We know you've all been waiting, and now Harada's works are finally available on Renta!
"YATA & MOMO" isn't your typical yaoi. For a start, Momo's a useless good-for-nothing who fails at everything he tries. He's also a hedonistic twink with no moral compass... He meets Yata under some of the worst circumstances imaginable, but Yata can't leave well enough alone and is quite taken by Momo, so takes him in. After many trails and tribulations, the two of them end up falling in love, but... Well, let's just say that the two of them are in a league of their own! It may be kind of a dark story, but it's also hilarious!
I think one of Harada's charms is that they make the characters seem real. Like, despite the fact that Momo is completely unable to hold down a job, he really tries hard for Yata's sake. Momo honestly does love Yata, and he tries to show it in his own Momo-way. I could easily see how Yata was the one good thing in Momo's otherwise grim life. I recommend reading this once, then reading it again knowing what lurks in Momo's mind! (Posted by Yao)

DEFIANT IN THE DESERT

I started reading this story expecting it to be a regular "forbidden" romance that we so often see - where the obstacles turn out not to be so serious and the main couple's love isn't actually all that forbidden. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there was a real conflict here and they both had good reasons to feel extremely guilty. Sarah grew up in the desert and had been engaged to a prince from a neighboring country. Her longtime playmate and friend, Suleiman, was her fiancé's bodyguard, confidant and family. The two were definitely not supposed to feel attracted to each other but still found themselves pulled in by a mysterious force. When Sarah goes away to live a completely "Western" life in England, Suleiman appears before her to bring her back to her duty and finalize the political marriage that stands in the way of their happiness. Sarah has a hard time giving up on the love she still feels for him, while Suleiman is torn apart by a sense of betrayal. There are no easy to choices to be made here and many things will happen to the two along the way. If you're feeling like reading something a little more serious and dark (complete with gorgeous art too!), I really recommend picking up this title! (Posted by Quin)

MY SADISTIC PET: DISCIPLINE ME IMPROPERLY

Like many spicy manga, when reading My Sadistic Pet, I often found myself asking the question "Why is this happening?". The main character, Yuri, comes into some money, and decides to spend it on a pet to keep her company. However, the pet shop she walks into is no ordinary pet shop. It's a pet shop that sells handsome guys. She then somehow gets roped into buying "Yuki", a sexy tsundere who's just been returned by his previous owner. At this point the plot was getting a little bizarre, even for my tastes. Fortunately, however, the brilliant artwork and super erotic sex scenes instantly made me forget any problems I had with the story. The main characters do it several times in the first volume alone, and they waste no time getting started. They literally get it on the minute Yuri brings Yuki home. Yuki is slightly on the forceful side, so if that's not your thing, then you may want to give this one a miss. However, if you like your spicy manga to be really spicy, then this is the one for you.

I'm quite fond of this artist's work. I like her art style, and her stories tend to be a little on the saucy side with a good amount of sex scenes. In this story, Yuiko, the heroine discovers the hero Mashiro lying in the street after just getting beaten up. She sees he's pretty hot, so takes him up to her apartment to take care of him, and in return he offers to "take care" of her. One of the things I like about this story is how much the two main characters have changed by the end. Yuiko starts out as an innocent country bumpkin who's never had a boyfriend before, but by the end she's the one asking Mashiro to have his way with her. Mashiro, on the other hand, starts out as this gigolo who just goes from girl to girl without committing to anyone, and basically sponging off of the women he sleeps with, but by the end he's in a proper relationship with Yuiko and is holding down a steady job. Also, it's a small point, but I like the effort that the artist goes to with the appearance of the main characters. For example, Yuiko's hairstyle changes several times throughout the manga. It's those kind of extra details that make you want to spend more time just looking at the artwork, and it adds a whole layer of enjoyment to reading manga. (Posted by Candi)
