A Love Song for the Miserable (Yaoi) - Yukimura

Oh, this was good. It was an impulse purchase. It was on sale, and I read a review that said it was very sweet and didn't have much in the way of sex scenes. Of course, the last time I bought something that was described that way, I ended up with Hot Steamy Glasses and its poorly developed romance and near-rape.


A Long Song for the Miserable was, thankfully, genuinely good. My primary complaint is that it needed more pages devoted to Nao and Asada after they officially became a couple. Not a huge issue, though, since the epilogue and earlier pages showing their budding friendship were really nice.
