Not For the Faint of Heart - Samejima-Kun and Sasahara-Kun Review

So I picked this up more based on the description than the cover, because that cover doesn't do the book justice at all. First off, it gives entirely the wrong idea of which guy is into the other at first, and it also just makes them seem kind of creepy. Fear not, the interior art I found much more appealing, and this is a book that I found so adorable. It is cute. It is so cute. I can hardly describe the cuteness of this book, whe

I'm very, very picky with my Yaoi these days. I'm not satisfied with typical storylines, shoddy plot and mediocre art. Sex can get me to read something, but it won't get me to buy it. I need substance, heart and endearing quirks. I need something that pulls me into the story and the characters and has me rooting for them from the start. I need to care.

I got all of that with Samejima-kun & Sasahara-kun, gosh, did I ever.

The story itself doesn't sound very interesting; Samejima and Sasahara wo

So I picked this up because the summary seemed to be promising me an idiots in love story and those are one of my favourite types of romances. Happily that is exactly what I received. :D What an incredibly awkward pair of human beings. So much conversation and step backs and awkward interactions of awkwardness. It was GR8. I didn't even skip the sex scenes, that's how much I liked their dynamic.* 3.5 stars

*(see the thing about yaoi is it is full of extremely gross relationship tropes that always

I love Koshino's stories! Others may bitch about her artwork, but I love it! The art completely fits in with the characters and the stories they're portrayed in.

A really enjoyable story about two friends who slowly become lovers. Unlike with "Dear Green", there's a heavy emphasis on the comedy, and there's a lot of bickering. But the artist did a great job capturing the awkwardness that arises when a relationship changes. There also were no clearly defined uke and seme roles, which I always like. The art, though, wasn't that great, but considering that the story was so much fun I didn't mind that so much.
I've been going to and fro wondering whether I s

I very rarely buy BL manga I haven't read before because so much of it is so terrible, but the synopsis of this one sounded really promising so I took the plunge -- and it really delivered! The characters are likable and actually fairly realistic (I have to give the translator props for their natural-sounding dialogue as well) and it just isn't your typical brooding-seme-and-weeping-uke dynamic at all. Seeing the two main characters awkwardly work their way toward a relationship is heartwarming, ...more

Totally hilarious! Often the transition from friends to lovers are made to look so easy in most books. This was NOT like that at all! Samejima-Kun and Sasahara-Kun was a story where forsaking friendship for the pleasure of passion isn't all it's cracked up to be.

The story was pretty cute, cookie cutter standard, but cute--even if the two main characters spent 80% of the book yelling at each other. The art style of this one really put me off. The hollow eyes bothered me more than it should have.
