It is said that if you wear the suits from that store situated at the antique street, SHIDA, you will achieve success.

Tsundere done wrong  
by HoshiSama
June 26th, 2020, 12:30pm
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0
For me this is the epitome of bad tsundere. The seme’s mood swings are constant between two emotional states; blushing moe blob, and pouty. He lacks any real characterization and instead spends most of the story worrying that he’s unlikable in a way that manages to make it true. If his emotional states weren’t both off-putting highs then it might be more tolerable. That contrasted with the uke’s calm demeanor makes them a really awkward and unbelievable couple. I think Sensei was going for gap moe, but all she managed to achieve was imbalance. The conflict of the story is that the seme is useless and annoying and the uke is too perfect. If that had been the perceived issue instead of the truth maybe it would have been a better story. On the positive side, Sensei’s art is beautiful as always.

I really Love the Uke. He was calm and collected most of time. Makes sense since he's much older and all. But when he shows his selfish and some confidence in front of his Lover's Sister, that he was (hoping) confident that his Lover would go back to him, that was such a Perfect Touch! I'm glad that he can feel a little bit selfish even when he felt hopeless.
The Seme is already Great Character with Flaws and all. His characteristic was pretty common in many manga, but his drunk side and his growing more mature side and even his childish side combined made him a bit different in a Good way. The Conflict was well written too.
It was Great Nice Manga~!

Besides the absolutely glamorous art style, and the lovely home, it's quite interesting to see that the tailor profession isn't just a pop, nor is it discarded as soon as the couple gets together, but is followed through. Though, I am a bit let down by how the sister's character got panned out, the starting was very promising and I wish that line had been continued.
Overall, however, I like this because it fulfills one of the most basic criteria I have for good manga with romance and slice of life settings: consensual sex and a loving nurturing relationship.

My Scarlet Beriko favourite  
by Kuroyuki7

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
For me, this manga is the best of Scarlet Beriko. It was simply adorable with the good amount of smut in the right moments. I loved how the relationship between main characters progressed. I love how they didn't just jump into it at the first chapter but rather got to know each other. I loved the time they spent with each other before they got together. I'm not a fan of an age gap, it's just not working for me, but this one... This one was just so good.
I would also give this manga a huge plus for uke/seme situation. Out of scheme, loved it.
Definitely recommend for people looking for naturally progressing relationship and approachable age gap type of manga.

disjointed and choppy

I wonder if I read the same series as the other people commenting...this was really underwhelming considering the quality of some of Beriko's other works.

I don't know if it was the hella awkward translation or just bad writing, but the plot seemed to rush forward and skip over important parts when I wanted some character development. Like they just started to get a little physical with each other and then....we skip to when they've already done it four times?! This isn't a Cohen brothers film! Their relationship confused me because it felt like there was pieces missing where their chemistry could be established. In the end, all the drama fell flat for me and I couldn't even tell you what the names of the characters are because they were so poorly established. I just remember the general stereotypes of tsundere ojou-sama and an oji-san

I wish we went a little more into the tailor’s backstory, but that’s OK. I thought they made a cute couple and it was refreshing to not have their personalities totally based on their position preferences during sex (which gets old REALLY fast). I really liked the tailor the best, and I enjoyed that the age difference wasn’t done in a creepy way (no one was in high school).

I think I'm a sucker for yaoi manga that don't play into the idea that uke and seme have particular traits that define their role in a relationship. I think I'm even more of a sucker for grounded uke who know what they want. And there's the part where they both work in fine art professions and love what they do. So if you're into any of that, read this since it kinda hit all these sweet spots of mine.

As for the art, Scarlet Beriko has a certain style that just works wonderfully for yaoi.

And if you've made it this far, yeah, it's fairly difficult for me to be objective about this manga. I'll admit the latter part is a bit shoe horned and almost a tangential afterthought. It would overall need to be a bit more tightly written.

I've rated it as a 10 but in my heart it's not actually a 10. In the first 2-3 chapters the seme of this story had many uke-traits, he was a huge tsundere and acted like a girl. At the same time, the uke of this story had a very dominant/macho vibe and was very cool. Then, the mangaka seemed to have changed her mind and made the couple assume the opposite positions in bed and change their characters completely. The uke became insecure and fragile while the seme was at times assertive and at times childish.
The art was cute and the setting of the story was unique and refreshing, however, I didn't like the incosistencies in the plot and their character reformation. I do recommend it though, as a nice read to pass your time.

Enjoyed it!

I'm a huge fan of Beriko and really enjoyed this series as well! The art was beautiful as always and while the story was a bit lacking and seemed a bit rushed it was still endearing and adorable!

I personally enjoy stories with older uke and this was right up my alley. I would recommend for fans to also check out the BLCD if they can.

If I have one comment to say relating to this work (this includes her other work) is that I noticed a number of people complaining about the dynamic of the pairing.

First, Beriko has a particular M.O. when it comes to her pairing so for people who are familiar you should be ready to expect that she often deviates from the standard uke-seme dynamic.

Second, to the people complaining about who is the uke, disappointed or wishing it was the other way around I ask why? There are actually thousands of other BL series that follow the standard pairing which you can enjoy. There is no need be saying "if only x was uke I'll like it/I really wish Y was seme" or "Why can't Beriko make a normal pairing for once". What is normal?

It's not always "feminine/younger =uke or masculine/older=seme. That's a very ridged way of looking at relationships. Also it allows a bit of freedom and break from the stereotypical pairing dynamic and to be honest a welcomed one. I personally love Beriko for doing this and hope she continues in this path with her future work.

A mess  
by OmNom
January 27th, 2017, 3:07am
Rating: N/A
This author is starting to climb her way up my Overrated lists, judging by the ratings and comments on this website. I can virtually see my enjoyment of her works slowly but surely diminishing over time after all the dazzle and sparkles have worn off and her weaknesses in various areas get revealed.

This manga in particular is very pretty, which is the norm for the mangaka now, but the story is such a mess in terms of construction and pacing that I couldn't get into it at all. It's poorly constructed, hastily executed, and awkwardly shoehorned in certain plot points, so every bits of potential in the setting and characters at the beginning feels wasted by the end of the manga.

But hey, this was the mangaka's first serialised title in her career after all - I guess I could cut her some slack for the amateur and unpolished vibe that her work gives off. And the fan-translation for it is very jarring at times, which probably failed to deliver any dialogue nuances and sophistication intended in the original work.
