Micah, a cut throat American businessman, is intent on taking over a floundering Japanese hotel chain and whipping it into shape. All that currently stands in his way is its clumsy yet endearing president, Yuki. Will this hostile takeover end up being a vehicle for love?

Note: Not to be confused with the Koi no Shoshinsha Mark manga (also done by the same mangaka), L'Étoile Solitaire is a JOEL (Japanese Original English Language) manga: OEL manga by Japanese artists. It is available in Japan via cellular phone download but not in printed form.

a cute oneshot

This manga was cute and a good light read. Anyone who has read a lot of these oneshots comes to expect that from them. You just can't flesh out a story well in one volume. That would be like trying to turn a 300 page novel into a 30 page short story. How much would you have to leave out? The characters aren't fleshed out as much as they could be, but they are fleshed out enough for this particular story. Let's face it, it is a oneshot yaoi, people aren't reading it for the life stories of the characters. I did like the Micah character, and he was portrayed well enough. Yuki was a bit wimpier than I like to see, but that's ok. It is a matter of taste. The end was a little rushed, but that is common with oneshots. The mangaka was probably limited to a certain number of pages. Still, it got the point across. There were really no loose ends. You weren't left wondering what happened to Alex - like you often are with minor characters in these oneshots. The artwork was decent, far better than some others I've read. It wasn't perfect, but that's ok. For those who like a simple, cute story this one is a good one to read. If you are into more complex, convoluted stories, you might not like it - you should stick with multi-volume series and avoid oneshots. I, personally, thought this was a good late night read.

Potential is There, But Needs More Experience to Capture Her Unique Artistry

I would definitely class this manga as a 'sweet, light romance,' but lacking the grounding exploration of humanity element that a more mature story teller could have subtly infused and woven in. The story line and the characters themselves, were immature in development. Although easy to follow and cognitive, it was rushed, extremely minimized and basic. Even the title tie-in, the bar/cafe where our boys meet, is under developed and glossed over.

Technically, the art felt awkward and un-aged in facial expressions and choices of layout, losing much in the way of making a solid, lasting effect me. More importantly, though, the art was similar in vein to the writing, indeed the levels matched harmoniously as far as stages in a creator's development. If the art ability and the story weaving ability progress from juvenile to mature together, I think Ogami-sensei could go far. I mean this in no derogatory or arrogant way; it was a pleasant read, absolutely, but I felt rather like a junior high school teacher, grading the work of my student, one who held much potential, but not ready for the world of published, professional works of unique talent.
