I sat down to read the first chapter and didn't put it down until I finished the entire volume. Then I wasted 5 seconds trying to force the page to go forward as if that was going to work. Want volume 2 asap.

Just a good written BL manga with a natural developing relationship.

The Story

Yorozu is a high school boy that lives with his family at a love hotel called Castle Mango and the place is his sanctuary. Until the day that director Togame crashes the hotel to film one of his porn movies. As if being mistaken for one of the actors for the movie, Yorozu also has to watch Togame “hitting” on his young brother, and that was too much.

After a hard party when Togame had too much to drink, Yorozu sets h

Dün veya önceki gün okudum. Hatta bunu yorumlamak istediğim için uzun aradan sonra goodreads'e bakayım bir dedim.

Şirin mangalar severim, smut da severim, ilk aşkta severim. Ama en sevdiğim şey okurken kalbimi küt küt attırması, bazen beni germesi, ana karakterlerin hislerindeki bunalımlarını gerek çizim gerek konu ile yansıtmasıdır.

Bu seri gördüğüm en sıradışı konulardan birine sahip bence. Yani Love Hotel işleten, hatta evi direkt kaçamak oteli olan liseli, çocukluğundan beri en büyük hayali dü

Castle Mango is a really nice story that has a much more original storyline then you typically find in BL manga. Shiro is a very quiet and serious young man in his senior year of high school. His family runs a love hotel and his dream since he was a kid was to expand the business. This dream wasn't supported by teachers etc because of its associated taboo subject but this didn't deter Shiro's dream but made him turn more inward about it.

Togame is the dire

Method acting - you adopt a style/character and you become that. So Shiro who just pretends to be a uke actual ends up...end up. *snicker*

Any whooo, Shiro is a model A student at a prestigious boy school however he is on a scholarship so his grades are everything. He lives in an antiquated love hotel with his mother and little brother called - Castle Mango. Their father had passed away early and both boys are starving for male companionship. Enter a AV production company with a director who's fi

Really, really enjoyed this one. It's got a lot of angst and UST and people not realizing their own feelings. The plot moves kind of slowly but it's nice to relax into a good story once in a while. It was much less tacky than the synopsis suggest with the porn angle.

I just wish the Kindle store had vol. 2. I may have to order both volumes in Japanese to finish it.
K.N.
Maybe it was simple nostalgia or my familiarity with love hotels (hey, they're cheap accommodation and offered a bathtub I didn't have in my apartment), but I really liked this story. The characters are intriguing, the pacing is perfect, and I'm itching to read the next volume. I've only once ever seen a young cute guy in a love hotel office (usually it's old men or middle-aged women), but the whole point of those offices with their little windows are privacy and discretion, so it's not like I'd ...more

It was such a cute story! I really liked the fact that the H-action was not very detailed(because I don't really like those scenes) Togame is a very mysterious guy yet has a big heart, like a teddy bear. Shiro is very quiet and keeps everything bottle up inside. I thing they are very good for each other even if they don't realize it.

I just randomly read it at midnight and that kept me overnight. Deep and touching work.

This is such a lovely book. When I first read the description - adult video director falls in love with the son of a love hotel owner - I thought it had to be pure crack, but in fact it's anything but. It's a really lovely, slow-paced story about two people gradually falling in love with each other, and while there are a few typical tropes, it's done so well that I didn't mind them. The balance between humour and drama is great, too. And there are quite a few scenes that just - stay with you. I ...more

As far as manga boys love goes, this one is a little higher on my list of likes than most. There's no uncomfortable tropes, there's real-life, if unpleasant assumptions made, and the seme isn't a complete ass. In fact, for once, I'm a bit less enamored of the uke and his scheming ways. I guess I can sort of see his reasoning, but there is some real evidence available to him that he's playing with the other man's feelings, yet he continues to mislead him. I'm invested enough to want to see where ...more

It was cute, started a little slow, but simple and sweet. I might read the second volume when it comes out. It was a good, quick read.

This is surprisingly cute? It's like the author decided to use traditional yaoi tropes but in the most low key halfway verging on realistic way possible. It's not a full on deconstruction but it made me smile a few times and I didn't want to set the characters on fire so. :) Cute story bro! If my library picks it up I could be persuaded to read it again. 3 stars

I really enjoy reading this. A great story. This shows a growing relationship between two people, not just having sex, but how a relationship happens. You can see their love growing -both of them- gradually, and realistically. It's my favorite type of storyline.
