Office worker Sumika lives with her boyfriend of three years, Kaito, whom she met after she got sick in the karaoke bar he was working part-time at. Kaito is now an aspiring voice actor whose work comes in at sporadic times. Whenever they try to make plans to do something, Kaito always gets a job at the last minute and they have to cancel their plans. On top of that, he always comes home late whenever he's working. Sumika's frustrated, but can't bring herself to voice her frustrations to Kaito since she was the one who pushed him into voice acting. One night, Kaito comes home at a decent hour. She invites him to see the latest movie he's done voice acting for, but he suggests she go with her coworkers instead. Exhausted, he passes out right there in the kitchen. Sumika moves him to the bedroom and goes back to the kitchen. There, she finds a demo CD of one of his voice recordings. She figures it wouldn't hurt to listen to it. She puts it into a CD player, puts on some headphones, and is shocked by what she hears! She was told it was for a video game, but didn't expect it to be THIS kind of a video game! She finds herself aroused by his voice, but can't wake Kaito up to fulfill her urge, so she decides to get the job done herself. She's so enveloped in his voice and her pleasure that she doesn't notice Kaito standing behind her until he yanks the head phones from her head. What will he do next!? Read on and find out!

Sako is just your run-of-the-mill office worker. Eiji, on the other hand, is the office's hotshot salesman. One fateful afternoon in the file room, Sako peeks through the gaps in the bookshelf as she's putting files away, hoping to get a glimpse of him. But, he's disappeared! She hears footsteps beside her and turns to look. It's Eiji, and he's giving her a good lashing. Does some lowly, pathetic office worker think she's got a chance with someone as handsome and elite as him? Hah! As if! Sako apologizes, then grabs his face and starts squishing it! She tells him she couldn't give a crap about his looks - what she's really into is his suit! That's right, folks: Sako's got a major thing for suits - especially the ones that Eiji wears! After that, Eiji and Sako start hanging out. For the life of him, Eiji can't figure out why Sako's the only woman who's not interested in his looks. All the women in the office fawn over his face. Both hate to back down, so they decide to go to a hotel and prove their real intentions. The next morning, Sako awakes from her drunken stupor and realizes what they've done! She can't bring herself to talk to him, let alone look in his direction. Things suddenly take a spicy turn when they end up on the same company trip! Where will they go next!?

Anna is excited for her first assignment after finishing the flight attendant training. She made sure she got on the same flight as the hot pilot she met earlier and on top of that, because of her low grades and lack of experience, other flight attendants won't let her interact with the passengers. Instead, she's assigned to the "special section" and has to take care of the pilots. This should be a punishment, but she actually couldn't be happier... When the pilots ask her to bring them some coffee, however, it turns out that isn't the only thing they expect of her.

Iroha and Ippei work in the bakery that Iroha's family runs downtown. Iroha is always smiling and friendly to others. Ippei, on the other hand, hardly ever smiles and is even quite scary-looking. Despite that, he's actually a total sweetheart. Iroha should know. They first met when Ippei showed up for an interview with bangs so long they covered his eyes. At the end of the interview, Iroha informs Ippei that he should either tie up or cut off his hair. Ippei mumbles, "I don't like my eyes" and quietly leaves. Iroha was certain that that'd be the last she'd ever see of him... until he shows up the next day all cleaned up! It was then that she fell in love with him and knew he'd be a perfect fit for the bakery. Ippei's also always had feelings for Iroha, but her outwardly friendly attitude and permanent smile on her face makes it impossible to know what she's thinking or feeling, so he's never had the chance to confess his feelings. One day, Ippei's brother shows up at the bakery to check on him and reveals that Ippei still hasn't finished school because he has always struggled with getting close to others. Iroha feels a twinge of pain. She can relate. She'd never wanted to let anyone in to her world due to family issues. She works up the courage to share the secret she'd always kept and the reason for her distance from others with Ippei. How will Ippei react? Read on and have your heart warmed!

Although Sweet Cage includes two stories, the longer, two-chapter Only You Know is really what drew me in. Riko's been in a terrible accident.

Driven by her impulse to discover if they're from her past, she picks up a copy of her residence registry and heads over to the last registered address. Just as she's passing in front of a beautiful mansion, she hears a woman scolding a maid--just like in her flashbacks! That night, Touma, her boyfriend, offers to help her remember her past. Right after he leaves for work the next morning, Riko runs out to give him the wallet he's forgotten, but bumps right into the woman from the mansion! Who on earth could she be!?

This sweet anthology dervies its title from the first story in which a chef dreams of studying culinary arts in France. His next door neighbor, Maki, works in the same restaurant. When she begs him to flaunt his French skills, he says to her, "Je t'aime a croquer", which we later find out means "I love you so much I could eat you".

The best story from the anthology was, however, Do You Love Me? Chiko and her boyfriend Midori stopped talking after a huge fight at their high school graduation. Chiko wanted to go on a trip with him before they went off to different universities, but Midori opened his schedule to work the entire break. Worried about him, she shows up at his part-time job every day in different disguises, but she's running out of ideas. After consulting with her friend, she shows up in a panda costume! Unable to drink the tea she ordered, Midori serves her iced tea with a straw so she can drink it. She overhears a customer asking Midori if he's got a girlfriend, jumps up from her seat, but gets caught on the table, spilling her tea all over herself! Midori takes her to the staff break room to help her clean up and things quickly turn spicy!

