At the beginning, I got a little confused since I'm not really into supernatural stories, but the more I read it, the more it becomes interesting. The author really put effort into the story line, and I'm glad I gave it a chance. I give it 9 instead of 10 because it couldn't give me a heartache lol but really, it's recommended.

Shimizu Yuki-sensei did it again

With this series I think it is quite visible to see how the mangaka had improved even further from her Love Mode days, both in the artwork/character designs as well as story structure/story-telling. The system of multiple couples is still used, though to an even smarter level imo; I've seen some complain about the 'confusing' lateral interactions between the couples and the large amounts of flashbacks, but for me more than anything they provide for a much more intricate and intriguing read than your normal straightforward stories. Also, this time I pretty much like all of the characters even if some may be more to my liking than others; which is different from Love mode where it's admittedly hard to get into the story with the first couple, and along the way there are some characters a bit hard to sympathise with. This is not the case with Ze at all, making me even more indulged in the manga. And the artwork like I mentioned is more sublime than ever for sensei. Overall a very good series; I recommend anyone old and new to BL alike to give this a try and not be discouraged with the number of volumes.

Another BL Gem

First of all ZE has an interesting concept regarding the kotodama and shikigami. Then it offers a solid storyline, developed characters and well-running plot, executed in a very pleasing enchanting art. The kind that left you longing for more and linger in your mind for days..

Flaws? Back and forth time-line, undeveloped few characters as though they are just space fillers..

This gem, even if the sex scene is omitted and goes work-safe, I believe it still has the charm to engage the reader.

This is one of the best BL manga I've ever read. All the characters have dept and motive and each of their story are interesting enough to keep me at the edge of my seat. Shimizu Yuki really know how to use her characters to push the story forward. She use her established protagonist to build on the new protagonist's story, leading to a new and richer story line. By doing this you will already know most of the characters before their story even start and that will make reading it all the more enjoyable.

I came across this manga and really enjoyed it. I'm just sad it's not scanlated completely.
I love Asari - Shoui couple, and Genma-Himi too.

But I really want to read the Waki arc sad

I'm a bit late, but i've finally finished reading all the volumes of ze and all the extras i can find. And omg, this is way more epic than love mode(which i thought was already the most definitive of a yaoi manga).

Before reading the manga, i'd browsed around some discussion threads and there seemed to be an overwhelming majority of shoui x asari supporters, genma x himi supporters came in a far second. When i read genma and himi's story, i really thought it was the best story and wondered how could there be shoui x asari supporters until i finally read shoui and asari's story. No wonder the mangaka kept that for the finale. Waaaaay epic.

In fact all of the couples are amazing in their own way, and there's a moe point for every yaoi lover out there. I for one totally dig the super intense characters such as shoui and genma.

Although the main storyline is intense and emotive, reading the extras put the icing on top of the series. It puts in the fun and laughter and adds in more colour and happiness to otherwise tragic characters. Love!

This manga has a really great air about it.. The art is gorgeous, the characters are alluring, and i love the fantasy concepts in it. My only problem with this, is like someone else mentioned, is how they focus on a different couple each time. This is fine, but the transitions can be a bit confusing/abrupt and sad at times because i get so into the couple of focus. Also, I think the summary should really be changed. It makes it sound like Raizou and Kon are the main couple when there are several. Also, to be honest, I didn't find Raizou and Kon's pairing particularily enthralling especially as the opening pair. Luckily i got through their chapters and was rewarded with some of my favorite yaoi couples like HimixGenma. The unfortunate thing is how its impossible to find scans of the later chapters and is not scanlated..

Ok, I gave it a try, but it still doesn't draw me in. I don't have anything against this series, and I like the fact that this series portray different relationships. The real reason that doesn't draw me in is probably because of the language used in the scanlation; it's not so intense so it doesn't draw me in. It may have unique story, but it makes me feel indifferent. But yea, I've got nothing against the series or the scanlation. Actually, I'm grateful for the scanlation so that I gave it a try. But the licensed version is so hard to find as some volumes are out of print.

The art is awesome. I felt that the author has improved a lot since Love Mode. The characters are all intriguing (well, expect the first couple, to me they're rather dull and typical). The plot itself is also wonderful. I got strangely addicted to it.

The story plot, the characters, the flow of the story, I love it all. The beautiful art work of Shimizu Yuki Sensei just completely pulls you in and just--- WOW! I don't know how to express how I feel at this moment however, I love this manga so much I'm going to go in search of it and buy all the volumes. This story isn't all rushed nor at too a fast pace. It's rather, the relationships built between each character makes sense and time development is just perfect. Each character story is beautifully written I cannot get this manga out of my head. A job very well done, Shimizu Yuki Sensei. Thank you so much for such a great work and for making such a great manga. I'm really happy I have read your stories biggrin you have become one of my best and most favorite mangakas ever biggrin
