Oh, how I’ve awaited this day. The Merry Checker tankoubon has an impending 1/25 release, so I’m prepping an order to get this into my greedy, grabby hands ASAP. I like Suzuki Tsuta, but she outdid herself in Merry Checker, which is a spin-off of her title Sangen Tonari no Tooi Hito. There’s the analytical, but feisty Shio. And Miya, who is a big, cuddly, unassuming teddy bear–until he doesn’t want to be. Both guys are very two different flavors, but both ridiculously hot. Suzuki Tsuta really knows how to draw attractive, black-haired guys wearing the deadly suit/glasses combination–and Shio isn’t even my favorite here!
The cover is quite cute. I love the alternating orange/green and the dots! This is one of my more anticipated BL tanks in a long time.
