Aitsu no Daihonemei by Tanaka Suzuki is about a poor ordinary kid (rather short, not very good looking, not very smart, but a nice guy) who is pursued by the most popular boy in school. It's a case of a boy who likes to be mean to the object of his affections, a story that can so easily be pushed to a bad place. Unfortunately, this one totally went too far for me.
There are some cute moments, but there are too many instances of the seme just being out and out mean. He causes all the girls in the school to bash the uke, causing the poor uke much distress. Why? I could only think that the seme is just a bastard. I wanted the uke to flee, leaving behind his traitorous heart that thumps for the seme, cruelty and all. Why can't ukes just be allowed to roam free without bastard semes harassing them? Especially the simple-minded ones, they are so harmless (if annoying half the time). Oh well.
I don't feel like putting up the parts that pissed me off, so I'll just post some of the stuff I did like from the manga.
Uke lies that he'd kissed someone before and turns on the seme's mean possessive side. Uke is unable to endure the seme's attack...
A guy who thinks of the seme as rival tries to steal the uke (though he has a hard time getting into the right mindset for sex while the uke is just confused and freaked out), but the seme comes to save the uke. I laughed at these panels where the seme just beats the shit out of the "rival," is about to strangle the guy but is held back by the uke, so simply flings the "rival" out like so much garbage. XD;
