From Yen Press:

Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches.

As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named “Zess,” whose face tugs on Yuki’s memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death.

But when Yuki’s compassion leads him to disobey Zess’s order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he’s even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?

This is probably my favorite manga right now! I love it so much! All the character are strong and likable and not annoying.

Yuki, for being the main "hero" is suprisingly not irritating, even for being a girl in his past lol. I think he is headstrong, but a little confused at times, especially over his feelings for Luka. I think he brings great life to the the story.

Luka and Takashiro are so incredibly sexy!! It's nosebleed good! lol. Their power struggle, to me, is funny. No one really knows exactly what Luka is. Know one knows how old he actually is. His feelings for Yuki remains "unknown". Takashiro his Yuki's "brother". He has that certain savoufare that makes his character irrisistable lol(at least for me...^_^). At times he does play the "doting older bother" card, and he becomes a very sweet character.

I love Tskumo and Tooko, especially Tooko, i think she is just amazing and Tsukumo is just so spacy at times that he is just hilarious. I love the relationship between the two as well. And for the record....They are NOT twins!! They are siblings, but not twins. Tooko is OLDER!! The manga tells you that! The manga never says that they are twins!!

Hotsuma brings good humor to the story along with his relationship with Shuusei. Shuusei is very mature and a very sweet character. I like the hidden affection shown between these two and so far are probably one of my favorite pairings.

I personally love the two new partners Senshiro and Kuroto(featured on the cover of vol.6). I don't know too much about them yet. I'm still learning, but they seem very much on their toes and very strong.

The art is beautiful and the story line is very interesting. With each volume comes new characters and a new twist that keeps you guessing. This manga is amazing, please give it try! I highly reccomend it!!

And I saw on the main website that it is to be made in an anime!! So when it debuts, check it out and support UraBoku and Odagiri-Sensei!

Ok, so I saw the anime first and then started reading the manga. I LOVED it, maybe a bit slow in the romance category but that was just fine with me, it emphasized Luka and Yuki's relationship to be pure and innocent. Yuki was a girl in his previous life and Luka and Yuki were then in love, but in this life Yuki was born to be a boy but Luka still loves him, doesn't matter to him if its a man or a woman as long as it's Yuki (cheesy but touching none the less) kinda reminds me of the manga BRONZE minus the sex. wink The plot is fast paced with exciting characters, good action and great art! Those of you who are averse to shounen ai, please DON'T ignore this series. Unlike other shounen ai or yaoi, where it's always about pushy sex, this one is about emotions, adventure and LOOOOVE biggrin The characters are super cool and not to mention extremely hot (;]) you will grow to love them.

I've read this manga up until nineth volume and I think I'll keep reading it.
The plot has some runfast and stop and there are entire volumes dedicated to something else that the plot, but is quote good and interesting. The characters presentation is detailed but needs four or five volumes: maybe too much?
Even if Yuki was a woman in his previous life, this is clearly a shounen ai (or at last the shounen ai subplot is very strong and not only for Yuki/Zess but also for other couples, I'd dare to say also for the twisted relationship between Reiga and Takashiro, But people that doesn't like shounen-ai can always look at those relationship like a strong friendship or love and hate feelings ). The manga is way more funny and Yuki is quite less dummy than in the anime. I mean he's cute and lovable but sometimes he seems too slow.
Anyway there are also characters appealing for someone like me who likes more complex/twisted and ironic characters like Takashiro, Tachibana, Reiga ( set aside the ironic part) himself and so on.
I think that this manga is worth of reading and I'll recomend it.

There's more of a reason to Yuki being reincarnated as a boy than you think, not just for the shounen-ai subplot. True, he's regarded as "cute" and a bit androgynous, but the real reason that the original Yuki was reincarnated as a guy is because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it was her last dying wish to do so. The manga even says that she was treated as a "princess" and no one could get close to her, causing an immense feeling of loneliness (which the present-day Yuki even feels). Being reincarnated as a boy took away some of that "delicate/princess" feeling to him (although the guardians are still fiercely protective of him). And the fact that she wanted to forget everything that happened also contributed to this.

im a die hard yaoi fan girl and the only shoujo ive ever read was n0.6 but i love this manga.luka is so hot and i love shusei and tsukomu reminds me of zero from vampire night.this manga is good for anyone.but i want more shounen ai.yuki has already admitted he wants to see luke but he should get his memory back already so they can be together. i dont really like yuki that much but luka makes up for fav couple apart from the main one should be hotsuma and shusei and i want reiga and takashiro too.

