User Reviews For: I Shouldn't Like This
I'm not sure how I feel about this manga. On one hand, it utilizes the tried and tested yaoi trope where the seme chases the uke until he gives in, so it shouldn't bother me. Except it does. For the whole first half of this manga, Yukiuya's pursuit of Akio was full on harassment. Even worse, Akio was really stressed and worried about it. At one point, Yukiya acknowledges that his pursuit is making life difficult for Akio, but does nothing to reel in his possessive, obsessive behaviour that is causing the boy he 'loves' so much distress. And I get that it was supposed to be funny, but I just didn't find it funny when Akio's friends teased him about Yukiya as it caused him even more distress and alienated him from the people around him. in the end, it felt like Akio was with Yukiya because he was bullied into it, not because he really loved him. I mean, the last part of the manga was sweet which made me give this a 3-star rating, but getting to that point was just disturbing.
