The story starts off simple, but enticing. High school boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with a secret affair.

The problem is that the story simply loops around whenever the story gets to a point where it SHOULD naturally progress further. For every step forward in plot, the story takes 2 steps backwards by introducing new characters/elements. Need to delay the affair plot line? New character! Need to delay the boyfriend-girlfriend plot line? Introduce a new element! Need to delay the affair plot line again? New character! Need to delay the boyfriend-girlfriend plot line? Well... you'll just have to wait for chapter 21 and find out.

It doesn't help that the characters are cookie-cutter cliche. The MC is a spineless wimp that spends more time mentally monologuing to himself than he does trying to talk his way out of situations. The girlfriend is a childhood friend, the affair girl is a rich girl and the MC's family? Nowhere in sight after he burned down the house playing with candles in the attic. Literally. His house being burned down is in the first few pages of the chapter 1, and in full color no less.

Don't expect fine writing either. Even though each chapter is fairly long, rarely is there a chapter where the MC does not have sex. And these are LONG, sex scenes.

Yes, the main character is an asshole but he's at least at first he was a somewhat believable asshole. The love triangle between the three mains is interested and if that's all this manga was then I would have rated it a lot higher. You don't need a likable lead to tell an interesting story.

The problem is that the author just couldn't leave it at that. As the series goes on he tosses more and more girls into the mix, each less believable and less developed than the last. The actions of the 'protagonist' don't even make sense anymore. It's totally illogical. He continues to tell himself that he truly loves Saotome while he fucks every random pussy he happens across.

The author should have just made this a hentai story since that seems to be what he really wants to write. About the only thing that could make me like this manga at this point would be a "nice boat" ending.

Hold on, hold on! I see a lot people hating on the MC and saying stuff like "Poor Yuno". This really surprises me because I have a totally different view of things. Granted, I'm reviewing from the recently translated chapter 17, so some of the stuff I draw conclusions from probably hasn't been translated yet.

TLDR; What appears to be a spin less scum bag cheating MC and an innocent victimized childhood friend/girlfriend is not at all what it appears on the surface. Just who is the real victim here? If you're interested in what I think read on.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Anyway I'll explain why Yuno feels like the "villian" in this story to me. I know there are a lot of people who just fangush over annoying mentally unstable yanderes just for the lulz of it, but this particular case is not the norm. In most works the yandere is all over the MC but the MC doesn't have any strong significant others in mind (Case in point, Mirai Nikki). Taking this in mind it's understandable that people side with the Yandere's feelings.

However in this manga Yuno was shown to have signs of mental instability from a young age. Right from when they where kids she was fixated on making Yuki her possession. When another person fell for Yuki she took extreme, presumably violent, measures right away. For a child her age to have the capability to enact such violence isn't exactly normal or healthy. Yuno's actions also served to build a psychological cage around Yuki, constantly pressuring him to fell as if he belonged to her, as if she should rightfully love her. Pushing him into saying things like "I'll stay with you forever" while he was still a kid and never really understood love. Then when they are at the age of puberty she takes his past statements as shoves them all over his face everyday, reminding him of his "place" in life.

From the flashback chapter it is shown that when he met Saotome he found out what it really meant to "like" someone. However all those years of psychological imprinting Yuno did paid off. He wasn't able to muster the courage to tell Yuno the truth, and that he really didn't love her.

Hahaha, but he really has no good options. Yuno is like a powder keg that could go out at any moment. If he where to tell her the truth there's no doubt in my mind that Yuno would go right for the knife. Heck she did exactly that in the beach house chapter! I actually feel for the guy. I absolutely hate indecisive spineless male leads, or cheating scumbags like Makoto. However from what I see, Yukiteru is NOT being indecisive. He clearly loves Saotome, he says so clearly both to her and in his monologues. However he cares for Yuno too. He lies to her to face about "loving her" but I feel that he's motivated by both his genuine care for her and his fear of her backlash.

I guess Saotome understood this, so that's why she was willing to go along with Yukiteru's "playing with fire". She likes him to the point where she's not willing to let him go, but she too isn't brave enough to face the wrath of Yuno. When she tested the waters in the theme park she deduced that things would turn ugly if she confronted Yuno.

Well it also doesn't help that both Yuki and Saotome get off on doing dangerous immoral things on top of being in love. They're really cutting it close though, dancing with a yandere like that. I will however, concede that Yuno likely didn't corner Yuki intentionally. It was her mental instability/server fixation on everything she deems to be hers that caused this unfortunate situation for our protagonists. It seems like she really does love Yuki, and Yuki cares deeply for her, just not in the way she wants him to.

The one person I don't particularly like is Yumeno or whatever that sluts name is. She knows about how violent Yuno would get if she let the truth slip, and uses that to her advantage. Well she's not all bad in that she doesn't seem to have too much malicious intent. However I really don't like the way she plays around with Yuno and Saotome's dangerous potentially life threatening situation just for LULZ.

