Yuri Manga: Metersarete Kya- (メッてされてキャッ)

August 20th, 2012

Tanaka Minoru’s Metesarete Kya- (メッてされてキャッ) a collection from Ichijinsha’s Comic Yuri Hime, is a mixed bag. I can’t even tell you which of the stories are good or not, as that will largely depend on what you like.

Most of the stories involve adult women, as opposed to school girls, but frequently with a…let’s be generous and call it a “quirk” that precludes me from fully engaging with them

There always seems to be a manzai-style split between the pairs, one who is very goofy, flighty or irresponsible and one who is (too) serious, and also the one most affected by feelings of love.

None of the stories are bad – some of them are good. But I had a hard time sympathizing with the characters. Which is more about me than any flaw in the book itself.

Ratings:

Art – Droopy eyes make everyone look sleepy, but there are panels here and there in which the art stands out – 7
Story – 6
Characters – 6
Yuri – 9
Service – 1

Overall – 6

On the whole, I much more like the upcoming Rocket ☆ Girl!. in which Tanaka’s style works far better with an ensemble rather than a series of one-shots.
