Good but kind of overrated

Beautifully twisted and dark characters. There were times when I don't know what was going on because there were too much happening but it still comes out as understandable. I would say that his manga brought me to some really dark psychological sh** and I love it. One problem is, the plot is kind of bland. I feel like they just want us to experience the twisted personalities of the charcters. The story itself was nothing to be hyped about. I'll probably just remember this manga as something disturbing with random plots lol.

Unless you accept that these guys have a screw (or more) loose, the plot seems absurd. Their encounter could have been the beginning of a sweet relationship, but instead it's the beginning of a mess. Did things really need to turn out that way? I can't help asking myself this question, it's a bit painful.

It seems like I missed important details (even if I got insights from some of the comments as well) so I would like to re-read it someday and ponder over this intricate relationship. This is definitely not an easy read.

I knew I'd love this one as soon as he opened the trunk with the dead woman inside. Double Mints boasts a dark and gritty story revolving around two eccentric personas. There's a bit of a power play going on between the two MCs and as the story goes on you have to wonder which one holds more influence over the other.

There's a lot more going on behind the master-slave relationship and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a story with a psychological aspect behind it. The story has a nice flow to it and it never falls victim to stagnancy. The art's different- some may not like it, but personally I loved it.

This one is one of my most favorite that I've ever read!
Some people might think it's really GROSS, STRANGE, TOO MUCH to read. I agree with that.
But for me, it's NOT at all.
If you want to read, you have to prepare yourself into a VERY DARK theme, STRANGE characters, and GROSS acts of them.
Besides, if you are getting into it too much, you will see how beautiful it is.
It's really a tough story. Very ANGST.
I don't know how to describe it, but believe me, Double Mints can make you fall in love with every pages, plot and the characters!
I love this manga so much that I ordered the Japanese book right after I read it.
And, DMG licensed. I hope it will be the paperback, not only the NOOKbook TTvTT

I just couldn't get into this one. The characters were poorly constructed--at least the blond one was. Usually I love Nakamura Asumiko but this is definitely not one of her best works, IMO.

This manga will definitely be one I'll be reading over and over. Unlike the usual fluffy stories on puppy love, this revolves around trust and belief that they will always be there for each other.

The first thing that captivated me of this manga was their eyes. Something so dark yet pulling are in both of their eyes, and I understand what Mitsuo meant when "He murdered me with his eyes"

The intricately deformed relationship doesn't seem as ideal as some readers think - but there's a lot more hidden under all the apparent humiliation and hate. Despite the warped personalities and horrifying feats, in truth, they care for each other, much more than a simple dog-owner relationship, in my opinion. Strongly recommended, although it may be for more of the eccentric tastes.

Not my favorite by Nakamura Asumiko, but definitly one of her best. I liked that the whole concept was so unusual, definitly something Nakamura specialize in.
The art is stunning, the story was deep and well thought and the characters were very original.
I haven´t read something quite like it to be honest.

A dark and beautiful tale

I love this author's works.. she is great developing characters and story telling.
Personally I loved this- its dark and touches on serious issues, so some will not like this.
The two character's relationship is beautiful and sad. The way they are entwined together by their names and past signifies the deep bond they have. Another thing i liked was how the 'master' was the uke. Anyways, some parts were cruel in the beginning, and warped, but it is what made this a great psychological read.

This has been one of my favorites since I first read it. I love every part of it. I would be a very happy girl if this were to be licensed. I also quite enjoyed the oneshot.

The whole thing is quite dark. Never cheesy and somehow manages to avoid feeling contrived even though the story veers in to territory where it is very easy to slip over that line. Wonderful story telling and extremely artful illustration. This is very clearly not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but it is brilliant as far as I'm concerned.

An exceedingly dark story that isn't quite so dark once you get over it. You think about it after you finish it. And maybe you'll read it again like I did.

We have two protagonists: Mitsuo and Mitsuo, both with different names, but their personalities couldn't be any different. The mangaka does wonders with this setting - more than dark, their motives aren't the pure love or anything of the sort that makes boys love ridiculous. Their continuing reliance on one another is astounding. Their history, even more so.

It's a brilliant read, sex isn't just sex for the sake of it - there's plot to it, and the entire story, long after you finish it, leaves you think about it. Though I would've liked to see more, having only one volume is an excellent move for keeping us enthralled in this story that's not too long and loses itself, but not too short and doesn't leave us with enough.
