A protective sister tries to stop a group of homophobes from harassing her gay brother. Little does she know that the object of her brother's affections is none other than their leader. Meanwhile, slick young student Kanome finds his crush studying in the library with no one else around and he decides that now is his moment. All he has to do is say the right words to score a little bit of action. Another teenager named Minori anguishes over whether to reveal his lifestyle to his family. He decides no one is ready for that, but his sister jumps the gun and outs him at the dinner table. Will the family be able to accept him or has Minori forever torn his family apart? These are but a few stories in this fascinating compilation of shorts featuring flirting, heartbreak, unreciprocated devotion, unfulfilled sexual passion, and more. (c) 2008 Tomoko Yamashita.

    BLACK WINGED LOVE VOL: 1
    REVIEWED BY SANDRA SCHOLES OF ACTIVE ANIME

    An unsuspecting sister finds out her brother is in love with another guy at school and realizes he has found love at last after all these years, but when the object of his devotion is the leader of a dangerous homophobic gang, she feels he is in for a bumpy ride if he wants him to understand why he has fallen for him. Mikhiko Motohisa's devotion is amazing toward the young man, but she thinks he is unlikely to show him much in the way of affection in return.

    He goes through a tormented phase feeling as though he cannot even tell him how deeply he feels, yet it is all the more cruel for him to hide away and want to bunk off school in order to also hide his emotions away from him. It is a double bind for him, but will he finally pluck up the courage to tell him the truth? When Ashida comes round to his sisters to play games and have fun, he encourages him to let him kiss him, but once he does it the whole episode ends up being told around the school making him feel even worse, and his sister want to beat the guy to a pulp.

    An emotional story that is engaging and at the same time sweetly comical in places. Motohisa is a hopeless case, a man in love with another man who he thinks might feel the same about him someday, but the real question is will he? Or is he just making fun of him in front of his no good friends for kicks. The reader will be able to see the problems he is confronted with and how he has to deal with them, but it doesn't make it any easier for him to deal with in front of or behind the scenes of his school. It is an interesting series of several stories and everyone will have their own favorite in the end.

    The art is shonen style rather than bishonen with the faces of the men and women looking more rounded and square jawed than rakishly handsome, but that just makes it look more realistic to the reader.

    IN SUMMARY: Brilliantly realised series of short stories yaoi fans will warm to instantly. The art is by far some of the best in this genre and from an up and coming mangaka.

    I usually don't write reviews but I must for this! In my opinion all the stories were VERY touching but I loved the 1st and 4th story the most! >u< When I 1st bought this book I regretted buying, after I had left the store, since Yamashita-sensei's stories don't really have "action", but by the end of the max ride home I WAS IN LOVE! I had to read it over and over and over!! It was just too cute! Yamashita-sensei does an amazing job with the flow and the emotion in her stories! I recommend this story to anyone! Its just so deep and I'm positive it will touch your soul like it did to me!! :D

    I really love this mangaka. It's a refreshing change to see people who aren't bishies having less-than-perfect relationships that capture those piercing moments of keen disappointments, hollowing grief, confusion, misunderstandings, and kind surprises that, if you live and love enough, you come to experience. Story one is painful to read. The cruelty of the possibly closeted boy against Motohisa, who so abjectly confesses his deep feelings, well, if you don't feel like crying for him at the climactic moment of brutality--then you have no heart. The second story gives us a respite from darkness, and yet we see how difficult it can be to be part of a huge family while keeping a secret, and how we can underestimate the love our siblings and parents have for us. The third story is fascinating as it's mostly a conversation between a yakuza leader's daughter and the man who has, essentially, raised her, a "thug" who seems gentle until a moment of understandable violence--given what we learn about his feelings for his yakuza superior. The moment where he calls the dying man and expresses his grief--egads. Wow. To a certain extent, each of those stories speaks of how we let ourselves become utterly unselfish, become used--even abused--for the sake of love. Not healthy, but realistic, as many have done, do, or will do so. The title story is especially interesting in how it shows us the inner desires of a genuinely perverted guy--and I won't give away his thoughts, as I think the shock value is best if less is said. But the true feelings of this deviant is genuinely appealing and affecting, except every time he shoots his own foot when he admits his deeper, darker desires that overly, like black wings, blocking out the light of his pure love. We kinda hope he has a happy ending, is ultimately understood as much as possible, even if we never hope he gets his darkest wishes. The mangaka has melded the appeal of genuineness and vulnerability with total whacko sexual impulses in a character the likes I've never seen in Boys Love. We kinda hope and are given some encouragement even--and man, I hate saying it--that object of his love sprouts his own sadistic wings to suit our lil masochist. Literary references in the title story are followed by other lit references in the happier little tale of two boys in a library. It's kinda sweet. The sixth tale continues the strong theme of miscommunication, and what a relief when the misunderstanding is cleared up. Having these two happier-ending tales after the great pain of the opening stories helps the heart ease up from clenching. It's nice to see the serious guy get his idiot-dude. :) The last original tale, very brief, is played for laughs based on, yes, a misunderstanding/miscommunication. Funny. Then we get some "short cuts" of 1. "deleted scenes" from previous stories and 2. a couple of epilogue-y feeling scenes. All in all, very much worth reading as long as you can take both great angsty and painful scenes and can enjoy some weirdo characters. :)

    I scanned the previews and read the reviews and chose not to read all the chapters but the ones I did look at (2,4,6) I enjoyed. And ditto on what the other reviewers said: the introduction is not an accurate depiction of the stories. Read the previews and look at the reviews to get a better picture. Chapter 2, very cute.
