Description
"What if Jose and the bullfighter in Bizet's classic opera 'Carmen' were lovers?" This is that idea, brought to life.

A retelling of the famous work detailing one man's twisted love:
"I must kill that woman who leads my heart astray"
A beautiful factory girl tosses a rose at a soldier. Little does he know that the same flower would bring ruin upon him...

It drips, it flows, so red, red, red - a 28-page oneshot!

A different take on the classic tale. I like the idea here, though as far as the plot goes I don't feel myself adequate enough to judge the author's interpretation. Personally I have never read the original 'Carmen' but only knew of its plot summary, so I can't say I fully understand the characters' real thoughts and emotions behind their actions. However, one thing I know for sure, is that this one-shot here is undoubtedly an interesting perspective, very ambitious and intriguing. I think that I like it.

this is a story of the original tale 'Carmen' but with an added twist, i wont spoil it for anyone it is quite short after all but i love how the mangaka changed the story by adding yaoi elements. it sort of makes u feel like this is the story of what originally happened and that the tale 'Carmen' is a cover story of what people thought actually happened.

Anyway i like this one shot and recommend it.

I found this story to be rather intriguing. There just something about the way it was presented: the way it was written and drawn. I also just seem to have a thing for emotionally/mentally unstable characters and matadors. I've also never read a manga with matadors in it, so this gets a plus for originality there as well.

I hate being so vague, but I'd hate to ruin it for anyone.
