this is great. love it. a+. slow romance, cohabitation, yankees, delinquents, touch of gangs/yakuza, interesting art, an actually gay-identifying mc, the right amount of comedy— i swear to god it might just be perfect.

i don’t think it’s complete though (at 3 volumes)?

Wholesome and character-driven; what more could you ask for?

My two favorite things about this series are:

1) The art style: for long-time readers of BL manga the art style of Dousei Yankee might seem off-putting because it's drawn by a shonen/seinen manga-ka, giving the overall look and tone a more rugged, realistic perspective. I find it to be absolutely refreshing and fun, and it adds so much to Shoowa's fanatic storytelling. It's not for everyone, but if you love BL series that are outside of the status quo then this one is for you.

2) Character-driven story: so having a foreigner as the main love interest isn't something new in BL, but I've noticed that some authors tend to reduce that character down to just that: their "foreign"ness. There isn't much to their personalities other than they aren't Japanese, and the story ends up revolving around how endearing their ignorance is. In this story, the tachi is Philipine-born, but, (un)surprisingly, is actually a really interesting and dynamic character! As someone who is familiar with Japanese culture and their tendancy to close themselves off from foreigners, it's really exciting to see an immigrant play a large role in a series made for Japanese readers. This might not be as important a point for anyone else except me, but it's because of this reason that this series is now one of my favorite BLs of all-time.

Anyway, this manga is wonderful. I highly recommend it to those who are growing tired of BL tropes, but also don't take the genre too seriously, while also looking for a wholesome, slow-burning, memorable love story.

Genre-defying and so refreshing!

At first glance, this manga looks like a typical delinquent shounen series. Then you see the tags and notice that it's... yaoi? This series is a collaboration between long-time BL author and a shounen/seinen action mangaka - it sounds crazy, but the thing is, it works. Really well.

The art is very playful and masculine, which is really fitting for a yankee manga, and it's a breath of fresh air in the predominantly female-drawn world of BL. Best of all, the characters act like actual dumb guys. And even though it's a BL, the focus isn't entirely on romance, but more slice of life problems, including how Akamatsu's family deals with his sexuality. It's very realistic in terms of BL, doubly so when compared to Shoowa's previous works.

One last thing that really struck me - they talk about consent. Even when they do eventually get into a relationship, Seven goes along with Akamatsu's pace instead of forcing him into doing anything! It's unfortunate that consent is so rarely encountered in manga (and especially BL), that this line stuck with me: "I'll refrain from touching your dick without your consent." Wow, what a concept!

Bottom line - read this manga.

This manga so good. I like the drawing and how story is going. At first I don't expect much of the manga reading the description. But I try to read it. It kind of fun reading it. Although there still some part of story that I still can't really understand. I still like the development of the character and the story.
