Happy Boys 1

December 27, 2009

Makoto Tateno – DokiDoki – 2009 – 1+ volumes

I reviewed this for Manga Recon, so you can check it out over there.

While Happy Boys is certainly a stupid title for a series, and I fear bad BL books like the plague (most of the truly negative reviews I’ve written have gone to BL books that have deserved it), this one wasn’t bad.  I liked it, even though it was sort of light and insubstantial.  It’s a slice-of-life volume with nice stories, though I didn’t get into the characters as much as I would have liked.

Also, it’s not even close to being BL, though the entire thing reads like it really should be.  Seriously.  I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and for one guy to get into someone else’s pants the entire time, and it just never happened.  Bravo, Happy Boys.
