Hm, how do I review Brother without sounding like a dorky fangirl? I don’t know if it’s possible. Simply put, I loved this manga. I will warn you now, if incest, even without blood relation, grosses you out, do not buy Brother.

Technically speaking, the art in Brother is great. Faces are expressive. Clothing is rumpled and realistic. There’s actually pubic hair to go along with those big penises! (*squee*) The color panel in the volume is wonderfully printed. The slipcover is glossy high quality stock. Brava, Drama Queen!

So, on with the story. Asuka Momoki (uke) is a gorgeous 22-year-old virgin. Why is he a virgin? He’s secretly impotent. Asuka’s younger, beautiful step-brother, Yui (seme), is the cause of his perpetually limp state. Through circumstance and confession the brothers discover their mutual love. Of course, raunchy sex ensues.

I’m not saying that’s all there is to Brother. Oh, no, there is much more than that. Brother is a very creative, and often funny, manga. I found myself giggling or outright laughing with the story. And Asuka and Yui’s half-sister, Shiori, is just the cutest thing.

I will happily recommend Brother to every yaoi fan. Drama Queen did an excellent job with translation and giving the readers the original format. The story/art is very enjoyable and worth every hard-earned dollar.
