Close the Last Door 1

Rating: ♦♦♦♦

At first, I had a hard time getting into this series. For the first few chapters I was just trying to figure out who was who and how they were all connected together. Eventually, I got everyone sorted out in my head and I was able to enjoy this series for being the utter crack that it is.

So we’ve got Nagai, who’s a stereotypical salary-man. Nagai’s got a crush on his coworker, Saitou. One problem though, Saitou’s getting married. Then there’s Honda, who’s looking for a good time and way into Nagai’s pants to help him relieve some tension. Still with me? Good.

Now Saitou gets dumped the day after his wedding. Nagai’s still massively lusting after him, but doesn’t seem to be able to bring himself to tell Saitou about it because Honda’s always finding away to relieve any and all pent-up sexual frustration.

Saitou and Nagai share a drunken kiss. Does Saitou mean anything by it? Could the three of them possibly end up in bed together at some point? Are they all just going to crash and burn before even attempting to be together?

This is another series where the art is rather rough, but starts to grow on you. The character’s faces are very expressive and really show everything that’s going on around them. It’s really going to be interesting to see where the author goes with this. Of course, I just want the three of them in bed and screwing madly, but I’m just perverted like that.

June has finally started to include some of the honorifics. I just wish that they would do it consistently. Yes, it’s great to have one of the characters calling the other one sempai, there’s really just not a term in English that conveys the same meaning as sempai. If we have that term, why can’t we have sans, kuns, sensei and the rest of the honorifics that the fans seem to really enjoy?

At least it’s a step in the right direction.
