Sempai – Bikke
Fujinami Kou is a high school second-year who had lost his boyfriend, an upperclassman schoolmate, to a car accident an year previously. On the anniversary of Misumi senpai’s death, Kou is dispirited and contemplating skipping school. Kakitsubata Saki, a first-year, sees him and offers help, assuming that he’s ill. As Kou startles at the sight of Saki’s face and mentions that he resembles “the person I used to go out with”, the younger boy is instantly intrigued and resolves to discover his sorrowful, introverted upperclassman’s secret.
A semi-cute, semi-sweet, semi-dramatic story that could use more fluffy moments but still nice enough especially at the ending.
Shinkuu Yuusetsu – Bikke
In this country, every person has to be matched up with a partner. Partnerships are made around when you turn three or four. The doctors decide who gets paired together. One person acts as the ‘supplier.’ The other as the ‘receiver.’ It is impossible for a ‘receiver’ to continue to live without periodically being given power from the ‘supplier.’ And in the same way, it is imperative for a ‘supplier’ that a ‘receiver’ accept some of the power generated within their body. This ‘power’ can’t be made anywhere other than inside a ‘supplier’s own body… So for the ‘receivers,’ we ‘suppliers’ are completely indispensable….
With a plot that sets boys up to kiss, kiss and kiss, this manga conveniently delivers fluff, some drama and even a bit of girlxboy moments for for those who are into that sort of thing. Although it could use some more humor, the interconnected stories are still nice enough for your daily shounen-ai fix.
