This is a great sequel, after Ayu's death, but really it's soo sad! Deaths at the spur of the moment of happiness, Bitter yet heartfelt. But reading this made me disappointed in Reina. How could she?! She just dumps her daughter, Ayu, and goes serving as a prostitute for money and meanwhile,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ayu dies because of earthquake. And I'm f*ckin frustrated at the grandma, how did she take care of Ayu all along?! Dropping her off at the evil cousin's house and knowing that she would get bullied yet shrugs off saying that "Oh, I'm sick."
luckily Yoshiyoki arrived, but damn that f*cking b*tchy cousin of Ayu's, bullying Ayu who is blind and hits her on the head that results in Ayu's death. Why does that b*tch get to live while Ayu has to die?! So unfair! But that's what's making this so traged, so thumbs up for the author again.

it was so sad.. i really want to cry but i just cant i really wish that the mangaka could have just a put abit of feelings here and there and i might have cried but no.. it just have to end..
*sigh* it was such a sad story..
Spoiler (highlight to view)
i think that the people dying shouldnt have died really.. i mean.. i think that the mangaka is making a gimmick out of it.. the more people dying.. the sadder the story gets.. thats what i think anyway.. and also! damn the bitch cousin of Ayu!! that was actually amzing people with that name just keeps dying! why is that??

anyway.. even though its still dramatic.. i still like it!

I do like this sequel of Aya's story as Yoshiyuki grew stronger and moved on in life in search of Reina. Its really a life lesson but also tragic at first. But i do like the story of this as its more positive at the end and Yoshiyuki did not chose to commit suicide in the end.

I can't express how heartbroken i was for Yoshiyuki!!
Yes yes, you have to read the prequel to understand anything! Seriously, to think that he would become such a handsome lad, i really wish his beloved Ayu was there to see him so grown up.
It was amazing, i've never read tragedy sequel/prequel related stories until this one it touched my heart so much.

The lengths he goes to try and understand Ayu's pain, it had me regretting her death every single page. And to think that little Ayu was so much like her mum's friend, not her mum (lawl i think something happened there coes it really doesnt seem to work out in reality)..

oh God, Ayu was such a strong girl. To be able to live with hope and sadness and understand that one day you have to let go.. To die with such a respectable manner. To leave Yoshiyuki in lost of another loved one.. This manga was just amazing..

Don't read this manga when you haven't read its prequel. You won't understand the main char at all then. Also little Ayu (the daughter of Ayu's friend Reina from the prequel) will play an important role in this.

Its tragedy is exaggerated, the same as in the prequel. But it isn't as sad and dramatic.
The pace of the story is quite fast and the TL of the scanlation full of mistakes (wrong wording) which make following the events unnecessary difficult.

This sequel of Yoshiyuki follows a similar path as Ayu from the prequel (from the emotional side). Seeing no meaning in life and thus unable to enjoy it he is in quite the same position as Ayu before and same as her he'll find something he wants to protect. Since he's not someone who talks that much and hasn't personal conversations this one isn't presented as much from the main character's emotional point of view as the prequel with Ayu.
The message is still coming through though.

Unlike elalendi below me I think that he realized a lot and had a personal progress forward at the end. It wasn't just that dramatic as Ayu's way of progress:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
He got back his laugh and his tears (basically his emotions) and he started to look at the sky again, which he refused to do after Ayu's death in the prequel

Now I'm waiting for Deep Love - Real to be scanlated :3

I just don't get it. Why did he go do hosting? Wasn't the whole point of Ayu dying was because she was selling her body for his life?

Besides this, I thought it was ok. I just wanted to know what happened with Yoshiyuki. There were some intense action-packed moments there so that made it worth reading. But I just didn't really understand... I mean, it ended without him having a dramatic realization or anything...

i read the prequel then this and i didn't even know i was crying till i touched my eyes. i was in a good mood before i read it, but now it's totally ruined. i like the ideas it tells u, but i don't think it was wise of me to read it when i was happy...

Deep Love was quite possibly one of the most powerful things I have ever read. However, Deep Love - Host seemed to lack something that the prequel had. Not to say it was necessarily bad, it just wasn't nearly as good.

its less smutty than the ones with the female main characters. this one is depressing but not as depressing as its prequel. its so dramatic tho. when one happy thing happens, something dark and heavy happens. its so depressing..
