Asami turning straight men gay since 2001

This manga is really good. It's got a few yaoi clichés. But over all, the manga's very interesting and the plot (even when it feels random) works. If you do not like yaoi where the mafia and rape is involved, don't read this manga! You have been warned!

I like Asami (the seme), he is a mafia boss and you feel it every time he's on screen (very well written character). I'm not a fan of Akihito (the uke), I sort of want him to behave more (outside of the bedroom). And for the love of god, Akihito, stop getting involved (and kidnapped)!

The plot obviously has holes (as do most yaoi that involve/start with rape). Here's a summery of the first 5 encounter between Asami and Akihito:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
First encounter: Asami falls in "love"/is amused by Akihito Second encounter: Akihito is kidnapped and raped by Asami (said rape involves:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Not in order: hand-job, bondage, urethral penetration, dildo, aphrodisiac, bite gag, orgasm control (via string/rope), punishment, wrist and ankle restraints, dominance, anal item (film roll) insertion, and anal intercourse
... basically a sh*tload of bdsm fetishes in one scene. Third and forth encounter: no real interaction. Fifth encounter: Asami saves Akihito (from his kidnappers) - oh and Akihito "loves" Asami (my guess is the sex was just that hot). Love is not really what you have here, but it's close to what they have with each other.

Don't let encounter nr. 2 scare you away, it's the most hardcore (and random use of fetishes) sex scene you'll find in the whole manga. And (according to me) not the hottest scene in here wink

The art is wonderful. The sex is hot. It's plot faults are forgivable. The main characters are interesting, as are the side characters (Feilong <3 ). But again, if the mafia (and rape) aren't your cup of tea, you're not going to like this manga.

IN MY OPINION, this manga is really overrated. It's got alot of rape and stuff like that in it, which is not my thing. If you are into that, then you will probably love this manga but for me it was a bit too much. The art is nice, I guess, but I didn't really find the characters all that interesting or relatable. The plot isn't really anything special and gets kinda repetitive. Probably good if you aren't looking for anything heavy and just want a light read, though I guess not because of the rape and stuff. I guess it's understandable because of the smut tag so, again, if you like that kind of stuff then go for it I guess, you will probably love it. If you however, like me, don't like that stuff, then stay away because this manga has a lot of it. This is all just my opinion though smile.

Incredibly BAD

I will not even go into the rape, I know that yaoi is a harmless fantasy space. However, it's so cliched -- Takaba's objection to his rape is almost obligatory, the police detective's betrayal is even more so, and actually extraneous, and Takaba's minor aid to Asami ending with him being rescued is so predictable. It's so gratuitous, it's like the mangaka doesn't even try.

Not even good enough to be a guilty pleasure yaoi (of which I have many).

Rape according to thesaurus: abduction, abuse, maltreatment, molestation, violation, etc. Practically explains everything in this manga.

This manga is so hot I don't even know how to handle it. The more Asami subdues Akihito, the more he violates him, the more sex they carry out it gets better. I like how mysterious Asami is, until today at volume 7 we still do not know what business he does, and he still is somewhat the sexy mysterious guy from volume one. Akihito is not bad either and I like how he's falling deeper and deeper for Asami, how the bad guys have this dirty fantasy of raping him, it somehow increases his worth showing that he's just not some random street guy. He's hot and Asami as well. Just hope that the manga progresses to show how Asami actually likes Akihito and not just treating him like a toy, let's have them fall passionately in love and let's have Asami get more possessive. It's awesome.
And the art, phew, beautifully drawn. It has improved since volume one, Asami looks even better. I like the side stories too, the author giving us this fabulous fan service.
Read it if you like things like mafia, possessive lover, rape, lots of sex, falling for the hot mysterious stranger, and um yeah more rape. Seriously, Akihito even does blowjob for his job as a journalist. Wonder what happens next when Asami finds out tho...

I really do love Finder! It's such a good & nice manga. The Artwork is amazing & the story is just fcking awesome! I reread it all the time, because I can't get enough from this. I don't think I can live without this awesomeness.

I like the sex, i mean.. Look at it!!! It's not just cute, it's smexy, it's hardcore & asdsfhsa.

The age gap makes it a bit more "better", I don't know why, but I love how Asami treats his little Kitty & everything.

And goddammit, Asami is hot like hell. On the one side he's a bad boy, ganster, business man etc. BUT on the other side he's like the cutest fck ever! If you look at him closely, you can see how much he loves Takaba & how much he's worrying about him & like i said before, I like the way he treats Takaba. What I really adore is how manly Takaba is (but he's a little bit bitchy too)..

So what can I say? Just read it ok? READ IT!! it's so great and whatever, just read it. THANKS

This manga has caught me for complete, it's really very entertaining and leaves you waiting for the next chapter ..
Besides, I love how slowly progresses the relationship between Asami and Akihito, I'll die when they finally recognize that they love each other with a passion.

And hell yeah!!, Asami is the sexiest seme of them all, he tops them all! he is probably the main reason why I love Viewfinder, Akihito is also very nice, I like that he's rebellious and don't want to depend on Asami.

Perhaps the only thing I don't like that much about the history is that ALL men want to rape Akihito and he does nothing to defend himself, he just imagine Asami on moments like that.
And also, I don't like Feilong, vol. 2 was boring thanks to him.

Well, it starts off good, but somehow I think it lost the plot lately (from vol 7-8). And I'm starting to hate Akihito, what the hell is his problem giving everyone a blow job? Seriously... Asami should just dump him

Is he the hottest manga character ever? Well no, that is an understatement actually, HE DRIPS SEX!
Girls who don't read yaoi, SHOULD read this manga to catch a glimpse of this ...HOT^HOT guy, I mean it.
As for the series, it's good I guess ...loads of mindless sex involved but who cares? That's what Yaoi is all about *evil grin*
I read what some of my previous reviewers have written and I can't understand why you're making such a big deal of the whole rape thing? It's a MANGA for crying out loud, not some autobiography or some news you've heard. The thing about yaoi rape is that, the Uke does it to the Seme out of sheer possessiveness that's all. Some woman like men like that, although they may not wish for them in real life. Look at FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, why do you think its popular?

Anyway, some fiercely independent woman don't like the idea of being controlled or caged or whatever that goes on in their minds but like I said before, it just a MANGA! So chill and enjoy the sex! Which is what I'm here for xD

RECOMMENDED to anyone who want to take in a sex bomb! (ASAMI!!!!!!)
