It wasn't bad, it had its moments. But e ending was the best hehehe. Though I would've been offended my father adopted another to replace me. And he was walking around their house, how can the police not had found him!

I don't particularly care for this. Even though the concept is relatively believable (because yes some victims of abuse do fall for their attacker) but this wasn't executed all that well. Haruka could've stood up for himself a bit more (he never even asked why he was the target of Homura's revenge) and I was also quite miffed that Homura doesn't even apologise for his actions later on. The only redeeming character in this whole manga was Haruki ^^ He is so cute with an unexpected personality XD I would love to see what happens when he's older haha it's such a shame there's no sequel about him and his father T_T

Aside from the plot and slightly annoying characters, there's also the spelling mistakes in the translation that distracted me a bit. It wasn't horrific but it was still enough to be a nuisance. The art however was quite nice, it reminded me a lot of Kirepapa (as ann03 mentioned below)

Anyway my rating overall was going to be a 5, but thanks to the last chapter I've boosted it to a generous 6.5 as Haruki made me giggle smile

It's a bit hard to follow sometimes from panel to panel.
There isn't that big of a rape/torture plot here (I think)...the "evil" guy never really comes across as being bad or anything so it's not that repelling that the protagonist falls in love with him.
But omg how is the protagonist such a rape magnet?!
And I wasn't a fan of the art. It's decent but oftentimes too simple in bringing across the emotions.
I look for two things in boys love manga: either a story that is so captivating it keeps me on the edge of my seat, or pure entertainment, and this manga has neither.
I found it hard to care for the characters, I didn't really like anybody.
Nevertheless it might be worth a one time read (especially if you like art similar to that of Kirepapa (I think) or rape-fall-in-love plots!)

Well....I dunno what I should say about this manga. The plotline seems very cliche, seme rapes uke, uke falls in love, seme got his revenge wrongly, uke forgives him, they end up happy. Sounds familiar huh? That's how this story is anyway. Rather boring, but slightly interesting. Still, it's not something that I'll re-read.

The uke's kindness is so limitless it could probably go for candidacy of sainthood...he is so kind that it border ridiculous. Seriously, the plot would've worked out well if it weren't for the uke's inherent kindness to someone who's done him wrong...there's not even contempt within this guy! which just makes him a flat character -no attitude, no dimension.

Would've been a 9/10 for me for the good twist of the story.

I am delighted to see Aoi-sensei's titles being licensed into English-- especially since they are not the typical fare for yaoi art styles! This one, as well as Awaken Forest are especially a treat!

She has a very unique style of art that is wispy and expressive, almost impressionistic. Her stories are always melodramatic and fantasy-filled, but grounded. She may not reflect reality in a completely non-fictional way, but she certainly corresponds with reality and affects this reader, for one, deeply. I love all her works; and pick up her stories purely based on her name; she never disappoints with her romantic, angsty, dark and aggressive love stories. There is no 'dial it back, Shakespeare' for this lassy! Bless her! And what passionately dark, complex characters she delivers!

Aoi Yuna is certainly a capable wizard of story telling via carefully plotted visuals and words, but if you'd like to see her illustrations giving a go jointly with another story teller, check out her partnered work with Maeda Sakae.

This manga is hard to believe (like most yaoi mangas are) but I actually find this one to be more believable than other mangas that deal with the same situation! I also found the extra to be hilarious, wish we could really see what will happen 10 years from now.

Hah~ unfortunately i happened to read this kind of love-condition 'gain. Yet 'gain i feel sympathy for the one who being dumped. He has done nothin' wrong, just he hold back his feeling for too long. And when he has enough courage to confess, things turn out to be too LATE, over and over 'gain =)), all this kind of story has the same motif. Isn't sound funny? *laugh*. Truth that my heart's twistin' so bad when i see s.o suffers so much while lovin' s.o else - yet heart broken 'gain ( when they confess their feelings) *laugh*. How unfair, how unfair, he/her doesn't deserve to be treated like that; i hate it, how unfair~~~...

It is called 'Kidnappers Syndrome'. Some victims of kidnapping, fall in love with their kidnappers, even if raped/tortured. So, it is not unbelievable in this manga. The rape occurred several times thus building on feelings of sympathy, love and understanding. Well, that is all for Psych. 101 LOL ;)

I feel the same way as the previous person, it is just too weird and surreal but we cannot help ourselves but fall in love, because in the end he is not really a "bad person"? I really enjoyed the story and although this kind of art am still somewhat getting used to is not that bad just a bit weried sometimes on angles.
