Tho the story was not properly developed, but it's great for a 6 chapter manga!!! I loooooove how gentle the seme is and how wild the uke is lol. The emotion was properly conveyed (tho i don't get why he the seme had to leave exactly AFTER the incident happenedconfused Idk tho) but great stuff overall!!!

Still moves me

I read this 6-7 years ago and I really liked it, I'm pretty sure I've even re-read it back then (perhaps more than once, haha). Maybe it's no good for others, but to this day it can still move me. Back then, I probably cried my heart out; today is just this suffocating and painful feeling, but at the same time it makes me happy and content.

While I agree that on the surface this seems pretty cliche, it really does have a different viewpoint than most. The issues are definitely over the top, but the thing I've always taken from it(and the reason it it one of my favorites) is that although it may not be an exceptionally realistic look at trauma, it IS a realistic view of healing. Love doesn't just fix things. Having someone who understands you can be a great source of strength, but healing comes from within. That is what is happening in this story, and I love that. I think the epilogue is my favorite part for this reason. It shows that they've both made a lot of progress, but they're still dealing with their own demons and may always be.

To me this isn't a dark story. It's a story about hope, strength, and moving forward one day at a time.

I just can't believe I've been postponing this since..... forever, was it? I think it was the cover that frightened me, ahah. It was - by no means - a nice read. More like painful, really, but perhaps the kind of pain Chiaki would like, the one that pulls on your heartstrings and fills you with some kind of cold, sharp warmth. I agree that there are a lot of clichés going on, but the thing is you won't feel the need to stop and think and care for them if you get to grasp these characters genuinely. The boys, I mean. I found them so painfully and deliciously morose, yet sweet and always consistent in their wickedness, I really didn't care for clichés. Expect, perhaps, for that of the step-dad, who really needed to be fleshed out more. He was as flat and hard as a brick in the end of the day. No pun intended.

I still liked it very, very much. The art is lovely.

Really Good Hurt/Comfort Manga

I really enjoyed this one smile
I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to read a yaoi that is a bit of a tear-jerker.
It deals with some really dark themes so it's not for the faint hearted.
The relationship of the two characters really grows as the series the beginning I found it hard to believe that the characters were going to find comfort in eachother but the story progressed so naturally that by the end it was totally obvious to me smile
The reason I gave this 9/10 instead of the full 10 was simply because the art is not something I would usually look's a bit older in style than some yaoi, and the dark themes can be a little unsettling.
But yeah...I loved it! By the end, it was really cute and it is one of the few yaoi where the love between characters is definitely evident :3.

Touching...Made me cry! And leaves an impression

Some people might say that this manga is too dark...but i think it was the most touching yaoi manga i've ever read. It had a perfect balance between the hotness and the plot. It actually had an interesting plot, unlike other yaoi mangas where they have nothing but sex the whole time. But the sex scenes were also very sexy smile

And most importantly, Kawai sensei did a very great job in flowing the story so that the readers can really see the growth in each of the characters emotional problems from their pasts and growth in their relationship. This had some scenes where it made me cry because i pitied the characters so much, but at the end i cried again because I was so happy for them. Even after i finished, i kept reading it over and over. It really leaves a impression in your mind and keeps you thinking throughout the night.

The only thing is that i wish it could have been longer to really show the details of the twos relationship.

Overall, I really recommend this book to anyone who loves a touching story with a happy ending!

I love yaoi and have read many so believe me when I say that this yaoi manga is one of the good ones out there. It is dark but the whole point is that it gets better smile The love story between the two main characters is very real and believable. I saw it this way; they saved each other from darkness. The ending was also very sweet and I felt satisfied. I recommend.

I don't understand how this series got such high ratings. It's below average in all aspects (thus, my rating is 4; though I considered rating it 1 just to try and balance things a little). Art is nothing special, sketchy and rough, there wasn't a single panel that made me stop reading and just watch and admire for a while like it happens often with other manga. Plot consists mainly of clichés following neatly one after another. Dark past, childhood traumas, abusive lover, gentle lover, cold family, loving family, self abuse, being abused by others... it would take 10+ volumes to develop such a content heavy story properly.
All in all, not a series I would recommend.

For all the good reviews on this series, read them with a critical eye. I'm not usually a big reader of yaoi, but I can usually put aside my reservations as long as the storyline is interesting. I even overlooked the part about one of the guys being in a sexual relationship with his step-dad and still gave this a shot, but it's not nearly as good as it should be. The plot felt so...I don't know, cliche? The themes in this story are by no means original, but even so, I felt that they could have been used better. It attempts to aim at being "realistic" by giving an emotional depth to the characters, but quite honestly, it didn't do it for me.

There's certainly emotion in here, but it's overdone and too much. I've seen similar themes done in other stories that presented the theme WAY better. The beginning and the epilogue were the best parts for me. Everything else was totally unnecessary.

BTW. What's the tragedy tag for? I don't understand what the tragedy is. Is this referring to the two guys' "tortured pasts"?
