Okay, so...I've just started to read this and I'm not sure what I should say. Maybe my opinion my change if I get to the end or something. The only character that I'm not satisified, right from the start, is Aine. I know all girls are weak and so on but that's not necessarily true either. At first, I thought that I can accept the fact that she's weak and not strong minded. But as I get into the middle of the story, I just realized that she's just running around in circles. She never change, even from the start. She's still having that "I must be a burden, so I need to give up!" and starts to run away. Although I think she braves up a little with the Ayako case. (I really feel like slapping Ayako, really!)

I hope she'll grow stronger, instead of just counting on Sakuya for protection or giving up Sakuya for the sake of protecting him in her own way or something. I mean, Sakuya will be hurt too!
Instead, I hope to see that she'll protect their love and not giving up!! *sighs* I better continue reading it. tsk tsk.

Wow, what drugs was I on to ever think this was good?
Someone please teach feminist studies in Japan, because the sexism in this was horrific.
Seriously, what was I thinking rating it well ??!

Wow, this was the first smutty manga I ever read. The artwork is very beautiful. And even with the cliche storyline, its entertaining and a good read. I liked it.

I usually don't read any mangas pre 2000 since the style of the 90s are to old fashion for me thus I dont like anything drawn before 2000, but this was an exception since it was by shinjo mayu. Her work is awsome down from storyline to drawing. Although I can not vouch for anything she drew before this one this is the only manga I like because of plot and not because of the drawing. Otherwise I'm in love with her other current works with better drawings. This one has a great plot very cute.

i dont really care about the manga, but the anime ROCKS!!!!....check it out on youtube and i'm sure you'll love it!....less focus on relationships, but then, you just have to get tired of all those shoujo stuff after a while eh....the anime is more focus on the band, but the songs, the story, and everything else (including the art) is much much much livelier and better!!!! i love the anime biggrin !!!

ps: the manga is fine too, but i think that the story would've been much better without the overdose sex....2 much sex would lessen the meaning of it >_<

I have to agree at the comment below. This manga is all about sex. Suprisingly this manga was popular with the young girls which is allarming. IMO I think this manga is created to fulfill girl's sexual fantasies or perversion. Anyway the plot is cliche and repetitive; girl gets bullied guy rescue girl, girl was hurt guy avenge girl. There is no progress with the character and as the story continues
it gets worst.

I recommend this manga to all shinjo mayu fan's who love weak female who gets rape by her partner and some villains.

All I can say to the next readers ; read this manga at your own risk.

If you consider that it was done almost a decade ago and still an up to date content, it is a great story. Probably would be great if you could see the anime first, because it is based on the band not the girl as the manga is. Shinjo Mayu makes a good job drawing and not giving the image of an decade old manga. The problem notice for all is around the heroine, who is too naive and yes, too many times plain dumb, making the story tiring in certain moments. She is too much medieval woman, always depending on her knight to tell her what to do or waiting to be saved, never learning with her bad experiences. Not considering these details, I love this manga, and have the complete series, some volumes first edition, and never get tired of re-reading the great ones. I only wish that Shinjo-san could have explored more the other characters' life stories as the anime did a little. Anyways it is worth reading and meeting a gorgeous rock-star-knight: Sakuya Ookoshi and his yummy band mates.

Well, I suppose in Kaikan Phrase's defense, it could have been worst. If you are a fan of smut, well, you'll get plenty. I actually like the artwork here, it's not horrible, not my favorite, but definitely on the good side of my preferences. I admire the eyes, which I think are the best parts. Smut scenes are done decently enough because I have seen worst.

The plot, however, was cliche, typical, and rather bland. Alright, musicians, with erotic music, wonderful...but why must the girl always be victimized? I like the concept of the band of Lucifer, it wasn't a horrible idea, but every chapter seems to revolve around the female protagonist in some way. I kind of stopped caring about must of the characters very early on the series. It's always boy meets girl, fall in love, and everyone is suddenly out for the female. Le typical of shoujo. >_>;

And as for the characters, if you dislike weak female leading characters, turn away now, or just enjoy the smut. Aine, well, she was better than the girl from Love Celeb, I'll give her that much, but other than that she was rather two-dimensional for my taste. I understand that she loves Sakuya but the fact that she often waits for him to save her, all those times she cried, I don't know, I just wish she would grow a backbone sometime soon. Some of the male characters were decent characters. Funny what a background can do for a character! Anyhow, it seemed to me that the characters I learned more about, their pasts, their families, not just their love interests, the more I liked them. However, the deeper glimpses into the other characters were very brief before going back to Aine and Sakuya.

All in all, if you crave smut, read it. If you crave a good storyline with smut, go read something else, like Midnight Secretary.

I think if you have a lot of time to kill, you should give this manga a try. When I read it, I went through six volumes in one sitting but of course, like any mangas beyond volume 5 it got repetitive. This was my first real "shoujo/smut" manga so I have fond memories of this series and the anime! I

A typical "normal girl meets celebrity" storyline. I got through two volumes before I started losing interest in the plot. The conflicts just flow from one contrived situation to another. In short: perfect for Shinjo Mayu fans - not for fans of a developed and original plot.
