This is one of the best stories that’s a novel that I enjoy in a very long time. I enjoy the characters, i enjoy the story. I don’t think it’s overrated at all as many don’t know much about it. The author is wonderful and this story is no different

S is a nice read with fairly interesting characters and a decent story line. I haven't read very many yaoi novels but I do read a lot in general and I must say, this novel seems to be overrated. To be fair, there might not be better yaoi novels around and some of the writer's vision might have been blurred in translation, but still, compared to some of the other manga out there, this series falls short of expectations.

Amazing! Captivating! Flawless!

Lets begin with the fact that I'm not really into novels. I usually just read the famous one and really REAALLYY slowly. But for this novel, it wasn't the same thing.
S. Well the first thing that came to my mind when I heard the title was sadism. So I didn't really look into it just cause of that. I didn't even bother to read the summary.
Then after I ran out of yaoi manga, I thought about coming back to this again since it was so famous. I read the categories, the reviews and the summary for the first volume. I was instantly captivated. I wanted to read it no matter what so I bought it from emanga for like 5 bucks each which is pretty cheap.
When I started reading volume 1, I wasn't that impressed. It was slow. Wordy and just not enough BL going on. Being honest volume 1 took me the longest to read which was about a day and a half. Though it was wordy it was good. Midway through it gets real good.
From volume 2 on it gets so good, I can't even put it in words. The mystery, the romance, the twists. Everything is just amazing and out standing. As you read more, it gets better. It takes you away from reality.
Like I mentioned before, I'm not a fast reader but this novel proved me wrong. I finished the last 3 volumes in 2 days. It just wouldn't leave it alone. I read everywhere I got a chance.
If you're thinking just cause this novel is licensed and you don't wanna go through the trouble of buying it youre not gonna read it, you're missing out a lot. This novel is worth every cent paid for it. The author truely deserves it.
Do not miss out this master work! It's amazing and whoever reads it will not regret it. You have my word x)

I really wanted to read this, but didn't have the funds for the hard copies. Thankfully they're up in the e-store for half the cost.

The novels start off slow (volume 1 is too wordy if you ask me, but I guess we do need the background), but once it gets going, it's a very good read. I like Shiiba, he's pretty stubborn when it comes to justice so his growth over the story is welcome. Munechika is slightly mysterious; they keep stressing that he's a very important player in the Yakuza, yet they insist he's not involved in that world. It's almost like they wanted him to be a "legal" Asami Ryuuichi.

The art was great, though some of the chosen scenes were a little odd. The translation was also great, I'm glad it shied away from the cheesy euphemisms that filled Sleeping with Money. I didn't like how they had to re-explain S work in every novel, though. Most people don't pick up number 2 or 3 before 1, so it seemed like filler.

My Favourite out of all the BL novels that I've read!

I just love everything about this series, from the main characters to the side/supporting characters are all very engaging and lovable. The storyline is amazingly deep and twisted unlike the cliché cardboard cut-out plots and twists that you’d normally see in yaoi. I just simply love it!! The art is also freaking amazing.

I downloaded the first volume to check this out, but it was just soooo good I felt bad for downloading it so I bought all the 4 volumes straight away to support this very talented author, who is now one of my favourites!

these novels were addictive (to say the least)... i bought the first one, read it, and could not wait for the others to arrive >.< i read the last 3 in 5 days, and all this is due to the fact that relationships are not shallow, ans all the characters are given such a strong personalty, aside from being accompanied by an original and beautiful plot and gorgeous illustrations...

This novels have gotten me obsessed. I can't not think about this novels when thinking about yaoi because they go hand in hand in my head. What I mean is that this is the perfect yaoi story smile

Beautiful story, erotic, sexy, nice character development, hot, addictive and wonderful are just some of the words to describe this novel. I recommend it to every yaoi fan because this is truly what yaoi should be about or at least for me. A true piece of work.

After reading all four volumes, all i can say is WOW! it was absolutely an amazing novel from starting to end! I couldn't put it down once i started reading it. And i have read many yaoi novels before but hands down, this one is probably the best one so far! I It has all the element a reader could ask for. I definitely recommend this one! biggrin The romance between Shiiba and Munechika was so heart warming, i loved their relationship from starting to end.

Absolutely the best japanese light novel i've read to date. The intricacy and detail, the plot and scenarios, the characters and their backgrounds, the drama, the sex and the romance all collide to create the perfect story... it had me hooked by chapter five and i devoured the rest in under a 24 hour span of time (started last night finished just now, would have read it even faster if not for irl responsibilities xD). I pretty much fell in love with Munechika and Shiiba's relationship, both the starting point and especially the ending point. There were alot of moments where i got very emotional, caught up in the story, i felt anger, sorrow and warmth, i even almost cried once. I really cant sing the praise of these novels loud enough.
