I mean this is one of the most horrible mangas I have EVER read.
Shinjo Mayu's work has always make her characters so weak, native and not really attractive, but she makes her main guys so sexy and powerful. I think this manga was a huge disapointment as well with the most depressing endings I ever encountered but i think it suits this horrible manga as well. I mean Kurumi just keeps getting raped, sexually abused by Hakuron and she still loves him...I loved the smut scenes but the characters and the plot wasnt worth continuing the series. I give this series 1/10. I feel sorry for Kurumi but then again I don't..so idiotic

I'm sorry, but this is one of the worst mangas I've ever read.
It started out okay [with me ignoring the sexual abuse] but it just got stupider and stupider...
I stopped reading it at chapter 3. Since then, i've been avoiding it like the plague...

I completely loved this series at the beginning. I don't know why, but the portrayal of the mafia as cold hearted and bloody appealing to me, along with a rich, intelligent, attractive bishie never goes amiss.
It was shown as a bit glamorous, but with a cruel background behind the wealth and glamour.

However after the couple experience a relationship breakdown, there is complete misery for about three volumes (rape, rape, rape and more rape along with some heartbreak and violence)
I got extremly bored of the continual raping of one female character who spent the whole time crying, then ended up enjoying being raped and desiring him to do it again!!!

I know the end too, and its unsatisfying. I won't spoil it, but take the hint of the genre 'tragedy'

So in conclusion, read up to about volume 3, and feel free to keep going if you enjoy watching other people being continually raped. Which would make you very sadistic. And disgusting.

I've been reading..
and only noticed that one of the genres say Tragedy! embarrassed
This better not end badly..or....I don't know.
So far..it's quite interesting. I hate all those heart clenching moments like where the characters misunderstand each other and such.

love comes in different forms.. label me a weirdo or sicko, but i can sympathetize with the main male lead.. you love someone and you dont want to hurt them but there are times that "I" think i just want to lock her in a cage and just keep her to myself.. I dont want anybody to see her or touch her.. I cant deny that I have those thoughts.. if I ever was in his shoes, with all the fame, power, status and money I would do the same thing he did.. make her not forget about me for the rest of her life.. he was just rough around the edges and he really wasnt taught about love and he doesnt know how to express it.. but he really did want the girl to stay by his side, cause she was his light in the dark world of the mafia. unexpecdetly, it was quite entertaining (my title subject).. i was anxious to read the next chapter as I finish a chapter.. the drawings were really nice.. there was heavy drama.. the smutfest was definitely there.. it was a good read for me.. not recommded for those who just started reading manga or to hypocrites or idealists.. not like im not one but after reading this comment, hope you pick this up.. it might be what you are looking for than those other romance mangas out there..

no offense, but i like shinjo mayu's mangas.but the one thing that bothers me the most is the fact that the lead females are always perceived as weak, thus need to be continuously protected-be it in the name of love, lust, etc! Moreover, Shinjo Mayu has created magnificent characters, transformed into the male leading or supporting characters. but the lack of presence for the females are far too apparent. I think there is no strong connection whatsoever between the female and male characters here,among others, could be seen in keikan phrase and of course haou airen.
no offense, i do enjoy this manga, but i think this manga wouldnt go that far if the leading female and male characters are too imbalanced in personality. Take a look at Hana yori Dango, where the leading characters' presence are so strong, it was even adapted into drama series. Hopefully, in her future creations, the mangaka could present an even better and outstanding storyline that will far surpass my criticism.

Clearly, Shinjo Mayu's leading female characters need to be re formulated. They shouldnt be abandoned to be as weak as they are. and the string between the characters need to be stronger, and developed more comprehensively.

I just saw the genre for the first time in a long time and it says tragedy.... AHHHH....... What's gonna happen what's gonna happen.... This is like the only Mayu Shinjo manga that I actually sorta pay attention to........ oh well, I have to admit I like tragedies.... Just don't like that they gave away the ending....

I like some parts of the story, but the majority of it was a turn off for me. The male lead can be really sweet and gentle at times, but that doesn't make up for all the other times he's a jerk to the female lead, especially when it involves rape. The female lead was really annoying. Her innocence was fine for the first 3 volumes, but when she was still like that past volume 3, it really got to be too much. The drama is way over the top to the point of being ridiculous and there's so much rape in this story it's not even funny.

Though, despite what sounds like a negative review, for some reason I still stuck to this manga and read it to the end. There's something about it that just kept me going, so I can't say it was all bad...it just could have been much much better.

its pretty dramatic but overall the plot kept me kinda interested ... the lead female is a lil naive while the lead male tries really hard but sometimes fails. looking foward to the next chapter.

I love this manga. It's really pretty good, and I would suggest reading it. Maybe I'm a mature junkie? Who knows. But the mature-ness was just what I was looking for, and their is some depth to the manga, at least. Different from many of Shinjo Mayu's other works, and that's what I like.

The one thing that makes me waver: Kurumi. The female protagonist is so annoyingly stupid I could off myself, because it ruins the manga slightly for me. I wish she were a little stronger, smarter, something to give her that amazingness. It maybe wishful thinking, and I know she adds to the drama slightly (?) but c'mon, really. The innocence thing can only go so far in this manga, when it demands maturity like this.

Besides that, the manga is really good, so don't let Kurumi stop you. If you're into the maturity and the not-the-typical shoujo thing, I definitely recommend this. ^^

EDIT: The ending is stupid and sad, damnit. D= And, after re-reading this, I lied. Let Kurumi stop you. Really, there have been some dumb ones, but Kurumi takes the cake, and I mean that.
