Haru visits Canada to spend the summer holidays in the woodland house of his strict, strong-willed mother, Haruko. There, she burdens him with the responsibility of caring for his younger adoptive brother - a wild and unruly little boy named Ren who trusts no-one and prefers to wander in the woods with Haruko's dogs rather than associate other people. Haruko orders Haru to 'civilize' Ren. As the young man strives to teach Ren how to live in human society, their relationship gradually improves - so much so that Haru plans on taking his 'little brother' to Japan with him once he finds a job.
Unfortunately, fate has a cruel habit of interfering with one's plans.

Promising manga but seriously?? I completely forgot it was yaoi when I started reading it. I think this would be better if Ren and Haru didn't went into that kind of relationship at all and just stayed as brother complex duo. I'm usually okay with incest or characters with huge age gap but this just made me kind of comfortable. Though I could say I've read mangas that are weirder than this, super lovers was just plain Pedobear LOL. I mean Ren is like 13?? If Ren was at least 18& up I think this will be tolerable

For some reason this didn't feel like shota to me until I sat back and thought about how old Ren was supposed to be (the age gap is actually really big). His personality and his behavior don't match his age whatsoever. Which if a kid like that really existed, I can't even fathom what he'd be like. He'd probably have no place in society to really belong because he'd have trouble getting along with most people, which is really sad to think about. Anyway, that's not the main point. This was really good from the beginning, but then, I stopped reading it. Maybe it was the combination of slow updates and mind-boggling developments that made me think, "What the heck is wrong with everyone in this series?" I'm not really sure, but I got frustrated and bored with it. It had a lot of potential to be better than the way it developed but then it took a pretty typical path with some unnecessary melodrama. If I'd wanted that, I would have read a shoujo instead. Anyway, it is in fact shota, so read at your own discretion.

Let's just talk about something...

Well, although I understand why people often tends to feel awkward about this manga and its plot, I just want to remember to everyone that this is a fictional work intended to satisfy a certain audience that, let's be honest, wants to satisfy some fujoshi's thirst of kinks and that japanese public (the most relevant public for authors) it's kind of ok with all this and more.
Besides that, the characters are really well developed, the art, as always, is remarkable, and the plot is great.
About the characters, I'm the same age as Haru and I remember just fine when I was Ren's age, maybe because of that it's easier for me to get both sides; first they're not normal people whit normal backgrounds and normal feelings, people this way tend to be attracted to the same kind of person (that's why I like how everyone seems to agree on how similar they both are). Second, it seems that some people thinks Haru's some kind of old fart who's being a horrible adult, I just want to let you know that at 22 people are NOT perfect adults who knows everything, and actually the thoughts Haru has about Ren it's a very realistic way of showing how young adults trouble their minds because they're dating someone too young or too old, his worry about how far he can go with him is the realest thing I've ever saw with a plot with a kinda relevant age gap. Third, kids Ren's age nowadays are parents and it's not surprising teenagers want to have sex or being reassured of they're feelings through sex, let's just not pretend as if all 15/16 year olds are some kind of pure angels fallen from heaven because they're not.
About the plot, the element that makes it interesting is that they're have all kind of REAL LIFE PROBLEMS. It's not just the relationship between Haru and Ren, it's also about them and the twins, the guardians, they're friends. Even if Ren and Haru are some kind of hikikomori/antisocial type, the plot makes us see how they get through everyday life as they met new people; they have also family and school problems beside the 'couple' problems, which just makes it more real than some manga with a happy go lucky plot. People minds are all diferent, complicated and unique, that's what makes this manga interesting enough to follow it.
Sorry for the really big text, as a final statement I just want to make it clear that this is my point of view and I don't intend in any way make you think the same as me (except maybe the part of teenagers being sexually active at young age because that's a fact in pretty much everywhere), so feel free to love age gaps or to feel disgusted by it, and if you don't like it or Ren seems too shota for you, then do you a favor and don't read it !

Okay, here's the thing. I love this manga a lot for the art and the somewhat realistic conflicts that Ren and Haru both have with each other. But I also hate this manga for the relationship progress of the main pairing. REN WAS A KID FOR GODSAKE (not that I'm against shota or anything) BUT OMG HARU YOU CANT JUST DO THAT TO A KID

Halfway reading, it sort of feels as though Ren is inclined to love Haru not only as a brother anymore because as it was stated in the manga itself, Haru had imprinted himself on Ren. I know that Ren has issues but to me, him falling for Haru feels...forced..?

(Spoilers ahead)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Okay so Ren hates kind people, he's scared of them. Haru was the first kind person that ever tried to get close to Ren and it worked. Imagine if it wasn't Haru. Imagine if it was some girl from west canada just like him. Would he feel inclined to fall in love with her too?? What if after Ren returned to Canada without Haru chasing after him? Would he still feel inclined to love him? It's like Ren was forced to love him for the absurd reason of opening the kid up on one fateful summer. I just feel that Haru doesn't understand what he has done to the kid (who is a teenager now btw)

I dunno, maybe it's just me.... Then again, anyone remember Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike?? What if Kyomine never met Takara? Wouldn't he still be chasing Ayako?

Anyway, this manga has upset half its readers but still pleased the other half. I'm on the bridge with it because I don't like where their relationship is going but I'm still reading to see where these two will lead us.

Yes, the MC is a big fat pervert with an ephebophillic love for Ren. Characters in the story are also not reporting statutory rape as they should and his problematic comments have comedic uncomfortable reactions. One could argue that Ren consents and wants it, which is true, but one could also argue imprinting and that Ren never really knew anything else. I'm personally for the former, because we're taken through the story in a way you can obviously see how they fell for each other. Oh, and if anyone ever accuses any objection Ren ever had,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the reason that Ren said no those few times is because he was trying to desperately maintain a brotherly role to Haru because that's what he thought Haru wanted of him. Ren did this because he thought his love for Haru (romantic) and Haru's love for him were not the same. Which was obviously not true, but alas.

That Ren acts like an old man-child is no excuse, but it certainly is a huge reason I can read this. Ren is a very lovable character, and possibly the best kuudere I've ever seen in fiction. Haru is... well. He's trash, but I don't hate him. As much as I'd have liked him to hold out until Ren turned legal age--welp. I guess she didn't want to do the time skip. And also, as a Canadian, I'd really like to insist that people are not kissing monsters there.

If you're fine with reading a story that has that, everything else is literally amazing. The art, the characters, THE WRITING. Dear god. Like, their relationship is /profound/. How Ren so often manages to say things that just shake Haru's heart, especially. Hnngf. It's not just romance romance romance, either. There /is/ focus on sense of belonging, and relationships between the actual brothers, and between Haruka and Ren.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I was actually really glad she didn't go with the typical idealistic "oh your mother abandoned you because she had no choice" and instead went with it more realistically. Oh, and as a child that legitimately despises their mother, I can tell you right now it's 1000% possible to do so.

Basically, only read this if you're capable of separating reality and fiction (and really, young'ns of Ren's age that actually act like that just do not exist) and have no intention of letting this impact you in a way that'd lead you to harm minors. ...Unless you are a minor, in which case, I'm pretty sure depends as long as both consenting parties are of legal age? Not that you should be reading this at all, but I have no right to tell you off for it. (cough)

Like other comments are saying, the beginning of Super Lovers is REALLY promising! I loved the peaceful, idyllic ambiance of the first few chapters. But as I kept reading and Ren still looked SO YOUNG, I kept wishing that this was not a yaoi manga. If Super Lovers had ended up being only the first 5 chapters with an ending where Ren, thanks to the unconditional care by his big brother, opened up and had a new outlook on life - with NOTHING beyond a platonic relationship - I would've been pretty pleased. It would've been heartwarming and cute.

Buuuut instead, I kept getting more and more uncomfortable with the relationship between Ren and Haru until I dropped the manga after chapter 5. Even then, I still felt like I had read too much. Age gaps are fine, sometimes great - when the characters are older. Ren is just too young, and the dynamic between him and Haru just echoes pedophilic groomic a little too strongly. Haru's behavior towards like a 14 year old (and younger) boy just freaked me out too much. (And at one point, one of the characters rationalizes that after watching a 23 and 15 year old - QUOTE - "sucking face," it's not weird or alarming because they're "Canadian." Okay.)

BEAUTIFUL art and panel layouts as well as a very promising beginning - but the relationship between Ren and Haru just made me a little too uncomfortable.

There aren't many yaoi manga out there with a completely original plot. Super lovers is a typical yaoi story but I just love the art work and characters. Ren is adorable. People say this manga is overrated but that is the only word hipsters know. Super lovers isn't perfect. It has its flaws but it keeps me reading. If you like cute fluffy stories then you should read this one

Am I reading the same manga as some others do?? Shallow characters?? Really? I can totally relate to their feelings and I do think that there are visible character developments. This story really got me tearing up at many parts; it portrays the loneliness of both characters really well and their past explains why they rely on each other so much. And when did it get repetitive? Sure there are always some misunderstandings and then they make up, but that's life? Rather than typical manga cliches, I don't mind reading 100+ "repetitive" chapters if they are written well. But well, each to their own.
I totally enjoy reading it and it will always have a special place in my heart.

I find this story very well done. It's not like other yaoi stories where the uke and seme just jump straight to sex, it actually takes it's time to develop the characters. I find the characters very unique. The art work is beautiful, as expected of Abe Miyuki sensei. this is not a shotacon or pedophile because Rin is still growing. the only problem i have with this is the slow updates. overall, i think it is one of the best yaoi/shounen ai story there is.

Like everyone else said, it started out quite promising. I started the first chapter years ago and it really made me believe this was going to be close to la masterpiece or something, so I saved it for later(I tend to do that for some reason)... but wow this was quite disappointing now that I've actually read it. Just combination of all the story flaws is really unfortunate, the story goes no where, the characters really need some more dimension to make the premise more relatable, but instead the reader gets alienated and is left to believe that this is simply pedophilia. Another problem is just
... the storytelling is not very engaging in my opinion. I have read much dumber stories without struggling to pay attention.... Its just very unfortunate because the situation and cast is pretty great, if only they could have been used to their potentisl.
