From ShoujoMagic:
A series of non-linear and interrelated stories filled with bishies and angst!
Houjou Academy is a private school, isolated from the rest of the world and attended by the heirs of rich and noble bloodlines. At the center of everything is the first son of the Hanabusa family, Kinu. Through direct or indirect involvement, he is responsible for the scars carried by the students of Houjou Academy--he is like their God. The cycle of base desire and higher love begins with the introduction of an unsullied girl named Nanaha, whose denial of Kinu's casual touch causes him to reevaluate his perception of women, and he cannot help but leave a scar on her as well...

I think the smut is getting boring, if its just random stories and couples
being thrown at you. This manga was a very disappointing word compared
to the rest of mashin sensai's work. Gave me a huge headache when it didn't
make any sense at all..

This manga is one giant soap opera. It's the worst kind of overly complex, cloying drama, so bad they couldn't even think of putting this on TV. And I love it. Love love love love! I like to re-read it late at night while I'm alone with my dogs and sniffle in their fur over all the improbable uber-tragic happenings. It's the kind of thing that I could never admit to liking if it weren't for internet anonymity.

It's all very much in the style of the author, who seems to like churning out this sort of tear-soaked smut. Bless her for it!

Totally hooked on this one, at first i was hesitant but you can easily get wrapped up because it has a good story line and the art is great too, lots of bishies. Too bad we cannot seem to find the rest anywhere....

i personally thought it was pretty good. the characters all have developed pasts and personality that befits them. each have lived through different circumstances, but all are connected in someway or another. i'd say this manga is random, but tastefully done so.

This is the worst manga ive ever read in my life and ive read alot of mangas and alot of crappy ones but this one takes the cake. to all the people that gave this a 10 R u crazyyyconfused?? it jumped around so much i kinda kept track but everything happened so fast, the smut sucked, the story there is none. if it couldve been better if the story was more drawn out but it was rushed and sucked big time and the art yuck!!! i couldve drawn this get this horrible crap off the market PLEASE DO NOT READ you will be disappointed

I was kinda reluctant to read this because of all the negative comments but actually it was worth my time. I havent read a heartwrenching smut for quite some time and this is just, purely dramatic. Don`t let the art put you off. For me, I`ve read some of the author`s works before so I ont mind the weird looking figures but once you`re into the story, you just gotta love it.
