Under Grand Hotel [manga rec]

Despite going into it thinking it would be bad, I really enjoyed Under Grand Hotel (Or "Under Ground Grand Hotel"). It's about two prisoners in an American prison, Underground Hotel, 30 feet under New York State. Sen Owari, 22, convicted for murder, is currently serving 80 years in security level 3, and his cell mate, Sword Fish, is in for 200 years for being the head of a gang, selling drugs, and killing. Sword is the Shut-call, the head of the prison gang, and, after getting raped with a broom handle, Sen asks him for protection in exchange for sex. Of course, after quite a deal of drama, they fall in love, and a multitude of convoluted plots mostly revolving around Sword's jealousy, the warden's strange obsession with Sen, or a fellow inmate's issues. However, it really is sweet, and I got really attached to both Sen and Sword. Nearing the end, it gets really tense, and I even almost started to cry quite a few times. Given as it's written by Japanese and scanlated by Brits, it's a little hard to believe it actually takes place in America, and love in prison is also pretty hard to believe, but if you can suspend your disbelief, it really is a good read. I would recommend Under Grand Hotel to anyone who likes sweet love stories, tense plots, a bit of rape and violence, and guys with awesome dreads. XD;;
