Read it for the sex because there ain't much else.
Typical Kanzaki material here - a fouresome of guys varying in age from their teens to mid/late twenties, all good-looking and all with an unusually large predisposition toward mind-games and all things sexual.
The story is mostly told from Nozomi's point of view. He's a high school student who used to practice kissing and masturbation with his seven-years-older neighbor, Mitsuru. The story begins with Nozomi's perplexing situation - he wants to lose his virginity but he can't get hard with girls. Like a truly airheaded uke, he seeks an answer from Mitsuru, whom he hasn't seen in two years time. When he does finally meet Mitsuru, Nozomi also comes into contact with the one-year-younger Jin and the older and popular idol, Yuuma. It somehow manages to come as a shock to Nozomi, when in Mitsuru's room with all three other men, he's told that he must be homosexual. Duh...
Despite the severely underdeveloped characters and the fact that the story had little to no plot in the first place, the weirdest thing about Love x Eros is that it had the most anti-climatic, abrupt end to Nozomi's story. Though Kanzaki Takashi is by no means a complex mangaka, even this ending is a little undercooked compared to her usual standard. It seems as though she intended to continue the series but perhaps it was dropped by the publishers. Though I can't see much point to continuing the series, it would've been nice to see Nozomi's story arc complete.
All in all, Love x Eros isn't bad but it isn't good. It just...exists? Unless you're a fan of the mangaka and/or a fan of sex, there's little else going for this series. The art is pretty mundane, the story is pretty nonexistent, the characters are pretty bland...Actually, I don't even know if I like it or not...
Really the worst yaoi ever (and I've readed a loot of horrible ones.) What the heck! At the volume 4 I thought okay it seems this one will be the only one I'll like from this author It seems it starts to go normal but then I readed chinese raws of the volume 5...

NOZOMI ENDS UP WHIT MITSURU AND NOT WITH JIN this is... I don' even have enough words to insult Nozomi enough the only character that I liked in this series is Jin and he ends up unhappy. And the worst is that in all of the first chapters of the volume nozomi and Jin are all lovey dovey and then BAM! Nozomi goes and says ~ooo I've decided I'm going with Mitsuru after all~ even though Jin has taken care of him, even though he waited waited to not hurt him. Nozomi YOU ARE A BITCH.
This time I'm saying it for real I'll never ever ever read anything from this author again.

I think this is the worst yaoi I´ve ever read. Even if it does have a plot it´s really going nowhere. But the reason I´m giving it a 1/10 is because of the characters in this one. They make you want to punch someone. Seriously I got really angry after every chapter they´re just so brainless and dont know what they really want, playing around not knowing what real love should be like and so on. No common sense in this whatsoever. The art is decent but it really doesnt make anything better. Just skip this one it´s really not worth your time.
I don't mind love polygons but in this manga everyone is doing it with everyone else, even though they all have that someone special they really like. The sex is so gratuitous it's not even hot anymore just cheap. Quantity not quality in this case I'm afraid. The characters and the plot turns are totally unbelievable and random and always sex-driven. Gah! The only character I remotely liked was Jin because his behavior was the most plausible and he was cute. The art wasn't bad either but not good enough to redeem this series...
There is more!
Just visited sensei website and found out that this series is not finished yet. On sensei site you can see photos that reveals that this series has at least 5 VOLUMES! Good, because if it finished at vol 2 that would be too confused and unsatisfying for us. Hope next volumes will bring some plot and logic into that series
Should have guessed
Ugh, wish i hadn't wasted my time on that! I mean, I hate this sort of story, one unfaithful (bleep) of a bottom. A manipulative top who doesn't care for anyone feelings. And the character I kind of liked didn't get to be happy in the end (the only decent person there). Thats it, I'm keeping my hands of love triangles. Mh... well, I should have looked at the cover properly, that would have told me everything. Now I'm angry at myself. The second Manga I wish I hadn't read, small percentage, wich makes this Manga even more sad.

I second that
I second Karuna opinion. It's the stupidest yaoi with the worst ending ever. I almost threw my tablet at the floor when I saw the ending but then again, this doesn't worth it. It's just a stupid story.

i kind of like it !!!
I really liked this story, i really thought it will be bad when i starte it, because a usually hate love traiangle it's sad :and things with most of it is sex ( even thought there was'nt any sex right ? bu)t this one was really good !! i really loved jin's charactere and pure love for that stupid nozomi who had eyes only for mitsuru
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm really glad he ended to be with jin and not with that mitsuru !! it would have been stupit otherwise :D
I recommande it ! it was really good !
A bit hard to digest.. o.o
There's a lot about this story that I really don't understand.. Mitsuru likes Nozomi but he has sex with Yuuma..... Mitsuru really is cruel. I hope that after it finishes I'll understand, I guess. So, I'll just be waiting for more volumes then.
Love triangles are confusing. e.e
Not too bad
Lots of drama, practically no morals xD Starting with the characters... apart from Jin they're all a little twisted when it comes to their feelings. Jin is the pure one and therefore my favourite character The story itself is... its ok i guess? It starts pretty good but sort of loses momentum a little but it still has a satisfactory ending as such, though i do with the situation with Yuuma had a bit more of a certain outcome. I really cant help but feel sorry for Yuuma. This is a decent read but isnt amazing, but i think it deserves better rating averages than people have given it. In my opinion it warrants a good rounded 7.
