From Attractive Fascinante:

1. I'll Deliver It
Aogaki Kouhei, a famous designer, was kind to everyone else except to Hasegawa. The weird thing was, he always gave Hasegawa expensive desserts. Hasegawa felt puzzled, but gradually fell in love with the arrogant man. While making a delivery to Aogaki on a rainy day, Aogaki dragged him into his house to wash his feet for him. Did Hasegawa have a special place in Aogaki's heart too?

2. The Other Side of the Porch
Ootomo has fallen for his neighbor, Ichikawa. The two university students attend different colleges and only meet each other once in a while outside the apartment, but will Ichikawa's little white cat help them become closer?

3. Satisfaction
Tall, studly university student Takeuchi Tomoe notices a slim classmate peeking at him whenever they pass each other in the hall. A friend later tells him he saved the pretty classmate, Shibata Daiki, from falling a while back. Takeuchi realizes he is abnormally bothered by Shibata's presence when a part-time teddy bear mascot working at his parents pharmacy reminds him of Shibata... unless there's more to that suit than Takeuchi can see.

4. The Beginning
After getting smashed at a business drinking session the night before, Atsuhiro wakes up in a foreign room to find his business client sitting on top of him. Matsukura (the client) tells Atsuhiro that he brought him home and was raped by him. Atsuhiro is horrified that he could do something like that to Matsukura... but then a second Matsukura walks in saying none of that really happened. Why are there two of them, and what really happened last night?

5. The Depth of Love
The older-brother's-friend story. Harigaya Kenichi is the junior of Ryou's nii-san. Ever since Ryou was little, Kenichi has been harassing him. Even now, when Ryou's in high-school and Kenichi is a car dealer, the unpleasant teasing continues... but perhaps it is the old "tease the one you like" routine?

6. Turnaround Time
Ookubou used to live near Shimotori... now Shimotori just transferred to work at the hospital Ookubou works at. A reunion after so many years should be joyous... but why did it end up like this?

7. 8 Mats of Suite
Rintarou was kicked out of his house by his mother... now he's living in a tiny, dismal apartment. The only thing that makes it alright is the neighbor and his college classmate, Ono.

8. Do Me a Favor
Follow up of story 1.

Getting There

I am pass the point of being bothered by rape in yaoi. What really bothered me now, even more so than before, is the narration, plot and story line. All three of them are horribly lacking in this. I wonder why I didn't rate this any lower, and that's probably because it is getting there. It's not all bad.

Everything is good except for chapter 6. Don't even think that a lowkey gentleness + lame reunion + confession + with a little bit of tears from the rapist would fix every damn rape with the doctor that happened. I mean, what did Asahi want? He raped Yuuta, and when Yuuta showed pity, he was angry. I understand that he was in a state of a mental torture, but I don't agree with him gambling his relarionship with Yuuta in exchange for non consensual sex. He was just soooo fking lucky that Yuuta was a forgiving neko dammit.

So cute and fluffy! I want more on the delivery guy story! That was so adorable! But way too short. Would be nice to have some more character development.

All of the stories are short oneshots ranging from 16 to 28 pages. If you dislike that, I'd suggest not reading this manga. But the oneshots are really lovely so give them a shot. The first story does come with an extra story continuing it so it does continue a little. smile

I feel like every single one of the one shots in here ends so abruptly. Not in a good way where it leaves you wanting more because it was so good, but in a bad way. It was way too rushed in my opinion. I liked the settings and varieties on the couples.
The art is clean and nice, it's okay. The cover had me interested in this manga right away, but the art inside was nothing special or on par with the cover.

Bunch of One Shots. I've read a few of Setsuko's works and she really knows how to express the romance. No chibis or annoying personalities, just cute/sweet little stories with nice pairings :3

The drawing style of KATOU Setsuko is as always pretty neat and clean. This impression might come from the clear outlines and colorings, which are sometimes not my cup of tea. However, the artwork is average and likeable, if you don't mind this slighty "simple touch".

As for the stories included, they have various well-known settings. The age gap, coworkers or college students love are just examples, but allow you a glimpse of the themes.

Sometimes the stories have an unsettling flow, which shows some weaknesses, like a rushed and pushed smut scene or feelings, that come a bit out of the blue. Sighs. However, especially the "The Depth of Love" and "The Beginning" have been had an interesting atmosphere and funny twist. Maybe they are the main reason, why I was raising my rating by at least 1 point. Coughs.

All story in this manga is REALLY GOOD!!! None in this manga that i didn't like. But the ending of all story is Just Like That. What i mean by That is the ending is fast!!! I still want more but the ending is really Just Like That. Well... actually i think too that maybe it's the best if ending if all story is really Just Like That. But still, this is my FAVORITE manga too! Recommended! smile

As always I really enjoyed KATOU Setsuko's art. It's nice and clean and I do not agree with zombiefetishlove on the foreheads. To me they look just fine. The stories were also nice and entertaining. This is a good read to pass some time.

My take on it

I really adored this!
First, just let me say that I don't normally do one shots. Somehow or another I always wish for a work to be longer and more detailed or short or even non-existent. The art work Is beautiful, nicely drawn. It's definitely up to today's standards. The artwork you see on the cover is exactly what you see on the inside. If you don't have a problem with the cover art, you won't have a problem with the inside.

The story's range from tales of delivery boys, businessmen, close friends, acquaintances & more.
The story's were in classic one shot format, leaving some stories for the imagination of the reader, while some felt like it could of had more. What do you expect? They're a book of one shots. labeled as such, expect it. More to the point, I mainly liked how the characters didn't seem extremely unrealistic. There was a sense of realness with a touch of the standard Yaoi feel. The situations the character were in didn't have a "been there, done that" feel to it, and were unique in a way. Although, the standard Yaoi level seems to change from story to story.

Final verdict:
I enjoyed it. Some stories I liked more than others, but that's to be somewhat expected with books like these, labeled oneshots. Depending on how fast you read it took anywhere between 25-45 minutes to read. You could definitely finish it within an hour. If your a quick reader, probably 25 minutes or sooner. An interesting, yet lighthearted book of oneshots to read. I completely agree with shoujo_forever's review.

Art is different inside...

The art looks really nice on the cover but inside it's kind of bad. The face is drawn weird and eveyone's foreheads are too small.

Nothing special about the stories. Skip this.
