This manga is a series of yaoi short stories:
Finder: Asami catches photographer, Akihito Takaba, taking photos of him and corners Akihito for smexy times as punishment.
Fixer: Akihito gets caught up in the Chinese mafia and Asami has to save him.
Love Lesson: Class President, Takato Ichijo rescues Yusuke Sakurai from a groper on the train and when Ichijo finds Yusuke smoking on the roof of the school, smexy times ensue.
Plants in Love: Mizuno has a crush on his classmate, Hiyama. When Hiyama sees his father and Mizuno’s father together, he thinks they’re lovers and the boys decide to stay at the same hotel as they do and see what they’re up to.
Risky Society: Rei Yukimura is training new recruit Akira Todo for inclusion in the Risky Society but Akira gets injured on his first mission.
This collection was a very quick read and is a nice sampler of yaoi if you’re not looking to dive into a really long series. The art is whispy but sensual and the characters are very easy to tell apart; their looks are very stylized. The amount of non-con or dubious-con is a tedious trope but it’s there (what is WITH that?!). Thankfully, it’s not in all the stories. I’d rate it a pretty solid 3.5 out of 5 since some of the stories left me wanting more since the plot was so interesting.
