Porn Star as Lover feels horrible to me

I get that he takes it seriously and all, but honestly your lover is having sex with multiple women on a daily basis.

It's not cheating, not even close, but it still leaves stomach pangs as though it is cheating.

It's gotta affect his sex drive too, realistically speaking.

I want to get over it, but I can't. At the very least, let it be that he only makes films with his lover from now on or something!

I personally don't like the art much (I know a lot of people love it but for some reason I just don't. It's definitely not the worst though) but I really enjoyed the plot! I wasn't too sure if I'd like this one 'cause I usually prefer the main couple to only sleep with each other (yes i'm kinda old fashioned that way), so with an AV actor as the seme I was a bit concerned. But i'm SO glad I read it XD
Kira is so cute and upfront about his feelings, and the way they address his career in the AV industry is done really well. My favourite character has got to be Natsumi (the girl) she's hilarious and it's nice to have a female character who isn't a love rival or whatever. I know in BL the guys should be the main focus but she was the highlight for me ^__^ haha.
This was definitely much more light-hearted than any of Ootsuki-sensei's other works, and although i'm not a fan of her art style, the sex scenes are still good and the story itself was great.
So don't let the description put you off, just read it and you won't be disappointed smile

Now that is what i call a pleasant surprise. I thought it would be more fluff, but it was actually REALLY good! They matched so well, and there was no "yaoi rape" or misunderstandings, just the right amount of slice of life?

I mean You're all like awww then like that's what goes on when your bf/lover is a porn star right haha. But it was really sweet. smile since the first time I read it I've read it about four other times. The story line is never old and super nice. I recommend it

First, WHY are the covers of this author's stories usually so hot? It's not fair, but it's lovely.

Second, how can this author do such BEAUTIFUL art? The emotions leap off the page! And sometimes it's just so great that I'm almost in disbelief. Like page 34, chapter 3, after Kira is let in on his crush's feelings. The art absolutely rocks. Normally I don't like really feminine drawings, but this is just too cool.

Also, I love the characters. Kira is kind of crazy, but it works on him, and he's such a sweet guy. I love how he is with Kazuaki (the main guy) - we need more semes like him!
And I even like the porn lady!
And Kazuaki is kind of adorable. He's unsure of himself, but he tries really hard to be a good guy, especially to Kira. I love that.

I have to say, im not a fan of the art style, overly thick long eyelashes and girly features are not something i appreciate in yaoi BUT i cant help but read this mangaka's works because the stories are almost always excellent - and, despite some of my art preferences i cant help but admit that some of the scenes are extremely well drawn. Anyway, this story is great. Its humorous and cute and very romantic, theres no angst, no huge drama moments, no betrayal of trust or forceful love - none of the usual crap you find in many yaoi, instead it takes on a more realistic tone and the characters give life to the story. Its a wonderful read, id recommend it.

Ootsuki Miu is suuch a good storyteller. Her art style is kind of love it or hate it, perhaps, but I love it and it's distinctly her. This is the good kind of fluff. It's very expressive and refreshing, not just shoujo with another man thrown in, in place of the girl(random flowers sprouting out of the background, etc. Bleh). She has a way of taking even strange stories and somehow making them extremely relatable and simple(in the good way). This was like that. Everyone was very likeable and it's very much a feel-good read. Sugary sweet without being saccharine or over-dramatic. I think this is probably not my favorite of sensei's works, but it's very good.

yaoi really teach me to accept a lot of things, now its 'porn star is an acceptable dream'. the couple is just too cute, gah! i love angsty twisted story, but the soft, wavering, innocent drawing really lure me in. something about the globular liquids just turn me on.
kira is just a perfect boyfriend and a perfect human being. n i love that the girl in here is not some whiny bitch thats a hindrance but a cute one that support them

because this is definitely not what i expected when i saw "porn star x salaryman". it is much better, and left me with a smile on my face. kira is totally not what i imagine a porn star to be like, *grin*; i want him as my friend. the story is basically a simple love story, and it's really nice to now and then read something where there's not big, angsty drama and all sorts of nasty obstacles. and while there is a blushing, crying uke who's much too feminine for my taste, he is not the annoying type who denies his feelings and protests any sexual contact; nope, he actually figures out what he is feeling and admits to it, and then enjoys himself once they get to the sex. which is graphic, btw. the two are really sweet together, and kira is even entertaining during sex.

the art is interesting; ootsuki definitely has her own style. i loved looking at kira; whose design is very expressive.

the scanlation is indeed superior to the commercial translation (you should buy the manga if you like it anyway; heck, buy the japanese version because it's prettier -- but do read the scanlation.)

For some reason, I can't explain my feelings on this one. I think it's one of my favorites, but then again, I don't like it that much to become one of my favorites. Ahh, I'm confusing myself. @_@ But anyway, I found this story to be really cute. I like the fact that both of them are really in love with each other, I mean, every couple in a love story are really in love, what I meant is that the manga-ka makes it very evident that that they really like each other (i.e. both of them blush, cry because of each other, etc.). Hmm, as of the art, it's obviously very appealing (I wouldn't have read it otherwise, haha). The way Ootsuki-sensei draws the male (and a little bit of the female) bodies look really nice. For some reason, some of the panels actually even look like they can stand-alone as an art piece, IMO. One last thing about the art, I REALLY like the way she draws the whole torso shirtless, ahh *~*. I also just wanted to mention that the girls (there was only one main one that stood out, but I think there was another one) aren't annoying and portrayed as a hindrance to the couple's relationship (she actually helps and cheers them on in a way). Lastly, the plot. Obviously, this is only a one-shot, so you won't really see much development. It's a cute quick read that gives you a warm fuzzy after you finished reading, haha. And it won't even take that much of your time, so I highly recommend this. (:
And ohhh, I didn't know that this has a translation! (credits to nowyat's review). I wrote too much...@_@
Excuse me while I go and order the English cover of this~
