This may sound very stupid but for over 2 years now I have hesitantly picked up this manga and then simultaneously decided not to, back and forth like that, so many times. That was all due to the comments here in mangaupdates, but now that I have finished reading it how I wish I had not been so indecisive. The whole manga is much better than I anticipated. Sure the characters all have their problems one by one, but ultimately I don't think it's as badly as people have complained. The stories do vary in quality though, and I do think that in the first story Shimizu Yuki-sensei could have executed the development/characters better and could persuade readers from being haters to sympathisers.

I particularly like the other 2 stories more, at least there're some more meat and action, and somehow I really did enjoy what I read. Furthermore, the 'psychology' and 'bdsm' tags as labeled in the genres and tags are really so minor that one would hardly notice them at all. I personally think those spoil-sports could ruin one's experience very terribly when reading something, especially for a manga like this where that's just horrendously misleading.

People may say what they want but compared to many similar mangas out there this one is still far superior. Out of all the 'recipes' I've 'tasted' from Shimizu Yuki-sensei I have yet to know of 'disappointment', that's for sure.

i have to appreciate the first story a bit because it's all about seduction without any romance at all, pretty much. kaiya is pretty mean, but he's also a sadist and its nothing worse then anything i've seen from other mean semes. poor kou is the perfect lovestruck tsundere. too bad playing nice is not anywhere in kaiya's book. i love his creepy face when kou confesses to him. it represents the story quite well.

second story was ok. i thought yuujin was more of a jerk than kaiya, to kou at least. third story was sweet but....ehhh....a litttttllee too much shota for my tastes. dont just pick up random kids, even if they're willing -_-

The mangaka is trying to hard to make a sadistic seme but this guy is nothing more than an jerk. Kou should grow a spine and leave this guy. No one deserves to be treated that way, especially an innocent boy like Kou.

I was looking for yaoi but in the first chapter here are boobs I have to wash my poor eyes now
Seriously did the author have to show that?and no offense but the girl was an ugly ***** and the other one was just a plain creepy slut.
This is the life of girls in yaoi always terrible

Normally I stay far away from anything with S&M tags, but compared to some I've accidentally come across this manga kept it relatively mild. Yes, Kaiya is a jerk; but why aren't more people complaining about Yuujin (Kou's uncle for crying out loud) practically giving him to Kaiya? That would have to be my biggest peeve with the manga. I would love to read more about all these pairings.

I actually liked this manga. The S&M was almost nonexistent and all the pairings worked well together. Plus, this is by the mangaka who did Love Mode which is one of my all time favorite yaoi!

No.
Bear with me on this one.
The first story was rather annoying and the characters were so stupid, like really kou?
you let Kaiya treat you like crap and just obey his every words just because you love him?
To be honest Kaiya was a total dick wad and everything about him is detestable.
Now the second story was alright, it had really hot sex scene's but was lacking in plot development.
Also all the stories in this manga are messed up..
so go ahead and read it if it's your type, but i just hate characters who are simple minded.

The first story was just gross to me D: made me go eww so much D: No matter how much I love someone if I see a scene like that I would be completely disillusioned, eww just ewww and more eww D: I just hate Kaiya :/ he's a bastard, I dislike him, I really do... He didn't have to be mean to get Kou, if he had done it the normal way they would have ended up together anyway, but he's just a sadist and an ass D: Stories like that just make me think of STD's D: Anyone who tries to give me a piercing in such a place will die D:

The second story was kinda meh :/

The third one was better. What a perverted uncle d: Among all the stories it was the best one.

Overall I guess it's ok, if you have time to kill read it bigrazz

Story not for me. I definitely dislike the first story. I hate characters like Kaiya. He's a complete jerk. I mean, what kind of guy does that to someone he likes? But the rest of the story was tolerable so I'll give it a 7.

Your Mileage May Vary, from TV Tropes. I love the art, the sex scenes, and the second story (Dying Happy). Good points.

However, I highly agree with everyone else that Kaiya is indeed a jerk, a complete and total one. I would have been very happy if Kou grew up and turned the dynamic seme/uke table on Kaiya. I think Kaiya should have gotten a dose of karma.

That is all, over and out.