I like it a lot, AWESOME! I'm really into it and however this story does have a plot and a splendid one at that. I LOVE THE ART. Just beautiful I tell ya! Many gorgeous bishies if anyone's interested ;) Some of the art honestly remind me of I've found more then what the chapter releases are (3 chapters released but i've found more raw scans) so that's why I'm more intertwined and honestly it's all good to me the story. Give it a shot, I recommend it!

Not mind blowing but not as painful to read as I'd thought it would be. I didn't really like some of the other manga by this mangaka so I was a little hesitant to read this. But it's a surprisingly easy read, I recommend it.
The plot gets bogged down occasionally and they talk...a lot. Plus I honestly couldn't care less about Yuki's drama with
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
, it was so cliche and predictable it'll be near the top of my list of predictable plot twists if I ever make one. It's kinda annoying, but not annoying enough to stop me from reading. The only interesting characters are Shuusei, Hotsuma and of course Luka. Yuki's pretty bland, very typical goody doer but at least he stands up when it counts. Everyone else falls into "meh" category.

I'm sure if this was one of the first manga/anime I've ever read/watched I'd be more impressed. But as a seasoned fan, it was entertaining enough. A good time waster. Finding out about Luka and Yuki's past is what'll keep me coming back if it ever starts up again. It's what makes this "okay" manga "good".

Oh and @Tommygurl take a chill pill. This manga isn't worth getting that serious about. You come off as one of those weird people who hate straight relationships. As a fujoshi I understand why it's sometimes less interesting to read about straight romance than BL. But hate is unnecessary. Even the implied incest, which creeps me out as much as the next person, isn't that disgusting or taken seriously in this manga. In fact it's pretty much explained that all the partners can't help it.

I LOVED this series (Although it tooks 2YEARS for a new chapter -.-) I saw it and was like "psha, is weird, I no read this!" BUT I got the manga and started to read and was like "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME" I love it so much, the plot! Characters!( LUKA)! Everything about was amazing. I didn't even mind that it was shounen-ai, which I hardly ever read.
My advice to everyone. READ THIS. YOU WILL LOVE IT.

It kinda sucks tbh. They say hindsight is 20/20, and I've gotta agree. I got into this manga back in early high school when I was still in my tamer BL days. The art was really pretty and I thought that the main pair was like, totes cute omg. Today, I saw that it finally got updated again after years and decided to get myself caught up on it again. Now, that I've got more experience and more reading under my belt, I can firmly say that this manga is lack-luster. The only thing it really has going for it is the art. Both the plot and the BL is half-assed. Why is the protagonist such a mary-sue? He's ultra powerful and everything always goes well for him. Everyone loves him. Those who hate him end up liking him. A magically hot boy shows out of no where and bends backwards to please him. He discovers that he has amazing secret powers. Like, seriously? I get that cliches are a staple of manga but damn this manga rolled up all of them and slapped them into one story. Also, most bland personality ever. How many times has the innocent, slightly naive but also determined protag archetype been used by now? And oh my god don't even get me started on chapter 52. HO-LEE-SHiITAKE MUSHROOMS. Is this author for real? So---SPOILERS---

Yuki finds out that his friends has lied to him about the truth behind him being sent to an orphanage. Apparently, his mom volunteered to host the child of god and give birth to him knowing that she would die. This sounds like the perfect set up for some good ol' angst, grieving, drama, and character growth, right? LOL NOPE. It all gets resolved in 10 pages or so. Everyone confesses, apologizes, and then says that his mom absolutely loved him, wasn't forced at all, and peacefully accepted her fate. Now that this life changing revelation has been resolved in the span of 5 minutes everyone can just go yolo swaggity to what they were doing in the first place. Hooray. Honestly tho wtf? I've seen deeper plotlines and drama in fanfictions. Hell, I've seen more nuanced characters in the Twilight series. For real tho, if you're over the age of 14 don't read this. It doesn't do shounen ai very well, it doesn't do plot well, it doesn't even do character development well. Basically, some one took a low-tier story and mixed it with low-tier characterization to bake a piping hot mediocre manga. Don't waste the precious hours of your life reading this when you could be reading something better.
