It’s Manga Monday. A weekly post highlighting a different series. I’ll mostly do posts on completed or ongoing series that are regularly updated. While I do not condone scanlations, please support the creator and licensing companies by purchasing the work where available.
This week’s manga is – Nana to Kaoru
Kaoru is a 17-year old virgin who has a SM fetish. He always dreams about a SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana. One day Kaoru’s mom decides to hide all his SM toys so he’ll study for a change, by asking Nana to hide his toys. Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on but she accidentally locks it and doesn’t have the key!
Here’s a more mature oriented manga that is sure to peak interest. From the event illustrated in the above summary, the Nana and Kaoru develop a relationship more than being childhood friends and neighbors. With this they also share the secret of doing S&M things as a “Breather” to ease off the stress that Nana builds up as the model popular student (Kaoru is the creepy guy with little-to-no friends). Kaoru, who has always been in love with her, willingly does these “Breathers” as a means to be close and relied upon by Nana, as he knows a guy like him is not good enough as lover material. As the series progresses, their bond becomes stronger and they encounter their own faults as well as see why they need each other. Also, this cocktease of a manga just has some damn good art lol.
