Shinya Sugiki, the dashing lord of Standard Ballroom, and Shinya Suzuki, passionate king of Latin Dance: The two share more than just a first name and a love of the sport. They each want to become champion of the 10-Dance Competition, which means they'll need to learn the other's specialty dances, and who better to learn from than the best? But old rivalries die hard, and things get complicated even further when they realize there might be more between them than an uneasy partnership...
First of all, I want to say that though this has BL, it's neither the focus nor does it take backseat to the sport of dance. It's romance AND dance, together. There's no other way I can describe it. It just is. This manga... embodies the meaning of 'sensual' right to its very core. The characters, the art, and the dance—they come together to form this beautiful piece. The characters are vibrant and lively, real and human. That's a huge plus in my book. The development of the relationship between the two Shinyas was so good, it kept me at the edge of my seat as each chapter progressed. A story of two competitive ballroom dancers and their passionate romance. Though I am no dancer nor have I ever been interested in competitive dance, through this story, I was able to feel the enthusiasm and passion the characters and the author had for dance. I am impressed with this aspect :) I highly recommend reading it. You can tell the author has enthusiasm in the subject they write, and not just writing for the sake of the story. The author also did a great job conveying the emotions through art and dialogue. I can't say this enough, but that's smth I don't find often enough. Dance doesn't take a backseat to romance and vice versa—the best way to describe it would be that they are intertwined and go hand in hand. Go read! Review written as of chapter 34.
