What They Say
Tatsuya continues his carnal conquests in Europe when he is invited to visit Maria's family in Britain. There he enjoys the comforts of a lavish mansion, is given old-world "hospitality" from Cecilia, and meets a mysterious stranger on horseback whose beauty is outdone only by her incredible bustline!

The Review
Love triangles are fun when they start out, especially for the guy stuck in the middle of the relationship. That person is the center of attention when the girls either fight for him or are completely oblivious of each other's existence. In Blue Eyes though, Tatsuya is in no risk of losing any one of his three girls!! At least one of them is not only aware that her man is playing her but she is willingly helping Tatsuya satisfy his carnal desires. While on a short summer trip to the sea, Hoshino-chan seduces Maria and then lures the busty blue-eyed beauty into Tatsuya's non-stop weekend of three-way ecstasy!

With every new volume of Blue Eyes, I begin to question what the mangaka's motivation is with this title. At first, Blue Eyes looked like an almost decent erotic romance between two lovers bound by fate. As soon as new challenges were introduced to lead character Tatsuya, his personality and sexual behavior began to change and very quickly. Suddenly Tatsuya became very aggressive. He was using the women around him. And while I didn't have an issue with such deceptive behavior, I felt these women deserved better. Tatsuya isn't good looking. He isn't that kind. And he is not against using questionable tactics to get what he wants.

What happened to his love for Maria's big blue eyes? Tatsuya consistently claims his motivations are purely based on his love for his women. I think he is thinking with something else besides his heart.

Blue Eyes is a rare eromanga series and for that reason alone I would recommend it. However, if the romance that was present in volume one sold you on this property, don't get too hung up on that. This is an eromanga after all. Sigh.
