Good attempt at romance in prisons. I love the drama, plot twists and the ending.... The romance is believable... ****BUT****.
HOLY COW.... The rape scenes (and a lot of them) O.o... So graphic and vivid... Man I almost didn't continue...

The setting and emotions are very real. You have to read it for yourself to find out what I mean by that :'D Would have given a 10/10 if the pacing had been slightly better. There was something slightly off-kilter there -- sometimes things went fast and slow.

Hard, Raw, and Oh So Sexy!

For Yaoi fans of bondage, rape, and rough/graphic sex; this is made for you! I've never really been into black guys really, just not my thing I guess. However, Sword was so incredibly HOT!! The whole Tarzan turned gorgeous badass gangster was amazing eyecandy. The drawing was great! One thing tough, some of the sex faces (for those who have read, the "looking though eyelashes orgasm" face) kind of creeped me out. I actually liked the plot a lot, as in think Shawshank Redemption's erotic Yaoi cousin. Not too unrealistic, if Sen had been that cute, and in jail, he would be raped. A lot. Also, in prison, I guess straight guys would get gay after being without sex for a while. It's totally plausible. However, EVERY guy in this manga was gay, which was not so plausible. Overall, really good and totally awesome for the pornographic Yaoi lover.

how do i classify this manga?... i woul'd say that the sentence would be "Pretty raw" or xplicit, they take it as it is, they don't try to make the "pretty story, or the happy perfect ending" allways..
didn't like the ending though..(that's why it's an 8 not a 10..) but it was a really great reading

The Best There Is

Okay, I'm just gonna be a chain link towards the previous people who fell head over heels for this manga but I'll still say it, this is the best manga probably in the whole Yaoi history to date! Why? Because it is burning with everything that is Yaoi. There are lots of fights, violence, jealousy, rape, there is betrayal (but that only made them -,-"), then there is that undeniably irresistible bond between the characters that just pulls you in to the very end. It may not be right for me to selfishly proclaim the greatness of this manga but those who enjoyed it would understand and those who don't can keep on searching. I will continue searching as well but no matter what, even if I ever do read another excellent Yaoi masterpiece, I think I'll still be drooling over Sen and Sword at the beach; free of UGH... (with Sword's cool hair!) All in all:

Artwork: 9.5/10 (Most of it was very pleasing especially the ending to volume 1...@////@...)
Plot: 10/10 (Just love how Sen gradually becomes just as nuts as Sword)
Overall: 10/10

one of the BEST, hard core yaoi , i have ever read. read it all in one day good not put it down. Want more. Heard Lucky dog might be similar. BUT i don't think it will rock as much as this did.

Best Yaoi I've Read to Date

I absolutely LOVED this.

A friend of mine rec'd it and I read it tonight. Just brilliant. The seme and the uke were both gorgeous (and for those who don't get the hair, they're called dreadlocks) and I adored the fact that no one was femme. They were in love, they were sexual, but they were still MEN. That's SO refreshing for a change! They didn't have crying fits and get all 'emotional' like you see in shoujo and most yaoi manga -they each maintained their manhood throughout and it was a major appeal for me.

There is a good deal of violence and graphic sex, but it's such an important part of the story's atmosphere that it would be boring if it wasn't there. The mangaka was inspired by the old HBO show, OZ, and if you're familiar with that and liked it, you'll really enjoy this. I sorta guessed the ending before it was revealed in the last few pages, and wow, I just can't express how much I enjoyed it. Great read from start to finish!

I can't believe it!! I'm, a fan of handsome-cool character and haters of cheating story LOVES THIS MANGA SO MUCH!! Sword is faaar faar away from handsome and cool. he is a f*ckin bastard with a weird hair. but this is what makes this story is so HOT! I swear this is the dirtiest yaoi manga that I ever read. sex everywhere, violence, rape, and some killing scene... it makes me.. wow.
Maybe because of the seme's (super) possessiveness, I do really like it. I used to think that Sword is a sick bastard who kill everyone who touch sen, but when I looked again.. I think Sen is.. well.. as crazy as Sword. ahahaha...

Btw, since the warden is MUCH MUCH Handsome and hotter than sword, I wouldn't mind reading Sen having sex with him.I just hope there are MORE! because.. maybe I like that couple better. LoL. yeah.. handsome, hot, cunning, and.. villain. LoLoL

Oh.. and , I think sword in short hair is cool!!! xD

A must read! Definately the HOTTEST manga I've read in quite a while. I love that the couple isn't like the typical sappy yaoi couple. They're tough and manly, without being bara. Though there were parts where the couple frustrated me literally to almost the point of tears.

Also,I wish there was more with Norman and Walter...
