Maybe this manga of YAOI-ness could be in my top 10 of Yaoi. I liked the characters, the fashion, and especially the fact that Iwaki and Kato aren't just worried about their relationship but also as actors. Once in awhile, it gets annoying that Kato is really annoying, whiney, has unnecessary competition and jealousy about the men surrounded Iwaki, but otherwise it was good. It does get a little too sexual for my tastes as they have always have sex but WTH, they're adults, that's what they do.
i like it. but i think that this description i found fits better:
Deals with issues of male self esteem and with boundaries in a relationship. Not as light hearted as it seems to be on the surface. Also, the two male leads are both masculine, proud, strong men. Again, a departure from the traditional seme-uke types in countless yaoi manga. example 1. One of the leads says "If I wanted you because I thought you looked like a woman, I would have just gone for a woman." example 2. The male leads get propositioned by two uke-types but could not "do it".
This is definetely one of the best yaoi mangas ever. Everything is perfect. The charackters, the storyline and the drawings are getting better and better too. That really is a must read.^^ It´s already completed but it would be wonderfull if the mangaka makes another volume.
I find that this manga is a must. It is absolutely adorable and the relationship that grows between both characters is so absolute that you wonder how anyone is able to get between. They face their difficulties head on and understand and trust each other so much that I would think everyone would like to have a relationship with such depth. This story is truly breath-taking and I would recommend it to anyone who believes in love and life. It's also not cliched in a way that it isn't love at first sight for both of the characters but it shows that over time the person whom you least expect may become the most important person to you.
Trash, plain and simple. It doesn't "lampoon" anything, it's just about two porn stars who meet and fight and fall in love and end up moving in together after "realizing" that they're both gay. Even if you like yaoi, this is still pretty poor stuff. There's nothing "lighthearted" about the whining and complaining and petty tiffs and little jealousies either.
I HIGHLY recommend a reading of this manga the storyline is pretty good and the sex scenes are awesome hehe ^_^ *trust me it's alot of them* but yep it's pretty good overall.
Simply the best
This is one yaoi manga which a gay man could read. Both Katou and Iwaki remind me of Brian Kinney of "Queer As Folk" (US) without the ruthlessness. There's plenty of glamour, power and sex, yet there's also tender raw emotions between two gorgeous men. Then there's their love, which is almost elevated to a celestial level in this series. It's, like, "you can't touch this".
I love Youka Nitta's artwork. More gorgeous ways to draw two gorgeous men having gorgeous sex. Very hot. Very glam.
I have only one teeny comment to make about Iwaki constantly being the uke. Only once in the whole series so far, Up to Vol. 12 Extra, that he gets to be the seme and give it to Katou. Mixing it up more would make it even more believeable.
of tears & melodrama all in the name of love
The art is gorgeous & very sensual! I like how Youka Nitta mixes physical pleasure with intense emotions skillfully in her intimate drawings. I also like the different illustrative angles she explores.
As for plot- it is DRAMATIC!! lol, you have been warned xD However, I admit that some lines & emotions showed were rather touching & romantic despite it getting overdramatic at parts! It works when you are in the mood to be swept off your feet by the over the top drama & passionate exchanges. References to them struggling as actors in the world of entertainment were engaging too.
Also, I adore Yoji Kato & therefore my enjoyment of the series most probably is influenced by the attraction & love I have for Kato as a character ^__^
good and bad
Pretty good. Akward translations makes itdifficult to read
