Some crazy men! I like it!

Just like the prequel Ubawareru Koto Marugoto Zenbu this story is very enjoyabe. Needless to say the art is gorgeous. I just love the way Yoshinaga looks. I also like how the character's posessiveness goes to the extreme. It is interesting that it's not in the traditional BL sense of I'll-never-let-you-go-until-you-or-I-or-us-both-or-everyone-else-die(s), but more in a... well sort of sadistic way. Not only do they hurt their partner, it seems they partly don't get away unwounded as well.

I think the facial expressions are drawn nicely to support this feeling I had. I like this manga very much, and its prequel as well. Though it is not perfect by any means, it is still very enjoyable. I can recommend it.

Sequel Breeds More Dysfunction

I kind of enjoyed this story yet I can't say I enjoyed the couple as much. More specifically the uke. I didn't like his personality at all. The seme was that more so common kind of guy that can smile to hide evil intent. I felt like this sequel was kind of thrown together to get more out of these characters as a whole but it wasn't necessary. Just like the prequel the Seme just doesn't get what he wants out of the uke and yet that's a part of the story I appreciate as weird as it sounds. I enjoyed that this was a realistic representation of yet another dysfunctional couple and that their twisted form of love just begets more dysfunction. It's real basically. As I commented about the sequel both characters have their flaws in the main couple and it was an interesting read but these guys as a couple are forgettable. I can't even remember their names which is weird considering I read this not to long ago. I think this sequel would have been more of a dazzling read if it focused more on the previous couple and used these guys as just the side couple in an extra chapter or such. They didn't need development because apparently there was nothing to develop. Nothing changed between them in the end so it makes it seem pointless.

Speaking of Yoshinaga and Takao in this sequel I found their chapters interesting because it shows something important: a person can only take but so much. Takao's behavior towards his more patient lover is gradual emotional abuse and it wears Yoshinaga down to a breaking point. As out of place as that felt it felt necessary to me as well. It was interesting and a lot more character development compared to the main couple of this sequel. I would really appreciate another story concerning these two again and see what was not confirmed in this one and that was did things change for these two. Are they truly capable of being together in a healthy way? Probably not but I did enjoy this series a lot even if more for YoshinagaxTakao then the main couple here.

It's not as great as the first but it's still a good read with great art. If the elements of the story aren't a bother I'd recommend this series as a whole.

This is probably the only manga that I wished that none of the characters ended up together. The first couple, I hated the seme. Total jerk. The second couple, the uke was just a cheating slut. The uke should know that after all the stuff he did he should just keep his mouth shut and do as he is told if he wants the relationship to work. The uke shouldn't even expect any trust from the seme. He totally broke it.

I still love this series. Interconnected stories are the best. It's just as enjoyable as its prequel so if you liked the first one, read this one.

I love when there are interconnecting stories. It's a lot of fun!

Hmm. This one was kind of fascinating. This was like the opposite of the super possessive boyfriend. I don't see that often.

The owner in this is just as crazy as the seme from the prequel, only it's a more unusual insanity. I was a little weirded out at first, but then it got really entertaining. Still strange, though...

As much as the seme from the prequel wanted to possess his boyfriend, the uke from this story wants to be possessed. Very disfunctional, but as long as it works for them, oh well (and it really works for them... those lovable weirdos).

That said, I love the art, and after a while I got into the craziness okay. It wasn't TOO unbelievable, so I didn't need to suspend my disbelief, which is always awesome!

I wanted more of Yoshinaga and Takao

I feel like I wanted Takao to repent a bit more. There was something missing. It truly broke my heart when Yoshinaga broke down like that, even going as far as to cut his hair. Maybe the mangaka was in a rush to finish it or she didn't want to prolong the drama but... I wish she didn't put such a drastic change of pace on the sequel. I really love them. I wanted more of this couple. It's such a rare plot to find. I didn't rate the prequel so i'll rate it all here. I obviously loved it very much since it moved me. I'm easily pleased with these kinds of story. I love the art as well but I hated Takao's hair. I just sucked it up cause the story was so good. It's things like that when you know you have to rate the story a 10. When the art cease to matter.

not bad, but i want more

i don't like takehisa, which means i don't like that relationship. i do see why he does what he does, but IMO that's an incredibly juvenile and cruel way to go about it -- and it doesn't even get him what he wants (i am not surprised at that). maybe that's the lesson here, but i don't know whether it got learned. that's often the case with abe's manga; i am not sure exactly what the characters get out of their experiences. takao sure hasn't learned his lesson yet, despite having had it repeated several times.

his tit fetish is beyond annoying, but then yoshinaga blows up about something totally unrelated. well, that's life; one last straw can break the camel's back. i am not sure i am happy with the treatment here though. yuuichi says some hurtful but true words to takao, but frankly, i don't know whether takao took those to heart. maybe seeing yoshinaga in that state will do it. again, same problem as above, and with seifuku no tame no love song; i don't hear enough inner dialogue or some clear expression in the art that the characters have gotten the message and have grown.

this is the one manga where i would have loved for there to be cheating, who in the world lets their lover go off with their ex? and pushes them to be together? i would have laughed if Yuuichi slept with his ex. Takehisa is so stupid and pompous i couldnt stand him.
