I want more

I wanted more from stories 1, and 5, but mainly from story 1.
I enjoyed the stories. They are dark, and most of them messed up. Fits my taste well.
I would have to agree with the other comments the art for the sex scenes is lacking for a smut manga.

All the stories left me feeling a little confused, but each one of them was intriguing in one way or another. The artwork was really well done with the exception of the sex scenes which were a little odd and kinda hard to figure out. Character development was poor and sexual content felt rushed, but that's expected with one shots like these. All and all I'd say its worth a read if you're looking for a collection of interesting fast paced yaoi.

Beautiful men, disturbing stories!

The stories have beautiful characters with questionable personalities, and super long creepy fingernails.
What ticked me off the most here was the censorship where you often didn't see the
second person at all. The sex scenes are beautifully done but the censorship kind of ruins them.
There's lots of psycho mind (and sex) games going on, but it's not bad enough to make me
stop reading. Some parts were actually very moving! (Read chapter 4 even if you don't like the first 3! It's a gem! Chapter 5 is great as well, there' better than the first 3)
If you want disturbing, dark themed yaoi then this might be for you.

Most of the stories are dark except for the third one, and the most complicated story is the 1st and 2nd last. I don't even get what they're on about! All i see is raping, dying and hurting each other. It's a waste of a time! Don't bother reading this at all!

the stories had a lot of potential but in the end I felt like I was left with more questions than answers....its not that it's confusing, it's just that it didn't seem to delve into the subject matter on each chapter...btw, this is a collection of oneshots.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Also, I was confused in the 4th story....did Hanako die or was the seme made to believe Hanako died to make them separate just like what happened when they were younger?? pls message me abt this! >_<


I also agree w/ daniyagami, the art is ok but the nether regions are literally invicible when the action is on going, and it lessens the erotic feel to it. If the mangaka wanted it be erotic without it becoming porn (japanese standards for porn is sensitive regions to be shown, if they're by any means covered/censored then it passes as non-porn...I know what you're thinking, but yes it's true) it would've been better if the sex scenes were strategically drawn instead of making them look like barbie dolls going at it like bunnies.

Also, some body positions were just drawn anatomically wrong....but taking all that aside, the stories were good if you like dark angsty yaoi mangas...

a couple of the stories were good, with quite a bit of depth for oneshots. the titular one especially has a nifty plot with a twist i didn't see coming (that's always fun in BL because it is extremely rare). yeah, yeah, the doc has sex with an older man; so don't read it if old people having sex grosses you out. i also liked the rusty swamp, maybe because that one is particularly tragic. silent voice didn't quite fit with the dark theme because it's rather sweet.

i always like minami's art, though it's not at its most lush here.

Generally not good. Some exceptions, though

That's not something I'd normally complain about, but what ruined this manga for me was the excessive sex. Generally, I didn't like it. The description sounded interesting, with a complex plot...well, it's not. Most of them are overdramatic and don't convince you to care, so it didn't keep my attention. And I didn't like the art much, too.

The first story is disgusting. How can Rei have sex with the doctor right after he'd been doing it with an old men?! Gross. It had a good plot, and it's been wasted with meaningless sex.

The second story is better, though. The plot is different from everything I've seen before, and I give it credits because I loved it. But again, too much sex...and that takes out the time that should've been spent with a better developement.

The third one was cute too. But nothing much too it, just cute.

Fourth one is also disgusting. I like sadistic semes (actually, they're exactly my tipe), but Naomi is a little too much, and Honoka is creepy. Despite all this, it is really sad and deep. Had potential, but unfortunatelly, it was wasted.

And just to surprise me, that last one was also really, really sweet and didn't disgust me at all. I normally don't like gentle semes, but Kagami was quite a catch =P And Jin was really cute too! I liked it a lot!

Why all stories by sensei must be so confused? Why she never drawns the male details if she is drawing a smut manga? Those are my only complains.

It's rather dark themed. Beautiful art, plotwise it's definitly different from your average titles. Expect a lot of sex, with dolls too.
