11 Recommended Hottest & Sexiest Romance Manga (Part 1):

11. Beauty!! [美(ビューティ)!! / Beauty Research Club]
By Oda Aya (織田綺). When I first read this as a teen, I thought it was a cute story. I still think it’s a cute story, but I’m not as impressed by it now as an adult. The main premise is that the heroine, Makoto, has an aversion to beautiful men and she vomits whenever she sees one. It’s definitely interesting and hilarious, but in reality, I just can’t relate to this “phobia” at all. Because of the art style, the sex doesn’t look too steamy. It’s more on the cute category than on the “sexy and hot”, but it’s definitely worth reading.


10. Anata ni Hana o Sasagemashou (あなたに花を捧げましょう)
By Ōmi Tomu (大海とむ). Ōmi-sensei’s art style is one of my favourites from the erotic romance manga category. Her characters look gorgeous, and the way she draws naked bodies is just beautiful. This manga is not my favourite story-wise but it’s worth reading because the heroine Seri rocks. She’s beautiful, sexy, rich and has a strong personality. She also ends up protecting the hero Yuzuki. I like this kind of role reversals. This, however, does not mean that Yuzuki is a pussy. It’s just his personality not to reveal his inner self to the public, especially since he has a secret. The sex is, of course, sexy and hot. Not the best of Ōmi-sensei’s work, but definitely a must-read.


9. Akkan Baby (あっかん ベービー)
By Miyauchi Saya (みやうち沙矢). I’m not fond of this manga’s art style because the characters look like kids, but I guess it makes sense because the story focuses on teenage sex, pregnancy and parenthood. At first glance it may be just your typical comedy manga, but underneath the outrageous hilarity, it portrays a serious issue where naiveté results in a life-changing situation where two teens are  forced abruptly from their childhood to face very adult challenges. Kudos to Miyauchi-sensei for effectively balancing the comedy and seriousness. The sex scenes are more on the “funny” category than “hot and sexy”, but I think the strength is in the story and the message it conveys. Definitely worth reading.


8. Gekka no Kimi (月下の君)
By Shimaki Ako (嶋木あこ). This manga is so funny. The premise is not the most original—reincarnation and punishment for previous life’s sins—but it feels refreshing because Gekka no Kimi is basically told from the hero’s perspective rather than the typical female perspective. In this way, we steer away from the typical hot and perfect male interest to a male protagonist whose imperfections and insecurities are clear for all the readers to see. The sex is good, I’m telling you, although of course there’s a lot of awkwardness and hilarity. Definitely worth reading.


7. Tokyo Crazy Paradise (東京クレイジーパラダイス)
By Nakamura Yoshiki (仲村佳樹). I already featured this on a previous post titled “10 Recommended Romantic Manga With Strong Female Protagonists (Part 1)”. Like what I said in that post, I didn’t like this manga compared to other fans who keep on recommending this. It was drawn by the same mangaka of Skip Beat!, but the art style looks so different. Makes sense since TCP was first serialized back in 1996. The romance is slow for my taste especially at the beginning, but the sexual tension is definitely delish! If you don’t mind the older art style and slow romantic development, then this manga is definitely worth a read. Its main strengths lie in the story which is creative compared to other manga in the same category, and of course, the character of the heroine Tsukasa. She’s physically strong. Ya go,  girl! And I firmly believe that strong women are the sexiest! Who’s with me? Yeah!

6. Love Monster (ラブ・モンスター)
By Miyagi Riko (宮城理子). This manga is surprisingly hot. This is one of the corruptors of my early teens, just to let you know. The art style is more on the moe category, especially for the female characters, but the male characters are hot (oh yeah!). I’m not too fond of the heroine Hiyoko’s character because she can be really annoying, and I’m dismayed that she almost always needs rescuing by the gorgeous Kouro and the other hot guys surrounding her. Despite all these, however, it has an interesting premise. It reminds me a little of Black Bird but a little more toned down. Worth a read.


5. Hot Gimmick (ホットギミック)
By Aihara Miki (相原実貴). To be honest, I have a love-hate relationship with this series. I’m aghast at some of the developments in this series. There are so many instances that I wanted to strangle one or more characters, especially the heroine Hatsumi. I hated the abusive element and how it’s tolerated, even accepted as the norm in this manga. I think this is my biggest complaint, among many others. Looking past these, however, I still like HG because of the reverse harem element. And for those of you who’ve been following me for quite some time now, you know I’m a HUGE gyaku harem fan. The art style is so-so and the sex can be hot, but overall it’s a manga that I’m not entirely sure whether to hate or love. The story can be an emotional roller coaster.  Try reading it, and see for yourself.


4. Black Bird (ブラックバード)
By Sakurakouji Kanoko (桜小路かのこ). Oh my gosh. This manga is HOT~ So hot that you’ll feel your ovaries bursting and uterus contracting. The art style is gorgeous and the premise is absorbing. The characters, especially the male ones, are absolutely yummy. Wipes drool.  My only complaint is the character of Misao, the heroine. If she were more like Tsukasa (TCP) or even like Seri (Anata ni Hana o Sasagemashou), I would’ve definitely put Black Bird at the top of this list. Unfortunately, Misao belongs to one of my most hated types of female protagonists in shoujo manga—the weak, crybaby, insecure damsel-in-distress types. But at least she gets better throughout the series, finding more confidence and emotional strength. I just think that Misao feels too typical that she could be easily replaced for another similar character and the story wouldn’t change much. Overall, though, this manga is one of the sexiest and hottest. I love it so much that I read it 3 times! I’m already thinking of reading it again.


