Women love to love, too... Aug 4, 2008
***Warning: This manga is NOT for children, as the plastic wrap and parental advisory sticker implies***
There's this general consensus, status quo, must-be-true conception going around that manga made for and by women must contain overly attractive men engaging in risky sex with each other... usually with a seriously DOM/SUB slant to it.
Let me be happy to tell you that it is NOT the case here....
Hana Aoi has put together a series of vignettes about twentysomething women in love... both falling and making. Love for Dessert touches on modes of attraction, motives, insecurities... pretty much everything young lovers wrestle with when just beginning a relationship, both emotional and physical.
From the coworkers whose tastes annoy each other just right, to the college tutor who falls for her student, to the hostess who (doesn't really, though maybe that one time) needs saving from her fallen state... each story is a self-contained snapshot of those heady moments of new love.
The volume is most certainly a lusty busty, but the love scenes (which are present in every chapter) are nothing worse than you'd find in your typical R-rated romantic drama. That's not to say a parent should ignore the plastic wrap, but folks shouldn't be scared the title is full-blown hentai.
The art is most certainly of the women's manga style, with soft lines and overly pretty men, but that's to be expected. As a guy, myself, it put me off a little (what with being annoyed that I'm not the ideal these women are looking for), but I'm not the target audience... and I was still able to enjoy the story without letting it bother me too much.
Overall the vignettes were direct, enjoyable, and full of subtle little touches to tug both the heart and the loins for both sexes. I would recommend this title to anyone who loves 'love,' both the emotion and the act, with the reminder caveat that this book is NOT for kids... but isn't porn, either.