Now, here's a story I think quite a few of us can relate to... Say, you have a big day ahead of you. Whether you want it or not, you'll get a bit nervous, right? And what if you have to get on an overnight bus to get to the place too? Sucks, doesn't it? Well, it's even worse for our heroine, because it's the very first time she's taking an overnight bus. But at least the guy next to her seems nice... or so she thought, because as soon as the lights go out, he starts kissing her. And the story doesn't end there, because even though the guy is gone by the time our heroine wakes up in the morning, she will run into the same stranger once again (okay, maybe not once).

This premise might not sound very romantic, but the story is actually very nice and slowly turns into an office romance. The heroine is super cute and actually relatable, and the art is just beautiful. And most of all, the facial expressions of the protagonist are just priceless! So, if pushy guys and unexpected turns of events are your thing, I would definitely recommend giving this story a try.

"NO WAY. THE INTERVIEWER IS THAT GUY FROM...!" College senior Mizuki Morita steps into an interview to find Reiji Kurata, the man she met on a dating site and slept with after she found her then boyfriend was cheating on her six months earlier. Reiji blows her off in the interview. Was it because she was in a suit or because of her new hairstyle? Or maybe it was because she went by an anime character's name, Rinka, on their date? Whatever the reason was, she is relieved he doesn't recognize her. She joins his company the following spring and is assigned to Reiji's division. The next morning, the elevator doors open to reveal... Reiji. She gets on. "No... we're all alone..." She feels a sense of dread in the pit of her stomach. He turns to her and casually asks her when she changed her name. "WHAT!!? He remembers!? Since when?" she thinks to herself. He stops the elevator and moves close to her. "I can tell it's you, even if you've changed a little... especially since I slept with you." He presses his lips against hers...!

Unlike the previous Sweet Love title by the same author, TEACH ME EVERYTHING NAUGHTY -STEAMY EMPLOYEE-TRAINING IN SESSION- features a college graduate meek in affairs of the heart, looking to get back at her ex-boyfriend but who ends up falling for her former one-night-stand and current boss. Will their love be mutual?

So, you get into a college in Tokyo and decide to move in with your cousin, since you used to be very close when you were kids and now she lives alone in the city. Nothing wrong with that, right? Well, the protagonist of this book is about get much more than she bargained for... which doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing, though.

Chika always thought that her cousin Kaoru was a girl, but it turns out she couldn't be more wrong. Pretty much as soon as she opens the door of her new apartment, it hits her that her cousin is a handsome young man... in a passionate embrace of another girl. The latter, naturally, storms out of the apartment, thinking that Chika is yet another one of Kaoru's girlfriends and you can't really blame her for that, as it turns out Kaoru is, in fact, quite the womanizer. And now, the half-naked Kaoru is going to show his cousin just how much he's changed over the years...

So, if you're in the mood for a spicy love story with a pushy, yet caring male protagonist, you surely won't be disappointed by this one!

I was drawn to this anthology after reading the first story, Sunshine After The Rain, starring 21-year-old heartbroken Hare and 37-year-old stern lawyer Koji (also on the cover). After losing her job, getting dumped by her ex Kento and kicked out of her apartment, Hare drowns her sorrows at the local bar. The next morning she wakes up to a ladle-whack to the head in an unfamiliar apartment. Koji, her new roommate, refreshes her memory over breakfast. He then gives her $300 and two options: take care of him and earn the money, or run back to Kento. She contemplates crashing at an internet café, but ends up surprising Koji with a home-cooked meal that night. Despite his tough exterior, Hare learns Koji is actually a big kid with an even bigger sweet tooth when he wolves down five homemade cream puffs in a row! Could he be her happily-ever-after?

I also loved the third story, What You Taught Me. Soichiro transfers to Yui's department after a rumored violent incident involving a female employee at HQ. Yui organizes his disaster of a welcome dinner. Feeling sorry, she invites him out for drinks. Soichiro is baffled. She didn't drink earlier, so why now? Yui reveals that she gets horny when she drinks. Three sheets to the wind later, they're between the sheets. Yui's feelings for Soichiro transform as the story and rumors unravel.

All five stories spotlight bereft protagonists swearing off relationships for good and clinging to preconceived notions about people and love. If you're in the mood for some heartwarming yet sweet love and fairly steamy sex, this one's for you.

Candi's comment

This is a delightfully naughty manga about, as you might have guessed from the subtitle, a woman who has sex with her fiancé 's brother. The brother in question steals the show, and manages to be both really creepy and really hot at the same time. He's kind of like a good Hollywood villain in that you like him because you hate him. Like many manga that involve women cheating on their partners, the main character in this story is constantly telling herself no, but getting turned on anyway, which can get a little irritating to be honest, but the sex scenes are really good, especially at the end of the first chapter where she's getting busy with the brother right in front of her sleeping fiancé .

This is an anthology featuring three different stories. The first one is the story featured on the cover, and the one that the anthology is named after. Much like the movie Snakes on a Plane, the title of this story tells you all you need to know about the plot. Just as you would expect with a manga called "Train Sex", there are a lot of explicit scenes, so steer clear if that bothers you. However, unlike a lot of manga, where the men almost force themselves on the female character, in this manga it's the other way around. The female characters are unabashedly pervy, and even fantasize about having sex with their crushes, which makes for a refreshing change. Also, as I've mentioned in previous reviews of Coco Satou's work, her characters are almost all unique, so, unlike many authors, you rarely find yourself reading a story where you feel like you've seen exactly the same character before.

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.

This is one of those series where the premise alone is enough to make you want to read it. Seishiro Abe, the male lead, is an exorcist with a rather unusual way of exorcising demons. Basically he gets the demon sexually aroused and then sucks it out of the possessed's body with his penis. Yup, you read that right. He uses his penis to suck up demons (The power of cock compels you!). If you're looking for an intricate plot or good character development, then this isn't the one for you. However, if you want to read a sex-demon filled story with magical demon-sucking penises (and why wouldn't you?), then look no further.

