* Embracing Love 1

This is a love story about Iwaki and Kato - two impossibly gorgeous looking actors that feel an immediate attraction to one another, but don't know how to express their love. Gradually, they nurture and embrace their feelings, and begin the most romantic relationship of the

Embracing Love 1

At last, Haru Wo Daite Ita ("Embracing Love", as the translation calls it) is licensed and coming to the U.S.! I own most of the series in it's raw Japanese form, and the artwork is simply gorgeous. The characters - Kato (blonde) and Iwaki (black-haired) - are extremely opposite but extremely loveable, and their budding romance is sweet and explicitly erotic (both men being porn stars). The story is also just that - A STORY. This isn't just a tale of random sex, but of a growing relationship between two men who are hit with every emotional, and physical, obstacle in the book: from homophobia to the mass media to family concerns and commitment issues.

I'm hoping nothing is censored out in the American version, because these two have some of the most outrageous sex scenes of any yaoi series; they sort of have to - currently at nine volumes, they have to find ways to keep the sex steamy!

The story can verge on the angsty at points, but it mostly stays true to...

Embracing Love 1 is one of best selling in Manga category.
