From Eroica With Love by Aoike Yasuko


Several of my friends had mentioned this manga to me for years; how interesting, fun and slashy it was. But I've never read any manga and what I heard about mangas in general wasn't very interesting. I got a bunch of book cheques for Christmas the year From Eroica With Love started coming out in English and when I saw the manga at my local Sci Fi/Fantasy bookstore I thought, "Why not," and added it to the pile. Yes, to learn how to read mangas took an hour or two, but From Eroica With Love was well worth the effort. I fell totally for both Dorian and Klaus. The manga as a whole is very well drawn, with lots of details. Some of the plots are a bit ... odd ... but they are always interesting, funny and enjoyable. Since then I have read several mangas and perhaps Eroica spoiled me, but most of them I dislike. There are some good ones; some that I enjoy, but they are far between.
