He Does a Body Good

Jan 29, 2019

This is hands-down the best "Borderline H" work I've read. A wonderfully crafted look into the life of a low-end store clerk who's so unbearably dorky that he can't even get a girlfriend, but one day ends up with an incredible power that changes his life.

Story: Beautiful narrative that flows seamlessly with the art and content of the work. Some "Borderline H" series just kind of ham-fist a story in as an excuse to string their scenes together, but this one feels very natural and doesn't feel jarring at all. It's got emotional motive, believable plot events, and logical progression of events. Nothing feels like the author is trying to trick the reader, and everything is clear as to what is happening, where, when, and with whom.

Art: Absolutely gorgeous. I can't think of anything that would have made the art better for this work. Beautiful, rich colors, and all of the detail you could ever hope for in both the background settings as well as the characters themselves. Action is detailed, but clear, and calm scenes still carry weight and visual impact. There's even some really cool color effect details that are subtle but provide a great sense of context to the circumstance based on the color the artist chose

Characters: A great cast of beleivable main characters who have distinct personalities, likes, and motives. Individually the main characters all feel very well developed with a wide range of behavior and emotion, and overall the cast feels very deep as well, with characters who have an obvious niche and prominent character trait without being defined by those traits. The side characters are the only weak-point - I guess the point of their behavior was to illustrate the sheer power of the MC's ability, but even considering that there were some pretty obvious liberties taken to fling women and/or conflict in the MC's way.

Overall: One of the better reads you'll find, and certainly the best I've found in its genre. It has enough length to let the story mature and develop, but doesn't overstay its welcome. Nothing feels rushed or stunted, nor does it ever feel like it drags on. It will capture you and keep you scrolling until the very end, and you'll be satisfied with what you find there.
