Upon his father's death, Akihito Kuze became a viscount at the age of 10. His smart, handsome young butler Tomoyuki Katsuragi has since managed all affairs pertaining to the viscountcy perfectly.
The talented and charismatic Katsuragi is very popular in their social circle; but as Akihito grows older, he becomes colder and more distant by the day - though still as faithful to the Kuze household as he has ever been.

Akihito is now a young man, and desperately in love with Tomoyuki. He determines to discover the reason behind his butler's inexplicable behaviour, and this is where their story begins...

i'm addicted to this

more chapters can't come out soon enough!

but really the history and political intrigue in this is spot on and super realistic, in turn making the angst and star-crossed-ness of the romantic angle even more poignant and gripping. at the same time i love how the barrier between the two characters is not, in fact, their difference in rank itself. it's their own selves and how each of them deal with their difference in rank that separates them. akihito in all his desperation seems to be willing now to burn and build every bridge necessary to get to katsuragi, and you can feel katsuragi's trepidation in watching akihito act so directly in the midst of all the politics around them and not being able to do much about it. it's a careful, dangerous, and very sexy dance they make.

hidaka shouko, you've done it again.

The plot is really gripping. Serious drama... It's so tense at times, and the role of social status is played out well. It actually makes me anxious about how things are going to play out when the confines of rank are so stringent (dare I say it's realistic?) This is a great historical manga, and the flow of the story is so addictive... not to mention the yaoi part. Haha, add that in, and it's like, ten times better XD Akihito and Katsuragai are great characters- I want to read more about them! I wish more chapters were scanlated, I would read them in a heartbeat.

A Classic

More than a classic, actually. A masterpiece would be the better term. Hidaka Shoko's work never disappoints me, but Yuutsu Na Asa is something special. Hidaka's always been very subtle with feelings and emotions, and that just makes sudden outbursts so much more powerful. It's got my heart throbbing from the beginning to the end. This is real angst, not your typically jealousy blushy high school drama. Great plot, excellent characterization, fantastical art, highly recommended.

What a lovely piece of historical romance

Gosh, I think I found another good Edo periodic romance yaoi story. This can very well rival Sakura-gari. I simply adore the tensions between love and loyalties between the two main characters in this story. I do think this is Hidaka Shoko's best work so far.

really... i'm so captive by Hidaka-sensei's work. I'm hunting all her works and read it straight way. Instanly,,and can't be helped, I'm in love with the this story flowing. I know what's Kuze feeling... is choking me and kill me slowly...

Very good works for people who search a good manga.

Dont you just want to kill a baby waiting for a next scanlated chapter? It's right, this is DRAMA, and not exaggerated, teen drama of an uke wondering how the seme feels for him while picking flower petals. It's MEN. Men's conversation. Men's thinking. Men's shape. Pretty, but no the-uke-looks-like-a girl-with-dick type of pretty. If you've gone bored with your whiny uke blushed miserably whenever his seme played basketball (or something like that), and cried dramatically while he was humped in the bed, then try this.
But again if you basically want to read porn with simple plot, don't read this.

Yeah yeah I'm a heartless bastard, but when Akihito (semi)raped Katsuragi for the first time I felt a sick sense of victory. It's like "Yeah, yeah do it! The cold bitch needs some lesson!"
It's not that I hate Katsuragi though, but he makes me DEPRESSED. (just like the title)

anyway, mangatraders have it till vol 8 the last time I saw

WOW now THIS is DRAMA!!!! And not in the conventional, over the top sense, but more of a psychological drama than anything else. The master/servant relationship is played out excellently and the status structure that comes with such a relationship used to full advantage. Indeed, much of the drama comes through in the intensity of the dialogues they have with one another, so when reading the raws even you only get half the sense of what is going on... although just by looking at their faces, the intensity of their gazes, the vibes of intensity will just suck you in!!!

From reading the 2 scanlated chapters, and the raws, I can say that perhaps this is one of, if not the, best yaoi master-butler up to date. The way it flows are like the usual Hidaka Shouko; not exactly melodramatic, a little bit tight and choking, and her men are one of the most pleasant, balanced men seen in yaoi, as far as body shapes are concerned. And again, she likes breaking seme-uke expectation..

Well I've only read the one scanlated chapter so far, but Yuutsu no Asa is quite delicious. Great build up, intriguing characters, kickass art (though I wonder again why the hell Kuze is blonde...), an air of mystery, can't wait to read more...
