Wachi is a young CEO. Wealthy, handsome and great in bed, he would be a fine theory. But the reality is completely different from this illusion, as he sees his friends and work acquaintances as mere tools to further his career and his girlfriends as sex objects. Any demands for a sincere relationship from anyone irritates and annoys Wachi, who doesn't really believe in such things.

Into his coldly self-satisfied life steps Makio, a gorgeous young bartender he's introduced to by one of his gym buddies, and whom he'd also bumped into by accident that very same morning. As he begins to frequent Makio's bar and enjoy their daily chats, Wachi is overcome by emotions he's never experienced before...

But is Makio really as pure and innocent as he seems, or is that sweetly smiling face concealing a devil beneath it? And is the infatuated Wachi even capable of being sensible about this now that he's fallen so hard?

First chapter is already interesting and it gets you hook for the long time.
I don't agree with the previous comments that Wachi is pathetic and dumb.
First of all may I remind you that Makio was an ex-con man and he had been in that world for far too long. So he might have been a bit untrusting to people. Wachi considering his past relationship with women didn't help him either. I think that Makio is only testing Wachi to see if he completely has faith in him despite his twisted and manipulative personality.
Also Wachi despite being completely aware of being played by Makio, is still willing to let him stay by his side.
Wachi's love for Makio is unconditional!!!
And in the latest chapter, I think Makio is starting to fall to deep for Wachi too..

The story is original and captivating.
I simply love this series!!!!!
A love story between a company president and an ex-con man!!!
Its sweet and sexy at the same time!!!!!!!!!
I highly recommend reading this.

...Is how if the emotionally distant player had been the seme, there would already have been 50 comments gushing over how amazing this manga is. But since it's a role reversal where the seme is repeatedly being duped and seduced (despite still being the one who's dominant in bed, obviously) while the uke can truly hold his own and is deceptive as hell, we have two lukewarm comments, one disapproving one, and just one favourable one roll eyes

So what if the relationship "isn't equal?" There's no such thing as an equal relationship in BL Land. Actually, Kuchizuke wa Uso no Aji is more balanced than 99% of yaoi out there, by dint of Makio's manipulative personality that doesn't waver even though he's obviously as head-over-heels for Wachi as Wachi is for him. And it's pretty refreshing to see the cold b***ard who always treated his lovers and friends like cr*p finally getting a dose of his own medicine; if you sorely want to see the typical seme with an EQ of -1000 get owned, this is definitely for you. (Though in classic seme style it just makes him more stubborn, not less, so don't expect too much character development from Wachi in that department)

One of the small handful of modern-day BL that has managed to keep my interest for longer than a couple of chapters: both the relationship and the unpredictable con-related plotline of the story is pretty engaging, at least as of v2 c4. I do hope the mangaka can keep up this pace in future chapters, though my cynicism says it can only go downhill from here...

i actually really like the premise and the dynamic between the two main characters. wachi is the stereotypical cold bastard type you'd usually see abusing a girly uke in another manga but he goes all mushy when he meets makio. makio draws him in and seems to trick him all the time but his feelings for wachi are obvious. i wish we had more insight into makio's character to see what makes him tick and what made him choose wachi (to flesh out both of their characters at least, as of now they're a little on the flat side)

my one major problem with this manga is the way it's written. it's so melodramatic and clumsy that it's painfully laughable sometimes. when wachi suddenly started crying because of his suddenly found feelings or whatever i literally burst out laughing. it feels like bad fanfiction writing. i hope it improves because i like the premise. i'll continue reading for now.

noooo as someone who thinks this is a really great series the seminegative reviews made me feel sad

The story is great, it's unique, and the art is gorgeous. Sure, Makio scams Wachi over and over again, but I think Makio just tries to test him and loves conning people. He wants to see if Wachi will choose him, choose to trust him and love him, even if he pushes him farther. In the end, Makio doesn't /really/ scam Wachi out of anything because Wachi consents to it all (he knows what he's getting into) and the borrowed money is returned. In his own way, I think Makio is looking out for Wachi.

I find Wachi's love for Makio, despite his brain telling him otherwise to not trust him, to not be so close to him, beautiful and romantic.

The art was cute, but the story made me grit my teeth.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't like how Wachi keeps letting Makio scam him. It's frustrating and sometimes I just wanted to punch my screen and tell him to find someone who actually gives a damn about him

The relationship is mostly one-sided, too. If stories like these fit your taste, I'd say you give it a shot. But stuff like this just isn't my cup of tea.

I have to say, I don't care for how this series romanticizes unhealthy relationships (in the way that almost seems to be making excuses, like, "as long as B loves A, it's ok"--don't get me wrong, I'm all for unhealthy relationships--as long as they're unapologetic about it). Many parts, I don't find believable even in mangaverse.

As a Shizaya fan, this was right down my alley, except, well. Wachi is rather pathetic, and rather dumb and probably an emotional masochist. So just bear that in mind. They are not equals.

The art is great, and Makio is drop dead gorgeous, and his personality and slyness makes him 100x more alluring...

Hm. I have mixed feelings about this series. Is it worth reading? Yes.
