...Torikago Syndrome's the kind of manga that practically no one will like, because it doesn't have enough BL to satisfy the fujoshi, but just enough subtext to scare away everyone else. Personally, I wouldn't call it 'shounen-ai' at all, but the tag's best left there because typical shoujo fans probably shouldn't read this anyway. It's only target audience is the handful of people who are neither fujoshi nor BL-haters.

That aside, considering its length and the premise, I found it fairly enjoyable in a twisted kind of way -- certainly better than some of the shounen series that deal with the same theme in that, despite being a story about a bunch of violent and selfish schoolboys who enjoy tormenting each other in bizarre ways, it doesn't treat torture and murder as normal things that everyone's capable of, and there's no glorifying of the violence via the protagonist embracing the same lifestyle.

I don't get why some people say the plot's confusing, because it isn't at all. Everything's explained by the end, and while I wouldn't call those explanations "logical," they suit the insanity of the characters pretty well, so no complaints there. That being said, because of the length there isn't enough space for the suspense to build-up smoothly, which is a pity, but not a big enough flaw to give up on the manga altogether.

Overall, it's interesting enough and a quick read, unlike some others with the same premise that drag on for 10-20 volumes, so if you're a fan of unconventional shoujo and don't mind some BL overtones, this is worth a try.

This was my first shounen-ai manga I've read (not counting yaoi as shounen-ai) and the first chapters had me hooked and I was drooling over the art and the boys were to die over. But to me the ending seemed a little rushed and I was confused the last two chapters. Overall it's good but not the best. The art alone gets a 9/10 from me, but the story was intriguing but felt lacking with the ending.

So tsugumi, kain, and licht were all brothers? Was kain and licht twins? And was Abel and rinhand step siblings? Me slightly confused... The story was over dramatic though, it was so bad. The art was nice.

They need Jesus. It's sad day when that line comes from me (especially in a fictional tale), but that day has come. The school is messed up. The only solution for something that extreme is Jesus

Sorry, as beautiful as the art is, plot makes little sense and has little depth in spite of its attempt to dress itself with mystique. Boring. It probably only made it through the editing department on art alone, with the mysterious tint just enough to give it some meat. Bad and don't bother.

Stunning art!

The art is stunning, every page is amazing... And the colored ones? Just wow! The manga is an eyecandy to drool over. The characters are so beautiful. The cast is full of pretty boys.

Only 2 chapters have been scanlated so far, but I already love this manga. There is some great humor, the plot is unique... The characters are cool... did I mention they are beautiful like hell? XD
