Manga Review | Mr. Wolf Is Violently Smothering Me with Love by Abuku

Title: Mr. Wolf Is Violently Smothering Me with Love



Sakutarou is a human omega. Though male omegas aren't necessarily uncommon, there is still a bit of a social stigma around men being with other men and carrying children. As if that wasn't difficult enough, Sakutarou also has an unusual fetish: noncon beastmen porn. Since he was small, Sakutarou adored beastmen, but that innocent admiration soon grew into an undeniable attraction. The odds of him finding a human alpha partner who likes omega men are already slim. The odds of him finding a beastman alpha partner who'd be attracted to humans are even slimmer still. Interspecies couples aren't unusual, but marriage and long-term partnerships are rare and seen as a bit strange by the majority.

So, Sakutarou keeps his attractions to himself until he happens to start his heat a few days early. While out on the street, he ends up being picked up by beastman. The beastman carts Sakutarou away to a hotel, where the two have unbelievable sex. When Sakutarou finally comes around, the beastman makes an even more unbelievable claim: he believes Sakutarou is his fated mate. It's everything Sakutarou could've ever wanted, but it's almost overwhelming in how ideal it all is. Can Sakutarou find it in himself to accept who he is and the love that this beastman wants to give him? Or will he self-sabotage and run away from his happiness?
