Great angst story!

I really loved this story because of how it touched my emotions and made me feel so sorry for Kenichi. He was such a sweet young man and Chihiro was very cruel to him, emotionally, at times. This story is a great read for angst lovers.

... how bad this was and made the mistake of reading it again. The rating is just for the first volume (Pure) as I didn't bother with the second.

But really aside from it being pretty boring, as a lot of people mentioned, the kid* was an irritating crybaby. And the guy... well, he seemed level headed at the beginning, but in the end... just a jealous and selfish a-hole
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(I mean, what he did could easily slip into the realm of domestic abuse - he made the asocial kid quit his job so the kid became even more isolated and dependent on him, he basically forced the kid into having sex by taking advantage of his feelings... and all the while he admitted that his feeling weren't really that deep.)


*Whoops, he is actually 22 yo? He doesn't look or act like it though xD

In the end, the art is the only good thing about this (and the reason I rate this a little higher than Shinjo Mayu stuff) and even so... the artist did better job with Corsair.

And just a last thing: It always fascinates me how people say that something is no good and then rate it somewhere between 3 and 6. On a scale from 1 to 10, 6 means 'above average' and 3 and 4 are something like 'it was ok'.

i actually think this manga is quite sweet, Takane is such a cold guy in the beginning and he seems like the type that is never serious about a lover and even the type that lies to keep a lover happy but throughout the manga you can see Kenichi pureness start to affect him and i believe that he truely grows to love Kenichi. In the end, he even (spoiler) asks Kenichi to become a part of his family, which as most people know is a way that gay men use to "marry" eachother by joining their partners family register. (spoiler end) it could have been longer though, i would have liked to see the characters much more fleshed out. i know there is a novel version to this manga and i would love to read it if its ever translated...

Typical BL tropes, forgettable eventually, but not boring!

A sexy, compelling read! I recommend reading "Cute" first--"Pure" makes far more sense if you read it in that order.

The characters all seemed a bit compressed and rushed, but I still connected with them and their developing feelings. The art was expressive at times and flat at other times. Overall, though, I gobbled each couple's story up and enjoyed the reading time immensely!

boring and seems disjoint

If not for reading the next installment which is Cute, I won't bother my time on this. Geez, the story seems disjoint or it is the fault of translators? I'm not sure about that. The characters seem detach. It's like the story was rushed and was going nowhere after that. In short, a total bore. The art isn't even amazing to begin with.

it was relatively .. bad.

the scenario had potential- but it was just empty and pointless.. the seme type just looks angry all the time and the uke doesn't do anything but tremble with lust.. strange.

If I didn't listen to the third dramacd, I would have given 6.5. But that not being the case, I must say I hate this story with a passion. Chihiro is a cruel guy, and Sakuya really irritated the hell out of me. He's weak, yet greedy and has no backbone at all.

I added drama as a genre for this series. The story start off with lot of angst, unrequited love, indecent affairs and drama. Not really my cup of tea but the latter half of this manga was good. It focus more on development and less angst. The characters are somewhat unlikable, a weak/pushover uke and an idiot/cold seme. They change though so don't worry. Overall mediocre story and art was awesome. Kinda lost my will reading the sequel.

Eek, I remembered loving a BL manga called Kawaii Hito. It turns out it's the one by Yamakami Riyu LOL.

This one, however, is an angst fest. It's typical for this author. I have no respect for the ukes in her stories, but am fascinated by the semes. Mainly because I fantasize about spanking them. They're all so very cool, and the one in the second vol is a bit of a jerk. Boring story. The first vol was kind of cute though.
