Description
Yakuza Yashiro, who only ever loved Kageyama, meets a new bodyguard, Doumeki Chikara. Unfortunately, the latter is impotent.

The masochistic, lewd and beautiful yakuza Yashiro and his silent, clumsy, impotent subordinate, Doumeki. This is the story of a man who has never known happiness and of a man who is reborn by getting to know him.

Vol 1
* Don't Stay Gold
A Yakuza boss really wants this "Mad Dog" fighter he found to work for him, but the "Mad Dog" isn't too keen on the idea, even though he owes a debt. After being injured and refusing to go with the boss, the "Mad Dog" winds up staying with the doctor for a few days. Will the "Mad Dog" give in to the boss to pay off his debt?

* Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai ch 1 - ch 3

* Tadayoedo Shizumazu, Saredo Naki mo Sezu
Yashiro has ...issues (more like a whole damn subscription). He's a masochist with slightly sadistic tendencies who gets off more with guys. Otherwise he's your average high school student. Recently though, there's been this annoying classmate Kageyama who seems to think its his duty to supply Yashiro with band aids for the results of his sexual exploits; through various events they get closer and soon Yashiro develops more than normal feelings for Kageyama but will he experience his springtime of love or remain drowning in unrequitted affection? A yaoi love story with a twist (and a rope or 2). Prequel to " Don´t Stay Gold"

Vol 2
* Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai ch 4 - ch 10.5

Vol 3
* Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai ch 11 - ch 16
* Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai ch 16.5 (tank extra)

Vol 4
* Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai ch 17 - ch 22

One of the best Yakuza plots out there 9.5/10   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

I got to hand it down to Yoneda Kou sensei, when she makes characters, they really have a soul. They stick to their personalities and grow logically in their time frames. This unfinished, adult, dark, and angsty manga is one of my favorites, besides Bi no Kyoujin (which has a seemingly unending sequel too) and gokudou darling (fluffy, very light read with hot abs). For those who would like to start reading, please note the tags included (psychological, smut and tragedy) which are apparent all through out the manga. Also, sensei has been known to drop some of her great plot mangas, which is quite unfortunate (hopefully not this one too). Id give it a 9.5 simply because I cannot fathom a decent and fulfilling ending for the story. Since there is a tragedy tag, Im assuming it would not be a happy ending though. Still, it is a must read (just prepare to be hungry) for hardcore fujoshis out there.

There is so much sexual tension between the main couple I f*cking love it. Each character has their own quirks and you'll probably fall in love with the relationships in the plot. AND LIMP D*CKS.

I'm so happy I came back to this manga. I read it a few years ago up to ch. 10 and took a break ( I think also it went on hiatus for a little bit) and I liked it back then but maybe since I'm not a teenager anymore I appreciate the story more and the different layers. Yoneda Kou continually proves that in this genre of manga, and with manga in general, she has the skill and to create a moving piece of work. Her characters have come to life & the pain and struggle they experience is felt. Wonderful story development, art (as always) and an amazing and intriguing world are all things she has created. Please I advise anyone interested in one of the best mangas of the Yaoi/boys love genre, read this.....it goes way beyond expectation and doesn't rely solely on cheap baiting tactics, but rather a compelling narrative.

And Doumeki and Yashiro's relationship is so emotional....It will kick you in the stomach

Profound. Psychologically real.
Yoshiro totally rocks. So does Doumeki.

Comparing this to any other yaoi manga is pointless.

A story worth its while

The manga went on a hiatus for a while, I believe, but I recently came back to it, only to be delighted that it's picked up quite a bit. Pacing wise, the manga takes its time to develop the undercurrents of the main characters' motives. It's got the yakuza intrigue, but Yashiro's fetishes make him stand out a bit. Yoneda Kou doesn't skimp out on the violence and the political struggles of the yakuza culture, but it's not the focus of the manga either. At the heart of the story is Yashiro coming to terms with his self-imposed, sexual indifference to intimacy (and loneliness as a result) by the enforced sincerity of his impotent body guard Doumeki. Yoneda already hints to the prospect of a bittersweet ending in a few chapters if you read between the lines, but the story is worthwhile in how it fleshes out sexual abuse, loneliness and vulnerability to intimacy. Love it, and definitely a worthwhile read. The characters are by far the most developed I've seen (in ways that aren't in-your-face and superficial) and by far one of the few best mangas out there. Would read again.