This is an anthology featuring three different stories. The first one, which is also the main story, is about a girl whose cat goes missing and comes back to her as a human. It's not that unusual as stories go (I can't believe I just said a cat turning into a human isn't unusual.), but there's a twist at the end that helps it stand out from the crowd. The second story is about a high-school couple who get back together after being apart for six months. The female character has to cope with the fact that her boyfriend has changed a lot and is now super popular with the other girls. The last story, which is pretty short is about a couple out on a date. All of the guys display "puppy-like" cute qualities, which is why the anthology is called Puppy Boys. However, it does seem odd to call it puppy boys seeing as the love interest in the first story is a cat boy. Like I said, the twist at the end of the first story was interesting, so I recommend you give it a read.

Like Top Gun? Like ultra-cheesy dialogue? If your answer to those questions is yes (and if you answered yes to the first one, then the second one is a given), you'll love this manga. The story revolves around Miruku, a new cook stationed at Air base "H", and her love affair with the two hunky, hotshot pilots, Dai and Nagu. The aforementioned pilots have scores of women chasing after them, but are unable to resist Miruku because of her "sexy voice". The series' strongest point is definitely its humor. It's very tongue-in-cheek. For example, there's one scene where Miruku is with Nagu in the back of a truck, and Nagu is talking to the driver about what it feels like to shoot down an enemy plane with a cannon, whilst simultaneously "shooting down" Miruku with his "cannon" (The whole cannon/penis joke comes up quite a lot). Also, $4 for about 70 pages might sound like a lot, but this manga is absolutely packed with text, so you're definitely getting your money's worth.

Throughout the series Miruku's constantly flip-flopping between the two of them, which can get a little annoying after a while, but it makes for a dramatic ending when she finally chooses one of them. You'll have to read all the way to the end if you want to find out who she ends up with.

I love how ridiculous the setup for this manga is. Basically, there was an explosion at a research lab several years before the start of the story, which caused a number of people to grow ears and tails. That's all. No superpowers. No viruses. Just ears and a tail. That has to be one of the most bizarre plot devices I've ever heard of. What on earth were they researching? Well, anyway, the story really has nothing to do with that, and the incident is only briefly mentioned at the start of the first chapter. The actual story is about various "beasts" (The people who've grown ears and tails) finding love at their respective workplaces. The art style is nice and clean. The artist doesn't try to cram a million things into each panel like some artists do, but it doesn't feel sparse. I would have preferred it if they focused on one couple per book, because it would have allowed for more plot development, but it was interesting to see the different "beasts". My favorite was the aptly named Mr Kumada. Kuma means bear in Japanese. I bet you can't guess what ears he ended up with...

So I'm gonna be honest with you, when I first saw the cover for this manga, I thought, "Hey, wow, we're finally getting some yuri on the site like some readers requested!", and then I read the first chapter and it turned out to be another spicy love manga (which isn't a bad thing!) with a great twist! The main character, Shizuka, is a little socially awkward and especially bad around men, but she ends up going to a party with her friend and meeting a girl who, of course, turns out to be a man named Ryou. He dresses like a woman because *spoilers*, and it turns into quite the cute and steamy relationship. I've yet to meet a man who can convincingly dress like a woman, but lately, beauty salons specifically for men are popping up in Japan, where they can go and get their eyelashes and nails done. It's such a trope in Japanese media, but I really hope I can actually meet a guy who can fool me by dressing up as a girl! And maybe he'll be my own beast in a skirt! *wink*

This is a really nice and entertaining series about an ordinary couple (Technically Ichika, the female lead, turns out to be not so average after all, but she's still pretty down to earth). It does kind of have an overarching story line, but it's not that important, and doesn't really come into the picture until the later volumes. The majority of the manga is a series of short stories featuring the same couple. I feel like a lot of people get put off this series because the cover looks almost shojo-like. It's hard to imagine those two characters on the getting down and dirty, but they do (and often!). The sex scenes are always really well drawn and feature no forcefulness. There's also a lot of humor and the supporting cast is really well fleshed out. In fact I would say that this is probably the series' strongest point. A lot of the manga on Renta! either don't have any supporting characters, or if they do, they're completely unmemorable, but this manga has a whole bunch of them. I think one of the best has to be Chikara. He's a lolicon, and therefore not a very likeable character, but there's a great running gag about him being in love with Ichika's dad, who he thinks is a teenage girl. As of the seventh volume he still hasn't found out:)

It's incredibly refreshing to have a dose of comedy on top of your spicy manga! This week's pick is one of my favorites! Through a series of misunderstandings and miscommunication, Haruka ends up almost being devoured (not literally, of course) by a very handsome foreigner named Mr. Leonhard. My favorite parts are delivered through his interpreter and butler, A.J., who also happens to be quite handsome (of course). The banter between Haruka, Mr. Leonhard, and A.J. really set the tone and make this a breath of fresh air compared to other series and their heavy doses of love and seriousness. I'm sure you can tell from the title what Mr. Leonhard's "dysfunction" is, haha. If this was a super serious manga, the premise would be really weird, but as a comedy, it completely works! The series is still going on (even in Japan) but it's actually based on a novel. One of these days, I'm going to get tired of waiting for the next chapter to come out and just go read the novel...

