From Fantasyshrine:

V.01 - Single Mind
S&D Securities -- the 4th Guard gathers suave and intelligent professionals who are highly trained in combat. However, a reckless youth appears and is hell-bent on sticking to the intelligence manager, Taki Keiichi. Due to a previous assignment, Taki caught the attention of the yakuza and is now being pursued by this persistent rookie to join.

"I'm not going away until you either come with me or kill me!"

Amused by his earnest request, Taki offers for Yuuki to stay with him under the guise of his personal bodyguard. But Taki starts to develop a desire to oppress the ever obedient Yuuki...

Kogami Shinobu is the number-one cool beauty of the Intelligence Department in the S&D Securities- the Fourth Guard, where suave and intelligent specialists gather in abundance.

I only to to about halfway through volume two, but this was just so incredibly cheesy that I couldn't take it anymore. It has some of the worst BL tropes out there and not much to make up for it. I definitely need emotions to feel real and make sense, especially when it isn't a comedy. This did not feel even vaguely real.

I am totally hook with this manga. I love the story, characters and side couples! I especially love the uke Yuuki. He is so honest and straight forward. The seme is what you would call a cool sadist. I love their relationship development and I will also like to see the other couples too. Men in suit and bodyguard at that are my weak point. I recommend this to anyone who are yaoi lover. I can't wait for more releases.

I really am a sucker for yakuza///bodyguard stories.

I really enjoyed it, because Taki was the bully kind, and the uke isn't a total feminine face >_> if you know what i mean

I would highly recommend, I really liked reading it.

I agree to the comments below, the story started really strong then the ending just got rushed up. Meh the ending wasn't that bad at least is a great ending. There's still some holes in the last chapters and i wish the mangaka didn't rush it up. Anyways the art was amazing and overall this series is great.

It was good until the end. The end made the story seem like the mangaka just wanted to hurry up and finish the story. It was too rushed, and in my opinion ruined all the possibilities.

I really enjoyed it and waited impatiently for the next chapters, but I think the ending is really left open. I hope there is going to be a sequel, because the last scenes gave some hints at a develoment I would love to read! ( I hope I fid not confuse you!^^) Loved it and recommnd it to every Yaoi fan!!!

Hmmm... out of all the BL series revolving around the themes of bodyguards and security agencies, this seems the most well put together in terms of plot, characterisation and so forth. In short, not a panel seems wasted, the pacing is fast and everything is very tight.

Edit: The ending is fairly open-ended but that's probably because there's a sequel in the works.
