Good if you're not expecting too much

Desire Climax is smutty, cliche, and formulaic. The situations are exaggerated and the main characters are cardboard cutouts of the typical shoujo male and female leads. For the most part, everything seems to play out like a bad soap opera.

However, if you're willing to suspend belief and not expect too much from this series, then I can bet that you'll enjoy this manga for what it is. It's smutty fluff that doesn't require you to invest too much of your emotions or your brain for that matter. Despite its many flaws, Desire Climax does have some pretty nice artwork, which can usually do much to make up for bad writing.

I read this manga thinking it would be good, but as mentioned before, it crashes and burns after maybe the middle of the second volume. Mio, the main girl, is almost biopolar when making decisions when it comes to the prince, and her constant refusal is ANNOYING. As my good friend says, if you want it, bend down and obey! >.< I'm really sick of shojo like this. The rest of the charcters are also too weird,and the situations are completely unrealistic (I don't know ANY landlord who'd pay my momma's medical bills. Nobody). The only reason I kept reading up to 34 chapters was cuz of the Prince, and he isn't that big of a catch either. Why can't shojo have main charcters that make up their minds and kick people in the balls like regular girls do?!

obviously, only if there are demands for this kind of plot/setting will there be manga like this.

I'm fed up with the ownership type crap mangaka are chewing up like quickcash.
it's sick to think someone being owned and abused like the one in this manga can love the very person abusing her.

the story (when all the smut is filtered out) is mediocre, cliche friendly (only the sick and twisted ones) and generally doesn't go anywhere.

To think young girls are reading this (assumption made based on category spec)... I just think it's morally wrong to fill their mind with this crap.

Not as bad as the first time

It started with a good enough plotline and I really enjoyed it. But when it got to incest (EDIT: went back to it and it ended up not being true in either case, since she's not related to either of the male interests), I stopped reading it at chapter 26. Then I went back to it just to complete it. Second time around reading it, I liked it a lot more. The ending was really good. It's not such a bad series at all.

But the plot and characters are way too unrealistic for me
If you're in it just for the kinks, it's interesting enough

This manga is literally overrated. I agree with the others--it started out fine, but after the first volume (I won't even say the second volume), it started spiraling downhill at full speed. There's just too much random drama and unrealistic characters (unrealistic characters would be okay, had they been given a chance to have some type of development, but the characters never "grow up" or learn from their mistakes. The main character is so easy to manipulate, and the tyrannical prince is nothing but tyrannical.

Started off great

I completely agree with the comment by pjahisvain. When I first started reading this back in the first volume, I loved it. I mean, it really kept me on my seat and I really wanted to know what happened next. Things went downhill from there. The 'heroine' becomes such a weak-willed girl that I lost respect for her a long time ago. She constantly lets people push her around (especially the guy) then gets all sad, depressed, and begins to blame herself when the guy stops jumping her and starts to ignore her. Come on now...>.>

I'll continue to read this mainly to see more crap dumped on the girl and guy. I can't say I'm rooting for anyone in this manga.

Initially, the comic started off REALLY well, i mean... you will DEFINITELY be interested innit. However, around the 2nd or 3rd volume, the plot gradually bored me and in the end, the raping and all that is just too repetitive that i dont think it's all romantic anymore. I agree with some people saying how this comic can be a great use for those with raging hormones (yknow what i mean) though if you're looking for a romance... you've picked out the wrong manga.

*sighs* i was really looking forward to a good middle and ending throughout this story due to its unique beginning. I guess, i'll have to search for another one then. I've actually ended my reading at its 3rd volume ... pleaseeee, do tell me if i'm wrong about this comic and a great reason to continue my reading-session.

LOL I agree with nightswan, if its smut you're looking for then love celeb's a better choice. Take the smut out of Desire Climax and you're not left with much really.. just tonnes of angst, family problems that HELLO are out of this world, and a typical shoujo clueless heroine who can't realize when she's being hit on. And things just keep getting worse =P
