I did enjoy this story, but there were moments when I wanted to stop. The only times I wanted to stop were when Hakuron became WAY too possessive over Kurumi and forced sex on her all the time. It's like her whole day was devoted to her practically being raped by Hakuron. I still don't understand why he woul forcefully have sex with her, when he cared about a lot. Luckily, she had a memory problem so she forgot about what Hakuron did and their relationship turned back to normal, back to how it used to be before sex every day. I did cry my eyes out at the end though for they were about to be married when something happened. And, Kurumi and Hakuron's relationship was really good, but then someone had to interfere in their lives to seek revenge for what Hakuron did to Kurumi. I wish the ending weren't as depressing and I wish Hakuron wasn't so possessive or else I would really love this manga. But, I do still enjoy reading it.

At first i thought hey the plot line is good, and it is progressing ok, but then man it was rushed. Also who rapes the somone you love continuously? I was so shocked, probably was one of the shocking experiences ever, this is what you call horror in normal life without gore.

Why can't we give 0 to a manga? Because this shit don't even deserve 1. I read other Shinjo Mayu but this one I can't, it's awful. The girl have no personnalities, Hakuron is a bastard who think he could do anything we want because he is handsome (well not my type) and in mafia. The story is all about rape, violence, humiliation, then a fucking fairy tale. A "she will like sex so then she will love me" logic and then he is a prince come be true by the end, it's all shit. The WORST!

This is a hit or miss kind of manga, either you'll love it or you'll hate it. What can I say? I have a thing for Mayu Shinjo, an embarrassing weakness if you want. And from all I've read from her, which is quite a lot, I think this is Shinjo at her best. Yeah, it's melodramatic and has lots of clichés, but it really touch me, I kind of cry too. And it wasn't because of the ending, but because of how their relationship turned in one point. Maybe I was heartbroken and more sensible. I don't know, I just know I've read it more than once. I couldn't stop reading it, I can get tired of Shinjo sometimes, but with this one, I just couldn't stop reading!

So, if you are a Shinjo fan or have a thing for her work like me, you'll probably love it. If you are a newbie, there's a chance you'll love it too. If you hate her other work, forget it, this is not for you, don't even try it! It's hard to give it a rating. The art is really good, I like this type of bad boys mangas, and I really think this one it's her best one. Yeah, it's disturbing and what not, but I live dark mangas and angst once in a while. It's not for everyone, if you take things too seriously, don't read it. It's just a manga for me, another story, I enjoyed it and I just let it be.

Everytime I want to read something trashy, I entertain myself by reading Shinjo Mayu's works. I thought that "Love Celeb" is her worst work but this manga has totally changed my mind. This was downright horrible, painful and disgusting to read.

I mean, the guy's the WORST rapist in all of her stories! Am I supposed to accept him as a "romantic" lead? AS IF. This is absolutely SICK. I am not at all convinced by their "love" with each other!

What bothered me the most is that this bastard even have the balls to go to a proper church wedding and marry his victim. THE HELL?!

I rejoiced though when the mangaka killed him in the end! But I'm pretty sure that the female lead (whose IQ is lower than a rabbit) is probably gonna get raped by the rest of the mafia. That cycle never ends.

At first I thought it was okay. I mean it wasn't boring and stupid, but slowly it got really pathetic and disturbing. I can handle sex scenes... ONLY if it is out of love! I don't really like rape and in this manga there was a lot! I couldn't handle it and dropped it. I only got to like chapter 24 and I didn't want to read the whole thing because of how bad it was. If you like weak girls who get raped often then be my guest and read this but remember I warned you.

Typical Shinjo Mayu plot. Corny and overexagerated but somehow I read it anyway like I read all of her stuff (whyyyy? I cant tell if I like it or hate it! lol) She does try to get out of her typical plot a bit with the tragedy and the overuse of blood. Very smutty, even for shinjo mayu. If you dont like that then dont read it, if you do this will be full of it so go for it!

The 2 main characters fall in love instantly for pretty much no reason. And then they have way too many problems that dont even matter (and some that kinda do i guess lol) then they keep doubting each other and then saying they wont doubt. Hate then love. "im afraid of you and hate you" "now i love you and trust you" every other chapter is love/hate. its anoying. both the main characters are really really stupid. They both wont be honest with themselves or others, and dont tell each other about things that are really really important and would make all the difference. its way too overdramatic and the main girl expecially cant commit to a single decision to save her life.

also its one of those cliche everyone falls in love with the main girl and they all want her for some reason even though she has like no redeming qualities.

Yet I read it, twice. -_-

Readers here is the list on what to expect when you read any of Mayu Shinjo's manga including this one:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1. Weak female lead who gets rape by either the main lead or other guys.
2.Forceful male lead whose lust is way over the top to the point of raping the girl he claim to love.
3.There's absolutely no character growth for both leads. The only thing that will grow is their sexual relationship.
4. Repetitive scenes. Ex. Girl gets kidnap or abuse every chapter.
5.Cliche situations... Ex. Kidnap, amnesia, suicide, betrayal and many more. Kudos to Shinjo Mayu for her expertise!
6. Last but not the least most of her works have happy endings with the exception of course of haou airen. Kudos to her for killing the biggest bastard in this story.


Overall Shinjo Mayu's work can't be taken seriously so just treat it as if your reading a light hentai manga.

*The art was good so I gave this manga a #2 rating.

It took me a long (long...) time to read this because it seemed every time kurumi and hakuron's relationship got a bit “normal” someone would come along and screw it up but in the end I finally read it and even now I occasionally reread my favorite parts and think about it a bit. I cried a lot in this and will I actually like crying it got old sometimes. A little too sad.
But all in all I liked it in a very sadistic way. It did in fact live up to a TRUE tragedy even if the characters were pretty dumb in how the fell head over heals in love so quick but I mean IT IS a shinjo mayu manga. It is one of my favorite tragedies and a favorite of mayu's works.
I wouldn't recommend this for the faint of heart its sad and pretty much shuts your anticipation for a happy ending only to leave you thinking 'wtf just happened?' in the end.
