Hello dear reader! Welcome to the first and most likely only 18+ review I will be doing. Today I am reviewing the esteemed SuBLime title, Dick Fight Island by Reibun Ike. I am the target demographic for Dick Fight Island, a young woman who is attracted to men and likes anime and manga. However, I do not like hentai nor do I like hardcore yaoi, ecchi, or most romance tropes in general. Even though these titles are not my favorite, I am willing to give them a shot every so often. Since ecchi isn't my taste I needed extra fortitude to handle such a “magical” book. Before reading I had a couple of beers, took a cold bath and meditated about my life choices. Since I wanted to focus on the plot I censored the book by blocking out anything too explicit with my fingers or a piece of paper. Using total censorship I was able to focus on the plot which hopefully make this review more legitimate! There was some censorship in the book, but that was a small bar that didn't cover much of the character’s private parts. I honestly decided to review this manga solely based on the title. The title is on the level of Fakku’s Lickety Slit, or Adult Source Media's masterpiece Pirate's Booty! My other reason for reviewing is because I thought it would be a cool story to tell people.
Dick Fight Island is exactly what it sounds like; guys fighting on an island using their genitals. But don’t confuse it with what you see at the nightclubs or on the Discovery Channel. There are RULES on Dick Fight Island!
This book has it all: there’s genuine romance, different dick fighting tribes with different cultures, and there's lube, lots of lube. At least the lube thing is somewhat realistic, or as realistic as it can be on an island where men fight with their privates!. They basically go to the Full Monty, which if you haven't seen that amazing film, it means they show full nudity. This book is certainly not for the weak of heart like me; it broke my fragile composure to the point I had to censor it myself. I wish they focused more on the plot rather than the hentai but, then again, it is hentai.
Let’s get to the characters and the art. The art is SuBLime, figuratively and literally. Character designs are very well done, and attention was paid to detail. The characters' designs are varied enough that there is something for everyone’s tastes on Dick Fight Island. Most of the characters are typical manly anime guys with a couple more effeminate guys sprinkled throughout. They all have different dick fighting weapons so that's cool.
However fun or weird this book may be, it comes with downsides. My mom found this book on my bedside table and there was a lot of awkwardness between us when she asked me about it. I said it was for my job and she replied, “Yeah right, just hide it next time.” I don’t think this book would be socially acceptable to read in a coffee shop or in public. Overall I don’t think this book is for me in the way most people who buy it would enjoy it, but honestly even if you aren't into yaoi this would make an amazing white elephant gift. Plus, it’s not like they can try to sell Dick Fight Island to a used book store, imagine how embarrassing that exchange would be. In conclusion, Dick Fight Island is smut, but it’s smut that doesn’t take itself seriously similar to Food Wars and Interspecies Reviewers, which is what makes it stand out. If you are into hardcore yaoi but want to laugh a little, this title is exactly for you!
