Haru visits Canada to spend the summer holidays in the woodland house of his strict, strong-willed mother, Haruko. There, she burdens him with the responsibility of caring for his younger adoptive brother - a wild and unruly little boy named Ren who trusts no-one and prefers to wander in the woods with Haruko's dogs rather than associate other people. Haruko orders Haru to 'civilize' Ren.
As the young man strives to teach Ren how to live in human society, their relationship gradually improves - so much so that Haru plans on taking his 'little brother' to Japan with him once he finds a job.
Unfortunately, fate has a cruel habit of interfering with one's plans...

I like how the author portrayed Ren and Haru's life in Canada in the 1st chapter. Everything is drawn beautifully in this manga, and I can't really find any faults in it. The first chapter was so sweet, and I like it how everything changed so quickly, something which was so unpredictable happened.
Each chapter is so much fun to read, especially seeing the two brothers together. I like how this manga gives out a pleasant feeling, and sometimes it becomes bittersweet. They started off having a pretty much normal relationship, and it gradually evolved into something more. Even though there are only a few volumes, there have been much character development, something which is lacking in most mangas these days.
The author pays much attention to each characters, which makes all of them likeable. Ren and Haru's relationship is still a little odd, seeing as they love each other as brothers and lovers. Note: This is not a manga where the 2 characters just have sex with each other in practically each chapter, nor is this a manga about a guy who is doing it with a kid (Ren looks a bit like one, but he's 15). I kinda had a different image on this manga before I read it because of the cover page. But it looks really good though!
Plus, everything is quite slow moving despite the first few chapters, but you'll find yourself appreciating every moment of it. Read this manga and you'll get hooked up instantly

I admit that the title of this manga sort of scared me (Super Lovers sounds like a very kinky playful yaoi with a ton of sex and probably a very weird story, lol) and then the look of the uke, who looks like he's way young. After reading it though, I really can't look at it as pseudo-shota (plus he is 15 - it's not real shota!) anymore, no matter how tiny Ren is! He is very mature, real and doesn't come across as too young at all. His short stature also isn't that big of a deal (at least so far in the manga) because it's not as extreme as other pseudo-shota works like Okane Ga Nai, ect.
Instead, this is a rather down-to-earth, realistic and sweet story of a guy with a brother complex an his 3 younger siblings. The fact that Ren struggles so much with himself, figuring out his feelings and then trying to change their relationship from just brothers to more is done extremely well. I love that the uke here actually wants to possess the seme as much as the seme wants the uke; their feelings are mutual! Many yaoi mangas have rough semes forcing the uke, and then the uke just kind of going along with it thinking that must be love but in reality they only care that the seme kinda likes them. It's soooo nice and refreshing to see an uke who desires the seme this much, makes moves, initiates kisses, worries about them and wants to make sure their feelings are mutual.
I'm glad I read this, can't wait for the following chapters and recommend this to anyone who is after a real story, lovable characters, a strong uke who tries hard not to be a child, and a slow-building romance.
Considering I'm a big fan of Abe sensei's "Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike!", it's not surprising that I love this work as well!
(If you haven't read "Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike!" and you don't mind a shonen ai relationship that does not go beyond teasing and kinda flirting, and especially if you want a long story - 26 volumes !!! - then READ THAT as well!!!!)
You have to read this
This manga is totally amazing.it's not shota since ren grows but it is wonderfully romantic and dynamic.there aren't many sex scenes and it's like shounen ai but I really love it.Remember for those who dislike shotacon it isn't shota.they wait 7 years before doing anything and ren is 15 and shota is 13 and below.
If you don't know it, you Have to read it !!!it's a wonderful manga, with an innocent love between them ! it's so cute ! and it have actually 15 chapiter .Not 6 Ch like manga-update says . and it still beign reallease so it's not drop !
You have to read it i tottaly recomande it !
IN LOVE with this manga. I normally like to read smutty adult stories, but this is super moving and really hits home. It deals with a lot of loneliness issues. The way that the two main characters' relationship develops is SOOOO sweet and adorable. I love Haru's jealousy and extreme brother complex. ;__; And Ren is such a considerate sweetheart. They mostly just kiss, but the way they start moving further works so well with the relationship they have. Everything is so perfect in my opinion. I'm excited to read the next chapter because I'm never disappointed with anything in the plot. *__*
This story's greatest strength is its cast of easily likeable, fleshed out characters, from the protagonists down to the tertiary characters. The characters drives the story so entertainingly you wouldn't want to miss a word.
The manga is self-aware of its issues with two people falling in love too soon and not one is swept under the rug, just continually brought to the fore (with a vengeance!).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I like that the underage relationship gets repeatedly called out by the people around Ren and Haru, which makes for a fantastic running gag that I don't think I'd get tired soon as I, a non-shota reader, would've had the same reaction as everyone around them did. I still gasp every time they kiss. O_o
Great art, solid pacing, and wonderful chemistry between all characters.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
I love this manga, I can't stop reading it since I first started. Even tho this manga isn't finish but whoever looking for Volume 5 chapter 1 then can visit, Manga-go.com . They have most newest chapters.
My absolute favorite :3
This is so goood, and i love Ren and Haru.. I can't wait for more. I'm seriously thinking about getting vol.4 in Jap, even though I can't read it. >.< I'm so anxious for more.
i was also worried at first with the age gap... but i loved that first sensei estructured a deep story between the characters and then broke it, and then conected it again. i couldn't believe it i suffered with Ren and Haru, it was beautiful. And omg the kisses...sweet and full of love.
And boy am I glad I did. From it's first few releases, I couldn't help but notice that the series had been given a rather high rating. At first, I thought, "The hell? It can't possibly be that great, but 3 volumes in, and I'm seriously hungry for more. I seriously regret not learning Japanese at an earlier age, cause I know there are raw scans out there somewhere.
Anyways, on with the good and-oh wait, there is no bad. Haha, but seriously, I'm not joking.
Art: I read sensei's other work, Komatta I think? Loved it, but catching up and waiting for newer scans to be released seriously wore me out. Her art is without a doubt, lovely. And just when I think her characters sometimes come off as a bit expressionless, she proves me wrong when the emotion is clearly shown on their face. Very pretty and easy on the eyes with fine lines and details. I like her style.
Story: Honestly, the summary didn't pull me in at the beginning. Don't let that fool you as the story so far is amazing, along with somewhat believable interactions. It's sad, it's sweet, funny, and at rare times, quite sexy, which blew me away due to Miyuki-sensei's very soft, and almost non-existent sexual scenes.
Characters: Haru is seriously the type of big brother that I would want, seeing as how he's so affectionate with his younger brothers, because that's totally my thing as well. But about Haru and his whole affectionate kissing thing. This series contains little to almost no sexual scenes (sort of), but after reading about through 10 chapters containing scenes of Haru kissing Ren, I have to admit: I was seriously turned on. I've read plenty of hardcore yaoi, but I honestly have never found myself flushing over a kiss. I'm not sure if it's due to their expressions, or the intensive manner in which Haru goes about while kissing Ren, but whatever it is, I REALLY hope to see more than that. As for Ren, he himself is too cute for words, and Shima and Aki as well (yay, twins!). Haruko-san is probably my favorite though. Gotta love them strong-willed women.
Overall: I REALLY, REALLY love this series. Despite the shotacon element, it is done rather tastefully, unlike the shota/loli raping stuff going on in other stories. So, if you are a person who dislikes yaoi/shotacon, please do give this manga a try, as it may change your view on the subject matter more than you'd think.
