From Yen Press:

Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches. As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named “Zess,” whose face tugs on Yuki’s memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death. But when Yuki’s compassion leads him to disobey Zess’s order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he’s even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?

not bad as I thought

at first it was really, really difficult to get into it. I actually really didn't like it at first. I've read the first volume a couple of times and couldn't get past it. But later today, I stuck through it till the latest volumes and I must say it really isn't too bad. The first volume or two is a bit hard to swallow, but it gets better. Their past and what happened is what interests me the most.
The characters start to flesh out a bit more and more, and the cliches in the first chapters reduce bit by bit.
A lot of BL subtext just a fyi

I like BL and subtext, but this is just one of those series that no matter how much I try, I just can't get into. The characters are not that interesting, and the plot is pretty predictable. Maybe it's because I've read so much manga already.

I didnt want to finish this. It was dragging on and sort of episodic. Sometimes strayed from the original plot which is super annoying and not that i have anything against yaoi, it was labeled as a shoujo manga... Which is what i cam to read.. But yukis a boy. Maybe it makes sense in the end but it was so boring. Good idea though just not well executed.

I've read this manga up until nineth volume and I think I'll keep reading it.
The plot has some runfast and stop and there are entire volumes dedicated to something else that the plot, but is quote good and interesting. The characters presentation is detailed but needs four or five volumes: maybe too much?
Even if Yuki was a woman in his previous life, this is clearly a shounen ai (or at last the shounen ai subplot is very strong and not only for Yuki/Zess but also for other couples, I'd dare to say also for the twisted relationship between Reiga and Takashiro, But people that doesn't like shounen-ai can always look at those relationship like a strong friendship or love and hate feelings ). The manga is way more funny and Yuki is quite less dummy than in the anime. I mean he's cute and lovable but sometimes he seems too slow.
Anyway there are also characters appealing for someone like me who likes more complex/twisted and ironic characters like Takashiro, Tachibana, Reiga ( set aside the ironic part) himself and so on.
I think that this manga is worth of reading and I'll recomend it.

There's more of a reason to Yuki being reincarnated as a boy than you think, not just for the shounen-ai subplot. True, he's regarded as "cute" and a bit androgynous, but the real reason that the original Yuki was reincarnated as a guy is because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it was her last dying wish to do so. The manga even says that she was treated as a "princess" and no one could get close to her, causing an immense feeling of loneliness (which the present-day Yuki even feels). Being reincarnated as a boy took away some of that "delicate/princess" feeling to him (although the guardians are still fiercely protective of him). And the fact that she wanted to forget everything that happened also contributed to this.

Ok, so I saw the anime first and then started reading the manga. I LOVED it, maybe a bit slow in the romance category but that was just fine with me, it emphasized Luka and Yuki's relationship to be pure and innocent. Yuki was a girl in his previous life and Luka and Yuki were then in love, but in this life Yuki was born to be a boy but Luka still loves him, doesn't matter to him if its a man or a woman as long as it's Yuki (cheesy but touching none the less) kinda reminds me of the manga BRONZE minus the sex. wink The plot is fast paced with exciting characters, good action and great art! Those of you who are averse to shounen ai, please DON'T ignore this series. Unlike other shounen ai or yaoi, where it's always about pushy sex, this one is about emotions, adventure and LOOOOVE biggrin The characters are super cool and not to mention extremely hot (;]) you will grow to love them.

im a die hard yaoi fan girl and the only shoujo ive ever read was n0.6 but i love this manga.luka is so hot and i love shusei and tsukomu reminds me of zero from vampire night.this manga is good for anyone.but i want more shounen ai.yuki has already admitted he wants to see luke but he should get his memory back already so they can be together. i dont really like yuki that much but luka makes up for fav couple apart from the main one should be hotsuma and shusei and i want reiga and takashiro too.

basically any genre you're looking for, there's a manga better than this one. If you're looking for shounen-ai, then this is lacking in that area, same with any typical shoujo romance/action

however hotsuma and shuusei are an amazing couple and the only reason i read so far in the series, so its an okay read with a couple of good moments, but nothing too great

omg i'm turning old waiting for this serie to come out!! it's not that great to begin with and making me wait and wait it's turning on my nerves!
but it's my fault for been that kind of persons who must always finish what they start!...
I even saw the anime cause i thought "maybe this will tell me the ending so i can put some closer into this.." .. well.. IT DIDN'T!! it has a freaking OPEN ENDING!!.. and in all the freaking series all what yuki does is cry and scream "kanata-san!!" ¬¬' freaking annoying!!
it would've been perfect if they would've used all the good this in the plot in a different way!
it had soo much potential! so bad they didn't knew how to use it.. :S

I LOVED this series (Although it tooks 2YEARS for a new chapter -.-) I saw it and was like "psha, is weird, I no read this!" BUT I got the manga and started to read and was like "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME" I love it so much, the plot! Characters!( LUKA)! Everything about was amazing. I didn't even mind that it was shounen-ai, which I hardly ever read.
My advice to everyone. READ THIS. YOU WILL LOVE IT.
