Not good, not bad.

Typical yaoi manga. Annoying uke, possessive seme. Nothing interesting with the plot, the sex scenes are like recycled (with the uke screaming "no~ not there" when he's obviously enjoying it -___- ), and the art... is not outstanding at all. Just normal. Everything about this manga is normal.

I recommend this for passing time.

Clam Love

This gets a top rating from me because while the story was not the world's best, and the art was not the world's best, they were both decently presented and nothing to laugh at.

But no, this gets a 10/10 for the hours of amusement it brought to me in the form of the clam. It became a joke amongst friends because... I do not know exactly, but clam. That story was by fan my favourite.

Soft Dacryphilia Kink!

On the publisher, June DMP: The did a great job. The sfx are all left in the original Japanese language art, but with English translations on the side. The quality of the paper and print is beautiful. The original title was left in the raw text as well. Very lovely.

Oh, Nabako-sensei, you are a quirky one! I like her art style; it's very exaggerated. The uke is uber-cute, round and big-eyed with a stereotyped personality: awkward, sweet and kind, but hesitant, insecure and slightly simple. The seme gets the same treatment: all long, angular limbs and sharp eyes with a mean, teasing not-bully, possessive personality, that is a soft, kind centre. Puuuuuurfect sampling of silly, fun, light-hearted yaoi with all the clichés you could ever roll around in with utter disregard for cerebral, academic, psychology. Don't get me wrong; it's a very creative and fun story that made me burst out laughing: that's all it seems to be meant for and what's wrong with that, eh?

The second pairing in this story was especially delightful. It was the story of a merman who was picked on and teased as a child (by guess who?). His became deep friends with, and found comfort talking to a giant clam at the bottom of the dark, lonely sea. This clam, many years later, upon seeing this merman crying in frustration as an angry adult, wishes for hands to comfort him. Poof! We have your wide-eyed, kind and gentle wee little person.
It was the ultimate kawaii story.

All it in all, it's a predictable story without being boring, a silly story without being plot-less and a clichéd story that is still compelling and strangely fresh. With extensive and very ogle-worthy sexy art scenes with lots of tongue action (although the uke's a bit too much like Twiggy!)

Besides, I can't help but love a gruff merman who has a dacryphilia kink! ROFL! Although, it was oddly sensual when he possessively licks tears of his little crybaby...
