Her stories are hot and often funny, but what I really love is that they feel more realistic to me.

I keep coming back to these stories when i need a quick quality yaoi fix. Emotion Spectrum is one of the best bl shorts I have read. You feel for the characters rather quickly. Getting the reader to do this doesn't seem to be an easy thing in yaoi let alone a short story. I was left wishing the story would go on. The other 2 stories are also wonderful. This mangaka is one of the few who know how to do Yakuza stories right. Her male characters feel like male characters which for me is important. Reply I enjoyed more on reread. It doesn't initially come at you with a bl punch it is more subtle in it's build up and focus is on the internal struggle of these 2 people in their attraction for one another. It is really lovely and rare.
Her work is truly some of the best that is out there.

The book itself: SuBLime has really put out a great, quality product. The dialogue runs very smoothly, so kudos to Ms. Schilling and Ms. Aker. I hate it when dialogue is awkward and sounds like they just used an online translator. The book has FOUR color pages, need I say more? I probably don't, but I will. This company has always put out quality titles and products, so I know my money is well spent. And it's printed in the U.S.A. (yay! no outsourcing!)

The stories: The book is made up of three stories, none of them connected to one another. The titular story, NightS, is the shortest one, but also the funniest one.

Forbidden Love: NightS- A yakuza and a transporter meet in the dark of the night to do business with one another. Love yakuza stories and this one is not the exception. This is also the story of the book with the hot smex. Only one chapter plus a bonus story, but the characters are sad and funny at the same time. Well worth it.

Young Love: Emotion Spectrum- Sweet story. High school boys fall in love with each other and cuteness ensues. Only one chapter, but what a wonderful chapter it is. Chaste kisses and hot hugs!

Romantic Love: Reply-This story is the bulk of the book. And it's so romantic. A mechanic meets a car salesman. The salesman is described as a "cold hearted, poker faced guy" by someone and the mechanic as "cute." Their story is slow to develop and so very sweet. The extra chapter lets you see how the relationship progresses three months later. Aww.

Kou Yoneda is able to successfully depict different kinds of love in this book. They are all great. They all leave you wanting more, as any good book should. Your money is well spent. Your NightS will be filled with love.

This isn't my favorite Kou Yoneda. That honor goes to saezuru tori wa habatakanai, but they don't carry it on Amazon in English. I wish they did. However, her shorter works are amazing as well, and to put them all in a collection so you can own them all without tracking each one down individually (and probably paying more) is great. The stories have a really nice mixture of sweetness and conflict, and sometimes they can be really funny as well. Any time she's writing about the yakuza, the plot in her stories gets really fast-paced, but she never rushes through the romantic connections through her characters. There's no instant-love here; the psychology and relationships of the characters have more depth to them than a lot of characters in manga. My favorite story here is "Reply," which is about two young men who work at a car dealership and slowly realize their friendship is becoming something more, although one of them is more than a little conflicted about it.

Also, the art is amazing. Even the smallest frames have the same kind of detail work as the cover, and her characters are always drawn with such precision and beauty. The translation is clear and has good grammar. A collection worth reading more than once.

Great manga, great sequel and great author/artist. Yoneda Kou's mangas are my favorite manga rereads. I can't get enough of them.

Very well developed and plotted.The stories are wonderfully played out and masterfully drawn .
The first is about yakuza member and a "transporter ".
This kind of thing is very easy to screw up but it was edgy funny and realistic .
Second is a high school short .which is just that short but well played out .
Third is reply
A longer one between a mechanic and car sales men with more ten one part .

All in all a five star collection I found myself engrossed in each story and all of them rather compelling .

I really love Kou Yoneda's illustrations and writing. Her stories are hot and often funny, but what I really love is that they feel more realistic to me. While I often adore many tropes as much as the next person, I also really appreciate reading things where the characters feel like real people in real relationships and they surprise me and aren't just walking tropes....and I generally find that harder to find, which makes me appreciate it even more.

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

I’d heard quite a bit about this book, or at least about the author. That alone had me curious, since I’d never heard of the author, or read any of her other books (that I know of). The cover didn’t particularly spark my interest, but I do like one-volume manga, and so given the chance to get a copy, I took it.

Up to this point, I have read a lot of one-shot, short story collection manga. And have had a noticeable bad luck with them, as a lot are just not done very well, for a number of reasons. And I’m really happy to say that this was one of the few really good ones.

First, the art is very pretty. Bodies are perfectly proportioned. The faces are done really nicely, and the expressions are portrayed really well. I’m a bit picky with art, so I was happy to see how overall pretty the art was.

Then there are the short stories, of which there were three (some of them split into a couple chapters). Overall the stories were all really well done, the characters fully developed, the plot believable and not even a little rushed. The characters were a definite happy point for me, as there were very different personalities, and I actually grew fond of some them, given the short time they had.

These three things have all been very big problems in other one-shots I’ve read, so I’m really happy, and very impressed, with how well they were done in this book.

The first short story, featuring a yakuza drug delivery, kind of, was probably my least favorite. I just had a hard time getting into it at first. The tiny story at the end of the book to go with it, though, had me laughing.
