Smitten by you! A yuri superhero romance!
When the villainess Honey Trap defeats the superheroine Rapid Rabbit, she sees her nemesis’ face for the first time…. and falls head over heels in love! Refusing to kill Rapid Rabbit, Honey Trap is cast out of Antinoid, an evil organisation with plans for world domination. Luckily, a kind soul takes her in: Rapid Rabbit herself! Now Honey Trap and Rapid Rabbit have teamed up to take on Antinoid. Can Honey Trap defeat her old colleagues and seduce the heroine at the same time?
Superwomen in Love! is hilarious. This is a point I want to raise straight away, because it had me laughing throughout the entirety of its first volume. Honey Trap falling head over heels in love with Rapid Rabbit upon seeing her face is just the start of it all. There’s also plenty of jabs at the superhero genre (unnecessary posing, enemies waiting for transformation sequences to finish, that kind of thing).
A lot of the hilarity is courtesy of Honey Trap, who does absolutely nothing to hide her thirst for Rapid Rabbit. Rapid Rabbit seems a little dense when it comes to Honey Trap’s feelings, though.
What tends to be a key ingredient for any entry in the superhero genre are the antagonists. The executive officers of the Antinoid organisation bring even more hilarity to proceedings, particular when we get to see them during one of their days off. Melt Out and Suigetsu Kyoka get the most focus.
To put it bluntly, all the characters in this manga are dorks. Lovable dorks.
It’s not all purely comedy, though. There are some more serious moments, typically involving combat. Honey Trap and Rapid Rabbit are superwomen, after all. They’re going to have to fight to uphold their duties as heroes.
This first volume of Superwomen in Love! Honey Trap & Rapid Rabbit was an incredibly fun read. A really fun take on the superhero genre, and something I’d be more than happy to recommend picking up.
