Tokano Yuuka has been going out with her boyfriend Yazaki Norikazu for a little over a year now but doesn’t get to see him everyday since he works in a different city as a newspaper reporter. Although they are apart, they love each other and things are going well. Norikazu gets an opportunity to interview Saeki Keito, the lead singer of the most popular band in Japan, Zero Sum Game, because they were good friends in high school. Being a fan of the band, Yuuka gets to tag along. However, Yuuka gets raped by members of the band while Keito distracts Norikazu elsewhere. It seems that Keito is infatuated with Norikazu and wants Yuuka out of the way. After the traumatic event, the relationship between the three becomes extremely complicated.

Holy shit.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She actually ends up with, not the boyfriend at the beginning who was clearly in love with her, but the guy who had his band mates gang rape her. What. The. Fuck? I seriously think I just found the worst male & female lead in a story ever. I don't feel sorry for her. She and Keito are awful human beings.

I've read and seen some pretty disturbing and messed up shit in my life, but never have I read something that made me shake my head so much. The heroine is...I have no words for her tbh lol. She is what she is...her boyfriend however is literally the biggest dumbass. Beware of the sheer amount of rape scenes in this one.

I winced every time the boyfriend got a scene especially when the

groupie starts to leech off of him.
The people in this manga who did terrible things, will never get the share of the blame. If you're planning on reading this for the thrill of a male yandere, you'll quickly backtrack away from this hot mess. Probably the worse written yandere I've ever read tbh.

I understand that is under the netorare trope but even I've read better netorare than this crap. Because of the way this is written, I feel absolutely no sympathy for any of the characters. I felt apathetic at the scenes that were suppose to make me feel distressed. Such poor characterization is bound to get boring.

If you're reading this cause of the "dark twisted nature" of this you'll also probably leave in disgust. The plot is quickly thrown away over time and it just became shitty porn. If I wanted to read porn, I would have just read porn.

Although I felt this manga to be quite horrendous, it had me believe it'd resolve itself in a mere realistic fashion. However, according to a japanese friend of mine, the ending utterly repulsed me. Get the fuck out, Hatsuki Kyo...pathetic story...

This manga is about Stockholm Syndrome. Google to know what it is then decide if you are fine with it. The plot is not disgusting, but it is the theme (the syndrome) that not everyone can tolerate.

It is more for a 7-7.5 but since it is so underrated I will temporary put higher rating. The interesting part in this manga is the setting. It is like a twisted sexual fantasy that may not be to the taste of many but still I find quite refreshing. Yea, there is rape, cheating, bisexuals and all that. It will turn 60 % of the readers away. For the rest give it a try. It is not really good story or characters but the tropes used are hard to find and rarely used so I consider it worthy of attention.

If you can get past the rape (I don't particularly care about this, but a lot of people might) and the whole "It's borderline-H but not really" (I don't view it as actual hentai because the H scenes are too short and sparse), you arrive at a decent manga with an extremely dark subject. That might also be an issue in itself. There is no "good guy" - this manga will probably end with various crimes unpunished, and you will probably get mad at several of the characters, though many of their traits are entirely human. Even if you like dark subjects, you still might not like this. It's not particularly well-written, and it suffers from some of the porn-logic of actual hentai.

This series is a horrendous hentai adaptation for the obvious reasons and it stays Borderline-H + NTR till the very end it seem as i looked at the ending out of curiosity and it does lead to the morally reprehensible garbage i expected from the start. Wow it even ends just like the hentai original! "Rape as a start of relationships" tag indeed and there is also a creepy teen prostitution subplot because why not insert pedophilia too?
One can barely get worse overall and i will never look at her (?!?) works again as they get 3/10´s from me at the most. Akita Shoten is further just the worst as usual so look at the rating and then look at something else unless gang rape as porn and rampant misogyny are heaps romantic to you. Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo (8.5/10) is a good manga about infidelity, Mars is a 10/10 rape drama, Natsu no Zenjitsu (9/10) proves that explicit sex can work in a manga without becoming porn and Sensei o Mite Kudasai (7,5/10) is a hentai manga i could enjoy.
The last 3 have reviews by me so stick to them and walk away... Now.

I read up to what was scanlated so far and saw the raws out of curiosity even though I didn't really like it. My curiosity got the best of me. After reading and seeing several chapters no way this manga can be considered borderline hentai. This is basically a hentai manga with an actual story. There is no difference between this and an actual partially censored (male genital) hentai manga. This can easily be made into a decent long running hentai anime even though it might create some controversy.

offically junk, it ended people and you can already guess who she ended up with...
Some shoujo logic, sad attempt of a seinen plot and xrated art.
Do they even know who their target audience is.
HATSUKI Kyo added to mangaka's I should avoid.

Although I have only read the english scans up till chapter 22. I would actually say that the story is pretty good. The heroine, although it seems like she's cheating, but she was being "threatened" by Keito and everything and I believe that telling all those to Yazaki would definitely be hard on her.... Lastly, even though the ending is most likely going to be her ending up with Keito... But don't forget she majors in Psychology, therefore I believe that somewhere along the way. Things about Keito will get revealed to her, and well you know, things happens. So yeaaa~ Just my 2 cents worth of thoughts.
