TheBetterStory's Reviews ＆ Ratings
Not bad! The art is pretty, the character designs are great and the hint of worldbuilding is just enough to set the scene for our two monsterboys to fuck. It's pretty much porn-without-plot, but I wouldn't have minded reading more about these two. The seme's mischievous personality combined with the handsome naga design was especially nice. I'll probably check out the artist's other work if it's on here. Recommended if you want a light fantasy oneshot.
I really like Moto Haruyama for light reading. She's got a great grasp on what makes a cool character actually cool (i.e. feel thoughtful, reliable and good in social situations), but she's not above fun tropes like someone who's convinced he's the obvious top being blushy and cute in bed. Good times.
I bought this for the threesome content promised by the cover and premise, but it's more of a love triangle (the MC sleeps with both, but it's implied he'll have to pick one in the future.) The art is nice, but the smut is neither unique nor hardcore enough to really hold your attention, or distract from the total lack of plot. Honestly, the only part I really found entertaining were the bonus comics at the end, which show the MC going through relatable fudanshi things.
I rented this and didn't end up upgrading. Non-con and kidnapping ARE my cup of tea (and make no mistake, the first sex scene in here is straight up non-con), but this didn't do it for me. Yasuharu's a paint-by-numbers possessive/popular yandere top, missing the instability, quirkiness or depth that can make that type interesting. Yuma is more unique, and his pessimism and anxiety are relatable, but he doesn't actually grow as a character or overcome his problems
The manga is pretty casual about the fact the characters have been fooling around since elementary school. If that bugs you, you should pass. Otherwise, this is another outrageously fun manga from Tsurusawa, with unique characters and great sex scenes. I normally hate stories that focus on fetishes; they tend to have a formula where the person with the fetish is pushy and the other is uncomfortable. But Leo's fetish is just one aspect of their relationship, which is built on how comfortable and generally compatible they are with each other. Leo's possessive, but unlike most yaoi where that would be an excuse for him to isolate/"punish" Shion, he actually encourages him to be more expressive and make friends. Jealousy comes up and is dealt with way more healthily than your average yaoi. (Shion's also more of a power-bottom than he lets on.) Recommended if you want BL where the leads are happily, shamelessly head over heels for each other, without foregoing the wonderful smut.
This was cute, if not very deep. It's 90% sex, but we do get to find out a little about their hobbies and interests through the club. The seme's also refreshingly cute and expressive, to the point it was sad they weren't reversible (although the mangaka teases us with the idea a few times.) The sex is also more consensual than your average yaoi, which makes this a good pick if you need something light and happy that still goes all in with the smut.
The art is great and the sex scenes are good, but that's all this is. There's no conflict outside of the men's relationships, and whatever conflict there *is* is predictable and solved easily. Maybe good for a rental if you like the art and want some junk food.
A light, fun read. The romances are sweet and down-to-earth, the sex is consensual, and the art is cute and sketchy. A good choice if you're craving fluff that still has a decent amount of sex scenes.
In terms of plot this is kind of a mess, but it's just so much *fun.* The artist's great at visual comedy.I was giggling throughout the book. Note for the sensitive that there's some casual sexual assault between the main couples, but if you read yaoi you're probably used to that already. I had a great time reading this one.
Hmm. I love me an uke with commitment issues, but I had more trouble getting into this than I thought. I'm not sure if it was the translation or the actual writing (I'm thinking a bit of both), but the plot was a bit hard to follow, to the point I wasn't actually sure how the characters felt about each other in the end.
