All three stories...

...(the fourth hasn't been scanlated as of this time) have intriguing, unusual concepts, but the execution leaves something to be desired in each case.

The first story would have worked so much better if Koichi hadn't known who Takashi was until the very end, the second was actually pretty good but could have done with more elaboration on what happened after Takashi discovered Soichi's secret, and the third was slightly too fast-paced to have as much impact as it could have had had the author set a more relaxed pace to match the 'day-to-day interaction' part of the plot.

Another odd choice on the mangaka's part: every chapter features the same characters (in terms of looks, names, and personalities), but in completely different situations and circumstances. Being an ardent fan of AU scenarios, I personally found it amusing, but most readers will probably just be confused and/or annoyed.

Still, Jikan Akima Jinbutsu gets a pretty good rating by my standards, because I've yet to come across these particular themes in any other manga, and uniqueness is pretty much all I expect from oneshots (as opposed to series, where I'm a much harsher judge of plausibility, characterisation and pacing).

A note to anyone who's wondering: except for the first story (which in itself isn't typical BL fare), none of the others are yaoi/shounen-ai.

The first chapter caught me offguard. Throughout the whole thing, I was trying to think of what could be his revenge plan. I thought he was just going crazy and needed someone inside of his house.

The second chapter. I really don't understand it. Read it twice, and neither time I could understand it. Could someone explain?

(I'll update when the last is scanned) Oh man The first chapter...I just loved this. it was so twisted and great and the ending was not what I suspected but was so perfect! biggrin

Chapter three~ Yet another ending that I really loved and the last lines just worked so perfectly for what happened in the story.

Even tho I love a sweet story or any kind of love story that have a happy ending, this tragic and horror ending still impresses me

And tho I can pretty much predict from the start what Takechi planned for his revenge, the ending still surprises me.
I agree that such revenge plan would never exist in real life, but whatever! it's manga anyway lol
I like it a lot bcoz the revenge plan use many methods of psychology, a very smart plot from the mangaka : ]

But then again, I hope for more of a happy ending. It's so sad for both of them and I wish that in the end, Takeshi does like Koichi even a lil bitT.T

I'd not recommend you if u r for a sweet story and can't accept drama and horror plot. I do agree with "lialah" that the reader will be either like it or hate it all.

And the same goes for me, I ended up liking it! : ]

kinda twisted, but I liked it. Didnt expect the ending of the first chapter, and I was kind of sad for both characters. I found myself not being able to really hate either character by this point, despite how warped both of them seemed to be (which I guess was the mangakas intention).

If you like yaoi which is unexpected and twisted, definately read it. Although this strikes me as something the reader either likes or hates, and I ended up liking it.

Even if yaoi is escapism, this kind of plot makes no sense. I can barely see the murderer and the uke as the same person, not to mention the seme with his unbelievable plan.
