Originally serialized in Comic X-Eros from the August 2019 installment, The Stocking Lady Next Door is a thirty-page story from creator Izure, who has seventeen other works on the service. This marked my third experience with this particular creator, something I wanted to keep up more with but had a hard time getting to reading as much as I wanted for a while. Izure’s appeal is in both character designs and the flow of the action while also having some fun story material that I enjoyed with their Promise and Little Black Flower chapters. So getting to take another dive into the world of Izure was completely up my alley.

The fantasy of hentai is always going to be complicated and some people won’t be able to accept it, especially when it involves teenagers and those that aren’t. And in the real world, completely understandable. Here, we’re introduced to high school student Takahiko who has a fetish for stockings and how they make the female form look. Or, more specifically, how they look on Tsukimi. Tsukimi’s a young working woman that lives in the apartment building that Takahiko’s family owns and he’s been spending his time the past month spying on her through the close window that they share and watching her undress. She’s got lots of clothes and undergarments that are up his alley with matching sets that hit the fetish just right. Pleasuring himself to watching her undress is something he knows is wrong and feels guilty about, but he just can’t help it. Hell, even masturbates to her in the school toilet because when he thinks about her it just drives him nuts.

Naturally, she ends up catching him doing this one time and totally chastises him for it, and he’s hugely apologetic about the whole thing in a really big way. The problem is that over the next few weeks we get the two of them coming together at her place where she’s checking on him to make sure he’s knocked it off but ends up being more and more turned on by the way he desires her. Yes, creepy, but fantasy, so let’s move on. Over the book we get a range of different encounters that run a few pages with a lot of great variety. The stocking fetish is well played and it’s not until the end that they fully consummate the relationship, bringing a really good sense of tension and build-up to it. Izure creates a lot of very erotic situations that a lot of young men in a similar situation would imagine and brings it to life in a lot of very strong and well-presented detail. If I’d read this as a teenager I’d have to imagine someone was reading my mind somehow.

In Summary
The only thing that this story really needs for me to really enjoy it is that if the characters were the same age/post-high school. That’s my own quibble but it doesn’t detract from enjoying the fantasy concept and the beautiful presentation of the fetish and all that comes with it. Izure’s layouts are great, I love the character designs, and the attention to detail is fantastic. It’s a great story with it coming in at thirty pages that allows it to work a good setup and then expand on it over several short encounters to build the tension and anticipation. Definitely a whole lot of fun that came together wonderfully.
