The Artist And The Beast by Coda
Item page:

This is another one of our currently bestselling manga on the site. Just like Over-cumming Writer’s Block, the art is beautiful and the layout is clean. It’s got a wonderful balance of story and eroticism. Unlike Over-cumming Writer’s Block, however, there’s a little less humor and a lot more steam.


Rui Kijima (above) is a struggling manga artist. She’d always wanted to be one, but her parents fiercely protested it. She hasn’t been eating or sleeping very well lately. As a result, she’s become nothing but skin and bones.

Concerned about her, her editor, Ayumu Ono (also above), calls her up. He suggests she finds a good guy to take care of her. Rui explains that she’s not interested in having a boyfriend and that she thinks love is a pain in the ass.

“There it is. The ‘pain in the ass’ line!” he screams out from the other end of the phone. He blabs on about how he thinks she should be interested in everything as a manga artist, but Rui hangs up on him.

She sighs and lies her head on her desk. “Please… give me an idea…”



She opens her door. Keigo Azuma (above) towers over her.

“Name’s Azuma. I run a money-lending business…” He pulls out an I.O.U. “Do you remember becoming a Mr. Yashiro’s guarantor?”

Rui examines the I.O.U. She recalls that Mr. Yashiro had shown up at her place right before a huge deadline and refused to leave until she signed as his guarantor.

Keigo continues: “I’d like you to pay back his $60,000 debt.” She hesitates. He suggests she ask her parents for help. She remembers her parents’ reaction when she told them she was becoming a manga artist.

“I… I’LL PAY IT ALL BY MYSELF!” she tells him. But, she’s only got $40,000 in savings. She asks him to wait for the rest. He says he’d be willing to wait for the other $20,000 in exchange for something else…


What will Rui do!?
