Chifumi Ochi – Yaoi Generation – 2009 – 5 volumes
While I thought the first volume was only okay, the second volume really hooked me. The biggest problem I had with the first was the strange and slow-moving story, but that begins to work well here as the characters slowly and awkwardly begin to get a feel for one another, and their relationship stops being so creepy and starts turning itself around.
Not much is said about the change, or really between the two characters at all, but the meetings stop being so forced and slightly more passion creeps into their encounters. Neither one understands the change at this point, but the mushy stuff will probably be in another volume or two. Probably after the coming storm, meaning that Arata’s twin brother Ten has found out about his recent extracurricular activities and is going to do something sinister to get his favorite “pet” back. “Pet” in this context meaning that Ten is the only one that likes to be close to Arata… not that there’s anything sexual going on. Thank God.
There’s not too much else to say about it. Lots of character development this time around, and it made for some great reading. Looks like there’ll probably be more plot as things are shaken up next time, and I’m really looking forward to it.
