Tokano Yuuka has been going out with her boyfriend Yazaki Norikazu for a little over a year now but doesn’t get to see him everyday since he works in a different city as a newspaper reporter. Although they are apart, they love each other and things are going well. Norikazu gets an opportunity to interview Saeki Keito, the lead singer of the most popular band in Japan, Zero Sum Game, because they were good friends in high school. Being a fan of the band, Yuuka gets to tag along. However, Yuuka gets raped by members of the band while Keito distracts Norikazu elsewhere. It seems that Keito is infatuated with Norikazu and wants Yuuka out of the way. After the traumatic event, the relationship between the three becomes extremely complicated.

offically junk, it ended people and you can already guess who she ended up with...
Some shoujo logic, sad attempt of a seinen plot and xrated art.
Do they even know who their target audience is.
HATSUKI Kyo added to mangaka's I should avoid.

Basically it's a remake of this mangaka's other work "Sex Crime". If you hate stories where women are raped into submission and fall in love w/ their rapists then don't bother with this.

Although the one thing that separates this from it's predecessor is that the boyfriend actually has some backbone.

I have to admit the plot is stupid, the characters' stupid but it's one of those mangas where I find it tolerable because of its art. Face it, there are other H/ Borderline H mangas with more nonsensical plots out there. Considering its genre, this is mediocre.

I love the art, love the sex scenes, love the hot guy with the mole (who cares what's his name is) and I love the girl's facial expression (Don't bother about her name) whenever she gets violated. [She looks tortured and's quite rare to find an H or Borderline H mangas with facial expressions like this!].

The reason why I give this manga an 8 is because I simply like the art. And I like the other manga the mangaka made Sex Crime, that's pretty good too. The art, I mean.

If you can get past the rape (I don't particularly care about this, but a lot of people might) and the whole "It's borderline-H but not really" (I don't view it as actual hentai because the H scenes are too short and sparse), you arrive at a decent manga with an extremely dark subject. That might also be an issue in itself. There is no "good guy" - this manga will probably end with various crimes unpunished, and you will probably get mad at several of the characters, though many of their traits are entirely human. Even if you like dark subjects, you still might not like this. It's not particularly well-written, and it suffers from some of the porn-logic of actual hentai.

This one is from the artist of "Love Junkies". The artwork certainly is as good as you would expect. But in contrast to the aforementioned, this manga definitely is not for the soft-hearted kind. Right at the beginning the girl gets cruelly

violated by three guys
and her boyfriend who is not far from the scene does not even notice.

Holy shit.

She actually ends up with, not the boyfriend at the beginning who was clearly in love with her, but the guy who had his band mates gang rape her. What. The. Fuck? I seriously think I just found the worst male & female lead in a story ever. I don't feel sorry for her. She and Keito are awful human beings.

...yet I can't stop reading.

I have a feeling that this is heading to the Keito/Yuuka direction -- which is, imo, freaking messed up. I don't really mind this type of pairing in fiction as long as the author has a good story to come up with it and not just some mindless hentai. Oh, the art is pretty awesome too. I can't wait for more chapters~

I think Cross and crime is the remake of Sex crime,everything is the same just less graphic scenes since Sex crime is hentai.The artwork in Sex crime is better though,the characters seem more realistic

This series is a horrendous hentai adaptation for the obvious reasons and it stays Borderline-H + NTR till the very end it seem as i looked at the ending out of curiosity and it does lead to the morally reprehensible garbage i expected from the start. Wow it even ends just like the hentai original! "Rape as a start of relationships" tag indeed and there is also a creepy teen prostitution subplot because why not insert pedophilia too?
One can barely get worse overall and i will never look at her (?!?) works again as they get 3/10´s from me at the most. Akita Shoten is further just the worst as usual so look at the rating and then look at something else unless gang rape as porn and rampant misogyny are heaps romantic to you. Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo (8.5/10) is a good manga about infidelity, Mars is a 10/10 rape drama, Natsu no Zenjitsu (9/10) proves that explicit sex can work in a manga without becoming porn and Sensei o Mite Kudasai (7,5/10) is a hentai manga i could enjoy.
The last 3 have reviews by me so stick to them and walk away... Now.

dont waste your time. yuuka's an annoying birdbrain, all shes got going for her are her boobs. yazaki is clueless and really naive to the point where its not even believable. the lead singer is not even evil or whatever hes trying to portray, hes an ugly (in all meanings) childish wimp whos desperately in need of a good punch in the teeth. this manga was so bad it made me angry. cliche and annoying, just DONT read this. >:[ ugh!
