Pink is the story of a young high school student named Usagi who is trying to become a porno manga artist. Who would've figured that out of a such a cute, innocent blond boy? Guiding him is Benio, the original artist of the story that Usagi is working on. Benio at first seems to just want to teach, but then finds himself getting a little too interested in teaching Usagi how to get into that, er, certain frame of mind for drawing adult porn.
Now enter in Usagi's father, an attractive, sexy man who is more than a little interested in Benio, and makes no move to hide it both from Benio and his own son. And who could resist that? Who would want to?

The switch in couples wasn't all that bad, but the flow was definitely weird. It's like reading half the manga and boom, the actual seme arrives, like seriously? And plus another big NOPE to him, a wife and two kids, including the one that likes the uke! Nope, just so many nopes. Other then that this manga could've been enjoyable and they should've added more of kid Usaki and the neighbor, Sono. Plus, I have to say I don't really like how the 'main' couple ended up together (sexually).

really! when i read this manga was so depressed, i don't know what the managaka was thinking about when she write this manga! the mangaka start with a story going in a direction and then come to volume 3 and change all the story, and there is not even a love scene it shouldn't be yaoi it should be shonen ai + the art is horrible, i really regret reading this manga its really not worth reading at all :/

oh my, I don't know how to rate it...
The first volume was brilliant, really good, as good as 10 stars of rating. Oh this tender naive beautiful boy Usagi-kun, oh this mature funny beautiful Benio-san! And the circumstances that pushed them together. I was anticipating every bit of this manga.
But second volume was a disappointment T_T. If the first volume was the same as the second one, I wouldn't even bother to begin this manga ^^;. The story became a lame comedy, no real romance, no real drama, no deepness, no tenderness. I even asked myself - was it the manga's author, who wrote the plot for the 2nd volume, or maybe due to the lack of time it was one of her assistants ^^.
Well, maybe the first volume is still worth reading, 'cause it's so good. Therefore 8/10.

I had actually read this before, but I forgot about it completely.

Ok, so it's all about useless adults messing with an innocent high school kid -_- Benio keeps mistreating and making sexual advances to poor Usagi, and then he considers himself a victim instead -_- Disregarding Usagi's feelings for him, Benio just keeps giving false hope to the kid. Then there's the other bastard, Usagi's father who while his son is sick and running a high fever and his wife is away giving birth, he's having sex with Benio.

I'm actually glad Benio and Usagi didn't end up together(At least that's how I interpreted the ending, although it seemed incomplete), being so loose and promiscuous, Benio would have probably cheated on Usagi nonstop and made him suffer.

Most of the characters aren't likable. I think I only liked Usagi, but I deeply dislike his dad -_-

WOW! I just did not expect the was definitely...just didn't see THAT coming, okay well kind of xD I guess it's because Kazuto is a minor, Benio can't really have a relationship with him...but Kazuto does grow up mentally, he realizes some important stuff as he progresses and it's really nice to see in yaoi manga when sex is not the main thing. The manga was funny, fantastic and just plain scandalous. I had a fun time reading it smile and if you can't handle the main uke/seme pairing not ending up together, then I hope you don't get teary-eyed in the end. Benio having a female lover is kind of excusable, he doesn't want to ruin Kazuto's first. Plus he was straight in the beginning, but he discovers his own true sexuality. LOL it's just plain comedic xD

I actually enjoyed this. Although the ending was a bit of a tease, I could kind of just accept it for what it was. This is not a series to get emotionally attached to or which you should take too seriously. It certainly did not make me angry and it had a lot of good moments. It was pretty funny and also rather hot(though a tease!). I really loved the art also.

I can't be satisfied with the ending, for some manga I don't mind if you still feel a bit unsatisfied because it add to the charm of the manga, but here I was just "and ??".
I find the feelings of love a bit shallow and the end to simplistic.

theres the stereotypical uke that goes crazy for the "seme" the seme turns out to be an uke that is sleeping with the uke and with the father of the uke and with his sex friend thats a girl. i was disgusted by everyone in the manga. i felt so sorry for the wife of the father of the uke who was giving birth while the selfish a--hole father was off having sex with his sons lover. this might be exciting for some people but i found it gross and weird.
