Description
From Bliss:

Motoki was originally an ordinary guy with an ordinary life. Soon, however, Motoki starts noticing that things are changing in himself and his surroundings. His bad eyesight is cured, and suddenly he becomes prettier. As if in response to this mysterious change, two strange men appear in class, Shidou and Kubota. His classmates tell him that they have always been there, but he has no recollection of them. Then he finds out that both of them are after his life, and planning on "devouring his heart."

Interesting Plot, Poor Execution

I completely support authors in the BL genre to create slower paced, more detailed work that focuses on the plot instead of on smut scenes, but this work falls very short of what it is attempting. The action/fighting scenes are nice, but as one mentioned before, the protagonist is ridiculously useless and keeps doing stupid things and needing to be rescued.

Instead of focusing on the actual details about this "clan" and what anticipates to be a very interesting alternate history, most of the "slow plot development" is actually just romance scenes one after the other of hearts beating, blushing, woe-is-me tearful outbursts, hugs and comforting, and professions of endearing love. In other words, it takes after a typical shallow BL manga type and draws out all the really boring confession scenes and the actual plot (hunter & prey, alt. species) is completely used as a tool of convenience to get the main pairing together.

If you want a similar plot, but done better, check out Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru which is pretty much BL anyway, and the protagonist is actually likable and strong in his own way.

That being said, this particular author has put out interesting BL manga in the past. Short, comical works seem to be her strength.

Well, as I see that reviewer before me all praised this manga.
I don't really get it.
The plot was awesome, yet the main uke character... I just want to bash his head and say, "STOP PITIYING YOUR SELF AND DO SOMETHING!" what kind of man would that easily gave up? It angered me...
anyway, other than that, this manga is good.
Don't get me wrong. I love uke character such as Ayase from OgN, which was basically girl with boys appearance. But this uke character was too much. too weak. to dependent.

yamakami riyu is well known for telling solid stories, and this is probably my current favourite, after mitasareru kuchibiru. it's moving quite slowly, and i have so far no idea what will happen (haven't bought the tanks yet), but am eager to find out. good, quiet character development. her art (which isn't my fave) has gotten more fluid since the early volumes.
