Miriette Le Fay if this was really yaoi there would be another male involved in this weirdness happening but there isn't...the description is correct...almost yaoi in a vague way

anyway, the face of the teen in the story reminded me a lot of suehiro maruo's art! possibly an influence...i wouldn't be surprised...heh

apart from that this didn't reminded me of suehiro maruo's works or anything else in fact....actually this kind of bizareness is rooted in japan's art centuries ago from ukiyo-e paintings...but even though i've read quite some ero-guro this is something new and i enjoyed it for that

i don't think it's any scary really...but it can scare younger readers most i think...not that it has anything so appalling actually...ero-guro can become much more unsettling than this...quite some times i felt nauseated and couldn't finish what i was reading but not with this

I've been a guilty admirer of Yamamoto for a while now. His art is beautiful, truly beautiful, beautiful enough to bring it a depth not many can manage. He works in a "pop ukiyo-e" style with a decidedly sinister resplendent with traditional beautiful boys and lovingly detailed decay. But it's also explicit gore, and I have an intense dislike of gore.

I stomached it for this oneshot. Was it worth it? Well, my mind will never be rid of those images. But maybe that's the point.

I don't think this is "almost in a yaoi way." This is really yaoi... I think... ^.^
Interesting story with a lovely realistic art.
Read it if you like Ero-Guro.
