This art style isnt bad, but i dun like that females have the same face as males.
Well it was kinda interesting, kinda slow and kinda baka. I mean Aragaki was a playboy but dense, so dense as if he never even heard the world LOVE.....huuuf.....and after realising he became so different!!!! Like he awakened xDD so he became so sweet and cute!!~

It's about what you'd expect from this author. Nothing original or very interesting in this story, but the art was okay and it wasn't painful to read.

Everyone is overly dramatic, but not nearly the worst I've seen.

Not too bad, though I probably won't read it again.

I went into this expecting another one of those normal boy loves idol or vice versa stories but it actually surprised me with how sweet it was!
The story is absolutely captivating, the characters are interesting... I loved both the main characters and especially liked how Jin was just so clueless about everything... that he didn't just fool around with women cause he was a jerk or anything, he just didn't know any better.
I found that to be very refreshing.

I'd recommend this to everyone, it's really worth the read!

I love everything from Minase Masara. When I see her name, I know what I get, simple as that. All her stories also have a similar plot, which I also like.

This story doesn't differ from her other works, so ofc I love it. smile

I've always loved Minase Masara's works. I almost read finished all her works, except the ones that are currently being scanlated. Now this story kinda reminds me of...Lover's position. Both of the uke resembles each other a lot. But the seme in this story is OVERLY selfish and I'm pretty disgusted with his dumb "flirting" acts with other women. Like, come on! Keep it in your pants yo! He sleeps with the uke, yet he sleeps with other girls. I feel sorry for Kaoru! He deserves a better guy. Really! Why love a badass guy like Aragaki?! But then, there isn't any other guys that Minase sensei drew in this story. It kinda like only focuses on the both of them.
But really, Aragaki is so selfish like a spoiled brat. He doesn't love Kaoru, yet he wants him to stay close to him. He gets pissed off because Kaoru disappears?! Kaoru should just give him a slap when he said that he won't feel lonely if Kaoru is not there. The hell? But anyway, I still like how Minase sensei drew the work. :>

It lacks of something but i like it!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love these kind of stories, so cliché but sexy! It's pretty different from her other mangas but still it's worth the read!!! Honestly, i prefer the simple ones than the complicated ones 'cause i read to scape from my dull reality and having fun. And luckily they finished it scanlating!!!!!!! Yay! i thought i'd never know the ending, Thanxs Dangerous Pleasure <3

The story's rather cliched and the characters fall flat. Too much unnecessary angst, immature unlikable people and dramatic illogical decisions being made. However, as the artwork's pretty and it's easy to follow the plot - or what little there is of it - it's good for a 15 minute read with happy ending attached.

Ah, they need more facial expressions! If anyone is to show resist then at least furrow their eyebrows D:

That being said, besides the fact that everyone lacks expressions everything was to my liking. I like that despite all these predictable sayings, the uke has this one wrapped around his finger from the beginning. And that they both thought they could read minds. It was super adorable to me and a reason why I'll rate it ten, because I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's refreshing to not read a surprising manga once in a while.

Plus, the ending was adorable! How do you hate that?

it's really simple.. i wish there were more like this! THIS is a yaoi worth reading!, really an excelent peace of work, in art, story, a breath of fresh air to the normal "uke clingy king of yaoi"
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i like that he runs away instead of turning into a clingy uke, and just begging 4 affection, i really like this history cause it really reflects "if u love something let it go..." kind of thing, even tough i didn't like it before ¬¬' , this manga made me loooove this proberb!!, cause "...and if it goes back to you, it was yours from the beginning"
n yep he was his from the beginning.. awww loved it!

"It lets itself be read" as the French saying goes. The art is pretty, as usual, the first chapters showed some promise, but then the story revealed itself to be the same boring, cliché crap you read everywhere, with not an ounce of originality to detract from it.
If you've read Minase Masara's other works, then you know what to expect.
