I consider myself one of those people who has read so much yaoi, that nothing comes off as strange anymore.

But this in a way I can't even describe.

The 3 stories I could find on the internet really don't have much going for them except the art.
I usually like strange gore, and dark stories... but this was just gore and sex with no plot or character development at all...

certainly don't think akari_mizunashi is right...mild gore this was not...another collection of dull yaoi stories...certainly not! you give ppl the wrong idea....the way ou say it you present it to be just another over-cliched yaoi and tis is far from that!

it was a bit unsettling...and funny at the same time...i don't really think these two stories scanlated deserve an 8 but i gave it 8 due to the manga offering something different to horror...funny but a bit unsettling and scary at the same time...hard to achieve

the art is a bit incompetent and not very skilled but the ambience is there and the art does create the atmosphere many panels you think ur reading a comic from a low-production fanzine but that adds to the unsettling and the peculiar feelings...

my favourite was dedicated body...random,unskilled,scary,funny,weird horror story...i wish more were available from this mangaka but i'm quite thankful i got to read even these two chapters smile

A bunch of tales steeped with a dosage of black humor and morbidity. If you're a lover of horror or psychological intrigue based on these traits, then you might want to check out the other stories in the "Black humor" category.

From the gorgeously goth cover, remniscient of 1920s commercial art, I expected a something extra from this volume. What I got was yet another dull collection of dull yaoi stories that attempt to be add some edginess to their stereotypes with bondage imagery and mild gore. It didn't work.

Wow! I love the first story! Kept Boy is not eurogore or horror, but it is definitely yaoi and mature. The uke is a bit shota-ish in appearance, but knows fully what he is doing. In fact, the uke is the one controlling the actual relationship, in a bizzare sort of way. There could have been more to explain his motivation, to add to the reader connection.
The seme is done with such an interesting contrast - he's disturbing and predatory-like (looks like a young Robert Smith of The Cure) and yet bizarrely, I couldn't look away, and I didn't dislike him. (Think: Lullaby).
Dedicated Body was...unique. I didn't like it as much as the first one, but it did intrigue me and I couldn't help but understand and want to read about all the characters. The boy was the creepiest and most disturbed of them all. (Think: Antisocial personality Disorder = lack of feeling.)
All in all, I hope the rest is picked up, because it's good to have a variety of offerings in many different genres and subjects. The art is very unique as well: all dark and early 90s-ish, yet with a 1920s 'feel.'
