I have been a fan of Tamaki Kirishima for a while now. Most of her work, and I wish there was more, has not yet been licensed in English. It's worth seeking out through fan scanlation sites. Snap this one up while you can. If, like me, you are a fan of yaoi with salary men, you will not be disappointed.

Her artwork is a little different - no flowers or girly ukes here. Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, though. She moves effortlessly between the erotic and the comic. And speaking of the erotic, the artwork is refreshingly graphic - no blank spaces or Ken-doll bodies in Kirishima's work. The side characters and sub-plots are also engaging and leave you wanting more.

My only quibble is with the translation. I was able to read the first two chapters as fan scanlations before this project was licensed, and the fan translations caught more of the subtleties of the original. But if you haven't read the prior translation, you probably won't be bothered by this. As I said, the differences are subtle. In all other respects this is a superior edition - a must-have for any yaoi collection.

I have to say that the previous review hits all the right marks, my only "but" in this story is that the brother and love interest sometimes looked the same. And the chest muscles were hilarious... literally: " (___) (___) "!!! The plot is not that interesting or original, it contains the usual plot twists and turns: kidnappings, jealous siblings, etc., but the characters are endearingly funny. The chibis are just too cute, and the "President's" attempts at committing evil deeds are just hilarious! This is something to read when you feel like laughing, and it is a nice add to my BL collection.
I will now look out for other works by this author.

Format: Paperback
Mutsuki is the young president of a family business; he is a good president, but his late father wanted him to be an evil president, and Mutsuki had sworn on his father death bed to maintain the promise. But now, ten years later, he is still a good boy, and every time he tries to do an evil deed, he chickens out. More, he also suddenly faints. One of this time he is rescued by Torii, a younger man, but with more confidence than Mutsuki. And when Mutsuki tries to seducing Torii to do an evil deed, he ends up seduced himself.

The graphic is interesting, pretty original and different from others I read. The male characters are decipt in good detail, even if Torii is a bit to like Mutsuki's brother, sometime I confuse the two. Actually the graphic is the main interest in this manga, since the story is pretty clear and not very much more than what I wrote.

There is a sub story that is also quite interesting, among Mutsuki's brother and the chauffeur, but I think it would deserve a bit more of space. In the end then, the author lets us see some more details on Mutsuki's lawyer.

All in all I'm happy to read this, the love story is sweet and romantic.

Format: Paperback
First off, I think someone mentioned this before but definitely make sure you take off the dust jacket and take a look. But do it after you've read the rest of the book. It'll be so much better that way. I actually laughed out loud when I checked under the dust jacket of The President's Time. It was an incredibly pleasant surprise but one that I almost missed.

That said, I enjoyed the rest of the book, not just the covers. The art is a little so-so in places. I had trouble telling Mutsuki's brother and Torii apart a couple of times. They look very similar. The story is nothing original true but it was definitely handled in a great way. I love Mutsuki. He was so cute and innocent. I laughed every time he tried doing something "evil". His secretary and driver cheering him on while he tried to play ding dong dash was hilarious. The story wasn't high on the yaoi content. There were only a few scenes that were short but sweet. Either way, the cuteness of the story more than made up for it. Cliche or not, I found the whole book to be very endearing in a goofy humor kind of way. Tamaki Kirishima is great at making weird situations and funny characters. So if you're looking for something entertainingly funny to go with your man love you'll be very satisfied here.
