Overview

All The Time (Yaoi Manga) - Nook Color Edition

Sanpei is strict, abrupt, and far too serious for his own good. His friend and co-worker, Tani, is outgoing, flashy, and slightly airheaded. When Tani is forced to quit his job and take over the family business, he’s determined to take Sanpei back with him – as his wife! Sanpei’s liked Tani for a long time, but will the overly-serious Sanpei let Tani into his heart, or will he end up pushing Tani away before things go too far?

What do you do when someone confesses just as they move away? This is a story of two guys who find love just as one of them is moving away. Sanpei and Tani are co-workers, but personality wise, they couldn’t be more different. Sanpei is a hard worker, but he rarely smiles, and he is stern and aloof. And whilst he isn’t exactly disliked, he sure isn’t liked very much. Tani, on the other hand, is just as hard-working as Sanpei, but he is more easy-going, smiles a lot, and is generally well-liked because of this. Even though they’re completely different types, Sanpei finds himself looking more and more at Tani. Why is this? And then Tani suddenly quits because of family reasons, and what’s more, he confesses to Sanpei. What will Sanpei do now? Even though this story is not a comedy, it had bits that were very amusing. For instance, Sanpei really has no problem with discovering he is gay, but the moment it dawns on him that sometime in the (near) future he’s going to have actual sex with Tani, who is a *man*, he panics. As is usual with Ishida-sensei, the story is littered with little moments of humour. It’s things like these that really make the story interesting. Like Tani saying “Sanpei-chan” instead of “Sanpei-san”. And the first time Tani tries to make a move on Sanpei, Sanpei is so embarrassed, it’s “Instant Death x 100”, then it’s “Instant Death x 10,000”, then it’s “Instant Death x 100,000,000”. And later on, it’s “Instant Death and Murderous Rage x 1,000,000,000”. Again, as is usual with Ishida-sensei, there were numerous times I had to pause because something a character said or did made me laugh out loud. I wish there were more background info on the characters, but there’s enough to let the reader get attached to them. And you really have to like a guy who says to his beloved, “We’ll be so happy together that our faces will be wrinkled with laugh lines.” As usual with Ishida-sensei, all the characters are drawn very manly, even the uke. I’m giving this one a 4 rating, because it made me laugh, it made me want to know more about these characters, and it’s something I re-read (which I don’t do very often). Plus, it has made me want to read more from this mangaka. Disclosure: I’d like to thank DMG for providing me with the loan of a reviewer copy.

Tani and Sanpei worked well together at a Tokyo store despite their opposing personalities. Just when the two were about to discover if their feelings were more than mere friendship, a family emergency pulled Tani away to Osaka for good. Can both of them nurture the fragile, blossoming love in a long distance relationship when neither has ever been in love with another man before? This is the first time manga by Ikue Ishida that I have read so I may need to read a few more to get used to the author’s style. I was a little confused by the first chapter where the progression from their daily work together in Tokyo to the events leading up to Tani’s leaving for Osaka is too rapid and a little choppy. As I read the rest of the book, I realized that it is because Ishida sensei preferred to emphasize on the development of the main character’s feelings and behaviors during the course of their long distance relationship. What I enjoyed most about this book are the incredibly funny and memorable one-liners that peppered the dialogues of the characters. I find myself laughing out loud in delight over some of these gems. One of my favorite lines is when Sanpei realizes what his feelings for Tani might mean: “We’re gay? Yeah, we’re gay… sh*t…” There are many mirthful moments as both men have to acknowledge their love but are clueless about the logistics of being gay. I definitely want to express my appreciation to the DMG localization team, Defiant Endeavors, for making this manga such an enjoyable read despite is somewhat slow and predictable slice of life boys love story. This book has inspired me to want to check out other Ikue Ishida’s works that have been licensed, localized and published by DMG. Disclosure: I would like to thank Digital Manga Publishing and Defiant Endeavors LT for providing me a complimentary rental of " All The Time" for this review.
