What is Aki-Sora?

The first four chapters are actually pretty good. Maybe a shade on the porn side, but we see an actual plot begin to develop.

Right off the bat, we're given the back story of our hero, an effeminate, timid boy who is dotted on by the heroine, his sister, to whom he has a clear and obvious complex over. We're also introduced to Sora's fraternal twin, Nami, who doesn't appear to be particularly fond of her brother, but also doesn't seem to hate him. More importantly, she looks to be a completely normal, "incest is wrong" twin sister. Nami's friend, Kana, is your stereotypical bespectacled shy girl with a crush on our hero.

Great! And at this point, I may have to warn of spoilers, as there may be a few below, but looking though the other comments, it's practically "It was his sled" territory by now and I'm not reveling anything critical outside of chapter 4. If anyone cares enough, I'll throw a giant spoiler box over it, but really, there is no plot to spoil in Aki-Sora, since there is no plot... Actually, on second thought, I'll put in a spoiler box anyway. I don't wanna be "that guy", however I insist not much is spoiled.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ahhh, chapter one. Aki and Sora do the mattress dance, and you think: "Alright, cool. Looks like we'll be skipping the usual 20 chapters of 'But we can't!' and get right into the action and drama that will come when facing the taboo of two blood related siblings attempting a sexual relationship."

Excellent!

Chapter two comes out and we get a nice glimpse into the mind of Nami as well as a healthy dose of yuri. And you think: "Ohhh, I see, I see. Nami's somewhat harsh attitude towards her twin is because she loves her friend who has a crush on her brother. Hmmmm... a complex formed through jealousy over something Sora has no control over: his gender. An "as long as my beloved is happy" plot with twinges of regret and envy. Can't wait to explore that."

What could go wrong?

And so, chapter three rolls around, and it gives us some porn disguised by a cute back story with sprinklings of Sora doubting the line he's already crossed. As you remember how slender Sora's naked hips were while he was crushing his sister's internal organs, you briefly wonder why the author adds thirty pounds to his waste-line when he's wearing clothing.

Wincest is best!

Then 4.0 happens. Here, we're met with some ho who gets her rocks off exposing herself in public venues. Well... this might be interesting. And it is! But our hapless hero is swept up in infidelic sexual acts!

Oh no! How will he ever face his beloved Aki again!?

4.5's answer? IGNORE THAT IT HAPPENED ENTIRELY!! YEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAW SORA!! ROCK YOUR SISTERS BOX, DUDE!!!!!!! TROLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wait, what? H-he didn't even have a TWINGE of guilt!? Nothing!? W-well, maybe that was just a side chapter. I bet in the next REAL chapter he seriously contemplates the guilt he certainly must feel over his actions in chapter 4.0.

Surely.

Chapter five.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOPE!!!!!!!! MINDS AS CLEAR AS THE SUNNY SKIES!!!!! EXCUSE ME WHILE I FILL MY SISTER AND THIS HOT SPRING WITH A BUCKET FULL OF MY HIGHLY IMPROBABLE AMOUNT OF NUT BUTTER!!!!! TROLOLOLOLOLOL!!!


Wait! Wait! Wait! Timeout! Did 4.0 even happen!? Was that some kind of alternate reality? Am I to believe that's not considered cheating in Japan? Or am I to believe that the cute and effeminate, sister-complex shota-boy with broader hips than his female twin, doesn't understand the concept of fidelity? Chapter five didn't have the answer I was looking for. M-maybe chapter six will get us back on track.

Yes! Onward to chapter six!

Chapter six.

FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL, HERO!? ARE YOU A FUCKING BLOW UP DOLL!? GET UP MAN! GET UP! Oh good, he came to his senses. Now all he has to do is get the hell outta... HUH!? WAIT! BRIAN ... I mean.. SORA, NOOOOOOO!!!

Seriously, I couldn't give a damn what the ho is doing, who she is doing it with, how many STD's were involved in the making of this chapter and how many visits to the Maury show she'll have to make in order to find her "baby daddy". Don't care. What she does is her business.

And this may sound odd, but I don't really care that Sora heads down the path laden with barbs. Actually, you're almost to expect it. This is supposedly a story about an incestuous relationship after all, and it's a common plot point to portray one of the characters as unsure or uncommitted to his/her taboo choice, ultimately leading to mistakes that can't be undone without dealing with the major ramifications of his/her grand self destruction.

But that's the problem. He cheats, and cheats, and cheats and is never faced with any kind of regret or guilt toward betraying the supposed object of his affection, nor any real self-reflection regarding the taboo relationship they share. Aki becomes just another girl with an impressive axe-wound between her legs and Sora's got an axe to grind. And grind. And grind.

We look to chapter seven expecting to see a mind-screwed Sora who'll never be able to look Aki in the eye again, but we don't see that. He doesn't think twice about it. In fact, he gets a titty-fuck. *faceplam* This is the point where I know for certain that I've been trolled. I went to ITOSUGI Masahiro's profile page fully expecting an enormous picture of trollface as the author avatar. The brief bio simply containing the words "u mad?".

