The first volume of Kazuki Minamoto’s manga Märchen Kacho to Nonke Kohai-kun (The Fairytale Boss and the ‘Straight’ Subordinate) was released on 13 September 2017. The series is being serialized on Tokuma Shoten’s website Monthly Comic Ryu.
It is a boys love story about the gay and fairytale-like section chief Inukai and his subordinate Takagi, who starts to get interested in him. The section chief is well-known for knowing a woman’s heart, because many of the women within the company come to him to get advice for their love problems. However, Takagi notices that the chief can only talk sweet words like that because he has never experienced love himself. Takagi kisses him spontaneously because, ‘I wanted to show you some romance’. Although he was never interested in men, he can see the feminine side in his boss and starts to think about his own feelings.
