From Canis Major Scanlations:

Expressionless Art. Everything else is Good.

I REALLY like this manga! The story is VERY interesting. It's not everyday that you get to see such professionalism in a Yaoi. Phobias, that's cool! His phobia it's an interesting and very good concept for a romantic genre, ESPECIALLY in the gay section! However, they are a bit slow on the sex, which isn't a bad thing. They take their time to slowly develop towards each other. If you don't like that, go read a smut. This might be too SMART for you...

The art is BEAUTIFUL. It's light, it's gentle, it's refreshing, and it's detailed...almost. Hell, even their DICKS look beautiful! No joke! The side views look pretty bad though, which pisses. me off because a side perspective usually brings out the attractiveness in a character. This person's art does NOT do that. But that's just a nit pick that doesn't really matter.

What DOES matter are the characters themselves. The uke, the one with the phobia, is pretty interesting. Unique in his own cute psychological way. Riku is nice too, though his crush was a bit TOO obvious. Oh, and are they sexy? HELL YES! But even so, I kind of didn't really attach to them that much. I mostly attached to Riku, because I forgot the uke's name.

However, even as I say these things, there's one thing about it that I don't like about them:





The uke and the seme just have blank stares most of the time. I mean, sometimes the uke will show a vary in expressions, but almost NEVER will the seme change his blank fucking state. Oh yeah sure, he'll curl THE WORLD'S TINIEST SMILE every now and then, but usually nothing. While the uke is a bit more expressive, that's not really saying much. I can definitely say he looks TERRIBLE when he's having sex. TERRIBLE. He...he just looks...BAD. Which is why I can't really TOTALLY attach to these characters because they look like DOLLS.


So, do I recommend this even still? Definitely. If a harsh critic like me is saying this, then you HAVE to read it! Well? Whaddaya still readin' this for? Get out there, find it, and READ IT!!

My pervy comrades, that is.

Hmmm, I see a lot of discussion on the "rape culture" perpetuated in this manga. I'm stuck in a dilemma because I agree, but I adore the manga at the same time. It's one true guilty pleasure - the storyline is great, the smut is great, and the art is great. Shirotani's (pained) expressions take the cherry on the cake, though. What's not to love?

1) The art is fabulous. I love its clean-cut nature, and both Shirotani and Kurose are gorgeous hunks. The sameface syndrome isn't quite bad (in part due to Shirotani's mole below his eye), though it threatens to rear its ugly head on some occasions.

2) The story's premise is unique and it started off very well. Even though there are many complaints with the story moving too fast, I thought the pace was alright. It is a problem that we don't get to see things from Kurose's point of view, because from the hints we've been given, he seems to be dying of sexual frustration. Yay to more smut!

3) Smut, the reason I read this *shrug*... the author delivers, and she delivers wonderfully. I'm officially hooked. Controversial opinion: I prefer Shirotani to Kurose, because he's such a tease. Aw yea.

P/S: in defense of Kurose's rapey S tendencies, he has shown to care for Shirotani.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Other than the first "sexual assault" in the clinic, he really hasn't done much to invade Shirotani's personal space. He respects Shiro for the most part: he doesn't coerce him to do anything e.g. drinking the water or taking the train, and only touches him when absolutely necessary. As for the remaining sexual encounters, Shirotani literally asked for it, as in - "please touch me there"?!?!?!? Just a point to consider.

The whole thing makes *me* feel anxious. What others have said about the story taking a wrong turn is correct for me. It feels like some weird torture play in the least sexy way possible. I feel terrible for Shirotani the whole time. My skin is absolutely crawling for him because Kurose is just awful and disrespectful. He really goes out of his way to do things which cross the line and abuse his partner and I have never been a fan of that(in manga or otherwise).

Breaking some rules of psychology, but also adhering to many. And the fact that there isn't a professional psychiatric relationship present (i.e. no monetary assets were transferred), I have less qualms about professionalism. The slowness and the sweetness is exactly what I wanted and have come to expect from this mangaka, but with the added smut that I wanted to see in Seven Days.

I liked it at first. Takarai's art sure is beautiful and the plot seems interesting. But i feel like she's trying too hard to make it smutty, S&M. And i seriously don't like it. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE dark, S&M, dramatic yaoi but this makes me uncomfortable because everything just develope too quickly
I will still read it though

I always love her works and I'm really excited to find this.
The phobia, I don't know much about the actual one, but I think it's portrayed pretty nicely, though maybe not real enough. But as everyone pointed out, starting volume 2 it became a disappointment. I don't like how Kurose
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
touched Shirotani. I mean, he assaulted his patient!! It's a criminal act and can make him traumatized

And surprisingly, Shirotani too
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I get that your feeling start wavering after meet Kurose. But is that a reason for not rejecting him touching you all over? And you even said something like "taint me more". wtf?!

And like that, suddenly it become one of those cliche-smutty-yaoi, with no real plot. If I want read smutty stuff, I would pick a really smutty title, not a supposedly fluffy story like this.

I think Rihito-sensei tried too hard too make a smutty yaoi. I love how she is really good at making a slow paced story and the characters are well developed. If this keep on, I would prefer she goes back writing shonen-ai stuff than yaoi. This way a good concept will go in vain because of your attempt to make a "yaoi" sad

I'll still read it, for the art though.

I'm so so disappointed of the way this story is heading... I have a high expectation on the beginning and because I really like this author I believed this will be great story. But this one, since the volume 2, is just great disappointment and I have to steadily lower the rating with every new chapter >_<

I was first intrigued with the possibility of slowly and carefully trying to treat a severe phobia, not realizing that this was yaoi. I was definitely sucked into the characters Kurose and Shirotani. The side characters also add a surprising amount of depth. I look forward to how Takarai-sensei will expound on "curing" mysophobia.

But wow. They are both super hot, and chapter 14 is the sexiest chapter ever in the history of manga. -dies-

The wrong turn

The story takes a wrong turn when we reach the second volume. When a character who was barely given any shadow of a personality at all in the first round of chapters still manages to lose his credibility, then we have a problem. I feel that the author was so anxious to set the plot moving that she rushed in and over did it, really. There's no way I would root for a person like Kurose to win over his case. Not that Shirotani-san was all that lovable either (so inconsistent for a guy with such a troublesome problem) but hey, at least he was just minding his own business.

Some reviewers have pointed out that the phobia per se is well portrayed in this story. Well, I wouldn't know about that but I sure can point out a bad doctor when I see one. For starters, I have a very hard time believing a doctor who straightforwardly affirms that "love is a kind of dependence". Was this a hint for the audience? Are we suppose to feel that Kurose is mentally-unstable or something, that he can become a problem later in the course of the story? Because, if not that, than this is just bad dialogue. Then, of course, we have the total disregard for his patient's condition:

The sex assault. Does this even need to be said? It's was distasteful, the attempt, the location, the mood-- argh-- all of it

The beginning was alright I guess. Some things could have been done with differently to ease the pace and the mood but, overall, I was having fun. However, the whole thing completely falls apart as we go. Even the art is iffy. I've seen way better from Rihito-sensei.

I will continue reading it just to see if Kurose turns out to be a serial killer or not but that's pretty much it haha.

This manga wow. I couldn't stop reading, it really drew me in. I've seen the whole OCD I hate germs concept many times, and they didn't portray it will in my opinion. But sensei gave Shirotani a specific personality and stuck with it, even as Shirotani's character grew and changed there was always that one action that made me say "ahh he still has a long way to go". And the art was perfect! I anticipate more.
