Manga Review: Secrecy of the Shivering Night by Muku Ogura

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: June
Release Date: 2011
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:

When Himi was a small boy, he became terrified of the dark thanks to a trauma suffered during a earthquake. His dorm mate Furuya is afraid of bright lights, so what can they do?

Featuring a gentle tale of school romance that is born when two souls reach out to comfort one another.


Just to review this book, I had to go back and look through it and practically ended up rereading it and grinning. It’s so good!
The title story is super adorable, about two boys becoming roommates, and one of them is terrified of the dark. He gets a little better with some help from his roommate of the intimate kind… Super adorable, and I really enjoyed their chemistry. And their epilogue was hot and funny.
There’s a story about a teacher and his student, and another about two classmates. There’s one about two adults that meet by chance on a bench because of one of the guys kindness. That one was really sweet, and I loved the chance encounter and how they both tried to stay on the bench as long as possible to meet again.
The artwork was really pretty here. There’s a lot of nice steamy scenes, without being too explicit, and the stories are nicely done, no rushed parts. I really enjoyed it.
