Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies. I was browbeat into buying this by a pushy con book seller and damn it was a good thing because I had forgotten this little gem. Once long ago I had a scanlation of it and I am very grateful that I was able to purchase it.

It's about a bear, a cat and a kitten (a real one not a metaphor). A cat, Chihiro Takahashi, finds an abandoned kitten then that poor little thing gets sick and the cat runs around in a blind panic looking for a vet. Enter the bear...more

This gets 4 stars for the cat. Really. The romance was pretty standard but every scene with the cat was comedy gold.

"Beware bear sightings."

That sentence really had me laughing which is probably pretty sad but it appealed to my humour and my humour obliged the writing with laughter. Seriously though, it was a good book. I was so super glad I didn't have to deal with the usual "I'm running away, so come after me and we can have rainy reunion where you confess loving me" thing. That honestly gets very old very fast. The art style does change a little bit as you go but that's not too noticeable. (For me, I manag...more

Another manga I'd been looking forward to, but this time I wasn't disappointed. I've long since suspected that manga that have cats in them automatically deserve at least one star more - because cats just add about 1000% cuteness.

"Honey Darling" doesn't have the deepest story or most multifaceted characters, but it's fun and cute and a great light read. It also teases at the usual BL tropes - omiai, one person wanting to leave to hide the fact they've fallen for the other etc. - without actually...more

My two main points about this manga:

1. The art: this mangaka is just a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I can totally understand why two straight guys as Kuma-sensei and Chii will get gay for the other. They are hot. And I don't mean "cute" (although Chii is, a LOT). They are just beautiful, in a Japanese style. I also like that the mangaka add the cat-ears to Chii every time he is angry.

2. It is more sweet than smutty: This volume has 8 chapters, and nothing happens in the first 7 chapters. By "nothing" I mean it...more

I'm finding myself in a manga phase again for the first time in years, and for some reason in a yaoi phase -- which I normally don't read only because this subgenre tends to get kind of rapey.

So when I found this book -- with a totally consensual relationship, a stand-alone story, and actual character/romance development ~*~swoon~*~

Loved Kuma the bear (heh) and Chihiro and of course Shiro, the homeless little kitten who brings them together. As the author notes, it's not really boys' love manga...more
Lissa
A very sweet couple. Story line was a bit contrived, but we'll executed. My only real problem was as is common, the whole gay for you thing. Neither man was originally gay but they end up in a relationship anyway. But I really love Sensei's art.
Cat
This is a fun, light read and can easily be one of those titles that is reread from time to time. The story isn't anything super original but the way the emotions and events are handled do it justice. There's no 'super' drama or 'evil' characters placed in the story just to stir things up. Instead we're treated to a more honest view of how Chihiro and Kumazawa meet and fall in love.

The artwork is gorgeous and, though Chihiro is a bit weepy and over-expressive sometimes, both characters are very...more

I got this comic based on a blog recommendation, and I'll admit, it was pretty cute! Just your basic BL fluff, and don't worry, Chihiro (the one with the cat-ear jacket) doesn't act the way he looks: an insipid mouth breather. This is a comic that has better art on the inside than the outside!
Ashley Cox
"For the record this is a boy's love story!" An adorable manga about a stray kitten, a 'cat, and a 'bear'.
Monika Robinson
A cute story. Although they keep using the term wife for the uke.
Aiko
Ok story - lovely art.
