Love this one, these men are so in denial that they want each other but what happens when they try to get intimate without any drinks to blame it on. Things get serious!
More salarymen, because sometimes it's nice to get away from jailbait. Youichi Nanase, the older brother of Kouichi from Ordinary Crush, has just found out his baby brother is gay, and isn't happy about it. He spills his sorrows to his friend and work colleague, Renji Tsutsumi, and then feels better after a night's drunken babbling. But apparently hearing people talk about homosexuality makes you gay, because Tsutsumi is now attracted to Youichi. He picks a remarkably bad time to make his first move, but the guys work it out. Repressed homosexuality as homophobia apparently runs in the Nanase family; it takes Youichi a while to work out his feelings for Tsutsumi, who is much less conflicted about his discovery. There's nothing that thoughtful about gay identity here -- both characters call it "immoral," it's just that Tsutsumi's response is, "So what?" -- but Tsutsumi is unusually careful for a seme in asking permission before making his moves.
So I like Fujiyama (by which I mean I like Honki Ja Nee Kara and Dear Green and its prequel and oh man can someone licence those in English please?). I'm also over ~high school~ romances and hey, salaryman bl is something I like so I thought this would probably be alright. After all there's no point bitching about stuff not getting translated if I don't actually buy anything...And that's exactly what it is. It's alright. I mean it's miraculous in that one of the characters actually bothers to ask for consent (this genre man, it's terrible that I have to write that as a positive, it should be automatic...) but it's not that grabbing. The main couple are kind of boring. Still the art is pretty decent, so props for that. Just expected something more interesting.
Yaoi manga, and a Did Not Finish for me, mostly because I was half way through when I found some torn pages with large sections of the page missing, and when I was filling out the Amazon returns form I realised I wasn't sufficiently interested in finishing it to request a replacement copy and wait a couple of weeks for it rather than just getting my money back. That I can no longer remember anything about the plot a couple of weeks later tells you how much impact it had on me, whether for good or bad. But I think this was a case of it simply not being a good match to my taste rather than it being a poor quality story -- I'd have been perfectly happy to finish it without the returns issue. I did like the artwork, I remember that much.
Unlike many yaoi stories, this one has the benefit of at least using the word GAY to describe having a sexual relationship with a person of the same gender, however that alone isn't enough to save this story. It is bad. The characters never really spark and the sex scenes are stilted. In all it is a disappointing read.
Sweet yaoi story, with good artwork, not much plot though ;)
I love this manga-ka. Her art is really great. The story line was sweet and well written. I'll be looking for more by Fujiyama asap.
I really liked this manga. The fact that Nanase and Tsutsumi, have both never been with a man before, made me like it even more. The jealousy was a bonus ;P
I enjoyed reading this volume. I love Hyouta Fujiyama stories.
