It was okay...

Hmm...the storyline and all is pretty okay although I think there are some parts which is pretty rushed and all. It's not very great but it's pretty enjoyable. Character wise, it's not so great but they're still acceptable.

Lots of Emotive Punch to Story & Illustrations

The 3 main character's motivations and personalities were all very alive and vivid. Distinctly different people, all 3 held recognizable human behaviours.

The story was told with well-chosen, dramatically captured moments that moved the story forward at a rapid pace. But I really studied each page, because I wanted to soak it all up, bask in all the trauma and emotion! I always am a sucker for those out-of-control moments contrasted with the thought-provoking still and tender moments however fantasy-like they may be. There's plenty of those in this manga, with many different catalysts from a rich variety of backgrounds.

A complaint: The doctor. WTF? Who the hell are you, I thought, when he was suddenly a major player. He needed to be expanded more for how important or 'large' his role became with helping Kiyoto. He seemed to be sort of a deus et machina for Kiyoto's serious physical and deep mental troubles.

The artwork proportions were off one or two times, but otherwise it was all very beautifully illustrated. The backgrounds were were detailed and realistic looking, but didn't detract from the main show of the interpersonal relationships. The art style of CJ-sensei is flowing, pretty. The seme and uke have the more traditional style of art. (Seme: Taller, Broader, Serious Uke: Smaller, Full of Smiles, Teary-big eyes).

something missing

At first because of the lack of comment and the bad ratings I didnt want to read this, but cause Im a yaoi-lover I thought I cant leave a poor manga readless just cause some bad ratings! smile
And in the end it turned out great. Nah, not great, just good, enjoyable.
How do I say... the main caracter behaved just like I thought he should, there was enough love and sex, the story was good enough, but there is something missing... something that makes me remember this manga, but this is missing.
Without this little something, this manga is just good, not great.
