Kanou Homare is a writer who is part frantic artist, kakkoi megane, just plain fucking cute and slightly tsundere— but more than that he’s a special brand of pessimist. His editor, Hidaka, has had a crush on him since forever. After quickly finding out that they both have actually liked each other all along, they start dating and become a fantastic baka couple.
Set in a world where felines turning into humans is totally normal for reasons I’m not going to bother going back to the CD to find out, Kuroneko no Asobikata is a pretty mindless, smut-filled story about a black cat who loves playing around until one day he’s caught by a super handsome, super famous actor (who’s actually a cheetah) and so begins a hell of a lot of sex.
WARNING LEVEL 5 INCEST. Ryou’s parents divorced when he was really young and he’s been raised by his mother since. The last time he saw his dad was practically ten years ago, so one summer he decides to go visit him in Kyushu. Not too long after he arrives (and the atmosphere’s pretty awkward between them), Ryou trips in the back garden and time slips back 22 years in the past…
Second Talk CD in a series featuring Shinsegumi characters. This one’s about Okita after he gets injured in the Ikedaya incident. He’s forced to recuperate and is taken care of by a girl whose parents were killed in the incident.
This is the first CD in a new series featuring characters from the Shinsengumi. Volume 1 features Saitou Hajime as he finds and saves a voiceless and nameless girl, then falls in love with her. Talk CDs aren’t much for plot, as they pretty much rely on you having enough imagination to believe you’re the ‘girl’ in this setting.
lerione: Just want to say I enjoyed your reviews very much, thank you! Samehara-kun to sasahara-kun is extremely hilarious~ please do recommend if there are anymore CDs similar to it. xD
I’m glad you like my reviews!
If you liked Samehara-kun to Sasahara-kun, I’m pretty sure you’ll probably enjoy: Danshi Meiro, Honenuki ni Saretai and Akanai Tobira! (I’d have more to recommend, but these are all I can remember right now?)
Danshi Meiro’s just as hilarious as SameSasa, with just a wider cast and more characters. Honenuki’s a light-hearted love comedy type with a super puppy-like seme just like SameSasa. And Akanai Tobira’s just—well, it has a special place in my heart and the uke in it is basically a man-magnet.
Note: This drama is based off a shoujo manga of the same name.
Snow White is a pitiful young girl, ostracized by pretty much everyone for her white hair and demon red eyes. Also, her mother’s a crazy bitch. One day, Mirror decides to send Snow White to another world and, as she is falling, he tells her: “If you want to come back home, make Alice king.”
Poor Snow White has no idea what the fuck is going on as she drops into Wonderland, straight onto pretty-boy Alice (who turns out to be a two-faced sadist) and finds herself in his care (despite his clear dislike of her)— thus beginning their adventures involving what I guess will be a lot of future shenanigans.
A priest. A high-schooler. A cop. A penguin. And oh, a ghost, too. It may sound like the perfect set-up to a crack-filled drama CD, but no. Instead, we get a fabulous original Drama CD with an peaceful and magical atmosphere a la Natsume Yuujincho. Chidori Miki, our priest, runs the Penguin Shrine where he and his younger half-brother, Tane, reside. Miki’s (the dark-haired, megane-wearing fellow) goal is to make sure their shrine strives on— but the problem is, though he gets amazing grades at the priest exams (or whatever, pardon me, I’m too good on the details here), he’s got no divine power (jintsuuriki) whatsoever. Tane, the high-schooler, has a total brother complex and, ironically enough, the divine power that Miki lacks— problem is, he’s got no intention whatsoever to take up the study. Then, Ten, the cop, who’s also Tane’s half-brother (as they have the same mother), is a cool dude with way less shit to worry about (don’t let my description deceive you, Ten’s my favourite). And finally, Enishi, the mysterious penguin who claims he’s God’s servant— but, you know, is actually just a drunk pervert— and other things…
Episode 1 introduces the setting and characters while also having a whole (fabulous) side-plot with a lost ghost.
Though the Drama may seem quite light-hearted, and though it largely is, its latter half delves deeper into the characters, their relationships and intentions— and does it well enough that I hope this series lasts on.
(Note: Satomi calls Haru “Shunin” throughout the CD. It’s apparently used to address a person of higher rank in an office, so.)
Don’t let the cover deceive you. Don’t let that cute robot puppy deceive you. This is an Atis CD and it’s going to rip your heart out, play tennis with it, then bandage it up and leave it on the table for you like “I’m sorry. Look I fixed it.” That being said: Kisaragi Haru is a normal gay salaryman who has a crush on this guy named Satomi, who works under him. It’s at a drinking party, with the help Haru’s awesome friend Enomoto, that we find out that Satomi’s also gay. But wait! There’s more! Turns out that Satomi has a crush on this other guy named Takahashi. Oh yeah, this is a full-on three-way gay love/friendship conglomerate with only Enomoto safe from the roller-coaster of emotions. With the soft pace and atmosphere you’d expect from a Boys’ Love story, comes a Shoujo-filled romance about three gay men— but mostly Haru— and their woes as we try and try to reach our happy, happy ending.
