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.
