BR with em
Edit: I finally decided on a rating for this after talking to my BR partner and other people in the comments.
As I said in my original review, there is in fact at least one explicit scene where consent is not given. It's not the only explicit scene in this volume, but I'll get to the other ones in a second.
Some of you might consider what I'm going to write about to be spoilers, so if you don't want to read ahead, don't read, but I'm not going to mark it because I feel like it's important to know exactly how this goes. Also it gets NSFW so you're warned about that too.
As the blurb from the first volume mentions, Shirotani is mysophobic (fear of germs), and his friend/therapist Kurose has developed a 10-step plan for him, in which Shirotani will have to go through things that make him uncomfortable, starting from smaller things like touching door handles and move on to bigger things like shaking hands with someone or (that's the 10th and final step) having intercourse.
In the first volume, Kurose seemed good enough to be patient and let Shirotani go at his own pace.
However, in this volume, Kurose proceeds to touch Shirotani without his consent, pushing through his repeated "nos". It doesn't matter that he's touching him above his clothes, it doesn't matter that Shirotani is shown to apparently "enjoy" it (more on this in a moment), since he eventually orgasms from it: this whole scene was not only about Kurose pushing Shirotani's mysophobia to an extreme level of discomfort for him (it was Kurose himself who developed the 10-step plan, and he was well aware that what he was doing was pushing Shirotani's boundaries to an extreme, since he still hadn't gotten through the middle steps), this scene was rape-y and not okay. This is something that seems to happen a lot in yaoi and I can't for the life of me understand why.
Consent is not optional and it doesn't take much to depict it in a manga in a simple but explicit way. A simple nod, a "yes" would be enough, there's no need for extra drawings or scenes.
Now, there are more explicit scenes after this one, and consent was definitely given in one of them in the form of nodding, however the initial approach was always started before that happened.
In the final notes from the author, she mentions something about doms/subs, basically hinting how Shirotani is a sub in the making. While knowing this explains why he seemed to enjoy being dominated by Kurose, it still doesn't change the fact that Kurose couldn't know that for certain before he touched him. It goes without saying, but even in the heaviest BDSM, consent to be dominated needs to be given before.
I won't be continuing this manga because there are many other ones and I don't feel like this is worth my time anymore.
Okay I seriously have no idea what to think of this. I'm not going to rate it yet because I want to discuss with my BR partner first and see what she thinks about some things, but to me this volume contained at least one scene of EXTREMELY dubious consent.
