From Deux:
Five short stories which take place in the artistic worlds of dance, painting and music, the overall theme being a dichotomy of hope and despair as well as passion and anguish. In the title story, devastated by the death of his world famous dancer mother, Theo Galland abandons his own dancing career to become a Hollywood actor and meets the famous Hollywood actor Daren Ferguson. What should have been a joking kiss shared between them takes a sudden turn, however, when Daren asks “So what comes next?” Theo answers “That depends on the scenario.” As lustful passions boil over, will Theo be able to regain the fire that he once possessed and return to the dancing world?

Story1: Ch1-2 Curtain Call / Seduce Me After The Show

This is a good collection of short stories ranging from all themes and backgrounds. Each and every one of the stories has their own unique personalities and I truly enjoyed them whole-heartedly from beginning to end. The pacing, panelling, characters designs, development, everything just perfectly fits in its rightful place, so much so that I'm having really a hard time trying to find any flaw at all in the whole manga.

BEST manga ever

for me, her best manga. I read Orokamono wa Aka wo Kirau (red blinds the foolish), which is said to be her best work, but i still prefer seduce me after the show. i tell you this the best quality manga you could find around, and i'm said to be very picky !
seduce me after the show is a gem. the stories are very mature, with few words, but a big load of emotional strain. after reading it you can't help but feel sad and hopeful at the same time. this manga is really about what life is really like.
Besides there are stories with an italian setting, (and a hot spanish mixed race character !! ), and i love homosexual love stories that take place either in italy or in spain.
i loved the last story it was so heart rending ! and i found it well translated. in many mangas the kyoto accent is reproduced using stuff like "yeh" instead of "you" or "e" instead of "he".

to conclude i'd say that seduce me after the show is a must read !

I loved this book. I agreed that the translation of the last story sounded unnatural and I personally had prefer regular english and not the strange "dialect effect" that the translator tried. My fav story is the first one about a ballet dancer and an actor but I enjoyed the other stories as well. What I most liked is the fact that the stories are mature and not the conventional "uke-seme" yaoi. The art is exquisite and different, maybe looks strange at first but is definitely a great complement to the stories.

Josei it is.

I agree with Voraciouszest's comment. This is a perfect blend of josei and BL. Each of the 6 short stories is a snapshot of a moment in a relationship between two people. Readers will either love it, or they simply won't "get" the stories at all!

The translation by self confessed fan, Matt Thorn, for Deux (Aurora Publishing) is excellent, although possibly somewhat heavy handed with the pseudo "dialect" in the last story. If these stories were prose, they would win awards for literary writing. As they are - you get the bonus of the mangaka's distinctive artwork to go complement these lovely stories. Highly recommended.

Poetic and Angsty   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

Seduce Me After the Show is of a different standard than most yaoi titles. The stories are poetic and angsty. They portray a different and more realistic view of homosexuality for men of this era. The stories range from a dancer and his Hollywood lover to a man in search of the lover he hasn't seen for forty years.
Be aware, though, that the stories tend to end right in the middle or have no real conclusion. The art is unique, but a little heavy.
