    • This is the absolute definition of hard yaoi. Pull no punches, all the tropes and cliches, utter 18+ material. That's this book.And it's amazing for it.I like it when yaoi books don't skirt that line. I like it when they go hard, give no fucks, and basically shove a smutty book into the hands of people and stand back with a smug look on their faces.In terms of yaoi, this is definitely one of the best. It's cliched as hell. It has the seme/uke thing down in the most classic of ways. And it's fall [...]


    • After reading Embracing Love Starting with a Kiss plot seemed quite bad in comparison. The main couple lacked the romance vibe at the very beginning, but towards the end the plot actually got better. Hopefully the next book brings out more of their charachters.



    • Tohru’s father, a Yakuza boss, sends him away to a family-owned island in order to keep him safe. Tohru has yet to take his place in the family business, although he’s desirous of doing so, but his slender build and pretty face hold him back, and no one takes him seriously. Shinya sends Matsumi, son of his second-in-command, Kiria, as Tohru’s bodyguard, with strict instructions not to return until someone comes for them. The only way on and off the island is the boat that only Matsumi can [...]


    • A few weeks ago I read, Starting With a Kiss (Kiss Ariki), story and art by Youka Nitta. Other manga by the same author that I've thoroughly enjoyed are Haru wo Daiteita (Embracing Love) and The Prime Minister's Secret Diplomacy. Known for her sexy, black haired characters and plots that are almost always yakuza based, I can't resist sneaking a peak at her website at least once a month to see what's new. When a gang feud erupts, the son of a yakuza boss, Tohru, is exiled on a deserted island to [...]


    • Youka Nitta’s men don’t vary much in physical appearance from one book to another. But there are still subtle but telling differences to differentiate between the characters of one series and another.In this novel, we are dealing with the yakuza, a group much popularized in the manga genre. However, the story starts off away from the main action, with two very different characters situated on a deserted island.Ah, a perfect setting for romance—or at least unbridled lust. And the author doe [...]


    • Una nueva historia de Youka Nitta ambientada en el mundo de los Yakuza o mafia japonesa. Aquí el argumento va haciéndose más elaborado a medida que avanza la historia. El hijo del jefe de un Clan Yakuza es enviado por su padre a una isla desierta para protegerlo de una posible revuelta dentro de la organización. En vez de ir con su usual guardaespaldas debe permanecer en la isla con el hijo de la mano derecha de su padre, un joven brillante que no quiere seguir del Yakuza y que ha logrado en [...]


    • Starting with A Kiss, Volume 1Youka NitaSublime2011Of the three manga I have read so far this winter, this one has the best writing, art, and plot. It is easy to tell the characters apart, the plot is not too unbelievable, and the sex is consensual (thank goodness). I can actually see my self reading another volume.3 stars.


    • First of all I want to make it clear that I am very biased when it comes to Youka Nitta. Haru Wo Daiteita was the very first graphic yaoi manga I ever laid eyes on and I am very grateful for that :P So this is Youka Nitta with yakuza and angst, what more do I want. Thank you Sublime for licensing this! The volume also includes the short LOL Theater which was a plus.


    • Volume 1-2 on goingGood story, and as always Youka Nitta's art is fantastic. I am kind of a fan of yakuza/gang stories with the seme and uke being part of the gang or a leader of it. There was some subterfuge in the plot that was meh, but it didn't hurt the story. Tohru and Mustsumi are the main characters. No 3rd volume yet


    • Like most of Youka Nitta's work, I loved "Starting with a Kiss." The art like always beautiful and the story line interesting enough to keep you going. I barely got this book and I read it in one sitting and can't wait to get Volume two.


    • In the yaoi world you get a lot of yakuza stories but I will say I enjoyed the characters personalities here. The real reason I'm giving a 4 star though is for the short story at the end. Super cute couple and CANNOT WAIT to see how their story plays out.








    • OMG! Super hot. Love volumes 1,2, and 3. I wish there were more but the ending of volume 3 is perfect the way it is!
