Man that was so funny and the smut scenes could fog up my screen!
Maybe it's because I am a young adult that I could take it lightly and didn't find it uncomfortable at all, unlike some of the other readers. Anyway, if you are after a steamy yaoi manga that's not too heavy in the plot department and has halarious comedy moments, than I highly suggest you read this one.

Very graphical, but interesting.

Yes, it is very graphical and detailed in every aspect. But - For me, that's not something to nag about and only puts the focus on a more mature audience. The same goes for the storyline, since it deals with aspects, that are usually taken as joke or not even tried to be described in a similar way. Let's start with the artwork ...

The artists drawing style is detailed and clean, using thin lines to highlight and giving the characters realistic body structures. The characters design is edgy and rough, but IMO it fits the whole atmosphere and makes them somewhat natural. They all have their distinctive expressions and styles, so all in all the drawings are likeable.

The storyline starts off funny, yet awkward and brings right away a serious matter up. Everyone can guess, that the character is troubled by his "problem" and deeply embarassed. The whole AV theme is something, that even in modern times, that people try to avoid or look down on. Right? So, for me it was refreshing to see a view on the people involved and not a blunt view on the "phyiscal" side being sold there, although this comes also into the storyline - As you can guess. However, it was nice, how the other characters tried to think about the main characters issue and sided with him, even though they break out laughing a few times, just like I was while reading. Lol.

That's why, if you can take a mature view on this whole setting and if the graphical style isn't too much for you, or if you like manly characters, then you should try for yourself.

Let me just say that this manga neither turned me on nor made me laugh. That's pretty much it. I somewhat even felt uncomfortable with it, but it might be due to the fact I'm still not quite used to mangas related to the AV business. Either way it's still undeniable I didn't find any joy in reading this, in fact I almost dropped it once but just because I wanted to put it to my Complete list I decided to give it another go and put up with it to finish as fast as I could. Can't say I didn't try, it still bugged me a lot. The art to me is also kinda gross, not in a nasty way, it's just hard to look at normally. So definitely a no from me.

So Funny!

As well as having hot/cute sex which actually made me blush just for the main characters situation, this was really funny with adorable characters and a slightly kooky plot.

Some people have said it is really smutty, and although there were a lot of sex scenes (not unusual considering they work in the porn industry!) I don't think they were crudely drawn or even that unusual for yaoi. Smut *for me* implies porn, and because of the way this was written I don't really categorize it as such. I was also surprised that some people commented on the non-censored aspect of the manga - for me now this doesn't even register and I actually get more annoyed if it is censored! So, maybe a little smutty, but mostly a lot of (both funny, hot and cute) sex scenes.

My favourite character is Josh! Kya! And that extra dude at the end, who's name I don't remember (dark haired?) was really cute and funny too x

READ! Especially if you want a good laugh and decent read! X

While it's absolutely hot, Ikenai Otoko is also funny, cute, and entertaining overall.
The characters were all unique with unique personalities. I was happy with the variety of characters. I also enjoyed how the mangaka played with the stereotypes associated with uke and seme.
The art is less of a typical BL-style, which is somewhat of a refreshing change.

I suppose the porn aspect may offend some people's sensibilities... but if you're reading yaoi smut, I'd say you've fallen pretty far already... so~

I could see this being an entire series, so I'm disappointed it's only a single volume.

This is a manga is very, very smutty, crude artwork, very good but shallow story... Yet all these came together to make an uber hot manga that I could re-read again and again. Would give it a 10, but it was TOO SHORT!!! WANT MORE!!! :'(

I just had to give a ten for giving me satisfaction to my lust... It's really perfect for me! Story wise, nothing to complain about but somehow the past story between shino and josh kinda had a bit more depth than tatsuya and ryou! Oh well, that's just me~~!! Characters are cute and hot, drawings are clean and explicit. I'm on cloud nine!

This was the first manga where I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with. He's just so LOVABLE and cute and innocent! I felt embarrassed about his
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and I was embarrassed to turn the next page because I adored him so much I didn't want him to be embarrassed lol but as I progressed I cheered him on. The art is fantastic and the characters are extremely likable and not in the least annoying. I recommend EVERYONE to read this manga. D'aww this will forever be in my heart <3 <3 <3

my god, first time in a yaoi manga where i actually felt my face turning red and feeling embarrassed :$
this has a LOT of smut and sex scenes *o* it's also non - censored which i honestly don't mind wink
just seeing how the characters in the manga have to model and do everything that there told.. well could make you want to hide. The art is extremely good! so instead of finishing this manga, i'd rather read something else that the author and the artist created.. just to my liking.
