Hilarious. Great art. It's been out a day and I've read it twice already
All the stories were great, but pages 48-51 were worth the 5 bucks alone! I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard at a manga!
This is actually very sweet! The pacing is appropriate for the length of the work, and the art is perfect. I was initially a little iffy on the premise but I was pleasantly surprised how quickly some depth got mixed in. You don't get a lot of backstory or history regarding the characters, but you don't really need it; it didn't detract from the story at all. The miscommunication between the mains is resolved via an honest talk. FYI, there is a potential lack of consent moment, but it doesn't happen all the way through. I'm not sure the story had to go that direction, I think there could have been a different option, but the way the mains resolved their differences made up for it, for me.
I picked this up because it looked fun, and it did not disappoint. I was also pleasantly surprised by the depth of the characterization with the added bonus of the work having a pretty encouraging & non judgmental view of trans characters and sex work.
I've loved everything Nerima Zim has up on Renta, and this volume is no exception. Superb art and characters, plenty of humor, and just the right amount of drama.
This is a deceptively mellow-seeming story that really worms its way into your head and then your heart. Don't get me wrong--there's drama. But it's never over the top, and I feel like the problems they come up against are resolved naturally. The story is more about their developing relationship. The art is fantastic too, and really captures the emotion between the two characters, who are really well developed. This is a definite re-read for me.
Oh, this was good. I love how the author drew boobs and butts and legs and the poses...! There's also some great scenes of dudes in underwear. The characters were on the realistic side, in a good way, and I enjoyed the dialog during sex especially. It's always a treat when characters talk candidly about what they like and what they want. I'll definitely be rereading this in the future.
The style is different enough from what I'm used to, so I gave it a try. It's a sweet, simple story that's fairly normal, except for the one thing, which gets turned around at the end... anyway, before this stops making any sense: this was cute and both predictable and unpredictable. Worth a read.
This definitely didn't go where I thought it would go, and that made this story enjoyable. The author is pretty talented in setting you up to expect a common trope but then turns it around neatly. The art is nice, there's some humor but I never thought it veered over into ridiculousness. The characters are fun-- the heroine was relatable and had flaws, but I thought she was also pretty sensible and viewed her situation with self-awareness. I wish the series had been longer so that the author could explore the characters a little more, though, and if you're looking for a story with a firm romantic resolution, this one might miss the mark for you. Personally I didn't mind how it ended, and although I was constantly hoping that she'd end up with two boyfriends, the actual ending was still unusual enough to be pleasantly surprising.
This is probably my favorite story by Nerima Zim, although the author's ability to create unique, expressive characters is something I really enjoy on the whole. There's a good balance of humor and drama which moves the story along nicely. The progression of Shino and Aldo's relationship feels authentic, too, which I always appreciate. And the art is fantastic! I'll keep coming back to read this one :) :)
