Fun collection!

This collection of many oneshots is really fun to read.
The art is - as usual - very pretty. Her men are muscular and manly but at the same time beautiful!
I think sensei has to be one of the few mangaka who manage to make men look that pretty without making them look overly girly, feminine or strange.
The oneshots don't contain that much story but they're interesting, with fun characters and they get to the point. Every one of them is enjoyable, but the one I liked best was the two-part story of the mahjong players.
Only one thing I have to say is: the stories are all pretty cheesy! As an average boys love reader though I think you'll just end up enjoying them and smiling^^
Even if you don't think the first couple stories are that great, it gets better later on, so keep reading!

The second story was really corny >_< But the rest where ok. The love sometimes appears spontaneously so thats a minus there, on one page they hate each other and in the next they are making out and confessing their mutual love. But considering they are one-shots it's understandable.
I really like how the semes are drawn *-* so manly and buff *drools* and the ukes in most of her stories look like men, though in this manga there's always the delicate looking uke, but there's still a few manly looking ones. Again ripped semes <3 Her mangas always have super-manly-hot-ripped semes XD OMG if real life men were like that *looks around and sighs in disappointment*
Overall I liked it, what it may lack in plot it makes up for it in eye candy.

This was one of the first yaoi mangas I've ever read and one of the reasons I kept reading. I think this manga is seriously underrated! You can't really expect complicated plots and extensive character growth from a collection of one shots, can you? I personally didn't find the ideas for the stories unoriginal and the characters were all likeable to me... The art is undoubtedly gorgeous and the men actually look like men, the ukes too, instead of little girls... Akira Norikazu's artstyle is probably my most favorite! Reading this left me feeling happy and light. So if you're looking for an epic, complex, deep as the ocean, with an intricate plot kind of manga then I suggest you look elsewhere. If, however, you want to read funny, light and sexy short stories, try this. I loved it!

First two chapters were quite awful if I were to be honest so I wanted to give up and find a better read. Good thing that I didn't because the other stories were really cute and fun. Sex scenes were rather boring which is why I considered them useless. Luckily, the sense of humor was making up for that. I'll most likely soon forget about and maybe read it again in a few years on another lazy evening.

This stories were quick easy reads. I enjoyed the second, fifth, sixth, and eight chapter. I love oneshots like this because they don't have too much baggage and are very entertainingsmile

God.. this manga wasn't good. I'm not a big fan of the "sudden love confessing" scenes and this manga is full of it. Sad to say because the art's good.

The second chapter was probably one of the worst. Not in terms of art or bad sex scenes but the plot was just terrible. o_e

I had to say i enjoyed this. First, though its a collection of one shots, the stories are all quite interesting and the characters are fun and show a surprising amount of depth for such a short span of pages. Secondly, the art. I really like this art style, its unreserved and has realistic elements without going all the way. My only real disappointment with this is that they were all short stories. I would have liked most of them to have had more time and depth added.

I'll say right now that I'm not a fan of gratuitous sex scenes or girly ukes. That's probably why I'm drawn so much to Norikazu Akira's yaoi. Her ukes are manly, but still manage to be cute. Her semes are domineering without coming off like sadistic jerks (not that I mind sadistic jerks, mind you - but her semes seem much more realistic). The sex is there, but not so in your face with body fluids and squelching noises everywhere for pages on end. Also, based on this collection of one-shots and her "Beast & Feast" series, she likes yakuza / law enforcement stories - which I find lots of fun.

Now, about this collection in specific: It was really enjoyable for me. It's a great mix of themes, with some yakuza, some espionage, some gambling, some businessmen, old school friends and glasses, even royalty. A bunch of fun stuff in here. I'd recommend it for anyone who likes their yaoi to have pretty artwork and ukes who are actually men, instead of high school girls with penises wink

all the stories were stupid and unreal, the kind of D-movies love stories were virgin ukes act like women, so innocent that they are annoying, and all so sensitive!
and semes? often rapists, selfish and arrogant. not sexy at all.

good art and sex scenes (except for the overly girly ukes) but art alone doesn't make a good manga if the plots are stupid.

This was the first of Akira sensei's manga I read. I enjoyed it. It was a little werid for me at first as I wasn't use to such manly ukes and such. But it grew on me, and now a devoted fan of her's.

It was a good story and overall read smile
