One of the best manga I've read so far
Twittering Birds Never Fly vol.1 (Yaoi Manga) - Kou Yoneda

Amazing. This is the real thing.



I wanted to read this series because of a bunch of reasons:

1. The title is poetical and beautiful. It stuck and couldn't forget about it ever since.
2. The covers are suggestive and artsy.
3. Kou Yoneda's style agrees with me.
4. Shady environment: the Japanese mafia.
5. One of the MCs is impotent. The other one is a masochist. I wanted to see how the hell this would be sorted out.

Yes, I kind of expected this to epically explode in my very face, yet it didn't.

So...

Yashiro is yakuza. He's also an teasing irreverent masochist who has been secretly pinning his best (and only) friend from high school.

Doumeki is an ex-con, and an ex-police officer, who intercedes in one of Yashiro's 'scenes'. He's also impotent. Nothing can scratch his imperturbable armor. Or does it?

Yashiro takes him as his bodyguard (although he finds other uses in him) and loves provoking him in all ways he can think of. Sexually mostly, and the non-answer he receives from Doumeki only spurs him on even more.

Strangely enough, there is a compelling atmosphere in this story. The characterization is incredible, and their attachment to each other may be deeper than it seems at first. Even when they are unable to meet in the middle.

Or are they?

Lots of touching
No Touching At All - Kou Yoneda

At first it was innocuous, and I found it boring. That's why I was actually surprised when my feelz were shaken. I was close to tears in certain scenes. I truly did not expect such raw emotion to comef from these cartoons with a full blast. I was wrong.

Yes!
NightS - Kou Yoneda

I was pleasantly surprised by this. His style is melancholic and crestfallen. Strangely enough, even the "adorable" story was sad, in a way. However, the author manages to not only infect with this sadness, but also with the warmth we can find in the different pairs.



ONESHOT
This may be my favorite. Incredibly sensual. Unexpected ending that is not an ending at all, but the beginning of something huge. That's why I can't understand why there is not a whole book about this story. The premise is awesome.

(This stories continues in NightS: Another Story).

EMOTION SPECTRUM
This is the high-school boys one. The "cheerful" one.

REPLY
I don't know what to think about this. The characters seem to like each other, then stay far away and their feelings get cold, then they regret being star away, but they still don't get closer.
