Eni's Mini-Review: If someone tells you that Boys Love Manga don't have a deep plot - show him this awesome series. Beautiful art (Honami-sensei <3) is combinated with a wonderful romance story and adorable characters. Only the last Extra Chapter is a little smutty, the main story is entirely focussed on the relationship.

Edited to attend the current policies.

Rin was the firt shounen-ai manga I made my best friend read. It's the best choice (in my view) because of the great plot, the art (Honami Yukine's truly my goddess)

The last volume (the last "story", so the last volume without its first chapter) is a bit (just a bit ^^) under the two others because of the "harem" plot.
(Too much rivals is bad. I don't like this kind of story :p)

However, it's really a great manga, and I really hope it'll be published in France soon. Because we lack good yaoi books here. (We only have the usual ones -Fake, Kizuna, Zetsuai and gravitation- plus 5 or 6 others... and Asuka, currently the only active yaoi publisher, doesn't make good choices :'()

I really recomend it :)

And sorry for my english ^^'

This sounds like a great title, going to give it a try. I recognise the art style. Is it by the same one who does Desire?

Yes, that's the artist of Desire, Tenohira no Seiza and Be Thirsty of Love: Honami-sensei :luv

(different authors, though)

Rin! <33 One of the first yaoi mangas I read, I think. Eni recommended it to me, and it was <3 from there on. I need to re-read it >.>
