The Second and Third Story
Hmm so, I was going to rate this a 1 based on the first story alone. That just didn't do it for me, and the dialogues were just to cringey. Though on the whole I find this manga unpalatable. Especially the character designs. What worked best for me was the second story. It's not that I have a problem with supernatural powers, as vaguely as they are shown here, but the story seemed to have more coherence over all. It's just that.
good, bad and okay
Theo an Millie - the best couple. (friends become lovers, lovesick seme, cold uke). Shion and Luca - ok. (mute uke story). Zenji and Madoka - not good. (neither plot, neither character design... they looked like 30-years old guy having sex with 12-years old girl/ladyboy, my eyes were bleeding).
Love the first two stories
Okay, at the moment I'm really torn as to decide how to rate this manga. I love the first two stories so much that my expectation for the last one a.k.a. the title story was raised so high, only to get it totally flopped later with dissatisfaction.
For the first story, I do think the setting and premise is intriguing and interesting enough, and the smut is surprisingly good, so it managed to get on my good side despite the problems I have with it.
I really love the second story, not only because I've always got a thing for unrequited love, but also because of the super charismatic and loveable characters that you can't get tired of watching. One might say they are typical, but that fact doesn't stop the story from being awesome and leaving a very good impression on me.
Thus when coming the last story I had such high hopes only to be met with disappointment. That doesn't mean it's horrible, it's just that the story got on my nerves because of some of its huge major flaws and didn't really offer me anything to get me recovered from that dissatisfied 'slump' I had. However, because the ratings for the whole manga here seem a bit off, I guess I'll still give it a 10 to balance out. If only I could rate the first 2 stories exclusively though.
Such a good manga! Great stories (I liked "Bet" the most) and lovely art, with a lot of visuals that would be great in anime. A pleasant surprise! Will read again!
@Kinky-Chan: The "cheating" wasn't about controlling his desire - it was for work (it's like James Bond doing the nasty with an enemy spy) that's why he had the "no biggie" attitude. Which is of course debatable too, but it seemed to me that it was so obvious to him that having sex with his lover is completely different from doing H stuff for work that he just didn't think about it from Madoka's point of view. Didn't connect the dots. And how he made up for it was very sweet.
the first story isn't really my cup of tea. Plus, it was partially ridiculous. I mean, if a guy saves you from some weird disease and yet you still have the heart to go and have sex with another person just because you can't control your desire seems totally foolish to me. Elements like this isn't even necessary. It was a weird twist and it wasn't even interesting enough. I like the last story however. A mute who can't speak yet the other party can hear him speaking. It's so cool! At least there's a meaning in that story. It's cute and sweet, very touching too! Like how the uke tries his best to do what he can. It's simple and direct. I love it!
I'd like to try more from this creator!
Amazing! Unique characters, compelling development, heart-throbbing relationships, smooth art, but way too condensed. Still, it was worth reading. The title story was extremely captivating! Rating for that story.

At least the second story is. I liked the first story until the seme
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
cheated on the uke like "eh, no biggie"?! Really? This guy saved your life from a terminal illness and you think "ya, it's totally okay for me to bang some chick in Mexico because it's a place of 'passion'..."?! And he said that he didn't see any problem with "cheating," so deciding to do it again doesn't seem like a it would be a huge moral dilemma for him in the future. And to come back like, "hey I brought you this sweet mask, aren't you happy?" thinking that he can get away with never telling Madoka anything about what happened between him and a couple women pissed the hell out of me.
That rant being said, I really like the second story with Luca so far. I usually really don't like the whole feminine uke thing, but Luca is just so sweet and surprisingly naive for all that he's been through. I'm really looking forward to reading more.

This a more down to earth manga but with hyped hallucination and fantasy
I was pretty much let down. Although I like how they continue from one story to the next, I was totally expecting so much more. It reminded me of a psychological based theme, of which I hate, and I was pretty sure there was more than one occasion where I reread a page and still said 'what?'.
But I still like the first story. Something was attractive about it. It wasn't until that arc was over, the third chapter I think, did the story start to get confusing.
To be honest, i was disappointed. The art on the front cover made me want to read it. I did... and i was let down -_- I wouldn't recommend this since I've read better ^o^ I will still wait for chapters 7-10 to come out though, since the summary for that really appealed to me
the art is 7/10, story is 8/10...normally, this manga would render good as a pass time but there's something in it that draws your attention and keeps you excited over the next chapters and the premise of the story is also something different from the common yaoi stories. So far from what I have read, the coming chapters will still be entertaining.
