Tango no Otoko

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

Yaoi enthusiasts - if you haven't read this manga you are REALLY missing out on something awesome!

This mangaka knows the human anatomy and has researched on Tango well. She has not put in sex scenes just for the heck of it (although they are plenty and just too hottt!!!), but has spun an interesting story with appealing characters that develop as the plot progresses. This is yaoi at it's best yet!

Add the muscles of Bara, the drama and inner turmoil of yaoi, and the eroticism not found anywhere else, and you got this.

The topic of Tango, as previous reviewers had said, is a really refreshing thing to read too.

The only negative points I can give is: a) the mangaka need to draw more female bodies, b) the manga, at times, feels....quite confusing. Or maybe that's just me.

The ending is good too, in a way. Not necessarily the 'happily evah AFTAH' so wearily used, but still implies the same happiness.

that was a very good manga. the artwork was rough and nice. the story was realistic and adult-like. this do the justice to gay relationships. the theme of tango was interesting (like ladyAOI i had never hit upon this theme in a yaoi manga before). besides you can't really tell who is who in this relationship and THAT is refreshing (getting fed up with the girly uke whose sensitive body is so made to be lovED).

note this isn't really yaoi, you call it rather bara: BL stories written mostly by gay men and aimed at a gay male audiance. Yep 'cause there is a lot of muscles and body hair in this story^^)
have fun reading it.

Everything I love in Yaoi, without the stuff I hate. It's more than I've ever asked for. Realistic relationships with amazing drawings and great dialogue. Okadaya-sensei has just made a new lifelong fan. biggrin

all I can say is WOW..the art is beautiful and not just the smutty parts (O.~). I've read a lot of yaoi but never one with a tango theme it was a refreshing change although the whole "I'm not gay but I sleep with men" thing came up BUT it doesn't ruin it at all. Very manly and I mean manly looking guys here. I really do hope this cont to be's just a fun and smexy read!
