10Endearing little ecchi fare. >>> by skysenshi (01.19.2014)

For the last half decade, I had been on the lookout for seinen and josei titles along the lines of Yoshihara Yuki’s humor. For some reason, I ended up stumbling upon this manga. I nearly forgot its title, so I thought I should at least post about it here so that I’d never forget again.

Anyway, about the manga itself: For those who are after hardcore stuff, Koi wa Misoji is not what you’re looking for. This is sorta fluffy in a way that the virginal boy moons over the mature woman even though she has become jaded. It’s funny, sweet, thoughtful and endearing. Dare I say, cute? Made me wonder if this really were written and drawn by a guy (not to be sexist but most Japanese erotic media tend to be misogynist). It might not be obvious, because the couple seems to go at it after every three pages of story, but the character development is pretty good considering this is a short series.

This also deals with work-related stress and maybe a few of the pressures of young adult life. I could even understand both Uehara’s and Yamada’s dilemmas because of the age gap and the differences in life experiences. Goes to show that insecurities don’t really end in high school.

Admittedly, I wasn’t too fond of the art, and I hate Yamada’s hair, but I guess that just adds to its endearing appeal.
