very-very good yaoi
After this one I have read all scanlated (and even some RAW) manga by Nishida Higashi. I like her style of drawing very much. What about stories - they turn out totally cute, even when they touch upon tough subjects. Tenshi no Uta the most, because it has strong s&m theme in it ^^v
One of the best
Sure, the artwork may not be "OMG" amazing but the storyline? VERY well done. I was amazed at how it was drawn out. You want development? You got it. You want slow time to fall in love? You got it. You want some angst/drama? You got it. There is one chapter that involves rape, which doesn't mind me since I'm twisted like that, but that actually ties in with the plotline.

Oooh, I won't say anything art-wise; hers is one that would be pretty polarizing; either it's too simple, or deliciously minimalist. Viewers beware.
But storyline? They shines. The 2 volume angst is very well-depicted and not annoying, it oozes of both eroticism and blatant nudity, and the ending --one of my teenie weenie critique about Negai Kanae Tamae-- is satisfying. And yay for married oyajis who's completely in love with their wives -- sorta!
The theme itself is pretty much messed up, but most of it is depicted in a sympathetic, matter-of-fact way. Yes, it's messy and the context is creepy, but it's depicted exactly in that way -- messy and creepy.
Though I do love Nishida in general, I love her far more when she decides to break from her yakuza\salarymen formula. So hurray to this enticing, incestual concerto!
Must read... with caution
This is the most graphic and demented I've seen from Nishida's works! Alex... Alex is such a beautiful boy, inside and out. What he goes through with Chris, it makes my heart ache. Chris is a volcano always on the verge of erupting. And when he spews, it's all sex and violence. That makes my heart ache, too.
And Michel, he must be screwed in the head, too, for tolerating those two. XD
Anyhow, this manga heavily portrays how much we are affected by our environment and the people that surround us during growing up. But no matter how harsh it is--who you are, it won't ever die down if you won't let it.
Re: Nishida's artwork, it's simple and clean and even with the older works, those who are meant to be pretty look pretty. Those that are supposed to be beautiful men are beautiful and yet still very masculine.
not bad so far, the art is not super good (in my opinion) though, but the story is quite interesting and I'm already waiting for the next chapter to be released.
