I should have known I was in for a good time when I saw the parental advisory warning on the cover. Love Recipe, Volume 01 manages to be completely adorable and vile all at the same time.

You need to be open-minded and have a sense of humor to read yaoi because love and rape go hand in hand in these types of books.

This series really does moe well. I thought Ozawa was so sweet and especially loved
This book takes the yaoi equation rape=love to a new confusing level, but in a cute way.

Featuring a super cute story and lovely character personalities, Love Recipe takes stereotypical yaoi to a level. It features the classic clueless and confused uke and common rape=love equation. It is actually so blatant in the story that it makes you look twice because at first it seems like a dream. However, it does not take an angst-y turn. The fact that it was rape is actually completely ignored, even by
It's a yaoi manga parodying it's own genre!

While you have the stereotypical yaoi romance it's totally owning up to the genre's cliches with a little behind the scenes look at the work that goes into a manga. Don't know how accurate the latter is but the former is spot on!

My favorite part is when the 'uke' couldn't figure out what fonts to use in the manga so the 'seme' jumps him (consent is a huge issue, but it's an issue in the genre as a whole so I like to think of the lack of consent in this

For those who enjoy good comedy and are conversant with manga fandom, this is a fun romp. Yaoi, for those not in the know, is a genre of Japanese manga dealing with homoerotic m/m relationships. Love Recipe is a self-reflexive narrative that examines some of the more humorous elements of yaoi/BL fandom--from thinks like "moe," fangirls, seme/uke dynamics, and yaoi manga creation and production. I found myself laughing quite a bit while reading this light-hearted and cute narrative. Kirico Higash ...more
Bow chicka wow wow!

This was my first boy-boy erotica manga. There were some funny parts but I also found some of the parts disturbing (the rape). This was definitely for a mature audience (it even has a parental advisory/explicit content label on the front). I'm not opposed to reading further in the series, but I'm not desperate to either. I felt it was just full of sex (not the problem) and lacked a plot (this was the problem).
When I first looked at this manga I had no idea what Yaoi was, but after thinking that the summary was interesting. I decided I'll give it a try. I love every bit of this manga, the characters, story plot, and the humor that makes you think of how fun it is to learn how to work harder at your job.

Its an Adult Manga about sexually harassing that happened to Tomonori Ozawa that has just landed a job at a large publishing firm, that catch by the new editor of a Boy's Love magazine!

Originaly review by AnnChan ^^
This is a cute manga,but I do believe that it could have started off a bit more slowly plot wise. Other than that the relationship between the two main characters seems to be plausible and realistic.
I adore this manga, it as so cute and funny and you most defintatly fall in love with the characters.
