I'm so confused as to how someone could not enjoy this. I loathe incest(or incest-like) stories for the most part, but this is gold. The characters are so well fleshed out. They're truly whole beings and not cliche at all. I love that Shoowa neither neuters nor overly fetishizes her characters, and that they are allowed actual sex lives, complex thoughts, and multiple partners without it being drama. her humor is perfect for me as well. There's no way I could write this off just because of the incest-ish vibe, and to be honest, we don't even know yet if it's going there beyond what has already happened(nothing).

The story itself is interesting. She hasn't just thrown two men together and had them fall in to bed. This is two volumes of compelling story with NO sexual relationship between the main characters. That is a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.

I've fond memories of Shoowa, but this mess? No thanks. Incest (or, rather, the titillation of) is not uncommon in the Yaoi/BL genre and it is usually so ridiculously done that the plot matters little. However, this story tries to play off the incest tag by drawing attention to the fact that they are not blood related yet adding in every way which the older man *is* a dad. Then they throw in a 'serious' crime backstory. Uh. You lost me. There are uncomfortable facts throughout the story and the presentation isn't nice when attempting to mix in other nationalities. Props on the pretty good sex life by the son in the beginning, though.

I'm really hooked on this kind of art style at the moment and have to say I'm very happy with how comical some panels can be only to be followed by an incredibly serious panel like in the latest chapter. The incest thing is mildly creepy but the plot with the French guys searching for Ryuu is awesome and I want spy-dad to go full badass. Too bad updates are slow...

The over all story is good. Wasn't too sure how it would end or what would happen. Unfortunately I didn't see that it was still an ongoing series and the end of volume one leaves you at a climax.

There's something about Shoowa's works that seem to hit all of my right spots, and by that, I mean the good ones. Despite her sketchy style, she somehow manages to make her scenes very erotic, which in my opinion, is a big plus. I love the adoptive son in love with his adoptive father scenario as well. Very titillating. And the fact that the son is bisexual(?) and quite experienced at that while his father has no idea of his promiscuous nature is somewhat of a VERY huge turn-on for me. I would like to think they'll get it on later, and when they finally do, it will be incredibly satisfying.

The story is quite funny, and I have to admit, it's easy to sympathize with Ryuunosuke, especially when he's in love with someone who possibly won't love, or can't love him back.

All in all, it's a great read so far, so I'd give it a go.

Up until chapter 3 I thought this manga was just too good to be true, arguably the best Shoowa work so far. The plot could've gone terribly wrong OR terribly clichéd which is rather typical for this sort of theme. But there's absolutely no trace of those unpleasant features here, and that must take a genius to do so. I don't have any words to express the awe and respect I felt for the author. But as chapter 4 came out, right now I'm in the middle of deciding whether I like the direction it's heading towards or not so much. Guess I'll have to wait for more in the future to really know what I feel about the manga. Until then.

i love this manga so much. it manages to be an exciting slice of life manga while being provocative and sexy in each chapter. i can't wait until ryuu and daniel's past comes to light (and maybe even some action?! daniel used to work in the underground, after all).

i love you shoowa-sensei! everything you make is magic <3

I was so terribly disappointed after Iberiko Buta to Koi to Tsubaki I could hardly stand it. So I went and re-read everything I have from Shoowa's. And then I found this and now I'm hooked and aching for more.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of incest unless it involves half-brothers or cousins, which I can pretty much deal with. But father/son is absolutely grotesque to me. I almost didn't read this because of that -- I mean, the sexual tension between the two is undeniable (esp on Ryuu's part) but the father clearly feels like "the" father. However, because their real relationship is made clear from the very beginning, I could easily chew around that and keep my mind on the prize, repeating to myself that this is yaoi after all, ah-ah.

That being said - I hope I haven't spoiled anything, I don't think so -, this is truly enjoyable. The pace of it, like usual of Shoowa's, is appropriate, the art-style is back to what I craved for, the storytelling, the beautiful, pitch-perfect-captured moments, the twists... I'm really loving it <3

So my review might change after it's done, but...

It's fantastic! I kept gasping every two pages, the story is that weird. Funny-weird. biggrin It's a (pervert) son x (adoptive) father, and the setting allows for more twists.

Add to that Shoowa's beautiful single-shot-panels, and you get a great read. <3
