Finder Deluxe Edition Volume 1 by Ayano Yamane

With Finder Deluxe Edition, you get a couple of chapters of the main story and then some side stories. The common theme is nonconsental sex – and that’s pretty much it. The artwork is serviceable, if a bit dated, but the clear purpose is not to present a story so much as titillate. Honestly, I found it a bit boring and a bit too graphic – and when they say painful, the reality would be that no one would be sitting easily for a week but here the characters just shrug it off like a bad dream.


Those who have read the similarly graphic author’s other work, Crimson Spell, will likely know what to expect here, just with a contemporary and fairly unrealistic premise. I felt her style worked much better in a fantasy setting, though. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