Of course, it could turn out that I'm all wrong. In Ch18 we could find out that Saotome doesn't love Yuki and is a slut, that Yuki is just a spinless coward afterall, and batshit insane murdering Yuno is actually just "misunderstood" lol.

Usually, in harems, I do not feel any sympathy for the girls. Most of them know about each other, and they do not find sharing the MC. However, in this one, I felt bad for Yuno, her supposedly best friend was constantly betraying her behind her back, and she like a trash MC.. I could not continue reading, because each chapter made me despise the MC more. Someone said the MC was the victim, but he was enabling her the whole time, he was spineless from the start, the end result is his fault. He was hesitating on who he loves, he should have completely cut it off with Yuno, or gone all the way and loved both of them fully. Since he was a wimp, he was on the fence, which made it worse for the girls.

Uwakoi is nearly the same exact formula the mangaka used to write Aki-sora. There are small changes to make it seem different but so far it's almost exactly the same. Aki-sora wasn't well written, and neither is Uwakoi. None of the characters feel real, the motivation behind each character's actions is shallow at best, and girl after girl throw themselves on the MC as if his penis was a pussy magnet. The focus of Uwakoi seems to be on being as shitty of a person as possible. At least the art is good.

Sex ,hatred ,abandonment ,group sex /orgies , male/female sluts, random acts of perversion , a depressing love life ,Hentai, a weak willed protagonist who Fucks everything ,the questioning of pleasure vs. Morality, wanting the school days ending , a depressing story ...solved by sex..ya not really ,forced sex...don't deny it ,hatred in one's self ,and something for the whole family ...A communal hatred for a shitty MC..For more info look at categories....Well I was biased and I have read plenty of H/manga so this isn't new to me ...but I started reading this when it first was being translated and had no real info on what was going to happen ...ya I looked dark and it was dark they got the ambiance down but I didn't realize it would go down the rabbit hole so quickly .
Well this has its own place to live in in between NTR hentais ,and your favorite dense Harem MC who you want to die ...I know but I really want Yukiteru to just die ...sooooooon .

UnlimitedBlades, you're the one reading the wrong manga. Yukiteru apologist...and trying to paint Yuno as the "villain" in light of everything the creep MC has done to her...(not to mention how she breaks later on because of him). Not to mention how he sleeps around on the girl he supposedly "loves".

I like this guys work, always have. Even so, it's become very predictible. it looks like it's going to follow the same pattern over and over until it gets to the end. Then somewhere close to the end, the shit hits the fan and thats that. I think it would be much more interesting if the female love interest would find out what a scumbag he is early on as opposed to later. She is so clueluss. If she stays clueless through the whole managa, its gona be really boring. It always teases that he's about to get caught, but it never happens.

A shonen hentai, that's how I'd describe this

I am trying to like this...
Currently on chapter 19, and it's basically become a hentai.. Which isn't hentai..
I don't know what to say, the prospect of dropping it is increasing.. It was excellent in the beginning, but in the last 10 or so chapters (and I'm only at chapter 19) it's overescalated in a way that I just can't make proper sense of..
Well, I'm going to finish this. Chose to write this as I'm, as always, hoping to by the end of it come to make proper sense of it, and then have this piece of text contrast the final impression.. Idk..
Right now, It's like I'm reading a hentai which doesn't have the necessary details(visually). 8.5/10 while it was good, and at this point it's become just 2/10..
Update1: Chapter 22. Undeniably, I've moved oh so vastly ahead from the point at which I was when I'd written the above.. With that said.. I don't know, this is just becoming stupid to me.
Rating down to 3/10. The MC is nothing but an empty shell around his only trait which is that he likes to play with fire. I mean, the MC is a side character to me(that might actually be a fact and not just my way of putting it). The only emotion I have for the story is that I am sad for the main charactress.
Update2: Chapter 24; Try to understand what I mean with the following: If there were things, such as what the seinen and shonen categories are, but specifically to sub-categorise the hentai genre, this would befall in the shonen counterpart of it.
Everything can be understood, but in order to weave the intricate understanding for everything in this story that is needed in order to actually take it seriously, I need to invest an amount of effort I never invest in to a story unless it's already established something for itself within me.
This is non-sensical at this point and my current attitude towards it that of just waiting to be done with it..
Finished it: Okay ffs. The very last chapter I've somewhat liked, but what the hell.
Why do I feel melancholy over something which I've described as I have above..
The final chapter actually played out quite decently, in the sense of how it all played out in the end...
Poor Yuno and Rena..
The Sakura Kyouko of this story is also a chracter I've somewhat liked. That's about it for the things that were not negative to me in this story.
