Description
Run as fast as you can, because he turns into a dangerous beast when he is off-duty!
(From Aerandria Scans)

#1: Casual Encounter with a Beast
Watanabe Hanna is a carefree girl and a slowcoach. All of the men she'd dated till now had told her off and then dumped her because of her leisureliness. This made Hanna totally lose her self-confidence. On lonely nights, she finds pleasure in casual sex with random people. After being transferred to the Third Sales Department from the General Affairs Department of Yamabato Confectionery company, can her new co-worker Ogata Kaito restore her self-confidence?

#2: Two Beasts
Koizumi is the developer of private brands of Yamabato Confectionery and she is very particular about the quality of ingredients being used for the production of sweets. Her co-workers are often uncooperative with her as they deem her as high-headed and inflexible because of her concern to maintain high-quality products. But seems like there is someone in her office who always pulls strings behind-the-scenes to help her out...

#3: The Invincible Beast
Rira likes strong men. She doesn't like those half-assed strength, men use to play with women and to use them for their advantage. She wants a life partner who would be able to use strength and would also love her unconditionally. Will her dream come true or will she be ditched in love again?

#4: The Egoist's Sweet Trap
Ishidou Akira is the ace of the Sales Department. In order to get his hands on deals or women, he doesn't hesitate to cause trouble for others. At a wedding party, Sara- a girl who cannot lie, spots Ishidou embracing the company director's wife. Seems like Ishidou can't leave Sara alone after that!

Rating factors unrealized potential

As in the actual carry-through was atrocious. What kinda fake feminist drivel is this?

Tbh, these chapters are really not worth the time I'm probably about to spend picking apart the misogynistic constructs underlying the advertising of a realistic josei with strong, independent female leads.

But here are some quotes from the male leads (I'll try to resist going into too much detail & getting rant-y):

- "I told you. I'm dangerous tonight. Let me see you take -this- easy."
In a scene featuring aggressive sex wih the female participant being manhandled and passively being screwed with her eyes closed. This is apparently supposed to be a good representation of female fantasies, as this is how the sex is in all four stories. "Beastly" men who take what they want during sex is the only way this mangaka seems to be able to depict her male leads.

- "I can't stand to take it easy and gently with you!" "I'll do it harder than any man you've dated before." Uhh. If hearing these lines before or during sex is a turn on, you have issues.

- "At work he's a gentleman, but in bed... He's a violent and gentle beast." I'm pterodactyl screeching over here. Quietly.

- "I normally want to be able to think my man surpasses me." "...impaling me mercilessly...triumphant face of domination..." "The man who always defeats me, the finest man in the world." Gagging. The story these quotes are from is the worst offender, but all of these stories are guilty of Strong-Women-want-men-to-dominate-them-deep-down-inside. Reminiscent of the All Amazons Want Hercules trope, as well as the Best Her to Bed Her trope. All are based on the idea that women naturally need to be or feel inferior to men.

- "If you hate it, try running away for real." "I will erase any mark any other man has left on you!" "But that's solely your problem. I'll do whatever I want." "Now that things have gone this far, you can't run away anymore. You are mine." First of all, how do none of these men look benign during sex? Even their smiles are sweaty & sleazy smirks. Second, well...if you have gotten this far, and don't find these quotes creepy, I have nothing more to say.

In general, these stories are like looking into the delusional mind of an abusive lover, a rapist or a stalker, and seeing/hearing what he thinks or wishes were happening.

Neither the female nor male leads (who were harlequin caricatures, btw) were realistic or likable, and every story had terribly regressive themes underlying the progressive "career women with libidos" facade.

I'm out, never to return again.

The stories wasnt bad, but could have been better, but it were only one-shots so its okay. The art was not bad, tho i didnt like their lips =.o then somehow the main girls were kinda similiar in a way. The sex scenes were fine. All in all its good to read when bored.

Sharp and edgy romantic smut

The smut isn't as racy as Katsumoto generally does it, but it's enough to establish the personalities of the men and sort of fits in the role... (maybe, given the general mature feel of the romance).

The romances are interesting coz they're not entirely predictable. There are almost always multiple contenders for a women's affections and you'll be surprised at the turn of events in certain cases.

I enjoy a good smut *blushes at her admittance* so haha...if you are looking for that...it really isn't, but there IS smut and there IS something to it...well I thought so.

I agree with Pocky...the women are strong and they don't cry at every little thing. It was like a split...strong, but also womanly...ya know. So they were perfect. smile Yay! I like unperfect people since I'm one of those, too! smile The guys wink go them! haha

I don't typically review one shots because they're usually short, to the point and lack any real drama which make them good quick reads, but unworthy of any critique, however, I felt like reviewing this one.
I liked it. The sex got a little frustrating and it wasn't good smut like Hapi Mari or Midnight Secretary, but I'm not focusing on that since typically I find it unnecessary in most mangas on account of it not being executed well.
Oh, I'm getting side tracked, the thing I REALLY liked about this manga were the women. They weren't whiny girls that went crying to a guy. They had their one-night stands, moved on, had their own little problems to deal with, were efficient, and managed to get the attention of equally competent men,

When I say realistic, I don't mean the plot, but the feelings.They're strong and able women, are still prone to a little self-hate and depression, but they still get off their asses and keep moving. And the guys were brilliant, competent, handsome and always looking out for their girls even when the status of their relationship is a little hazy.
And that's why I thought I should drop a review so more people could read.
