Description
Kaoru is a 17-year-old virgin who has an SM fetish. He secretly dreams about an SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana. One day Kaoru's mom asks Nana to hide all his SM toys so he'll study for a change. However, Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on, but she accidentally locks it and doesn't have the key! The beginning of super strange relationship.

Due to the popularity of Nana to Kaoru, the series resumes publication in Young Animal and chapter 22 is the final chapter in Young Animal Arashi. Publication of the series will continue in Young Animal, but renumbered as chapter 1 while maintaining the same name and storyline.

Ecchi with Character   
Rating: N/A

I am amazed how this series can take a sexual topic, keep the emphasis on the characters, and provide fanservice without getting vulgar. I know everyone has a different definition of vulgar, but this really rides that line between ecchi and vulgar without getting into 'sex'. Perhaps it's just me, but I can empathize with the confusion of the characters as they explore themselves.

Artwork is decent to good. Story is ok, with a couple flashing of brilliance. Characters are more complete than most works near this topic. I don't see the 10's that everyone is giving, but it's definitely a superior manga.

The "bestest" ever

This manga masterfully creates sexual tension without any real sex, nudity or even a kiss.

After 36 chapters it absolutely deserves a 10.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Especially since Tachi appeared. And in the recent chapters there seems to be a rivalry evolving between her and Nana.

I'm really curious which way will the story go. biggrin

Hot, Sexy, Perverted... I didn't think that a manga could be so enticing. I've read ALOT of H-manga and
have watched ALOT of porn. None have been as alluring and sensuous as Nana to Kaoru. The faces that Nana makes are so debauched that you can ejaculate by just looking at them, and Then Tachi comes along with the raunchiest look ever. I swear, I almost jizzed in my pants. This is a must read.

Too many tens, seriously guys, what's going on? Most of it is typical, what isn't typical showcases the worst of certain tendencies in this genre, and the hentai that usually comes from it. The guy looks extra pathetic, he isn't likeable one bit. The girl likes to be dominated secretly, and they like each other because they knew each other when they were young(cause that's how it works).

I don't like S&M but I'm not knocking it either. This is still meh, but with the added knowledge that it didn't start in a good relationship, with the disturbing hentai mind set.

the part people like most about this isn't the whole perverted things. yes it does add something good to keep the attention, but its the romance between the two that mostly keeps us interested. It certainly isn't your typical topic and from the accuracy of information to the beautiful artwork a lot of work was put into this and for me its my top manga

You know... I wouldn't exactly say that it's the sweetest or greatest Romance in the world, but it certainly is very interesting. When I started it, there were only 3 chapters, and I was hooked enough to want to know more. I found out they weren't going to translate it anymore, and I refused to accept that. NtK has a special place in my heart because I was the one that pushed it out there to be picked back up again. I really do love this series. Each chapter keeps me wanting more. The only thing I really hate about this series is... I have to wait a month at least for a new chapter. I get excited when I see a new one released.
The characters are a little more real world than in other romances. You have two kids that have been friends, but nothing more. They suffer too great a difference in looks and ability. Regardless of that, each of their seasons chips a little more of that wall away, and even makes the normally lazy Kaoru some motivation to self improve.
Ok... maybe it's not THAT realistic... but that's because most of us are lazy. Pft... self improvement... that stuff is for losers bigrazz

I finally decided to read this...

and I'm glad I did. People's opinions of the main character made me not want to read this at all, but after I started, I really liked it. Neither of the main character are sleazy, like other readers may say. Though both could be considered perverted, they are really just two growing teens learning about their own sexual limits and what love really is. If the BDSM were to be replaced with baseball or martial arts, the storyline really wouldn't be any different. Though sexual perversion seems to be the focal point of the manga, it's not. The real focus is on the developing relationship between the two main characters. That being written, I wouldn't recommend this for anyone under 16.

I think him being a short, sleazy pervert, is what make this manga so funny, gotta love the narrow eyes and the rounded face he makes when seducing nana, is just too hilarious XD.

I've read this for a while, and I got to say:
This manga would be so much more enjoyable if the protagonist was actually likeable instead of a short, sleazy pervert.
A normal guy with a bondage fetish would've been perfectly fine.
