Yoshida is short, scrawny and generally unattractive. To make matters worse, all the girls in his class hate him because Sato, the hottest guy in school, always uses hanging out with him as an excuse to turn them down. Is Yoshida just a convenient excuse or is there something more? Could this odd couple even make things work?!
“HIS FAVORITE is a charming story that wonderfully balances a light-hearted comedy with a deeper romantic melodrama. We look forward to yaoi fans all over the world discovering this latest release from SuBLime,” says Jennifer LeBlanc, Editor, SuBLime. “This series shows how true love can transcend someone’s outward appearance and how the content of one’s character and the desires of the heart are what really matter!”
Creator Suzuki Tanaka has garnered plenty of attention and critical acclaim for her manga works. After taking first place in the 2009 boys’ love watch list book, Kono BL ga Yabai! 2009, her series HIS FAVORITE exploded in popularity and led to the reprint of her earlier work, Menkui.
