Dog Style by Motoni Modoru


Miki Terayama saved Teru from getting roughed up by some punks. They’re both in love with other guys… but one thing leads to another, and they’re fooling around. Teru acts like a stray dog that hasn’t been fed in ten days. He consumes Miki’s love quick and rough and that can be quite a pain in the butt – Blurb

The name sounds crude, and yes, it’s yaoi so obviously… But IT IS SO MUCH MORE. Read this manga and that title will have such a level of sentimentality you do not even know. I checked the comments and I was not the only one who felt like crying, I mean, I was emotionally torn and thrown about a fair bit, ESPECIALLY 2 PAGES FROM THE END (gosh that SPOILER sort of just describing the happy or not ending, a bit of a waste of time really, happy ending SPOILER END was a close call), BUT LORDY IT WAS HEARTFUL.

That’s not even a word. Feels.

The plot, I will admit was confusing at times, as well as some of the hectic emotionally charged conversations, and this did adversely affect the cohesion of the manga and my ultimate enjoyment. It could have been perfect and it wasn’t. Traumatic rape in yaoi always upsets me, and it crops up in yaoi too much. However, here, this was essential to the entire plot , not some trivial detail on the side like it becomes in some manga, and was dealt with well enough for it to be an understandable inclusion. But the actual physical plot was really sweet ultimately. and as I mentioned before, cry worthy.

The art was really nice at some points and really not at others, not my favourite, but fitted the style of the manga well, and reflected the story perfectly. The characters were depicted properly through the art with image properly representing personality and being rather essential to the whole feel of the manga. (also art not much like cover shown, have a gander)

Blimey that was abstract. But true. To really understand what the hell I’m talking about you have to read it. Simple.

4/5 (last 1 for confusion and lack of perfection (whatever that means))
