Description
Haru visits Canada to spend the summer holidays in the woodland house of his strict, strong-willed mother, Haruko. There, she burdens him with the responsibility of caring for his younger adoptive brother - a wild and unruly little boy named Ren who trusts no-one and prefers to wander in the woods with Haruko's dogs rather than associate other people. Haruko orders Haru to 'civilize' Ren.

As the young man strives to teach Ren how to live in human society, their relationship gradually improves - so much so that Haru plans on taking his 'little brother' to Japan with him once he finds a job.

Unfortunately, fate has a cruel habit of interfering with one's plans...

Okay, here's the thing. I love this manga a lot for the art and the somewhat realistic conflicts that Ren and Haru both have with each other. But I also hate this manga for the relationship progress of the main pairing. REN WAS A KID FOR GODSAKE (not that I'm against shota or anything) BUT OMG HARU YOU CANT JUST DO THAT TO A KID

Halfway reading, it sort of feels as though Ren is inclined to love Haru not only as a brother anymore because as it was stated in the manga itself, Haru had imprinted himself on Ren. I know that Ren has issues but to me, him falling for Haru feels...forced..?

(Spoilers ahead)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Okay so Ren hates kind people, he's scared of them. Haru was the first kind person that ever tried to get close to Ren and it worked. Imagine if it wasn't Haru. Imagine if it was some girl from west canada just like him. Would he feel inclined to fall in love with her too?? What if after Ren returned to Canada without Haru chasing after him? Would he still feel inclined to love him? It's like Ren was forced to love him for the absurd reason of opening the kid up on one fateful summer. I just feel that Haru doesn't understand what he has done to the kid (who is a teenager now btw)

I dunno, maybe it's just me.... Then again, anyone remember Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike?? What if Kyomine never met Takara? Wouldn't he still be chasing Ayako?


Anyway, this manga has upset half its readers but still pleased the other half. I'm on the bridge with it because I don't like where their relationship is going but I'm still reading to see where these two will lead us.

Needs a big fat label warning: SHOTA!

Yes, the MC is a big fat pervert with an ephebophillic love for Ren. Characters in the story are also not reporting statutory rape as they should and his problematic comments have comedic uncomfortable reactions. One could argue that Ren consents and wants it, which is true, but one could also argue imprinting and that Ren never really knew anything else. I'm personally for the former, because we're taken through the story in a way you can obviously see how they fell for each other. Oh, and if anyone ever accuses any objection Ren ever had,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the reason that Ren said no those few times is because he was trying to desperately maintain a brotherly role to Haru because that's what he thought Haru wanted of him. Ren did this because he thought his love for Haru (romantic) and Haru's love for him were not the same. Which was obviously not true, but alas.

That Ren acts like an old man-child is no excuse, but it certainly is a huge reason I can read this. Ren is a very lovable character, and possibly the best kuudere I've ever seen in fiction. Haru is... well. He's trash, but I don't hate him. As much as I'd have liked him to hold out until Ren turned legal age--welp. I guess she didn't want to do the time skip. And also, as a Canadian, I'd really like to insist that people are not kissing monsters there.

If you're fine with reading a story that has that, everything else is literally amazing. The art, the characters, THE WRITING. Dear god. Like, their relationship is /profound/. How Ren so often manages to say things that just shake Haru's heart, especially. Hnngf. It's not just romance romance romance, either. There /is/ focus on sense of belonging, and relationships between the actual brothers, and between Haruka and Ren.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I was actually really glad she didn't go with the typical idealistic "oh your mother abandoned you because she had no choice" and instead went with it more realistically. Oh, and as a child that legitimately despises their mother, I can tell you right now it's 1000% possible to do so.


Basically, only read this if you're capable of separating reality and fiction (and really, young'ns of Ren's age that actually act like that just do not exist) and have no intention of letting this impact you in a way that'd lead you to harm minors. ...Unless you are a minor, in which case, I'm pretty sure depends as long as both consenting parties are of legal age? Not that you should be reading this at all, but I have no right to tell you off for it. (cough)

Like other comments are saying, the beginning of Super Lovers is REALLY promising! I loved the peaceful, idyllic ambiance of the first few chapters. But as I kept reading and Ren still looked SO YOUNG, I kept wishing that this was not a yaoi manga. If Super Lovers had ended up being only the first 5 chapters with an ending where Ren, thanks to the unconditional care by his big brother, opened up and had a new outlook on life - with NOTHING beyond a platonic relationship - I would've been pretty pleased. It would've been heartwarming and cute.

