Manga Review

The "yaoi" line of manga has its origins in bishonen manga developed in the seventies with titles like Princess Prince and Song of Wind and Trees. Bishonen translates into "Beautiful Boys", who are very willowy and ethereal. Yaoi normally is manga created by women and pretty much has a female-only readership.

Queer Eye for the Manga GuyThe Be Beautiful line of translated manga opens up its first salvo with Golden Cain, a complete manga by You Asagiri. Cain is an enigmatic model, with killer looks. When he meets Young Shun, sparks fly. Shun is enchanted by Cain, but is he simply vulnerable to Cain's attentions because he is still trying to get over the passing of his brother? Can Shun remain stalwart or will he give in to the passions of the killer Cain? What will become of him when he discovers the secrets of his supposedly perfect brother? What will he do when he learns the secrets of his own heart?
