Yaoi?

Praticamente o foco nao esta no genero yaoi e sim um passo a passo de como se tornar um delinquente apenas. Muito entediante.

Just like Cuthien has splendidly said, this story is completely illogic. The author wanted a deep plot but failed to convey it proprely seeing it's just a one volume story. Everything was rushed, the characters' personality is bordering 0, the events and drama just keep happening without any good reason etc.

In other words, yes it could have been better if the author took their time to tell the story and develop their ideas in a more explicit way. But it's not the case, so this story is just average. I will give it a mark of 5 though because I've seen more absurd plot out there, and compared to them, this story doesn't deserve less than 5.

I had very little idea what was going on for the vast majority of this manga.

I don't know if this was a problem with the translation (Japanese - Chinese - English), or that the mangaka just forgot what had previously occured, but the dialogue was confusing and often contradictory.

I read manga for the plot, and this manga have very little in the way of plot. What it did have was so nonsensical it may as well have been totally random (I go into this in detail below, but it contains major spoilers so don't read it if you actually want to read this manga).

Even those yaoi-fans who don't care about plot as long as there is hot sex will be sorely disappointed. The sex scenes number about 3, and don't show much.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So first Haruhiko is all angsty and angry because he loves his best friend, Kenichi, but Kenichi keeps dragging him out to clubs to meet women, and has a string of girlfriends. He insults a few women, who are promptly told not to mess with a couple of 17 year old lads (a little far fetched, but I can deal). Haruhiko continues with his angsty, unrelated internal monologue about being treated like a child (which as far as I can tell he never is bar a few off-handed comments, which are understandable considering he is just 17 and is out clubbing, smoking and drinking). Anyway, the girls were so enranged at being called ugly that, despite the warnings, gathered a posse together and kidnapped Haruhiko. At this point possibly the most pointless character ever appears to tell Kenichi about Haruhiko's predicament. Off Kenichi rushes to save the day, nearly kills one guy while everyone else just stands around an watches in shock. The derranged women and their minions leave, Haruhiko then declares undying love for Kenichi. kenichi recipricates and they have sex on the roof, during which Haruhiko's bindings magically loosen.

So that was a summary of the first chapter, which is pretty much the only chapter that makes any kind of sense.

The characters - They have no personality and often do contradictory things.
Haruhiko - brooding and loves his best friend, yet later on suggests cooling things off, complains about Kenichi's clingyness, and even suggests that the get married in the future. This is a guy who was 100% homosexual at the start of the manga and detested women. WTF?

Kenichi - Clueless and was a player at the start of the manga, screwing women and having a string of girlfriends until Haruhiko confessed. Suddenly he turns into the most possessive, over-protective, horny seme ever! I can accept bisexuality, but shouldn't he be having the doubts about their relationship.

Sempai whose name I've forgotten despite having only finished this manga 5 minutes ago - Was introduced as a plot device in the first chapter, and then just kept randomly popping up for no apparent reason other than in an futile effort to cement him as a close friend of the protagonists, and provide a reason for Ken's jealousy (which is in itself contradictory since Ken and the sempai were friendly in chapter 1, but by chapter 2 the Sempai is Haruhiko's friend and Ken hates him).

Anyway, he does inane things such as set up a fight between the protagonists and some guys, declares that he is homophobic, has a random soliloquay about the dangers of Shibuya (despite the fact the protagonists have been hanging out in Shibuya so much despite their young age that they have a reputation). He also hinted at having something to do with the gang at the end, though I have no idea how he could have possible organised that.

The rest of the rather limited cast don't exactly make up for the main characters' short comings either, with a bunch of gangsters being taken down by 2 high school students, and their leader having a sudden epiphany over the treatment of his little brother for a some reason that was never fully explained but seemed to be related to an 'anti-drug' speech Haruhiko, the drinking, smoking, clubbing high school delinquent gave.
I personally wouldn't bother with this manga at all.
