seriously, this was too much to handle.
the only normal and smart character was the manager, I was shipping him with that stupid uke.
I love strongers ukes with self esteem and this isn't for me.
and here I wonder why this has a high rating

Okay lemme set this straight: at first I didn't like it and made up my mind that whatever would happen wouldn't change my opinion of this manga (hated it honestly, no excuse for seme's infidelity and uke's stupidity) bUT WHEN THE SEME CRIED, MY HESRT BROKE!!!!! HE WAS AN INNOCENT KID TO THE WORLD OF LOVE LOL. HE TOOK THINGS FOR GRANTED, AND WHEN HE LOST THE PERSON HE MOST TREASURED, HE REALIZED THR BITTERNESS OF LOVE!!! And maybe he's kinda tsundere or an egoist, not telling what he really feels until the uke would tell him lol (like I love you AND you're my first love lol)
so for the forgivable plot bc of the twist, I'll give this a 6 lol. (From 1 to 6, that's kinda high of a hurdle to jump lol)

Aishuu isn't a typical BL manga. I'm not saying that it's the unique type of manga that I would definitely remember for the rest of my life, but I actually think that it's the opposite. Unfortunately, the plot and story doesn't hold any logical meaning whatsoever. It looks like Minase Masara is simply experimenting with different types of scenarios. Aragaki doesn't hold the ideal character of a seme. He seems too naive and immature to hold that part. Kaoru on the hand acted in a well-manner, but I find him somewhat wishy washy. I guess in the end I thought that the story felt rushed and needed more developing. However, put aside the fact that it felt a little plain, I would have to say that i enjoyed the author's art style. Therefore, I would like to explore more into Minase Masara's work and I'm hopeful to find something that I'll be fond of.

This art style isnt bad, but i dun like that females have the same face as males.
Well it was kinda interesting, kinda slow and kinda baka. I mean Aragaki was a playboy but dense, so dense as if he never even heard the world LOVE.....huuuf.....and after realising he became so different!!!! Like he awakened xDD so he became so sweet and cute!!~

It's about what you'd expect from this author. Nothing original or very interesting in this story, but the art was okay and it wasn't painful to read.

Everyone is overly dramatic, but not nearly the worst I've seen.

Not too bad, though I probably won't read it again.

I went into this expecting another one of those normal boy loves idol or vice versa stories but it actually surprised me with how sweet it was!
The story is absolutely captivating, the characters are interesting... I loved both the main characters and especially liked how Jin was just so clueless about everything... that he didn't just fool around with women cause he was a jerk or anything, he just didn't know any better.
I found that to be very refreshing.

I'd recommend this to everyone, it's really worth the read!

I love everything from Minase Masara. When I see her name, I know what I get, simple as that. All her stories also have a similar plot, which I also like.

This story doesn't differ from her other works, so ofc I love it. smile

I've always loved Minase Masara's works. I almost read finished all her works, except the ones that are currently being scanlated. Now this story kinda reminds me of...Lover's position. Both of the uke resembles each other a lot. But the seme in this story is OVERLY selfish and I'm pretty disgusted with his dumb "flirting" acts with other women. Like, come on! Keep it in your pants yo! He sleeps with the uke, yet he sleeps with other girls. I feel sorry for Kaoru! He deserves a better guy. Really! Why love a badass guy like Aragaki?! But then, there isn't any other guys that Minase sensei drew in this story. It kinda like only focuses on the both of them.
But really, Aragaki is so selfish like a spoiled brat. He doesn't love Kaoru, yet he wants him to stay close to him. He gets pissed off because Kaoru disappears?! Kaoru should just give him a slap when he said that he won't feel lonely if Kaoru is not there. The hell? But anyway, I still like how Minase sensei drew the work. :>

It lacks of something but i like it!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love these kind of stories, so cliché but sexy! It's pretty different from her other mangas but still it's worth the read!!! Honestly, i prefer the simple ones than the complicated ones 'cause i read to scape from my dull reality and having fun. And luckily they finished it scanlating!!!!!!! Yay! i thought i'd never know the ending, Thanxs Dangerous Pleasure <3

The story's rather cliched and the characters fall flat. Too much unnecessary angst, immature unlikable people and dramatic illogical decisions being made. However, as the artwork's pretty and it's easy to follow the plot - or what little there is of it - it's good for a 15 minute read with happy ending attached.
