Sequel to the novel River's End (Novel).

Yorozu lives in a love hotel. When a film crew comes to the hotel to make an AV, he has an encounter with Togame, the director. On the first day, Yorozu is asked to be a substitute actor and has his pants pulled down; it was the worst first impression ever! To make matters worse, he's worried about the openly gay Togame getting close to his younger brother, Satoru. Yorozu takes action and tries to keep Togame away from his brother, but...

wonderful slow moving romance

Castle Mango is a lovely, slow moving piece, but it doesn't feel 'slow' at all. The characters are well-developed, at least so far. I am giving it an "8" because I have only read the first volume, and am waiting for the rest to be released in English. But the way it is going, I am really looking forward to reading the rest of it (and looking forward to a great read is a treat that I don't get very often).

Oh damn-it-all, I decide to read a story before finding out if it's complete and look where it gets me! T_T such a great story T.T I want to know what happens next! XD 9/10 because I hate waiting, but it's an absolute must-read if you like BL ;3

Happily Yaoi After

Folks, my heart is fluttering with this one. Its a definite gem. It is so rare to to see the main couple NOT have sex in the first volume but this manga has done it. Plus, the setting is so unorthodox, and yet it doesnt come out as tacky but instead added drama between the couple. In addition, we have 2 guys who arent static like those typical seme vs uke showdown where the uke plays hard to get. Rather, Yorozu is SMART and manipulated Togame...if the author can continue to pull this off like this in the 2nd volume I may have to locate a bookstore and buy this bad boy.

Great! I love the art, I love the plot, everything! And then it's not complete yet...
I also really enjoy, when one of the protagonists doesn't like the other in the beginning. Slow moving romances really are the best. Unfortunately I have the feeling you get that more with shounen ai than with yaoi. I'm a hopeless romantic, so I'm definitely a sucker for this one.

This is good. Of course the art is good, but the story is so compelling and well-paced. You just get sucked in. Not much to criticize, really. The characters are well-made for the (up till now) 5 chapters. Interesting with such a down-to-earth storytelling in a setting that's almost begging for some smut (as seen in Calling (OTSUKI Miu) or Haru wo Daite Ita - though these are also good, just very different).

I'm looking very much forward to the next chapter.

the art and the story is amazing...i usually don't like when the character have a big age gap, but this one is an exception..maybe because both of them have the same physique and looks manly, besides the awesome plot. It's really good. Now, just hoping it would be updated soon!

This manga is one of my all time favorites! I really want to know what happens next! The art is superb and the story brings out my inner fangirl (-///-) the story line is nothing like i have read before, its very different which makes it fun to read. and the characters themselves are very unique!
its so sweet and well written! I hope that it is updated soon!!!

Don't know why, but the first volume kept me interested the whole way through and I will definitely buy the next one. Maybe I just want to find out how these two fall in love, because so far, they're relationship is moving slowly. It's cute though.

I don't usually read slice-of-life but this one gave a warm fuzzy feeling. It's really a pleasant manga to read. I usually go for smuttier BL but I think that the lack of it made the story better. It's because the uke was underaged and the seme wanted to wait for him. It shows that he respects and love him. This BL actually has a plot and it's not like the ones where the pairing lusts for each other and they have sex every chapter or all they think about is their SO's penis. It's a nice change to read less racier material and I think I might do so for a while. There's meaning behind their relationship and you can feel it is real. There is good character development. They are attracted to each other but they don't fall in love right off the bat. Even though there were moments that frustrated me because of the misunderstandings, I think they were necessary in the story. It tugged my heartstrings and it led me to anticipate more in the story. It was very well-written due to the good pacing and story elements that were included.

This manga was a collaboration between two people. Therefore, I think that it allowed for better story development. The art was also quite delightful. It suited the slice-of-life feel of the manga. In a way, it was charming yet simple and it worked so well for the story.

The overall feel of the story left me feeling satisfied yet wanting for more. The length of the manga was actually just right but it made me want to find something similar to read. Therefore, don't hesitate to read this. It has a good combination of story and art. One of the better BL I've read. To be honest, it's truer to the genre. It's Boys' LOVE not LUST. (Ok with the exception of yaoi but still, I'd prefer BL to feel more real.)
