Author/Illustrator: Puku Okuyama
Genre: Yaoi? I suppose incidentally it is.
Rating: 16+ YA, but really doesn't need to be (zero sex or sexual situations)
|Cover: Kosuke (Ham-chan) on Raku (Luck)'s shoulders |
as Raku steals his chips. These boys are goofballs!
On a side note there is something about Kosuke (Ham-chan)'s gestures and personality that reminds me of Ms. Shakespeare. Some of it may be the way he hyperactively panics before over-rationalizing and putting on a stoic face. Some of it may be because she is kind of adorable. See exhibit A and B below:
|On the left the adorable Ms. Shakespeare and surly Dr. M battling for the only copy of a manga!|
On the right Ham-chan and his ex-girlfriend race to school to prove who is faster!
It really does look like us.
This really is one of the most honest seeming yaoi manga I've ever read. Okuyama has really captured that swoony-sick feeling that accompanies a timid sort of love. It is well worth a read if only to re-experience that feeling again. Oh...adorable (just wanted to type it once more).
