Mixed Feelings

I was surprisingly emotional when reading this and usually that would make me rate it a 8/10, but I have issue with the rape at the beginning and the other one somewhere in the middle (if i remember correctly). I was pretty peeved since most of the time the sexual activities were consensual so I don't know why they couldn't have kept it like that throughout the whole entire thing. I have pretty mixed feelings about this cause I like it, but at the same time I don't.

On another note, the art is really friggin pretty. Like hooooly shit.

Romance! (Prince Included)

Wow! This one has it all for a typical shoujo-style yaoi! Sweet romance for the traditional romantic, a little non-con for the fetish-er, plot for the academic, and psychology for the human behaviour studier. And art for the eyes to glut upon!

Its very happily-ever-after, but not before the reader is taken on a journey of angst and ponderings. It's not uber-dramatic or original, so it won't stick long in my memory, but it is certainly an enjoyable quick read in the afternoon!

I had sensei's works a long time, stuffing in my pc. Then, yesterday I read it. And I cant believe I hadnt check it before. The art is incredible, she draws stunning gorgeous characters. They're not only awfully pretty, they're well worked on, with thoughts, personalities and psicological stuff well defined. And the plot is well designed, although is not a complex or complete one -I mean, its still this world, and they're only people passing by, and its not a big production like Loveless-, but she has quite a touching way to express feelings and wanderings....

Whatelse? Well, I think this manga has become on of my favourites among all my collection -and believe me, I have a huge increasing collection xD Like 600 mangas, more or less xD-

I highly recommend it. Trust me wink

The art is beautiful in this manga--there are flowing Fabio-like locks galore here lol it's interesting to see how the mangaka combined Indian and Greek aesthetics to invent Leo's "national style"

This manga is not 100% THE BEST, but there's definitely evidence that the mangaka was going for a deeper kind of story with injections of wisdom that were really kind of moving--I enjoyed this manga a lot because it wasn't entirely a cliche

Maruya sensei's art is just absolutely stunning and i think i've just found my new favourite mangaka. what makes sensei's work so perfect is that the storyline is gorgeous as well.
this story will get you hooked from the start (come on just look and the rating on this manga) and has the perfect amount of angst and sweetness.

Stunning art

Art. So. Beautiful. Haha, I normally don't like long hair on guys, but man, Leo and Baltes had some luscious locks, lol, and man, it suited them. All the characters are so beautifully drawn, and the expressions, and just everything- so gorgeous. But, it's not just the art- this is a really heart-warming story that's beautifully spun, with a good amount of character development for such a short piece. DO NOT SKIP THIS ONE! It's short, but the entire manga is so breathtaking (art, romance, emotions and psychology, just everything). Please, do yourself a favor and read this!

The plot was amazing, though I got bored at the last second chapter.
It's amazing how the author showed the different sides of the 2 main characters and how their love developed so fast yet it might not be accepted by the society.
Happy ending is such a plus!!!

i could just faint from the pretty. the story isn't quite my thing; too unrealistic while i am on a realism binge. and even if i were fancying fantasy, this is just not gonna do it for me; i am 100 years too old for stories about princes from far-away lands falling for the straight-talking commoner. but it's certainly well enough crafted for its type.

i don't really care about the story here, as long as it's not total crap. maruya kae could illustrate the phone book and i'd buy it. absolutely THE prettiest boys in BL land IMO.

I love this manga so far. Maruya Kae is definately a talented mangaka. I can't wait for D.P. to release more of this series, but when it comes out it will be a good one. The drawings are beautiful, and there is a new type of plotline despite the bishies. Truley a masterpiece.

I definately recommend this series for anyone who is looking for a story with an interesting twist and an uke struggling with his feelings.
