Life, Love #4 by Nishida Higashi
I can’t thank enough to Canis Major Scans for picking up this title! I’ve read the previous 3 chapters long ago and I was dying to know how this would continue.
The story is about Takahiro (the dark-haired guy), the son of a politician who has been kidnapped by a gang and Jack, who has to watch over him. I really enjoy how their relationship is developed. They are attracted to each other and the tension is palpable. Jack, who is seen as an idiot by the other members, is a delinquent but he comes to care for Takahiro in his own way while Takahiro looks at him with growing interest. But their situation doesn’t make any of it easier.
I love how Nishida Higashi portrays them both, each one with its own characteristics And she mixes angst, tension and comedic moments while making it all seem realistic. Her art, as I’ve mentioned some time before, is not the one that appeals to the masses but I like it (especially all those intense looks coming and going between these two!).
