1-3) Ultras
A victory for the national team was decided in the European Football Championship that night. The whole country overflowed with joy, including Leon who drank, raised hell, and ended up spending a night together with "someone he should never have gotten involved with." That man's name was Al, from the rival team Liberta's ULTRAS supporters club! He understands that it will never work, but from their first meeting, Al is lodged firmly in his heart. From The Moon in a Box.

A suave conman, John Smith, bumps into a french man on the streets who tries to pick his pocket. The pickpocket, Jean, convinces the swindler to bring him home, but where will things go from here? John will soon learn that Jean is not just a pickpocket....

Can the two men somehow create something beautiful once more?

After he migrated east (to Japan) he suddenly found himself popular with both men and women... even being nicknamed "Invincible Armada".

This is one of Est Em's lighter works compared to her usual norm, but that really isn't very relevant here as it's still an enthralling read regardless. I myself am not very accustomed to the whole football clubs culture in Europe, thus I might not have the most wholesome image of how brutal and crude it could get between fans of rival clubs. Nonetheless the main story here still appealed to me to great lengths, from the characters to the plot development, all very intriguing and captivating. The other stories are also special in their own ways, each takes on different subjects and expertise but all the same entertaining. I really like Est Em's works after all.

Btw, was I the only one who had to do some research 'homework' for better understanding of the stories? It was so fascinating when I found out Spain's 2008 victory in the UEFA European Championship was the circumstances and inspiration behind them, hehe.

Realistic and mature - really well written stories. My regards to the scanlators for a job well done!!
If you like this one, read 'Lies Are A Gentleman's Manners' too.

Quite Ok, I just wish that the stories were longer. Because it felt like most of them didn´t even have a real ending.
Plotwise their original and fun to read, and the art is definitly a big plus.

Recommended, as a light-hearted read when you don´t have anything else to do.

I am a big fan of Est Em's works and this is no exception. It may not be my favorite, but it's still her, through and through. Her writing style is so distinct and unique. More mature? More dry? I'm not even sure, but it's good stuff. Part of me has difficulty addressing her as "she", as I really feel as though I'm seeing more of a man's perspective as compared to most bl manga.

I absolutely adore Est Em's style: the way she draws, the way she tells the stories, the fact that they're primarily set in either Spain or France (and in one of the one-shots this time around, in Japan).

I was quite attached to the main story, and was a bit disappointed when I started reading the fourth chapter only to find out it was a new story. I quickly got over that since the other stories were amusing and different, though in some cases slightly creepy (referring to "The Onlooker"). Oh! Also, to feed that hunger for more Alfonso and Leon (even if only just a little), the last chapter is a follow-up on their story.

Anyway! I definitely recommend this as well as everything else by Est Em; I've loved everything I've had the chance to read of hers so far so it's really no surprise that I loved this one as well.
