Hmm..there's nothing "yaoi" about the main story except for the one shot. Really. If I have to say, it's nothing like shounen-ai as well. There's no romance or anything like that. It just shows the past of the main characters, how they get through, how they feel like, what happened to them and all. And it's surprisingly very short. I don't really get what the whole story is about. I kinda liked the one shot, which is way much better than the main story.

The main story was very disappointing. It left lots of unanswered questions and it was plain boring. The oneshot was just cute enough that I'm not completely regretting reading this manga.

The main story was okay. The kid was...uninteresting. The other two were cool, but not enough time was spend on them. And I did NOT understand the whole "dressing like a girl" thing in the main story... Weird.

The extra was cute. I loved the question at the end! "Since you're eyes are blue, does everything look blue to you?" Hahaha!

I really liked both Testsu, for his passionate love for life, indomitable spirit with youthful bounceback, and his belief in himself; and Shino, for his mature but fatalistic-realism approach to survial and life. Shino, although severely broken by a largely unexplored tragedy, still mangaes to survive in a violent world as only he knows how. The youthful innoncence of Tetsu allows him to gain back the humanity he was slowly losing.

This story really doesn't delve deep into the tragedies of both character's pasts, but it only covers the here and now in a very poetic interlude.

The eros-type romance is minimal and not between Shino and Tetsu the child, but Shino and the only man who he lets into his personal sphere as an adult. One chapters details the childhood friends' short-lived but pivotal for Shino's life "romance" as children.

The story was disappointing as far as a "finished" feel. Most of the questions raised are never answered. The main question of the choice Tetsu is going to make in his life, is the one that is focused on and answered well.

Castilla reviewed seperately.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i didnt like Shino he was such a hypocrite. how can he criticize others when he makes a living off murdering people? and whats sick is they he thinks its ok to kill people because the emperor feels they need to die. he cant even choose on his own to take lives but he lets others tell him what to do. these people might be good people but he doesnt care, i cant stand him...
