Well, I just finished watching Kirepapa.  Two OVAs involving a father and son and their lovers.  Gay – obviously!!  😉

A kiss!

The story of the animation (I’m told there is more to the manga) deals with Chisato, he unbelievably young-looking, gorgeous, 30-something year old father of the extremely cute Riju, and his antics in keeping Riju safe from the nefarious attentions of his young school friends.  His efforts are in vein though, when it comes to one Shinsuke, Riju’s most persistent friend.  But it’s not Riju that Shinsuke is truly pursuing.

I must say it was cute.  The animation was pretty, and clean which I like.  The characters all your average bishounen which I also like. There were plenty of chuckles along the way although I won’t say I had any deep belly laughs.  But sweet, none-the-less.  And fluffy, if that’s your style (it is mine!).

I wasn’t too impressed with the over use of chibbi-kitty style for the main character, although I liked it in the first OVA, two OVAs back to back made it just a smidge too much.  Perhaps if I hadn’t watched them together, but left some time between, I would not have noticed.

All in all I give it, maybe, 6 out of ten.  I would have liked to see more development of the characters, and a lot more smexy timez! But over all, it’s worth a watch.

If you’ve seen it, why not tell us what you thought of it?

Thanks Trixilein for this information:
As it turns out the manga of Kirepapa by Takagi-sensei is licenced.  Which means the incomplete scanlation might never be finished.  We can only hope and pray!

Until then, you can read the incomplete manga here.  And I know the OVAs are available for download via torrent from aarinfantasy.com/forums
