Really.. I've long forgotten the feeling of being excited over reading something... And then came Saezuru. I know it's cliche but i have so many going on inside me when reading this that I didn't know i still had those feelings... It's crazy.

I dare say Yoneda-sensei IS the best yaoi author without any exaggeration. I became interested in yaoi thanks to her and every time I feel devastated by how bad yaois are out there I just read her works and feel hope again!

I think Saezuru may be her bwest work..and I really hope that after her hiatus she is going to continue this amazing story!

Another Gold Std in Yakuza Yaoi

I think this manga can definitely hold its own candle against Ayane Yamano's Finder series when it comes to Yakuza yaoi. The drawing of the characters might not be as pretty and the sex scenes are not as smutty but the story line is amazingly good. The psychological undertones behind the characters of Yashiro x Doumeiki are very fascinating - both souls are broken in their own way. Can the fact that both live & work in the violent world of crime syndications actually save their souls & bring them some happiness? I am enthralled as I await each installment of this story. I would definitely recommend any BL publisher to license this. It is a big winner.

This manga is ridiculously good. I have always loved the gritty characters and subject matter that Yoneda Kou comes up with, but THIS manga in particular is just gorgeous. I love how she makes the reader work to figure out what the characters are thinking, because the two leads are so expressionless on the outside but you can tell the inside is in such tumult. The way Yoneda organizes the manga and the order in which she delivers information is flawless.

Long story short: read this manga if you love in-depth and intelligent stories!

I don't know what to say... it's so suffocating, every time I read this manga my heart beats faster and sometimes I even cry 'cause I pity Yashiro. His character is so melancholy lonely I can't help but feel sorry for him. I hope he finally finds happiness.

Now this is the kind of yaoi and storyline i like smile
Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai has a good amount of smut and i love how the two main characters, do in fact, have some kind of strong connection towards eachother. Yashiro is a really good developed character in the series and he's one of my favorite's because of his personality and everything he has been through makes him likeable (for me anyways). As for Chikara,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
YES please be NON impotent, i can't wait until that chapter comes out so i can see how yashiro would react XD

This is one of my favorite yaoi's and it deserves to be known. ^^
Highly Recommended. smile

It's hard to describe this series. It's complicated. Suffice it to say that, if you can take the unabashed kinkiness which our main character Yashiro comes with, take-it-or-leave-it-thank-you, you'll likely be mystified with how good this story is. There is wonderful depth of emotion, playfulness, the pain, and sparse prettiness infused in every line of this BL manga. Not to mention, the scanlators did a damn good job with it. Bravo!

This is a manga that won't tell you everything about yakuza but it is hard-hitting and deep. It stuck in my mind for quite a while.... In fact, I might have fallen in love with it. O: Now, try it out for yourself!

NB: Do not miss out on the prequels--they will show the humongous amount of thought that went into this character's story.

i just started reading this series as a whole (including the 2 prequels) and it left me wanting more. the characters are introduced in the prequels and this story is a great continuation to the introductions. its not the common yakuza story biggrin it is alluring because of the characters, and remains captivating by the drama and twists in events

truly a must read biggrin

Just awesome, not your average YAOI characters. This manga characters have depth and are flawed like real life people. I just love how even though their behavior isn't the most acceptable I can't dislike them, I just love Yashiro, I want him to find happiness, he deserves it. Chikara is the cool stoic character, which I also like very much ^-^ I just kept hoping he would stop being impotent while Yashiro was doing you know what to him o:
I want more chapter,*dies*

I recommend it, read it and the prequels too :3

Brilliant! Just Brilliant! Even though the prequels were just oneshots, it just conveyed so soo much of emotions. And now that we're in the present of Yashiro's life in this story with an entire volume and hopefully more ofcourse! I can't wait to see what happens next!
Its certaintly dramatic and dark with the lonesome protogonists but at some point I find it hilarious, Chikara stoic-ness and his sudden unintentional humour!

What you first fall in love with are the characters. They are heart-wrenching, flawed, beautiful. You can tell Yoneda Kou has put thought in creating those people.

The art is in tune with the quiet, emotive nuances of the characters and the story itself. It's sparer in style, compared to other BL manga, but, maybe because of that, more powerful.

I think it's one of those stories that manage to transcend their genre, and express the reality of human nature.
