Yuuhi Romance is basically a stab at some incestuous romance, with plenty of comedy mixed in for good measure. Sadly there’s absolutely nothing that allows this short manga to stand out amongst others of its kind.

Plot / Story
Yuu is the older sister, Hiro is the younger brother, Yuu loves her younger brother… That’s basically is how every damned chapter begins and it’s annoying as hell. The beginning actually laid out the plot really well and sets this up to be a very interesting manga, dealing with the issue of forbidden romance. But very quickly the 3 “R”s set in and proved to be its major downfall: Repetition, Randomness and Retardation. To sum it up, every chapter feels like an oneshot focusing on any random idea that the mangaka plucked out of thin air.

So in the end the story lacked continuality and in turn this meant the characters didn’t develop. It’s just good that out of all the characters that can be remembered there were quite a few likable ones, making the characters the strongest aspect of this manga.

Drawing Style
On the other hand the artwork can be simply described as “messy”. The character designs were inconsistent, to some degree, meaning that any detail you’re used to seeing in manga character features are basically non existent. Some people may not mind the subpar art but I didn’t care for this lazy mangaka’s illustrations.

Overall / Enjoyment
Overall Yuuhi Romance is just one of stories that can be read and enjoyed because it’s short and sweet, but can also be a wasteful experience. It just merely depends on what category of audience you’ll fit in and in my case I would be in the latter category.