Buuuut instead, I kept getting more and more uncomfortable with the relationship between Ren and Haru until I dropped the manga after chapter 5. Even then, I still felt like I had read too much. Age gaps are fine, sometimes great - when the characters are older. Ren is just too young, and the dynamic between him and Haru just echoes pedophilic groomic a little too strongly. Haru's behavior towards like a 14 year old (and younger) boy just freaked me out too much. (And at one point, one of the characters rationalizes that after watching a 23 and 15 year old - QUOTE - "sucking face," it's not weird or alarming because they're "Canadian." Okay.)

BEAUTIFUL art and panel layouts as well as a very promising beginning - but the relationship between Ren and Haru just made me a little too uncomfortable.

There aren't many yaoi manga out there with a completely original plot. Super lovers is a typical yaoi story but I just love the art work and characters. Ren is adorable. People say this manga is overrated but that is the only word hipsters know. Super lovers isn't perfect. It has its flaws but it keeps me reading. If you like cute fluffy stories then you should read this one

Am I reading the same manga as some others do?? Shallow characters?? Really? I can totally relate to their feelings and I do think that there are visible character developments. This story really got me tearing up at many parts; it portrays the loneliness of both characters really well and their past explains why they rely on each other so much. And when did it get repetitive? Sure there are always some misunderstandings and then they make up, but that's life? Rather than typical manga cliches, I don't mind reading 100+ "repetitive" chapters if they are written well. But well, each to their own.
I totally enjoy reading it and it will always have a special place in my heart.

great story

I find this story very well done. It's not like other yaoi stories where the uke and seme just jump straight to sex, it actually takes it's time to develop the characters. I find the characters very unique. The art work is beautiful, as expected of Abe Miyuki sensei. this is not a shotacon or pedophile because Rin is still growing. the only problem i have with this is the slow updates. overall, i think it is one of the best yaoi/shounen ai story there is.

Like everyone else said, it started out quite promising. I started the first chapter years ago and it really made me believe this was going to be close to la masterpiece or something, so I saved it for later(I tend to do that for some reason)... but wow this was quite disappointing now that I've actually read it. Just combination of all the story flaws is really unfortunate, the story goes no where, the characters really need some more dimension to make the premise more relatable, but instead the reader gets alienated and is left to believe that this is simply pedophilia. Another problem is just
... the storytelling is not very engaging in my opinion. I have read much dumber stories without struggling to pay attention.... Its just very unfortunate because the situation and cast is pretty great, if only they could have been used to their potentisl.

Romanticizes Grooming Step-Brother Incest   
Rating: N/A

The relationship in this series makes me really uncomfortable. It's basically a how to guide on grooming, and the occasional side characters saying that their relationship is messed up doesn't change anything when the narrative continues to romanticize the leads' relationship. Plus, the graphic sex scenes with a minor make me especially uncomfortable. I will not be reading more of this manga. And the art being gorgeous isn't going to make up for everything that's wrong with this series.

Overrated

This manga is quite shallow. A very light read and not bad, but it's not good enough to have such high rating. It's normal and nothing special or unique really happens. I tried to read it until chapter 18 and I can't take it anymore. Very boring.

So bad...

I tried to read this twice already and I always gave up. I really don't understand how come this receives such great ratings. I would say the first 5 chapters are good enough, and the very beginning, while they're still in Canada, quite promising -- I love the rural ambiance. However, after a while the plot seems to drag nowhere, the characters are flawed in a very inartistic way, and the art quality decreases significantly. And I don't get the love everyone's talking about either. I accept the age gap, even though the kid looks way too small for his age, but the fact is both Haru and Ren were not developed at all. It's such a shallow relationship it becomes annoying and even disturbing after a while. And the rest of the cast is just as bad. They absolutely don't care about what's going on between the two, they are so benevolent it's annoying. Ugh, I can't even think straight anymore. It's just so bad, all of it.
