I am glad to have read this even though it wasn't very good. The story is quite simple and enjoyable with pretty art, but the characters are awful and not very likeable and that makes the story awfully executed. This could have been great but instead it's more annoying than anything.

Typical, but not in a good way

Well, the obvious has already been stated below. The first couple of chapters are really intriguing (admittedly I'm quite fond of imagery metaphors) but that's it, after that things just begin to crumble and fall flat in the end. The promising development hinted at the beginning also didn't happen but turned out for the worse. After reading till the last page, I decided to categorise the manga as another typical BL story with typical characters and typical actions to carry on a typical plot driven by - you guessed it - typical developments and motifs. If anything maybe the art isn't too typical and all but that doesn't necessarily mean it's ingenious either.

It's true, I smiled like a stupid kid at the zoo every time you could see his majestic mane, ahah. Also, I don't agree that the story was that average. I mean, sure it could use some work around the edges but I liked more than a few things about it, namely Souta - his loneliness, his chocolate, the whole deal I found it painfully adorable. It could definitely use more chapters though; for starters, there was a little tiny bit of angst but with characters such as these you could get a hell of a lot more -- what drove me here in the first place was the "bullying" category, a huge, powerful subject, and so I got a little disappointed in the way it got discarded so bluntly. But other than that, it was quite an enjoyable reading. The high rating is mostly on behalf of the art. I absolutely adore it. I keep coming back to this manga on account of the art alone. Ah!

I thought I liked the story, turns out I didn't. The characters seem flat, the story seem flat and overall the story is pretty blah. The story doesn't deal with anything that's brought up so it's like reading a half-story of something.

The first chapter looked interesting, but now that I've finished reading it I can say that the rest is pretty meh. The characters act because of reasons that can't be grasped, the plot is superficial, the last chapter doesn't clarify anything and there are some WTF moments that really need to be explained.
I liked the edgy art, though.
I suggest the reading to someone really bored who wants something short.

Shouta's attitude is just wrong. Sure, he does not want to dirty Eichi so he does not want to to be with. Yet, it his damn fault to be so loose and dirty in the first place, he slept with other people. Suddenly, he randomly become strong(?) and decided to be with Eichi (did he get any cleaner now?). Would it be nicer if he treasures himself at the beginning and when Eichi shows feeling for him, he can say yes without worrying about being dirty?

I've been following this one since the first chapter and decided to wait until it was fully scanlated to officially decide whether or not I liked this manga.

My conclusion: not really.

I like my yaoi with dark under tones (which this one had) but I felt like the things that happened and the way the characters acted was purely to pass time. The characters could've been explored a lot more instead of just mentioning small things things from their past that are supposed to *explain* why they act the way they do. Everything was just thrown together so quickly in a frustrating way that the ending felt rushed and unsatisfying, when it could've been a million times better had their pasts been explored more extensively. Overall I didn't hate it, I enjoyed the art (especially how the mangaka drew the seme) and it's worth a read if you're bored (but don't mind dubcon).

it definitely was, but at the same time there was something nice about it. I just hated that the uke would always look down, almoost never facing the people...
Maybe some 6 or 7 out of 10...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Wow the plot is really good in this manga wtih the erotic cliffhanger. After forcing himself on his friend Souta, a guilt ridden Eichi feels it is best they part ways. The depressed uke leaves a message for the guilt ridden seme stating he stll wants to remain friends. Before Eichi can return the call, Souta is "comforted" by his lusty concerned boss at the grocery store where he works, in his bedroom. While the two men are engaged in intercourse, the phone rings and the story ends. Guess whose names pops up on caller ID? Sounds like an interesting love triangle in the works. I hope the update is published soon.
