Karis won it all

I have to agree with the last two comments below, the main couple relationship was really disturbing. They both had their issues and it's fine they were trying to help each other but Lucaon was just too much. Especially with realizing his own feelings. For me it seems like the first season was well-thought and really entertaining but something bad happened to the plot in season 2 and even worse in season 3. Lucaon changed his attitude without explaining anything to Kyon and Kyon just accepted it. The questions came way too late
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and I cannot believe Lucaon never properly apologized for what he was doing to Kyon. And he kept having the same attitude to other servants in the last chapter. Kyon was just foolishly in love but Lucaon had done nothing to deserve it. And the way he handled the whole corruption of his core was so out of character. At the end of season 1 he was already realizing he likes Kyon and doesn't want him gone but because he had his believes about servants and his pride, he didn't really change his attitude, just regretted his actions (rape) later. And then suddenly when season 2 came, he was running like maiden in love. Even taking into account the crazy circumstances, this was so out of the character. I do not believe he would not suspect Kyon longer. Even though mangaka tried to show that it cannot be him, because he cried etc. by making Cecile think all of this... the fact Cecile was so sure of Kyon was also unnatural. She might have the ability to read minds but this was just too convenient to let Kyon be like this. Especially when just days earlier she was just standing watching the poor boy bleed out to death.


Apart from the main couple, Sihan and Karis were absolutely amazing. I'm surprised that the author was able to write sucha level-headed and wonderful character as Karis. He was always keeping his cool. He didn't stupidly throw away his friends and family for a lover and was not scared to stand up to Sihan when they did not agree about something.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Even though Lucaon hurt him when he was trying to protect Kyon, he never backed off and was rushing with help the moment he noticed something is wrong.

He is truly a friend/lover everyone wants but a few deserve. Just because of him an Sihon (whose backstory and change were also very well written and logical) I gave this a 6/10.

3/10 for the Lucaon x Kyon couple, 10/10 for Sihan x Karis and 7/10 for Cecile and Ryan (there was just too many things that were not explained). It seems like the author wanted to finish the manga within season 3 and was just rushing with it all, thinking that if they resolve the romance part, everything will be fine but the reades got involved in the whole word and just wanted more about it.

Btw, if you like the general feeling the webtoon gives you, try reading Noblesse, this is not a yaoi/shounen ai, but has similar mystery vibe with some supernatural beings meddling with humans.

The MC and seme spend the majority of the story having a very questionable relationship. The MC is constantly abused and he doesn't have the balls to stand up to ANY of it. I wish some of the side characters (who are immensely more interesting) could have more spotlight. The 2 main characters are lacklustre and depthless. There are also various unresolved plot points that bring the ending to a somewhat unsatisfying ending. The art isn't terrible, but nothing to write home about. So, other than somewhat interesting side characters, this series doesn't have many redeeming qualities.

The bad things: The main couple and the overall story

Lucaon's and Kyon's relationship is one of the most toxic ones I've ever seen in a yaoi. And I'm usually totally OK with dubious consent and initial rapey scenes in my BL-manga (yeah, get over it), but this one is on a whole new level. This, my friends is a perfect example of the Stockholm syndrome. And not the over-romanticized kind.
I hated both of the main characters. Lucaon is just a cruel seme, with zero character developement througout the story,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he treats Kyon so poorly, even after they got together, he keeps raping him and hurting him, he has serious anger issues, and can't control himself at all.

Kyon is a typical, very annoying, pushover, 'damsel in distress'-type of uke, useless and weak minded. He has the personality of a piece of paper. Like, really, we don't get to know about him anything else, other than for whatever reason, he loves Lucaon.

The story is absolutely shit. Like, for real. Nothing makes sense, the fantasy world the author builds is full with illogical things, the story full with plotholes, with questions, that never get answered.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Why do the nobles keep eating food, when it is stated, that they can live without it (either with taking medicine or sucking energy from people)? Why would you frickin' risk your life by getting poisoned, when you absolutely do not have to do so??? Makes zero sense. Why did the symbol on Kyon's neck change after his 'awakening'? If it was because he was awakened by Intron, then it was a shitty plan of Intron to have him infiltrate the Selvior house, because the Intron symbol would make him busted in a second. Why did Kyon hurt his neck, when he was about to leave Lucaon? If he was leaving anyway, wouldn't it be irrelevant what symbol he has on his neck? Or did he try to commit suicide? Then why did he do that literally 10 meters away from the house??
What happened with Edwin? What was his reason to hurt the main characters? And so on, nothing really makes any sense in this comic.


The good things: the second couple and the art

Ok, let me tell you, how I loved Sihan and Karis, especially Karis. He was so refreshingly down-to-earth. He stood up for himself and others, I loved how he tried to help Kyon throughout the whole story, how he cared about his well-being, when even Kyon himself couldn't care less. And how he loved Sihan, how he always tried to speak with him, even when they were fighting, he genuinly tried to communicate and get his emotions through every time, never to leave on a bad note. They just respected each other so much, and I loved it. Their relationship was the only thing I gave a 3 for this piece, too bad, there's not too much of them in the story.

And the art was pretty. Nothing extraordinary, but I liked it.

The story goes like this: a straight supernatural guy was betrayed in the past and has serious trust issues now. He used to be very naive but now he's totally broken inside. His servant falls for him and is so earnest that the master notices his feelings and since he's so lonely, he pushes him into bed. They still haven't made it clear that they're a couple but the master is very affectionate now and things seem to be going to the right direction. At the same time, master has a childhood friend with supernatural powers just like him that had a very tragic past but worked out his issues and turned into a fine guy now. He met his partner (a servant, as well) and they are very lovey-dovey but his partner feels very insecure all the time because this master hasn't told him anything about his past. Plus, all of them are fighting against a mysterious enemy that wants to take over their world.

You have 2 different gay couples in a yaoi fantasy. The best thing ever! The art is amazing and it bares a strong resemblance to Yoo Ha Jin's drawing style (she created the "Totally captivated" series). I really recommend this one.
