Download Epub Format ↠´ 妓楼の戀水 PDF by ñ Venio Tachibana This was a decent book It wasn t super on my edge of my seat, but it wasn t a waste of my time either It revolves a brothel Misao is a male servant He has lived there for a long as he can remember Everyone thinks he is very handsome Misao is a kindhearted young man He has friends in the brothel where he lives He is slowly trying to save money so he can buy is freedom Then one day he sets his eyes on a customer named Masaomi Towa He is a wealthy and captures Misao s attention right away Masaomi notices Misao also Just when things seem to be going well, Misao is reminded Masaomi has come to see the very popular Ukigumo Why is Masaomi paying attention to Misao, giving his false hopes when he has Ukigumo What is really going on between Ukigumo and Masaomi I recently read an article about Japanese light novels, inexpensive books that originated in the 1970s and targeted adolescents high school and middle school students Although I m not the intended audience for such books, I decided to give one a try.
This book is one of the few Japanese light novels that my library offers in ebook format, so I downloaded it to my Kindle It s a yaoi novel, which means it features a romance between two males and is primarily targeted toward a female audience The word yaoi is an acronym for Yama Nashi, Ochi Nashi, Imi Nashi, which means no climax, no resolution, no meaning Love Water is a love story set in Meiji era Japan between a brothel servant and a handsome corporate heir Most of the action occurs at the Oumi Tea House, which is located in the pleasure district It s a short book that contains a prologue, five chapters I always forget how much I love Japanese novels There s something light and beautiful about the way they are written a lyrical quality that manages to be confined to minimal words I haven t had the opportunity to read many BL Japanese novels but the ones I have read have been by different authors and all give me that same feel I decided to mark the wording I liked in this book so I could go back to it later to use as inspiration, but in the end the book was littered with so many sticky notes that I m not sure I ll be able to pull out the words I wanted from the words that surrounded them This is a surprisingly gentle story about a boy raised in a brothel, the life he s never let himself imagine, and the life he s always lived I liked the main character because he was harsh where needed, showing that he didn t let the life control him, I finished this novel in one sitting, I just couldn t put it down Beautiful in so many ways the illustrations are gorgeous and the depiction of old Japanese customs gives you a sense of solemnity Great pace and nice character development, even though it s a short story Just the right amount of romance and sadness to keep you sighing and swooning at the turn of every page.
It has passed some time since I was captivated by a book in such way It was beautiful in so many ways the story was heart broking, the illustrations breath taken and the characters were so realistic and easy loving, specially Katsuragi who I find very interesting.
Venio Tachibana surely has talent and knows how to captivated peoples hearts with her exquisite love stories.
Very Interesting read Very in depth and there was a plot turn at the end that I 100% did not expect at all The plot itself was very confusing for me as it was for Misao.
There s a certain undeniable charm in romances set in brothels The forbidden love that will grant salvation to the caged bird is such an appealing concept that we can see it in countless stories Boy s Love is not an exception to this dark version of a fairy tale, whether in modern or historical settings read on The Red Queen
