Although I think the ending was my favorite part (Other than the beginning) I just love how she showed his angel Promising he will atch over her and that he will always love her, forever. Crap, Im crying again! Its just sooo sad! I just wish they could have gotten married and live the life they wanted together! I think SHINJO Mayu needs to make a alternate ending for those of us who want to know what would happen if he didnt die. Whay did he have to cry!!!! But i do have to admit, the ending was adorable and If that ever happened to me, I would want someone saying that about me. Even though it is Extremely sad!!!

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

total smut, what can you say?

title says it all...
If you're looking for pure, violent, s&m smut, then this is it. If you're looking for a well-crafted storyline that intrigues you psychologically, then this series is probably not it. CLASSIC Shinjo Mayu...same artistic style, same basic male and female characters, same rape/sex scenes, you get the picture. For what it is, it's ok. But mediocre as a gangster/kidnapping love story - there are so many better avenues to explore. And jesus, can her female characters get any more insipid and helpless? I know it's a stylized archetype of the passive female, but still. The story just gets annoying after a while...

Yeh there was lots of rape and nonsense but it's not really bad or anything.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I was very disappointed in the ending; it was so sad... They deserved to be together after going through all of that.

So, now that I've finished it I'm wondering why I even started.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
At the end he died and neither him nor her found the happiness they were looking for. -.- Lame, if at least she would be with Foron (or what he was called) then one would be happy at the end.

The smut wasn't worth it, since I'm also no fan of rape and sexual abuse and don't need it to be glorified like this. Just because it may belong to the field of the mafia in that manga doesn't mean I do enjoy seeing someone getting raped. It added to its tragedy though.
Ignoring the rape scenes I enjoyed the rest until the end ruined it.
Ah well, I give it a 5 for its sweet and passionate parts and its chinese setting. Wasn't a total waste after all wink

Personally, I thougt that this was a great manga.
But all the rape and stuff made me wanna kill shinjo mayu.
I mean, really.
He couldve expressed his love in ways other than sex and rape.

Seriously.....I dont get how this manga is bad..or even HORRIBLE!?? Come on guys....Hakuron lives in the mafia world, a world where everything is all about money and power. What do you expect from someone who has never been taught about love? Let alone the meaning of the word.....
I personally loved the manga. I really enjoyed reading it. SO far, I think this is one of the best mangas I've ever read. FOr those who called it sick or disturbing, you guys need to focus more on the story line rather than how many times Kurumi got raped. T.T

i loved this story! but it would have been better if it didnt have kurami getting raped like every five seconds lol.....
somehow i think the ending kind of fits...since there is no other way to end this story...and like mono1 said, it seemed like it was rushed..
however...it made me REALLY sad!
*snif snif*

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....??!?!)
