MANGA: I Am The Big Brother
I Am The Big Brother – Kei Kanai
Nao has taken care of his two younger twin brothers, Tetsuto and Asuma, for as long as he can remember. Thanks to his care and affection, they’ve grown up into two fine gentlemen who are now super popular at school. However, they’re both totally obsessed with their big brother! The two constantly vie for the innocent and oblivious Nao’s attention. Their competition goes into high gear during the school field day. With Nao as the prize, neither Tetsuto nor Asuma can afford to lose! Also included is the short story In the Soup, where the amazing cook Wataru realizes that he may not know as much about food as he thinks he does.
I Am The Big Brother + Me & My Brother + Me & Sempai: A slightly taboo story of twins obsessing over their older brother that sadly didn’t go the threesome route. Glad to see Nao went with the twin I liked better. The other twin gets his own man too.
In The Soup: A one-shot story about a high school boy winning a uni student’s heart with good food. Gentler and better! than the main story.
MANGA: An Even More Beautiful Lie
An Even More Beautiful Lie – Kei Kanai
Painter Yukari Yohito will soon realize that despite all that he’s been through, leaving his umbrella on a train will be the one thing that changes his life. Completely in tune with his paintings, Yukari is a genius at the canvas; however he is completely useless at living life. One day fellow art student Kurosu Keiichiro realizes Yukari has forgotten his umbrella on the train and quickly tries to return it– having been a huge fan of Yukari’s work, he strikes up a friendship. Keiichiro begins coming by to take care of things for the neurotic artist. However, the more he involves himself in Yukari’s complex life the deeper Keiichiro’s feelings begin to run. It’s no longer mere friendship or even admiration that moves him, but just what should he do about it?
Unfortunately wasn’t feeling this. Got tired of Yukari’s tortured artist schtick really fast. And why do artists always like drawing nudes? That shit’s boring, people!
