Porn with a Plot

xD I don't usually like to call manga porn, but... in this case it sort of felt like it. Porn with a plot pretty much describes every story in this collection. Plenty of smut, a little bit of love and affection and just enough of a story to spread it across 30-ish pages. 7/10 - the last story wasn't so bad i guess, but i didn't really enjoy the rest very much as far as the story went.

1- 3 1/2
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I could really understand their obvious love for each other - cause when you love someone you'd get fucked in front of that person to "cure" him... That's called sacrifice! At most I'd give it 1 2-2-Dessin
No sense.
3-Torso
Sickening, meaningless...
4-Sasayaka na Yokubou
just what the-
5-Metamorphosis
ugh. no comment.
Vanilla Boys
This one was the one I liked the best... And that might be caused by the happiness of finishing it too... I just kept reading it cause I have started - I don't like dropping series and since this was short...
Anyways, at least this one had the slightest sliver of emotion
And just when I thought, Ok, not as meaningless as the others, a guy appears with an absurd name like "rainbow man" or sth and tries to fool the guy, and the real rainbow guy appears trying to rescue him! So meaningful, and romantic. (obvious sarcasm)



So in the end I only feel disturbed, I have wasted my time just to finish it. Still I don't really regret reading it - even though I really really did not liked it, and deleted all the manga's of Sadahiro Mika from my wish list afterwards.

3 1/2 and Torso

Okay, I'm only reviewing the two stories that don't have their own page, the rest of the reviews are there.

3 1/2:
This was an odd story, I'm not sure if I liked it or not actually. It's nice to see a Mohawk in a BL story, and I liked that it was a happy (?) ending, but the middle is so out there, I'm sort of on the ropes with my feelings for this one.

Torso:
Ohhhh, wow. I love cracked out stories. I don't think I've laughed as hard since Agnus Dei - Lamb of God , which also happens to be by Sadahiro Mika.

So this guy has no friends, and his family is never there, so he falls in love with a marble bust. Yes, like the kind you may picture when you think of Rome. So he becomes an art student, presumable to sketch more torsos like his bust-buddy. Then as an art student, he sees a male model with a mid-section like his beloved bust and attempts to make friends. Sort of succesful, but then invites him home to introduce him to the bust. Not the best of choices in terms of scaring away that new friend. Perhaps that knife point rape where you covered up everything but his abs was a bad move too. And some advice to said new pal, maybe after that knife point rape would be a great time to RUN THE HELL AWAY. not just chill in the shower for a while.

These people are honestly hilarious, really.

If you're into WTF moments, than this a good read for you. I enjoyed the, *cough* art. Metamorphosis was almost to dark for me, stay clear if you're not into S&M

LOL. I am seriously confused. the sex is hot but there is a madness and craziness in these stories which scares me. crazy fantasizing should be like this. haha.

However, the art is good and the stories are interesting but if you cant bear with unnatural kind of relationships and connections, don't try it.

The torso chapter is sooooooooo wrong. It makes me giggle so hard.
(paraphrasing)
Guy1: "I love you statue you're my only friend." *humps statue*
Guy2: I bet I'm better than your statue! *humps guy1*
Guy1: As a matter a fact you are better than my statue. Statue, Lets break up, I've fallen in love with someone else.
