I was pretty excited yesterday when I published the first post on this blog and so I decided to write another one! I hope it wasn’t so boring, if so I’ll try not to make this review become one. I am not very good at giving critiques because I always end up liking everything I read, but I’ll seriously try my best to give you some nice reviews. ヾ(・ε・。)
So!!! Today for you I’ve chosen: Baby Many Cry by Syaku. The mangaka’s name might sound a bit familiar to some because you might already know them thanks to Aioi Musubi! This work I mentioned has already been scanlated, so if you’re curious and want to read it I’ll leave here the link (don’t forget to thank those who worked at this project, right?~). Let me know what you think about it~! Ah, of course I didn’t mean to spam, just thought that you might want to read more of her in english. *winks
Differently from her translated work, this one doesn’t follow just a single story, but three: the starting story that can be seen in the first and last chapter of this manga features the guys on the cover, Nozomi a kinda loner-looking guy and Matsuzaki, both high schooler. The plot is pretty simple; you’ll follow the developpement of their relationship: from strangers to lovers, decorated with a bit of a childish behaviour from one of the boys (if you want to know, it’s Matsuzaki!!). I won’t talk about this first story very much, I’ll just leave this consideration. Why? Just because! www
No, no! Just kidding! Truth to be told… it’s just that I want to talk about the second story more. I just realized that somehow — not each of them, though– plenty of sensei’s characters resemble animanga ones. For example, the first time I’ve read Aioi Musubi and find out about one of the main characters I yelled “Oh my god, what is Levi doing here??”. The same happened here. As twitter friends already know, I really am a big fan of Haikyuu so after flipping pages to chapter two I arrived to a sudden realisation: since (sadly) Oikawa and Iwaizumi can’t be playing at Seijou anymore [gross sobbing ft. Shinji Ikari], they’ve now been called to star in this manga as flourist and waiter. I have to say that I enjoyed 85% of this story because I thoght about them as protagonists all the time. \\\ Woefully the Oikawa-san-looking waiter’s real name is Kujou while Haruno is the Iwaizumi-like /coldere/ flourist. The story this time is pretty different: we don’t find kisses nor hanky panky scenes. It is all centered on a different level. Well, there is attraction, there is desire, but that comes next.
What I liked the most about this manga is probably ch. 2-3 story. Waiter-kun has also kinda attracted me. His behaviour, the way he got slightly jealous of his fella, the attempt to monopolize his prey really hit me. But, of course, this is my mere thought.
As I said, I won’t talk about story number three, but to make up for it here’s some funny images.
