Flowers and Bees 2

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.

    I’m glad to see you like it. I’ve seen very little comment on this series, possibly because it’s older, but it’s so great and I’m happy it’s not just me who likes it ^_^

    Yeah, I just ordered the last 2 volumes in Righststuf Viz sale special and I’m glad I did because volume 4 is already out of print and there will probably be more soon..

    You know, one book from Moyoco Anno was enough for me to know that I want to have all her manga! ;-) And I’m sure not disappointed so far.. maybe a little bit with Happy Mania but I’ve read only 2 volumes so far.

    I liked Happy Mania, but I really convinced myself to like Happy Mania the entire time I was reading it. I didn’t really appreciate it until I got to the end and looked back, and in retrospect I could appreciate most of it a lot more. It’s good, but it’s still probably the weakest of her work available in English. Flowers and Bees is the best, though.
