For so long, I've only had one-sided feelings for other people. I've completely forgotten how good it feels to be loved.

Sweet little cameramen and runaway guy? lol XD it would do.

I'm a big fan of Hinako Takanaga--beautiful artwork, male characters who (generally) read realistically male and engaging dialogue. All of this holds true in "Liberty Liberty!" even if it is one of her lighter/fluffier works.

Itaru is a creative writing student who dropped out of university and ran away from home after a plagiarism scandal made him lose his confidence in his own writing. He ends up face-down and dead drunk in a garbage heap outside a bar in Osaka one night, where the cool, casua

Pretty fluffy, a light, pleasing and inoffensive read.

Itaru and Kouki fit that mold where one's clearly an adult man and a bit of a loner in some ways and the other's an enthusiastic but somewhat clueless/clumsy young boy who can't quite take care of himself. Very different body types, eyes and apparel. A big trend, also with the younger boy tending to rely on the older man for financial help. But in theory, Itaru's 20, so...he's not meant to actually BE a young boy. In this case, other than Ita

This is one of the BL titles that I love simply for its diversity from the normal flow. Is the uke character sweet and small? Yes. Is the seme character a bit stoic and bigger? Yes. But that's about all that is the same when compared to the standards of things.

Itaru (uke) is much more self-assured when it comes to the relationship that starts between himself and Kouki (seme). He's the first to tell Kouki his feelings, the first to initiate things, and the first to crave more while Kouki wrestles

This was just a pretty average story. The artwork is not as great as Awkward Silence, though all right.

This one is about a photographer who ends up taking in a stray—a guy who has no place left to go, and ends up staying with the photographer. He ends up working for their cable company, then getting a job of his own, and stays as a roommate. The photographer has a female friends who was nice, and pushy enough for them.

The romance is very slow here, especially since the photographer doesn’t t

Die Geschichte ist ganz süß, ein typischer Boy-Romance Manga halt. Koki, ein Kameramann, findet einen betrunkenen Jungen (Itaru) auf der Straße. Er nimmt ihn mit nach Hause und gibt ihm einen Job in seiner Firma. Daraus entwickelt sich dann natürlich mehr.
Der Manga ist ab 15 und mehr als küssen passiert hier auch nicht. Es ist einfach eher niedlich.
Der Zeichenstil gefällt mir unglaublich gut. Die Charaktere sind sehr niedlich und dieses Mal auch gut zu unterscheiden.

Meine Wertung:
4 von 5 Sternen
Sweet and interesting story. Itaru is so adorable!

Read it on scanlation by the title Liberty Liberty!. Maybe the first Hinako Tanakaga manga that I read, and make me hunts for more of her works.
If only they did more than a kiss, I'd give 5...

Not as awesome as her other works (like Koisuru Boukun or Bukiyou na Silent) but still pretty good. It is really cute, I need to say.
