Noiz is a 19 year old manga artist straight out of art school who created his own manga, Disaster Code. Scouted at ComicCon by Keita Shimura, agent to bestselling author Shiro Ijima, creator of the scifi Fissure series, Noiz won the contract to be the artist for the Fissure manga. With work started on the manga, Noiz finds himself being pursued by Shiro but not only for his art. Shiro seems to be flirting but Noiz can’t seem to pin down the writer’s motives. Is the writer just trying to ensure the art gets done or is there some other game being played? Shiro toys with Noiz’ emotions giving him signals but then pulling back. After Shiro reveals part of his past, as the writer and artist for the manga Dawn, Noiz learns that there is a dark secret to Shiro’s constant womanizing and why he dates his female fans. Can Noiz keep Shiro engaged so he can reveal that he has feelings for the writer? Or will Julia, Shiro’s older sister, force him into an arranged marriage with Ai Amena? Ai is a powerful fashion desiger and could ruin Shiro’s reputation if he doesn’t handle her correctly. Julia wants Shiro to settle down and think about the Ijima family name but Shiro has other ideas. Find out how Shiro handles his family while pursuing Noiz in the second volume of the yaoi series, graphic noiz.
