Again, here we have a manga series I enjoy very much, and I need not post approximately 10 reviews composed of, like, 4-5 sentences each just to get across that it’s GOOD, and I RECOMMEND THEM. :]
Series: The Tyrant Falls in Love #1-8
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
Tetsuhiro Morinaga is secretly in love with his upperclassman, Souichi Tatsumi, who is demanding, tyrannical . . . and hates homosexuals. However, Tatsumi’s assets, his ass and crotch, are a beacon to the homosexual eye If only Morinaga could find love elsewhere.
So Koisuru Boukun, which is what I know this series by, is a pretty straightforward example of my overwhelming preference for and ability to overlook otherwise ostensible elements of manga counterpointed against regular ol’ fiction. Face it, if anyone write a book about a guy who’s been in love with his college friend for 5 years and decided to “break the ice” one drunken, almost inexcusable night, it’s gonna get crucified. By all.
But in a manga? I’m willing to forbear the potentially negative message within. Because when Morinaga aches, I ache. And when Tatsumi gets hit with confusion, so do I. There’s something about Hinako’s style that draws out complex emotions in simple ways. It’s pretty much the basis of my love for this series.
Well, and “Aru Hi Mori no Naka.” Below:
