This week for Sensate Saturday I’ve got another Quick Review! It’s Happy Sugar Life by Kagisora Tomiyaki!
Plot Synopsis: High-schooler Matsuzaka Sato has a reputation for being easy, but one day her lifestyle of being intimate with one boy after another comes to an end. It happens when she meets the young girl Shio…
Plot: This is a fairly interesting series, and I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it quite so much just based off the title. That being said I’ve only read the first chapter so I might end up not liking the series, but so far I’ve found it to be very different from other Shoujo Ai series. I won’t say anymore because it’ll spoil it for you, but I’ll be continuing to read this series.
Characters: Sato is a really intriguing lead character, I’d really like to see what makes her tick, but since it’s just the first chapter I’ll have to wait for later chapters. Shio on the other hand is a truly innocent girl who is carefree and quite adorable. She reminds me of my own baby sister, if not quite as rambunctious as my sister.
Art: I honestly thought this might be published by Shueisha given the quality of the art, but it’s another Square Enix publication.
Overall: This isn’t like other series you’ll have read, so give this first chapter a shot. I know I’ll be continuing to read the series.
For those who like: Drama, Romance, Slice of Life, School Life, Interesting Plot, Intriguing Lead Character, Excellent Artwork.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
P.S. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve.
This week for Sensate Saturday I’ve got another Quick Review. It’s Uramikoi Koi Uramikoi by Aki Taka!
Plot Synopsis: The Twelve City, a land governed by the leaders of the families who bear in their names the Chinese zodiac. In a city where youkai and humans coexist, the cat youkai who holds a grudge against the Rat Family appears in front of Nekuni Kyouichi, the head of the Rat Family. It’s a malice-covered Hateful cat who is aiming for his life.
Plot: The plot is pretty tame, and it’s definitely got a romantic slant, which is kind of nice without so much the Romantic Comedy. So far I’m pretty interested in the series and I’ll get around to reading the whole thing soon.
Characters: Kyouichi and Natsuho are our two leads, and it’s fairly obvious that they’re attracted to each other, even if they don’t realize it. The rest of the small cast we get to meet in this first chapter is pretty great, with Ayaka and Sana being the two standouts side characters.
Art: If I didn’t know for a fact that this wasn’t running in Jump, I would’ve thought it was from the quality of the artwork which is superb. It’s got amazing linework and detailing and is all around one of the better looking Shonen Romance series I’ve read.
Overall: Giving the tentative go ahead, I’m hooked and hopefully it doesn’t lead me astray.
