Teahouse, which began as a Web comic, became a bit of sensation for having *far* above average art; let's be honest - it's gorgeous to look at. To be fair, that's one of its criticisms as well: it's just gorgeous to look at, especially as the men are modeled after your typical yaoi bishounen. People complain that this is cliche or tired - as someone who unabashedly loves her yaoi bishouen, I don't mind riding this dead horse until it drops dead from exhaustion, especially when the men are drawn by such a talented artist. Still, if that's not your cup of tea, don't let that hold you back from Teahouse. Is the plot spectacular? Well, I'm not sure - it's in its infancy, so there's much to come, but after just the first chapter, it had me hooked. Do I enjoy soap opera, character relationship webs in which drama and sexuality clash for tension-filled panels? Nope. Is that what Teahouse is? Yep, and I think that speaks to some of its power - it's downright charming and gripping, and it manages to make you care about the cast, which is quite large, right from the get go. I did *not* expect to like Teahouse - I can't tell you how many times I visited the site, thinking, "Hm, not today" until I finally read it and was completely snared. Rather than label the characters as one-dimensional, I think Teahouse has smart pacing. The Web comic only updates once a week, so the writer/artist have limited time to hook the reader and demonstrate who this *large* cast of characters is, and I think they've done a really successful job. Yes, you can identify each character by a single trait, but as the comic has marched forward, slowly but surely, they've become more fleshed out with backstory and plot development, just like any series. It's, by far, my favorite yaoi Web comic. So, why four stars? Because I can't give it 4 and a half! Check it out online for free, and if you like it, be sure to buy the volume...for the extras. The extras are totally worth it.

this is a must have for fangirls and yaoi fanboys alike it's not a traditional yaoi but the story focuses on the multiple characters in this one setting which is a whorehouse in which i find unique. the artwork and coloring is goregous and the story line is a bit soap-oprea but hey who cares when there are hot guys and girls to gawk at if you wanna see more of teahouse, i recommend visiting thier official website they upload thier pages every Wednesday sometimes Thursday morning and trust me the shop section is worth it they sell things you will never find anywhere else!
