My Thoughts


Review covers 47 chapters 

Hello everyone! Welcome back to Katie’s Corner. Today I’ll be covering my favourite smut manga. First of all this manga is for mature audience. Mostly all smut mangas are 18+, however, minami Kanan draws everything with a lot of sensuality and hotness, leaving only bits to our imagination. And well, her stories are amzng, both with the plot and the drawing. To be honest, this manga is my favourite of all mangas by Minami Kanan. I think I have read it about 10 times by now. And every time I read it as if I’m just starting it.

But let’s get back to the story. You may think that it is another boring story about a poor girl and a rich boy, however, that’s not all there is. Our heroine – Yuzuru is a normal high school girl, who during summer-break worked at a hotel. Everything would have been great, if not some bad tempered customers. The worst part is that these customers are from Yuzurus’s school, and from the elite class. Meet our Hero – Kai Renge, the biggest pervert and sadist ever. But nevertheless you just can’t not fall in love with him. Even through in the beginning you just want to kill him very soon he will show his good sides. Well, the appearance of a villain also helps to acknowledge Kai as the good guy.

Yuzuru is something extraordinary. Well, she is just your dumb girl with a nice body and a good character. Why is she dumb? Come on, even when I was first reading I already sensed something fishy as soon as one character appears. I won’t spoil the surprise for you. You have to read everything by yourself. One the other hand we have Kai, he was really interesting character to read about. The character development is really amazing. Not only his character gets to grow up during the story as a person, but all of them and reading about it makes it more and more amazing. All twists and turns in their life make you more and more compelled to keep on reading.

Even though the story is not short, it is not that long too. To say the truth I would have loved to read a lot more about my favourite characters. I loved how it ended, but a bit more would have been so, so good. I’m still hoping, for a short story abut their future selves. It would have been a lot of fun to see them as parents. But well, guess, I’m not getting it.

I hope you will find sometime to read this superb manga, but kepp in mind its for mature readers, and you should get used t it a bit, but you’ll definitely love it a lot. Don’t hate Kai for his stubborn and shitty behavior in the beginning, you’ll be soon drooling as soon as you see his face. Enjoy it to its fullest and stay tuned to Kate’s Corner for more reviews and promos. You might find our next favourite book or manga here. Don’t forget to share your thoughts! Happy reading!

XOXO
