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


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

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!

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

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.
