Cliche, Cliche, Cliche... With Some Jerks Thrown In.

Wow. This volume is chock full of Grade A jerks. Seriously. And loads upon loads of shoujo cliches.

"A Boy's Sweet Love" is the title story here... and there's really nothing "sweet" about this boy's love. He just decides he wants the girl and... That's that. End of story. Three chapters of a guy insisting their love is meant to be, a girl refusing to accept she likes the guy, and the two of them having questionably consensual sex every other minute. I think I just described every Haruko Kurumatani manga ever written. (Don't take offense, Kurumatani fans... I actually DO like some of her stuff, or else I wouldn't have read this.)

"Love of a Beast" is probably the best story in this volume. It's the same formula, really (Guy forces himself on girl, Girl pretends not to like it, yadda yadda, True Love), but at least done in an upfront enough way that it doesn't grate on the psyche quite so much. As questionable as selling yourself to pay off your family's debts is... At least the guy isn't QUITE such a jerk for, you know, having his way with her. (Look at the things Haruko Kurumatani is making me say!!!)

"Connected to You" was the worst of this bunch. There's just no depth to it, no emotion. How are these two in any way "connected"... Other than him being a big, fat jerk and her apparently going for that kind of thing? I just don't get it. This story was very flat.

Haruko Kurumatani has written some worthwhile shoujo manga... but this isn't one of them.

I can't even remember what happened in this story. And I'm actually very good at remembering what happens in stories. So just skip it, unless you're a fan of the mangaka.

I was actually excited to read this like a year before, but after reading it, it really wasn't what I expected. The girl was so strong willed for about.... 5 pages. The plot seems recycled and is it me, or does the guy always hurt the girl then end up with her in the end with absolutely no explanation to the girl? That's so unrealistic.

I think this story is very cliché. The story is unoriginal. The mangaka tried to make the girl strong willed but failed. The drawings are boring and the proportions of the human bodies are negatively wacky!
