Punch↑Actually really liked this story It s about an architech that falls in love with a construction worker They are connected by a stray cat that one of them finds and gets evicted for So, they decide to live together with the cat, and their relationship flourishes from there It was very good I ll have to pick up the next volume soon. Lots of sex scenes but the characterization is wobbly and honestly the relationship isn t terribly compelling The cover and back copy sell this as a romance where the conflict will be class difference but honestly almost all the conflict comes from the two protagonists being unbelievably immature and never telling each other how they feel Also, I wanted the cat to be prominent than it was All in all, kind of a disappointment, although there were some fun moments. 3.5 stars.While it does not break any new ground in the genre nor is it extraordinarily titillating, this first volume in the series gets a few extra points for the following 1 Having a couple that is comprised of actually gay men that this need be stated is a bit problematic but what can you do 2 Having lead protagonists who are goofy and weird I like that Maki the seme is such a weirdo, wears his heart on his sleeve, and tries so hard to be a good boyfriend Another nice change of pace.3 Exploring the problem of starting a relationship with sex and trying to make it work after that.All that said, this volume mostly used the situations to get the characters to getting it on, which is fine, but there are better examples of both erotica and plot driven romances in the genre see others that I have read and reviewed here Overall, it s just fine with a couple of aspects making it slightly better than fine.P.S I totally don t buy that Maki s ex in this volume is straight he s, at the very least, bisexual but I m not sure I buy that either Doesn t help that he has a fiance who never makes an appearance Just food for thought. Spin off from Play Boy Blues series Even cold hearted bad boys can fall in love Maki Motoharu egotistical Architect and Ohki Kaouta construction worker come together all due a fight over the love of a cat I loved the tension between these too This series may even be better than PBB Of course Aki and Shinobu have parts to play in this story, and the bonus story is all about just Aki and Shinobu on vacation. I do like this series, it just isn t my favorite I find the relationship interesting and the cats ARE TO CUTE 2.5 5 This graphic novel was pretty good and entertaining It was pretty difficult at times to be able to tell who was speaking because it wasn t all that clear The characters themselves were good, but I was also partly confused by some of the premise because this is spinoff series to an already concluded series I cannot find the previous series for sale online All in all, it was fun and entertaining and very sexual. Architect Motoharu Maki Is Hanging Out At The Construction Site Ogling A Particular Hunky, Well Toned Construction Worker When He Is Unexpectedly Reunited With His Lost Cat, Shinobu The Reunion Is All Thanks To Kouta Ohki, A Foul Mouthed Young Ironworker Who Found And Cared For The Lost Cat Unfortunately For Kouta, This Act Of Kindness Led To His Eviction When Motoharu Agrees To Take In Young Kouta, Will He Be Able To Tame This Feisty Stray Includes A Bonus Play Boy Blues Side Story It s Yaoi not TolstoyThere were some really cute and funny partsbut like most bl manga it s about the sex and then sex again Outrageous.Atrocious.hilarious Three words which describe this series perfectly I didn t think that I would enjoy this book this much but Maki s outrageousness and absolute shamelessness makes this a fun read. Punch Up, story and art by Shiuko Kano, is a yaoi manga series Here s a quick synopsis Basically, an architect by the name of Maki Motoharu is at a construction site sizing up an attractive construction worker because he s a lecherous old man when his cat Shinobu happens to turn up He discovers an ironworker, Ohki Kouta, had been caring for Shinobu, and Ohki lost his home because of the cat Maki feels responsible and takes Ohki in, allowing him to live at his place Maki is a pervert with a wandering eye, and Ohki has a foul mouth and bad temper They like each other, but have a long ways to go in the relationship department, which expands and develops further along in the series Each has to make a number of sacrifices and learn to curb their bad habits It takes Maki time to admit he loves the young man.I purchased the entire series and read it in several hours Initially, I ve got to say Maki irked me his sleazy personality, going for every guy and his sexual perversions in the beginning, were a real turn off I couldn t tell if his feelings for Ohki were genuine or not, or if he was just an old dog trying to learn a new trick Not to mention, I didn t find him to be the most attractive seme I mean Asami Viewfinder is drop dead gorgeous, the iconic seme ruthless and stoic, but has a soft spot for his prey Another is Kei Kizuna a tough, no non sense cutie with a wicked sense of humour, and then there s Takano Sekai ichi Hatsukoi , a laid back, mature sexy with brains Those are the kinds of semes I come to almost expect, even though I realize some aren t always that attractive, for instance Sougetsu from Midare Somenishi the guy was an abusive creep with a capital C So, I ve concluded it s Maki s personality that I didn t care for, but grew to accept later Ohki did tame the dirty letch and made him his own But, unfortunately, the bliss didn t last Without spoiling the story, I will say something incredibly sad happens, which puts a serious kink in their relationship, and Maki s love to the test After the sad incident the entire dynamic changed between these two men, and that s when I really began to appreciate Maki and see him in a new light He had guts to stick it out The only other thing I found irritating in this series was Maki s nose I won t explain, but you ll understand if you read it.There is a ton of explicit sex in this yaoi, and an array of supporting characters, some with their own side stories I can t say that Punch Up will be added to my favourite list, but it s definitely worth reading if you re into yaoi 4 Stars To read post
