Flowers and Bees 2Posted: May 28, 2005
I know I said in an older review that it wasn’t until Masao beat some better-looking guys in a contest that I started liking the series. It is true that the series is at its best when it’s being nice to Masao, and this volume isn’t particularly nice to him. But this volume I think is really where the series finds itself, because it’s really damn funny.
“You’ll have to excuse me.”
There’s love holes and fake sex and bondage and piercings and plenty of Sakura and Komatsu conversation, there’s lessons and Devil Sisters and dirty jokes, and Yamada getting better looking… this volume is GREAT. It has everything. Apparently God likes to watch, too. This series is at its best when it’s making silly dirty jokes and giving in to lots of sex and akward situations, and that’s all this volume is. It may be cruel to Komatsu… but it does it in the funniest way possible. It knows what’s funny too, and alludes to probably one of the best jokes in the series several times throughout the volume. It just really is great.
