Lmao I still think Caste Heaven is a little trashy, but I wouldn't give it too harsh of a backlash. It's a little too cringeworthy to be totally reprehensible.

I'm more accustomed to dark yaoi like the bittersweet poetry of Nakamura Asumiko instead of this kind of try-too-hard-but-still-ditsy sort of manga. Flashback scenes are like typical shojo and don't have that hint of nostalgia/wistfulness. I read it as tragic situations without empathy. Caste Heaven is like a critique on Japanese society but without the seriousness since its tone and formatting is like typical yaoi and characters are flat and over the top. The sex is like Psyche Delico's stuff because it's all dark and stuff but more kiddy since the characters lack depth and inner motivation/we don't see them get turned on, hence why I say Caste Heaven more like a critique because Ogawa Chise focuses more on the structure of the Caste System than on the characters.

Karino x Azusa's story is the best!

I loved Karino x Azusa couple, but I don't feel same way towards the others.
Kuze x Atsumu is hella boring and both, seme and uke are so clihéd that are easy to read; they make their story predictable and boring. The new couple that appeared in the story is better, but I still thinking Azusa and Karino are the best.

Azusa's personality makes the story interesting, he's so cool and seme-alike even he's the uke. His past is chaotic and his background is well created, he's the best character of the manga considering all the details Ogawa sensei has put in his creation. In Karino's case, he's interesting too, he is an abusive guy whose past is a mystery; all we know is that he's part of a rich and important family and he's obsessed with Azusa's natural charm and reslient personality. His inner self is kind and I'd like to know what impulses him to act the way he does towards Azusa. Of course, he may end explaining himself once Azusa had understood his own feelings for him.

I hope Ogawa sensei come back to the main story soon, is the best of Caste Heaven and the one most fans are waiting for to conclude. By the way, Azusa and Karino have the sexiest and most erotic scenes wink

Stay strong Azusa

When I read this manga for the first time, the first thing I noticed was that Azusa was so strong. His character is very interesting and strong that I can't help but love him. I was a little disappointed when side story interrupted the main story. It's not that I don't like the side story but because I like Azusa's story more. I hope Azusa will be saved by someone.

Why in the world the couple Atsumu/Kaze was created?

The story was interesting (yeah i know it's a weird plot, but it's hard nowadays to create something new, because yaoi thematic was quite exploited this past years, and authors always end up on the same tipical yaoi love story, boring of course, and this one was kind of different of those) but! what the heck with the new couple Atsumu/Kaze? it's soooo boring and tipical! (yeah i know that author has created that one to make the manga more longer and to create more expectation) butcome one, this manga was supposed to be different! Azusa and Karino are so much interesting because we don't know yet what will happen, that's what is good about that couple, the unpredictability! Anyways, i like the story (Azusa/ Karino) that story deserves a 9 to me smile

First of all, the premise doesn't make any sense. I could sort of buy the idea if it was a boarding school, but it was a normal school - STUDENTS GO HOME. Why in the holy world would anybody want to go thereconfused It doesn't make any sense!

I've read some dark, twisted shit but this is not dark nor twisted - just stupid.

Everyone is just like "ahh the second couple is better"...seriously!? Asutmu is plain, boring and does not have any special characteristics. He just follows the flow made by Kuze...i never like the unactive uke who easiy submit and has weak mind.

On the other hand, Azusa is just simply Interesring. He is strong-willed and arrogance, that's what make this story interesting. Moreover, Karino is like a Tsundere and a bit twsisted (which is pretty amusing) to bully the one he likes. His family background must have something to do with his curent personality (just like the twisted kuze's rabbit story). That's what makes him act twisted w the person he likes. Im sure Azusa will grow to like him if he understands the kindness behind Karino' cruelty.

Honestly, the whole idea around the plot is not bad, it is rather original. However, I can't help but ask the question, "why the rape?". I understand that Ogawa was trying to create a dark/psychological theme, but come on, rape is not an answer to that. There's a million ways to convey "dark" into a story. *sigh*, so disturbing when authors do that. Not Okay.

I won't rate this now, I am going to wait and see how the story unfolds. For now, I like it. Even if the rape part will probably take some points off when I rate it in the future.

This manga is unforgivably stupid.

Why does the school allow rape?

Why does the school do this stupid game?

Why does the school seem to have no classes?

How can a student get it trouble for reporting rape?

Why can students just leave the class at any time to have sex?

Why is Karino a little bitch rapist?

Why isn't it treated like a bad thing?

Why can't the MC (I forgot his name), just become homeschooled?

Why is it supposed to be dark and twisted but it's just weird and rapey?

Why did I ever click on this manga?

I've read a lot of BL and generally do enjoy twisted dark stories bc they're refreshing, but this one just feels disappointing in various ways. First off, just the overall story I have trouble keeping a suspension of disbelief that a whole school would follow this one card game (that anyone could start??) and everyone's friends would change by the card they find. It'd even be more realistic if there were more of variety of characters rather than everyone being either a manipulator, a pushover, or a "mindless evil follower". I think ultimately, I'm disappointed at the direction the story seems to be heading:

seems like Azusa will end up falling for Karino :/
It's not like I've never enjoyed a story where the rapist is forgiven, but with how this character is presented, I'm seriously disappointed. "Why is this series popular?" I kept wondering. There are better twisted BL stories out there...

People commented plenty on this so Iím just gonna go through what I wanna add then Iíll come back and edit this when I want later.

First and foremost, I prefer the second couple just because of my personal tastes. The whole time they started in such a sweet manner, my tummy was increasingly aching just waiting for shit to hit the fan because it simply must do so in a manga like this. I loved how Ogawa Chise sensei took her time sweetly building it rather than rushing anything. I dare say that when the bomb was finally dropped by the end of chapter 7, it was perfect in so many ways. Also, I appreciate how there are no annoying love triangles or clichés with either couples. I enjoyed the first couple plenty in a messed up kind of way. This manga is quite original (a rare word in yaoi land).

If I may fangirl, Iím attracted to the character design of Tatsumi (that delinquent/prep guy). Can I get a side story about him pleaseÖ

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I totally call that Kuze killed the bunny himself. That lovable sadist. The best of all though is that Atsumu is proving himself to be more than a wimpy character. I canít wait to see what will unfold in the near future for them. Atsumu is going to be a great character, I can so feel it.
