About Junjo Romantica: Pure Romance Graphic Novel 1

Junjo Romantica: Pure Romance volume 1 features story and art by Shungiku Nakamura.

Misaki, struggling to pass his college entrance exams, is in need of a tutor to help pump up his failing grades. Unfortunately, his only option is the cool and sexy Akihiko Usami. Usami happens to be a famous boys' love novelist, which doesn't exactly float Misaki's boat, especially since his main characters are "Akihiko" and "Takahiro," the name of Misaki's older brother and Usami's childhood friend.

Understandably, Misaki is pretty disgusted by the thought of someone using his older brother as his personal fantasy-material, but then after some tender loving from Usami, Misaki is also pretty confused. He may even be developing feelings for the older man... and when Takahiro introduces them to his lovely (female) fiancee, so begins the bumpy relationship of this odd couple, filled with comedy and pure romance.

One of my favorite BL titles!

by -

I really do love Junjo romantica, so if your really into BL (like I am) I highly recommend this author. She has another series that spins off of this one called Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi (Worlds Greatest First Love) that I also recommend reading. I would say the only complaint that I have is that the printing is a little cut off, but don't worry it's still readable. What I like though is that some of the books comes nicely wrapped so they won't get ruined when shipped. Well, I do hope you enjoy this series as much as I do!

Love at first sight!

by -

Junjo Romantica was the first BL series I had discovered and hands down still my favorite to this day! Junjo Romantica is an amazing series that really makes you believe in true love, and the characters are all so adorable, but also complex with many having depressing pasts, but the love these couples have for each other easily overpowers the saddest moments. The only thing I have to complain about is that only volumes 1-12 are available in English translation as well as the fact that none of the CD dramas are for sale in America, and the Junai Romantica books also have yet to be translated and made available in America! SOMEONE NEEDS TO MAKE IT HAPPEN OR I WILL DIE WITH AN EMPTY VOID IN MY SOUL FOR ALL ETERNITY!

Love it all


The absolute best boys love manga I have ever read. The story line is so beautifully done. You fall in love with the characters so easily. If you're just getting into boys love or if your a long time fan of boys love, this is definitely one of the top.

Product's Condition Review


As far as this product of Junjo Romantica Vol. 1, the manga came in great condition. I loved ordering this manga from here, because It had a beautiful spine, the pages werent stained or torn, and the edges were nicely sharp. I definitely prefer purchasing manga from this website due to is consistency in price, unless there's a sale ;) Highly recomnend purchasing Junjo Romantica from here than elsewhere.