THE PEOPLE WHO RATED THIS BELOW A 7 ARE ALL HATERS
THIS MANGA IS THE S*** AND WE ALL KNOW IT. IT HAS EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT IN IT : HOT GUYS, SEX, DRAMA, SEX, ISSUES, DICKS AND SEX, A ACTUAL PLOT, SEX, INTENSE CHAPTERS THAT LEAVE YOU WANTING MORE, HOT GUYS WITH BEAUTIFUL BODIES AND FLACCID DICKS, AND ALL THE GOOD STUFF. THIS MANGA IS STRAIGHT BEAUTIFUL IN A SADISTIC SEXY WAY AND DESERVES TO BE RATED HIGHER THAN A DANG ON 1, IT DESERVES IT'S 10

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.
THIS MANGA IS KILLING ME WITH THE FEELS. EVERY CHAPTER IS FILLED WITH INTERESTING PLOTS THAT ONE COULDN'T HONESTLY HELP BUT FEEL A NUMBER OF MIXED EMOTIONS.

I LOVE THE MAIN CHARACTER. I FEEL PITY FOR YASHIRO TO BE A MASOCHIST, BUT I LOVE THE FACT THAT HIS BODYGUARD TAKES CARE OF HIM PROPERLY. HE DOESN'T REALLY INFLICT PAIN TO YASHIRO (unlike the other manga u know what~~~) BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW TO TREAT THE PERSON HE LOVES PROPERLY.
THE SIDE CHARACTERS WERE REALLY DESCRIBED WELL BY THE MANGAKA THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN HATE THEM. AT FIRST, I WAS ROOTING FOR KAGEYAMA (bc first love lololol) BUT NOW, I'M REALLYYYYY ROOTING FOR DOUMEKI. DOUMEKI KNOWS THAT INFLICTING PAIN WILL ONLY MAKE YASHIRO BE SATISFIED, BUT NOT HAPPY.

I JUST LOVE THEM AND WILL CONTINUE TO (unless some EXTREME bdsm scene between Yashiro and Doumeki will happen, BUT HOPEFULLY NOT!!! PLEASE JUST PLEASE)

p.s. I JUST DISCOVERED THAT A LOT OF SENSEI'S WORK GETS DISCONTINUED/BE ON HIATUS. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET THIS BE ONE OF THE MANGAS THAT WILL BE COMPLETED!!! MY HEART WOULDN'T TAKE IT IF OTHERWISE!!!

Yashiro my #1 Uke!

Words can't express how much I love Yashiro. I am so glad that I picked up this manga when it was translated up to the fourth volume. I came across this manga before but I was put off by the uke who just slept around who's love interest is a impotent bodyguard. But boy am I glad I gave it a second try. The complexity that is Yashiro is very hard to explain and makes me think long and hard about his interactions with people and the decisions he makes. As I read on I can see how he slowly gets affected by Doumeki and how he starts to fall in love with him without he himself even realizing his feelings. Doumeki is the ultimate seme!! He is soo sweet and considerate of Yashiro and you can see how much he respects Yashiro even though everyone else insults Yashiro calling him public toilet, etc. He is so tender with Yashiro that Yashiro can't help but fall in love with him ^-^ This is totally my #1 Yaoi manga and I have also bought the 4th drama cd and 4th manga volume from Amazon.jp

Also for people comparing this to Finder's series I totally can't agree with that. While both might have Yakuza the storyline and characters in Saezuru are on a totally different level. I am also a fan of the Finder's series but it reads more like fluff and fanservice than anything else. I don't get the seriousness of Yakuza like I get from Saezuru. Also the characters in Saezuru have great character development which I totally love!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Doumeki cutting off his pinky finger because he didn't do his job and Yashiro got shot


Well my review went on longer than I thought it would >.>; Anyways if you haven't read this yet I really recommend it! <3 Yashiro x Doumeki for life!!!! I just hope that they will be able to have a happy ending T-T as long as they are together at the end I'll be ok.

Just a sugesstion you should listen to the Drama cd while reading the manga, Yashiro sounds sooooo sexy!!! Doumeki too =D

Story is compelling, art is gorgeous, the complexity of the characters is really well developed. There's absolutely nothing that can top such a well crafted masterpiece. Everything about this manga is amazing. You can't help but fall in love with the characters.

I read the oneshot about yashiro years ago before this series about him came out and it stuck with me as one of my favorite stories. His character was one that I could not forget, and truly wanted to find his own version of a "happy ending". So when this series came out I was so excited, and it has not disappointed. The story is put together perfectly and the characters are believable, a truly touching and amazing creation is what you will find in the pages of this story.
