Scandalous Seiryo University 1

Rating: ♦♦♦

You know, all in all, this really isn’t too bad of a release. The first story is utter shit, but after that it does improve. It never improves quite enough to make up for the horror that is the first story, but the rest of the stories are at least slightly engaging.

I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I’m losing my interest in stories that are utterly plotless. I don’t care how pretty the characters are. They need to have a reason for banging each other stupid aside from the fact that the author wants them to bang. Yes, it’s hot. Yes, I like my graphic sex. But the head of the student council dragging the new boy into a closet and giving him a few orgasms without any backstory or motivation isn’t something that appeals to me anymore.

I know that stories like this are very popular with the kids who are most likely too young to even be buying smut. I know when I first got into this genre, any hint of boys kissing, fondling or humping was to be worshiped and adored, no matter how crappy it was. Not that there’s anything really wrong with that level of enthusiasm, I just find it tiring and would rather have a decent plot with my smut or at least some character development.

Crap. Now I’ve done it. I’ve gone and gotten old. Fear me and my old lady bitchy-ness.

There are some very cute bits in the story. I really enjoyed the story about the young man who’s very short and wants a pair of limited edition sneakers that will actually fit his petite frame. Then his lover who’s dealing with jealousy and all kinds of other things, and is bound and determined to get the shoes for him.

The art is great, very crisp and clean and some of the expressions on the characters faces are just adorable. It’s just not my cup of tea. Though, I know for a fact that there are a lot of fans out there who are not as old and as cranky as I am who are going to find a lot to like in this release.
