Yakunen, the guys in yaoi manga GENERALLY are hot! Shota or not. No one says it's okay to molest children if you're handsome, wtf! Is it your first shouta manga or what? Show me one where the guy is fugly! Also, those who enjoy shouta manga don't always fantasize about having sex with children-- not only the shota characters hardly resemble rl children (both in looks and behavior), many yaoi readers indentify with the ukes! in this case meaning the super cute innocent and helpless shota characters. And yes, it's okay to fantasize about WHATEVER you a person wants/needs to... (and you might to be aware that a pedophile cannot helpp being a pedophile so if having shota/loli manga as an outlet means they won't turn to real children, it's great). Torturing and killing people in rl is more harmful than molesting them but somewhat no one complains about all those violent video games, movies like Saw or Hostel... Fantasy is fantasy and no one forces you read shota if you see your little brother in those fictional characters! I don't even see real men in gay yaoi adults-- none gay man I've met in rl were like them. I am not a fan of gays in rl, I don't seek to be friends with them etc. but I love yaoi manga-- because it not realistic.

On the manga-- both the art and chara design are super pretty and cute (as expected of Minami Haruka). The stories are adorable, the characters' behavior.... The stories are oneshot, meaning there isn't much character development etc. but yeah, the manga is SMUT. Read it if you want something pretty, sexy and don't mind younger characters in manga smile

IT'S OKAY TO MOLEST CHILDREN AS LONG AS YOU'RE HOT!

I agree with the people who consider Minami Haruka's works as nothing more than a good source of porn. I have a passionate distaste for shotacon, so naturally I absolutely hated chapter 3. The first page of where the story begins was mortifying.

Why is it that child porn is a terrible thing in real life, but something okay to draw and fantasize about? I have an 8-year-old brother and frankly I'm not okay with some man coming into the house and molesting him, then having the audacity to try to convince him that what they're doing is okay. If the man in the story wasn't so attractive, nearly everyone who reads it would be horrified. So what exactly does this mean? It's totally fine for good looking people to rape and molest small children, BUT IT SUDDENLY BECOMES A SEVERE CRIME WHEN SOMEONE UNATTRACTIVE DOES THE SAME DAMN THING?! Don't get me wrong, I'm not fighting for unattractive pedophiles here. That is complete and utter nonsense. I'm not even trying to get you to stop enjoying shota. My point is that whether or not you support shota, your decision shouldn't be based on how pretty the drawings are or how cute the characters seem.

Aside from my infinite loathing for shotacon or anything else even remotely related to child pornography, I usually enjoy Minami's better works. Although the plots are predictable and nearly all the "ukes" appear to be under-age, most of the time these stories do make decent porn and it does have its cute moments.

This may not be the best place to respond, but I was originally a Minami Haruka hater before I warmed up to her manga. The thing about her manga is that it's not pretentious - there's nothing remotely groundbreaking or philosophical about her works. It knows EXACTLY what it is: pure, shallow good-natured porn, and it does try to do a good job of delivering that in a variety of ways.

As long as you don't try to look for something that was never there, and if you shut your brain off and just hop on the ride for the heck of it, it's surprisingly tolerable. (She went from one of the most hated mangakas to one of my sources of mindless, good yaoi porn. biggrin)

Just wanna keep my comments simple and short. Two words Cute and adorable!! Every story is good except Story #3, It was too shota and weird for me but it's not that bad i guess. The art is good as usual but the criticism i have is that the characters looks alike. I enjoy reading it except #3!!

i don't understand why so many people like minami haruka; she is my least favourite big-name mangaka. her stories are generally insipid even on the rare occasion that they're not PWP; her characters are impossible to tell apart from one story to the next, even her seme look like anorexic girls, everything she writes feels like shota because her characters LOOK prepubescent no matter what age they claim to be, and her art style seems designed for minimum effort (except her eyes. she does reasonably nice eyes). the extremely low rating here however is due to story 3 (sweet home) because it portrays precisely the sort of pedophile who in actuality preys on small children with precisely the sorts of arguments he will make, and while i can stomach some shota this goes beyond anything i'd ever find remotely hot (especially with dressing the kid up in mom's apron and smearing mom's lipstick on the little boy's penis while telling him that this way his mom will share an indirect kiss -- could it get much grosser?). off my hard drive with this piece of garbage.
