Collections of fairy tales with a yaoi twist:

1) Beauty and the Beast
It is almost like Disney's Beauty and the Beast. But this story is a little bit different. There is a man with 2 daughters and a beautiful youngest son. The son's name is Belle. One day, the father went out to town for business. He got the daughters' presents except the son. Then, suddenly he saw an extraordinary rose and pluck it for his son's present. A beast came out and shouted...if you want your life to be spared, bring your youngest son to this castle... The man had no choice but to ask his son to go to the castle. Will Belle go to the castle?

2) Glass Pen (Penderella)
Once upon a time there was a mangaka's assistant (slave)... you can guess where this is going can't you? Penderella dreams of being a mangaka, but his mangaka (step-mother) boss is never satisfied with his work. One day there is a mangaka ball, but Penderella is strictly told he cannot go unless he finishes all his 'chores' in time...

3) Fox and the Monk
A little fox fairy is flawed at human transformation, always keeping both ears and tail. One day he tries to trick a traveller with his transformation but fails, yet brashly says 'im the strongest fox fairy'. The traveller, recently cheated by a greedy monk asks the little fox to prove it - and so delivers the little fox to the greedy monk.

4) Artist and the Thief
A little boy loves to tell lies, often crying wolf to the villages. Only one day he see's a group of bandits ready to raid the village, yet when he tries to tell the villagers they all ignore him. However, one of the bandits overhears him and kidnaps him! But the bandit leader, upon seeing the boy, decides to cancel the raid... what does the bandit have planned?

5) My Treasure
A young boy scientist (Bill) creates a replica of his father named Jack. He teaches Jack how to talk and perform tasks, yet somehow when he says the word 'Love' Jack sweeps Bill off his feet and into bed leaving Bill to wonder where on earth Jack learned such a thing!

To the anti-shota reviewers:

I must say that I'm extremely sick of people reading shota and then complaining about all of the young boy sex in it. Seriously, this manga is labeled plainly as shota, so why read it if it you aren't a shota fan? To the person who said "why bother with the shota?": they bother with it because many people LOVE shota. Its a hugely popular, totally legal (they're just unrealistic drawings after all) genre, and thus mangakas aren't "sticking their neck out" when they write it. On the contrary, by writing shota they guarantee themselves a loyal fan base. So, as many yaoi and shota defenders have been saying since the beginning of time--if you don't like it, don't read it! And look at the freakin' genre labels beforehand!

I did not like most of it, for shota it was fine, but for the premise, and what I was expecting it was all just disappointing. However as many have said preceding this the Aladdin story at the end was almost a saving grace, I was glad to at least get something out of it.

Not recommended for anyone who hopes for anything with depth, or not prepared for lots of shota smut.

Just the story about Aladdin is good story! The others is just ordinary and nothing really good about them. So, i give 8.5/10 for story about aladdin and 4.0/10 for others! smile
Total: 5.5

yes, most stories in this manga are just smut shota, but the last story about alladin was brilliant. there was no smut content in it at all. so 10/10 for just that story, 5/10 for others and loved all of himawari souya's art.

they are ridiculous shota one-shots that are not worth the read at all. Itís not because they are shota that makes it particularly bad but rather the mangaka has no imagination and creativity at all. Even though the stories had been changed slightly to allow for the shota/yaoi situations, the manga was trite and boring.
I was very disappointed with this manga for it had such great premise in my opinion-a classic fairytales with a yaoi twist-had great potentials.

I agree with FaeryGoddyss. The premise is excellent. I would love to see a well-thought out BL take on the classic fairytales (preferably not the Disney-i-fied versions).
This collection seemed like it was drawn and written in a hurry. It was unsatisfying and annoying. A colossal waste of time and potential.
And why bother with all the shota? If you are going to use shota, which is risky-business in the first place, why use it for a meaningless, silly story? Why stick your neck out for something that isn't even in the slightest interesting.

This had that sort of potential to be good with the idea. Twisting the fairy tales we all love yaoi-ified? I loved the idea, didnt like the outcome. The stories were short, a bit odd and some of the fairy tales arent common at all. I hadnt even heard of a few of them, and frankly the yaoi versions didnt make me want to find out. I gave it a four because the art isnt so bad.

Besides the tales being half assed, I hadnt expected them ALL to be shota and shota...well, not my cup for what I assume to be obvious reasons. The whole thing was ridiculous.
