Review by Linda Yau

Packaged in a short 158 pages, Like A Love Comedy is about Biwa, an novice screenwriter, who after three years gets his chance to make it on a new cross-Pacific Ocean production. The star of the show is a young and hot Japanese actor. However, on the first day of his job though, Biwa bumps into Yamato (the actor), who has some attitude issues leaving Biwa pissed off.

The next day, the attitude issues are gone, leaving behind a nice talented guy. This novel was decent in the romance aspect, some laughs, and one sex scenes with a few kissing scenes. For a majority of the book, I was caught into the storyline that Morimoto had written. Where she mentioned plots of American television, I was instantly reminded of the shows that I have myself seen over the years. Even with the show that Yamato was involved in, reminded me of Martial Law several years ago with Sammo Huang.

Also when Biwa’s dad had a talk with his son about the occupation he was choosing. Sink or swim – is within the cutthroat world of the entertainment business, that and a lot of luck or the right timing. I was instantly reminded of American Idol. Sounds silly, but I felt that connection with the life lessons Biwa’s father had mentioned. I learned about some facts of the television industry, which makes it technical.

The verbal descriptions of who Biwa is and who Yamato were quite confusing and I felt it didn’t match the images. FYI – Biwa is the one with the dark short hair, while Yamato is with the long rock-style. Biwa is older than Yamato and their roles are reversed. Yamato acts as the seme while Biwa is the uke.

This is the second translated work of Aki Morimoto, her first being - Body Language. There are also nice illustrations within this book, with the front also having one color insert page. There is also an note from the author with some mentions of her favorite American television shows.

Lastly, this novel was an easy afternoon read. It would certainly leave you wanting to read more, but still learning about something you may not know about.
