OL Katsuragi is in love with her married boss Mr. Nitta, but is confessed to by the office womanizer, Yuu. For a pornographic series with plenty of erotic scenes, the characters are very well developed and you can't help but feel emotionally involved in Katsuragi's predicament between two men who actually are romantically and sexually attracted to her in two believable yet different ways. It's drawn very well, I'm particularly fond of the facial expressions and outfits - suits and dresses. True to it's title, the themes for many of the scene is "secretly public sex", which is done a lot. I've reread it a few times and would highly recommend the series in it's entirety.
Sakura is a courtesan forced into prostitution and inadvertently charms the mysterious samurai Fukakusa on her first night, but must deal with the lecherous brothel master Kohachiru. The story goes back and forth between Fukakusa's and Kohachiru's erotic teasing throughout the story with little payoff. Even though I particularly like the details in the hair, costumes and setting I never found it very re-readable and I wouldn't recommend.
It's a typical story of a waitress, Mayo, working with her sexually attractive male coworkers with the primary focus on the Cool Guy Shoichi and her bitter male rival for Shoichi's affections, Tsukasa. The male romantic rival is a small variation from the norm. It does include "Non-con", where there's "enjoyable" erotic scenes where Mayo is verbally non consenting throughout. There's plenty of sexual chemistry between Mayo and Shoichi but not romantic. The art style manages to be simultaneously cute AND sexy, the intimate scenes have good positioning but Mayo's facial expressions are just a tiny bit disconcerting. Because it's one of the earliest Renta's I've read it a few times and it holds up quite well, partly because of the multitude of scenes and art style
2.25/5Chemistry - +.25 Haruna consents, but considering her choice is based on "love" there doesn't seem to be any good reason for her final decisionVariation - +1 there's four different partners, voyeur, a threesome and toys Value - 62 pages +.25 - There's four scenes, each only about three pages long, it spends too much time on the "plot" that's not very engagingQuality - +.25 - the Poses are stiff, lots of "chibi" faces , zoomed in panels and sparse backgroundsEntertainment - .5 - I've reread it a few times, but the story has been done in a better way before.
