Die Kurzgeschichten konnten mich nicht wirklich vom Hocker reißen aber doch ganz gut unterhalten. Der Zeichenstil war auch eher altbacken und mittelmäßig.
Eine der Geschichten war wirklich extrem kitschig.
Die ersten beiden Kurzgeschichten handelten vom gleichen Pärchen und haben mir am besten gefallen. Es hat mich ein wenig an Pretty Little Women halt in Yaoi erinnert.
Alles in allem also ganz nett aber nichts was heraussticht.

I actually liked the stories in this book. The first story is about Kazuto that wakes up in bed with a hangerover and he is with another guy Takasugi. He doesn't remember anything from the night before but he has sold himself to Takasugi for an certain amount of money. All Takasugi wants is for him to spend time with him over the next month. They go to different places and have a nice time out. Will these two fall for each other while spending time together.

The next story is about two teenage b

Contrast and conflict are winning parts of any drama and especially so with the boy’s love genre of yaoi. As with a lot of yaoi manga, the emphasis in Lover’s Pledge is on youth: shy, naïve, foolish boys being tutored by older, wiser men. However, in a couple of the stories, the age difference is not so great. The semes [tops or dominants] only seem much older than the ukes [bottoms or submissives] by way of their cool, aloof or strict natures.

Ukes aren’t necessarily passive or limp characters;

First read in 2007 but again I had no memory of how I liked it so I re-read it (September 2016). It's neat for a volume of short stories and I liked the first one the best. I liked this whole volume more than "Secret Contract" which I re-read a few days ago and gave 3 stars to but I guess it is still in a 3-stars-range, if that makes sense because 4 seem too much. ...more
