So i completely skipped the first preist story because i hate when religion becomes intwined with yaoi and BL because it conjures up unnecassery guilt and makes me feel dirty. Anyway, the second story was OK, i felt it was far too short and nothing really developed, but being a fan of stockholm syndrom synarios, i found it an easy read. The third story was bor-ing though i did like the change of culture though i couldn't figure out what culture he came from? I was torn between Indian and Middle-Eastern but then there were aspects of England? I dont think the historic context was really considered and the mangaka just threw together the things she wanted to see and in the end, that just left me lost as to figure out where it was set, where the prince was from and his name was rather ambigous. Jeez. Then there was the Military kids story which i felt had real potention to be a whole volume manga but it was all put into one chapter and felt almost like a summery of a manga. Because it was so fast, it was hard to grasp the main feelings that were meant to be felt in this manga (there was alot there) and i was just left high and dry in the end. And the same thing with the last chap *sigh* it hurts me to see good art, mediocre sex and cool storylines get ruined by being crammed into a single chapter.

Worth Reading for Settings and Large Story Concepts

Like the pattern of 2007's Kyokutou no Hanamuko, Maeda-sensei obviously puts a lot of effort into, and displays a great talent for ideas and settings. Alas, her talent is large concepts and sprinting, not details and endurance. The endings are again disappointing for most of this collection. All the stories have an idealized, typical "romance" ending. Usually, one partner is developed with some depth of psychology, while the other languishes, ignored and unremarkable or completely flat and unconvincing.

As with many manga the story is not brilliantly written, and neither is it particularly realistic in its representations of certain times, places and class structures.
The semi-graphic sex is rather bland, and at time of dubious or completely lacking consent.
However, this is mitigated by the sweet nature of the priest in the first story and the fallen aristocrat in the final piece.
I would not buy it, but I might borrow it from a library once.
Not brilliant, but readable if you're desperate and have nothing else but bl containing graphic rape.
