My favorite BL series. Anyone who thinks this is typical and cliched isn't paying attention to what they're reading. Sure, the first volume doesn't really come together as a story since it was only intended as one shots at that point. A story arc and character development truly begin in volume 2 in a flashback story arc that is background for the current Naked Truth arc begun in volume 3. And the characters in this one are the most memorable I've read in BL. Asami, a typical cool potent(!) emotionless seme, or is he? Turns out there's more to him than meets the eye. Feilong, typical evil Chinese triad leader....Not. His fascinating character could keep psychologists arguing for ages about his motivations and goals and psyche. Takaba Akihito, the young journalist uke who is put upon by both of these men... Not your typical uke. He is the spirit of the series and the glue that holds it together, fighting for what he cares for, and he comes to care for Asami.

This is just a wonderful romance, and action story, and I encourage all lovers of such to read it.

Since this just finished, I'll add an addendum. This isn't a series to be read by people who only skim the surface of a manga. You have to watch the graphics and read and think about what the characters are really thinking, what they really mean. Yamane tells what Asami means through his eyes and actions, and very rarely when she gives us his thoughts; he's a deep player. But if you read closely you can see that she plotted his downfall to Takaba from almost the beginning, his obsession turning to caring and something more, right under his nose. It's no sudden change of character. It's a gradual revelation.

Takaba is different, yet the same. His personality is open and honest about everything, except his relationship with Asami. Like Asami, he hides it from himself, yet it's apparent to a closereading audience what he's feeling.

Their relationship is by its very nature hidden from plain view. Yamane drew it that way. We're seeing them as they see each other and themselves. It's a masterful use of POV. But unlike them we can dig for the clues she leaves to understand the real story that she's telling. We get to glimpse the naked truth before they themselves realize it.

This is a book I recommend to those who don't need things spelled out to them, and who like to ponder the subtext to get at the truth of what a piece is really saying.

A very hot and sexy yaoi manga with a lot of class. A little hardcore, but well worth the read.

Re-edit: Recent chapters, especially after the HK arc, has been quite a disappointment to me. The story just kept dragging on and on and I'm just hanging on to each chapter in the hopes that better plot will crop up. But no... Interesting and intriguing as it is, YA has left out the essence of character development, and I meant side characters by that.

The latest few chapters had a lot of issues and new stuffs thrown in. But as things wrapped up, so many are left unresolved. Even the main characters felt underdeveloped as it nears its end. Fei Long, who was once the dangerous yet graceful dragon is one example whose story has been left hanging.

Other characters could have been developed more. I might be biased because I'm a fan of Mikhail. But those aside, I just felt the plot wasn't built up enough. YA has many wonderful ideas, but she just failed to pull them all together. It could have been an awesome manga, but the latter half just left me dissatisfied...

Maybe I should try rereading the series as a whole instead of just in chapters...

What can I say that hasn't already. Finder series is by far the best manga I've read. It has everything, a well woven plot, beautiful art, steaming sex scenes, that always, at the end of every chapter leaves you pulling your hair for more. By now, I think most Yaoi readers have recognized Ayano Yamane sensei as one of the most talented yaoi artist out there... there is a good reason why.

Very Hard yaoi (for the first story at least), with shocking rape scenes. The scenario is good, but it becomes a bit too circumvoluted at times. The drawing, though, is all good ^^

I uploaded most of the info on this page, so if anything is not acurate / clear, please do tell me.
