Waiddaminute... The prequel was shounen ai, but this one isn't? 1600 days, 23 hours, 8 minutes ago

Interesting characters but the execution is haphazard

I have to be honest, I was a bit disappointed by this series (the prequel as well as this). I like the characters a lot, and especially all the flashbacks of Itsuki and Hisame as children were hilarious, and several characters had interesting back story... but everything was so disjointed, often making me feel like I must have missed something between the end of one chapter and beginning of the next. Also, it had the potential to have an awesome plot that was really intricate and it didn't go that way, sticking more to short comedic effect, but then it was weird because some parts were rather serious and not comedic at all. It felt a bit like a story that was caught somewhere between taking itself seriously and not taking itself seriously at all, and as a result I wasn't sure how to take it either.

I was also hoping for more character development/advancement in the main characters after reading 6 volumes of them, but everyone ended nearly the same as they began. I'm especially sad that the back stories weren't worked with more. Hibiki and Shion's back stories in particular were really interesting and although we saw more of Hibiki, for some strange reason, it felt like the past was taken more seriously and therefore was less spastic. But even the cool things happening in present time were barely focused on before moving on to another random plot line. It was like reading 6 volumes of extended 4-panel comics.

Also it was kind of weird because it was sort of set up as shounen ai but it wasn't actually shounen ai. I'm not really sure who the target audience was for this. Non-BL lovers would probably not like Itsuki's obsession with Hisame, but BL lovers might get disappointed by Hisame's continual disinterest in reciprocating.

That being said, again, I really did like pretty much all the characters, and I love the character designs, especially Shion and Hibiki. I loved how many twisted characters were in it and how unrepentant they were about it, contrasted to Hisame as a nicer person. Itsuki and Hisame kept making me chuckle as a pairing. I wish there was another volume or at least a oneshot with these characters, but one that actually dealt with things instead of sweeping it all under the rug at the last second. As it was, I kept finding myself thinking that I hoped there were doujinshi that continued different thought processes or storylines so I could see further along the different options.

Words truly can't express how much i came to love tokaido hisame..
It really brought me to tears on how much Icchan had endured and suffered when he was little...
The love Icchan has for Hisachan is true and honest...
This is one of the best shounen-ai i've ever read!!!!!
I truly wish I had a bestfriend and companion like Itsuki and Hisachan for the rest of my life....

Better than the first one

This second volume is much better than the first one. The plot is deeper and most of Itsuki and Hisame's past is revealed and explained clearly in each chapter. I like how the flow of the story moves from one chapter to one chapter, as if they're connected in one line.

Also the new introduction of characters is adds spices to the manga. The flashbacks of how each of them bumped to one another is really interesting. Oh and I love the chibi Hisame! He's so cute!!! But one thing that I'm disappointed is the lack of relationship development between Hisame and Itsuki. I find their relationship never changing and also, their personality didn't change at all either. They're not growing at all. I thought I'd see Hisame to be more accepting of Itsuki's love but meh, he's still the same as ever. But well, this is an interesting manga. If you're a shounen-ai fan, don't expect any romance between the two main protagonist tho, since it's only one sided! But please read it because of the storyline. :>

It's too adorable for words, I love it, if you like shoujo or adventure, there's BL if that's what you're looking for but it isn't much if that's not what you're into, full of bishies and comedy, perfect

I only read this for the BL element and well, there is not much of it, or rather nonexisted. The adventures are boring and forgettable. I couldnt even finish it, only halfway. Read the end but wasnt that great either.