This is a nice little anthology containing three different stories. The second story is about a Japanese woman and an Englishman, and the third story is a super-short one about two students. Both of them are pretty decent, but the first story is the main and best one. It's about two members of a school science club. The guy, Shuu, is a sadistic genius who's constantly trying out his latest wacky inventions on Minato, the unfortunate female lead. There's plenty of humor and the art is clean and crisp, like all of Yuuki Hinase's work. There're also a lot of spicy scenes if you're into that sort of thing. To be honest I wasn't that keen on Shuu at first because he was a little too pushy, but he redeems himself later on in the story (especially in the last chapter). I also really liked the scene at the end which shows the happy couple xx years in the future.

I helped translate and edit this manga, so it's kind of not fair that I'm reviewing it, but I thought it'd be nice to have some deeper insight into how it was made along with the review. I have to admit, at the time I was getting kinda tired of these "business marriage" types of premises. However, the ones I read are usually short stories with little time for character development and growth, so it was nice having a full volume dedicated to showing how their relationship grows. I put a lot of time in this manga trying to get all the nuances of their relationship across in the translation, so I apologize if it didn't turn out that way! Ryouya starts off as a jerk, but I think the story really shines when Shion stands up for him and shows her strength of character. The Japanese title literally translates to something along the lines of "The Collar the Connects Us" but it didn't seem catchy enough to me, and that's when a certain song about ladies who are single by a certain queen of music popped into my head, so that's how the title was born. I really worked hard on this translation so I hope everyone enjoys it!

This manga is so sweet and funny. It's about a high-school girl (Mei) and a vampire (Aldi) that fall in love. Aldi is really arrogant, but has these little quirks that make him endearing, like his weakness to the breath of people who have been eating garlic. The art style probably isn't to everyone's taste, but I think it works well with the comical tone of the manga. Also, spicy lovers need not worry, it's not all comedy. There's a bunch of spicy scenes like the one in the picture. A couple of supernatural love rivals appear midway through (one for Aldi and one for Mei), and they really add to the comedy. I particularly like the male love rival, who, like Aldi, turns into a cute little animal. It's a great read, and I highly recommend it!

So I was curious about this manga because my co-worker had been checking and editing the English version, and she told me about how crazy this manga is. I mean, the hand-fetish heroine has a 3D-printed model of her boss's hand!! It's so hilarious and out there that I loved every bit of this manga I've read so far. Sure, it's a bit stalker-ish how she takes pictures of his hand from different angles and has a whole collection of them, and you kinda wonder how she was able to 3D print an accurate model of his hand, but her interactions with her boss are hilarious! Especially when he starts using his real hands on her. It's pretty crazy but extremely entertaining to read. Deep down, we're all a little crazy, aren't we? Or in the words of a certain cat of the cheshire variety, 'We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

The female leads in this manga are so strong. It's such a refreshing change. I love the art style, and think all the stories are great rom-coms. I particularly enjoyed the third story. The main character really wants to lose her virginity, and tries all sorts of tricks to get her boyfriend into bed, but he completely ignores all her attempts. Just when she starts thinking he might be cheating on her, she happens to see him to his part-time job. To her surprise she finds him working at a bar where the all-male staff are hitting on each other. 'Maybe it's not a girl on the side, but a boy.' she says to herself, with impeccable comic timing. In most manga, after a revelation like this, the main character would be super depressed and worried, but what does she do? She drags her boyfriend into her house, yells 'How dare you date me just to hide the fact that you're gay!!', and pushes him onto her bed. If you want to see whether or not she succeeds in losing her virginity, you'll have to read it to find out.

Did anyone have parents who watched those daytime hospital soap operas while growing up? Y'know, the ones with dark family secrets and stuff that go on and on forever. Well this manga is like that, except it doesn't go on forever and has a proper ending. Mitsumi's mom gets sick and has to stay in the hospital, so to help pay the bills, her mom's doctor offers to hire Mitsumi as a maid for his super fancy mansion. There, she meets his super hot playboy son who also happens to be a doctor. I didn't think I was into doctors, but the white coat look is much hotter than expected. I think I developed a thing for doctors after reading this manga... The dark family plot doesn't really develop until later, so keep reading on if you want to find out what happens!

There are a lot of things to like about this series. Firstly, the art is great. It manages to be cute, but clean at the same time. The two love interests are drawn really sexily, and the author does a good job of making the main the main character, Chiyuki, look attractive but dorky. There's also a lot of humor to be had, especially from Chiyuki, who is often freaking out about something cute her boss did. She's a super likeable character. I find her pretty relatable in that she's not one of the popular women at work, and she's pretty geeky. However, what I really like about her is that she never lets any of her problems get her down. Even when she's sad, she seems very cheerful compared to the characters in a lot of manga. For example, at the start of the story she overhears her coworkers making fun of her, but instead of launching into an inner monologue about how bad her life is, she just goes "Well, this is awkward.". In my opinion, there's nothing worse than a mopey heroine, and Chiyuki's cheerful attitude keeps the story upbeat (but still with plenty of feels). If you're looking for something light, entertaining and sexy, this manga is for you.

Good ol' college days... I miss the days of being able to sleep in and go to class whenever I felt like it... I guess that means I'm properly adulting...

It's a funny twist to the typical student-teacher relationships in love manga. I like how more assertive she is than most other heroines and goes after what she wants! There's another funny twist at the end that was really hard to translate... Japanese language and gags are so hard to put into English! I can totally see a twist like that happening in real life though (read to find out what it is!). It's nice for a quick read and may end too abruptly for some people, but if you need a quick jolt of spice to get through your day, check this one out!

