I used to lose my sh*t over this manga back in the days lol. The wait for every release was painfully tantalising but then the payoff when each chapter was updated was worth it every time. And somehow two years had already passed before I even realised it. That's how insanely good it is. Even despite my gripe with the ending, it is undeniable that this is a brilliant work of art skilfully craft under the hands of an exceptionally talented mangaka. Love, lust, suspense, drama, all are encompassed with the gorgeous artwork and make for a very thrilling read. It might not be to everyone's taste, given the subject matter, but those who do like to explore and discover new wonders should definitely give this a try.
I’m pissed off by the ending.
Dark themes are my guilty pleasure so this manga was right up my ally. I enjoyed the story it told and the characters it portrayed. However, why couldn’t sensei carry the same quality until the end? There was little wrong with the execution of the manga until that cheesy ending. The true reason why to tag this as tragedy is the lost potential in this manga. I was very confused by the conclusion and loose ends. It just felt so out of character from everything this story could have been. Most of all, the character of the big brother changed too much towards the end to my liking. I feel betrayed on behalf of the characters. How can I ever get rid of this sour aftertaste whenever I look at this manga again? I could rant about this in detail for hours. It could have so ended better…
A sad lovestory
This story really caught my interest and I really wanted to see its progression. The art was amazing, the plot was really intriguing but I didn't like the way it ended. If you have read Haru wo daiteita, you should know about the "Winter Cicada" story that was told at some point. That one was a masterpiece and it was so heart-breaking and meaningful and perfect, it left me a lasting impression. "The inheritance of aroma" started off as an original story but I think that Nakamura-sensei reached a wall along the way. And so, she deciced to gather elements from other, great mangas and chose an ending that is really, really similar to "Winter Cicada". There was a lot of potential in the story and it could lead the protagonists to different paths in life.
Not my usual cup of tea but hell that was good!
I'm not into incest. This manga somehow lures me thinking it was not incest but turned out as one! But I still like it! LOL
The art is also gorgeous!
This manga was great! I've been reading since there was only a oneshot, so I appreciate the two additional volumes. The emotions and turmoil were depicted really well. However, the event in the last chapter was way too sudden in my opinion.
I agree with @mysocksgotdirty it really did have a potential but

the ending is not that good I already know that this is not a happy ending but theres more of it I dont know if the author just got tired of it or what but theres a story but the ending is just cliche if only theres another way of killing the protagonist maybe this will be a good tragedy
overall its a good read.
One of my favorite manga IF I just ignore the ending....
God dammit, I love this manga, I love this author and this manga is pure gold. You should read it.(If you're okay with the incest theme).But the ending was very disappointing to me since....
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was no happy ending. A freaking tragedy. A major waste of time. We couldn't even see them have a good life together...And it had so much potential!! Why end it in the cheesy old accident? Even if the author didn't want them together in the end, why do it in tragedy? Runned out of ideas? Got way too incestuous? (There is never too much!) The mangaka could simply end it the way we wanted.... Soooo much potential wasted. But it might just be me...
I guess this is a dark manga from the beginning to the end, and it had to end in the way it did Although it didn't satisfy me I am sure a lot of people will still love it.

I lost count of how many times I went "wa-how!!" This... is dark and elegant, and so fascinating. Nakamura-sensei is a master of dark BL. * q*) I hope the last chap comes out soon...
Dark Yaoi by Nakamura will never make you disappointed
Once i read Coponicus no Kokyuu, i knew that Nakamura Asumiko would be my favorite mangaka. I love her dark, twisted stuffs (more than Ogawa Chise, my other fave). Everytime i read those stuffs of her, i keep thinking and thinking about so many things. Oh, and her sex scenes are perfect. Raw, seductive and alluring

orgasm to the eyes
I have to admit Nakamura is few of the artist that has the strong impression on me.The art is so fucking perfect.It seems so fragile, vulnerable but mysterious, seductive and compelling at the same time.As if the art alone is not enough, she puts the whole things on another level with the plot.And everytime, she never fails to make me in awe.Shes far ahead all of those conventional n somehow mediocre yaoi stories and there's only one reason you hate her because once you let her in, she s gonna capture you.Damn, i love this woman
