mh. when I first started reading it, I thought "wow, this is so much like OZ (the tv show)" in the end of vol 1 the mangaka stated she was inspired by OZ. so, if you liked the series (like me), you'll definitely enjoy UGH. the artwork is very good (and hot!), the story leaves you wanting more.

I was very surprise at how much I like this series. I was never into realistic or violent yaoi but I can't help but be fascinated by this story. Perhaps it is due to the violent and realistic aspect of it that every loving gestures stands out so much more. I would definitely buy the complete series once it is licensed and release in the U.S (which I believe it will).

.... that this manga was shallow. It was much more gritty and realistic than most other yaoi. It wasn't "senseless sex". That kind of thing actually does go on in prisons. Personally I thought it more emotional and touching than the kind of fluff that's coming out right now.

I'm glad this is not 'your average yaoi' story (tho bondage and violent sex is actually not that uncommon in yaoi manga and I don't like any of those). If all were like this I'd quit reading. If you like violence, senseless sex just for the sake of sex in your average prison among men, then this one will enjoy you. The topic didn't entertain me at all, partly I was even disgusted (well that's normal, who'd enjoy that?). I prefer stories with more emotion and love. Still I made it through the first volume and no emotions came through the story to me. I didn't feel the struggle of the main char and sword... can't describe it... there was no development... not really an insight. Just shallow. Even the prison life wasn't transmitted, it was just a struggle from one sex to another. Maybe you must be a still hormone controlled teenager to oversee what's shown there, just to drool over the sex scenes.
3 points for half realism and above average explicit art.

@Lally
You don't need to agree or disagree with other comments, just add your own opinion.
And sure it was senseless. Senseless doesn't mean that it doesn't exist, it means it is senseless XD (as in no depth and no reason) And no what's described there is not the normal prison life as UGH isn't even a normal prison and doesn't want to be one, that's already stated in chapter 1. And if you weren't a prisoner yourself or working in that field then sorry but then you have no clue.

I can't explain how much i love this manga, Its one of the best i've read so far. Its realistic. This manga shows you that you can find love almost anywhere. Its a great manga. I enjoyed it alot. Its a shock that it acually had a happy ending, sadahiro-sensei did a good job. I reccomend this to anyone and everyone. Fantastic.

Plus it included sexy bishies.

I'm typically more into the fluffy BL sort of stuff, and held off on reading this because I didn't think I'd like reading about the prison scene, but this manga is so worth it. Even if this isn't usually your thing, give it a try. The art is amazing, the plot is great and their love feels real, even with (because of?) the situation they're in. Read it, read it, read it.

An excellent story! Well written. Even if you are not into yaoi, skim by those pics and read on. Yaoi fans will love this one for the story and in depth relationships illustrated. It is a really great story. I really enjoyed reading it. Looking forward to a side story etc.

Wow it´s my first time to read such a surprisingly good story (really really awsome plot) about prisoners and their rough lifestyle. I was blown away, it was so interesting till that point I that forgot the time hahah. My first impression of UGH wasn´t good because I used to read soft romantic BL stories...but I´m so happy I tried this manga and because of this reading-experience I have now widen my boundaries about multiplicity of the world of yaoi.

Ps! Oh yeah I´m so glad this one got a nice happy ending, it makes you enjoy the story in wholesome (^3^)//

This is such a great series that really sucks you in it! The characters are very interesting. The plot is great with the very new idea of an american prison. You can never really predict what's going to happen next. It's definitely NOT your average yaoi series. It doesn't matter at all who's the uke and who's the seme. They're all pretty manly and have guts and they all have their good and bad points, which is exactly what makes it even more realistic. So, it deserves to be thought of as a rare item! I hope everybody enjoyed it as much as I did.

seriously, this is one of the best yaoi mangas I've read. Besides the fact that Sword is uber-sexy, hot and delicious piece of manbigrazz *drool*. Since I'm mostly writing these comments for myself for times to come, I won't talk much to get others into the story as well. But if you have time and sense to read about the inmate life, then do it for Christ's sake, because this is as good as it can get;)
