Beautiful art, bishounens…that’s how I would describe Touma Rei’s works. It’s a typical shoujo though, but still, I love it since her drawings are all pretty and I love how she draw her characters especially the bishounens in her works…
Basically this oneshot revolves around this pair of childhood friends. Guy likes Girl but Girl appears to be a “sadist” who orders him around. It seems to me that Guy is a “masochist” for he don’t mind to be ordered around by Girl…Oddly enough, Girl’s name’s Sawako and Guy’s called Mamiya. I wonder, does S stands for Sadist, Sawako and M’s for Masochist, Mamiya? Just a thought…
This is yet another typical shoujo story where Girl’s mom passed away and she found out that her dad’s still living and that she has three brothers (handsome ones, of course, as expected from Touma Rei). The youngest bro seems to hate her (or is it the opposite?) and the girl fell for her bro…sounds like incest eh? But remember, this is a shoujo story so one might guess that in the end the main heroine of the story realises that her bro is not her biological bro and they ended up together…
Jitter Bug can be found in S no Yuiitsu M no Zettai book.
This is actually the first Touma Rei oneshot that I read. That was when I fell in love with her artwork at first sight…lol!
Bet!! can also be found in S no Yuiitsu M no Zettai book.
Sleeping Beauty wa Nemurenai (Suriipingu Biyuutei wa Nemurenai)
The sleeping beauty in question is a boy…a good looking one. Being a “sleeping beauty”, this boy is always seen napping, even at school. What happen is one day, this girl saw him lying down on the grass sleeping and she kissed him. He woke up and find that she has broken his glasses by accident. Using the broken glasses as an excuse, he made her “take responsibility” and then they realise that they were in love with each other all along.
Sleeping Beauty wa Nemurenai can be found in Hoshiiro no Okurimono book.
Two words to describe her latest work – bishounens galore!
From what I see, the main focus of the story are the four bishounens and a kiss. Here’s how it goes: This girl was napping in the library and someone kissed her. When she woke up, she found that there were four guys at the “scene of the crime” at that time. So, the one million dollar question is: which of the four guys kissed her?
This may be a typical shoujo story but I am a sucker for such stories especially the ones where there are plenty of bishounens to ogle at.
Note to self: time to get back to reality…we all know that this is only a manga…so snap!
P.S – The works of Touma Rei mentioned above are just the ones that made the biggest impression on me…but do check out her other works as well.
