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).

I love this work of Yamane just after Crimson spell.
All the characters have strong personalities. No more words to describe the art, splendid.^^.

"pleochroic"
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.

why is this so popular? it's far from the worst yaoi ever, mind, and yamane ayano's art brings the pretty in spades, but "the best", or "cute and funny" -- not by a long shot. the rabid fangirling about it on every manga forum is almost enough to turn me off completely. now then, here's a review from a not-fangirl:

asami should be in jail, and in psychotherapy. yeah, he looks hot, but he's only drawn that way, *wry grin*. he's cold and cruel, and his sexual proclivities tend towards rape, domination and sadism. i don't find seme like him attractive, i find them despicable. fei long -- oi, so pretty, and oi, so messed up. he should be in jail and therapy with asami (and if they were to get it on, i'd be ok with that; the battle would be worth it). takaba is the shining light of the manga, or rather, he was. he started out feisty, taking no shit from anyone, dusting himself off after that initial rape and moving right along. but since then he's become a powerless pawn who gets raped as a matter of course and guess what? comes to like it. *urgh*.

the story line is terribly convoluted -- i just bet yamane-san didn't plot this out from the start -- and consequently i couldn't care less for the yakuza vs triad machinations. the bits about fei long's background, those are interesting, and i like it best when asami and fei long interact. unfortunately 3/4 of the fandom would lynch yamane-san if she actually let them be together in the end, so that won't happen. it's worth a look to see whether you'll get subsumed into the fandom or can resist and pray for takaba to find himself a nice, non-criminal boy with whom to shack up.
