Worth the time
I love this story! Actually they are a bunch of different stories which only thing in common is the fact that they are all conducted by Kain, a bar tender whose job is to make fantasies come true, but in doing so he teaches important lessons to his costumers and helps them in several ways.
He is a very interesting creature, not your usual yaoi character, so I enjoyed it a lot. Also, the illustrations are GREAT.
The only sad thing here is that they never really explain Kain´s story or background.
Questions I want answered
Sooo in the seventh story,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
do those two stay priests even while engaging in a relationship? ? ? ?
lol the way mangakas twist priests (ehh, even more so than they are in real life... *cough*pedophile scandals*cough*) is too crazy... Maybe it's because of the exotic-ness of Christianity to Japan? idk, but it's really interesting

omg Kain! X3
Kain is absolutely gorgeous, and possibly my favourite BL character EVER !
Overall the stories aren't bad but not great either, and really, I think that the little something that makes this manga magic is definitely the character Kain. He is mysterious, charismatic, manipulative, incredibly erotic, and even when he plays the uke he keeps giving off a dominating aura. In fact, that last point is probably what I like most. Whatever the situation and the characters, he is always the one in control in the end. Amazing character! ^_^ Plus, KODAKA Kazuma's art is near perfection imo, which is obviously for the best...
To conclude, worth a read, and Kain = WIN. <3

I can't put my finger on what he is exactly, but whatever it is, it's some good $hit. He's mysterious but not ordinary (with his abilities and job, but then he also likes cute key chains), he's sexy and dark but also friendly and such a believable character (he's written so that he almost seems real enough to pop off the page, for me). He's very mysterious, and I feel like I want to know so, SO much more about him. He doesn't try to be mysterious, but he got me hook, line and sinker.
There needs to be a sequel about just him. He's AWESOME. Kind of enthralling, actually.
My favorite parts were his off duty scenes. Those were so great!
I definitely think this manga should have more volumes or possibly a spin-off about Kain and his past, and as to what exactly he is... They give you hints but not too much detail on him. Other than that though the stories and characters were amazing! I mean some "shota" and a threesome? However the art is very explicit which might not be to some peoples liking, but personally I love it X3 If you like some explicit yaoi this is your manga!
This series amused me so much. The only character that makes a re appearance is Kain (i presume that is his name). But he has such character and his 'after work is done' actions make me laugh xD I was also surprised by the smut in this o-o i expected smut but not of the quality we saw - intense is the only word that comes to mind haha. Excellent art as always from this mangaka and an amusing collection of short stories with the same theme. I liked it x3
Kain is so COOL!
This manga is among the best that I've read. It's one of my favorite types, lots of sex and love and a bit of comedy. I like that it is light unlike other psychological manga and theres no drama or angst. This one really cheer me up after being bored and ending up reading a tragedy(which I hate). I also love how every story is connected, love how the characters from the previous story reappears. I didn't realize this was supernatural until the last chapter. All in all, Kain is so COOL! He's definitly my favorite character in this. He seems normal yet is very mysterious and handsome. I like him despite how it is a bit creepy how he could instantly turn into someone and know so much about them(I've decided to not to much about it but he's kind of like a devil or demon). At first I thought he was an uke and was a little sad that he didn't get a lover but was pleasantly surprised when he could also be the seme. There's shota(supposedly, but he's 19 almost 20) and a threesome! That's my kind of manga! The art is also beautiful, I find that it's far better than this author's other works. I would really like to see more of Kain and find out more about him. Like why did he stop being a priest(did he commit a grave sin or something and is trying to atone for it?) and why he became a sex therapist(and why he has sex with his clients), how Bar Kain came into being, what Kain and his friend's (real) names are, and most importantly what's the deal with his power. It's great that even though they're one shots there's still sex(most that I've seen end before they do it).
Good, but lacks plot
I like it, but I think it should be continued. I usually don't like too much sex, but as it was used for the therapy itself, it was a perfect way to make it fit in and turn it into a hardcore yaoi (although I didn't quite like the sex scenes because they were TOO explicit...) Another turn off for me when I first heard about it was the threesome ('cause I'm the type who likes sex with love, so these stuff don't go for me), but it had an important meaning to it.
As a good point, I liked the way all the stories had a strong psychological side to it even if they were short ones.
As for the continuation, I think we NEED to know more about Kain! He's sexy, sarcastic, lovely, and also seems to be a nice person. I'd like to see more of his past, why he turned into someone not loved by God (the cross he uses and stuff) and stuff. He could be a regular guy and I even thought of him turning into the person his client loved as only an image for that person, but after the last chapter, we get to know he does have some supernatural power. I'd also like to see him falling in love and having problems with it even though he's the therapist. I think he should be uke, what about you guys?
As for the scenes with the owner of the cafe, it was really cute and funny. And if there was more, they should be together <3 Or am I the only crazy with big imagination? xD
I loved it
It gave me, too, a litle feeling of "pet shop of the horrors of yaoi universe" and I loved this. All stories are interesting, I read it in a flash and ended with the sensation of wanting more. Great reading, extreme recommended.
So good, there should be more volumes.
I'd have to say that this is my favorite of Kodaka's works. The artwork in this story was well detailed and well-done. The psychological view of relationships was very interesting. I feel that when a person really desires a person they can't have they become depressed, that why when Kain comforted them they saw the person they desired. The little comedic scenes with Kain and the Restaurant owner were really funny and cute. This manga had good story with a good insight on human sexual behavior. I have to admit the smut was rather entertaining,however it not for those who squeamish to genitalia. In all its great read.
