The Day of Betrayal (Introduction to NTR)
It’s been a while since our last blog post.
June 2nd is known in Japan as the “Day of Betrayal”. June 2nd, 1582, was when Oda Nobunaga, one of the most powerful feudal lords at the time, was betrayed and killed by his retainer, Akechi Mitsuhide.
To recognize the “Day of Betrayal”, Irodori Comics has decided to hold a week-long “Betrayal Sale”. As the name suggests, this sale is all about NTR and Cheating stories! Over 30 select doujinshi titles will be on discount for a week. Make sure to get these manga while you can!
“Netorare”, “Netori” and “Netorase”
Here are some examples of each subgenre.
There is, however, a fourth subgenre that is being given its own label.
B - Boku ga
S - Saisho ni
S - Suki datta
“Boku ga Saisho ni Suki datta”, known as “BSS”, translates to “I liked her first”. This subgenre has stories where the MC and the girl are NOT a couple, but the MC has feelings for the girl. Often the MC is too cowardly to, or due to bad timing, hasn't had the time to confess his feelings. Since the MC and the girl aren’t together, there is NO “stealing” taking place if the girls has sex with another guy. Hence, a lot of hentai artists debated whether “Netorare '' would be the correct clarification of the “stolen-before-I-could-confess” trope. Thus, BSS came to be and is picking up a lot of speed.
As for all NTR characters that appear in stories, Kurosugatari recently released a list of common NTR characters. He ranks them based on “NTR Potency”, which measures how much psychological damage these guys inflict on Kurosugatari as a reader when he comes across them in hentai stories.