3. Kaikan Phrase (快感・フレーズ)
By Shinjo Mayu (新條まゆ). Ehehehe~ Now we’re talkin’. I’m telling you right here, right now. Kaikan Phrase is HOT and SEXY. Compared to the titles above, this manga feels more realistic and more adult. I’ve watched the anime adaptation and it’s also one of my teenage corruptors. I still have the songs from the anime on my current playlist. I’m still freaking in love with Sakuya—he’s so hot and gorgeous! However, like Misao (Black Bird), Aine’s character type often gets on my nerves. The drama is superb; it feels like watching a soap opera. And most importantly, the sex is more than steamy—it’s scorching HOT!!! The sex is first-rate and the romance can get heart-warming at times. Saying this, however, I’m quite disappointed that Aine doesn’t even try taking the lead sexually. She always let Sakuya dominate her…which is hot, don’t get me wrong, but girls who just go with the flow all the time can get boring, if you know what I mean. If you feel the itch, I say grab your guy and order him to scratch it like a queen. Don’t just wait in a corner, blushing, and hoping for your guy to notice and make the first move. Definitely a must-read.


2. The One (獨領風騷)
Manhua by Nicky Lee. To be honest, I think this series deserves to be #1 on this list because it’s just so awesome on the emotional level, but intellectually I think I did the right thing choosing the series below for the top spot. Moving on, The One is a must-read! It’s like Skip Beat on crack. It’s sexier, more mature, and of course, there’s actual sex. The art is gorgeous, by the way, so you get to enjoy the delicious bishies even more. Most importantly, the heroine Cane Lele is spunky but feels pure at the same time. She’s a talented model, and I like how she’s not submissive to the hero, unlike most of the heroines in this list. There’s a good balance of comedy and drama. Overall, The One is a personal favourite and something I’ll read again and again. Must-read!


1. Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori (天は赤い河のほとり) / Red River / Anatolia Story
By Shinohara Chie (篠原千絵). I already featured this manga on a previous list “10 Recommended Romantic Manga With Strong Female Protagonists (Part 1)”. It’s safe to say that this is one my favourite romance manga since I was a kid. The beautiful story is absorbing, making the sex only secondary, but nonetheless still a very important element to the romance between Yuri and Kail. In addition to the impressive political and fantasy plot, I like that the heroine Yuri is a strong character. She doesn’t start out strong, but as the story progresses, she becomes more confident, beautiful, and elegant. The art is from the earlier classic shoujo manga designs, so you might be put off at the beginning but I promise you that you’ll get past it and just be absorbed with the story. Must-read!

Tune in this coming Monday and you’ll have your next list of the hottest & sexiest romance manga from yours truly. You’re welcome. 😉

Anyway, I realized after creating these 2 lists that I still have a lot of manga under this category, so perhaps there’s going to be another set of lists coming in the near future. If you beg, I’ll think about creating another set of lists. We’ll see. (Do-S mode activated)

  1. I’m interested in The One, thanks for the recommendation! I’m just having the hardest time finding it anywhere to buy ☹️


  2. I’m looking forward for more recommendations for hot and sexy manga. I read all of the manga that you recommend and it was awesome. All are on point.

  3. The One IS freaking awesome, although I personally thought it started to slip towards the end. But I remember Akkan Baby, which I loved way back in the days….haha your blog is great because it reminds me of all the manga I’ve forgotten over the years. Great post!

    1. I agree. To be honest, the ending is kind of “too happily every after” for my taste, if you know what I mean. Not that I’m complaining much because i’d rather it ended that way than have a very unsatisfying one.

      Yes, Akkan Baby is good. I’m not a big fan of the art style but I got past that after a few chapters.

      Yay! Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I’m thinking of creating more manga and anime lists on 2017 about different topics. I’m glad that my lists remind you of manga that you have forgotten. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. I appreciate it. Cheers!

  4. Pokeninja just brought up Hot Gimmick the other day. Haven’t reread it in a while, guess I should drag it out and rerage again. It’s one of (is) the best worst manga.

    I also have Lucifer songs on my iPod. “C no Binetsu” is one of my favoritest songs EVER. It’s sad yet hopeful, full of mystery and a bit sexy, a ballad without being a slow song. I love it.

    1. Oooh! Then it must be fate. Ehehehe. 😉
      I know exactly what you mean. I have mixed thoughts about it. On one hand, it provides good drama and the romance is not bad. But on the other hand, the relationship dynamics are just plain frustrating.
      Oh my g, Pres. I do have “C no Binetsu” too. But I think I like “Datenshi Blue” just a little better. Ah, makes me so nostalgic. I’m listening to it right now, actually.

  5. oooh I loved Tokyo Crazy Paradise and The One!
    I’ve started Hot Gimmick and Black Bird but never got around to finishing them. But Hot Gimmick really was annoying. ESPECIALLY THE HEROINE.

    1. I know, right? Hot Gimmick can really get on the nerves. Even until now, I still can’t clearly say whether I love or hate it. But overall, I think it provides good drama and can be hot too. Black Bird is really good. The heroine is annoying as well but it’s hot and sexy. Oooh! The One is great. I love it too! As for TCP, I like it but not overly so. The heroine rocks, though. Go girl! Thanks for dropping by. And I hope you get around to finishing Black Bird. Cheers!


      1. Funny thing about TCP is I only realised it was by the same author as Skip Beat! (which I love even more) half way through when I suddenly realised the art was the same. I probably will get around to finishing Black Bird one day, it wasn’t bad.

      2. Ahahaha! I know, right? But TCP’s art looks more dates than Skip Beat. I’m surprised you read it since I assume that you don’t really like older art styles. But I guess it doesn’t look too dated ala 70’s & 80’s art style.


      3. Ooooh. That’s good to hear. I was actually not expecting for you to like certain manga published during the 90’s and before because of the older art style, so I’m quite surprised to hear that you like TCP.
