The uke needs therapy and the seme belongs in jail. I'm all for dark and cruel characters, but this guy doesn't have anything at all to redeem him (not that anything could redeem him for the horrible things that he does) and there is no real explanation as to why he's so abusive and why his personality changes so quickly. The story and characters don't make much sense either. For the record, this is not BDSM. It's flat out abuse and criminal behavior.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The relationship starts out from rape of course. From then the relationship just gets more and more abusive and disgusting. Hatsuki's cousin is rightfully against the relationship after seeing the horrors his cousin has been going though, but completely changes his mind just pages later and realizes obviously Watakabe loves Hatsuki and they can't be without each other. HUH? You don't kidnap and abuse, drug and rape the ones you love! Not even in BL manga.

Hatsuki stands by his man throughout everything, until the end when he finally comes to the realization he has to leave. Yay. Not so fast. He tries to leave after being choked and raped, but is stopped and locked up in chains for days. During that time he seems to change his mind about leaving and only wants to convince Watakabe that he truly loves him. Shockholm sydrome anyone?

The impact of "killing my brother" is lost because most of that part of the story happened in another manga. There is also a sub-plot with his mother that really makes little sense as well.

The story climaxes with evil seme saving stupid uke from some guys trying to beat him up (oh the irony) and they have sweet sex and everything is okay. Disappointing to say the least. You never find anything about the characters at all. I'm used to explaining away horrible behavior in manga, but this isn't even explained.. it's just accepted for what it is. Did Watakabe remain abusive? There is no signs that he's "cured" since there is nothing that happened to possible change his behavior. So many questions. I'm not sure I want to know the answer though.


Obviously love is not always kittens and rainbows and love like this does happen, but at the end of the manga the "love story" between the two isn't portrayed as unhealthy. The seme is magically rehabilitated for some reason and we are just supposed to accept it all. I gave it two stars because I like the mangaka's art. Don't read it otherwise.
