My Thoughts

I honestly loved most of this manga .. I actually got pretty attached to it from the beginning. Although the part when he was just constantly raping her pissed me off along with that Lei Lan girl. But besides that it was really good. I enjoyed reading MOST of it and I thought the plot was pretty good although they did drag some parts out a bit too much.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
But I though the ending was a really shame. Honestly I was looking forward to a nice ending where they get married and have a kid or something like that (which she should considering the amount of times they got it on) but NO that super gay dude who thinks he can protect Kurumi had to go and wreck it. And then she just ends up with the cat. WTH?! Uber lame that neither of them ended up happy.

I mean I know Hakuron did some horrible things but despite all that drama and lead up to the ending you'd think you would find some saught of resolve. Especially after Kurumi stopped being an annoying prick so rather then being all like "I am unworthy!" or "You are a murderer!" and finally found some resolve.
Well I guess besides the ending it was pretty awesome and I seriously enjoyed it.

Superifical and extremely irritating

The girl is irritating beyond words. Your typical stupid swooning heroin. The story diverges so much from reality that no amount of imagination and tolerance can save it from being a complete flop..

I love this manga, and they go through so much.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I just wish that they could have finally gotten married. It was so close, and with all that happened, I wish that she could have given them happiness at the end T_T

Yeh there was lots of rape and nonsense but it's not really bad or anything.

I was very disappointed in the ending; it was so sad... They deserved to be together after going through all of that.

Disgusted x.x

im not just saying this cause its smut, cause personally i couldnt care less. what disgusts me is the guy has got a sick and twisted mind, and the girl, who is a complete RETARD keeps fawning over him -.-"
she gets ripped away from her sick mother (who is in need of hospitalization), and her young twin brothers, yet after the first couple chapters, she has completely forgotten about her family and never mentions them again.
then she watches him shoot a girl dead in the middle of the library, gets raped for 3 days straight, yet still fawns over him o.o
and ya its yakuza/mafia, but the girls reaction is just weird considering how weak she is o.0

Love it or Hate it....

Let's face it: you are either going to love this manga, or hate it.
I was someone who happened to really enjoy Haou Airen. I like dark romances, and scary psycho mafia leaders.....
Other people will hate this manga, because the heroine of the story is somewhat weak-minded and helpless.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a dark romance with a bit of smut.

A warning though, like all Mayu Shinjo's, this does contain "Consensual rape." Whatever that is. (How can rape be consensual....??!?!)

SHOCKING ENDING!

What an unfortunate ending.. really sad.

I find this manga really depressing but I still understand the situation by reading the whole story..
It's kinda draggy at beginning and its really sad that the heroine is the most pathetic and some what really naive/clueless.. but its understandable, though... hakuron is agressive and very forceful towards her I think he truely love her... hmmm.. there are lots of misuderstanding going on and also involve alot of people that want to tear them apart...

Also it has the proof that Hakuron really LOVES Kurumi.. he may done it in a demonic way but the feeling of protecting someone is stronger .. though he doesnt want to hurt Kurumi but for her sake he'll be the strongest man that can only protect her even it cost his life... (just like the endling)...

Really shoking story.. but thats how it ends.. at least he left something special for her (KITTEN=CAT)... even they are apart, as long as they think about each other and love each other... that only matters.. I think.... very corny and naive thoughts but it works only in manga world..

all in all, this is one twisted plot! i wanted to scream at the girl to grow a backbone, a brain, and get a sense of self respect!!
there may be people out there who really like dis manga, i respect that even tho i dont personally understand it

How can ANYONE like this manga? What kind of a twisted mind (or lack of a mind entirely) must one have to enjoy such a plot? The heroine is among the most pathetic of her type that I've ever read about (excluding other Shinjo Mayu manga, of course), and the hero may be handsome in some way, but his attitude isn't even remotely attractive.

As to the people who think it's realistic and romantic, I have one thing to tell you: girls who get kidnapped by the mafia and then forced into sex do NOT fall in love with their captor, especially not after knowing them for a few hours. That is not a realistic romance, nor is it even romantic. That's sick and twisted, and I fail to see how anyone could fantasize about such a thing.
