Description
From Blissful Sin:

Akiyoshi Tooru is the perfect student with glasses. Unfortunately, he’s always been told that he was 'cute' and 'pretty' which forced him to develop an inferiority complex as a young man. The very same Akiyoshi received a confession from a boy of rare beauty, Naruse Fuuta. Of course, Akiyoshi rejected the confession from another man. However, Naruse lost it, underwent a complete change of attitude, and attacked him! Now knowing the fearsome nature of Naruse, what fate awaits the fleeing Akiyoshi?!

I love it when semes has a cute physical appearances but renders something darker inside, I love the comedy in the manga, I feel like this manga was made more for comedy than an actually storyline so yep.

Amusing

Yep, that's about all it was. Amusing. The reason being is that I'm a huge sadist and I like people who are sadists. (a.k.a. Naruse) Sadists are funny. Everything about Naruse is creepy: his eyelashes, his lips, the way he talks...and his personality.
I mean, look at this: I bawled from laughter!
It's an awesome way to get someone to listen to you...Maybe I should try it....

Anyway, this is a manga for people who like creepy ukes - I mean, semes...No, what I really meant was...creepy semes that look like ukes!

Gotta be honest. It'll annoy you plenty of times. Every criticism thrown at this manga, or most of it anyway, it's true. But like everyone rating this, you will read it all and will have the intense urge to read it all. It's true that the paneling is messy, and the author likes for everyone to say something, so the panels are plenty of times littered with little boxes and dialogue. You can choose to just skim over it, because ultimately it's just that, background people talking a lot, but you will have the urge to read it all. That's the thing with this manga. I think that's the reason it's so famous, and why it has such mixed reviews.

It's not cliché at all, and it deals with a good does of dub-con, though I would never consider rape as a theme, given that Akiyoshi is always clearly in denial. He himself pretends to dislike Fuuta, but the moment Fuuta turns around Akiyoshi is pouty. There are panels showing him mooning or pouting over Fuuta, but he thinks it's not like that. Fuuta is rough, but it's never nothing I don't expect from MEN handling each other. Everytime they are not having sex they have pretty intense conversations, with Akiyoshi pretending to be all annoyed about them.

Is it a manga about love? Who knows, but I personally know it's the kind of manga that will make you despair, facepalm, piss yourself laughing and gasp in suspense. It may have a lot of flaws, but even those flaws are handled in ways you hadn't read in other manga. So I could say that even in the bad, it does remarkably. You might not like it that much at the end, but it will sure leave you an impression. And when you read other manga and find stuff you don't quite like, you will remember Kawaii and Itoshii Akuma and how better they did at the bad, if that makes any sense bigrazz

This is the manga that started my fanatic obsession for Madarame Hiro sensei's mangas. This series is the BEST for me. I have read it over 3 times and I still love reading it. The love between Akiyoshi and Naruse is different from any yaoi I have read. The ART is to DIE FOR and the Main CHARACTERS are so funny and the side ones even make me laugh. The progression of their love is unusual and I LOVE IT. I feel like this wont be every ones cup of tea. But you should drink the whole cup before you say you hate it. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS A SERIES THAT HAS MORE THAN ONE BOOK AND NARUSE MAKES A TRANSITION, SO IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS ONE KEEP READING!!! Because you might (90% sure) you'll like it in the end! HAPPY READING (>.<)

I'm between liking it and disliking. It was kind of funny how extreme the characters' personalities were. And their appearances, I can't even begin to describe odd uke and seme relationship. Read once. Came back a second time a couple of months later because it was difficult to forget the quirks in this manga.

the panelling suck. too many things happening in one go. the art is distracting. i feel like theres too much light i get blinded by it. i like unequal relationship, so though im miffed that love is thrown in the mix, i think thats the best. its funny anyhow, so if you prefer comedy over drama this is it.

I don't know why people get so stressed about dub-con in yaoi mangas....It's like the biggest cliche, and if you read enough of the genre, you'll see that there is at least a scene of many. I was able to get past it years ago, so my mind sort of skips through it, automatically now.
Besides with characters like Akiyoshi, who have so many complexes, and can't even admit to his feelings....i don't feel one bit sorry for him.

In any event, this manga is worth the read for the humor. I wouldn't call it romantic at all, because although there is a twisted relationship, the feelings are interpreted through actions rather than baring it all.

Overrated and underrated here Imo

It started with positive points because it surprised me. I'd never expect Naruse to be the seme! I though he was those kinds of seductive ukes, but that's all. Now that I think about it, though, I can't see Akiyoshi as the seme, hehe...he's just so uptight!

