Rushed & ends with a bitter taste.

Well, it is a oneshot and therefore, there isn't much space for character or plot development. Still, it would have been nice, if it wasn't that rushed and focused on getting the characters together physically. Even after the ending it felt like they are far apart from each other on the emotional level and ...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Seeing the one stepbrother turning into an impatient manipulator, right after he told the other one he would wait, just left a bitter taste. That's exactly what I meant, about them being far apart emotional, just like the few words the one being pursued said all together. Lol.

Another "no shades of gray"

I realized while re-reading most of Minase Masara-sensei's works that, even if the style is good, the graphic is really poor when it comes to details and shades. I understand that if the drawing is simpler it may be more beautiful and good, but this just hurt my eyes. It's too much white and a little black. It's as if it's unfinished.
Regarding the story...well, not much to say. The plot is not that complicated because it's an oneshot and basically it's about a reunion. I kind of realized that most of sensei's work is the same. The same kind of plot, same kind of characters...nothing changes much.
It's good as it lasts but if she keeps this, all her work will become boring.
I don't mean to offend. I like her, but sometimes I live under the impression that she becomes lazy and her ideas won't change much.

Huhm... I guess it's okay xD
It's just that when it comes to oneshots, I have quite high expectations to the content exactly because they are so short, and "Machibito" didn't really stand out or anything. Too cliché, I guess(even though I usually like that stuff xD). The art though, I must say, is really beautiful ^________^

It's basically about sex...the plot isn't exacly new (that's why I don't like oneshots much, though).
The ending is a little surprising.
And although I don't give a damn about incest, it actually creeped me out a little. And they weren't even real brothers! And there a lot of mangas where the characters are brothers and I don't mind at all...strange.

Oh, but the art is fine!

Deftly Delivered Comment on the Selfish Nature of Love

OH! So far, out of all her one shots that I've read, this one is by far superior to the rest. The artwork is clean and beautiful, not overly toned, but what really shines is the snappy story.

Wow! I just love the surprise twist at the end! It is built up perfectly--when I read over it a second time, there are lots of cohesive hints about Kyou's growing desperation not to be alone--but it was still a surprise when I arrived at the end revelation!

I personally enjoy stories of love betweem stepbrothers. This one of Minase sensei's older works for sure. It was short and the story so fast that I didn't enjoy it as I would have if it was a little longer.

But over all a good read, but not one of sensei's best work.

When it comes to most stories I have a hard time overlooking certain ways relationships come to be or come back into being...despite a little bit of goodness I am inclined to just pass it over.
