The best IF you ignore the ending, of course

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 veeeery disappointing since....
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was no happy ending. At all. 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 she 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 I guess this is a dark manga from the beginning to the end, and it had to end in the way it did. I can't believe the ending will make anyone satisfied. Because of that, this manga left me with a bad taste in my mouth and a very sad face... sad

Strong philosophy, weak hero

Read chinese raws of last chapter. I have mixed feelings about it.
Author is the greatest philosopher, i admire her very much for doing outstanding beautiful works. Her drawings are amazing and the plot of this manga is making reader to think about life.
I have been reading this manga from it start. Every week i checked for ne chapters. But i didn't see the final, of course.
The author decided to do philosophic manga at the end. That is her choice. And i respect her choice. Now we have a manga which is outstanding as it is. I cant put it in yaoi genre, it is too simple.
But my rate will be 9 for this manga. Just because i see manga as the source of positive and motivating emotions. The hero (big brother) seemed realistic, but weak one, who could not decide. I dont like this image of a hero.
This manga made me realise some things about morality and life. But I am just not a fan of manga which is made to overthink our life. Life gives lessons by itself, so i expect manga to give me strength to live positively.

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...

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

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

The art might throw some people of a bit but the plot will definitely get you hooked. It's slightly disturbing for its taboo contents but that's what makes it even more appealing, well at least to a type of person such as myself. A definite good read.

i love this woman's's really elegant...but i'm sure many ppl won't like it because it looks weird and anatomically incorrect

i find the story a bit hard to believe...and the reason is this small boy...some things he said do not make any sense and wouldn't happen in real life....but apart from that i liked it...story and art
