Nice crime story with soft BL in the background.

It's a good, fast paced entertaining story with complicated plot and very beautiful art. A lot is happening in this short (3 chapters) story so you should be careful to not miss anything. At times it's confusing and I had to reread some parts to fully understand what happened. But I did it, it's not as messy as someone said. Too bad there's no sex scenes.
As for the religious motive - I usually say no to this kind of stories but this time mangaka didn't cross the line and as for me it's not inappropriate. The whole story is about clones and mad, evil or maybe just stupid people from certain organization who wish to recreate a God, it resembles a bit The Da Vinci Code written by Dan Brown. If you are not too sensitive about faith matters you''ll enjoy it for sure.

One more thing - it's not a nice time killer, you have to use your brain to catch up with the storyline, so it's not good for a quick read.

I didn't completely understand what happened in the end, who these kids were or what happened to Adam but I got to say, I didn't like the fact that sensei used a religious theme for her story. I feel that even though artists are free to use things from reality to write/draw their stories, religions and things people think as holy is something they shouldn't put their finger on. I didn't like it because the whole thing felt wrong.

I thought I'd see super long hair guys? Well... I didn't in any case.

I didn't really like the art style, especially with those excessive lower lashes. The speech bubbles used are well... you know, weird, too. Ruins the mood = =;;.

As for the story, it's kinda confusing. Or rather, very. I honestly didn't get anything more than the guy named Chris has a friend named Takeru. There just weren't enough explanation.

With all that said, it's not exactly terrible... but considering I barely understood anything, I cannot give it a higher rating.

Τhis manga is very different from anything else Iíve read as far as shounen ai manga goes, probably because it was written with Showa period novel in mind. Itís a bit fragmentary and feels short, but itís definitely an interesting read. It deals with things like cloning and religion; itís just happens that the protagonist is a gay man and while love play major role in here, it has little to do with any typical shounen ai issues.
