The story starts off simple, but enticing. High school boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with a secret affair.

The problem is that the story simply loops around whenever the story gets to a point where it SHOULD naturally progress further. For every step forward in plot, the story takes 2 steps backwards by introducing new characters/elements. Need to delay the affair plot line? New character! Need to delay the boyfriend-girlfriend plot line? Introduce a new element! Need to delay the affair plot line again? New character! Need to delay the boyfriend-girlfriend plot line? Well... you'll just have to wait for chapter 21 and find out.

It doesn't help that the characters are cookie-cutter cliche. The MC is a spineless wimp that spends more time mentally monologuing to himself than he does trying to talk his way out of situations. The girlfriend is a childhood friend, the affair girl is a rich girl and the MC's family? Nowhere in sight after he burned down the house playing with candles in the attic. Literally. His house being burned down is in the first few pages of the chapter 1, and in full color no less.

Don't expect fine writing either. Even though each chapter is fairly long, rarely is there a chapter where the MC does not have sex. And these are LONG, sex scenes.

UnlimitedBlades, you're the one reading the wrong manga. Yukiteru apologist...and trying to paint Yuno as the "villain" in light of everything the creep MC has done to her...(not to mention how she breaks later on because of him). Not to mention how he sleeps around on the girl he supposedly "loves".

Yes, the main character is an asshole but he's at least at first he was a somewhat believable asshole. The love triangle between the three mains is interested and if that's all this manga was then I would have rated it a lot higher. You don't need a likable lead to tell an interesting story.

The problem is that the author just couldn't leave it at that. As the series goes on he tosses more and more girls into the mix, each less believable and less developed than the last. The actions of the 'protagonist' don't even make sense anymore. It's totally illogical. He continues to tell himself that he truly loves Saotome while he fucks every random pussy he happens across.

The author should have just made this a hentai story since that seems to be what he really wants to write. About the only thing that could make me like this manga at this point would be a "nice boat" ending.

Uwakoi is nearly the same exact formula the mangaka used to write Aki-sora. There are small changes to make it seem different but so far it's almost exactly the same. Aki-sora wasn't well written, and neither is Uwakoi. None of the characters feel real, the motivation behind each character's actions is shallow at best, and girl after girl throw themselves on the MC as if his penis was a pussy magnet. The focus of Uwakoi seems to be on being as shitty of a person as possible. At least the art is good.

No no. Theonething below is right this is just a creepy porno from the Aki Sora author. Which was exactly that + incest. You know what you will get from this manga so this is a plus but the manga offers nothing for me. Just some frightening sex, one dimensional characters and nothing else. The art is ok. Just stick to hentai. You will get more.

Hold on, hold on! I see a lot people hating on the MC and saying stuff like "Poor Yuno". This really surprises me because I have a totally different view of things. Granted, I'm reviewing from the recently translated chapter 17, so some of the stuff I draw conclusions from probably hasn't been translated yet.

TLDR; What appears to be a spin less scum bag cheating MC and an innocent victimized childhood friend/girlfriend is not at all what it appears on the surface. Just who is the real victim here? If you're interested in what I think read on.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Anyway I'll explain why Yuno feels like the "villian" in this story to me. I know there are a lot of people who just fangush over annoying mentally unstable yanderes just for the lulz of it, but this particular case is not the norm. In most works the yandere is all over the MC but the MC doesn't have any strong significant others in mind (Case in point, Mirai Nikki). Taking this in mind it's understandable that people side with the Yandere's feelings.

However in this manga Yuno was shown to have signs of mental instability from a young age. Right from when they where kids she was fixated on making Yuki her possession. When another person fell for Yuki she took extreme, presumably violent, measures right away. For a child her age to have the capability to enact such violence isn't exactly normal or healthy. Yuno's actions also served to build a psychological cage around Yuki, constantly pressuring him to fell as if he belonged to her, as if she should rightfully love her. Pushing him into saying things like "I'll stay with you forever" while he was still a kid and never really understood love. Then when they are at the age of puberty she takes his past statements as shoves them all over his face everyday, reminding him of his "place" in life.

From the flashback chapter it is shown that when he met Saotome he found out what it really meant to "like" someone. However all those years of psychological imprinting Yuno did paid off. He wasn't able to muster the courage to tell Yuno the truth, and that he really didn't love her.

Hahaha, but he really has no good options. Yuno is like a powder keg that could go out at any moment. If he where to tell her the truth there's no doubt in my mind that Yuno would go right for the knife. Heck she did exactly that in the beach house chapter! I actually feel for the guy. I absolutely hate indecisive spineless male leads, or cheating scumbags like Makoto. However from what I see, Yukiteru is NOT being indecisive. He clearly loves Saotome, he says so clearly both to her and in his monologues. However he cares for Yuno too. He lies to her to face about "loving her" but I feel that he's motivated by both his genuine care for her and his fear of her backlash.

I guess Saotome understood this, so that's why she was willing to go along with Yukiteru's "playing with fire". She likes him to the point where she's not willing to let him go, but she too isn't brave enough to face the wrath of Yuno. When she tested the waters in the theme park she deduced that things would turn ugly if she confronted Yuno.

Well it also doesn't help that both Yuki and Saotome get off on doing dangerous immoral things on top of being in love. They're really cutting it close though, dancing with a yandere like that. I will however, concede that Yuno likely didn't corner Yuki intentionally. It was her mental instability/server fixation on everything she deems to be hers that caused this unfortunate situation for our protagonists. It seems like she really does love Yuki, and Yuki cares deeply for her, just not in the way she wants him to.

The one person I don't particularly like is Yumeno or whatever that sluts name is. She knows about how violent Yuno would get if she let the truth slip, and uses that to her advantage. Well she's not all bad in that she doesn't seem to have too much malicious intent. However I really don't like the way she plays around with Yuno and Saotome's dangerous potentially life threatening situation just for LULZ.

Of course, it could turn out that I'm all wrong. In Ch18 we could find out that Saotome doesn't love Yuki and is a slut, that Yuki is just a spinless coward afterall, and batshit insane murdering Yuno is actually just "misunderstood" lol.

Mirai Nikki Fan Fiction?

it's seriously bothering me that they are referenceing mirai nikki so heavily, It feels like i'm reading a doujin, from alternate world 4 or something, everything is similar but slightly different.
yuno dateing yukiteru, yukiteru is pretty much copy pasted - clothes, yuno got her hair cut but except that it feels pretty much like the same character.

the setting is very diffrent thou, no diarys or dietys.
artstyle is a bit diffrent too.

I like this guys work, always have. Even so, it's become very predictible. it looks like it's going to follow the same pattern over and over until it gets to the end. Then somewhere close to the end, the shit hits the fan and thats that. I think it would be much more interesting if the female love interest would find out what a scumbag he is early on as opposed to later. She is so clueluss. If she stays clueless through the whole managa, its gona be really boring. It always teases that he's about to get caught, but it never happens.

Male lead is quite hateable admittantly. I can't help but wish he dies later just because of what a PoS he is. Same with Saotome. Makes me feel sorry for Yuno. Story is ok. It's decent enough that I'm willing to continue reading the series until the end, and actually look forward to the next release to see what will happen next. Art is good no doubt about that. I dont care about the sex scenes so I won't take that into account. But still I don't think it's as people make it out to be. I've seen quite a few series worse than this so giving it 1's after only 7 chapters..? I'm giving it a 10 in defiance to all the people who harshly criticized it before it even got to 5 chapters. I'll only ammend the score AFTER the manga is complete.
