Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Tokio Nakagami is 25, but has the body and face of a 14-year-old boy despite being a math teacher. Haruku Iijima, Tokio's secret boyfriend, has the body of a tall, dashing young man though he's only a high school student. The potential creepiness of this teacher-student relationship is mitigated somewhat by the fact that it's the math teacher who acts and looks like a kid, and the mature-looking student who's always trying to cop a feel, but the fetishization of the cute and starry-eyed is on full display in artist Ken's clean-lined drawings of young men in love. Each episode of Clan of the Nakagamis revolves around the frustrated couple's attempts for closeness of a more physical kind. Running interference is Tokio's mysteriously overprotective family, the titular Nakagami clan, which includes a mother who looks like a Japanese doll, a voluptuous hottie who turns out to be Tokio's brother and a hard-drinking grandfather who emerges from his coffin looking like a waifish Little Lord Fauntleroy. The episodes rarely go beyond easy gags, but Ken has a talent for depicting the kind of doe-eyed beauty that's perfect for boy's love (yaoi) manga, managing to keep the characters attractive and sympathetic, even as silliness prevails.

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book because I thought the cover was interesting, especially considering it's a yaoi title. What I found inside explained why the cover was so different. Homerun Ken has a great sense of humor, and it shines throuhgout all of his stories. Not too graphic, but not too sappy either, this book is a great find. The art is beautiful, reminiscent of Lily Hosgino's work, with beautiful bishonen. However, Homerun Ken manages to turn some archetypes of yaoi and shonen-ai on it's head with great results. Even the bonus stories in the back were cute and charming, when I normally find the stories that aren't about the main characters irritating.

Thanks, Homerun Ken!

This book was very fun to read. The pace was fast and there was never a dull moment. I felt it revolved more around comedy than the relationship between the two main characters. The cover is very decieving, but sets the mood for the serious mindset of all characters involved. (they are funny with out meaning to be)Its just another day in the life of the Nakagami's

This is not your typical shounen-ai.

The lovers are the common teacher and student relationship, with the teacher being the more "feminine" looking one. However the centerfold of the story is not their love but the cranky characters of the teacher's family who give this shounen-ai a different flavor. These characters, from a film star looking father who wears traditional Japanese clothes, a "doll-like" mother, to an elder brother whom the mangaka loves to dress up, are idiosyncratic and quirky, spicing up a plot which is already quite hilarious. Some may find the art a bit loud in some scenes (reminds me of Gravitation) but this only serves to highlight the comical sides. The flashback of how teacher and student met over a lost alligator is quite funny. If you are looking for something different besides the warm and fuzzy shounen-ai type, try this.

However serving Junemanga.com, Vol 2 does not seem to be in the near horizon. I hope this is not a sole manga.

Homerun Ken's art is always beautiful, but the heart of this title is actually the humor! It's adorably sweet and silly, the family is a riot, and the main couple are just a joy to watch!

I know most of her other stuff is angsty, but I would buy anything done by this mangaka in a heartbeat!
