From Turtle Paradise:
16-year-old Kizuna stalks the city at night, flirting with middle-aged salary men and coercing them out of their money. The thrill should be enough to satiate her, but Kizuna remains unsatisfied with her everyday life. That is, until the beautiful Inoue Yuki, also living in "Birdcage Manor" approaches Kizuna with a job proposition- to model in the nude for Yuki´s cousin, a painter and fellow resident Yusei Asai.

First thing i would say is: I don't like shoujo and especially the female leads but this manga was not what i had expected....

The plot was okay but the excution was done really well. The art was also really good and so were the characters. I dont usually like the female leads in shoujo because most of them are usually dense but i loved the female lead in this manga because they showed her very strong and smart.

Everything was good; it had a lot of potential....however, the ending kind of sucked...

It just didn't end well but still, it was a great manga

I would recommend this if you don't have a thing for shoujo

theres a lot of unanswered questions especially toward the end. however, this is mangazition of novel, so it is understandable for more in-depth story one need to read the books. still, it is great as it is with beautiful airy art and engaging characters. plus point for the translation, they did a great job making them sound so upbeat.

It gives you a josei-ish feeling even being a shoujo, due the fact that the guys are all young adults while only the girl is a teenager (who doesn't go to school). Overall, it's a nice and refreshing love triangle. A well developed story with some mysteries to unveil. As a shoujo fan, i must say this one has became one of my favorites.

This manga is really interesting and unique in both art and content, so I really enjoyed it. From the very first chapter you can tell its going to be heavy, but its protrayed so you rethink it...And then wham; the heaviness attacks again! You can't help but feel attracted to Yusei. He's a pretty bad mess when you first see him (emotionally, though it just seems he's a arrogant poop head)...And you have to wonder, can he ever come back from seeing his first love kill herself?

In all honesty, there were times when I wanted to smack Yusei (The male MC). Other times I wanted to hug him. People say that he Kizuma wasnt a good fit for him, yet as I saw it...She was the best thing that could have happened to him. I even believe he met Minako so that he would someday meet Kizuna. Though I do feel bad for Yuki...(I really liked him... Though in the beginning I felt as though he was thrown in for the sake of a love triangle and that the author only later decided he was actually a guy)

There were only a few problems that annoyed me, the first and foremost being the execution of the plot. I found that little snippets and bits were strewn in without any real explanation. Such as Yusei and Yuki's mothers and fathers, their little siblings. You never learn about Kizuna's past and the "daddy long legs" doesnt come into the story until you're like; Wut?

Still, it was worth the read.

I haven't really read anything like this; the main character is very uniquely characterized, and so is the setting and plot. The characters are all special in their own way; they have individual traits and pasts that make them who they are. Still, with that being said, I didn't really enjoy this. The art was lovely and varied, and here was a nice bit of humor along with the drama and romance... but I just didn't like it!

I totally understand why other people love this, since it's definitely a high quality work, but I guess I didn't like Kizuna all that much. She was a great character, but I don't think she fits with Asai well, since she'll never really understand him. Plus, I feel bad for Yuki, who's awesome, and suits Kizuna more. Speaking of her, Kizuna's character is strong and unique, but also young, inexperienced, and sort of selfish. She's very realistic, overall... just not my cup of tea. She's still young, so it's understandable, but I find her to be inconsiderate and mean sometimes. I also find Asai to be like that, as well- he doesn't consider Kizuna's feelings, and even at the end, he

Asks her to wait for him even though he says he might never love only her? C'mon, man. That's a little callous.

Basically, this might be up your alley, it just wasn't up mine- the characterization is great, the plot is incredibly unique for a romance shoujo, and there's a lot of psychological stuff that's done pretty well. The art is also good, and suits the story well. With that being said, I didn't like this- even if it's a "different" romance story, it's still a romance story... and I don't think it's a very good one. The two main characters don't connect very well, and I don't know if they could ever be truly happy together. Also, I happen to like Yuki much more than I like Asai, so that makes me like the main couple even less. Still, that's personal opinion- I can't deny this is a well-thought out and well-executed manga. Just not for me.

I loved this manga. I liked the characters, the art, etc.

But my one problem was that it didn't dive into the main characters background. I just wanted to her know how and where she got her strong character.

The had one page which they hinted at her witnessing some abuse and they also mentioned that her mother was dead, but they never told us exactly what happened to her.

Also the guy's families seemed to have some problems, but they never really dealt with it. I felt bad for the two kids. All this could have been dealt with if the story was a bit longer.

It was a very good story and I loved his character, it was fantastic. Kizuna's characterization was good as well. However realistically speaking I don't think the relationship would work out between them. I am all for romance in a story, and she is very pretty but like it was mentioned earlier (kind of) in the story, that he has quite a few hang ups and their are some problems going on with him right now. In the future it working out, I suppose it's possible. But for me I didn't see the chemistry. (Course I may be biased cause I never liked her character, even though it was good characterization.) Don't get me wrong, I like her character in some ways, I just don't like her.. with him.

This struck a chord with me because I'm pretty similar to him, she just doesn't understand him, not really. If it were me, I would never want some one like her.

This manga surprised me! It was different and it wasn't cliche or shallow at all which for me was a breath of fresh air. Two things i really loved about this manga is the character development and the pace of it all. I really loved how each character overcame a huge obstacle that allowed them to break out of their shells and comfort zone. They grew stronger together and learned from each other. I have no idea why people don't like the main character because she's quite strong! She's never been a whiny, quiet, submissive character at all! Anyway.. the pacing of the manga was amazing. Nothing was rushed or too slow, it all had great timing and the pace of it all (hope this makes sense) was perfect. The art was beautiful too but I really loved how the mangaka was able to show us each character's world and how different they all were. The world of a painter who's time has stopped and the world of a teenager who's realized how much time has passed, struggling to find herself. Both characters breaking out of their worlds, joining reality together. It's beautiful, it's a slice of life and very much worth the read.

This was really quite beautiful for me smile I loved how much each of the characters grew and how she wasn't too sterotypical and what not.. Kinda gave me a similar feel to Nana..(surprisingly). But not nearly as 'dark' I guess or sex filled. Haha :3 I love the art and the plot was good I think I'm going to go read the light novel biggrin.. Anyways it was enjoyable <3

Wow, this manga just blew me away... I normally don't review mangas unless it was uber horrible or brilliant and non-cliched..... This manga just totally exceeded my expectations and I had no idea it was going to turn out like this. It may seem like a simple and normal manga at first, but you just keep turning the pages and become so immersed into it... It has that magic that seduces you and you don't even realise you're up to the last chapter! I finished it in one go. And that's SUPER rare. I always fall asleep but it's currently 3:52am and I have managed to stay up just to finish this beautiful manga. Totally recommended. Don't get put off by the prostitution tag because there is none lol.

Also, I don't know what the other people are saying about the heroine... She isn't typical at all. Her character development was amazing. Her willpower and strength was so admirable (not physically, I'm talking about emotionally etc.) I actually really like her character and that is so rare because I hate almost every shoujo heroine that exists LOL
