Tango no Otoko  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Angie, though hailed as "The Man of Tango," had never truly felt the deep, fiery passion of Latin dance. That is, until he met Hiro, a man born from a Latin mother, who was under his Japanese grandfather's custody and now lives as a Japanese citizen. Now, a slow, seething desire begins to rock his body and soul! At first feeling a nostalgic familiarity toward the Latin dancer, Hiro finds himself drawn into the seductive beat of a Latin dance, opening his body and heart to the smoldering heat of his Tango partner.

Love is displayed in the step of the tango. They are stories of loved dancers in the tango.

Note on scanlation completion: SuBLime's North American release includes an epilogue and the "pilot" oneshot that were not in the original Japanese tankobon

Yaoi enthusiasts - if you haven't read this manga you are REALLY missing out on something awesome!

This mangaka knows the human anatomy and has researched on Tango well. She has not put in sex scenes just for the heck of it (although they are plenty and just too hottt!!!), but has spun an interesting story with appealing characters that develop as the plot progresses. This is yaoi at it's best yet!

Everything I love in Yaoi, without the stuff I hate. It's more than I've ever asked for. Realistic relationships with amazing drawings and great dialogue. Okadaya-sensei has just made a new lifelong fan. biggrin

Now personally, these type of guys, who are either hairy of so muscular it's to the point of steroids is not my thing, but if you're up for that, then go for it. The art is fantastic, the mood is sensual and seductive, the dancing is sexy, and the sex is DETAILED. Like everything is uncensored. For yaoi fans like me, that's great, but the fact that the men are not my type kind of takes away from it a little bit for me. I like bishounen or muscular without bulging out and no body hair. But still, this is definitely well done and unique.

I LOVED this, it´s so refreshing reading something new from time to time instead of just wasting energy on yaoi with repeatable plots.
The plot is original and something that really gets you hooked, and the art is simply breathtaking. You can see that the mangaka had an eye for detailes and I was really amazed that she could both draw and explain the tango steps with such simplicity (which is good, because Tango is a complicated artform by my opinion).

I couldn´t help but feel that Hiro is very naive in some ways, but that didn´t make me feel annoyed or bored, it made me feel rather exited. Because with Hiros naivitey and Angies sexyness, you couldn´t expect what was going to happen next.

Add the muscles of Bara, the drama and inner turmoil of yaoi, and the eroticism not found anywhere else, and you got this.

The topic of Tango, as previous reviewers had said, is a really refreshing thing to read too.

The only negative points I can give is: a) the mangaka need to draw more female bodies, b) the manga, at times, feels....quite confusing. Or maybe that's just me.

The ending is good too, in a way. Not necessarily the 'happily evah AFTAH' so wearily used, but still implies the same happiness.

all I can say is WOW..the art is beautiful and not just the smutty parts (O.~). I've read a lot of yaoi but never one with a tango theme it was a refreshing change although the whole "I'm not gay but I sleep with men" thing came up BUT it doesn't ruin it at all. Very manly and I mean manly looking guys here. I really do hope this cont to be's just a fun and smexy read!

as everyone's comments have been, this one is a refreshing manga from all the standard yaoi stories and pairings out there. I never really appreciated 'bara' when it comes to yaoi because I feel like there's too much beef going around if you know what I mean. But this one carried the gentleness and femininity quite right, it's not too much 'bara' and doesn't border much on ridiculous feminity (as we can all see upon many uke archetypes).

Give it a try!

that was a very good manga. the artwork was rough and nice. the story was realistic and adult-like. this do the justice to gay relationships. the theme of tango was interesting (like ladyAOI i had never hit upon this theme in a yaoi manga before). besides you can't really tell who is who in this relationship and THAT is refreshing (getting fed up with the girly uke whose sensitive body is so made to be lovED).

note this isn't really yaoi, you call it rather bara: BL stories written mostly by gay men and aimed at a gay male audiance. Yep 'cause there is a lot of muscles and body hair in this story^^)
have fun reading it.

Manly men biggrin yay!!! I liked the story. For such a big guy Hiro is really cute XD and I disagree with the comment below, his girlfriend was horrible, it was good he broke up with her.
If you are into pretty and girly characters then this manga isn't for you bigrazz The characters here are manly and full of muscle ^-^

Tbh, I expected a totally different story but I was pleasantly surprised. It's way more mature than your average BL. I'm not used to the bara men, all muscled and hairy, but I really liked it. I've found it to be more "real". The plot progresses steadily and it's not rushed or slow, just perfect.
I loved the characters, although I found Angie hard to understand. Hiro was my fav <3!
The lemon scenes were very detailed and hot but there are not many, just a couple. I think it was enough, it's more about the story than the sex.

I recommend this manga if you want to try something different.
