Shiro, a laid-back and absentmindedly seductive umbrella craftsman, is (surprisingly) a close friend of Kojiro, a hot-blooded young police officer who stands against all things undisciplined.
With their mutual knack for attracting trouble, the pair soon find themselves involved in a bloody and erotic thrill-ride in their off-kilter town full of equally off-kilter people. This action-packed jack-of-all-trades manga will have you swooning at its sexiness and leave you more addicted than opium—guaranteed!

What a tease!
A manga with great potential. I can't help appreciating each page, with the detailed artwork will set any reader into frenzy. Very very beautiful, and the art is unique. Hope to see more character development soon, though I do feel the manga is progressing far too quickly in a way where it implied the world's impending doom with Shiro getting kidnapped and would like it if the author could slow down and let us appreciate the moment before everything is revealed and the end. Shiro is one of the best character I've seen, and Kojiro complements him really well. I do wonder whether it'll progress to the point of BL because the recent chapters really do seem that way, this could be way more than the usual bromance. Although Shiro can be a flirt, it seems as though he keeps Kojiro in a special place in his heart, and what's with Kojiro getting jealous of Shiro and Anri's relationship (something fishy here). I'm pretty happy with anything as long as it's a Shiro and Kojiro moment and hopefully a happy ending in the far future.
I feel sorry for the art
Eh... It has gorgeous art and tons of fan service for girls (actually SO much that after several chapters I started to feel quite repetitive, but if you don't mind then off you go!). The stories are a bit disappointing for me. Like the summary on Baka, it is jack-of-all-trade, i.e. a mix of every genre: action, shoujo, mystery, psychology, comedy, parody, with a hint of BL as well, but it accomplishes at none. Plot twists are weird, almost nonsense, I feel like they are only there to show off more comedy and fan service. The characters are too one-dimensional for me, but that is personal taste.
I guess if you like the art and the characters, you will love the manga. Unfortunately I only feel the art has been wasted.
In the Top Ten
I just started reading this manga yesterday night, and even though I have to go somewhere in the morning I couldn't fall asleep for nothing!! This manga is so god damn gorgeous, and sensual and funny and scary and all kinds of other adjectives. I've found a new manga to add to my top ten, so something definitely has to be kicked out. I don't really mind the episodic nature of the manga cause I'm a BL fan and wouldn't be very interested in a over-emotional, clumsy woman always getting in the way. Although I love/hate the BL fan service cause it pleases me yet frustrates me, open romance would really through off the story. It's a pity though, cause if this manga had a shounen-ai or yaoi tag I would've found it a long time ago.
Exotic and Erotic
This series is like a grandiose circus show full of flash, glitter, exoticism, and mystery. It's divided into various acts, or mini-arcs, where the characters solve a case or observe a series of related events. So if you like mystery, and/or tales of human drama, there's one reason to read it.
Secondly, it's got lots of fanservice for girls. The dudes are very sexy, quite often in various states of undress, and sometimes talk dirty. And they're all very bromancy with each other. Like other reviewers have said, it's NOT BL - the two male leads get grossed out when "gayness" is mentioned. Shiro is pretty much a man-slut. But people who do like BL will probably get more fanservice than they do from the average shounen-ai. So if you like naughty stuff for girls, there's reason #2 to read it.

The first time i can use Paan
Ecchi for girls? Of course it is. I enjoy this one pretty much.
Now to the main idea, what is Paan? In my country, Paan is a kind of dish that you do not swallow that mean no matter how much you eat you will never be full. Why i relate this manga with Paan? Because if sex is a kind of food then to some point you will get full. This manga is Paan where you never get full of, unlike other series. That is it bright spot.
P/s: Be careful, you may lose lots lots of blood.
I love the artwork in this manga, especially the semi-chaotic aspect of it.
As a fan of yaoi and cute ephemeral guys, I find the BL aspect to be quite pleasing.
But to me this manga also contains a horror aspect. There is something horribly twisted about Shiro's former organization. Nightmarish (though not as sick as Berserk, I suppose).
But gorgeous art and delicious bishies
Firstly, I started reading this because of the beautiful artwork. It's a bit over the top, but also extremely rich and dream-like. The world in which this takes place is full of amazing things and beautiful costuming. Underneath all that is a lot of humor, sometimes blatant and more often somewhat dry. There is definitely a story evolving in there somewhere, but it is slow to come together. Because we've only gotten a small piece of what is truly going on, it's hard to say whether the story is going to be great, or if it will fizzle and flounder as time goes on. It may just be an elaborate carrier for a ton of fanservice(which, I admit, is even a bit much for me...and I am a huge fan of BL), but hopefully we will get the chance to see for ourselves.
I want to order a copy of this manga. Even though I can't read Japanese well. Because it's just so damn beautiful and sexy, the art. Amazing. Seriously, this manga makes me horny even though there is no porn. It's just so... sensual.
A treat to any fans of bromance (and the characters are awesome, really cute and likeable <3 ). The manga is funny and fresh. I recommend.
EDIT; after 3 volumes I have to lower my vote. The manga is episodic, the stories are rather short, the secondary characters usually don't appear again (so far) and I just can't care about the solution of the mysteries... I only care about the relationship between Shiro and Kojiro that develops with every episode-- this seems to be the only point of telling those stories that don't lead anywhere (it seems). There are many young beautiful females in the stories (well, it's shoujo), almost every one centers around some, but I don't even remember their names and they look pretty much the same besides slightly different hair styles. It's also kinda ridiculous how Shiro gets involved in almost every case (gets kidnapped, becomes friends with the criminalist, etc etc)
I hope I don't sound too mean... I still enjoy this manga and plan to follow it. The art is stunning, the characters are such eye candies, and I love the main ones (Shiro and Kojiro). It's funny, too The manga is 6 volumes long and ongoing, so my vote may change again. Hopefully I will raise my rating again

ahahaha this manga is HILARIOUS and the plot is GENIUS! the art is so pretty and so are the main characters. I love that there are so much hints of BL here and there XDD makes me frustrated that there is still no action between Shiro and Kojirou but at the same time I love the hints here and there XDDD they should def have sex! but at the same time it would remove the lil kick the writer has been providing us :--D so right now I'm just so confused whose mind screams yes sex but at the same time NOO! XD Keep it up Tsukiji-sensei! Fighting~!
I really like the straight-forward Kojiro... he is sooo sweet and understanding to shiro.. i like the part where he always risk his life for shiro and shiro reprimand him because he thinks he is not worth it, but then Kojiro answers back to shiro that he will regret it for the rest of his life.. the plot and art is a 10 for me... please translate this manga please... i really love this series...
