Description
Here we get to follow a story about Sawaragi from Takaga Koi daro.

Continues the story of Sawaragi-san after his jail time.

Having been sentenced to 5 years in prison for dealing drugs, yakuza Kyousuke Sawaragi just wants to finish his sentence and start a nice normal life far away from his past. So after parole, when he literally runs into former cellmate Shuuya, he's in no hurry to renew their acquaintance. Fate seems to have other ideas though, having the yakuza and Shuuya repeatedly cross paths with him. Can he really turn his back on all of it, especially if it holds out his one chance at finding true love? It's exciting romance as only the famed Saki Aida (S) can write it and Yugi Yamada (Close the Last Door) can draw it!

I can't stop loving this. It is probably the best manga I've read. Mostly because of Sawaragi and how mature he is. He got control over the situation, he know what's happening, yet somewhere he is still unsure what he really wants with Shuya. I just love the way he's handling it. Shuya is all lost in life, and you can see Sawaragi really cares for him.

The art is fine, the plot is realistic, good and sometimes charming in a cute way, the characters are the BEST. I can't wish for anymore.

After I read this, I read Takaga Koi daro, but I was surprisingly disappointed. Though, it's not a bad manga, but I enjoyed Sawaragi more than the main couple in there.

I'm SO looking forward to the fourth chapter!

I've liked this manga a lot. It's a fine, well developed yaoi. It's full of feelings, action and smexyness. Not to mention the art... I find it very beautiful. One of the things I've appreciated is that the protagonists act in a reasonable way. In a lot of yaoi manga things are too rushed, and characters seem to run so fast that they're ridiculous or clichéd. On the contrary, the pace of this manga is perfect: the flow of the narration isn't too slow, but it isn't even too rushed. The two main characters are interesting. Sawaragi is cool, he always has things under control, and even if he seems cold, he's a caring, gentle person. And what about Shuuya? He's just too sexy and hot! But he's also lovely and his eyes are so beautiful ─ I know it may be strange, but I was very moved by some pictures of him. I'd recommend this manga to anyone who likes yaoi! Finally a yaoi with a decent plot.

This was such a sexy and enjoyable manga. One of my favorite characters in yaoi are in this manga. Sawaragi-san is my ultimate seme He is tough, smart and sexy. Shuuya is this adorable guy whose life has been very cruel to him and you just get to love him. They make a perfect couple and compliment each other so well. You root for them all the way.

Please let me add....

I HIGHLY DISGREE with the two people below me!! The sex scene in the end was needed and made the story even better, it added to the plot. These two people who have fallen madly in love with each other are FINALLY getting the chance to show their love for each other physically and that is undneeded!?!! How?

The plot revolves around them slowly falling in love and the sexual chemistry was always there between them and they never got to show it, so the sex scene symbolized their freedom to do whatever they want with each other, feel the heat and actually make love! and let me add the sex scene was HOT HOT HOT.

I feel like many people would agree with me. The outcome was the best part, actually, so expect a wonderful ending.

I really liked the prequel to this so I am happy to see this finally finished. I really enjoyed it. The characters and development are quite good and have a natural flow to them. Sawaragi is a really stand-up guy and a rare kind of man to find in yaoi. I really, really value character development which feels *real* and is neither forced nor rushed, and this manga has that. On the outside this is just a typical story, but if you've read enough garbage I think you will find that this has more to offer than average.

Somehow, I've come across a yaoi manga that's actually... good.

Seriously. I even had to create a new list to put this in. I think this is the first time I'm reviewing a yaoi manga I fully enjoyed. Allow me to elaborate. The characters are realistic and actually sympathetic, and they stay true to their multi-faceted personalities throughout the story all the while developing in a steady, believable way. The art is sparkly and clean with nicely-designed characters who, for the most part, appear distinct from one another. The plot is sturdy and holds up fairly reasonably within the world of the story. And, perhaps most importantly, I felt genuine emotions while reading this. The character interactions I found to be far more profound than those in most yaoi manga, and the reflections on life and human suffering proposed by the author actually have context in reality, unlike most pseudo-philosophical yaoi drivel. The end of this manga gets pretty melodramatic, and the sex scene in the last chapter seems unnecessary (or, at the very least, unoriginal and unfitting for the couple), but aside from those two small complaints, it's a pretty solid story overall. Definitely recommended for those looking for a more complex portrayal of guy-guy relationships, or, hell, just anyone looking for a love story that's actually - dare I say it? - cute.

On a side note, it was also pretty nice to see a homoromantic bisexual character (Shuuya) in a work of fiction, since most people donít seem to understand that romantic and sexual inclinations donít always match up all nice and pretty.

You can tell this shares the same author as the S series of novels- it's realistic when it comes to crime, yet tender when it comes to the lead characters. I haven't read the prequel, but I'd imagine it's just as good, though without the central yakuza plot.

I know some might find the addition of the kitty a little useless, but I think it works completely. If you've ever had a pet or if you've ever been in a situation where you had to rely on the good will of others, you'll know what I mean.

Edit: Oh god, Toshiyuki Morikawa is the voice of Sawaragi on the drama CD. My insides just exploded. <3 <3

I didn't like Sawaragi in the prequel, but getting to know more about him here sure changed my mind!
Both characters were likable even though the "given up on life so now he gives away his body" type of boy usually is hard to bring across well - I really liked Shuya here.
The only thing I'd have to say is that I think a story like that isn't made for only 1 volume. I felt that there was a lot missing concerning their relationship and how they changed. At the start they didn't like each other and they're very different characters - neither of them really looking for love, so I think that if the manga were longer and we'd be given more time with the characters, have them slowly change it would be easier to understand why exactly they now fell in love with one another.
I feel like it's a bit disconnected and shallow, I can't follow the reason why Sawaragi fell in love with Shuya exactly, or what made Shuya realize what he wanted.
Well, aside from that, it's still a good manga and worth the read!
Also still love Izumi and his lover as well as the kids... I'd love to see a story about Makoto and Ai since they're already hinted to turn out gay in the future...lol ...

believe it or not I will be very bothered by the art if the story isnt that good. But it's that good, or I might say, the seme character is very interesting. So I keep reading and even dying to read more!

This story is fairly cliche. It's a fair cut above average manga only because two very talented people worked on it. But nothing in it was noteworthy or creative, and I didn't get much emotion from it at all, despite attempts to do so on the parts of the author and artist.

This is not a couple that I like very much. And I'm also cranky that there have been other manga by Yamada that had barely a chapter for a couple I loved, and yet this couple gets a whole freaking book.

But yeah, not loving it. It's not awful, though. Just...regular. And I think it's only in comparison to the prequel that it's kind of disappointing. And also I severely dislike the "prostitute with a heart of gold who only needs someone strong and masculine to protect him/her." Blech.

Most part of the manga was good, strong 8/10 (maybe more, i actually wish the story was longer), but the last two chapters felt hugely rushed and simply lame (especially the sex scene, imho it spoiled the dramatic/romantic feeling of the story). All in all, I agree with AsexualFujyoshi ^-^v I guess, it's still worth reading, just don't expect too much from the outcome ^^;
