthearted and it's not romantic. Be prepared for lots of dark twists are turns. If you can't handle or are triggered by stories with sexual harassment, stalking or r*pe then you 100% should NOT be reading this.

That being said, if you're into that sort of plot this is a great read. This story made me so physically uncomfortable and left me feeling gross- but I just couldn't stop reading, lol. If you're not familiar read more

From an artistic perspective, this Manga is beautiful. Perhaps an homage to it's name, this manga starts off with several beautifully painted Full-Color pages. The art style continues to impress with clean lines and careful draftsmanship of a salon working environment.

The plot starts off fairly straightforward, but takes a darker turn midway through. I found the characters themselves to be rather unlikable. If you like manga with sweet characters and heart-tugging romances (like from Ichikawa Kei, Junko, Natsume Isaku, ect) then you probably won't like this manga.

However, if you have a darker taste and enjoy manga like Caste Heaven, then you will read more
