22 Best Smut Manga that are Must Read

Smut Manga is a type of Manga that is written by women, for women. It covers all the adult themes and sexually explicit stories and adds a richly developed level to it, mainly for women. With genres like Yaoi, Shoujo, and Josei, Smut Manga has become a highly popular Manga type. The focus frequently remains on building up romance and seduction instead of direct sexual activities found more in other Mangas.

Often smut Manga blurs the classification genres in shifting the focus in drama and introduces other elements like comedy and supernatural. In doing so, it takes on various serious issues that range from infidelity to romance, abuse to consensual sex- without seeming overwrought. For this list of 22 Best Smut Manga, we have curated a richly diverse group of titles that reach several topics and genres, so that you have a clear indication of the vast array that smut Manga covers.

Here is the list of 22 best smut Manga that is a must-read:

22. Hugo

When Jan develops deep feelings for Hugo Jamil, there is a lingering sense of uncertainty and doubt. Are the feelings natural? Or are they just on the surface-level? Hugo follows the relationship between these two characters and how they find themselves with each other.

But Hugo gets away with these stereotypes and focuses on a rather tender relationship devoid of any dramatic actions. The premise remains understated and straightforward, and it richly adds to the themes of identity and love. The romance that follows is genuinely moving and profound in its impact. Hugo is a masterful addition to Manga that you must include in your watchlist today!
