Satou Masashi no Heya / Masashi Satou’s Room is a one-shot where the ‘kuudere’ isn’t very kuudere/cold or emotionless, so much as ‘mostly straight’ or maybe even just ‘not super-duper/all the time into sex’
As the first page suggests, Satou Masashi no Heya / Masashi Satou’s Roomstarts with a love confession.
Masashi is nice about it. As he says, he knows about Riku’s crush. He’s known for a long time–in fact, he figures he’s the reason Riku is so gay. But, he doesn’t want to ruin their childhood friendship, so he says, “thanks, but no thanks.”
Unfortunately, this sends Riku straight (as it were) to the hook-up apps. The first time, Masashi sees Riku coming out of the storeroom closet at school with some rando date, he has a very un-kuudere response:
A lot of this one-shot, in fact, is Masashi getting progressively more freaked out by the sheer volume of ‘dates’ Riku goes through. The final straw is when Masashi sees one of Riku’s hook-ups threatening him. Masashi punches the hook-up out and he and Riku run off together to have a talk.
Masashi makes Riku a deal. Stop with this dangerous hooking-up, get rid of the app, and I’ll date you.
Turns out that one of the reasons Masashi feels like it’s al his fault that Riku is gay is because once, after stumbling across porn on TV, he talked Masashi into fooling around with him.
So, it’s not that he’s not gay… or at least willing to have gay sex, it’s just that, well, for starters, he thinks the first time should be special and, well, is maybe a little ‘demi’ in that he only wants it to be with someone very, very special.
Which, luckily, Riku is.
Cue: awkward but adorable sex and a HEA.
This one was short and sweet and totally worked for me, but I would not have called Masashi ‘kuudere’ by any stretch.
He is adorably dorky, though:
I totally recommend this one. The sex is mostly cute, rather than hot, but sometimes you need some cute sex, am I right?
