I read Bikke’s manga Shinkuu Yuuusetsu and while I enjoyed it, it felt kind of like a cocktease.
Or not enough cocks were teased, I don’t know /shot It’s pseudo-BL, driven more by a plot device that requires physical intimacy for survival versus boys simply wanting to kiss other boys. Of course, they kinda want to kiss each other anyway.. hence the teasing part. Since that was a bit frustrating, I’m excited for her new release Senpai, a honest-to-goodness BL manga that ran in Opera.
The story appears to be about the trials of adolescence. You have the two characters, Kakitsubara Saki and Fujinami Kou. The older Fujinami approached Kakitsubara one day and even though they’re in different grades and clubs, they end up spending more and more time together. However, Fujinami seems to be caught up in a troubled past that will surely be a big source of teenage angst.
While there’s not much in the short description they give, I have some faith in Bikke’s execution after Ame Nochi Hare and Aka no Sekai. So I’m looking forward to grabbing this one soon. Bikke BL, yay~
