Seriously, I can skip all the H parts   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

Yep, I'm one of those typical guys who read H's now and then. I know what I should expect from an H (apparently just... that kind of stuff, not the story).

Velvet Kiss is unexpected--in a good way.

Its story made me rub my eyes to see what kind of manga I was reading. It has a very good story. Its plot is better than quite many manga's nowadays, and miles better than most of its kind. Seriously speaking, you can cut off the H parts, I don't really care, though that is likely to be the actual main point of the series as a H. It contains drama, a good enough one, not a rough or one that is not well thought. The art is awesome as usual of the kind .

I would love to see Velvet Kiss rewritten as a non-H, with the same kind of art, and some more complicated points in the story. Pretty sure that will be popular.

I came across and thought it was going to be a pointless manga with just a lot of sex in it but I was wrong. It may have a lot of sex but there is a story going on in this manga which is what I love about it. Once reading it you just want more and more.

Average at best

I thought the manga was average at best - it was average until chapter 24 - where I lost respect for the manga and the MC. If a sequel is ever made I already know how it'll play out.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kano will face some hardships while being abroad - so she does what she does best - find the nearest orgy to attend.

Almost everyone in this manga is weird

This is exactly how I also felt - the only one I had sympathy for was Nitta - since I felt he was the "innocent one" in this story.
PS: I don't actually think it deserves 1 - since I've read worse stories than this - it's more like a 3. I'm just trying to make up for all the 10 votes out there. I don't understand how anyone can rate this above 4 - I've read stories 30 pages long with a better story than this pice of ****.

A truly amazing story with realistic characters. I felt really sad as the story came to a close because I really enjoyed reading it, but it's good the fact that the author ended it before she got clumsy with the story by adding random arcs.

The art.. it was spectacular. You can really tell how much detail and dedication went into the sketches in almost every page. From the clothing to facial expressions. A real work of art.

The ending.. it was suitable in a realistic sense. Not the "..and they lived happily ever after." crap that you might see.

The Velvet Kiss

This is the best manga so far that I've read from Harumi Chihiro nest is Come Come Vanilla. The Story is mainly about a finding and having a good relationship. The female lead is finding someone to care for her deeply while the male lead is a kind person and always gets dragged by the girl.

The art is defenitely Harumi-sensei style which is the best the female characters are so good looking and cute and the male characters too are good.

The story is good for a borderline Hentai manga even though there are many sex scene its just part of the development of their reletionship and the story. Even though you would expect a wishy washy story of a borderline-H manga the story is the one that shows its greatness, its like the Ecchi part is just an fan service.

I really liked it especially the final chapter which shows true love, and I can say that this is one great romance manga that i have read so far in this kind of genre!!

This manga did everything that is expected of a mature, romance, slice of life manga: I got incredibly attached to the characters and to the relationship that formed between them. That feeling that you get at the end of a series when you are sad to see it end is really the defining point of a good manga.

The manga is like in the deep end of being a hentai. Most manga's like these aren't really my type but it was pretty good. The art is good and it actually has a plot. The character development with the two protagonists is pretty good but I didn't really like that every single chapters has someone having sex. I thought that it wasn't really necessary but it's an adult manga so I let it slide.

The downside to this manga is that the plot doesn't seem fluid to me. When I say "fluid" I mean that the story has some chapters that wasn't necessary at all and there was some things that didn't make sense to me. I don't why the one girl at the beginning never shows up again and why didn't the main character confront her. The ending seem kind of rush and it wasn't the best ending I have read. The author could have thought about it more but at least it had an ending unlike other great manga/manhwa I have read that got cancelled with no ending.

Overall it's a pretty good manga but be warned that every chapter has some sort of sexual activity and nudity.

At first I thought this was just gonna be another pointless manga full of smut (well its a bit more than that for this one) so I was kind of hesitant to read it but man I'm glad I did! There's actually a good plot not to mention twists in the story and character development. I love how nothing was rushed and kept at a perfect pace, especially with the romance. Just one thing...

Didnt really like the ending! I mean he waited 3 years, finally gets a call from her then has to wait again because she wants to go abroad?! And all he says is "I'll be right here" I mean c'mon, the ending could've been way better!

How I felt when I read this

When this series first came out, I read the first eight chapters and stopped. Why? Well, one because only eight chapters were out at that time, so I read the most I could. But another reason was because I knew that this manga had SO MUCH potential and that it would KILL me if I had to wait until another chapter came out. So I waited it out.... until today. I read all 32 chapters in one go, and I say the wait was worth it.

I would elaborate on why it was worth it, but everybody else here has already spoken for me. This is a great manga series which delves deeper into the meaning of friendship, love, and a sense of duty.

There are lots of twists and turns in this manga, and there are also some rage moments too. That's the beauty of this; it made me FEEL. I sympathized with both the protagonist and the heroine, wanting what was best for them. Whether they got a happy ending or not is for you to read.

To those that are contemplating on whether this manga would truly live up to the hype it receives, I highly recommend reading this and judging for yourselves if it was well worth it. I hope that Harumi Chihiro - sensei becomes more well known, and start writing/drawing more wonderful manga series.
