I love this manga but I can totally understand people who dislike it but why criticize the people who do dig it. I think as long as the subject matter doesn't dip into pedophilia or chicken erotica it's all good. A lot of people bash this freak over the more hardcore elements especially the rape aspect, and feel the need to bash those who really enjoy it. It's the same reaction to the shades of grey (although that's some bullshit writing there!!) trilogy: but just cause u don't understand the interest don't be a dick about it. A lot of people whould bash you for reading yaoi in the first place. I personally like these themes and admit readily that I'm sexually weird. I've been raped for real and it is really bad but I really love "sexy yaoi rape", probably there's some deep psychological reasoning to this but since my choice of reading isn't hurting anyone I don't feel bad indulging. One reason I like yaoi besides the thrilling taboo aspect is because the uke is the female element to me in the story but I can read it without my usual "feminist angst" I'm afflicted by when reading a story with an actual woman. Also female characters with these kind of story lines usually spend multiple pages struggling with their own feminine angst which is boring. Maybe I would dig a hetro story with the same plot if I could suspend my own feminism and if the character did as well. That's my reasoning for yaoi, basically smutty perversions without the guilt (a long with my basic love of taboo subjects [not involving kids or chickens])but everybody is different. I really don't like shotacon (disturbing on so many levels) but I do try not to diss those who like it even though I wonder why anyone not affiliated with NAMBLA would want to read something that pedophiles read. (a passive aggressive diss!) SO feel free to diss this manga but try to hold off on the personal attacks because there are plenty of people condemning you to the fiery pits of hell for even having a passive interest in this homo'rific comic genre!!

I think Ayano Yamane's art style is probably the best in the whole yaoi world. But her characters/plot are just ridiculous. The humor makes up for the undercurrent of really crappy things that always happen to the ukes in her stories. Crimson Spell was no different--probably worse--but Viewfinder's sense of 'romance' is hard to justify when you've got things like rape, bdsm, forced threesomes and kidnap & torture going on--things that would normally have you running to the cops, not to the rapist in question for help! (lol & facepalm). The only other yaoi that offended my sensibilities more was Okane Ga Nai! >_< But, all negativity aside, Asami IS probably the hottest seme short of Iason Mink from AnK (another Stockholm mess--but justified cuz the uke in that story's world/timeline had no rights and was hardly considered a person, unlike Takaba, who DOESN'T live in such a depressing futuristic setting). I give Viewfinder 8/10. I love it cuz it's a long read and a lengthy series (I hate oneshots), but it would have got an 8.5 from me if it hadn't been for Feilong's involvement (especially during the hot spring chapter). I hope the rest of the series takes Asami & Takaba's relationship more seriously in future chapters, and stops treating Takaba like an outlet for sadistic hentai garbage.

I surprise that is why so many fangirls/fanboys like this series many, it's so extremely hot, Asami was so handsome, the best seme i like the most in yaoi world....and so the story gets more and more interesting.

Why did this get 10s and why so man readers actually even read it? I have no darn clue whatsoever.

It's full of rape, probably the smuttiest yaoi out there, and not just that, it has BDSM, Sex toys, and all kinds of stuff that would normally mindfuck you, and the fact that there are people who actually read this, and there's 8 pages full of comments, and all of them from females no less, makes it even more disturbing, i can't believe people read stuff like this, in my whole life as a yaoi reader, i haven't been this aware of my own creepy fandom, and the content in this one is just...i haven't read shit like this in even the most hardcore BDSM rape HENTAI manga ever, and when i saw masculine guys, i mean THOUGH guys, guys that you'd think would be the seme...get raped and act like a sissy girl who just got her ass molested with a fist, i tried to pop out my damn eyes out, it's like you stabbed me with a fork right in the brains, i don't know what to say, this was plain terrible, and i just realized why people actually hate most yaoi fangirls, and damn glad i'm not one of those "most".

You can't get better that this, just don't don't...
the art (OMG the ART!!!),

even the personalities of the characters!!(OMG AKIHITOOO!!! the best uke ever!! he stands up for himself and i LOVE IT!),
it's all done soo well that u will feel that u are in yaoi HEAVEN!
This was my first yaoi, and i'm so thankful that it was this one, and no other crap-just-smut-thing, cause once you've seem a A+ you can recognize other A+ on the infinite manga list that exist in this planet LOL
This is the best.. just that... in short: This is how a yaoi manga should be done.

I was really enjoying this.
The two main characters were really good together and the plot was quite good too. But one thing I really hate in manga is when the main character is forced into sex with somebody else (other than the other main lead he is intended for) it's a real turn-off and it got worse later on in the manga and was looking like he was just going to become that other guys slave which was totally un-sexy, I couldn't stand it anymore, it lost its hotness - how am I supposed to enjoy the romance between the main two characters when he keeps getting used by someone else?
Sorry but no. I had to ditch it in the end. Soo disappointed, it had lots of potential.

I didn't like this when I first started reading it. Yes, it has BEAUTIFUL art and interesting characters... but all the damn rape and freaky sex was a huge turn off. But I kept reading... I got used to the random sex and started to like the characters and their relationship (for the most part). Until...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The threesome with Feilong. Like what the fuck? Isn't Asami supposed to be possessive?
It completely pissed me off. I'm not sure I'll ever finish this. It just got too ridiculous.
This review probably isn't very helpful. Honestly, I just wanted to vent my anger.

A Sexplosion Of Erotic Proportions.   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
by CurlyJoe
April 1st, 2012, 6:16pm
Plot 8.5/10
Art 9/10
Romance 8/10
Eroticism 9.8/10

This is a manga that every yaoi fan has to read. I only read oneshots, and I adore this one. I actually am loving the plot, and the sex is graphic enough to be enjoyed (also frequent enough to please me). The uke is masculine enough not to creep me out (I don't read ones with what look like boys under 16), and the bishounen are divine. Read it. Love it. Have sweaty dreams about it.

P.S.: Be prepared for rape, almost all of the sex is either rape, or a little forced. If you hate Stockholm syndrome type romances (Raped until he likes it), then this won't be for you!

PPS: The threesome scene...is more than I could ever ask for. *o*

Oh and BTW: Who ACTUALLY reads Yaoi for the plot?!?! Go read a novel for god's sake, as this stuff is for kinky sex and basically porn.

GREAT...if it's your thing

Here's the thing. If you like the traditional spunky, resisting uke, and the strong, sultry, forceful seme...this is YOUR manga. This series defines those roles and takes it to a beyond perfect level.

But if you're looking for a serious, realistic, angst-ridden drama that flowers into a beautiful and meaningful relationship that comments on the human experience...well, I don't know if this is for you.

Ayano Yamane is brilliant not only in her art (my FAVORITE style...gorgeous), but in her ability to create these endearing characters that we come to care about. Yes, there is a lot of rape. Yes, some of the plot is contrived and unrealistic. But it's a fast-paced, mafia vs. yakuza story with an irresistible uke caught in the middle. If that sounds even a little appealing, you will LOVE this series.

It's a classic.
