About Sweat and Soap Manga Volume 1

Sweat and Soap manga volume 1 features story and art by Kintetsu Yamada.

Asako’s living her dream, working at the toiletry maker Liliadrop. But she has a secret: The reason she loves the company so much is that she’s ashamed of her body odor, and their soap is the only thing that’s ever helped her. So when the company’s lead product developer, a perfuming genius, approaches her in the lobby and wonders what “that smell” is, she’s terrified—but could it be that he likes it? That he likes her? And most surprising of all, she might just like him back…

Thoroughly Satisfying

by -

Asako is sweet and insecure. Natori is self assured and shameless. I loved this volume. Thoroughly satisfying for a first volume. Left me happy and wanting more of watching Asako learn to love herself (and Natori).

A Refreshing Change

by

This love story is done correctly! It's amazingly refreshing that this couple actually talk to each other when they're feeling down so no miscommunications are made. They aren't slow about their love progression, nor too fast, in my opinion. I think it's refreshing that there's a communicating couple, a cute storyline, likeable characters (both sides), and an actual developing love story that isn't too cliche. It's perfect.

Good but give it a few chapters to get hooked

by -

Supposedly was a one shot and was well recieved so turned into manga. It felt a little rushed and random at first. As if the author was trying to figure out how to go but around the middle it got interesting enough to make me want to read the next volume. The art isn't really my preference but the story is cute and I'm starting to like it more with the interaction of other characters with the main.

Cute, funny, and different

by -

I have never read a manga quite like Sweat and Soap. A woman with body odor and a man that finds it intoxicating? I love it! The male lead is wicked open and honest, compared to the heroine who is quiet and self-conscious because of her excessive sweating. Her sweat becomes his muse to creating new soap for the company they work at. As strange as that sounds, it's touching in a way, that her sweat does not turn him off, but rather a turn on. This manga is adorable, funny, and easily keeps your attention. If you like an interesting slice-of-life romance with an odd twist, this is for you.

Smell ya later!

by -

I went into this thinking "it's going to be weird, and I might not like it" but hoping I would be wowed. And I am pleased to report that I was! This manga is so sweet, cute, funny, and touching... and at times, downright steamy. I didn't expect all of that in a manga about... sweat and soap! Main characters are both super lovable, and I'm cheering for them all the way!

annoying female lead

by -

I went into this manga thinking it would cute and different and it is, but the main character is boring and has no personality. I really didn't find myself rooting for their relationship because of how annoying she is. Other than that, the story is okay and the art is nice.

Unusual but pleasant

by -

When I heard that someone in this series had a smell fetish, I was hesitant to order it but I eventually did because of the positive reviews. I'm glad that I did because the relationship between the characters is adorable and realistic.

Great Adult Romance!

by -

Honestly, I went into this series knowing absolutely nothing about it other than the summary given on rightstuf. Overall all this is a cute but also realistic depiction of what workplace and adult relationships might be like especially when one person in the relationship might be self-conscious/self-deprecating whilst the other isn't and has little to no idea what the other person might be going through.

If you were planning on purchasing ANYTHING, let it be this book!

by -

YES, YES AND YES.

While the title is not the most enticing, this story most definitely is. This is the healthiest and thriving ADULT relationship I may have ever gotten the pleasure to enjoy in a story.
Our working adult duo know how to COMMUNICATE (which may be my favorite part tbh) and it's enjoyable to enjoy a story where the main characters are honest with themselves and their feelings.

This story has some SPICY steamy parts yet does it in a tasteful way that still leaves the story feeling wholesome and light hearted.

I recommend this to ANYONE whether they're a fan of Josei/Shoujo stories or not!
10/10

Adult Romance?!? Yes please

by

A really nice take on an adult romance, it feels more real than most other romance manga. Nice to have the focus be the working world & adults rather than merely high schoolers. A little bit of a weird premise, but I’d absolutely recommend for a feel-good read.

new favorite series

by -

i really enjoyed reading this and it’s become one of my favorite series. it sounds a little weird at first, but it’s actually a good romcom series. if you like wotakoi, i would recommend this. it’s similar in the way that it’s an office romance but sweat and soap also includes a few adultish scenes (nothing too explicit even though the covers look suspicious sometimes) that wotakoi obviously doesn’t.

Didn’t expect that I’ll like it but I just read the first volume nonstop in a half an hour. I think it is a great start of a josei series!