At first these two really hate each other. However, after working with each other day in day out they gradually grow closer... Okay, so it isn't exactly the most original premise, but both the main characters are just so darn good together. On the one hand you have a short-tempered, busty, badass female judoka, and on the other hand you have a bad-mouthing, self-obsessed asshole, who is amazing at his job, but hopeless when it comes to love. Nao, the honest and tomboyish heroine is immediately likeable. However, Kyoya, the male lead, seems like a jerk at first, but really grows on you. He initially seems super cynical (and brutally honest), but as the story progresses you realize that a lot of what he says is just putting on a front, and that really he's super insecure, and is afraid to say how he actually feels.

The first chapter is about the two of them growing closer to each other at work and finally getting together, and the rest of the chapters are about them after they've started dating. My favorite chapter is the third one; it brings a love rival into the picture. Usually when a love rival appears the male lead will get jealous and say something like 'I won't let you take her!' or 'Stay away from my girl!' etc., but Kyoya, even though he's worried, keeps everything to himself and suffers in silence. He's just so awkward that it triggers my maternal instincts. This is a great read and I highly recommend it.

We don't really have the concept of hostess clubs in the West, do we? They're establishments where women serve up drinks and chat with their male customers. I've heard that people sometimes do business deals there or bring their underlings there for a night out. I have a few Japanese friends who used to work as hostesses and it's a quick way to make money if your clients like you. You get more money the more they like you, which can also involve hanging out with them outside of work as way of building a relationship with your clients. In the end though, it's still a business relationship, which means no getting attached. In the cover story, Yurika works as a hostess and gets off on the wrong foot with a new client. On her way home, she gets attacked by a stalker and her fussy client, Mr. Fujiki, happens to come to her rescue. She repays him with dates here and there, but eventually she falls for him. I just love forbidden romance (but not too forbidden if you know what I mean)!

This has to be one of the funniest and sweetest love manga I've read in a long while. It's an anthology featuring four different stories. I liked all of them, but I would have to say that the first one, which is the titular "A Clumsy Cinderella" was my favorite. The main character is a girl who's really self-conscious, gloomy and likes to keep to herself. To make matters worse her name's Hime, which means princess in Japanese, and is a stark contrast to her dull, quiet and grumpy image. One day she bumps into this totally hot guy who all of a sudden declares his love for her. Of course, Hime thinks he must be trying to play some cruel joke on her and runs away, but he steals her notebook to force her to get a haircut and turn her life around. It's a really heartwarming story, because not only does she find love with her mysterious Prince Charming, but thanks to him she also manages to improve her social skills and make some friends. There are also plenty of laugh-out-loud funny moments, like the one in the picture above, where Hime tries putting on makeup for the first time and fails miserably. In addition the artwork is great, and does a brilliant job of making an already funny manga even more hilarious. If you're looking for a great romantic comedy this is for you.

Blackmail gone wrong is always a beautiful disaster, don't you think? Chika is well-known amongst her friends as a master of the nightly arts of pleasure and they always come to her for advice. Her supposed mastery comes from just reading magazines though, and she always feels guilty about lying and confesses to a school toilet (not the most sanitary confession room). She finds out one of her hot classmates is super into maids though and tries blackmailing him into sleeping with her, but she ends up falling for him instead. The second story is a continuation of the first one and shows how the two deal with a new rival appearing on the scene. This one is more about their relationship and I liked seeing how their relationship grew into something more than what it started as. It definitely loses the humor of the first one but I enjoyed both stories for the different sides of the characters they showed. The last story is unrelated but it has an adorable heroine who just wants some and a boyfriend who seems to only like studying. The expressions she makes are so funny! If you need some lovely spiciness mixed with a healthy dose of humor, I highly recommend this manga!

Sunny Dreams is the perfect title for this anthology packed full of heart-warming love stories. Ichimi Minamoto likes to write stories about office romances, but the different stories often feature characters from the same company, so you can read them like a series. The first and second stories in this manga also feature different characters working at the same company, so it's more like one story than two separate ones. The main characters in the first story are both very laid-back and have a really great relationship. It was a really soothing manga. The second story is the complete opposite of the first. The main character is a pretty awful woman who's desperate for a handsome boyfriend, goes to mixers every day, forces her work on to other people, and takes her problems out on other people. In the first story, she plays a supporting role as a love rival, and comes across as a complete bitch. However, whilst reading the second story you find yourself unable to hate her. In fact, by the end of the story I found myself liking her so much that she might even be my favorite character in any manga. She might look like she's being selfish for no good reason, but she's really insecure and hurting on the inside. I quite like this kind of character. After I finished reading this manga, it left me feeling all warm and fuzzy. I highly recommend it to all of you that are feeling a little tired and fed up right now.

Back in the day, I was never really into the intelligent-and-cool glasses look. The hot-and-wild look was more my thing, but as I've gotten older I've come to appreciate glasses. I mean, not when the glasses are on, which is hot by itself, but when guys take their glasses off... It's like you get to have your cake AND eat it too. In this manga, Mr. Sakaguchi is your typical hard-working glasses man. Pretty cool, not bad looking. Wearing a suit is a plus. But once he drinks even a small sip of alcohol, off come the glasses and out comes the beast slumbering within. That's what Momoko finds out when she goes back to a bar after a staff party to get her phone and finds Mr. Sakaguchi sleeping drunk. She's always found him attractive but a little too passive. But once she's had a taste of the beast, she can't go back!

