I really don't like the main story (chapters 1-3), the "love" was just way too shallow and meaningless.
I did however love the 4th and 6th chapters, both so funny, I mean how could anyone just forget that they've been kidnapped lol. 5th chapter was nice too.
I don't like the art but somehow the sex scenes are still decent.
So my rating is for the oneshots only.

I didn't care at all for the main story. There wasn't really any character development and there can only be so much master/servant stuff before it really feels only like abuse. That one crossed the line within the first chapter.

I really liked chapters 5 and 6 though. They were fun, more lighthearted and quirky in their own ways. Not amazing, but enjoyable. Nice art to round it off.

Common yaoi. Just plain.

I can sum this up pretty easily:

Chapters 1-3: spoiled-brat-type seme and in-denial-type uke (plus, he cries x.X).
Chapter 4: Gentle-adult-looking-type seme and reluctant-type uke.
Chapter 5: Just-turned-gay-type seme and ordinary-no-personality-type uke.
Chapter 6: okay, I might have to make an exception for this one. Both the characters are adorable, especially Suguru.

Overall: Hot sex scenes, a lot of sweet-talk, some cute moments indeed, no originality and everything predictable as hell.

Since I was in the mood for that kind of light-hearted story telling, I quite enjoyed it.

Now I gotta pay special attention to the main story because of a few things:
- First of all, their relationship skipped a big part. Itís quite common to use that same storyline in yaoi, but there was something weird about the pace. Shinobu didnít want to feel like Kengoís toy since the beginning, and only then did he think about the ďI wanna be free from this cageĒ thing. Like he was in love with Kengo for no reason at first and then suddenly wasnít anymore. What I mean is, the order is reversed from how it should be.
- Also, the ending frustrated the hell out of me. Itís like Shinobu and Kengoís relationship didnít develop in the slightest. Like the whole mangaís story was totally meaningless.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After all, it didnít even turn to love. Shinobu never even realized he was in love with Kengo; and Kengo, who was clearly in love with Shinobu, didnít confess. Shinobu was kept as Kengoís toy, without any further development.
Itís like this story was incomplete.

What I particularly liked:
- The metaphor about Shinobu and Kengoís toys Ė Iíve never seen it expressed quite this way. They usually say the ukeís a toy, yes, but never compared them to actual toys. Itís just a detail, but I liked it.
- Kengoís just my type of seme. Heís so mean itís even more unrealistic Ė and sexy as hell! And heís so perverted itís laughable! I love him =X
- The last one-shot. It's really cute, not as predictable and I really wish it was longer! Also, their love's a bit bittersweet, because they took a freaking lifetime to be together. Aaand it was sexy! All that rope thing, ahh... Oh, and it was actually original, to differ from the rest of this manga.

Anyways, this whole volume has a compilation of Minami Haruka kinds of plots (some of them even had the exact same order of events and twists) and basically the only great thing about it is the art. Every single seme was freaking hot and every uke was cute. Quite a sight for the eyes.

While on the subjectÖ If you liked the first story (or those kinds of stories), read Minami-senseiís Saihate no Kimi E. Itís exactly the same story, to a point itís even scarily alike. BUT Saihateís an excellent manga, one of my favorites.

The art was very good and the later stories were funny and entertaining, but personally I didn't like the title story that much because I just couldn't stand the guy who kept the other as his toy. I wish there was a better end to it, then I think I'd like it more.

1-3. gah, im such a sexist cos if the toy is a girl i would have hated the seme so much. but since hes a boy i find the power play very titillating. idk i have a rape fetish o_O but the crying blushing face is such a turn on. 9/10

4. nice shallow read 7.5/10

5. another nice story 7/10

6. cute and funny! i like how both of them have such ridiculous complex. 8.7/10

the titular story is an expansion of the oneshot forbidden toy, but unfortunately it doesn't build enough on that to make it worthwhile. there's still not enough development -- and i don't mean they need to fall in love and kengo becomes a decent human being (though for those who want that, the extra gives a glimmer of hope), no, it can remain dark, but some real development is needed so i care at all. it wasn't powerful for me at all but mostly dull -- yet another possessive, abusive master, yadda yadda. i really require some psychology from dark material, some insight into the human condition -- or at the very least hot sex, please. the sex here is alas not hot either. potential wasted.

Sun's Playboy is a good antidote to that (except you might not care if you're into non-con and abuse, since this is pretty much the exact opposite). perfectly normal people in a perfectly normal story, with lovely art which is even better than usual because there are interesting viewpoints. also, bleach-blond, tanned surfer dude is hot, there's no raping, and that's a nice change after that first debacle.

the other two oneshots are humourous; luckily i tend to actually like her humour; it is so playful. and the sex in Even Beyond Dreams actually is hot, yay.

Decent main story; interesting one-shots

I liked the main story from the start even though it wasn't exactly original because I'm a sucker for those cliché submissive!servant and abusive!master relationship that would inevitably end in lots of angst, suffering, and torture.

However, it really bugs me that there was no relationship development throughout the whole story; their relationship remained abusive from start to finish, and their level of communication and understanding remained low as well. Perhaps it would've been better if, instead of having random one-shots in between, the whole manga story had just focused on developing the main characters more.

Main story aside, though, I really like the one-shots from chapter 5 and 6, especially 6; they were cute and smutty with not too much fluff or too little plot that I find them too cheesy or uninteresting.

this story is kinda too pushy. makes the uke seemd like really a damsel in distress. and he kept having this stupid way of thinking... well, he should be after years of slavery like that, but he kinda self pity alot-- and i dont really get it. i mean come on, you can always say no! and the posessiveness of the master just there to make the story go on. it is unreal and i do think this is just a simple dramatic yaoi story.

The first story is a little dark with the whole "you're my toy" thing going on; and as such the best/happiest ending you could really get out of it (from the extra) is a sort of monumental yet still empty/unfulfilling situation. However I really liked how Kengo was drawn, very attractive. The final story was probably my favourite.
