Collection of short stories:

1) Coward's Happiness or Ikujinashi no Shiawase
The owner of a rice shop, Kawada feeds a poor student, Mori, after he tried to steal food from his shop, saying 'The duty of a student is to study'; and starts to look after him. But Mori starts harboring deeper feelings towards Kawada, not just gratitude...

2) Slave of Love
Mitsuo is the manager of a host club owned by his cousin, the violent and ruthless Eito. Eito raised Mitsuo from a very young age, but they've grown apart, despite still living together. When Mitsuo decides to help a younger coworker quit the business, he runs the risk of making Eito very angry...

3) Revenge of Love
The drama continues with a twist.
(This is continuation of story #2.)

Letting his oversized half-Japanese nephew live with him is one thing, but a man will soon discover that the nephew is keeping a dark secret...

5) Child's Secert or Kodomo no Himitsu
Mori and Kaname are cousins with secrets. Mori is harbouring a crush on his older cousin and is plagued by erotic dreams at night. Kaname, on the other hand, likes to tease Mori by giving him alcohol and 'playing' with him after he passes out.

Naono Bohra is an amazing mangaka and always comes up with new ideas. I love her work and I wish there was more! Other mangaka could really learn for her. I definitely suggest any and all of her work. biggrin

.... are usually not my cup of tea, they lack character development and seem very rushed, but this is an exception. All the stories here are enjoyable and funny, the smex is, well, hot and steamy; you could not ask for more (except maybe a sequel to Slave/Revenge of Love).

Ikujinashi no Shiawase (A Coward's Happiness) - That is my favorite. But, as usual the oneshots done by Naono-sensei are wonderfully entertaining and completely worth a look.

The ne plus ultra answer to when you have a bit of time with your tea and have to scratch an itch!
Naono-sensei is the master of oneshots. The ones in this collection where enjoyable. Not unforgettably so, but still good! I've rated Slave of Love and Revenge of Love separately because they are worth a special mention.