What's the point of even writing a story of this nature when the protagonist has virtually no mental or physical consequence for any of his actions? Chapter 8? Please. He's just doing his favorite blow-up doll impression... again. Later he says he was scared of her. Frightened people don't get erections and even in the event that he did get it up, you can tug and tug and tug on that little guy but he'll never cum a fucking bucket. Sorry, folks! The human penis doesn't work that way! Sure, you could use the stalwart, grade-school defense of "this is manga", but when you attempt to weave a story with "drama" and sex, I at least expect a certain level of realism (5-gallon cumshots notwithstanding). He liked it. The end.

Without a valid plot, Aki-Sora looses all it's thrill or credibility. In the beginning there's a thrill because you wonder if they'll be caught and what problems will occur when they finally do get busted. But later, rampant cheating aside, the Aki X Sora scenes will put you to sleep and it's mostly because she loses credibility as his sister. If they don't think about the moral boundaries they're crossing as they copulate like endorphin induced rabbits, then she becomes his sister on paper. It's like watching a porn movie titled "Taboo Bro&Sis Incest! Vol. 37198" starring the blackest dude you've ever seen in your life and the palest redhead in the history of the universe. NOT BUYING IT.

To which you may say "So what? If the author says they're siblings then they are!" Incorrect. It's the burden of the author to sell the idea that these two are, in fact, siblings. She portrayed that quite nicely in the beginning, but failed to maintain the status quo throughout the story. If you want an example of a work that sells the idea that 'x' and 'y' are full blood siblings completely, go read or watch Koi Kaze. Basically, any story that revolves around incest needs at LEAST one person who thinks it's disgusting and wrong and has brains enough read between the lines. Or like I said before, an unsure partner with a conscience. Or both. If you have NEITHER, then what's the point? Why even bother with "incest" if you're not going to explore the taboo?

Where are you my shining moral compass character? Nowhere.

I mean, he's banging his "sister". So what? By now, if someone were to walk in on them while they're busy SCREAMING the play by play action to their "incestuous" hump-a-thon, rather than being disgusted at the sight and sounds, they'll probably just ask to join in.

Thanks, Aki-Sora. You've just cheapened the thrill of incest. And cheating.

It's like the author thought "Hmmm... how can I spice things up for Aki and Sora? I got it! Public places!" But that plan backfires when you realize it's actually MORE dangerous for them to be doing it at HOME, thus making happy time with Aki infinitely lamer. I suppose using the magic of manga they could run into someone, but the person who interrupts the meat slapping session you're having with your sister at HOME has a damn near 100% chance of knowing who you are. Isn't that the REAL thrill of incest? Besides, aren't public adventures what the ho from chapter four is for?

Case and point. Which has more shock value? The scene at the beginning of chapter three or chapter ten?

It almost feels like I'm reading a weird, disjointed visual novel since the chapters seem to have no flow or sense of continually. Sora appears to suffer from selective plot amnesia while Aki outright disappears when it's not her turn to hide the salami. This makes it seem like I'm reading two separate routes that exist in parallel universes, never to cross... like a visual novel. Well, THREE separate routes if you include the ho in chapter four.

Wanna hop on the Nami/Kana route? Skip the first chapter and read chapter two. Skip 3, 4, 5, and 6. Read 7 and 8 then skip alllll the way to 15, 16, 17, 21, and 22. Chapter 24 is the branch point where you choose between Nami, Kana, both or neither. For giggles, you can throw in chapter 12 and 18 at random points, but treat Alice and that little ass-gnome Miharu as a cross-dressing leprechaun that only appears when Sora is day-dreaming during homeroom. Seriously, it makes more sense this way.

This would be better off if the author simply skipped the incest or any build up of a plot from the get-go since clearly it never intended to have any kind of focus or deal with it in any way. Aki is merely treated like any other bimbo he sticks his grubby little cock into, living in blissful ignorance while waiting for her brothers next bucket full of lovin'. You might be able to enjoy this title for the porn, but the male lead is an annoying shota boy with no redeeming physical or social traits whatsoever. "Ah. Oh, no! Stop! Please don't! I'm gonna...!" Bitch, please. That shit loses it's believability after 30+ sexual encounters. Stop it.

Anyway, read it if you like, but don't you DARE think for a moment it has a plot or give a damn about the characters. Read it with a grain of salt. It's porn. In fact, it's an insult to porn writers. I've seen better porn scenarios that chronicle the trials of a lone pizza boy's successful infiltration into a cougar's den and his masterful delivery of "extra sausage". Way better. You'll also notice I avoided the whole "OMG DIS ISN'T HENTAI!!" debate by calling it porn. You're right, it's not "hentai". But it is porn. Disagree? GREAT! Now, go show it to your mother. She'll be thrilled.

Fact: If you read Aki-Sora as anything other than laughable porn, the Gods of whining might compel you to write a 'way-to-damn-long' rant that I can't recommend you read even if doing so would solve world hunger.

So then to answer the question I asked... what is Aki-Sora? Nothing. Trash at best. I'm not even gonna rate it because I can't give it a zero.

