Description
Vol. 1: Kooru Shakunetsu (Freezing Flame)
When Hirose Katsumi discovers that his father's company is in jeopardy as their largest customer, Mimuro, considers moving to other markets, he convinces his father to meet with the heads of Mimuro. Attending the meeting with his father, Katsumi has the unfortunate luck of catching the eye of the heir, Mimuro Yoshitaka. Yoshitaka calls on Katsumi with a deal that will allow the Mimuro Corporation to continue doing business with Katsumi's father. There is one condition, though…Katsumi must put Yoshitaka's needs above all else and do anything requested. With such a tough economy, and so many employees depending on his father's company, Katsumi has no choice but to obey, and begins a life of humiliation as the possession of a cold-hearted Yoshitaka. But, who is actually the one being possessed? And what will Yoshitaka do when his pet learns how to bite back, using manipulative tricks learned from the Mimuro heir to possibly turn the tables? (from Fushichou)

i really like this one... another awesome manga by kanbe akira. after blind love, and love or pride, this one is definitely AWESOME!!! the first couple Katsumi and yoshitaka is definitely an AWESOME couple!... i like the way the story develops into a more complicated and exciting scene. the character development is really good too, and the moment when both of them jump into the ocean... really touch my heart....

The second couple, the prince and the police officer... just read it and still hanging and incomplete... the last chapter that i read for this couple is when the prince is crying... after he bought the police man to slept with him... i really hope this couple ended in happy life.

Still got NO CLUE about the nest story or couple.... will this story change into a new couple againconfused i can only hope that this manga will finish and completely scanned ( ASAP) , the sooner the better... just CAN'T wait!!!

My type of yaoi

Very enjoyable.

I read this when I was just beginning to get into yaoi and I remember loving it, still do. I don't think it's forgettable because I haven't forgotten. This is a guilty pleasure and I like my yaoi with this sort of pleasure. I want to get goosebumps and this did it for me. I recommend smile

I not quite sure about my feelings towards this manga. Bad but.. good? And the art isn't as good as the cover. I like how they are both possessive of each other, but.. the story is predictable and very very normal. The types that you would forget.

Mimuro and Katsumi make a brilliant pair, i have to say. At first i was attracted solely by the art and author, i liked some of the previous works the mangaka produced and decided this seemed interesting from the write up. I was really quite happy with the story biggrin but the characters are really what makes this manga for me. Even the second later pairing, the prince and the police man, that looks fun (why do i also get the feeling that the police man is not going to be content being an uke? XD). Anyway, the story so far enthralled me, i enjoyed it alot, and the continuing story has me hooked and waiting for chapter updates. Great art, good story, amazing characters. 9/10

This was the first yaoi manga that I read and also my favorite. I am not the type to read the abusive mangas, but the way the characters were portrayed makes it seem like the seme just wants the uke's love all to himself. I thoutht this manga was sweet in a way and also very sexy. I have read many yaoi thanks to this manga. I just wish this was published in the United States so I could buy it.

This is pretty much a stereotype; the determined uke, the contract that always have to involve smut and heavy smex, the cold cool powerful seme who just have to get the uke fast....

I can see how it's loved by people, but for me it broke the suspension of disbelief right after the first volume, and my jaw keep dropping after that. Bad writing pretty much sums it all.....this is basically ideas played too much, and this time made a bit too seriously, it becomes quite...annoying instead. Akira Kanbe is no Shushushu Sakurai (or is it the reverse?), nor is she Takashi Kanzaki, and this premise is pretty much romantic camp or empty smut by now, . And all the smut that happens here is the pretty sparkly angsty "I love him I love him I must have him NOOO / YESSSS" kind of thing, despite the context.

and the last time I read similar ones from one of the pairing in volume 4, it has ninja, WIDE LIPS, and a dog named Shoyu.

/sigh

For me it had both sides.
It is a predictable story and there isn't much at first other than sex.
I didn't think the art was so great as said, but that's probably because I was reading another manga with an incredible art right before. So I got used to it...and yeah, it is good after all.

About the plot itself, I like the fact it's forceful sex (it is the kind of thing I like, though). And although we know what's going to happen right from the beginning, some parts really got to me. Firstly because Yocchan couldn't see what was right in front of him: his own feelings. Therefore I expected it to be solved pretty quickly, even before the Prince showed up.

What I like most is the amount of angst it got, because it is one of my top needs.
What I didn't like was too much sex to an extent we got so used to it that I got bored.

Katsumi isn't my type of uke, because his lack of action and attempt to be a righteous man really pisses me off.

But as the main couple is as cute as the side ones, it's okay.

It does have its not so good parts, but I do recommend it!

this is the first story ive read from kanbe sensei..sadly to say this is not my type of story. maybe im on the romantic type side. this one is all about force thingy plot. i don't like the fact that the seme is such an asshole. and uke is kind of stupid passive. but the storyline is okay, the art is decent so i guess oh well.

It started off typical forced sex yaoi situation and then it got different. I like how the uke character realized that he the love he had was of a twisted sort. It got interesting when the uke decided that nothing would take his man away.

I was expected the main love story to end a bit different...but for the characters themselves it was a healing ending.

Overall, it's pretty bois boinking their brains out. Great to look at but don't expect that much plot.
