Yuu is a young and handsome executive, a ruthless businessman and a charming party guest ― but at home he’s just a wilful brat. Suffering under the pall of an abusive childhood and a dark family secret, Yuu’s only friend and confidant is his loyal secretary, Asa. Asa is hopelessly smitten with his boss, but no matter the intensity of his devotion, he suppresses it out of obedience. But when Asa’s manipulative university senpai suddenly emerges in the business world, both men must to face up to their pasts and the truth of their relationship.
Initially I was annoyed at the amount of telling, as opposed to showing, that went on in the manga’s first chapter: rather than letting the reader decide for themselves exactly how coldly competent and desirable Yuu is, we’re treated to the soliloquies of receptionists and the vapid oohing and ahing of socialites in order to define his character. Another annoyance for me was that the plot’s major conflict could have been defused almost immediately if Yuu and Asa had simply communicated with each other. I hate it when that happens! That being said, I enjoyed the subtlety of Asa’s expressions as he tried to remain professional and impassive while clearly smouldering beneath the weight of self-imposed silence.
