Sweetness

I had sensei's works a long time, stuffing in my pc. Then, yesterday I read it. And I cant believe I hadnt check it before. The art is incredible, she draws stunning gorgeous characters. They're not only awfully pretty, they're well worked on, with thoughts, personalities and psicological stuff well defined. And the plot is well designed, although is not a complex or complete one -I mean, its still this world, and they're only people passing by, and its not a big production like Loveless-, but she has quite a touching way to express feelings and wanderings....

Whatelse? Well, I think this manga has become on of my favourites among all my collection -and believe me, I have a huge increasing collection xD Like 600 mangas, more or less xD-

I highly recommend it. Trust me wink

Maruya sensei's art is just absolutely stunning and i think i've just found my new favourite mangaka. what makes sensei's work so perfect is that the storyline is gorgeous as well.
this story will get you hooked from the start (come on just look and the rating on this manga) and has the perfect amount of angst and sweetness.

Romance! (Prince Included)   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Wow! This one has it all for a typical shoujo-style yaoi! Sweet romance for the traditional romantic, a little non-con for the fetish-er, plot for the academic, and psychology for the human behaviour studier. And art for the eyes to glut upon!

Its very happily-ever-after, but not before the reader is taken on a journey of angst and ponderings. It's not uber-dramatic or original, so it won't stick long in my memory, but it is certainly an enjoyable quick read in the afternoon!

I love this manga so far. Maruya Kae is definately a talented mangaka. I can't wait for D.P. to release more of this series, but when it comes out it will be a good one. The drawings are beautiful, and there is a new type of plotline despite the bishies. Truley a masterpiece.

I definately recommend this series for anyone who is looking for a story with an interesting twist and an uke struggling with his feelings.

The plot was amazing, though I got bored at the last second chapter.
It's amazing how the author showed the different sides of the 2 main characters and how their love developed so fast yet it might not be accepted by the society.
Happy ending is such a plus!!!

Even so this manga is - when I think about it - reallly nothing special. Not the art (typical for Maruya Kae) and the storyline (prety much average). It`s one of my favourie mangas! I can read it over and over again.

The art is plain gorgeous. Talk about major bishies =3 But good art isn't the only thing this manga has to offer.

It's a unique plot, if not a bit clique with who Leo actually turns out to be, but I'm not spoiling anything, plus, that only made the story more entertaining. What many mangas lack for me is good character development, but the characters in this manga felt real and were well thought out. Hikaru is not your typical Uke, he's one of those few ukes that you just can't help but fall in love with. Leo, on the other hand, is pretty much your regular Seme but he has his perks.

Anyway, it was a very enjoyable read and I felt entertained throughout the chapters. Definitely not a waste of time. ^_^

The art is beautiful in this manga--there are flowing Fabio-like locks galore here lol it's interesting to see how the mangaka combined Indian and Greek aesthetics to invent Leo's "national style"

This manga is not 100% THE BEST, but there's definitely evidence that the mangaka was going for a deeper kind of story with injections of wisdom that were really kind of moving--I enjoyed this manga a lot because it wasn't entirely a cliche

i could just faint from the pretty. the story isn't quite my thing; too unrealistic while i am on a realism binge. and even if i were fancying fantasy, this is just not gonna do it for me; i am 100 years too old for stories about princes from far-away lands falling for the straight-talking commoner. but it's certainly well enough crafted for its type.

i don't really care about the story here, as long as it's not total crap. maruya kae could illustrate the phone book and i'd buy it. absolutely THE prettiest boys in BL land IMO.
