More Questions Than Fulfilling Story   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

I think there could be an explanation to the two personalities of the uke. The story writer -Shima-sensei- doesn't really tell her audience when Maya is lying to himself. He tries so hard to tell himself he doesn't believe that a person can possibly care about another (solipsism?) that even the audience believe him. It does make for a frustrating story, though. I think if the premise of the story was kept, and the dialogue played better to convey the emotions, it would have been a more cohesive story. Instead, Maya's motivation really isn't explainable with what is left for the reader. Hormones? lol

The politician was the one I was interested in. He can use people so ruthlessly that he isn't even affected when one of those people are so anguished they commit suicide? What kind of psychology or background of life has created this person? With a deft hand and clever mind, his story could be written and illustrated quite intriguingly with intense psychology. Here, he just falls flat.

I didn't like the fact that the seme kept trying to enforce his self-righteous way. I understand trying to help people, but man was he aggressively opinionated. Maybe it was the dialogue that made him come off slightly oppressive because his base emotions are understandable.

Interesting to read; I didn't put it down. Teaming up with Kanbe-sensei for the art played a part in keeping my commitment. As Grumble_Cakes perfectly said, 'it's elegant and clean.' The politician is a good study for further projections. IT raises more questions that actually offering a fulfilling story.

Hot Mess, more like.

Combine very shallow characters with an even more shallow plot, and you get this manga.

The characters behave according to the mangaka's whims and not to any sort of rules of logic. There's some excuse for the uke's erratic behavior (though not an ounce of psychological realism to the portrayal of his condition), but what about the seme? One minute the he's totally uninterested in the uke, the next he's desperately in love and determined to "fix" him. Which I found to be terribly disappointing. The uke needed no fixing! Maya was a much better character than the uke's drippy alter-ego. And the whole plot involving the congressman was creepy (which it should have been) and confusing (which it shouldn't have been). Why go to all the trouble of
Spoiler (highlight to view)
brainwashing someone into becoming a sexual blackmailer
when a prostitute could've much more easily been paid to do the same work?

Recommended only to diehard fans of this mangaka. Otherwise, if you really have to read a manga by this artist, you'll find that almost any of her other titles are better than this one.

The "X by day, Y by night" plot device is not my favorite but this one was handled pretty well. I really enjoy Kanabe Akira's artwork- it's elegant and clean.
