Tango no Otoko  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Angie, though hailed as "The Man of Tango," had never truly felt the deep, fiery passion of Latin dance. That is, until he met Hiro, a man born from a Latin mother, who was under his Japanese grandfather's custody and now lives as a Japanese citizen. Now, a slow, seething desire begins to rock his body and soul! At first feeling a nostalgic familiarity toward the Latin dancer, Hiro finds himself drawn into the seductive beat of a Latin dance, opening his body and heart to the smoldering heat of his Tango partner.

Love is displayed in the step of the tango. They are stories of loved dancers in the tango.

Note on scanlation completion: SuBLime's North American release includes an epilogue and the "pilot" oneshot that were not in the original Japanese tankobon

Not my cup of tea (and not because of the bara-ish vibe)

As an Argentine I thought I'd enjoy this manga. Well, I didn't. Of course there are parts I enjoyed but I think the whole loving tango and stuff was too exaggerated and at the same time not realistic. I'm not saying there aren't any people who are crazy about tango, I'm just saying this representation wasn't realistic for me. By the way they seemed to dance it looked more like ballroom dance than Argentine tango (opposite to what they claim it to be) and I find Angie the typical latin lover, not the typical Argentine. So, yeah, I guess it could be fun to read to someone else, but I did not find it sexy or appealing at all.

Tbh, I expected a totally different story but I was pleasantly surprised. It's way more mature than your average BL. I'm not used to the bara men, all muscled and hairy, but I really liked it. I've found it to be more "real". The plot progresses steadily and it's not rushed or slow, just perfect.
I loved the characters, although I found Angie hard to understand. Hiro was my fav <3!
The lemon scenes were very detailed and hot but there are not many, just a couple. I think it was enough, it's more about the story than the sex.

I recommend this manga if you want to try something different.

There's some pretty hot art at some points, and I loved the relationship between Angie and whatsherface (I read this a while back). Read for something a little different - although its bara, I don't think it's your typical bara manga, maybe a good one for beginners?

xxx Angie is so sexy xxx

although i'm not really into bara, but this one is pretty good, just that the story lack of spices inside it and the development kind of happened too fast. if only the story get a little more twisted, it will be more interesting.

Manly men biggrin yay!!! I liked the story. For such a big guy Hiro is really cute XD and I disagree with the comment below, his girlfriend was horrible, it was good he broke up with her.
If you are into pretty and girly characters then this manga isn't for you bigrazz The characters here are manly and full of muscle ^-^

Now personally, these type of guys, who are either hairy of so muscular it's to the point of steroids is not my thing, but if you're up for that, then go for it. The art is fantastic, the mood is sensual and seductive, the dancing is sexy, and the sex is DETAILED. Like everything is uncensored. For yaoi fans like me, that's great, but the fact that the men are not my type kind of takes away from it a little bit for me. I like bishounen or muscular without bulging out and no body hair. But still, this is definitely well done and unique.

I LOVED this, it´s so refreshing reading something new from time to time instead of just wasting energy on yaoi with repeatable plots.
The plot is original and something that really gets you hooked, and the art is simply breathtaking. You can see that the mangaka had an eye for detailes and I was really amazed that she could both draw and explain the tango steps with such simplicity (which is good, because Tango is a complicated artform by my opinion).

I couldn´t help but feel that Hiro is very naive in some ways, but that didn´t make me feel annoyed or bored, it made me feel rather exited. Because with Hiros naivitey and Angies sexyness, you couldn´t expect what was going to happen next.

he is the biggest hypocrite i have seen in awhile, he dumps his girlfriend of two years for cheating, when he just finished having sex with another guy, WHATconfused sure he was drunk, but everyone knows they lose control when drunk, and he chose to drink so its not an excuse.

as everyone's comments have been, this one is a refreshing manga from all the standard yaoi stories and pairings out there. I never really appreciated 'bara' when it comes to yaoi because I feel like there's too much beef going around if you know what I mean. But this one carried the gentleness and femininity quite right, it's not too much 'bara' and doesn't border much on ridiculous feminity (as we can all see upon many uke archetypes).

Give it a try!

Deux Press - What a Shame!

Excellent manga!
Such a shame that Deux / Aurora Publishing can't release this as scheduled (T__T). It would probably have been the first Bara manga to be widely available through mainstream book retailers.
In the meantime, thank you Nakama.
