Heyyy, longtime reader, first time reviewer.
I purchased this book because I was a fan of Koshino's later work, Samejima-kun and Sasahara-kun, so I figured I'd check out some more of her stuff, starting with this, her first collection. As stated in the cover copy, there's a little bit of everything in here: fumbling highschoolers, boss/subordinate, some vaguely non-con stories, and a couple of stories about straight guys unwittingly falling for their gay friends/acquaintences (I admit I'm a fan of that last trope).
They're fun stories, mostly. I love Koshino's expressions--she does a great "wide-eyed panic," and her characters have this sort of energetic fluidity to them. Like they're sorta bendy, almost cartoony. But when I say cartoony, don't think the characters don't get down and dirty. The character designs may look like they belong in a softer BL manga, but the sex gets quite explicit. Also, mad props for lube and proper preparation (most of the time). There's even a condom in one of the stories (but only one).
Now, for comments on the localization. I have to be honest, this is a very amateur effort. The dialogue is pretty clunky, just not flowing easily, and there was some odd phrasing that makes me wonder if maybe someone on the team isn't a native English speaker. There's a handful of editing mistakes, including a particularly heinous instance of the dreaded your/you're (your penis =/= you are penis).
The typesetting is similarly so-so, with many words being hyphenated in truly bizarre places. Also, the leading is inconsistent from bubble to bubble, but maybe I'm only noticing that because I'm a finicky typesetter myself. Though I will say, nice work on the sfx. The fonts used are a pretty good visual match to the original lettering, and have generally good placement.
I hope the Guild team can take gentle critique to heart in order to improve on their future work, but I'm afraid this one is only a 2, maybe 2.5 for me. Given how much I enjoyed Koshino's other work, I think I would have liked to see this one released by DMP proper.
