It has been quite some time that I actually found a decent BL manga to read and Seven Days is beyond decent…it’s AWESOME, at least for me. I like it so much that I actually downloaded the Japanese RAW versions although I can’t understand a single Japanese word. Oh well, I’ll just have to put my guessing skill to use in attempting to figure out the heads and tails of the series while waiting for the English translation from Aarinfantasy and Vices and Devices, albeit unsuccessfully (I think).
Both Shino Yuzuru and Seryou Touji are popular among girls for their good looks (duh!) but they are different in many ways.
Shino has the good looks and personality to match with, or so most girls in his school thinks. Heck, he is one of the star in the school’s archery team (he sure is smokin’ hot in his archery uniform). However, once the girls began dating Shino, they will broke off soon enough after they actually witness Shino’s true self – he’s sloppy and unrefined…in short he’s not the prince that those girls dream of. Girls can be superficial, eh?
Seryou on the other hand, is a different story all together. You see, it is well-known around the school that he is willing to date anyone for a week as long as she (or he) confesses to him on a Monday. Once the seven days are up, he will decide whether to continue dating that person or not depending on whether he feels something towards the other person.
These two, their path crosses one day as Shino happened to run into him while he waits for the pizza delivery person in front of the school. They talked, and for some reason Shino proposes that they date for a week on a whim…Seryou, surprisingly, agrees to the arrangement.
Truth to be told, I fell in love at first sight with the cover graced by bishounens (how typical of me) and when I read the series synopsis, I find myself even more interested in how the story goes. When I actually read the manga, I am in awe with the artwork…and from then onwards, I’m on the lookout for more works by Takarai Rihito (love his/her art or more specifically, the bishounens…lol). Too bad that so far (according to Baka-Updates) that Seven Days is his/her only BL manga to date…wish that there’s more. I’m definitely a sucker for this type of BL manga…
