From DMP:
Tomonori Ozawa has just landed a job at a large publishing firm. The only catch is, he is the new editor of a Boy’s Love magazine?! On top of that, he is stuck with dealing with the artist Sakurako Kakyoin, a male yaoi artist who is notorious for missing his deadlines. To become a full fledged editor, Tomonori-kun has to start from the bottom – checking drafts, editing scripts and lettering. Now if only Kakyoin-sensei would stop sexually harassing him, he could actually get some work done!

It is funny, especially the conversations between Ozawa and the new guy about his manuscripts. I also greatly enjoyed seeing Ozawa as a cute bunny and the scene when Kakyoin's thing is an oni. Besides that there isn't much plot besides "I want to become a good editor" and "Ozawa, why aren't you secure in this relationship."

This was pretty meh. Random sex with nothing leading up to it and a completely weird response to it(IE: "it hurts!"....wait what? Some guy just randomly starts having sex with you with pretty much no warning or foreplay and that's all you have to say on the matter?). Was that imaginary? Does imagination hurt? I'm so was strange. Do not want. I was bored so I finished the two volumes, but I don't think it really got any better. The whole thing was sort of boring and abrupt. I can't really call this a rape-to-love because the uke doesn't even seem to care much about anything, and then suddenly he's in love for seemingly no reason because we see almost no scenes of the two together in a way which would warrant it.

Nothing too special about this comedy-yaoi. I didn't feel too much for any of the characters and it was a bit tiresome to read. It was decent; I will keep my copy and re-read and even lend out without embarrassment. It was just a tad clichéd with nothing to override the cliché factors in either the art or story.

At first, it's kinda boring with the arts kinda fuzzy and scribbles here and there. After finishing reading both volumes, it's quite good actually. recommended.

I thought volume 1 was hilarious and sexy - so MOE!! Kakyoin-sensei cleans up so well. XD I looked forward to volume 2 eagerly, but it was a let down. For me, it didn't have the magic of volume 1 that made me want to keep reading. In fact, I'm not very interested in volume 3 just because of it.

Review is for the first two volumes only. Oddly, despite really being a fan of the whole 'love at first site' sort of plot, I really liked this manga. The art style is just adorable, perhaps it's a weak spot on my part to bunny ears, or the x mouth, but I just couldn't hate on this one.

The story isn't exceptional, but it is really really cute. I loved looking at what the characters were wearing and what the series were on the doujinshi covers. It was a lot of fun over all. I'm looking forward to volume 3.

The previous review was sort of right if the word NO is never used? *shrugs* I consider that coercion. I did find this manga funny the hot springs (lol) I also love when the characters are turned into animals empathising a point.

I eagerly anticipate vol.2.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't really care for this manga. It's a comedy, but I don't find it funny. (Not just because of what follows this sentence.) The seme rapes and sexually harasses the uke (whom he has just met) because he needs writing material for his manga. This is all okay because he "loves" him. (love at first sight, of course) And guess what? The uke resists, but can't help but fall in love with him also! (wtf?) I've seen this plot ploy before, and unless I have forgotten, I have yet to see it well executed and believable.

Edit: In response to HellsbuTTerfly: What about the word "yes"? This was not consensual, because consent was never given.
