Take it or leave it
The plot and art is true to Fujisaki Kou-sensei's work. You either like it or you don't. I, frankly, like it. True that the art isn't comparable to Viewfinder or those doe-eye yaois, but I like the sharp lines and angles on the characters. I like how big the semes are in comparison to the ukes, the thickness of the neck, the broadness of the chest and shoulders, the oompf of the semes'... ;D Well, you know. Like many of Fujisaki-sensei's other works, the plot is shallow, not delving into heavy things, so it makes for a quick smexiness fix for those who enjoys Fujisaki-sensei's works. I enjoy the possessiveness of the first story (though I've read better) and I enjoyed being titillated during that train scenes of the second story (though I feel it's rushed.) The yakuza story was kinda dull and not even the steamy scenes made it tolerable but all-in-all, I have no real complaints. Read it if you like Fujisaki Kou's works. Don't read it if you don't. FYI: If you're looking for something with a good story line like The Summit or tolerable story plots like Sex Pistols, this is not it.
The art is painfully bad
I'm not exaggerating. Well, it could be because I've just read a few stories of a fantastic mangaka, whose stories aren't very original, but the art is soo gooood => Maruya Kae. Read that because it's loads better than this **** thing. The mouths and noses in here all look misshapen somehow, and I've spotted some anatomical inconsistencies.
But well, back to these stories. okay, it is smut, so I'm really not expecting much feeling or anything. But the sex is totally not hot, not well drawn. None of the panels are well presented. I just don't even want to look at it. The stories don't work, I spent half my time skipping through the pages hoping to find something better further on. And what the hell was that last chapter about? That story was completely pointless. It went like this: "We've been together for fifteen years, have a sexual relationship, but I think I'm in love with you, so I'm leaving you... (20 pages of pure boredom later)...oh wait, you tell me you love me? Okay then, I'll come back." End. God that was so stupid.
I'm just disappointed. It could be personal, I'm not sure, but I certainly would not recommend it. Waste of time. There is much, much, much better stuff out there!

All the same thing
I dont ever really remember what this mangakas stories are about, and for some reason they all combine together and appear all the same to me and overall, i rate the mangaka a 6 so i rate this manga 6 also. All i remember from his/her mangas is the sex which is always intense with massive penises.
What the f*** are those ratings?!
I was mislead. It's nothing like the description and not nearly as good as the ratings. Not particularly bad either...it's even my type of story, but it's damn superficial, from the character construction to their relationship and how it progresses.
There are major problems here. 1st: This storyline's been done a billion times before. Of course we can't expect anything new, but this means the mangaka has to find an original way to deliver it to us. Fujisaki Kou-sensei didn't. It's full of clichés. 2nd: The order of chapters. We didnít get to see how they got together in the first place until the third chapter (which was the best, too). Because of that, I only started to care in that chapter and by then they were already together. Also, since there was no background to begin with, the first two chapters seemed meaningless. 3rd: The story's pace was really messed up (too fast) and the dialogues ("I will capture" you and everything) seemed absurdly precocious to be presented to the reader. This may be caused by the previous thing I mentioned, the order. After all, if we don't care about the characters, how are we supposed to understand how they feel?
Then there are the characters. I didn't shed a tear or felt any sympathy for them while reading it and that, too, is because of the problems I mentioned. Again, I didn't care, so it didn't connect to me. Kento's also so unrealistic it's even laughable. He's controversial. His excuse for running away isn't slightest bit believable and from not wanting to see Sho and protecting him from the media's reaction towards their relationship, he suddenly confesses and becomes selfishy in love, out of the blue. Sho, on the other hand, is the only good thing about this manga. I love his temperamental personality. His love for Kento is obsessive, sick and twisted, and Iím a digger for the "if you leave me, I'll kill you" situation.
But also, this titleís artwork doesn't compensate for its failures, since it doesn't suit my taste, and nor does the sex.
As if to compensate for the first one, the second story is brilliantly kinky. I loved it, really; it fulfilled all my perverted desires and left me begging for more just like the Yamanaka!
Yamanaka is an ex-seme: has a lot of pride, is sexy, can get the woman he wants and is a little full of himself. Though heís not the kind of uke to keep pretending he doesnít like it when he obviously does, he doesnít admit heís enjoying it right away, and instead gets surprised with Kawanishiís actions, but remains in the same position, without a sound of complaint.
Kawanishiís a perv, but not the kind of disgusting ones that are almost desperate for sex. No, he deliciously plans his every move to get Yamanaka crazy with desire!
How can it have such a different pace from the previous story? This one doesnít leave anything out and even has some degree of background, though itís not required. Yamanaka explains why heís no longer satisfied with women and he does it briefly, but even so, it doesnít seem rushed.
The characters, like in the first story, donít have emotional depth or anything, but with the exception that, in this one, thatís not the point of the story. Itís good the way it is. Thatís a classic PWP thatís actually enjoyable, as opposed to the ďonly sexĒ yaoi out there that donít even make you feel a thing.
I just wish it was the beginning of a love story and that I could see their relationship blossom from then on! I wanted to see a kiss between themÖBut itís perfect the way it is.
Then the art also gets amazing, all of a sudden. The characters are hot and it doesnít have any trace of the sloppy sketches it did before, nor the crude bodies. They are all sexy.
Oh, and this was my favorite story from the volume. ---
The third story got me from the first sentence already: ďno kissing, weíre not loversĒ. Thatís codename for angst, which is what I love in yaoi.
It followed as I expected and, though pretty predictable, I enjoyed it and never got tired of reading it. Itís classical miscommunication while their feelings are mutual!
Taka is the cutest uke! He pretends to be all strong, but he canít help himself and is head over heels in love with Ryuichirou! And Ryuichiroís sweet too, denying kisses and all distant to get himself together.
The pace is a little rushed again, but it didnít affect the story greatly. Itís still good, though I wish it had a little more background and conflict before it came to a conclusion.
I wished to see a little more passionate sex after they admitted their feelings, but the story was just my type. And the art is all pretty, once again: they are freaking hot, and Taka reminds me of a friend, hehe
RATING I will have to rate this separately, since my opinion differs so much between the first and second and third stories. I'd rate the first one 4,5 and the other two about 9. So I'd recommend it you skip the first one and go straight to the other two.
well since its fujisaki sensei the art sure is great. really hot hoot smex and things like that. as the story goes, i find sho a bit rough and i find kento really hard to comprehend but since it all goes well in the end whatever. i really dont know about the plot. but this will hook you guys. try it.
i don't know what vaoi was smoking when she wrote her review. i think crack! not to say that this isn't a good story, but ummm... vaoi made it sound like a fluffy little bunny with a lot of hot sex. OH THERE IS A LOT OF HOT SEX! but the the storyline tends to make you overlook the sex. "IMPOSSIBLE!" you may say, but the romance is a little extreme. it will leave you questioning love, and if you really want this kind. i leave it to you to decide. just had to give another point of view.
Great - sexy romance.
First and foremost, I have to say this - Fujisaki Kou draws the most delicious men. I thoroughly enjoyed all three stories, the smut was HOT!! But it wasn't just smut and yaoi. There was also some romance as well which made it the satisfactory manga. I would definitely recommend you to read this if you're looking for a fun yaoi, you won't regret it.
