Manga Review: 僕らはそれを否定できない [Bokura wa Sore o Hitei Dekinai] (Bokura #2) by Kyuugou

Blurb: In Spring of his junior high 2nd year, Saitou got in the same class as Suzuki. Receiving Saitou’s help while being bullied in first year, Suzuki smiled shyly while thinking, “what if we became friends”. Saitou is becoming more and more conscious about Suzuki and their relationship starts to change?!

In my opinion, We Can’t Deny has the best drawings out of allthe artist’ catalogue. I loved the sweetness of the story and the whole thing about Saito defending Suzuki. It was just sweet and I feel like giving Susuki a bear hug each time he gets bullied. Poor baby. Good thing, Saito’s always there for him.

Whilst I Can Tell By Your Hand got me confused about Makoto and Shin’s relationship – they are cousins because their dads are brothers – I wonder if the whole holding hands was still a bff thing. It was just odd how it was not properly established.

The storyline of this one is definitely way more solid than the first story of this series, and the art style somehow feels much refined. Will definitely recommend this one!

Manga Review: You & Me, Etc. (Bokura #1) by Kyuugou

Blurb: Iku and Keita have been buddies since childhood, and have played sports together their whole lives… until their final year in middle school, when Keita’s baseball career abruptly ended as a result of the severe injuries he sustained when saving Iku from being hit by a truck. Ever since that accident, Iku has distanced himself from both the game and his friend, presumably out of guilt. Can these two friends patch up their differences, and become something more…?

Jeez, the feels of this one! I would have liked a more detailed version of Keita’s accident and not just a recounting of Iku’s mom about it. Overall, I really did enjoy Iku and Keita’s interaction, though, I was grasping to connect well with them because although they have great interaction, they’re just far too few in between. Just the same, this was an exciting pick for me. The ending is specially wonderful! Absolutely sweet and adorable!
