When they start living together, we can see how Shingo has trouble to handle simple things. For example, Kagami wants him to sleep with him in the same room, and so he puts Shingo’s clothing there. Shingo freaks out and reacts not knowing what to do. The couple solves things by doing sex, but Kagami decides to take Shingo to a date. Shingo worries so much, that starts talking to his friend and boss. Masato thinks that the couple is breaking up, but when he learns that all the moody behavior of Shingo is for a date, he’s relieved.

Kagami finds Shingo so cute that he cannot stop touching him and hugging him. However, Shingo wants something else too. The problem is that Shingo doesn’t know how to voice his feelings. Shingo is a stray cat, and isn’t use to be in a family. Living with Kagami is proving to be a challenge for him. He’s willing to do whatever for Kagami, including trying to go on a date and have no sex that day. They’re so much on each other that they lose it easily.

The day of their date, and after talking a lot with Masato, Shingo arrives home and finds a stranger. The stranger looks a lot like Kagami, but he’s very angry. He starts by mistreating Shingo, and then calling him a servant. When Kagami arrives, he’s surprised to find them both there, and says “older brother.” Shingo is surprised since he didn’t know about Kagami’s family at all. It’s obvious that the relationship between brothers isn’t good. The older brother has an agenda, and Kagami doesn’t like it. In fact, he’s pissed at his brother for just being unannounced at home. He’s a businessman, and soon he leaves.

The date is over, but instead, Kagami asks Shingo to kiss him. So he does, sweetly. This is one of the sweetest moments in the manga, since Shingo and Kagami just share kisses on the sofa until Kagami falls to sleep. It’s so cute.

The next day, after work, Shingo finds their appartment’s door open again, and inside a small version of the Old Brother. It’s Rio, Kagami’s Older Brother’s kid. At the beginning, Rio seems to be afraid of him, but soon he likes Shingo so much that he wants to play with him all the time. When Dad appears, he calls Shingo “house keeper” again.

This is made on purpose since Old Bro doesn’t like Shingo at all. When Kagami arrives home, he finds them again and he’s angry that they’re there without permission. The brothers start quarreling again about staying at home that night, and Shingo starts to freak out. He cannot handle the fight, and so he says that it doesn’t matter if they stay that night. The fight included Shingo, since the brother doesn’t like him and doesn’t want him there. So, you can see how pissed Kagami is, but how troubled Shingo is too.

So, when they go to their room and start kissing, and making amends, Rio appears and asks for Shingo. His Dad might hate him, but Rio is all about Shingo. The funny thing is that Kagami starts being a little bit jealous about the small leopard.

The next day, when Shingo wakes up, he goes to the living room and finds the impecable brother. Again, he looks angry. Shingo makes some coffee in the hopes to get closer to him and solve the situation. It’s then that the brother lets a bomb fall. He doesn’t want Kagami to be with Shingo. He’s just a stray cat, and they’re a family of leopards. Kagami should marry a girl, and have kids. Shingo is shocked.

You can imagine the devastated tsunami of emotions in Shingo. He has no family, and the closer he has is Masato, his friend. It’s been a ride to even live with Kagami. He’s giving his everything, and now Kagami’s brother is telling him that he’s not enough, and that the destiny of his boyfriend is another one. What will Shingo do? This can go balistic since Shingo isn’t exactly good voicing his feelings, and with family in the middle of things can make everything worse.

Despite all the graphic sex, Kuroneko Kareshi no Aishikata [The Book Depository] [Waterstones] is a delightful read that makes you think about love a lot. Being into a relationship isn’t easy. Both partners must work out a balance to make things happen. But what if one of the partner’s family is against that love? How do you feel? How do you fight back? What’s the toll on the couple? These are very harsh questions to think about, and this manga just opens the door to see how both members of the couple feel.

Kagami is on Shingo’s side. He doesn’t want to know anything about girls, or marrying someone different than Shingo. He loves him, and he’s ready to fight. However, regarding the weak state of mind of Shingo, he might need to groom him more than usual. On the other hand, Shingo might end up feeling that he’s getting in the way of Kagami having a family. What will happen next? I bet that the second volume is going to be a ride of feelings and hard situations for these two.
