Yaoi makes me emotional.
Yaoi Mangaka Review: Sadahiro Mika

First off:

SADAHIRO MIKA Y U MANGA ALWAYS SO SAAAAAAAD!!!

Seriously, I just started reading a yaoi of Sadahiro-sensei’s called “Hai to Diamond,” and it’s already about to make me throw my laptop in angsty sadness and I’m not even through the first chapter. 

The actual review is kinda long so hit up the read more:

Sadahiro Mika has written such mangas as Under Grand Hotel, You Can’t Help Getting Hurt, Pathos, Vanilla Boys, and a lot of other really awesome mangas that ARE ANNOYINGLY HARD TO FIND ON THE INTERNET. But I don’t hold a grudge against Sadahiro Mika just because she’s really good at keeping her stuff copywrited so if you wanna read it you have to buy it and actually give her money. In fact, I applaud her (but I sure hope no other mangakas get any ideas from her).

Anyway, this is supposed to be a review so here we go:

I LOVE SADAHIRO MIKA. 

She is one of my top favorite mangakas (my number one being Mizukami Shin, but i’ll review her another day). The first time I ever cried over a yaoi was Sadahiro-sensei’s Can’t Help Hurt. And I couldn’t believe I actually cried during a super-mega-foxy-awesome-hot threesome sex scene, but I did. No regrets. It was JUST THAT GOOD. 

Her writing has a way of getting you really emotionally involved, despite the gratuitous sex that she is not afraid to show, something I greatly respect in her work. 

Sadahiro Mika’s style is vastly different from other yaoi artist for a few reasons. 

  1. It isn’t very girly. It’s rough and hardcore and not afraid to “go there” for the purpose of the story. There are no big-eyed ukes in her stories.
  2. She isn’t afraid to break yaoi rules. Her men switch positions from time to time. 
  3. She can effortlessly blend drama and comedy in a way I don’t think any other yaoi artist can do. 

She loves to break the mold. Her manga Under Grand Hotel was set in America (and so, it seems, is this one I just started reading). It can be risky to do something like this, but in the end I think it helps make UGH her very best manga. 

Her art is fucking brilliant. Her men are sexy in a way that is a bit uncommon in yaoi manga. They are sexy like MEN are sexy, not like bishonen are sexy (not to imply they aren’t bishonen, ‘cuz most are). When she draws the sex scenes you can really feel the passion in the art because both characters are really going for it, not just the seme doing the uke which is more common in manga. 

This is her idea of a seme:

And this is her idea of an uke (

these two don’t switch roles, btw):

Hot as shit, right? That’s because Sadahiro Mika is fucking amazing. 

She will always be in my top yaoi mangakas because of her uniqueness, mind-blowing art skills, and no-holds-barred writing style.

I cannot recommend her highly enough!

And most certainly, when I get me some money, I am going to BUY all the manga I can’t read on the internet BECAUSE SHE DESERVES MY MONEY!!

P.S. WHY THE FUCK HASN’T SHE GOTTEN A GODDAM ANIME WHEN NAKAMURA HAS TWO!??!?! 

P.P.S. Can you guys tell me if you like this at all and if I should do more? Cuz that would be nice, thank youuuu!!! XD
