The angst feels man...

I love the angst and realism portrayed in this story. I HATED the way they made Chikara talked. It made he seem retarded or something when it's only his voice that has an accent. Other than that I liked Shinichi's character. Regardless of his his flaws and cruel personality, I can't deny that I can relate to him. Everyone has the feeling of wanting to boost their ego even if there's no passion in doing so before. Yet I do admire Chikara's personality too... Although I find him to be kind of creepy. I don't blame Shinichi for some of the stuff he says to Chikara cause some of it was over the top, but he was still leading Chikara's on and so I can see why Chikara was mad.although it's depressing but I love a good angst so I recommend it to you. 7.5/10

I loved this so much. It made me cry. Chikara is a hero for becoming an unknown poet. And he teaches his conceited lover to become a martyr too. The end of youth means the end of self-conceitedness. Finally you can start living for someone else. So beautiful and true.

This isn't your typical yaoi at all. For one, both Shinichi and Chikara aren't completely like-able characters. Shinichi's selfishness really annoyed me and Chikara - especially young Chikara - got annoying sometimes, too. But, and this is a huge BUT, these are what make the characters realistic. Like George R. R. Martin said, realistic characters always bring ambivalence in readers. Chikara's bluntness reminded me of my younger sister, and I completely related to how Shinichi felt. I understood the self-hatred Shinichi had, and Chikara's earnestness endeared me to him.

However, the yaoi was a bit slow-paced, and I felt like the ending was a bit abrupt. That being said, this is a great coming of age story, and I loved it.

Unlike in Inio Asano's works. His works are mostly realistic and depressing too, and this manga pale in comparison. While I read this manga, I just sit there, unmoved, distant. Maybe this manga just didn't have what it takes to be connected with me.

Chikara is annoying and unreasonable. Shinichi is pathetic. Actually those aren't bad points, considering this is a realistic-theme manga. But I don't see what they see in each other. If only the author showed us what it is, and not just told us.

it was really awesome at the beginning..so real and all but then towards the end, it got rushed. And the sudden change in Chikara hatred to shinichi is weird. So i'm really dissapointed in that, when the story could have been much better

Realistic and serious, this captivating story will hold you to the end. Beautiful art, as always. I loved Chikara. I love semes who are obsessed about their ukes. I also liked how unfeminine this was. I get so sick of the same flowery stuff with ukes that look like prepubescent girls.

Strange, but Oddly Good

This is not a happy or a goofy manga. I don't mind at all, because sometimes I get so tired of the fluff. It's a look at how a guy's life went exactly the way he didn't want it to, and it ends when he starts trying to get back to living. Chikara simultaneously interested me and freaked me the heck out. I didn't love any of the characters, but that was because they weren't really lovable. They're interesting, dark, and kept me kind of enthralled in the story, though.

I'd give it a try if you want something more serious than the usually fluff. Not that there's anything wrong with fluff. smile

I thought 'Noway theyll have a happy ending'
But..they did, even it's just a smile and a grab, It's satisfy me so much after all tragedy and sadness and depreesing stuffs~
It's a simplest way a happy ending can show


Well "Sometime, you have to give up". I'll remember this line for a really long time smile

A real, sad, everyday story...   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

This was a strange yaoi... different from the others. It was good, because it wasn't a stupid story nor a funny, romantic manga. It was something about real life and its hardness. It was about broken dreams, dreams of love and passion, dreams that could never become truth. So, in short, even if angsty, this is a good manga. But the ending disappointed me. I thought: "now something will happen". Because, you know, even if sometimes dreams are smashed into a million pieces, you can always get something out of it. There won't be always the rain. And I was hoping for a happier ending. I didn't wish for something unrealistic like "and they leaved happily ever after". But I didn't want a mediocre ending. Not a depressing one. But it was. In my opinion, it was not even a real ending. It was like the manga was cut. So... not completely worth reading.
