Aoi and Sato are cute and I love following along as they grow closer as a couple over the year and being there for important milestones like moving in together. I appreciate how they both are trying to show their love and appreciation for one another. Like in the March chapter when Sato wants to dazzle Aoi with his cooking for White Day, but even though he’s planned it perfectly and practiced the meal several times, he fails when when the big day arrives. He’s understandably miserable, but Aoi does his best to cheer him up. I love those intimate moments between them.
Both characters are adorable. Aoi’s job as an erotic voice actor (a professional moaner) is very creative, but Sato is my favorite of the two. He’s a bona fide geek and lives for gundam and spread sheets, but he’s not portrayed with any negativity. Instead, Amy Tasukada celebrates his geekiness and I love that.
One of my favorite things about Amy Tasukada’s writing is her meticulous research. Every little detail is correct and it’s evident that she’s spent hours and hours checking her facts and getting everything just right. One of my pet peeves are when authors get easily googlable facts wrong, so I really appreciate a writer who’s done their due diligence.
I can’t write this review without mentioning the fabulous illustrations. Every month there’s drawing to go with the story, and Alexandra Pilzner has done an amazing job in capturing Aoi and Sato.
If you’re in the mood for a quick, sweet read with lots of Japanese flavor, this is just the story for you.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
A robot fanboy. An erotic voice actor. When love comes calling, will they shed their armor?
Sato’s only long-term relationship is the one he shares with his Gundam collectibles. He dreams about the kind of unconditional love his parents enjoy. If only he could break out of his shell, he might find his special someone…
Outgoing playboy Aoi has sworn off relationships. He knows they only distract him from his budding voice acting career. He’s earned a few loyal fans, and if he keeps at it, he may even earn enough to never worry about being evicted again…
When Sato meets Aoi at the local anime store, there’s definitely a spark. But even as they tread carefully, their commitment issues and Aoi’s troubled past soon muck things up before they can start. In order for Sato and Aoi to have their happily-ever-after, they’ll both have to take a leap of faith… and hope to be caught.
Would It Be Okay to Love You? is the first book in a gay romance series set in Japan. If you like original characters, nerd culture, and simmering chemistry, then you’ll love Amy Tasukada’s charming multicultural love story.

Would it be Okay to Love You? (Would It Be Okay to Love You? #1) by Amy Tasukada is a sweet gentle romance set in Japan. Readers familiar with Yaoi or Boy's Love manga will recognize that Amy Tasukada loves this form of fiction and in a way pays homage to it with this lovely series and story.
I'm a fan of this author whose tales are often located in Japan, both historical and contemporary. Her knowledge and love of the culture and people is as much a part of her stories as are the plots, they enhance them even as they are supplying an amazing foundation for her characters and world building.
Here Tasukada gives us Sato, shy nerd accountant at a anime studio and Aoi, a voice actor just becoming popular who meet at an anime store. Between them, they have raised enough walls that it will take time for them to work their way to the relationship they want and need. I loved that Sato goes with his family to the shrine and makes a wish for romance. It's sweet and so innocent in a way. Plus a great contrast to Aoi, who is scrambling just to make ends meet and is much more street wise.
If you've read the author's stories, then you know this is a slow-burn romance accompanied by terrific scenes that inform you about Tokyo and clubbing. Here's an example:
They strolled to the karaoke club. Sato rambled on about more aspects of his job. It wasn't the most thrilling conversation, but the way Sato?s eyes glistened with light when he talked about numbers had its charm.
White walls with neon lights greeted them as they entered the karaoke club. Vinyl decals of classic anime characters reached from floor to ceiling. There was no doubt they were in Akihabara, the geek epicenter of Tokyo. If they ran through the offered songs, more than half would be anime songs from the past decade. Although, if Aoi really had to admit to himself, he was probably as nerdy about boys' love as Sato was with Gundam robots. They both belonged in Akihabara.
The receptionist handed them microphones and escorted them to their room. A white sofa lined the decaled back wall, and a thick binder of songs sat on a table. The room was small, but two people didn't need anything bigger.
What follows is a funny, charming scene where Sato and Aoi listen to CDs and sing karaoke. I ending up just smiling and laughing along with them, totally won over. I had also learned something new about going out in the Akihabara!
If you love romance, here is one to check out. It's a quick read, it has characters that you will easily connect with and a romance to root for. I loved it.
Cover art is perfect for the characters and story.
An erotic voice actor and an accountant at an anime company. After reading their first short story last year they now made some progress in their relationship, a big step, finally they have more money because of Aoi his job and they can afford an apartment in the city and live together.
Not much time because of their jobs. But eating is still a big part of their life. And they take time to get out together. They even want to have a pet....
Sato wants to make a big step....only Aoi has some horror from his past which stands in the way. Sato always stand-by for Aoi, Aoi wants to do the same.
Sweet story with endearing personalities only...It's totally me but I couldn't connect. Maybe because they felt somewhat immature to me, or because it felt for me a bit flat. They were both nice and sweet guys only the story had little depth. It was a bit to skittish and the end was less.....it just ended.
Each chapter takes a monthly glimpse into their lives together and is preceded by a delightful sketch.
Touching, with so many similarities to all young people in first romance, no matter what their sexual persuasion
