yume speaks: Sex (Love) Pistols

Mangaka: Kotobuki Tarako
Status: Ongoing(7 volumes)
People are starting to act very odd around Norio. This average, normal boy is suddenly getting a lot of unwanted romantic attention and he can’t figure out why! A broken leg and a fall down the stairs into the arms of a handsome stranger set off the beginnings of an explanation, and it is one Norio never could have possibly imagined. Soon a whole new world opens up for Norio, revealing a secret society of special people evolved from animals other than monkeys. This society has a complex structure and its members are ranked by rarity and desirability, and it turns out that Norio is a particularly rare breed and his DNA is in much demand! How will he survive in this modern jungle where he’s suddenly the prey? (Source: Tokyopop)

I have to be honest, this kinda effed my mind, i mean, male pregnancy, really? You've gotta be kidding me! And I know I sound like a prude for saying this but the title really turned me off. I thought, " Oh great, another no-plot sex-centered BL." I still read it though because of the ratings, and i never regretted it since. It's an awesome manga, the characters are so amusing and the story is very interesting. I just did not like Norio's partner, who was so not fair to him. He did not want Norio to be taken by others but its okay for him to sleep with other people?! What's up with that?
Then, again, you get to understand him as you realize how messed up his parent was and how she messed up his life. The good thing about him is that he's not all emo about it, he just takes it as it is.
My favorite couple, however, is the Yonekuni x Shiro. They are just sooooooooooo adorable. Although, Yonekuni can be a jerk too like his brother(Norio's pair) but he shows more emotions and is faithful.
Anyways, there are other great pairings in the manga, besides the main pairs, with equally fascinating stories.
Oh, and it has an OVA out, too! yay~ ^_^
