Shoujo at its worst   
Rating: 3.5 / 10.0

The story of an abusive boy called Shoei (Jinnai - family name), mostly called Prince, his target girl Mio and their journey through a ridiculous environment of stupid men/boys and stupid events with smut thrown in every now and then.
Honestly every male in this manga has issues that make them arses, the only half decent guy in there is a pimp. >.>
Which left me, as reader, with only the females, and there's only Mio and few side characters as her mother and some maids which can be ignored since their presence is too insignificant.
I found Mio a likable character, who has at least common sense and a nice personality but is weak and gives in easily. Another flaw is that she's easy to arouse and thus falls for the "Prince" who treats her often poorly. But after all it's a smut manga. But it wasn't worth reading for the smut part either.

If you want smut read the Forbidden Love Mangas (#1: Kindan no Koi wo Shiyou, #2: Zoku - Kindan no Koi wo Shiyou, #3: Kindan no Koi de Ikou - cliché but likable) or if you want drama on top try Hapi Mari - it's labeled Josei but its content is more Shoujo.

Now back to Desire Climax - The events and story are like from a bad soap opera*. It's even for a Shoujo too much. If at least the main male would be likable but I really wished Mio would just kick is head and run for it. Sayonara my Prince.
I only finished it because it was on my reading list.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
We have kidnapping in childhood there which is of course forgotten and remembered later. After they fall in love it turns out Mio is the half-sister of Shoei. Just to have it later turn out - after they had sex - that it isn't her but her brother who is the unrelated one to her family and the half-brother of Shoei.
The gardener suddenly reveals his hatred and his scheming to take down the Jinnai family. As he is the son of the man who kidnapped Mio in her childhood and did a suicide afterwards. Daddy died and the Jinnais took the boy in who later wants to destroy the family... no words, honestly what a stupid turn of events.
The brother, now not-brother, makes harassing moves towards his "sister" (eeeh) and sees Shoei as his rival but the one who suffers is always Mio. The father of Shoei and the half-brother, whose name I've forgotten despite I just finished the manga last night, lol, well the father seems to be nice but he ignores a lot even when he knows most stuff and lets things just happen, what a shitty parent.
Then there's the glasses fetish... almost like Horatio from CSI Miami... glasses on, glasses off, glasses on, glasses off etc.

If you want to know the end. Well mom comes out of the hospital, of course this is made as a dramatic story element as well. She wants Mio out of this environment and moves with her and the not-brother far away. Well, since Mio is now totally in love with Shoei it is too late for such actions. Shoei follows her. End.

Average Smut!

IMO the plot, art, romance are better than a Shinjo Mayu or Minami Kanan Work. Plus as long as the girl did not experience rape or forced to sleep with some side character who hate the main guy, I'll give it an average score for a smut manga. However if its a normal shoujo I'll probably give it a lower score of 5 or 6 due to some many annoying instances. Anyway to those who want to read good graphic SMUT I suggest you read DS. To those who hate smut please avoid this manga cause you'll definitely hate the sumissiveness of main heroine & the over the top obsessiveness of the guy.

Sure, this is a manga where the guy is a so-called "rapist". Sure this is a manga with a rather dumb heroine and sure this is a manga with a rather absurd plotline, but heck, what do you expect, this is SMUT. If I must say so myself, it's a rather tastefully done smut. The two main character, they were not bad at all- seriously, I can actually stand the guy, which usually I can't at all in normal smuts. Even better, I can stand the girl, she is actually less dumb, and more realistic- NORMAL shoujo heroine out there, although I hate that she keeps calling the dude prince. I also liked:

the so-called incest in this (I have a incest fetish), I so so badly want her little brother to end up with her, which was sadly a long shot.

Sure this manga may not be the sharpest tool in the shoujo shed (lol, funny), but like some others already said, if you read smut, desensitised your brain and just enjoy the absurdity of this wonderful world of smut shoujo mangas.

I've read a lot of manga, but I think this is the only one I'd really consider awful.

First off, the plot is just a mess. It makes absolutely no sense most of the time, and is more like a bunch of random dramatic ideas strewn together with no consideration for keeping any sort of flow or pacing. I still don't understand the part where the female lead was going to be like his mother and teach him a lesson? That dissolved pretty fast though when other drama started, and it was just never mentioned again. I kept reading just to see if it got better, but every time one thing was about to wrap up, a new crazy thing got thrown into the mess.

Second, the characters are all annoying. I honestly have no idea how the female lead falls in love with the male lead. I don't think he's nice to her even once, and tries to literally rape her on multiple occasions (only succeeds in molesting her). The brother is annoying beyond all reason and his actions don't make sense to me, since they were siblings for the first 14 some years of his life. And none of the characters have any consistence at all in how they react to situations. Makes no sense.

And if you're reading for smut, it's not even great for that. Most of the smut consists of him trying to rape her, or at the very mildest more or less forcing himself on her once they're together.

I suppose the only redeeming fact is the art, and I did keep reading painfully to the end. So I'll give a 4/10, but unless you're really really bored, find something better!

well, for those of you who complain about how the male lead always sexually harasses the female lead in this series.... this is my advice for you all...


beacuse the meaning of smut is "Deals with series that are considered profane or offensive, particularly with regards to sexual content"

Anyway, I really like this story, i think the art is very good, and it is very romantic too~
I highly recommend it to people who love romance and don't mind SMUT smile

I don't like the guy or girl much. The girl, because she gets herself in situations where the guys stripping her in the middle of the street. I don't think she shows enough girl power >.>
The guy is very....controlling in many ways, plus it's annoying that he's like perfect and the girl is a dumbo. i like the art and the twists of plot, but usually, I never read a manga that has a constant changing plot where you think this one moment and its something else because it's just too confusing sometimes, plus the drama is very agoniziing at times. overall, this isn't a bad manga

This manga is literally overrated. I agree with the others--it started out fine, but after the first volume (I won't even say the second volume), it started spiraling downhill at full speed. There's just too much random drama and unrealistic characters (unrealistic characters would be okay, had they been given a chance to have some type of development, but the characters never "grow up" or learn from their mistakes. The main character is so easy to manipulate, and the tyrannical prince is nothing but tyrannical.

Well. I don't hate it. The art is decent enough. I would like it more if Mio wasn't getting sexually assaulted every chapter, and then blowing it off like it wasn't, I dunno... SEXUAL ASSAULT?

Didn't bother to finish it.
