Title: Because I’m a Boy
Author: Asia Watanabe
Publisher: Kitty Media
(Probably doesn’t) Contain Spoilers (because that implies a plot!)
I purchased this book because the title sounded cute, and the back blurb made me believe it was about a Shinto priest in training and his childhood friend. Imagine my dismay when I discovered that the story consisted of only 16 pages! This was supposed to be the beginning of a “captivating story of romance and sexuality in full bloom.” Nothing was allowed to bud in this stinky book, let alone bloom!
There are eight stories in this collection of crap, and most of them are distinctly lacking in anything that resembles a plot. Hot and steamy sex without the benefit of a plot is boring, especially if the characters are as crudely drawn as these. I’ll have nightmares for days over the illustration on page 144, where the character reminds me of a praying mantis lying in wait for some unsuspecting bug to wander within striking distance. If I had the energy, I would scan it and insert the image [here], but then it would befoul my hard drive and haunt me for the rest of my days.
Unless you are stuck on an uncharted island, or stranded on a remote mountain top with nothing else to read, avoid this waste of time.
