Binge on this buffet of beefy Bara boys
If you’re a fan of Bara – the gay erotica that celebrates big beefy men in a Manga style – then you’re going to want to get your hands on the Transformation series.
Transformation has been created by Vincent – a Bara artist from Japan, now based in Canada.
In the Transformation story, we meet the Uesugi family. Masahiro, his wife Sachiyo, her father Shousuke, and the younger brother Hiroto.
Vincent has now released 13 volumes in the Transformation series – distributing them through Class Comics.
The story starts with Hiroto, the youngest brother. A handsome college student who likes hot guys and seeks them out in the gym after college. We also discover a secret and kinky affair between Masahiro and his father-in-law Shousuke.
In Volume 13 – the latest release – the story is focused on Masahiro and Ken. Ken is a photographer and journalist who Masahiro met earlier on in his adventures. In this volume, Ken has organised to take Masahiro on a train trip for a weekend mini-break. Ken knows exactly how to push Masa’s buttons – toying with him on a crowded subway, and then whoring him out as their train journey continues. Masa feels a bit humiliated but ultimately he loves the way Ken controls him and he’s turned on by the exhibitionism.
There’s so much to enjoy in this detailed story. There’s power, control, mysticism, ancient traditions and rituals, as well as plenty of muscular man-on-man action. There’s religion and rugby, and some really explicit encounters that will fuel fantasies that perhaps you didn’t realise would push your buttons.
This is the erotic gay Manga that you’ve been looking for.
“I’m inspired by lots of different artists – Patrick Fillion, Ismael Alvarez, Glen Hanson, and Gengoroh Tagame…” explains Vincent, when I ask him what draws him to the Bara style of erotic art. “I created my first comic, Hero, in 2010. Since then, my style has continued to evolve.”
“When I began working on the story that would become Transformation, I was originally focused on a young guy at college who enjoyed his school life and was having lots of encounters with other students. But then, his brother – Masahiro – was so appealing to me that I completely switched focus. Masahiro became the main character. He’s a guy who is married but is having this intense affair with his father-in-law.”
“I have an underwear fetish. I’m especially turned on by a guy wearing a loincloth, or a masculine guy wearing feminine underwear. That’s why this story includes a lot of Masahiro wearing different erotic outfits.”
