Bad start, gotten better later but not that much

The manga started out bad, extremely bad. It was like torture to get through the first ~20 chapters just to see something done. The main character was such a pathetic loser that even 30 chapters in the mangaka couldn't manage to make him likable. His drive, his situation and events surround him were all illogical, incomprehensible.

I wanted to like this. I really wanted, but it needed much more to deserve the "psychological" tag.

Not a bad manga per se.
It started of kinda bland. The characterisations of the teen prostitutes for example are absurd but after that story was over it got better and kind of interesting.
This manga though has NOTHING to do with the Novel "Crime and Punishment" so false advertisement there. Still it is kinda alright and the art is good. So try it it if you are interested.

Update: I take everything back volume 5 is horrible and illogical.No way can publicly known gangrape be pushed under the carpet that easily and the porn buisness doesn´t work this way.
I give up on this manga after looking at the rest of the raws. Not worth it at all. From a 7 down to a 3.

It gets worse and worse with extravagant situations that the author pulls out from ehem let's say pocket so as to push forward the story.I would remove (if able) the "based on a classic tag" from the description since the similarities are miniscule.The only good thing i can tell is that it has exceptional art.

I like the plot so far, and it shows signs of good development. The art is rather interesting, and definitely fits with the subject matter. A hesitant 10 that could change as the story goes on.