Most of the manga on Renta! feature guys that are very confident around women; they know that they're hot and they have no qualms about using their charms on women to get sex. It's nice to read a story every now and then that throws something different at you. As the title would suggest, the male lead in this manga isn't the most confident of guys, his ex-girlfriend didn't enjoy having sex with him, leaving him unable to perform at all in the bedroom. Unfortunately for him, he is heard revealing all of this to one of his coworkers at a bar by Chihana, the female lead. Personally I found it hard to believe that he'd just be casually discussing his erectile dysfunction with one of his workmates, but that's a relatively minor complaint. Chihana moves in with Kousuke because she's got no place to stay, and he (refreshingly) doesn't make any kind of move on her. The two of them gradually become closer until Chihana realizes she's fallen for him. The art is clean and crisp throughout and the panels are a good size; it doesn't try to fit too much into one page like some manga. The sex scenes (Yes, he does manage to get it up at the end) are really beautifully drawn without an overuse of SFX. As I said at the start, Kousuke isn't like most guys in love manga, so he may be a little lacking in sexiness for some readers. However, I personally found this to be a nice change and think he more than makes up in cuteness what he lacks in sexiness. The other three stories in this anthology also feature more slightly more "passive" guys, but none of them are quite as passive or cute as Kousuke. I highly recommend this manga.

He's trying to escape a marriage arranged by his family and offers to give her so much money that she'll never have to work again... as long as she acts as his lover. I actually like my handsome manga guys as the selfish, pushy types, cause we all know that deep down inside, they just need some loving, right? I wish someone would offer me a bunch of money too... Then I could just read manga and hibernate until spring...

This week's recommendation is an anthology featuring four sweet-love filled stories. All four stories have a different main character, but each character is from the same family, and they all make cameos in each other's stories, making the manga feel like one big story rather than four separate ones. My favorite out of all the stories is the fourth one; it's about two childhood friends, who are both unaware that the other has feelings for them. As plots go, it's been done before, but the artist's illustrations are so beautiful and add so much emotional depth to the story that you can't help but be moved. The male character is a little rough around the edges, but it's adorable the way he overthinks everything the female character does; I just love the way that they interact with each other. There aren't many anthologies where all the characters are connected, so I found this manga really refreshing. In addition all of the supporting characters are really funny, (as is often the case in this author's manga) so be sure to look out for them.

I haven't watched American TV shows in years, but does anyone remember all those reality TV matchmaking shows in the early 2000's where a bunch of men and women live together to find their match? This short series is kinda like that, except without all the cameras and with all the more spice! Nanako's at the age where all her friends are off getting married and she's getting left behind, so she decideds to participate in a three-day getaway to find a boyfriend! Except the first person she meets ends up being her boss from work...! Of course we all know that looks aren't everything, right? Bodily compatilibility is a must! And of course those old TV shows couldn't show any of that funky stuff on or off camera, which is where manga comes in, right!? Who is Nanako's body compatible with!?

This book is so sweet! It features four stories. The first two are about two childhood friends. The last two are separate stories about two different couples, where the guys in both cases are trying their hardest to convince the girl to go out with them. The third story is my favorite. It's the one on the cover (I have no idea why the cover story is the third story). It features Misao, a beautiful girl that's just started high school, and Oribe, who's a wealthy, popular third year. Oribe falls for Misao the moment he lays eyes on her, but Misao isn't exactly fond of poor Oribe. It's really funny to watch him try and get close to Miaso, only to have her reject him every single time. This doesn't put Oribe off though, who stays true to the maxim "If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again." and eventually, after much persistence, he is able to win her heart. It's a real feel-good story with plenty of humor. Although Misao might seem like a big sour puss at first, she has her reasons for rejecting Oribe, and she manages to come out of things in quite a positive light. It's also set at the same school as the previous two stories, and there's a cameo from the two main characters.

This time I have an anthology for you all. I love anthologies because you get short, sweet (or should I say, spicy?) bites of lots of different stories, kind of like a sample course at a restaurant! My favorite story in this bunch is MY BOYFRIEND IS ALL WRONG. Rie likes talkative guys who take the lead, but at a mixer she gets paired up with Shinji, a quiet, video game-loving nerd and rejects all of his advances. It's all about falling for someone you thought you'd never fall for. Life is kind of like that, don't you think? It's important to have ideals and standards, but if you keep them up too high, you may miss out on the perfect chance for love!

This time I picked a manga by Sachiko Aida whose every work is always a hit whenever it appears on the site. I'm a big fan of Sachiko Aida's art and storylines just like you guys, and I think this one might just be my favorite yet! A love story between a bad boy and a good girl is a well-worn cliché in shojo manga, but although my head can see right through that, my heart can't help beating faster when I see the bad boy behave so differently when he's in love for real. Watching him go crazy in a fight and then melting around a girl he loves... nom! All of Sachiko Aida's manga series are funny and pleasant to read and this one too has many hilarious situations where a pure-hearted bad boy gets pushed around by a princess who's also an airhead. You'll be sure to die laughing just like I did! You definitely can't miss how the hero saves his damsel in distress from the paws of evil guys! Another great thing about this manga is supporting characters. The protagonist's friend, Tsubaki, and the cat, Mr. Yukichi, really add a special something to an already awesome series. I'm sure you'll enjoy it all!

One thing I really like about spicy love stories is that no matter how crazy or unrealistic the situations are, there's always love to be found. Yui's a sweet girl who just wanted to do anything to make the man she loved happy, which included lending him money and being his guarantor... And being the jerk that he is, he bails out on her, leaving a debt collector named Andou to come and collect the money from Yui. What really struck me was just how sad she was, knowing that her boyfriend wasn't coming back and taking responsibility. When worst comes to worst, sometimes you just gotta buckle down and work it out with whatever you got. And you just might find love along the way!

