Also very well known for the anime adaptation. I have written and talked about Dakaichi. It’s one of my favourite BL anime. The anime is so fun to watch. So when I saw that Futekiya has the manga license and translated into English, I can finally read it properly fully. I did buy the Japanese (original) copy on Renta (Japanese site)
I wanted to understand the full context of the manga. And make a comparison to the anime adaptation. The manga is much more questionable. I started to question why I like anime?
The drawing is sorta average, not great. I’m the anime, they polished very well. I’m not a fan of the manga, to be honest. It’s too fast and all over the pace. I don’t know how this manga series become so popular to make it an anime. Maybe there was something that the studio/animation saw that could profit from. But the anime was ten times better. A lot of time, the anime is far better than the manga. Made huge improvements to the characters and storyline.
The manga is one big non-con story. It will be not suitable for any reader. The bedroom scene is uncomfortable. It is too outrageously non-con. I don’t know why that makes a good BL story.
So yes, I did make me question the anime and my liking toward the anime. If I read the manga first, I would be more likely bothered watching the anime.