Anyways, there’s this whole rape controversy. I, for one, am guilty about the matter, because I'm a big fan of dub-con, so I like it just they way it is...It's kinda sexier when the uke's reluctant, rather then when he's like "do it more". So, for me, it's not a you-raped-me-so-I-love-you kinda manga. Akiyoshi didn't fall for Naruse right away. At first, he didn't give Naruse full consent, but yes, he could've fought it if he wanted, he just didn't. It’s not rape, it’s just dubious, because, as he said himself, he “felt it”. It's possible that someone would feel pleasure even denying it, especially because Naruse prepared him and made sure he was enjoying it.

Well, the characters themselves aren’t very complex, but they serve their purpose.
Naruse is just a deceiver on the highest level of it all! He really entertained me, down to his appearance to his personality! And even the fact that he gets things quickly, he's not slow at all. Oh, and his appearance? I hate when the seme's more feminine than the uke, but after chapter 04, Naruse turned out to be just PERFECT! The kind of dreamy seme I love.

What really makes me love Madarame-sensei is how well drawn the sex scenes are. It’s not like they’re just beautiful, but the expressions on the characters’ faces are so full of pleasure, it’s amazing! And… God.Damn.It. That was the sexiest masturbation scene EVER!
Even the details, such as Naruse kissing that host - I was sooo shocked! But it was good, you know? I like when the seme makes the uke feels conscious about his feelings.

Then, towards the ending, the problems started. The plot never changed nor developed, it just stared the same.
But I have more complaints:
- They were taken as a couple (Naruse even announced it) before Akiyoshi acknowledged his feelings - actually, that part was never even revealed, like there was no need for him to feel anything, or at least to tell his partner.
- The ending itself felt unfulfilling. After all they've gone through, I thought they would have to suffer a little before they could be together as a couple, but it didn't happen. They just got there, as if all the hate from before meant nothing. I was a little disappointed, frankly. And how could it freaking end with a joke, after all Akiyoshi’s thinking, such deep things about his love?! Isn't he gonna confess?! He says "what are you laughing about? This should be touching scene", and that’s exactly how I felt. That scene pissed the hell out of me...or I guess I just hate comedy.

In my opinion, whoever wants to read this has to be careful with other’s reviews. I think people exaggerate. The “1”s here are out of line – it didn’t suck, I’ve seen way worse. But the “10”s aren’t honest either, because there were issues in this manga that were completely abandoned by the author, which didn’t quite do it for me because I expect some degree of seriousness. So it was enjoyable okay to read, but not sightlessly remarkable. I can sum “Kawaii Akuma” up with: read it, you won't regret it, but don’t expect wanting to re-read it in the future - which is also why I don't understand how it's so popular in the yaoi fandom...

It's not a drama, but the story is good! I had read mangaka's "Scarlet", and then I had felt a need in reading some more). If you liked Scarlet, then you surely will like this manga.
Imho it's more realistic than any other yaoi manga, but at the same time it's not boring. I joyfully grinned all the time ^-^

i love the art (well, i love the "serious" art, not the SD). it's really distinctive, and flowing; and the colour art is to die for; i'd hang that on my wall.

but the storyline. oi. i liked the way it started; the sudden reversal -- that was very funny, and a nice twist. i can ignore the raping, since it's BL (though i am never pleased by it, and it doesn't turn my crank). but the story didn't go anywhere. it became just a vehicle to repeat the same funny bits over and over, and i stopped finding them funny all too soon. there was no character development and i didn't like the characters. why does naruse have such a thing for akiyoshi -- he's a stuck-up prick to naruse to start out with, he's not very insightful, conceited to boot, and the justification of an initial attraction (he thinks he's not manly) is forgotten quickly. naturally akiyoshi ends up falling for naruse too -- why exactly? because he gets his grandma's charm back? really? that makes up for all the abuse? so ok, i can't take the story seriously or i'll just rip it to shreds.

but if i look at it as pure crack, then it falls way short by being so repetitive, and by making me think that the serious parts should be taken at face value (the non-SD art really pushes it in that direction). now, i am not particularly good with crack anyway, but this example isn't it for me. crack i like is frex yamato nase's chintsubu; that is crack without the seriously disturbing scenes. i am now wondering whether i misread scarlet a an indictment of obsessive relationships, and whether the people panning it were not right; maybe madarame doesn't have the sensitivity to actually write about obsessive relationships in a meaningful way. because this is clearly another obsessive relationship, and it's just used to deliver crack.

i'm rating it above average only because i think madarame at least tries to go somewhere differently, and because i adore the art.