So I got a confession here to make. I've always liked bad boys. Like gangster type bad boys. But not too bad. I mean the ones with a heart of gold but still tough as nails, willing to protect the woman they love. That's what happens to Beni, who loses her only remaining family, her grandmother, and then finds out that her grandfather and father were gangsters! She becomes heiress to the gang and is forced to marry Udou, the leader of a different gang, in order for their gangs' survival. He's rough around the edges but soooooo cute when he's worried about Beni and runs to her rescue. Who needs a knight in shining armor when you got a smoking-hot gangster in a dark suit!?

Kazuma, an average, everyday hair stylist, gets called for an at-home appointment, which turns out to be more of an at-shady-mansion appointment. There he meets the mysterious owner of the mansion, Akihito, and the client, a scantily-clad, enigmatic woman named Sakura. While doing her hair several times a week and rebuffing her advances (at the risk of death by Akihito), Kazuma starts to fall for the mysterious Sakura and slowly uncovers the secrets of the mansion and the relationship between Akihito, Sakura, and the dark business they're involved in. If you need some darkness and mystery in the middle of summer, I highly recommend this title!

This is another great story about childhood friends in love from Mitsuru Wakana. There's a nice contrast between the two main characters, with the guy, Hajime, being uptight and a worry wart, and the girl, Erina, being a huge ditz. There are some really good comedy moments as well, like in the picture above where Hajime learns that Erina was intimate with her ex-boyfriend. Hajime spends a lot of the manga pretending that he isn't interested in Erina, that he's just worried about her safety, but it's obvious to everyone (except Erina LOL) that's not true. I highly recommend this absolutely adorable manga.

I had quite a few crushes back in high school. Nothing ever came of them because I was too shy to say anything to them, but if I had a second chance now, how would things turn out? That's what happens with Sanae and Fumiaki, how would things turn out? That's what happens with Sanae and Fumiaki, who were knew each other through high school and ended up in the same company. Sanae only remembers him as a little brother-like figure, but Fumiaki has deep feelings for her he's been keeping for all these years. At a welcoming party for new co-workers, she decides to break the tension between them with some "liquid courage" (one of my favorite lines ever) which gets her a little tipsy, and one thing leads to another (in typical manga fashion!). It's fun seeing a reunion spark something new. In a few years it'll be time for my own high school reunion, so I hope I can make sparks with liquid courage then too!

Stories about girls dressing up as boys, and going to an all-boys school are pretty common in shojo manga. However, this manga turns things on their head by having a popular actor dress up as a girl, and go to an all-girls school. The guy and the girl on the cover are in fact the same person! Like many high school romantic comedies, the main characters initially argue all the time, but secretly like each other. The sadistic nature of Hiroto, the cross-dressing actor, and his interplay with the female lead, Yurika, are really entertaining, and because he looks like a girl, the supportive way that the other female students react to what they assume to be a lesbian relationship is really funny. I particularly enjoyed the bits with Hiroto's female cousin. She's just as sadistic as Hiroto, and has a lot of fun messing with Yurika.

This epic saga about an average Japanese girl and a sheikh has to be one of the most romantic series available on Renta! It starts of like many sheikh stories: with a kidnapping. The main character, Sakura, and her father are abducted by Far, the prince of a faraway kingdom. At first, Sakura despises Far, but once she learns the motivation for his actions, she finds herself falling in love with him. The two of them are really suited two each other, and are very much in love, but they are constantly faced with obstacles which they have to overcome. However, their love never wavers, and they always manage to stay together. This is a must for those among you that love a happy ending, and at four volumes, it should keep you going for a while.

I recommend this to those spicy manga fans that enjoy a bit of story with their smut. A girl drinking away her sorrows at a bar after getting dumped has a one-night stand with a handsome man. However, the man she slept with turned out to be her new boss. The emotions of the female lead, who after what was supposed to be a one-time thing, finds herself falling deeply in love, are brilliantly depicted. I really recommend this if you like to get inside the heads of the characters.

The cover for this manga is fantastic! It's so good I wish I could get a copy to stick on my wall. Fortunately, the manga itself is also a great read. It's an anthology which contains three stories about young love; my favorites were the first and second stories. The first story is about a well-to-do girl from a wealthy family and a boy on the soccer team. The girl has a surprisingly sharp tongue and is strong-willed, which is an uncommon trait in well-to-do female manga characters. The interplay between her and the soccer team guy is really funny, and the way he's always so frank with her is really cool. The scene where he tells her he loves her is so sweet that you'll squee yourself to death, making this manga a must for the girls. The second story is about the love between a different (and less strong-willed) well-to-do girl and her childhood friend. It starts off as a cute and innocent love story, but the ending is so bittersweet that it's guaranteed to make you cry.

This manga isn't perfect, but its great spicy scenes make this a must read! I do wish that there were a few more scenes showing the affair between the Akito and Riko, but the twist at the end took me by surprise, and I felt it worked really well. By the way, affairs are something of a hot topic recently in Japan. There have been a number of scandals involving high-profile celebrities. I had thought that Japan was quite a free and open country, but considering how everyone's been reacting to these stories, maybe I was wrong. I don't know whether some other women genuinely do hope to have an affair or not, but I do know that there are a lot of spicy manga, like this one, that cover the subject.

My favorite thing about this manga has to be the art. It's really clean and well-shaded. I feel like you can really see how Wakana-sensei's work has improved compared to some of her earlier manga; I especially like the cover. For those of you who haven't read a manga by wakana-sensei before, you should know that her female characters are slightly chunkier than the average manga character, which makes a nice change. I'm a big fan of Saburo, the male lead in this story. He just can't keep his hands to himself (in a good way) and although he's very possessive of Mai, I can't help but be jealous of her for having someone that's so into her. There's also a cameo appearance by Reiya, who you can read about in "I LOVE YOU. I HATE YOU. NO WAIT... I LOVE YOU" and in addition to the main story, there's a chapter about Katsumi and Kyoji, who feature in "MY BELOVED TEACHER".

