Lies and Kisses

Rating: ♦♦♦♦

Meet Haru. Haru works menial jobs to get by.

Meet Tatsuya. Tatsuya is a business man who is searching for his younger brother.

One night they meet at a bar where Haru is working. Haru gets invited back to Tatsuya’s place. Lovely hot sex ensues.

Add in one small problem. Tatsuya thinks that Haru is his half-brother. Haru knows Tatsuya is his half-brother.

Angst ensues.

They fight. They make up. They learn about what really happened with their family…and more lovely hot sex ensues.

I really just love Masara Minase. Her stories are sweet, her art is clean and expressive and her boys angst like no one’s business.

While this isn’t one of my all-time favorites by this artist, compared to some of the crap that’s being published, this is really a quality piece of work.

As per usual, Drama Queen has done a fantastic job of keeping the original presentation of the manga. The translation is good, the binding and dust cover are fantastic and they keep in the kuns and the sans and the oni-chans that express the character’s feelings far better than any shoddy English translation could. I’m so glad that Drama Queen has picked up Masara Minase’s releases. I shudder to think about what some of the other companies would do with them.
