Manga Review: Love Round!! by Hinako Takanaga

Rating (Out of 5): ~3
Publisher: Deux Press/Aurora Publishing
Release Date: 2009
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Two Knockouts In Love!

Pretty boy Kaoru Komatsuna is self-conscious about his feminine good looks and his cute, but girly, name. Handsome school boxing champ Junya Kubo just happens to pick up Kaoru's notebook and proceeds to make fun of his strange name. Kaoru gets angry and knocks down the champ. This inspires Kubo to desperately try to convince Kaoru into becoming a boxer. After doing his best to resist him, Kaoru finds himself falling for the relentless knockout, Kubo. This yaoi comedy packs a punch!


I picked this up solely because of Awkward Silence.  And even though this wasn’t that great, I will get more, because I love her.
This is about two boxers who fall in love, only one of them gets embarrassed easily and then gets violent.  Still, the other one continues trying and is devoted. 
It was a cute enough story, and some of it was quite funny.  The characters were okay.  The artwork is definitely her earlier work, and not nearly as nice, but more average.  It just didn’t stand out to me, mostly.  It was just okay.
