Flowers and Bees was something I'd been thinking about buying for the past 2months. But since I don't have a lot of money now, my manga buying has been cut down to one Volume a month. :( So, since it was my birthday, I thought "Hey! I deserve some manga!!!", so I went in the store and was trying to decide which one to get. And I decided... "Well, I want something new, but not something to hard to follow, my brain is fried!!!". So picked out Flowers and Bees.
Flowers and Bees is the story of a young man named "Masao Komatsu", whom has very bad low self-esteem issues. :( He is sick of girls making fun of him and calling him "Helmet Hair" and he is very uncomfortable with himself. He wants woman to fawn over him, he wants to look like a Bishonen(beautiful man), because he thinks it will bring him happiness. So he goes to the "World of Beautiful mean" where some somewhat looney "men" help him become a beautiful man by over charging him and making him look worse(most of the time). They keep telling him he needs to get confidence in himself, and other people tell him this as well as not to care what others think. Yet, he still believe's his looks are the key to happiness.
I *loved* Flowers and Bees so much because it has a very odd ball sense of humor, it is more adult(the rating is mature), but there isn't a ton of sex in it or anything, so I'm *glad* for that. :D
I would reccomend Flowers and Bees to guys or girls, because I am a girl, and I thouroughly enjoyed, and my brother read it, and so did he. We both laughed are rear-ends off.! hehe Its nice to have a guy uncomfortable with himself, I'm so used to reading Shoujo where girls are like that or whatever. Or rather, I am a girl and I know what Masao is going through, and I KNOW guys go through it to, so its nice to see it portrayed here, and very well I might add as well.
*HOPE* you *enjoy*!!! & God Bless ~Amy
