Dining Bar Akira

Rating: ♦♦♦

I really enjoyed this one. Aesthetically, it’s just what I’m looking for in a release – slightly sketchy, with extremely emotive facial expressions.

We start off with Akira, the manager of a successful restaurant and bar. Things are going fairly well, or at least as well as a chaotic kitchen can ever run, until Akira gets a confession of love Torihara, one of his young employees.

This is all well and good, but Torihara is six years younger than Akira, and Akira has never considered a same sex relationship before. Now, this being the wonderful world of BL, these little complications won’t stand in the way of getting the two pretty boys in bed together. It’s just a matter of applying the right amount of angst and seduction to get these two to see that they really need to be together.

This release is really about its gorgeous art, and some wonderfully comedic perving and angsting behind kitchen doors. This is a real treat for manga lovers.
