Umm.... It's disturbing. Quite disturbing. But, hey. I was like, whatever. I'll read through it. I stopped at volume 7(?) because I didn't feel like reading the rest at that time. Then, I told myself I'd just wait for the rest to be scanlated, but... the "rest" never was. I mean, somebody might as well finish it. There isn't much left. But I do understand if nobody wants to scanlate it because they can't handle the extreme sex and rape stuff. Lol. Very understandable. I'm not really into the explicit sex scenes but I actually want to see what happens to the really stupid couple in the end. They're a really stupid couple. Or maybe she's just a really stupid girl... whatever. Oh, and all the "love" in this manga is through sex/rape. Mostly rape though. This is a manga pretty much about, yes, what the summary at the top says and sex. There's sex in every chapter in volume four.
Spoiler: In the first(?) chapter of volume four, it is stated that he "had" her many times for three nights in a row. Also that after her first time, there was blood all over her feet. Like, seriously gushing out... disturbing.
I'm waiting for it to be finished before I move from volume (i think) 7. It'll be a pity if it stops now... ^-^;
I guess I'm really tolerant...
But it is really extreme. Don't try it if you can't handle it. Really. DON'T.
A nice warning for all of you thinking about reading it.
One last thing... Shinju Mayu's manga isn't usually this explicit. Kaikan Phrase has a different feel to it, i guess. So does Ai Ore. I like them more. A lot more.

[edit by mod, warning: Possible spoiler]
[edit by mod, Foul language, but I can't say I don't understand why you would]

I... can't begin to explain how I'm feeling

After the whole rape incident in Volume 4, I... don't have any words. I was so disgusted. I actually started crying. It's so wrong. REALLY wrong.

You actually LOVE this girl?

Oh jesus christ...

Fudging girl, go kill yourself. >_> Do us all a favour. Escape from Hakuron's clutches that way, and do us all a favour that way too. Kill 2 birds with one [literally too, if you can manage that] stone. Everyone's happy.

I can't stop shaking after seeing that. After seeing the blood on her legs after the first rape, I literally started pulling my hair and screaming. I can tolerate EXTREME amount of sex, and violence, but that one scene DISTURBED me REALLY bad. Yes, I've seen lots of mangas / movies / hentai where the girl gets gang raped by 5768476048 guys and I can manage to watch through the entire clip without getting disgusted [maybe a "that's so wrong" comment, but I don't get all "OMGWTFDIE"]. I actually watched lots of disturbing videos [you know what I mean >_>] on the interwebz before, but never really flinched at any of them.

But for some reason I can't explain, that... REALLY disturbed me.

I can't stop shaking.

Not all Shinjo manga is this graphic. I actually like Kaikan Phrase.

Just... stay away from this one if you don't enjoy this stuff. -_-

Spoiler (highlight to view)
LOL @ THE ENDING. I literally cracked up.

I'm upping my mark from a 1 to 3 for the ending. xD +1 for Hakuron dying, +1 for it being on the WEDDING, and another +1 for the random character appearance -THE WAY HE DIED - AHAHAHA, EPIC XD. However, I'm deducting one mark for the girl staying alive. Damn.

Total = 3

lolol

Great ending. Thanks, Shinjo xD I still love you for that. <3

P.S.S I was looking through the comments, and I'm completely flabergasted. How are people that, like myself, find this manga disturbing "immature"? Oh, right, because thinking rape + love is like 1+1=3. IT DOESN'T GO TOGETHER. Never does irl, never will.

No one who gets kidnapped & raped lives "happily ever after" with their captor/rapist. And for those that say that Kurumi was willing to the rape... Yea, sure, of course I'd wanna have sex with someone that killed my friend~ In fact, that really turns me on. So cut the BS and get on with reality - WHICH THIS MANGA TOTALLY LACKS.

Kurumi is a retard whom should get shot. You RETURN to your rapist willingly, only to have him rape you some more. Then bitch about not being able to get away. Uh, okay. I just can't add 2 and 2 here.

