SENSITIVE PORNOGRAPH ??????????????) • Ashika Sakura •
DMP (2007) • Magazine Magazine (2003) • 1 volume • Yaoi • 18+
Short story collection and inspiration for the better-known anime OAV. In the title story, two male manga artists fall in lust after admiring one another’s comics. Other stories feature a tough teenager who keeps letting his crush beat him up (“I can’t hit him. Not that pretty face”), two childhood friends who experimented together as boys, a photographer who gets involved with the boss’s son, and a pair of old lovers who are reunited as adults after one of them has married. The nuttiest story is easily “Trophies Belong in the Bedroom,” wherein a pet-sitter is hired to take care of a man’s pet “rabbit,” only to find a naked and randy bunny-boy tied up in the closet. The scenarios are generally inventive and witty, with the translation providing some amusing dialogue: “Yes, Seiji-kun. But how about some pants?” Ashika’s art consists almost entirely of cute guys paired off by hair color and hot, sticky sex scenes. (Review by Shaenon Garrity)
