In Love is Like a Hurricane, Vol. 4, it’s school festival time, and his classmates want Mizuki dress in a maid’s uniform. If that’s not bad enough, twin brother/sister combo, Hiraku and Miyabi Nikaidou, who were old middle school classmates of Azuma’s, have returned and they want Azuma for themselves. Mizuki is burning up with jealousy, but is he misreading Azuma’s feelings?
THE LOWDOWN: As a high school comedy, Love is Like a Hurricane is silly and inconsequential – nothing special; it’s one subplot after another about teen love and misunderstanding. As a yaoi title, it’s a festival of grab-ass, with practically every chapter punctuated with an exuberant scene of furtive sex between young male lovers. Such potency and virility is something worth celebrating.
POSSIBLE AUDIENCE: If you like lots of sex scenes in your yaoi, this is your title.
