Manga Review: Don't Be Cruel: Plus+ by Yonezou Nekota

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: SuBLime (VIZ Media)
Release Date: June 2017
Volumes: 7 + side stories
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1&2. 3&4. Akira's Story.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Playboy Maya catches studious Nemugasa cheating on a test and to ensure his silence blackmails him into doing whatever Maya wants!

This Don’t Be Cruel volume is a collection of the best side and short stories the series has to offer!

Maya and Nemugasa’s relationship had a rocky start. Maya, the playboy slacker, and Nemugasa, the diligent student, have two very different personalities and live two very different lives. These differences have led to some crazy misunderstandings between them. Their relationship certainly is a rough one, but it makes the good times that much sweeter. Read on for a collection of never-before-seen Don’t Be Cruel side and bonus stories!


This little book of short stories actually takes place after the first omnibus. It very clearly states when the stories take place, separating them between volumes. I like that, and it makes me want more for the later volumes. (It was kind of weird seeing Maya with his old haircut, to be honest.)
This was mostly filled with more cute and sexiness between Maya and Nemugasa. There's quite a bit of sexiness in this volume, which I like. There's some angsty stuff, which is just what these characters do, but during that, there's several cute moments. Since this is mostly during the beginning of their relationship, there's more angst than later, but it was still full of fluff and cuteness.
I'm a huge fan of this series, and this was a very nice reprieve. I can't wait for more.
