The series that's just got it

The story started out kind of shaky with no set plot line to it except for a photographer and a mafia boss's encounters. But then as the story progressed, it became really good and I just can't get enough. All the characters have strong personalities which is rare to come by in a yaoi or other kind of manga, where even the villian has their own distinctive grudge or personality. There's also much character change especially in the uke and some in the seme(Hehehe, Asami, you know you like Akihito) and that's something different too. No more useless uke's!

This is a great yaoi and I don't think I could ask for more, plot, character development, suspense, it's all there!

One of the best yaoi mangas I've ever read. smile The art is gorgeous, the characters are unique and well-done. The uke isn't annoying (in my opinion), which is quite refreshing, because ukes in yaoi stories often tend to be SO helpless and annoying! This uke has a tough personality and quite a temper too. wink The plot is also very catchy and action-filled/dramatic, with guns and fighting plus some really hawt lovey~~scenes. It's nice that this story isn't short either -- looking forward to the next chapter release! <3

a must-read!

Edit: I've reread this quite many times, and it keeps being A W E S O M E.

I definitely love this story..As many said, the characters are pretty interesting and each of them unique (not only in personality, but artwork too....I got tired of reading mangas where the art was all the same...felt like the same character with a different name).
I like the story so far, I've read up to ch 26 and I find it totally different from other yaoi mangas (that usually lack a good plot).
Can't wait for the next chapter!!
BTW, I want Akihito to end up with Asami, of course (even though he's from the mafia and has a twisted personality).

I loved the second story with Feilong and Asami. I didn't really enjoy things that Asami did to Akihito... And the first scene was the most perverted yaoi scene I've ever seen (despite the fact that I've already read plenty of them).

All the characters have strong personalities. No more words to describe the art, splendid.^^.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
well, you do know that they are very fowerful people (Asami & Feilong)
so for them being in jail because they molest a kid that acualy enjoys what Asami does to him is very unlikable.
Yeah, they are messed up, but Feilong has a hard past, though he let Akihito go after he enslaved him for a while...
Asami came after Akihito to hong kong while still recovering from the injuries caused when he was protecting Akihito.

At the begining they are both realy messed up as you said (they go rape Akihito sevral times). Still, Akihito likes Asami^^ as he said "don't pull it out" *cough*

oh my... i've never written staff like thast ^.^;;;;

Well, I guesse you shouldn't read my comment...
too spoiling. *sob*
Oh, and thanks for however highlighed it as a spoiler because now I know how to^^ Thanks

Intrigue, Excitement and Sexy Characters!!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This is certainly a manga series that is controversial and either you love it or hate it. I for one absolutely love it!!

The artwork is beautiful and the story-line is woven together with intrigue, excitement, power and of course, hot sex.

Yamane Ayano certainly draws the sexiest characters, but each one is different and very unique in their own right.

First off, you have the very sexy, yet dangerous 'Under-World" leader - Asami Ryuichi. Whom many might say is sadistic and cruel, but he actually does everything for a reason and expects the best out of himself and those around him.

Next comes The Dragon - the beautiful and deadly 'Baishe' leader - Liu Fei Long, whose past has haunted him for years, and constantly directs him along a path of revenge and sorrow.

Then the Uke of the story, who is caught between two dangerous men, is the always rambunctious, constantly getting into trouble photographer - Takaba Akihito. He certainly is not your ‘typical’ uke.

One part of the story that people find controversial takes place right after Asami meets Takaba, but Asami never does anything unless it serves a specific purpose, and in this instance it was to teach a lesson to Takaba, and for that reason, I feel it was necessary.

I recommend this series to everyone, for not only the great characters and intriguing story-line, but also because Yamane Ayano in my opinion is one the greatest mangaka's.
