My favorite Naono Bohra comic   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

I love this story. It doesn't matter that the action is minimal, the plot is so heartwarming that you forget that you're reading BL. Read it for yourself, you'll enjoy it.

Naono Bohra isn't afraid to write characters with disabilities, and though this one is a little different (being supernatural) it's still touching. Rakamu and Maruu are a much more interesting couple than Norito and Koma from the sequel, though I kind of feel that Rakamu and Maruu's story would be stretched thin if it were full length. I'd love to see what happens after the 4koma, though. ^^

I'm really glad Rakamu's character design was reused in another work, Tamago no Hi (vol 3). Even if she says she doesn't like drawing long hair, Naono does it well.

Story from Yami ni Tooboe, Mune ni Toge

This one-shot goes along with it's prequel, Yami ni Tooboe, Mune ni Toge, a manga also by the same author. It tells of the last characters who meet and bond with each other... It's a great tale. To better understand the youkai and the contract that is made you have to read the prequel!

How sweet~ :3

The art is nice, I love the way they drew the dragon part~. No complains whatsoever.

Story was cute as well, although I'd love it longer and more details on the background. Well... I suppose there's the possibility of finding out more in the main story? I sure hope so...

the way romantic oneshots should be done

Delicious. There is just enough plot for a oneshot, not too much and yet not too little. The romantic development is both fantastic and believable, the erotic element is there but it's not mindless porn. If you like yaoi & fantasy, try this one.

Ooo very much liked this. It was a really nice story and even though it was a oneshot it didn't feel horribly unfinished like a lot of them do. That being said it would still have been nice to read a bit more of a storyline. I loved the ending, the only reason it didn't get the full ten for me was because firstly I thought it had a lot of potential so a couple more chapters would have done it justice and secondly there was no actual sex which I thought was a little disappointing, I was expecting at least a kiss.
On the whole though - do read it smile

Fantasy I Like!

A very intriguing fantasy piece. I love the illustrations of Rakamu: They were magnificient. The blood, rope and bound arms along with the symbolism of the 'poison' was vivid. I also like that, although it was such a short piece, the mangaka touched deftly on the issue of how one god is no better (read: good or evil) than another. It all depends on which side you are seeing it from, like any war!
The blind man wanting to be needed created a few panels that were very sweet.
