Underwhelming

It was okay.
I didn't dig the art style much, felt the characters stayed mostly pretty distance and shallow despite the whole theme being (not new but) elaborate enough to add a lot of depth, especially considering this was 4 or 5 volumes long!
In regards to that length, the manga really was too shallow and not captivating enough.
I also must say, that the actions didn't have enough impact for my taste and my favorite characters were the 'bad guys', most of all Ten, who I loved simply cause he was a 'strong uke' type, or a seme-like-uke.
The manga isn't terrible, I liked about half of it before it started only dragging on as if the mangaka had more pages to fill than planned.

I won't give my ratings cuz I have mixed feelings about this manga. Firstly, LOVE the brother obsession-y attitude, it went waaaaay overboard which I find quite exciting!

But as others have mentioned, the character developement (except for the twins) were a little below average. I really wish that it had a little bit more depth. The other characters were as though to fill in blank spots while they let the main actors (the twins) play it out when in reality, those little blank spots were actually important.

But, all in all, great smex scenes, love the twins, story was good, acceptable read during your sleepless nights. 'Nough said.

This one was just so-so. I have definitely read much better manga. The plot was ok I guess. I generally like impotency themed mangas but this one wasn't executed very well.

As for the art... no, I certainly didn't like it. OCHI Chifumi just draws the weirdest eyes. It was simply hard to find the characters (especially the uke) attractive.

So... if you wanna pass some time I suppose this'll be allright, but you might as well look for a better manga.

For some reason this manga really appeals to me.
The art is so beautiful and the storyline isn't new,
considering the relationship is formed out of blackmail.
But despite it being fairly typical, there's just something about the characters that pull you in.
It's extremely cute to see how their relationship develops based off the idea of "blackmailing," as i said before.
The author brings out such funny and sweet scene's that make you feel so bubbly~
it's also pretty dramatic since the genre is focused on psychological ideas (which i adore in manga's)
but overall this was a good read!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Also don't worry too much about the whole brother complex thing, sure it's kinda creepy and ten needs some serious medical help but meh what can you do?

At first i thought this was nice. Well, i said at first...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
..then the story went insane..... I could not read anymore ... perhaps it was the personality of the UKE, which I found insufferable and meaningless, or the whole story. I think the mangaka's goal was to create a different and interesting story, but in my opinion the events have proved chaotic and sometimes absurd.

How can you not report to the police a madman who threatens and hits with a dagger, drugs people and sells drugs too.... I really don't see the logic in all this.

I understand that everyone has their own tastes. I also read other stories of brothers with psychological problems, but this seems to me that this goes too far, and in a way that is no logical.

Bunch of creepy and promiscuous characters. Naoto should just drop dead O:< and Ten is just twisted >_< I have never understood the the "logic" in some mangas "I'm heart broken or confused with love so I will just have a lot of sex with random people" x_x that's just gross. They should at least take a shower between sex partners T-T eww just eww. At least it had a "happy" end, I think o.O

I don't regret reading it, but it's definitely not my fav manga.

So I've read everyone's comment about this manga, and decided to give a shot and the only thing that came to my mind while I was reading this, is creepy.
Especially Ten. His obsession towards his brother is truly haunting. I thought he looked like a decent guy in the first few chapters until I feel all creep-ed out when I was reading the middle part of the story.

But other than that, the story is just...normal. I've read some other stories that kinda have the exact same plot, etc. Anyway, it's still a good read.

I feel kinda bad because my favorite character was Ten, even when he was acting all crazy (especially when he was acting crazy). I know many people dislike him but I found myself cheering for him. Obsessive love is just the best!
The other characters were far from remarkable, pretty much just your typical BL characters. Ten is the one that makes this story so good and I don't think the last two chapters do him justice.

Brother complex   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

While reading this manga the only thing I could think of the entire time was "holy crap that's far from brother 'complex' "

What i'm trying to say is it crosses the border of the typical "brother complex" cliches. So in so that it's nearly frightening while you read it.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Ten not only tried to sabotage his brother's relationships with other people just so he could have Arata to himself but he sabotaged them to the point of INTENTIONALLY hurting Arata which would result to Arata crying to him thinking "my brother's all I've got". In short he's like a freakin mastermind..its like he planned the whole thing from A to Z...removing third wheels thus shunning Arata from the world and imprinting in his mind that Arata only has his brother to depend on. It would've been a LITTLE bit fine if it stopped there but nooooooooo he literally had to go as far as to wanting to damage Koushi. Seriously, it shouldn't even be a brother "complex" anymore...it was more of "obsession".

Anyway, I really didn't like how the mangaka ended it without the brothers meeting again after Ten's visit to the hospital. I'm glad Ten also found someone...since loneliness might be the end of him. I wished the author prolonged it more with the brothers being able to meet and with Koushi and Ten reconciling. Also, not to mention Naoto-san's explanation on why'd he save Koushi. There was so many things lacking..it felt like the mangaka just rushed with the thought "ahh I better finish this soon as long as it's a happy ending it wont matter" in mind. But see, even though it was a "happy" ending for the "individual couples" it wasnt a happy ending entirely. *sigh* I really wish the mangaka thought or revised it more. or many there's a chapter i'm lacking? but it did say "the end"


Well, for those looking for stories with over-protective siblings then I guess this manga's worth the read. Other than, I'm afraid you'll just be wasting your time (in my opinion). I really discourage anyone who's got high hopes on this to continue reading it further. It really leaves you hanging. The reason I gave it a 4 cause if I gave it a 5 meaning the positive and the negative weighed out equally which didnt.. It really caught more on the con side. But i'm not giving it any lower than that since it did keep me interested until the end (cause I was dying so much to see if there were any IMPROVEMENT -_-)

It felt like the mangaka could not commit to going completely evil/extremely angsty on this one. Like you're watching a movie in it's early stages where everyone's holding a script while practicing their lines before the main take. I think the struggle between cuteness and angst was jumbled until both factors came out half baked. Nonetheless, the sex is good, the characters were not well-developed (except for the twins).
