The characters were too warped and sick for my taste. The beginning was too much of a stretch (calling someone out of the blue like that). The storyline was just too gross for me. I know the underlying concept that Nakamura-sensei is alluding to (Aristophanes' speech in Plato's Symposium) and I think it's great that she uses classical literature in her manga but this story just didn't work for me.

P.S. I like manga like Doukyuusei, Hand Which, Loveless, and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Now you can compare my taste buds to yours.

Double Mints is very flowy, in terms of art and story telling. it's strange, but it's not the *sick in the stomach strange* ... it's interesting and touching and definitely deep. if you have an open mind, i highly recommend this one and all of her works.

Omg...
the storyline is dark and emotional filled with angst!
the art is quirky, very clean, and beautiful in its own unique way. I just love it, would totally recommend anyone who wants to read a dark yaoi smile

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So in chp 4, the dark Mitsuo stabs himself after the light one watches a disc of the dark one getting raped. Then he wakes up in the hospital and he tells the light one that's he been reborn and kisses him. Okay. So seeing your "dog" (obviously more than that) see you being raped triggers you to stab yourself. What, you're filled with feelings of shame and embarrassment (of how low you sank) that you can just die (literally)? I'm just amazed at the self-harm that these people go through. They can never do it the easy non-violent way, can they? (then there wouldn't be much of a story)

It's interesting that this chapter starts out with the dark Mitsuo having sex with a prostitute, while the light one watches TV as he leans against the bed they're doing it on. Sort of like overcompensating. . . the dark Mitsuo reaffirms himself that he's still in control and denies the feelings of the light Mitsuo through hetero intercourse (might be a stretch in my thinking). Well like the prostitute said after having sex with the dark Mitsuo, they are a weird pair.


It's an interesting read as with most of her works. The emotions are intense, but restrained - hence the angst and hence the violent and disturbed actions between them. I wish this had a few more chapters (wouldn't mind a prequel that builds up to the reunion).

Not your average yaoi manga. Two men, polar opposites you can say, captured in this unusual tale while having a rather twisted relationship. Is it really love? Or is it just plain lust? I've reread it so many times but I still can't figure it out. But one thing's for sure, they can't live without another. Which really makes it stand out among the other yaoi mangas in the market. Don't expect a lot of sex scenes but do expect to be pulled in by this manga's strange allure. The art is not very appealing to me, thought it was a bit too simple but it is very unique. I don't know if i love it or not but heck, its so poignant and captivating.

Another piece of art from Nakamura Asumiko.. it gets rougher along the story and more serious. I love how the past is shown so the reader gets to understand, a little bit every time, how their relationship is shaped.

The art is unique, which captivated me. I loved the twisted personalities and the angst. There were just a few subject matter in this manga that I just couldn't fall in love with, but if it's your thing, you'll definitely fall in love with this manga.

Wow, I was not gonna even bother, but now I am completely enthralled. It has this exciting edge to it and the art is so unique (not my fav. but so captivating). It may just be because its 4am, but I am totally lost in this magnetic story.
