My Paranoid Next Door Neighbor

I know a lot of people are really fond of Kazuka Minami. I usually tended to shy away from her stuff because many of her characters are drawn too young for my tastes. What can I say, it just creeps me out. This is a release that I’m happy to say I was able to enjoy because, while the characters were drawn young, they were not too young looking for me to be able to enjoy it. Good thing I was able to enjoy this release because, happily, it’s completely filthy.

We have high school seniors, Hokuto and Yukito. Hokuto and Yukito grew up together, their fathers were very close, almost too close, and thought of each other as brothers. As the boys grew older, they grew apart that by the time their senior year rolled around, they didn’t even speak.

Hokuto’s father worries about his son’s long commute to school, so he calls up his old friend, Yukito’s father, and the dads conspire to have Hokuto come live with Yukito’s family for the rest of the school year.

That’s all fine and dandy, except for the fact that Yukito really doesn’t want Hokuto to move in. He’s bent out of shape about having to share his space. Hokuto isn’t as cranky about the move. He seems to be almost looking forward to it. Heck, we know he’s happy about it when he seduces Yukito almost as soon as he moves in.

It’s a sweet story, for all of its filth. You get to see the boys realize their feelings for each other go farther than just how good they can make each other feel.

It’s a high-quality release like this that make me very happy that 801 Media has acquired the licenses that they have. I never worry about them ruining a series for me. Everything is always presented so well. Hell, this release just made me happy. I can’t ask for more than that.
