"this is the story that refuses the existence of women" -kazuma kodaka

hoho..i think that line is really funny. smile this is really good. i found this a while and i refuse to read this since the art really suck (at first) and the plot will be threw at you and will be really confusing. but if you have patience i tell you, its definetly worth it. i've never been this super crazy since junjou romantica. and personally speaking, i think this better than haru wo deitita?(its that correct?) oh, i really like the hitman side story.

anyway, don't regret it if you miss this out!

At first the author just throws you right into the plot, but don't worry everything unfolds soon and once it does it gets REALLY GOOD : ) Definitely a must read for yaoi lovers AND an actual interesting plot line!!

This is what yaoi fans would call Porn WITH plot =3~ the plot is really intriguing and so Kizuna is one of my top favs~ the relationship between Ran and Kei's really sweet, and so is *spoiler warning* the relationship between Masa and Kai =3~ i can't wait to see it finished ^^~ ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

This is a series that you won't find on the internet, but its worth reading if you are lucky enough to find it in stores. Be Beautiful Publishing's downfall made this series (especially volumes 6 & 7) hard to find. Volumes 6 & 7 can be sold on amazon or e-bay for around 100$, making those parts of the story inaccessible to most people.

Aside from problems in distribution, this is a very good series. The characters are realistic, fun, and well developed. This series does feature a car accident, witch seems to be one of the biggest threats to Gay Japaneses Men (see examples in Selfish Love, Gravitation, Dear Myself, Sweet Revolution, and Lovely Sick).

The relationship between Ranmaru and Kei is a very strong one and is very romantic. The problems they encounter only help the reader understand how devoted they are to each other. Both main characters are strong, athletic, manly type men. The involvement of the Yakuza (and resulting gang violence) provide this series with some gore and suspense.

All around, I believe that this is a well balanced series that has strong main characters with a very strong romantic relationship. The sex is pretty hot as well.
