While Oya is spoiling Yuri on a trip, a rival gangster Semilio kidnaps Yuri in order to get Oya’s attention.
Ok, well… In a way, I got what I was hoping for – Yuri contemplating the type of life she will have dating a yakuza. Yet, while the kidnaping is the main conflict here, Yuri doesn’t get far passed “I love him even though nearly getting raped and killed is scary.” Ma’am, can you express some further thought to the danger you’re in? I don’t know if I’d just dump the guy but I’d spare more than a passing thought to my safety. Yuri just hops into bed with him and wants to fuck until she feels better. But I guess that’s not the type of story this series is; this is a whirlwind romance with a dangerous guy who’s shamelessly devoted to you. It’s pure fantasy and doesn’t want to take itself seriously. 3 out of 5.

Miwa is an introverted college student that has trouble making friends or finding a girlfriend. When she meets an outgoing and out of the closet Saeko they become fast friends but Saeko suggests they date each other. They join the music club together but Miwa is scared to come out to any of them.
They are both so cute together as they figure things out. Miwa had never been in a relationship before so Saeko has to be patient with her. And this isn’t very graphic; focusing more on our main characters’ emotions. The art is soft and expressive, perfect for these two as they grow closer. 4 out of 5.

This book is the collected strips from the webseries of the same name on Tapas featuring a vampire and a werewolf falling in love.
These who are almost unfairly adorable. As this is a collection of single strips, there is no overarching story other than their general relationship. It’s just Elise and Jimmy being cute and loving in their own twisted and special way. I found it very sweet and I can see reading it multiple times to justify the cover price. 4.7 out of 5.
