I keep trying to give this a go, but I can never get through it. I love plot, but unfortunately I found this very confusing for various reasons. I feel as though I need historical knowledge to follow, which I do not have. The flow is also very strange and skips back and forth through time without warning and because of this I find the characters to be even more difficult to keep straight. I may very well be too stupid for this one. Haha... I don't normally come across many series which I find difficult to understand though. I will probably give this another try at some point because it seems to have potential.

Basically the author didnt make Yaoi, but rather a shounen with gay main couple (yeah that's weird) so if you want your gayporn to be overloaded and dont want to deal with too much plot, then this might get you bored.

so I've been reading until chapter 8 so far, and yet the story hasnt really unveiled yet. But basically this is what happens:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Suikei Ajari (the main uke) was the crown prince Atsuakira's twin, and that time twins were seen as misfortune so one of them must be killed when they were babies. But the man who supposed to kill him took him instead, raised him as a priest in Mt.Kouya and prepared him as a curse "vessel" one day, meaning he would be the one to take enemy's curses that were supposed to be directed at the Crown Prince, without the Crown prince knowing about his existence.

Ashiya Douman (the main Seme) was found by Suikei when he was a boy, wounded and deserted in the snow. As expected, he's head over heels towards Suikei. Later he also became a Priest in Mt.Kouya, and they had lived quite a peaceful life together until 'incidents' happened (what incident, it hasn't revealed completely) that he had to left the place. (My guess, one of the reasons was because he "tainted" Priest Suikei while to be a "vessel" Suikei has to be pure and such)

I make it sounds so simple and cliche but believe me it's not that easy to grasp the problem, because the timeline's random, and it's like broken pieces gathered together. The story began with Douman battling shits in the mountain with the cursed tattoo on his arm together with his freakshow convo, busy in thoughts, mumbling who-knows-what, and how they're still connected and shit. Flashbacks, Banshees and Elderly conversations take places randomly. It turned out that that day was the day where Suikei started life as "vessel", hence Douman wanted to get him out of where he was.

I personally find this story very interesting. xD

As for me,If you like Maiden Rose (Hyakujitsu no Bara), you might like this one. IMO the plot itself is more interesting than Maiden Rose (and the Seme looks better, still manly but hey you can call him okay) , though Maiden Rose still excels in smut. I dont expect Smut to happen in Hari no Hana, at least not in the near time.

Hmn great art, nice story but man is the timeline confusing. This is riddles with back steps and flash backs and it makes things difficult to follow at times. There are also alot of historical references in titles and names which if you're not familiar with them also make things a little hard to understand. So far its promising despite the confusing flow and complex elements. I'd really like to read more.

the story so far is good but you might do a double take to understand the plot, also I give it a 9 because I see the mangaka's characters from Hyakujitsu no Bara recycled and made into what it is now here in this manga, though it's far from the game to say if the relationship between the main characters would become the same of that from HNB.

Overall, this is a very interesting story and it shouldn't be passed up by readers who are in for a yaoi manga that evolves not from sex but by a real interesting plot.
