The story starts off reasonably enough, but the bathhouse manager is a pushy perv! (so are the gay customers, who aren’t portrayed in the best light) Of course, they have a history that adds drama to their relationship. The art is pretty nice to look at with sexy scenes spread throughout. There are a few places where the word choice seems wrong, and some of the dialogue is weird.

Feels a bit short, like it would have done better as more than a one-shot, but for its length the story was well-developed and the characters had room to evolve. The art style works for this story and overall the translation seems good, though there are a few places where it may have been off (the 11th heir? Shouldn’t it be 1st heir, or at least higher up if he’s the oldest son?). The emotional connection between the main characters is wistful, especially at the end. Overall, I enjoyed this story and would read again.

Starts with an interesting concept for a museum display (the auction from the description comes later), and the uke’s determination to do well was endearing. I think the description is a little misleading for what actually happens (he isn't forced to stay so much as chooses to because of his pride, though he clearly is still reluctant). The art is nice to look at, and I liked many of the facial expressions and poses. Good balance between serious and humorous with a reasonably well-developed plot for such a short story.

I’m giving this story a low star rating for the following reasons: too many unexplained plot details which made the story harder to enjoy and the translation needed some more editing. As for those plot details (potential spoiler warning): The reason for why the main character stays at a job that makes him so uncomfortable is unclear (though you can make guesses: he needs money, his pride, etc.), and I felt uncomfortable at how uncomfortable he felt. And what about how the misunderstanding about the conditions of the job happened in the first place (Did he not read the contract/handbook? This is never explained.). There is also some confusion about how customers find out about the elevator, considering how the childhood friend shows up (Wouldn’t you pay for the service in advance, or is this a complimentary special service they surprise VIPs with?) Too many questions for short porn stories, I know, but these questions made enjoying this piece difficult.

Warning that there are non-consensual scenes! If that doesn’t interest you, skip this one. This story is so short that I did wish there was more, even though the plot was a bit flimsy already. I’m totally getting the “I’m not gay, but I’ll be gay for you since you helped me” vibe from the protagonist so his feelings didn’t seem as genuine as the other character, and you get more action from the non-con scenes than the main couple. However, the uke isn’t a total pushover so I have some respect for him, even though he makes some nonsensical choices.

I took a chance on this story because the title amused me. You can imagine how silly the contents are (I love you so I bioengineered a sex-crazy octopus for you…). For a “world-famous biologist”, the Professor makes some strange leaps in logic and doesn’t have much understanding of human sexual desire. His assistant also jumps to some conclusions, but I suppose that was supposed to be endearing. The art is a little odd at times and some of the lines sound like a bad porno film so I had trouble controlling my laughter during what I assume were meant to be more serious scenes. This was an amusing tale, but probably doesn’t offer enough to make me want to read it again.

This manga was cute enough that it leaves me wanting more. The art is nice to look at and the premise is interesting, though the plot didn't have much room to develop (almost feels unfinished, like there should be another volume). I like how the uke is manly, and not young and overly feminine. I did chuckle at how the government doesn’t understand the biology problem, but smiled at the uke’s determination to uphold the terms of their contract. Though both men are a bit silly in expressing themselves, you get a sense of their growing feelings for each other. I’m sure I will be re-reading this story again.