This story isn't "the best of the best" nor is it "romantic". It's the worst of the worst, unappealing to women, and no way in hell is it romantic. There is no excuse to rape - and Hakuron's excuse to rape her was the stupidest reasoning I've ever read in any manga.

Hakuron was right to die (I mean, that kid did do it because... Get serious, if you saw someone raped in front of your eyes, and then a few months later, the rapee happily walking the streets with her rapist... Uh, WTF?

Overall, this series is fucked anyhow. And anyone who thinks we are immature for disliking it need to get an effing brain and use logic.

The story looked interesting, but as I read on it was nothing but twisted and disturbing. Kurumi is ANYTHING but heroic. How can a girl love someone who not only takes her away from her family, but constantly violates her? HOW CAN THIS BE LOVE? It's beyond me how anyone can call this romance. She absolutely has no self-respect! Also Hakuron, I don't find him 'handsome' at all! A man who loves a woman does not rape her and treats her like some slave..

I haven't read the ending yet, but I'm not planning to because it's way too twisted. If you're looking for a good romance/story, this is definitely not recommended.

What an unfortunate ending.. really sad.

I find this manga really depressing but I still understand the situation by reading the whole story..
It's kinda draggy at beginning and its really sad that the heroine is the most pathetic and some what really naive/clueless.. but its understandable, though... hakuron is agressive and very forceful towards her I think he truely love her... hmmm.. there are lots of misuderstanding going on and also involve alot of people that want to tear them apart...

Also it has the proof that Hakuron really LOVES Kurumi.. he may done it in a demonic way but the feeling of protecting someone is stronger .. though he doesnt want to hurt Kurumi but for her sake he'll be the strongest man that can only protect her even it cost his life... (just like the endling)...

Really shoking story.. but thats how it ends.. at least he left something special for her (KITTEN=CAT)... even they are apart, as long as they think about each other and love each other... that only matters.. I think.... very corny and naive thoughts but it works only in manga world..

How can ANYONE like this manga? What kind of a twisted mind (or lack of a mind entirely) must one have to enjoy such a plot? The heroine is among the most pathetic of her type that I've ever read about (excluding other Shinjo Mayu manga, of course), and the hero may be handsome in some way, but his attitude isn't even remotely attractive.

As to the people who think it's realistic and romantic, I have one thing to tell you: girls who get kidnapped by the mafia and then forced into sex do NOT fall in love with their captor, especially not after knowing them for a few hours. That is not a realistic romance, nor is it even romantic. That's sick and twisted, and I fail to see how anyone could fantasize about such a thing.

this story like all other shinjo mayu manga has a good story but she can't make the magic last. Kurumi is so annoying! Hakuron is a jerk and i find the ending fitting. It irritates me just thinking of how much Kurumi will go through for "love" and how much pain Hakuron put her through

i only read the first 5 volumes of this but it is really twisted. I wanna root for hakuran but then he does stuff that completely repulses me and the female lead isn't super developed she's just kind of there in my mind. why do they love each other so much? I dont get it...I still liked it though. Finished what I had in 1 sitting.

For real... is this story meant for an audience of women?
As a woman, nothing in this appeals to me. The women are all either manipulative bi-atches or submissive wussies.
All the romance is defined by sex...
And almost all the sex is coerced... what the hell?
Since when is rape romantic?
I'm all for a little guilty pleasure, but outright rape and brutalization is not my idea of pleasure.
Why is Kurumi such a push-over? Some heroine...
She has no backbones, no will of her own.
Why does Hakuron love her so much? I don't get it. I REALLY don't.
And speaking of Hakuron... what a jerk! Ewwww... he's nothing but a cute face with a bad attitude. Son-of-a-B kidnaps the woman he loves, humiliates her, cheats on her, gives her away to his buddy (to "protect her") and rapes her so badly she could barely stand.
And yet she STILL LOVES HIM, willingly becomes his mistress after a pathetic show of resistance...pfff

uh... so yea... I don't like this manga...

Spoiler:
I heard they both die at the end...
tsk...a fitting end, I'd say.
