The story felt like it was going somewhere at the beginning and then it was unclear what intentions "Sensei" had towards Takagi. The ending was, to me, about one of the only things that actually made sense. They didn't really end up together? No, they didn't. But sensei declared, in his twisted way, how special Takagi was for him. The dream shown at the end is very subtle, so I understand why a lot of people were dissatisfied. To me, it means they found each other in their little corner of the world, even if nobody else was there.

As for the art, it isn't very good, and frankly, the 5th boss was too ugly to be in yaoi. The good think about it were the sex scenes: not enjoyable in the least. I'm not those kind of people who are totally against rape in yaoi, but since they were indeed rape scenes, they were horrible and I didn't like that. And that's exactly how it's supposed to be, so I consider that to be good.

Quite a controversial and psychological theme going on in this manga without a doubt. I actually thought that it's quite interesting and intriguing the way the mangaka presented the issue through the characters' internal thoughts and actions, and the manga definitely does require proper reading for full comprehension and not just skimming through the surface. If anything, I feel like the story's a little bit underdeveloped and the volume's length doesn't leave enough room for maximum characters exposure, as strange as that may seem.

The story summary seemed so enticing, however that was just the bare minimum of the story. The story felt like it was going somewhere at the beginning and then it was unclear what intentions "Sensei" had towards Takagi. The ending was wishy-washy too, expected reciprocal feelings but it was still one-way. Though I enjoy yakuza mangas, this one was a let down compared to others (Bi no Isu, Kobi no Kyoujin, Viewfinder)

after all the other review i thought this is gonna be bad, but it is actually very good! i like the character development however twisted it is. the happy ending is very fitting here. i dont know why people give it a low rating, just because the happy ending is not the version that is sugar coated.

Two me, it doesn't really get good until the first two chapters are over. With that being said, in my vision, you'd have to be patient to get to the good part. I think the first two chapters don't have solid bases and seem like any other S/M/yakuza manga. Sensei doesn't seem to have any personality at first, and Takagi's another common yakuza-boss-seme: violent, cruel, but mostly spoiled and childish to the point he does whatever he wants because he has power.

Then the manga suddenly turns into something else entirely. The story gets twisted.
Takagi turns into the star of the manga as his personality changes completely. He then becomes a puppy, whose love towards sensei is so big, he's damaged by it. He becomes clingy to sensei and waits for praising to even stand up on his own. More than that, he actually becomes weak and desperate, completely lovesick. To that point you must understand how it is to feel bad for a character, because his side is really sad.

Sensei, on the other hand, I started to hate. He is the one who was responsible for Takagi's personality change and yet he was all condescending, saying "he bores me" and sh*t. And he gets even worse, looking only for pleasure and disregarding Takagi's feelings towards him, with whoever makes themselves presentable for his needs.

The ending was, to me, about one of the only things that actually made sense. They didn't really end up together? No, they didn't. But sensei declared, in his twisted way, how special Takagi was for him. The dream shown at the end is very subtle, so I understand why a lot of people were dissatisfied. To me, it means they found each other in their little corner of the world, even if nobody else was there.

As for the art, it isn't very good, and frankly, the 5th boss was too ugly to be in yaoi. The good think about it were the sex scenes: not enjoyable in the least. I'm not those kind of people who are totally against rape in yaoi, but since they were indeed rape scenes, they were horrible and I didn't like that. And that's exactly how it's supposed to be, so I consider that to be good.

Well, as opposed to everyone else, I'd rate the first two chapters very low and the last two high, so I'd give a medium rate like everybody else, but for different reasons - more like opposite?

PS: Doubt: Goto almost seems to be in love with Takagi, or is it just me?

It's kinda sad actually.
I've never read a yaoi with the uke being completely, to the extent of being creepily, masochistic. It's an interesting experience reading this, definitely. The seme wants love from the uke, but the uke simply needs the seme to treat him badly. The uke asked the seme to abandon his heart. Sigh. That's so sad.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
also the uke turned out to be masochistic AND sadistic.

The art is okay... not that great, and not that bad either.

I don't recommend this for romance lovers xD thats the first warning. The second is that this isnt at all light hearted. If you've no problem with that keep reading, you might enjoy it. Anyway, i read this out of curiosity, and i have to say, despite its dreary atmosphere and crazy uke i sort of enjoyed it. But... the ending could have been a bit more satisfying for sure, it feels like a cliff hanger rather than a real ending, yet at the same time i can see how things probably wont change. I do feel sorry for the Boss though, he gets so hopelessly hooked on Sensei yet in the end all he gets in return in pain... i guess one bad turn deserves another in this story.

decent start, hapless continuation

the start was promising because there wasn't any of that "i rape you and then you'll instantly be in love with me", but rather some very interesting feelings on the part of hagiwara (the rapee). but it quickly went downhill. i am not sure how much of this is due to the translation, which is full of english errors and doesn't flow naturally, but the artwork continues to deteriorate as well. and i just don't care enough to seek out the raw. a 4 because this is overall worse than average (the art is just never very good, so it doesn't pull it out of the slump for me).

Great great greaaat first two chapters, the story line really sucks you in. Now the last two werent bad persaaay but it just seems like there needs to be a sequel. I think its cause sensei *spoiler* still hadnt professed his love to the boss and thats why everyone didnt like the ending. but its definitely worth reading, somethin different. And i have a fetish for yukuza love so...ya teehee ^ ^

I am being VERY kind here giving a 4. This was (to put it in one word) TWISTED. The story wasn't that great the artwork wasn't that great either. I am writing this review after reading for a second time. i couldn't remember reading it the first time so when i downloaded and read page 1 I instantly remembered reading it, but, I find it really twisted, and I am all into different styles but this, I wouldn't even say it had much plot. man goes to work for gangsters as a lawyer, gangster takes a liking to him, man wouldn't submit at first so gets beaten, man then enjoys getting beaten. WTF. so.......oh damn I have a list of words i wanna say but...... anyway this is definately worth skipping unless you are into this sh*t, which i certainly am not. give this a miss
