Good smut, crappy story. Were you expecting anything else?

So here's your typical rape + rape = love yaoi manga, my personal pet peeve. But anyway, if you just skip over the usual doki-doki monologues by the uke, you can mostly ignore that aspect of it, which is good because there's some pretty decent smut here. The art isn't exceptional for the genre, but it's a hell of a lot better than most yaoi titles. The guys are actually attractive for once. Also, this one has something of a plot, which amps up the drama a bit. Of course, I don't know how it all resolves, considering I stopped after the first volume. Without even reading it, I can already imagine what the second one constitutes. It's probably something like the uke being reunited with his beloved rapist, then they have more abusive sex, then they fall in wubz for realsies this time. I think the first volume has a pretty good ending without all that Stockholm drama, so if you're like me and hate that contrived crap, you'd better stop there.

There's nothing else really to say about this title. It's basically your average yaoi with better-than-normal art and some good sex scenes. I'll give it a 6 since it entertained me for awhile.

this manga is one of ma fave by kanbe akira. the style of the manga is a bit unique because most of the story focused on shou and happens in shou's head its like a narration with a little bit of conversation. the sex scene is very yummy, not to mention the story line is pretty good as well. this is highly recommended for readers.

HOWEVER there is ONE thing BOTHERS ME:

if you read the prequel, love or pride, shou was introduced as HAIBARA SHOU" and, if you take a look to the ending of blind love manga you will see that SHOU was called MASASHI.... soo... HOW COMEconfused i don't get this part hopefully anyone here can help me with this....

Angst, angst, and more angst. I started thinking, "when will this end?" until it got to the point where the couple's relationship got deeper and the seme's background story started being addressed; then it was more interesting. It also had nice sex scenes. The ending didn't seem rushed at all to me. I had some confusion here and there, most likely due to awkwardness in translation. I generally liked the characters and the story, and I've liked various other stories by this mangka as well.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Making your rapist having a potentially fatal injury so that the victim realize his love for him, or in this case act on it, is cliche, lazy and frankly that's completely ruined this manga for me.

This is one of the biggest challenges in a gay relatonship. Pride as a man versus love, shou already gave up his pride but kunie did not follow and acted really stupid. If he loved shou he should have said so from the start and he would have ad shou from the start.

Somewhat uninspired with a lazy ending

I had really high hopes for this manga and the artwork is just as gorgeous as in Kanbe's other works but the writing let me down. I'm all for bastard seme/good guy uke pairing but this story just seemed uninspired- the writer took a bunch of cliches and added them without really linking them in a way that makes sense or is compelling. The ending is especially annoying- instead of explaining the confusing actions of Kunie, there is a really lazy plot twist that distracts everyone and so we never get to understand what happened and why. Also, there are TOO MANY SEX SCENES. Seriously. I ended up skimming them in an attempt to get back to the plot.

I started reading "Blind Love" because someone told me it was better than Totally Captivated. Well, it's not. It's not even similar, so I can't see why people compare them, but it's definitely not better.

Anyways, that doesn't mean it is not good. It's just my tupe of story, so I'm kinda biased by that, but I love how their pasts are actually so simple, but deep.

I especially like that the conflict is not whether they love each other or not, but that they can't communicate it to the other. Shou explicitly loves Kunie, but Kunie himself doesn't know that, and think that Shou prefers Taiki. At the same time, Kunie clearly loves Shou too, but is afraid of telling him that and getting Taiki chosen over him.
As for the characters, Shou didn't get my attention much, although he is a little resistant and does have some personality. But Kunie's? He's a hell of a seme! I totally love his cruel, pushy, abusive, dominant, jealous, mean, sadistic, sarcastic, player, etc. personality. He's perfect. And sexy, on top of that!

What I like especially about this title is the main characters' relationship. It takes so long to be developed, and yet it is still at the same point after two years being together. Then, after one year, Shou still loves Kunie. After three, they go back to how it was before, but even more intense than at the time. I usually don't like when it drags on like that, but I think it was necessary in that case and, even more than that, express the characters' insecurities over the years and how they have to overcome it to be together. It takes Shou some time to accept what he's doing with Kunie and that he loves him. Then, when he finally does, the stagnate, and he feels bad about it. And when it seems to take a direction, Kunie leaves. When he gets back, it was his time to realize things. We didn't get to see much of how he changed yet, but I'm sure he's taken his time.

But nothing is perfect. There are some issues that bothered me about this manga.
Fist was that I didn't understand some things that are supposed to be simple until I re-read some parts. Like, the timeline is weird. First it's in the future. Then it goes back to the past. Then it goes to the future again, but not the one from before. Then it goes to a little bit after the part where it startes...It's all too confusing.
Also, some of the conflicts regarding Taiki's decisions and Shou's actions on that seem to be completely disconnected with the main plot, that is Shou's relationship with Kunie. It seems to be just thrown there with no purpose to make the story longer or something. Shou's relationship with Taiki itself seems a little forced. Not that they aren't close and have that loyalty thing, but I don't see how it will interfere with Shou's relationship with Kunie. He's supposed to be in a boss/employee kind of relationship with Taiki, and a love one with Kunie.But the way the all bitch about it, it almost seems as if he loved Taiki too but was undecided.

As for the plot, nothing new, of course, and they could have been just a little more inventive.

Oh, and good art too!

I liked the prequels and the 1st volume is very well written with angst, but this series probably didn't need a 2nd volume, as the story is dragged on and on, and as it goes deeper in the angst, I can foresee that the end will be rushed and too far-fetched. Too bad.

Currently I've read volume one of this series. I'm enjoying it so far. It's very painful to follow the bitter love between the main couple. It seems that all odds are aganist them. They both love each other but it's seems that they can't express their love. The art is lovely. So far it a great read, I'm really looking forward to how it will shape up and end.

Edit: After reading this I've offcially became a fan of Akira sensei. I ending was lovely. Truly a good read.
