The Art and Extras   
Rating: N/A

Honestly, the Jewish-Nazi-prison-play is something that I am uncomfortable with, and it is also somewhat disheartening to see this manga take the cliched route out of the beautiful maze that's setup. The facial expressions, story flow, and coherence is well done, if a bit choppy are two three points. Moreover, this manga is certainly unique in its juxtaposing the comically drawn-extras with the main story, which is an excellent illustration of how art style very much influences how certain images are understood, because the extras are by no means any less serious than the main story line. Thus, I was expecting a different ending.

i don't know why, but i just feel their relationship is just too sad. i don't know whether there's love or hate, but there's certainly obsession. goddamn i'm supposed to feel hot about the prison play, but all i feel is depressed and melancholic. i guess i can't get off to war.

i really liked this manga its very twisted and compelling,this mangaka's art is amazing as usual,the whole nazi/jew love theme is quite interesting.i must say though i loved the last story "Netsu no Ori" the most.hope there was more to it,it seems really interesting and has potential,i wanted to know more about that couple and what would happen to them.i thought it was too interesting to just end there and i really felt sorry for the uke sad did he or did he not love his capture? definitely recommended but i wanna see more of Netsu no Ori T.T

I feel like the words beautiful and special are used way too much for many different things, but this words truly describe this story. When reading this, I actually felt something building up inside me. I don't know how to say it but there is an indescribable effect which does not happen very often.

I guess this has to do partly with the fact that this kind of tragedy happened in real life and we get to see it from this characters. We can see the aftermath of war and how hate destroys people who could have been happy and healthy.

But I think the real reason why I loved this manga was because I actually felt that the two main characters (the doctor and Nazi official) loved each other, deeply. Yes, there was torture but this was just the horrible truth of how someone can change from war and from brutal childhood. Twisted minds can be created from healthy ones, but I know their love was real.

I feel very emotional when I think about this story.

Despite the brutality of it, I found this story truly tragic, heart-wrenching and beautiful. It's twisted but amazing. The only criticism I'd have to offer was how come there isn't any more!? Especially when it seemed the main story would continue... When I saw it was completed I almost didn't believe it... Why?

this manga is very different.... i know that the rape and trapped themes are wrong for most people, but i really enjoy them for they get me the thrill feeling.... still, i love this manga for it's pretty twisted in the first few chapters about the first couples... <3 <3

i also enjoyed Chrysalis a lot too and would loved it more if there was more of this couple...

Love it. And that's just how it is.
Such humiliation, pain and control. For a nazi to be raped over and over again and kept hidden by a jew, being it's uke...!
It's actually a really sad story, but also filled with love. It's beautiful. What are the limits to what you can do for love? How far can someone go to keep that one special person?

Claiming revenge, Elijah thought he hated the uke because he forgot how much he was actually loved. Or rather, he wants to hate the Major, but can't. So he can't let go of him, and doesn't realize it is love instead of hate. And when he does, he lets him go, even though they're feelings are mutual.
Meanwhile, the uke never admit he loves the seme because being tortured by him hurts his pride. But when they get apart, he feels left, and finally cries.

Even so, they use the excuse of domination and imprisonment quite to their favour, since it's the only way they can be together while not having to struggle with their own feelings, blaming it all on the circunstances.

Apart from all the good stuff, I agree with everybody else about the lenght (it should be longer!!) and about the lack of the seme's motivation of personality. I would've liked to see more of their pasts.

Oh! And those extra little stories where they're cat and dog are kind of confusing, because even though they aren't supposed to be really a part of the story and just to be cute, it kinda IS part of it anyways, so I don't know if I should take it into consideration or not...and it totally changes the understanding of it as a whole.

Although it is quite weird to say rape is beautiful, but the emotions and what was not said was definitely beautiful. The main story is only three chapters and I thought that was too short. I was hoping for a bit more. And the three extras were atrocious. If they were cute or funny I would have liked it, but they did nothing to add to the story so I was a bit disappointed.

This is the first yaoi manga I read that gave me hope for the genre.

It seems off to describe a manga filled with extremely graphic kinky rape as beautiful, but Zion no Koeda is. Not just the art, although that is gorgeous. Inariya treats her sensitive topic with intelligence and sensitivity and manages to make the sex seem less like porn and more like just another heartrending, tragic part of the plot (until the saltwater pumping).

The only gripe I have (other than the saltwater pumping) is the extras. They're not clever or interesting or cute. They're gross. If you like superdeformed furry porn, whatever. But superdeformed furry porn with totally unecessary random facts about actual animal sex? That tries to be cute and funny in a manga where cute and funny seems as out-of-place as a fart in church, and about as clever? Inariya could have spent the time she wasted drawing those abominations to make this story longer than three chapters.

This is the most disturbing story of Inariya Fusanosuke.
I must confess...I love this mangaka. I can understand that this one is not for the faint hearted. It's twisted, and only Inariya can pull it off. The lines between victim and aggressor become blurred. Disturbed minds, sadism, lust and pathological need...and no love, or perhaps a glimmer of it? But we forgive her, because of the historical setting, the way she writes, her beautiful art, and... may be because some of us are a bit twisted too?
I found the extras a bit shocking after the realism of the first two chapters. I suppose she is just reminding us that this is only manga after all!