I'm always really cautious when it comes to renting a new place, which is probably why I haven't had much luck with moving. Every time I go to look at a new apartment, I think, "If only there was something special about this place." and end up staying put. If the apartments I looked at were more like the one in this manga, I would move in a heartbeat.

The girl in this story rents an apartment, only to find that it comes with a guy who says he's her boyfriend. She already has a childhood friend that she has a crush on, but the "boyfriend" is really hot and such a nice guy that she finds herself starting to believe that he really is her boyfriend.

There are lots of saucy scenes for you to enjoy, but I'd say that the real draw of this manga are the soothing scenes where the main character is all lovey-dovey with her boyfriend. If you ever find yourself struggling to choose a new place to rent, why don't you try giving this a read? You might find it useful.

This week's recommendation is one of Yuuki Hinase's manga. It's an anthology featuring three main stories and one spinoff. The first story is a staple of the shojo genre: a reverse harem story about a girl dressing up as a boy, and going to an all-boys school. However, it's the second story that I really want to recommend to you. Yuuki Hinase has drawn a lot of heartwarming manga in her time, but this one takes the cake. The heroine is a feisty girl who keeps rushing into things without thinking, and having nothing go her way. Hence the title, "Unlucky Girl". Here are a few examples to show how unlucky she is:
1. After her boyfriend cheats on her, she throws her phone in a rage and breaks it.
2. Just when she decides to work a few extra hours at her part-time job to save up money for a new phone, the place where she works closes down.
3. She gets dolled up in a yukata to see the fireworks display, with the intention of getting a new boyfriend, but it's cancelled due to a typhoon. She ends up walking around in the pouring rain, tripping over her yukata, and getting splashed by a passing car.
Just how long will her unlucky streak continue? Will she ever find love? You'll have to read it to find out.

Although I was expecting a purely smutty manga, I was pleasantly surprised (not that I dislike smut, mind you.) to find that this was much more than that. The story is about an erotic novelist and a porn star who start living together. Shiho, the erotic novelist has zero experience with men, and is suffering from an extended period of writers block. Kou, the porn star is devilishly handsome, and offers to teach her all about sex in exchange for a place to stay.

Now, it might sound like your bog-standard smut up to this point, but trust me, it's not. The way that their relationship develops is just adorable. You get a real sense that the two of them love each other, but are holding back. Especially Kou, who's worried about what impact his job as a porn star might have on Shiho. I don't want to say anymore because I might spoil it, but this really is a great read that will satisfy both your romance and smut needs. I really can't recommend it enough.

Okay. I realize this sounds like the title for something in the spicy section, but this really is a sweet manga. When the main character, Itta, asks out Riri, he tells her to be his slave (which is where the title comes from). Fortunately, she doesn't literally end up being his slave; if anything, it ends up with Itta becoming Riri’s slave because he's so madly in love with her. One of the great things about this manga is how ridiculously cute Riri is. She is the very definition of an airhead, which is what makes her so adorable - just look at the picture below if you don't believe me. Itta is ridiculously over-protective of Riri to the point that he (initially) won't have sex with Riri, for fear of hurting her. Itta isn't usually the type to worry about inflicting pain (as the old man who stalks Riri discovers), so it shows just how much he cares about her. There's plenty of humor to be had as well. The last chapter is particularly funny, with Riri drawing on Itta's penis to make it look like a prairie dog (yes, you read that correctly). This is all in all a great read, and I highly recommend it!

At first glance this manga looks like an erotic fantasy, but it's actually a really funny romantic comedy. In contrast to the fiery main character Rin, Char, the demon king of Avalon, is lazy, selfish and behaves like a kid. It's really funny seeing the interplay between the two of them. The scene where Rin beats Char with a fan is very reminiscent of manzai (a type of Japanese stand-up comedy). However, it's not lacking in the romance department either, and despite being childish a lot of the time Char manages to be really hot when he's making a move on Rin. I really love the fact that there are two distinct sides to him. I highly recommend this manga to people that love rom-coms.

In a dystopian future where sex is forbidden, one girl discovers the true meaning of love...

It has a nice happy ending, although at one point it seems like things might not work out between the leading lady and her man because he's actually... (Don't worry. I won't spoil it.) It keeps you guessing with numerous plot twists, and the artwork is a pleasure to look at. You can even read the first chapter for free! What are you waiting for?

I LOVE this manga. The main character, Makoto, has the affections of four handsome guys. Unfortunately for three of them, there's only one that she's interested in. The main selling point for me is the humor. There were lots of bits where I genuinely laughed out loud. One thing that really tickled me was how the artist used cute animals to cover up the characters' private parts. For example, when Makoto goes to get herself checked by the hot gynecologist (who she also happens to be really into), and she spreads her legs for him, instead of the usual white blur there's a picture of a teddy bear in between her legs. By the way, if you're someone who isn't usually into sex scenes, fear not. This manga is much tamer than the title would have you believe. In fact, it probably has the least sex out of all the manga in the sweet genre. Don't let that put you off if sex scenes are your thing, because this manga is hilarious and beautifully drawn. If you don't read it you'll be missing out.

One of the big draws is the cute and upbeat main character; she's just so airheaded that you can't help but like her, and want to read on to find out what happens to her. The artwork's a little lighter in tone than most vampire stories, and is overall neat and aesthetically pleasing, making the sex scenes alone worth a look.
