Author's Pet is actually a collection of shorts. The first two chapters and one of the end chapters are the main couple, Tsubaki the writer and Yuuta. The two meet when Yuuta is hurrying along and knocks Tsubaki down the stairs, apparently breaking his arm and both his legs. Since he's incapacitated he makes Yuuta type his latest novel. Sounded promising. Unfortunately their story is rushed and actually skips over some parts that could have been interesting. We see before the accident but not the accident itself. There's a WHAM and next thing you know Tsubaki is in the hospital bed all bandaged up. Yuuta helps him with work and eating and suddenly they're in love.
The second chapter deals with their relationship after Tsubaki is released from the hospital. Yuuta has been helping Tsubaki with his work until he realizes that he's getting paid for kissing the boss. He doesn't want that. He wants a relationship. The story skimmed along too quickly for me to really be interested in their feelings.
I did like the last story about them though. Tsubaki got to act a little more loopy so I found it pretty enjoyable. He finally had a little personality.
The other chapters are separate stories. "To Keep A Cat" is about a rather cold man who takes in a stray. This time it just happens to be a man and not a cat. The story seemed to move along a little slower and I think it's probably my favorite of the book. There were some nice touches of personality to them.Read more ›
My favorite stories were the three involving the characters of Author's Pet, the title stories. After Yuuta hurts Tsubaki's hands accidentally he has to take over the author's typing duties which involve some very sexy writing. Handcuffs never hurt my enjoyment of a story, either.
My second favorite story was Love Battle in the Dorms. It was totally comedic and I felt sorry for Oohashi. Both Noriaki and Oohashi vie for Youhei's affections, and it appears Noriaki wins, but you never know.
To Keep a Cat involves Naruse helping a beaten up stranger, Mutsuki, who was running away from his sadistic lover. When Mutsuke wants to pay Naruse back with sex, Naruse's use of cigarette smoke to discourage him was hilarious. Naruse's cats really added to the story.
What Should I Do? is about Sanai, a member of the school morality squad, and Kaiwatani, his hapless vicim who always has something wrong, and needs to be disciplined. Kaiwatani finally comes to school perfectly dressed which floors Sanai who of course can not allow this to continue. There's no sex in this one, but it's so cute.
The Helplessly Romantic Type has a neat twist at the end.
In Open 24 Hours Sakamoto loses his job at the convenience store that Shirokawa shops at, but Shirokawa doesn't leave him unemployed for long. There's a cute little dog in this story.
This anthology doesn't have explicit sex (soft), although there is sex, but the stories are heartwarming, and I've reread them many times.
There are also 5 extra 4-square cartoon panels after each main story which really add to the enjoyment.
I don't know what happened to you. You used to publish such great works of art. You did spell check. You made sure printing was up to standards. You tried your best.
Now, you come out with crap--the same thing, all the time, regardless of art, story, or effort. Speaking of effort, this copy I hold in my hands not only has typos, missing words, and extra words that don't need to be there--but half the text is chopped off on the edges of the paper! A few instances, I couldn't even understand what the speech bubble was trying to say, because of the poor print job.
This manga itself was cute. I liked the characters, but honestly... try a bit better. June, you really have ended up a on the bottom of my trusted publishers list. Which is sad, since you used to be at the top.
