From MF:

12-year-old Momoki Asuka first met his soon to be step brother, 7-year-old Momoki Yui. The brothers were closer than the average step brothers until one fateful summer's day. They both accidentally got locked in a cabinet together for one hour at a abandoned warehouse near their family vacation destination. However, after they finally escape, something life changing happened to 12-year-old Yui in that cabinet. Yui began avoiding Asuka by joining his school Tennis club.

10 years later...

Life has changed for 17-year-old Yui and 22-year-old Asuka. Yui is a super tennis star while Asuka is still depressed that his younger brother is ignoring him.

As Asuka is still being avoided by Yui, the family decides to go to the same family vacation destination 10 years ago. Although, for the first time in 10 years, Yui chooses to join along with the family. At the same abandoned warehouse, Asuka gets stuck in a hole until Yui purposely joins and gets stuck with him.

Now that the two brothers are together, Yui reveals the secrets of what happened to him in the Cabinet 10 years ago and how it had changed him.

What will the brothers do, now that their secrets are revealed? Will they grow further apart or will they become closer?

Yuzuha Ougi's story, Brother, recounted in a hypnotic, dreamy prose, brotherly love, encapsulates the perfect true love feeling of sexual tension and alienation.


From DramaQueen:
Momoki Asuka and Momoki Yui are two step brothers who were the best of friends until an unfortunate incident one summer's day. Ever since then, Yui has avoided Asuka at all costs, even going so far as America to study.

A super tennis star, Yui no longer needs a big brother, so where does that leave poor Asuka? What happens when brotherly love transforms into something more?

A lot of fake incest joyful reading :> Well, most of tags are according to my liking. So, smutty comedy this time... Art is very unique for this author, in a good way. I noticed that at the beginning uke had more manly features than at the end of series, he got prettier and more slender, just like having fun made him more feminine? O.K. I'll stop that nitpicking. What can I say yet, there is no deeper plot but it isn't a disturbance. Just a nice entertainment.

I don't understand all of the positive reviews. I give this a 2. And that's being generous. The art is terrible (horrible anatomy, especially the headshots. Seriously, what is up with that guy's head and neck?

And there's no plot. There's something apparently going in the chapter, but it always leads to an excuse for them to have sex. Seriously?

The characters are a hella annoying, too. Girly uke that lets his behemoth-sized younger brother control him. He's either begging his brother for sex, or he's letting his brother push him into sex. His brother has jealousy issues, is too controlling, and is pretty annoying, too.
These characters have nothing to them. They're 1 dimensional; no character growth at all.

Recommended for those looking for PWP and smutty sex scenes. Otherwise, stay away and don't waste your time.

Frankly, I really disliked the art. There were several times when I thought, "Ugh, I can't stand this. Let's just give up." Then I'd find myself roped back in a day later, curious about what happens next to the spotlighted couple.

The plot isn't deep, nor are the characters well-developed. Nonetheless, the story is unique, and the characters are captivating. Refreshingly, the couple goes through the same trials and tribulations any normal couple would endure in real life—they're insecure, jealous and crazy for each other. I enjoyed the plot so much that, by the second volume, the art stopped bothering me.

There's one thing I'll admit was well-drawn: those smutty scenes were seriously hot! Although it's nothing fancy, it's quite explicit...just the way I like it. (ʘ‿ʘ✿)

Chet Manly approves.

I loved this manga, its funny and has a good, simple yet interesting story. There is a lot of sexy scenes but there is story as well. Yui is cool and looks so hot n sexy when he gets mad (of course he is good looking thoughout the manga) and Asuka is so cute. I love the face expressions and the art was good. Can't wait to read, "Brother 2", I hope its just as good!

THIS beautiful manga is the reason why I got into yaoi and why the yaoi world can be so amazing. All the elements that I love about a love story are here.

I mean, you have two people who grew up together from a very young age....and they fall for each other. I actually get emotional talking about this because it's very sweet. They love each other so much and people should see and feel it when reading this. I especially felt sad for Yui because he was always trying to be equal with Asuka.

I have to give this a 10 if not more! A true yaoi masterpiece.

At first it was a little weird for me, but then I settled into the story. It was hilarious that all kinds of women were attracted to Yui, and all kinds of men to Asuka (and the latter never noticed his own predicament). Lol!

The art is a bit unusual, but definitely still very pleasant (I especially love the way Yui is drawn - very lithe and interesting! And not too posy).

I feel a little bad for the younger one, since he's loved the elder for 10 or 11 years. Wow.

The characters are great together. I even love the mom, dad, and little sister (I love that the mom met the dad, decided he was the one, and snatched him up - hot), and the manager (she was badass)! And I'm so, so happy they're not related by blood (sibling love makes me uncomfortable, as I have several siblings myself, and...ew). Also, the seme isn't too controlling (just a bit insecure, since he IS only 18), and the uke actually loves sex and isn't a fainting damsel.

It's a lot of the things I love in one story! and two volumes! Yay!

But... what's with the author and her nipple fetish? I don't get it. Most guys I...ahem, have known intimately don't like them touched that much... ah well.

Weirdly, the older brother reminds me of my grandpa with his personality (only my grandpa was more self-aware)... I'm sure that should mean something, but whatever.

This series has it all for me. Lovely art, pretty but masculine men, and a story that's both funny and dramatic. The sex scenes are extremely hot, uncensored, and well-drawn. Yes, there is a lot of sex, but that's not all there is. The relationship between Asuka and Yui feels realistic and is adorable. Though the theme of step-brothers isn't new to yaoi, the way it's done is. There is no girlish uke here, or one-sided relationships. It feels like a love story between equals.

I did like this volume more than the sequel, mainly due to the art changes and censoring in volume 2, but "Brother 2" is still good.

I like this manga; it's not one of my top YAOI manga, but it's good. smile Like any other manga, this one's got a good amount of comedy, character jealousy, and small dramas. It's cool how Yui plays tennis and he's hot; I like tennis too. ;P

It took me three years to find this manga!! And it was worth the hunt!! I would not recamend this series to the faint of heart...or you who can't handle super streamy love scenes!!

Angsty tension between brother was awsome to read. I loved it!! One of the top manga I ever read!! All Yaoi fans should check this out. (but note that this manga ka...nothing is held back...;D)
