About Don't Be Cruel Akira Takanashi's Story Manga Volume 1

Don't Be Cruel: Akira Takanashi's Story Volume 1 features story and art by Yonezou Nekota. In this spin-off series from Don’t Be Cruel, Maya’s cousin Akira Takanashi is burned by love and to cope he insists on keeping things strictly physical.

Polite and proper college student Akira Takanashi has a secret. Back in high school, he fell deeply in love with his teacher but was spurned. Now, whenever the pain of his heartbreak gets to be too much, he finds comfort in the arms of med student and notorious playboy Shimagawa—very adult comfort. Shimagawa would gladly go out with him, but Akira’s past heartbreak means he insists on keeping things strictly physical—that is, until his obsessed younger brother Jutta arrives to disrupt this comfortable routine!

The debate is over; You need this

by -

If you have the entire collection of "Don't be Cruel" then it is best to add this to the collection. Why? There is an actual chapter in volume 5 , you will literally need this if you are invested in the story. I love the mangka so much because you get great artwork plus; the story gives you more background to the issues of the past.

First I'd like to say that this is technically the fifth volume in the series and it is vital in understanding the story as events in it will be mentioned in later volumes.
Stuff gets crazy in this volume for the second couple.
This came with other items in awesome packaging.
