Some great oneshots! Last one is a gem!

The first story was confusing and I might not have been concentrating enough but I didn't really get it.

The other one-shots are good though, they basically get better and better, so it's very worth it to read on! There's some for everyone in this manga.... even a oneshot taking place in the wild west, not bad!

The ...let's say ...unusual smut scenes alone are worth reading this (if you are into smut that is) and the last story is a real gem, it's full of melancholy and emotion.

Read for 'Music' and 'Cage'

'An Ark of the Prince' was a brave attempt at the sci-fi genre within BL. I've only seen this pairing a few times. I am a hard sell for sci-fi but when I love it - I fanatically love it. This one just annoyed me. It was confusing. And the mangaka does not create characters that I feel for. I really didn't care to have my confusion rectified.

Touching, poignant and tragic: All words to describe the oneshot 'Music at the Break of Dawn.' I would have liked to seen 3 chapters delving into this story more than the Ark of the Prince. I was left with unanswered questions, but i was happy that the mangaka had at least created the DESIRE within me that I wanted to know the answers. It was immensely more satisfying compared to the Prince storyline or the Wild Sons story line.

'Cage of Eternity/Love Chocolate' was the other saving grace in this volume. It had hotness in it (although there was potential for far, far more hotness). The stockholm syndrome is always a favourite theme of mine in BL. Again, the characters were underdeveloped and the dialog and scenes didn't reach out and grab a hold of my emotions like other oneshots have. Still intriguing, though.

'Wild Sons' I have reviewed separately on it's own page.

I have yet to pinpoint what it is that mangaka's whom I adore do that this one isn't doing. I strongly believe that the story ideas created by Enjin-Sensei are strong - and could be all be fantastic mangas. But there is something in the delivery that crashes and burns.

Great art.. the "Music At The Break Of Dawn" oneshot was incredibly sweet and touching. I ended up liking the oneshots more than the main story.
