interesting theory

The art is really unapealling , at least to me T^T
But I found the plot so creative an captive as well. I'm intrigued by the concept of a world full of men and only a woman exsits as a holy mother for repoductivity. The author explained her theory quite well about how why there was only a "mother" and human was desperately looking for away to bare children to revive the barren world on earth.

Great plotty yaoi/shounen-ai

Although the art is typically old-fashioned, and everyone has crazily big hair, this manga is definitely worth a read. I stumbled upon this looking for new yaoi, and originally passed it up as it was marked as shounen-ai. However, this does have sex in, as well as rape, although nothing is shown (but if you're in this for the sex, then back out now).

The plot is interesting, if a little confusing to take in all at once in the beginning. You need to read the dialogue boxes to keep up with it, which is something I tend to skim/glaze over at if it becomes too complex. However, Kira's mystery and the whole plot drew me in enough for me to want to do this.

This manga definitely had an interesting concept - what yaoi reader wouldn't love reading about a society completely male, where everyone is expected to be gay? The Iroko/Nenja set up I also found fascinating, especially the way sensei portrays this in the manga, as it is very similar to the ancient greek eromenos and erastes system that used to exist.

The characters, whilst not being anything new, were at least likable and easy to understand. I found the situation of some of the characters very bittersweet, and could emphasize (if not relate, lol) with many of their problems.

In conclusion, this is well worth a read (as others have said) even if it is incomplete. As not very much sci-fy, dystopian type yaoi/shounen-ai exists out there, this is a must-read for any fan of the crossover yaoi-sci-fi genre.

worth reading it

unique, deep, captivating plot, nice art, i absolutely loved it. moto-sensei is a genius, she thought of the marginal universe herself, all the infos and details of this story made sense and i enjoyed reading this different, realistic story. reading the series, i had a very weird feeling cause on one hand, it was so interesting that i wanted to read more, on the other hand, i didn't want the series to end (i had to see the raws to get an idea of what was next since the manga isn't fully translated online...). there was no way to predict the ending and i was really excited and curious to see the guy kira ends up with, but the very ending really let me down... overall, marginal was very, very good but the bitter feeling i felt when i saw the last few scenes (cause i was disappointed with kira's match) spoiled a really well-built story for me...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
on another note, i'll have to point that out: when you have to choose between 2 guys, why would you ever think of choosing the worse one? honest, kind-hearted people that treasure you the most are definetely a better catch, why bother with the obsessive, phycho types?

I've got to say that I love the plot. It's flawless and captivating, what with the mysterious sci-fi stuff going on and the conspiracies...
And the art is very awesome too!
