Yaoi fans, dip into your new obsession! The beautifully-detailed, lithe bodies of the two “kings of the ballroom” fly across the dance floor as rivals build a volatile bond in this red-hot romance!
TO THE TUNE OF ANOTHER
While Shinya Sugiki’s learning to move to the sensual beats of Latin Ballroom, Shinya Suzuki’s finding it tough to master the waltz, especially without the help of music. Suzuki can’t help but resent Sugiki’s passionless, critical training; but when he flies out to England to watch Sugiki compete on the international stage, he realizes there might be more to that stoic demeanor. What’s more, when their eyes meet in the final dance, a feeling settles in Suzuki that he doesn’t understand, and can’t easily shake…
Along with Hitorijime My Hero, this is Kodansha Comics’s first foray into the popular genre of yaoi or boys love, gay romance for a (mostly) straight, female audience.
Inoue’s stunning art and sharp characterization will make fans of the genre swoon!

“The lessons begin, but things get complicated when feelings are brought into the mix. Both Sugiki and Suzuki are supremely confident, alpha males…It’s an actual slow-build relationship, and I love that.” -Akibento
