Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Like most hormone-saturated boys his age, 16-year-old Mugi Tadano is obsessed with sex but timid about the prospect of actually "doing it." When he catches sight of lovely Yuu Tsukisaki changing into her bikini, he's both flustered and fascinated. He falls in puppy love/lust. Mugi's emotional turmoil intensifies when he goes home and discovers that Yuu and her smart-mouthed sister will be living there from now on. Then Mugi and Yuu are left alone in the house at night. Then they wind up sleeping in the same bed. Then she rolls over in her sleep and hugs him. And so on. Everything that happens is innocent but intensely titillating. As he gets to know her, Mugi's feelings for Yuu deepen; she really is a sweet person. At the same time, he's getting incredibly horny. He doesn't want to behave like the irresponsible people around him-but who wouldn't when Kobayashi presents constant crotch shots of Yuu. Kobayashi has pitched this manga perfectly at the adolescent inside most adults who are trying to juggle incompatible desires. There's no hint that Mugi's dilemma will be resolved any time soon, so readers can expect an endless series of titillating developments. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    When I thought I couldn't love Manga anymore...

    ... I found in Pastel a new reason to love the medium even so more than ever before. Pastel is one of those romantic comedies you come across quite often these days in the world of Manga, but different in that it exceeds in doing what it does best, storytelling. Toshiko Kobayashi does it well, and by well I mean in a manner which is rare to find these days. Off the start, the characters develop at a steady pace, which allows you to get to know them all well enough to write a biography about them. The art is also splendid, though fan service is virtually everywhere, and often may even overrun the overall plot however, Pastel is indeed a marvelous Manga. One of a kind in its broad genre and one of the best pieces I¿ve read in my life. I¿ve been reading Manga four about ten years now, and have read the best there is, and when compared to them, there is no surprise in seeing Pastel already among them.
