to all the nay sayers who are like "wtf why is a yaoi one of the top rated manga on this site damn fangirls" THIS MANGA IS FREAKING AMAZING. there's so few chapters out but already so much character development and action have occurred that i freak out each time a new chapter comes out.

this manga reminds me a bit of another top-rated manga on this site, Watashitachi no shiawase na jikan, except this one involves yazuka and is much grittier (and has yaoi). but like the previous title, never in my life have i wanted happiness for both main characters in a series so ardently. both characters have had the concept of love ruined for them in their youth, making it nearly impossible for them to interact with others romantically, in more ways than one. however meeting each other strips them of the negative experiences that have haunted them so and make it possible for them to connect in a way they couldn't quite connect with others before. this doesn't solve the romantic problem, however, and there is still a long way to go for them to even begin to acknowledge the change one sparked in the other.

yoneda kou, you are a freaking genius and master troll for ending each chapter with an unbearable cliffhanger. highly recommended.

this is the sequel to Tadayoedo Shizumazu, Saredo Naki Mo Sezu .the story itself has an interesting and unique plot. this is So sweet and bitter and full of emotions.Yashiro's personality is what makes this story so interesting he is so unpredictable. each time he opens his mouth i cry, laugh and smile.and I love how slow this story is progressing. Didn't think I'd get addicted to it but it's so different from everything else I've read. the rating proves it. yoneda kou-sensei is simply amazing . i highly recommend this series! it's one of the best bitter and sweet ones out there. XD

I love the atmosphere of this manga! It's not cheesy at all. It deals with deep, mature themes and brilliantly pulls off the psychological aspects that have to do with rape. Only 7 chapters have been released so far but I feel I've already gotten 3 volumes worth from this manga. As always, Yoneda sensei doesn't disappoint.

I've read a lot of yaoi but I never read something such as this. Yoneda Koe has such a way with her characters, they are beautifully written. She is great at making masochistic characters such as Yashiro. I really enjoy how all her characters interact with one another in this. It's a must read for all yaoi fans.

seriously, yoneda kou-sensei always wins my heart. i love her works as much as i do for youka nitta-sensei. Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai for me is the best yakuza-oriented yaoi manga i have ever read, and for that, 100 out of 10 for this! smile

Yoneda Sensei did it again,she is a master when it comes to create a genius plot.
The art style is not extravagant,it is contemptible with the characters,dark,raw and dufficient.
Yashiro and Doumekiís relationship is so beautiful that it makes my heart beat faster and sometimes I pity Yashiro so much that I have an urge to cry.Yes characters are just so real.
Sigh just go read it people.

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!

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.
