Okay, i have been reading this series ever since i found it here in MU and i dont know why i never ended up commenting on it even though this is on my top 10 list of closely followed shoujo manga. But now that it has ended, i couldnt help but drop a comment on it. Some parts maybe considered spoiler so.. i am using spoiler tag-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At first i was like, "WHaaaaaaaaaaat? thats it?" i mean cuh mon... he could have aleast confessed properly.i mean he cant be shy with some one he slept with like a million times already.,..but then i realised after a while that thats the beauty of the story... this has elevated smut genre to such a level.. matyre and beautiful not vulgar at all. So much was said without him confessing..and he said he will that means they have future would have been too unrealistic if things were not sorted out and their equations specially. They both needed to sort themselves out..and by god , Nitta looked damn hot in the last chapter..more than ever! And grown up Kano chan is really beautiful.. this is hands down the best smut manga i ever read, and one of top 5 shoujo(short) that i read.

I would have given it full 10 points, if not for the vague ending.

Started following this series since I've finish the other series, Koi wo Suru no ga Shigoto desu. Concept is great and the drawing is really nice. Story is pretty good too. The mangaka never really put any elements of cheating/betrayal in that series which I enjoy reading. Not really big fan of cheaters, it pisses me off. Even though it's known that Kano has many orgys way before Nitta came along, it was nice to know she threw it away until the end of volume three. I'm a supporter of Nitta since he's the one that seems to be thrown left and right being played. Kano seems to play around with him and if you have read end of volume 3, you quickly see that everything that was built up, blew up and shattered and quickly you see Kano back to her old ways without realizing what she been doing. So I'm hoping it ends volume 4 and knowing this mangaka, it should be a good ending like Koi wo Suru no ga Shigoto desu, or atleast I hope so. I'll keep reading, but the chapter 24 kinda pissed me off that when Kano quickly went back to the orgys. Not really a big of reading about her getting done in by 3 guys. I felt Nitta got betrayed! Wasn't expecting it since Harumi Chihiro hasn't done this in any other the other series I read by her.

Updating since the series ended.
I've greatly enjoyed this series and ending was great. Volume 4 was a great read and definitely cleared everything I was worried about in this series.

I think it is suppose to go like more Kanoko spends time with Nitta more she shuns away her orgy life eventually leading to her living normally and falling in love with Nitta. Nitta on the other hand is facing the harsh realities of life including his so called girlfriend using him just for her sexual pleasure.

Honestly, I don't know what the story in this manga is (not sure if there was one or I just don't remember it). I really am starting to lose interest, it's pretty much the same thing chapter after chapter. Personally, I think it's kinda pointless.

sex and then more sex, cheating, affairs, orgies, no common sense, "drama"...all without any really obvious story or plot points (is this perhaps a slice of life?)

I think that i am too pissed to give an objective rating to this series so i am just going to post a few sentences about my thoughts on manga i am running in to lately.

Whats the point of this manga? Whats wrong with this story?
Unless you are a horny teen i dont see how the hell would you give high rating to this, and i am not one of those ppl who goes and finds stuff to troll about that so on, usually if i dont like some manga i read i just think ok i dont like it, its crap. Ofc its my opinion , its not like everything is for everyone and not everyone will enjoy the same story as others.
And i don`t post wall's of txt hating on something, its just that i am disappointed. Lately i cant find anything interesting to read in "mangaworld" anymore. I don`t think that i found a manga in last 6 months that had a story i could remember after 1 hour after i finished reading the scaned chapter's.

Anyway back to topic, maybe its cause i checked Moto to love ruu darkness before this that i am just sick of stories that focus on getting the reader's horny than actually making an enjoyable read.

Its all about sex, i mean wtf are the authors trying to get with this? Don`t get me wrong i have no problem`s if there`s even insane amount of violence or sex in manga actually IF it make`s sense or improves the story i don`t mind it at all, tbh i wish that some of the manga's i read had more(for instance Vagabond, omfg if Takezo would just get to it with his village childhood "friend", soz i forgot the name of that girl).

But sex shouldn't be the story, i don`t see the difference between this and some censored porn.
Every manga should have a good solid story that the author wants to tell us, i always thought that that`s the point.

Unless ppl are rating how many boners they got while reading i just don't get how can this have a 8.something rating. Cause lets be honest this work is just WANNABE porn.

Oh i read a comment like" this manga explores human loneliness and the meaning of friends", yeah right......... sure it does...... as much as NRT hentai.

OH and the story in this manga, lets just say action > words and that everything said in this manga just cant be. The main lead is some kinda of ice breaker by the words of the mother, and his friend described him as someone who's mind is hard to change. If you think about it the main lead is no different from a call girl, hes basically a manwhore. And hes the one who`s role is to uphold some kind of moral in this story? not actually sure what he is up to tbh :<.

Despite all the sex and smut, it actually is really good ( or atleast has the potential to be). the relationship that the main character and the girl have is quite interesting embarrassed
I can't wait to read more biggrinDD But it could ease up on the sex scenes....

Yes, it does have a lot of sex scenes and probably some could be avoided, but I really like the main characters, they're not the usual useless male and soft female lead. Both of them have a unique character and the story is keeping me interested so far. Also hope for some development from now on but anyways a good read.

So far "Velvet Kiss" has been interesting. The relationship between the two main leads - typical salary-man gets together with an atypical tsundere girl - is really intriguing. My only complaint is that there is too many sex scenes. Don't get me wrong, they spice up the manga as they are all beautifully drawn but some chapters could very well do without them. In my opinion, more focus on developing the story would clearly benefit the manga. However, seeing as "Velvet Kiss" is serialized in an adult magazine, one would guess that there won't be any changes soon in that department.

As AMetroid points out and as should be expected from Harumi Chihiro, the manga spends a lot of time on sex scenes, that, although inexplicit, don't leave overly much to the imagination. Spending more time on the story would be welcome. Nevertheless the story comes through reasonably well, more than well enough for a light entertainment.

The art is well drawn: not only neat and easy to follow but also just generally pleasant to admire. I also agree with Darknemo, the characters are well made, the salary man hero as well as our not-so-typical tsundere heroine.

Further to that, the plot (as far as the 9th chapter) is intriguing and has a mix of slice-of-life, slowly developing romance between the hero and heroine, hints at their pasts and a bit of foreshadowing for suspense. The exploration of love, friendship, sex and money is far from brilliantly unique so dont expect this to manga to change your world philosophy but it is very well executed and has its touching moments.

All in all, a very good read. Recommended.

Tsundere heroine   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
by Darknemo2000

It is a good story. Main heroine is a tsundere, but not your usual tsundere type but the classical (oldfashioned) tsundere of the 80's. Starts aloof but progresses to dere eventually. Those who vote the tsundere tag down obviously dont know much about tsundere and just hang on Type A tsundere definition which is incorrect.

Its a good story of finding a relationship, but it gets complicated and more exciting than simple love story. Explores human loneliness and the meaning of friends. Sex scenes are often but doesnt really make the story less good in most cases.

A deep story, complicated characters and hot tsundere (albeit not Type A) main heroine. This is a formula to a successful manga.

Edit. After ch 24 I have to down a rating a little. Kano did not betray Nitta as there was no relationship but she did betray the reader since the whole progression of her character went out of the window with that chapter. Not to mention a really poorly done ending. Still good manga, but not great.
