It's like a variety show, with emphasis on variety.
Ijimetaihodo Aishiteru: The childish Takahashi fancies himself to be a bully. Mom-like Haruki sees right through him & doesn't take him seriously. They have quietly developed a mutual crush on eachother, & when Takahashi sacrifices his health to save Haruki from a fall, the sexual tension between them grows & Haruki finally decides to indulge Takahashi's whimsy. -------------------------------- The Fox's Wedding: Touru plans to marry the PR manager's daughter for a set life & to get over his gay crush on his boss, but his engagement is cut short when he's reminded of his childhood vow to marry a beauty from the Fox Clan. This story may be connected to another Mizukami manga called Kudan no Kuroneko. -------------------------------- Foreign Culture Communication: An emassary from the west becomes smitten with a naive Japanese youth interested in learning about western culture. Seems to be inspired by "Sign of a World's Love" chapter from an older Shin Mizukami manga; Hagakure no Koi. Going by the fashion, it's early 19th century. -------------------------------- Little Lost Lamb: It's a lot like a couple doing fantasy roleplay in priest/nun lingerie; an exhibitionist student meets a voyeuristic priest in the confessional every day after school. The taboo element makes it extra sexy while the sacrilege adds humor; never again will you hear "allow god to enter" without chuckling. The story also serves as an exquisite FU to various religions' intolerance of homosexuals, masturbation-shaming, & lust-shaming.
Shin Mizukami is a costume fetishist & her stories are always based around excuses to draw sexy uniforms. Her knowledge of catholicism is pretty much nonexistent, & it's a comedy, but some uppity people have a problem taking this chapter with a grain of salt. If you can't handle this chapter, don't even bother with her military themed mangas. -------------------------------- Educational Affection: Another story about sexual confessions, this time a student recounting the abuse of his older step brother to two teachers concerned for his health. Mizukami's uke's are notoriously manipulative & horny, so I saw the plot twist coming a mile away. Plus the 3ed guy in a Mizukami threesome is always a matchmaker. I can only assume this story gets flack because she's probably got 1 short story in every multi-story oneshot manga that ends the same way.
Responses to previous commentors. 1) DON'T skip the last chapter; there's nothing wrong with it. 2) I'm probably older than Yankee-chan & it suited my tastes just fine.

Not my cup of tea.
Aside from the character design, that came up with overly cute characters, that had for my taste too many feminine aspects, the western-historical just put me off. It's a personal thing, so if you are okay with that, then the drawing style can probably be likeable. However -
The stories haven't been much better. The first one was okay, but the others just somehow have been over the top and unrealistic. As a mature reader there isn't much to say about them, aside from the feel, that the overly phyisical scenes and stereotyped smut scenes are probably to feed the taste of a younger audience. Maybe ... Lol.
It was good! Specially chapter 3 XD
Chapter 4 made no sense XD Either the mangaka knows nothing about the Catholic Church or she has a weird sense of humor. The priest dad? and the nun mom? go out and leave their son? behind to take confessions?? XD What is that church? Like a bakery or something? Leaving their son taking care of the register? It was so unrealistic I just couldn't stop laughing all trough the chapter XD It's not the first story from her that's weird in many ways, but maybe a less unreal scenario would have worked better on this chapter. She really doesn't like Christianity 8X So anyone that has a problem or could feel offended by this type of subject should skip chapter 4.

SKIP the LAST story
over all this one is also a good read, as expected from mizukami sensei there is comedy, romance , and tears. very tasty indeed although they're just short manga but its still worth reading. but the last story is not that good, i don't even bother to read it twice i can't seem to find the excitement from the last story, its like its lacking something....
Some of this is really good, some just not...
I really like Mizukami Shin, she has original stories and he humor and smut at their best are some of her strong points too. The art is great as well and that goes for this book too. Plot-wise I liked the first three stories.The uke in the first one was delightful! It's nice to see something a bit different for a change... And the third story was so funny and really just heart-warming.. Commodore "Just call me Darling" - Priceless! The rest, however, I had some issues with. The catholic church is nothing like it is portrayed here and, though I'm not a very religious person myself, I found this religion sex fantasy cheap and lame. The last story was also kinda awful. I just found the characters not at all sympathetic. It wasn't all bad but just left like a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. The first three were so great though that this still earns 9 points from me.

Mizukami-sensei is amazing as always!
I literally read ever manga by Mizukami-Sensei at least 10 times.Mizukami-Sensei's work is always amazing and her style is really beautiful. She is one my favorite sensei list for sure.
This manga is pretty ok and i really liked Foreign Culture Communication but Little Lost Lamb made me feel uneasy. I'm not a very religious person but using some kind of holy figurine as a vibrator was a little to much i think O.o
i dunno what the first commenter was smoking when he/she read it, but the uke's making a LOT of expressions......*cough*.....so, i thought it was really cute =3~ and of course, it's Mizukami sensei, so you can expect some smex and beautiful drawings mixed in one =3~!!
RAH RAH! Three Cheers for Misukami-Sensei!
Small note: All four chapters listed here are scanlated by LP, but it is listed as 'ongoing' on their (easy-to-navigate!) website.
Chapter 1: Too funny. Not only can Mizukami-sensei write deep psychological dark stories, but she can write funny present-day ones as well. I love the scene where Takashi feels that the only time he has truly bullied Haruki is when he makes him wear panties. HA! Who really is the uke in this story? Poor stupid Takashi. God love 'em. And the spunk in Huaruki! Funny stuff.
Chapter 2: I liked the whole legend about the fox spirit getting married, but the story was kinda lame. The artwork was intriguing. I liked how the artist made the fox spirit so beautiful in his adrogeny.
Chapter 3: Ha! I laughed at this one as well. Great for a good smile. There are hot scenes as well. BOnus! I must say, if interpretor classes were like this, I'd be signing up pretty damn fast! I love the whole 'honey' and 'darling' joke. And the look on the parent's and sister's face in the very last frame! *Humongous smile on my face whilst I chuckle once again.*
Chapter 4: He knew?! Manipulative little lamb! God. That was hot. I love seeing blasphemous acts with the cross and statues of the church. The whole 'sin' thing is hot. Definitely a 'porn' yaoi title with enough plot to make me love it! FUN!
