“If I ever get brave enough to say I like you from the top of my lungs–” Bessho coincidentally meets Makita in a university lecture they share, finding out that they both like cute things. While Bessho hides his preferences like a dirty little secret, Makita makes no excuses for who he is and what he likes. Despite the twists and turns, they encounter along the way, the pair of lovers deal with their possessive and jealous urges on their slow journey to answering the age-old question: what is the best way to fall in love?
College student Sano, who is curious about love but has never felt it, decides to go to associate professor Kigami, who’s famous for doling love advice out to his students. When he’s mistaken for a part-time assistant, however, Sano gets roped into cleaning the Archaeology department’s room for Kigami instead. Impressed by his work, Kigami gives him advice in exchange for his trouble and suggests Sano be his teacher’s assistant for real. But would his advice still successfully snag Sano a girlfriend, even though Kigami’s only ever liked guys?
Another title I picked up because it is on the first page lol. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it.
Hananomiya’s student council president Taisei Mizuki has his hands full with rehabilitating Sosuke Hakaze, the school’s number one problem child. As Hakaze’s acts grow worse, Mizuki can’t take it and blurts out, “how can we get you back to how you were before!?” In response, Hakaze says he’ll show Mizuki how…by kissing him (!) and even jerking him off (!!) Can Mizuki, pure in both mind and body, even stand a chance of enduring the naughty chain of “rehabilitation activities” they’ve just started?
Futekiya subscription was free for the entire month of May so I decided to try their service. I picked up Seitokai randomly because it seemed light and fun, and basing on futekiya’s smutty level, it is indeed smutty.
Frustrations from Mujintou led me to Tabetemo… I guess I didn’t want to accept that Yamada Nichoume is only as good as Mujintou, so I decided to give them another try with their new-ish series. Thankfully, I’m not disappointed.
In a world where demons and humans coexist, humans are treated as rare species. A chance encounter with a big-horned demon made a big change in Hiyori’s relatively peaceful life. Hodaka, the demon, demanded to allow Hiyori to eat him.
This is a pleasant surprise. I was expecting it to be full of blackmail, judging from the cover with cowering Hiyori and a towering demon in the background. But Tabetemo subverts every expectation I have.
I’ve had this book on my Kobo for the longest time that I can no longer remember what made me pick this up. I think it was the Datte Maou-sama wa Kare ga Kirai series that sparked my Yamada Nichoume phase? At the time, I was fairly new with their writing and wanted to know more. Sadly, this phase ended prematurely with Mujintou. God knows how many times I’ve tried to read this, put down, wait, restart again.
You know, it’s hard to talk about this book because I had a rough time wrapping my head around this most of the time. With each restart, I hoped that things would get a little clearer to me. But to no avail. Even after finishing it now, I’m still quite lost and confused at some parts of this one. Maybe because I wanted to like this book so much and have liked some of Yamada Nichoume’s works before that I couldn’t let myself think that this book somehow disappointed me?
With his sharp looks and handsome face, Kenta Sasanuma’s boss, Wataru Kuji, is Mr. Popular with everyone… In reality, though, he loves physical pleasure… and will do it with anyone!! Now, it looks like Kenta’s well-endowed manhood is in his sights. Almost every day, be it in the restroom or a meeting room, Wataru buries his face in Kenta’s lap and then practically begs him to stick it in. Kenta’s poor junk is being all kinds of exploited by his relentless boss…! Tossed about by his aggressive bottom of a manager, plain-old sales rep Kenta is in for a happy world of trouble.
I’m gonna be honest. What urged me to read this was because of that cover. I mean, who wouldn’t be lured by that cover?! LOL
Anyway, despite the summary, this book is actually composed of multiple short stories and pairings. Sasanuma and Kuji is just one of them. So I’ll tell you what stories I enjoyed and what could have done better.
Tapas had a BL week last January 27-February 2. There are 5 titles included, and their first few chapters are free. I grabbed the chance to read since the sample chapters are more than the usual preview chapters. Since these are only a handful of chapters, this post is just about my first impressions on them.
