There's Vinny, the gang leader, and his best friend and sidekick Sean. Skip and Dick are, respectively, the errand boys and the muscle of the gang. And there's Vinny's younger brother Kyle, whom Vinny raised from a baby after his stepfather took off and his mother died of drug addiction. Vinny also has a neat girlfriend, Sandy. Vinny is rabidly homophobic (besides having a hate-on for almost everyone else- doctors, police, social workers, the usual.) Kyle is gay and getting it on with Sean. Trouble is just around the corner. Trouble happens, but with a long fuse. Things aren't over when Vinny finds that Sean's been screwing his baby brother and beats him to a pulp.

well I agree that it needed to be longer.. but still, this was a rarely beautiful manga. The moments, psychological situations of the characters, were all defined very realistically. The sharp moments and the mangaka's way of describing them catches you thightly and gives a pain right through your chest.. at least this happened to me at the scenes where the tension was high.. x.x Very deep. I'm glad it ended this way too.. +recommended for the people who looks for a yaoi manga without lovey-dovey stuff.

just when I was settling in for a long series it's over ={ had all the makings of a long series...I was really starting to get into this story it might be a common storyline but it felt different to me- more intense maybe because of the art it just brings emotions to life...I though there would a long back story about how certain characters got together....there was a short explanation but it certainly could have been longer...geez i guess I'm saying I really liked it but there NEEDED TO BE MORE!!!!

Don't just go by the synopsis - i almost skipped this because the synopsis put me off a bit, all i could foresee was doom and gloom. But nope, it has many elements which make this a great read. First of all, it has all the angst and grit you'd expect from this sort of story, but that contrasts lovely with the relationship between kyle and dean. This story is also quite detailed and intricate at times despite its relatively short length. I like how clearly defined the characters become within the allotted time - they develop a surprisingly large amount of individuality and depth in such a short time. I really enjoyed this story, despite some of its darker themes.

One of the few yaoi that has managed to make me cry.

The art might take some getting used to but the story does make up for it!
I loved every second if it; only flaw - like usual - is that it's over too soon, wish it were longer!

the art is not the best but if you don't mind, you should try this manga.
the first time I read it, I stopped reading at chapter 2 because the plot was not interesting to me, I'm glad I read it again and finished it. The plot is actually very good, all the characters are not bad, everyone have their own roles, it's not just about 2 guys in love.
personally, I think Vinny is the best, the most lovable character, I wish to know more about his struggle to accept his little brother

I also wish this had been longer. It really felt like it could have been! That said, it was very good. Sad, but not soul crushingly depressing like some tragedies. Definitely suggest this for a quick, un-fluffy read.
