I really hate how much my time has been sucked up by RL...I haven't been able to write up posts or respond to comments or anything this past week. I was hoping to take the weekend to get down and post, but it looks like I will be busy with other things. So I figured I'd make some time tonight for a quick post on a manga I've been meaning to talk about for a while...
The manga Bokura ni matsuwaru etc by Kuyugo basically consists of two stories. The first features the two students on the cover. I found it to be rather bland, mostly because the characters did not interest me at all. The story is very conventional, but I barely noticed it while yawning at the blah-ness of the characters. The other is about a scruffy divorced guy and the young adorable guy who is found half-dead (from getting totally lost trying to find scruffy divorced guy's house...even though it's like a stone's throw away from the train station) and ends up staying there. It's a simple (and predictable) story but it has the exact type of romantic relationship I love. XD There's just something about a grumpy older guy and an earnest and awkward younger guy that really works for me.
Scruffy guy and young adorable guy:
And to be completely gratuitous, the pretty pretty back cover:
The sad thing is, I'm not sure who he is...Not that I really care if he's some random hot guy. I appreciate eye candy very deeply.
