Passion 1

Rating: ♦♦♦♦

Mr. Shima is a beautiful high school teacher. All the girls love him. Some of the boys too. Especially Hikaru Umino.

Hikaru loves Shima so much that he stalks Shima. It’s rather cute because Hikaru is so damn innocent about the stalking. However, I can’t forget that Hikaru establishes their relationship in an unhealthy manner. Okay, so maybe it’s not so cute. It’s more like dirty classroom sex. Anyway, after one touch, Hikaru falls even more.

Shima proposes that they pretend to be lovers until Hikaru graduates. Hikaru enthusiastically agrees despite it only being pretend. Of course one can expect complications like a rival and great heaps of angst.

I really enjoy Passion even though it’s not explicit. Sometimes, a girl just needs some fluffy romance to get through the day. I like the sketchy quality to the art as well.

DMP did a great job with translation. I wish there was a full-color insert, but I’m not going to complain. The story is enough to justify the cost.