But I found the story to be pretty tiresome. I like hentai and I like incest. Straight up. It's fun because I don't look for anything serious in manga. But I do like a plot as well, and if you're going to pretend to have a plot, then... have one.

This is HORRIBLY harem to the point of annoyance. I don't like the way most of the bodies are drawn, Sora, especially. He looks like a woman with wide, round hips and his passive, spineless personality was a turn off. I didn't care for the do-si-do with the "partners", the cross-dressing, and there was just something awful about that
Spoiler (highlight to view)
first orgy party where that girl lost her virginity. I guess I was looking for her to lose it with Sora, but when it just became something squick-worthy, I knew it was time to bail.
The entire scene left an icky, empty feeling behind that I didn't enjoy at all.

So, I stopped reading after that. I did see the OVA, and as usual, it was out of sequence with the manga, but accurate in the feeling it left behind...

The "standard lightsaber censoring" is NOT used in hentai. It is used for smut, yaoi, and adult rated works. Hentai will have a very detailed penis, with skin and everything, and perhaps a tiny bar near the glans. It's typically almost "where's waldo?" censoring.

That's probably why it's rated as adult instead of hentai as well.

I have actually read some hentai stories with less sex than this series. The genres by which this series is classified are highly misleading. I've read there first seven chapters, so it's not as if I haven't given it a decent shot to prove me wrong. These are not "suggestive" in the least, it's straight up porn with the standard light saber censoring still present in a lot of hentai stories.

The story its interesting but I honestly don't understand why people insist on not classifying this with there genre it clearly goes out of its way to fit.

There are vivid graphic depictions of sexual acts as well as seminal/vaginal fluids.

The plot so far is mostly moved forward by trying to figure out which other character will have sex with the protagonist and which fetish she will incorporate in her scene(s).

As plenty of reviews have stated, it's not that I have a problem with it being porn; it's that the description is misleading.

review score affected by expectations set forth in gene description.

This manga is hentai. What's wrong with that? And who said that hentai can't have plot, drama, or character development?
Having said that, the other genre that needs to be added to this manga is Harem. Very, very much so; so very much so. On the other hand, there seems to be little Comedy to be found here, and lots of Drama. What I'm saying is, the genres over there could use some fixin'.
As for the quality of the story... meh. Whenever it actually focuses on the main characters and their interesting relationships (Aki, Sora, Nami and even Kana), it's ok, but all too often it gets sidetracked into an orgy or a threesome or exhibitionism with random side-characters, and then it's all about the sex and nothing more. Which, again, is alright and par for the course of a hentai manga like this; and yet, it diminishes the emotional impact the "plot" part of the story could otherwise achieve.

read a damn hentai. the sole purpose of hentai is to get you aroused and to bust a nut. ecchi is th between space of not showing off body figures, and being the soul purpose of getting off. if anything borderline h is THE BEST tag this can get because they have sex. and so you know, softcore porn is technically pictures of people in erotic poses fully clothed, to being nude. and you know that you cant call it porn of any kind without a single tit. if you want to equate this to soft core porn this would be like sports illustrated swimsuit edition.

Ok, a lot of shit is happening in this manga at the same time... but one thing is SUPER clear

The Plot is super lame and has little appeal, the art is ok, but I dislike the body shapes... in short is only the sex that keeps this manga moving, if this Hentai develops a Seinen/Mature level plot, then I will read it, otherwise, I stop at chapter 7

I downloaded this manga looking for a regular ecchi, harem manga about forbidden feelings. I wasn't expecting all the sex (especially with people other than his sister). When something is labeled "ecchi", I don't expect to see the actual sex act, censored or otherwise. If there is any sex, it's all implied. For example, the protagonists might kiss passionately on the bed, then you see them in bed looking at each other while doing it or after; or you might see their reactions during or after, but you don't actually see them "connected" or the actual sex act in progress with as much detail as you see in this manga. At least, I haven't in the other ecchi harem manga I've read, whether they were about incest or not.

While I'll admit this isn't the kind of hard-core stuff that most hentai is nowadays, it's still hentai. In the porn industry, this would be called "soft porn". But soft porn is still pornography no matter how you look at it! Aki Sora is designed to arouse its audience the same way as any hentai out there is. So, let's be honest and stop changing the genre back to ecchi. A pervert is still a pervert even if he/she only steals underwear or looks at dirty magazines, just like hentai is still hentai, even if it's just soft hentai like Aki Sora. Even tagging it "borderline H" does not make it okay for the genre to be ecchi instead of hentai. I don't want any more people to experience what I did when all I was looking for was ecchi stuff (since when did ecchi mean "sex as long as censor out the genitalia and nothing else"?).

I have to agree with someoney3000 on the fact that this is SEX. Yeah, they don't show they genitalia but they do show the ACT OF SEX for 90% of the chapters. You don't just see 1-3 panels but you see PAGES of SEX (most of the chapters are sex). This is HENTAI through and through. It's pretty much just like the censors in Japan. You can't see their junk. If someone can prove that this is not porn WITHOUT the fact that you can't see their junk then go ahead and try but this series needs to be labeled Hentai.
