After School, First Part: Atsushi has already graduated (?) and is off job-hunting while Nozomi decides to take on a tutoring job as his behest to disastrous consequences. The chapter ends at a cliffhanger so don’t fret if you think I just cut it off.


Renai Metro tells the love story of two college students, Atsushi and Nozomi. The story begins as Nozomi is forced to interact with Atsushi as he commandeers her into breaking up the relationship of Shusuke (her first love) and Moe (Atsushi’s sister). Suffice it to say, things don’t go smoothly.

A couple of things to note. I kept the terms aneki and onee-san in the manga instead of translating them to just older sister as I believe that the subtle difference in meaning is important. There is no english equivalent for this subtle difference.

Also, even though I’ve tagged this under smut, the smuttiness does not come in until volume 2. So if you’re expecting slam-bam-thank-you-ma’am from the get go, you’ll have to wait a bit. If you use the navigation bar at the top, I’m placing this manga under josei (at least until I can figure out how to place it into both josei and smut).

As the title suggests, this is an anthology of six oneshots that take place in the office.

To Fall in Love with Ice Cream: It’s been decided that Irie Tamaki, nicknamed “Iritama” has been elected to find out if the resident work hottie, Ichinose, has a girlfriend because one of Iritama’s co-workers, Michi, likes him.

Why Michi can’t ask the guy himself is beyond me. It’s all very juvenile in an adult world or maybe this a cultural thing… being indirect like that. Anyway, that’s my two cents worth!

I’ll be upfront and let you all know that I’ve only read the first chapter so I can’t really give a synopsis of the story, just the chapter. So here goes…!

Chapter 1: Sachi befriends Julia at one of his photoshoots while he’s in college. At another  of Sachi’s photoshoots, Julia, who follows Sachi like a dog, is spotted and becomes a supermodel while Sachi doesn’t. Instead, Sachi becomes a working adult within the same industry. This is probably the set-up chapter for the rest of the series. I know, I know, my summary is lacking, but I love OUGI’s artwork so I’m giving this a shot and so should you!

Please note, I only have the first volume and, according to bakaupdates, there are 3 volumes so if anyone knows where I can get the other 2 volumes, please let me know. The other 2 volumes were not at my bookstore.

From this point forward, I’m tagging these kinds of stories as josei and deleting the smut tab as I find the smut tab misleading. As far as I’m concerned, having sex within josei stories is normal as josei is for adults. I think of smut more along the lines of hentai and seeing as I have yet to translate one of those, smut is just going to become a dead, lonely tab. As for yaoi, I’m just dropping everything under its rainbow banner if it involves relationships between men.

As the title suggests, this is an anthology of six oneshots that take place in the office.

Omake: A short 2 page omake about how Nozomi and Atsushi first meet.

This ends Volume 2. Volume 3 contains what happens to our happy couple as well as a few one shots.

Renai Metro tells the love story of two college students, Atsushi and Nozomi. The story begins as Nozomi is forced to interact with Atsushi as he commandeers her into breaking up the relationship of Shusuke (her first love) and Moe (Atsushi’s sister). Suffice it to say, things don’t go smoothly.

A couple of things to note. I kept the terms aneki and onee-san in the manga instead of translating them to just older sister as I believe that the subtle difference in meaning is important. There is no english equivalent for this subtle difference.

Also, even though I’ve tagged this under smut, the smuttiness does not come in until volume 2. So if you’re expecting slam-bam-thank-you-ma’am from the get go, you’ll have to wait a bit. If you use the navigation bar at the top, I’m placing this manga under josei (at least until I can figure out how to place it into both josei and smut).

Chapter 8: Atsushi and Nozomi as well as Shusuke and Moe finally get all their ducks in a row.

This chapter made me laugh and brought a tear to my eyes. It was a satisfactory resolution.

Notes: Page 40 — the book Atsushi is reading is called Copycat Crimes. The book title should make sense once you get to this page.
