Originally serialized in Comic Kairakuten BEAST from the January 2021 installment, After the Cake is a twenty-page story from creator Nekomata Naomi, who has just about two dozen or so other works on the service. I’ve been hit or miss with their material because of the tags but this one had all the right ones, especially since I was in the mood for something a little Christmas-themed. The schoolgirl aspect wasn’t high on my list but I’ve avoided most of those for the majority of 2020, so one or two here and there can’t hurt. Most of the time, the school-based stuff is just so limiting in what they do with characters, not that the adults don’t have their same kinds of things, but I easily have a preference for one over the other.

The story for this is certainly a cute start one where we meet Kurusu and Masuda as they’re working the outdoor shift at the shop selling Christmas Cakes. This is big business and both have done well, so the shopkeeper gives them a cake to split and sends them off. While he’s a couple of years older and lives along, Kurusu lives with her mother but she’s working a late night herself so nobody is there. That has them going back to Masuda’s place to have a meal and enjoy the cake – with a quick stop for more food first. It’s a nice way to spend an evening but it doesn’t go quite as Masuda had thought it would. Being a bit of a quiet nice guy type – always the more dangerous ones out there – he discovers that she figured he was inviting her back for fun and decided that after working with him for a few months she wanted to partake in some pleasure with him as well.

Not that it was what he had in mind, though, which is why he’s shocked when after some cake she starts stripping down. Some of it is just that her expression is a little bland, but once realizing how he hadn’t intended it at all, she becomes a lot lighter and more fun in a way as he teases him and starts to really work him over because she wants to feel good, she wants sex, and she can easily tell that he’s down for it if he can just let go a touch. She’s definitely sensual and erotic about it all, knowing exactly how to get him going, but his hesitancy is amusing to watch play out as she looks to get him to realize that she wants this herself. It’s a good mix of things that unfold here and while our male lead isn’t all the detailed overall, including a lack of really seeing a face, it’s always good to see a leading female character being so positive about what she wants without it being so ridiculously overplayed.

In Summary
After the Cake serves us a delightful and small little Christmas story involving two people enjoying each other on a night where loneliness can be overpowering. It’s playful and silly at times and you can easily see that things will pick up again between these two as they do connect well and Kurusu might have found a partner that she wants to play again with. Nekomata’s works have been fun overall even if not all of them land well but this one delivers everything just right.
