Tonight I read Yomoyama Akira’s new (released today!) manga 自転車男子に恋をした②, the highly anticipated sequel to 自転車男子に恋をした①. It took me three hours to read it (including the afterword), because I look up all words that I don’t understand. They become fewer and fewer though!
I really like this series. It has humor and warmth, and is very well-drawn. In addition, I like the main character Soma-kun. He’s a quiet guy but who always attracts attention. The author writes in the afterword that the idea was to make the manga a bit BL, so that male readers would want to be Soma-kun, and female readers would want to fall in love with him. I guess a bit of both applies for me. ^^ Not least, the biking scenes make me long for spring… but I’ll try to suppress those feelings, it’s much too early!
I hope Yomoyama Akira will continue to draw this series. The next Comitia is in February.
