Manga Review: Katakoi Lamp

Hello over there. How are you today, pornies? These have been interesting days, that's for sure. Many nice surprises every day, and Saturday? The best ones, to be honest. I've felt really good, and today's book made me feel good as well. Actually, it's a manga titled Katakoi Lamp, by Kyohei Azumi. Thanks to the publisher for sending me a review copy for an honest review!

Kazuto Muronoi runs a cute little coffee shop, where many people enjoy doing some work or writing papers for school. Among his coffee shop's regulars is a college student named Jun, who often studies there. It was love at first sight for Kazuto! Will Kazuto be able to find the courage to confess his crush before Jun graduates college and stops frequenting the shop? And to make matters even more complicated... it seems Jun has his sights set on another worker at the café!

I'm gonna start saying that Katakoi Lamp is so fucking adorable I couldn't stop smiling! The more I read the more I wanted to enjoy. It had a medium pace, slow enough to get you into the world but also fast to keep you immersed and interested. It was a nice middle point that helps you enjoy all of it.

I liked Kyohei Azumi focused on the main characters, although it is true I would have loved to know more about their friends, their lives, just dwell a little bit deeper into who they are besides a café owner and a student, and the people around them. It is true it could have had a better development, but it is good entertainment, a story to get your head in the clouds as you enjoy a simple thing.

The art of course is great. Clean, fluent, it kept me interested at all times. You can imagine how the characters are going to be like just be looking at them, and then they surprise you as you read and get to actually know them.

It is true that those final scenes including erotic content seemed to be unnecessary to me, but I liked them nonetheless. What I liked the most was a romance as natural and funny as Kazuto's and Jun's. Kyohei Azumi did a cool job with this manga. If you enjoy the beauty of simple things, have a laugh now and then, and smile at a cute couple as they try to make their thing work, then you're going to love Katakoi Lamp.
