Mizuo Yanase has fallen back in time to Feudal Japan. Mistaken for a living Buddha, he is now the good luck charm of Takakage Koichiro Fujima’s army. On top of that, Takakage wants Mizuo as his personal page, a boy meant to share his bed. Mizuo wants to go home but he can’t deny his growing feelings for Takakage that make him want to stay.
Kissing, pressed bodies, suggestive positions
I love Time Travel Romance, so of course I love this manga. Everyone is so accepting, reverent even, of Mizuo because they think he’s a living Buddha rather than a human displaced in time. One of the things a Time Travel author must do is keep the character from being killed as a witch or demon and Himawari-sensei did a wonderful job.
Mizuo and Takakage are perfect for each other because they are opposites. Their strengths make up for the other’s weaknesses. The supporting cast is believable and makes the reader want to know what happens to them.
For a sweet action Time Travel, this is the book you want to read.
