In a city where the law has been rendered non-existent, Yuki and his best friend Tetsu break into the offices of the Seidoukai to steal in a desperate attempt to finance his ailing brother's hospital bills.

Yuki accepts without hesitation and in order to keep his end of the deal, starts paying Hyodo the visits he asked for...

After reading chap 1, I stopped.

DP released the first chapter, I read it and I decided I should stop. I stopped reading the manga after chapter 1 mainly because I have this ominous feeling that this manga will be full of heartaches, betrayal ~the usual heavy stuff. I think I couldn't handle that especially if the manga is still ongoing. However because another story namely Sora o Daite Oyasumi caught my attention, I found out that both are works of Kyuugou-sensei. So here I am, reading this manga again. TT_TT it just gives you all these emotions.
As the other reviewers said, the main ingredient of this mangaka is indeed dark stuff, which i found highly admirable considering that only a FEW mangaka can use that element and are brave enough to show something akin to RL. These mangaka who uses psych in their manga are smart smile I just hope that she would make her stories all 'happily-ever-after'
If given a chance i would really love to meet this awesome mangaka.

It just made me sad and depressed for not reading chapter 18 and the rest. Though, I still consider myself patient on waiting for this series to be updated. One of the best shounen-ai/yaoi mangas I've ever read. Kyuugou-sensei's works really can catch up my interest 'cause they are unique on their own. smile

I was so into the story with this one. I really felt with the characters and what they had to go through. They're all well developed, the art is fantastic, and the story still has a lot of potential, I can't wait to read more of it!
One of the best manga's in the shounen ai/yaoi style EVER!

An absolute must for those who like depth and emotion in relationships, not just the sex stuff. One thing though, it's quite heavy, but you get that already if you look at the categories of this series. i thought it was great.

Oh, and I agree with Zhenis on the 'rape' issue. Finally a character who reacts like one should when faced with such situations. In other stories they always seem to just forget about it or even like it, it's just not believable like that.

I'm not a person who usually reads shonen-ai or yaoi, but this one in particular really made me stop and look. The art was absolutely beautiful and the drama and plot was fascinating. It's definitely a level higher than most yaoi and shoujo manga I've read, especially on the issue of love and rape. (If you haven't noticed most yaoi and smutty shoujo, the main character is, "no i dont want to have sex," and the person is, "oh yeah u do"). If its rape, its rape. I like the depth of the characters too. They are very human, and it breaks my heart to see what they have to go through. Excellent manga.

Pretty amazing

Wow, this is one amazing read. Being a long-time lover of BL when I first read the description, I was expecting the same old stuff (it was only by the grace of seeing Kyuugou's name as the mangaka that kept me going), but this is quite dark and deep. The art is beautiful - it's simple, but that simplicity makes it pretty amazing. The story itself is not particularly new, but the way Kyuugou handles this blows other such storylines out of the water. The characters are my favorite part of this story. Yuki and co. are so human that it's heartbreaking to see what they go through, and you definitely connect with what each character feels. This manga stayed with me so long after, that every single BL (actually manga in general) paled in comparison. I love Kyuugou and all of her (his?) works, and this one, I personally think, is her best. The only con - releases aren't too fast (*sigh).

EDIT: Had to add this after I saw the above two reviews (had a mini celebration in my head after realizing that I wasn't the only one who completely hated rape in bl) - read all of Kyuugou's other works if you want to see rape treated as rape. Most of her other stuff is dark, but they're great reads that delve into the darker side of the human psyche.

Even though I normally wait longer to make a comment until more chapters are out, I love this manga and think it shows potential. Kyuugou is an amazing artist it's a shame he releases so irregularly, i though there would never be a Vol.2.

This manga is great! I love love love the art and I love the relationships between each of the characters. They're complicated. Plus I love the background to Yuki. I actually don't know who Yuki will end up with (if anyone at all) which is nice because its sooo not predictable. smile I wish there were more chapters!

Kyuugou has created some of my favorite Manga and definitely ranks in my top 3 of favorite Mangaka. When I first saw Acid Town I knew I was in love. The characters in it are beautiful and broken in such a delightfully interesting way. I have absolutely no complaints other than the slow updates.

I liked sensei's work, so I gave this one a shot, as so far so good. I can't say the plot is really original, but it still seems like it'll be a good read.

Update: I've seen the raws for later chapters, and it looks like it'll be real good. Lot's of drama.

@ nana - the status is 1 volume (ongoing) so I imagine it'll have at least 2 volumes.

hey, Acid town isn't finish, is it? The story looks cool and I'd like to see how it ends... oh, but Kyuugou normally makes one-shots... ò.ó maybe is like "let's annoy readers leaving the story unfinished" or maybe like some authors that take so much time to finish their stories... Uah... I'm raving, sorry ^^' Well, someone knows something 'bout chapter two?? Thanx so much!! biggrin
