    One thought on “Our Kingdom, Volume 01”

    1. Trigger warnings for sexual assault, attempted rape and incest. (This is one of the reasons I always try to read yaoi before I buy it; the blurb says nothing about Rei and Akira being cousins.) The art is nothing special, and of course Akira starts to return Rei's feelings straight away so there's no real story development or angst buildup. Still not the worst I've read, so it gets two stars.

    2. *For the the first 5*Well drawn, but not detailed. The characters have motivations, but not depth.Plot-wise, ugh. Akira gets kidnapped so many time I lost count, and he has two bodyguards! Not only once, but twice on a ship!The romance is one to cheer for, but the sex is violent-ish, with "No"s being ignored.

    3. In 2005, I discovered Yaoi. I was desperate for manga with a romantic twist, but found my local Borders severely lacking, so I picked up Our Kingdom, Volume 1. I'm not 100% sure whether cousin/cousin romance is the norm is Japan, but I found it a little difficult to get past.

    4. The first book in the manga series "Our Kingdom." At first I was a little confused as to what exactly was going on, but it all fell into place later on. This was an awesome read and it was hilarious all the way through! Looking forward to the rest of the series!!!

    5. I'm like on a manga reading frenzy!! I enjoyed this series just as much as a regular yaoi. I likes Rei's constant teasing of Akira. And how he changes with Akira's help. It was cute and not too graphic which was fine.

    6. The graphics were ok but I'm not a fan of stories that involve love between 15 year old cousins. A little bit of a squick factor.
