Horns and a tail do really make the man ;) July 10 2008
By H. Carson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As with other works by Hinako Takanago, `The Devil's Secret' contains well plotted stories which roll easily from page to page, and again, as usual with her work, is positively brimming with endearing characters.

The primary story between a considerate priest and a boy who has mysteriously grown horns and a tail is fun and sweet. It focuses on the sexual kink of being loved by (what could be) a demon and their blossoming romance.

The next two stories are firmly in the modern day. One involves a serious (socially maladjusted) college student who takes a small stint in teaching at a local high school. He is then pursued (quite energetically and openly and during class no less) by a high school student, and though the characters are a bit exaggerated, it's a blast to read. The other story involves two college students and long distance and longing, and was an enjoyable read with a satisfying conclusion (if easily put out of mind by the other stories).

Our last stop is back in the land of demons, and it focuses on some of the most stunning (if unique - what with tails and wings) men Takanago has ever drawn. It's not a straight course in love for out poor...er demon..., but (if you are like me) you'll enjoy the smut and root for both the seme and the uke while laughing at the situation (that, of course, they brought upon themselves).

Artistic and Sinfully Delightful Aug. 10 2008
By Nicolle Ng - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a must read for all yaoi fans! The artwork is beautiful, and the main storyline is fresh, not canned. The men are beautiful looking, while still not looking too feminine. The storyline is straightforward and sweet, and the love scenes are graphically artistic, although not pornographic. What I love most about this manga is how humor and romance are perfectally balanced and interwoven into the storyline. This is a happy romance yaoi novel. If you like a lot of angst and drama, this may not be your favorite book, but you should STILL READ IT ANYWAY! :)

Pure delight! July 20 2008
By R.Parklane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You just have to love the main story, "The Devil's secret" of gentle Father Mauro and Raoul, the sexy incubus with the growing horns and swishing tail. Theirs is one sweet romance as the incubus needs sex to live and Father Mauro finds himself leads astrayed but in love. The little fun story on the devil Baldur (Raoul's elder brother), and his own treacherous incubus is equally delightful. Love Baldur's long "dress" and flappy wings! Takanaga sensei has done a marvelous job drawing this one. The chibis are just cute.
The other 2 contemporary romances are great too, especially "Before Winter Comes" which is just so sweet.
Lovely expressive artwork from this mangaka.

Yay!! July 1 2008
By K. Canales - Published on Amazon.com

I am Hinako Takanaga fan, and therefore own this product. It has cute short stories about a little "devil" who falls for a priest and a side story about the devil's older brother and his own lover. Really funny and sweet, if you have enjoyed any other of the mangaka's work, then this is a must have.

Wonderfully Adorable July 11 2009
By G. Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a must have for any Yaoi lover. It's made of 5 stories. Though only three of them have any kind of yaoi scenes in them they are all adorable. The first two stories deal with a young boy and a priest, as does the last one, in a sense. The third and fourth story are about different people. The third being about a student teacher and the fourth being about a boy who is coming to terms with a friends affections. All five stories have a sweet back story. And the manga is drawn wonderfully. Anyone who loves yaoi will definitely love this story.
