The Other Side of My Review   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

The third and first stories were quite enjoyable. Particularly the third. The Other Side of the Sky was the most compelling, in my opinion. However, I must say,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a similar scenario happened in Like as the Time Will Come When it Will Rain. This author has a thing for characters conveniently losing their memory. While it didn't really take away from the story for me, I hope it's not a constantly reoccurring theme. But it's a wonderful thing, isn't it? Outside of losing his memory I don't see how that character would have lived a happy life. It's sad, though kind of necessary.

Show Me Heaven seemed more "typical" for lack of a better word. It would make for a cute anime but was somewhat boring to read after how interesting The Guardian was. The Cosmos story... we're not even going to talk about that. I think it was a joke/parody. If I had to take that story seriously I would have to drop my rating significantly.

The stories were very gloomy along with art. The first begins counting as the protagonist died ... I didn't like this story to be confusing mixed with dark. The second was that I liked the most, i was cheering pro Shinya and i found it so cute he leading the bouquet to all sides. In the third I felt so sorry for the boy who was raped but i liked the end that because he can forget everything and became a people good ... The room I have no words to say ...

Only the cover story counts as tragedy, and even then, it's light. I really liked the characters, too bad there wasn't anymore.

The second and third stories were nice. I did feel sorry for the leads in the third, but that kind of plot always makes me feel so. But the fourth story? LOL What was I even reading? Looking at the cover and the artist, you'd never think there was a big hairy bara bear as a character.

My favorite story was the second one... Your typical bl story.
It was a cute story and I liked both main characters so only for that one I give a rating 10. The other stories are ok, the last one was really weird but kind of funny.

I've ever read. I mean...what? The last story REALLY threw me for a loop lol but the third story had me going through a whole crazy mix of emotions and made me switch sides multiple times. You'll understand when you read it. Wow. This is a memorable one and a keeper--give it a read!

I really liked the stories. I especially liked Story 2 and 3. Some of the others say that story 2 is the weakest but i have to disagree with that if they mean in terms of the story itself. If its in terms of how deep the story was, i agree it was the weakest out of the first 3.

The last one was funny but i dont think i would read it again. The first one was confusing to me, so i cant really say if it was good or bad. I'll probably try to read it again and try to grasp the meaning of it.

Do I recommend this: Yes

I swear the last story "Chance encounter in the cosmos" is a parody for Maiden Rose lmfao. You have the main guy who's so pretty and in one panel you can see a flower drawn above his head (so totally like Taki and add to that the faces he makes during sex). Then you have the fugly other guy whose name is Klaus (yeah, Klaus lol). All the emphasis on his dick and fingers size and how huge he is and how fugly and how he takes on the pretty guy so screams of Klaus Von Wolfstadt to me. That Maiden Rose's Klaus is so much better looking than this Klaus though XD
So yeah, absolutely brilliant story. Made me go aww and eww and whaa the whole time XD

The main story "the Guardian" was... amazing. I love how this mangaka unfolds the events of everything. It kept me intrigued and guessing till the very end.

"Sora no Uragawa" was my favorite. Great story and again how all the events unfolded was brilliant. I absolutely loved the ending. It was realistic and satisfying to me.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'd have hated it if Tamotsu was forgiven this easily by Satoshi in the end. He's going to suffer from the consequences in every single day from now on. It's very sad and horrible when you think about it, but this is the best outcome imo for everyone who was involved with this story.

"show me heaven" was the weakest one in the stories but I still enjoyed it immensely. It was light and sweet unlike the other two darker stories.

the stories amazed me. the mangaka was a great storyteller when i read yaoi the last thing that i expect is unpredictability cause i right now only read it for the boys xD haha that was the last thing that i wouldve said a year ago bit here we are xD i guess that yaoi just finds you my friends!~! biggrin

the first story was.. so.. i dont know how to say it. i cant say that it was beautiful but that was how i saw it and the way it unfolded. i am really falling in love with the storytelling!~!

the second story was just refreshing and i love men in suits, the formal, strict types, yup love em and the monkey like types.. would kill for them, this is like the summation of all my types minus the prostitution bit smile which thankfully wasnt emphasized.

the third story has got to be the one that gripped me. i wanna have a favorite but i loved them all! (even the Cosmos bit XD) for some reason i really enjoyed this and the feeling of salvation at the end.. sigh.. but i was kindda biting my finger while reading this so.. ahem.

the fourth story was just so funny xD i dont know what i should feel i was just laughing! and yeah.. i was just sitting here and thinking that must be fun xD also i kindda noticed that it has the longest sex scene so hooray for ugly peoples biggrin

another thing that i love about this is the fact that the male parts werent drawn too clearly, its just turns me off for some reason, i like it more when theres shading and when its leave it to your imagination smile my kind of manga, this one.
