interesting...but clunkily written

i actually really like the premise and the dynamic between the two main characters. wachi is the stereotypical cold bastard type you'd usually see abusing a girly uke in another manga but he goes all mushy when he meets makio. makio draws him in and seems to trick him all the time but his feelings for wachi are obvious. i wish we had more insight into makio's character to see what makes him tick and what made him choose wachi (to flesh out both of their characters at least, as of now they're a little on the flat side)

my one major problem with this manga is the way it's written. it's so melodramatic and clumsy that it's painfully laughable sometimes. when wachi suddenly started crying because of his suddenly found feelings or whatever i literally burst out laughing. it feels like bad fanfiction writing. i hope it improves because i like the premise. i'll continue reading for now.

noooo as someone who thinks this is a really great series the seminegative reviews made me feel sad

The story is great, it's unique, and the art is gorgeous. Sure, Makio scams Wachi over and over again, but I think Makio just tries to test him and loves conning people. He wants to see if Wachi will choose him, choose to trust him and love him, even if he pushes him farther. In the end, Makio doesn't /really/ scam Wachi out of anything because Wachi consents to it all (he knows what he's getting into) and the borrowed money is returned. In his own way, I think Makio is looking out for Wachi.

I find Wachi's love for Makio, despite his brain telling him otherwise to not trust him, to not be so close to him, beautiful and romantic.

The art was cute, but the story made me grit my teeth.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't like how Wachi keeps letting Makio scam him. It's frustrating and sometimes I just wanted to punch my screen and tell him to find someone who actually gives a damn about him

The relationship is mostly one-sided, too. If stories like these fit your taste, I'd say you give it a shot. But stuff like this just isn't my cup of tea.

Cliche, sometimes grating, but entertaining.

I have to say, I don't care for how this series romanticizes unhealthy relationships (in the way that almost seems to be making excuses, like, "as long as B loves A, it's ok"--don't get me wrong, I'm all for unhealthy relationships--as long as they're unapologetic about it). Many parts, I don't find believable even in mangaverse.

As a Shizaya fan, this was right down my alley, except, well. Wachi is rather pathetic, and rather dumb and probably an emotional masochist. So just bear that in mind. They are not equals.

The art is great, and Makio is drop dead gorgeous, and his personality and slyness makes him 100x more alluring...

Hm. I have mixed feelings about this series. Is it worth reading? Yes.
