Automatic snooze device activated!
I can't believe how anyone who has actually seen the first volume
can even stomach buying the sequel... unless you're an insomniac
who has no other recourse because sleeping pills do not work anymore!
It must be the music. It really affects one's viewing because
First Loves' BGM can actually lull you to Never Never Land.
Add a boring, torpe (I wish there was an English word
for this) but perverted dude with equally lifeless, not to
mention mentally impaired love interests. Good gawd! Mr. Sandman's
got you reeled in!
The cover says that Kakeru's trying to hit so many moving
targets. Boy, that's a laugh. The guy fantasizes. There's
a difference between being passive and being active. Practicing
voyeuristic abilities don't count as being active either.
He actually gets lucky, however, which completely baffles
the sane mind. Not that it really matters, since the sex scenes
aren't even detailed. Ho hum.
To sum it up: First Loves is a big mind-numbing, monotonous
title with slow pacing, unimaginative music, and bland character
design. By golly! I've read romance novels with more imagination
than this one. If you want next to zero plot but filled with
sex-every-minute events, I'd rather recommend Office
Affairs or Four Play.
