Asaichi can't play any instruments and his voice is average, and he's only in a band for the girls and the sex. Plus, he's homophobic. For some reason the new bassist Yoru is infatuated with him despite the treatment Asaichi gives him.

Included "Aru Otoko no Uta": the story of yakuza Onii chan and how he had come to know Yoru.

Violent and passionate

I personally really dig this setting of a band for a story that comprises of such head-strong and resilient characters. It provides a somewhat more believable ground for subsequent events that stem from clashing personalities and their internal conflicts, so all that violence and gruesome wrongdoings don't feel too overdone and overused just for the sake of a dramatic turnout, which is sadly not the case for all of Harada-sensei's works imo. The story certainly is 'hot' in many aspects, but it's the hidden warmth burning in its heart that really sets this unique tale apart. I also love the depiction of youths which even though is overdramtised still succeeds at transcribing the passionate and daring nature that youth ultimately is all about.

This has shaken me up badly but I confess I liked it. The characters are pretty messed up (the masochistic uke annoys me even more than the terrible, terrible seme). But the story is intense and gripping and I read it in one go. Not for the faint-hearted, but exciting enough...

The plotting and pacing in this manga are spot on, there's hardly a chance to catch your breath as the action barrels forward. However, this manga is NOT for the faint of heart, there is a lot of violence, rape, dubious consent and sexual torture, that said, none of it is glorified or for titillation, it fits the story and furthers the plot.

Realistic violence

Violence is VERY ugly in this manga. The authors skills make a reader unable to go through it undisturbed. That said, I really liked this title for the plot, nicely developed characters and art style.

Freaking glorious.

Chapter 5 is super heavy, be warned. Added squick of

being forced to swallow urine by a third party rapist. Grossness of that aside, I'll probably still buy the tankoubon.

There are a lot of nopes in this manga... Including the minus point on the "only gay for you" thing. Why can't they just say

"I don't know, I've only ever fallen for you"? Another complaint I have is not being able to see more of their performance as dual vocalists together.

Asaichi's not a likable character--he's a complete bastard, and Yoru's love for him seems overly fluffy at times. Shiori's bro's
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
affections for Yoru also seem unresolved and kinda cut off at a weird point--and it was strange to start the story from his POV when the story revolved around Yoru and Asa.

That aside--Yoru's absolutely captivating. The sex scenes are incredible? ?? I usually don't care that much about the sex scenes, but www oooowowo. High-level.
And Yoru's affections for Asaichi actually make sense and we see the reasons behind it. So it's not a "infatuation at first sight" thing.
It's dark, yet a bit fluffy too at times. It goes super dark at other times. It's not a light read, and it's a rollercoaster but gooood is it glorious.
I may have been a bit overly generous with the score, but I really like the main characters' dynamics in the end.

Disturbing but good

I love Harada. It doesn't matter how fucked up or dark Harada's stories get, I still can't help but finish them and enjoy them. But this one was the first that took me over half a year to dare continue reading. But eventually I came back and finished it, with the promise of a happy ending and it sure didn't let me down!

This story starts with some of the hottest sex scenes a "public sex scenes"-lover like me have ever read. At the first read I found it disturbing how Asaichi acts, but eventually I came to love his character for what it was. At chapter 5 I found myself dropping this for that half year I mentioned earlier. But the two chapters following are the sweet redemption I needed! It gives me all I needed to really love this story, just like I do all of Harada's other works.
