Fake Fur

Rating: ♦♦♦♦♦

There’s something endearing about a story that walks you through the characters evolving sexuality, figuring out exactly what they want/need in life and how they are going to get it. Especially when it’s handled as deftly as it is in this book. After only about twenty-five pages into the book you find yourself caring about the characters and wanting them to realize their happiness.

We have Yamashita, who doesn’t think there’s anything really wrong with being attracted to males, he’s been attracted to them his whole life, he just doesn’t feel the need to act on his feelings. That is, until he spends more time with his friend Kubo and realizes that he wants to kiss him. He gets his kiss, but realizes that he wants more than a friend. He wants something that Kubo’s not ready to give him. So Yamashita starts looking for something. He’s not sure exactly what he wants, but he’s going to know it when he finds it.

While this isn’t one of the more explicit 18+ titles that June Manga has released, it is one of the sweetest and most captivating that they have released. I would put the quality of this book right up there with Toko Kawai when it comes to being able to pull at your heartstrings.

Reading this book left me feeling warm and happy. It’s the perfect manga to curl up with on a rainy day when you just want to be left with a feeling of satisfaction and that all is right with the world.
