From Yen Press:

Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches.

As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named “Zess,” whose face tugs on Yuki’s memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death.

But when Yuki’s compassion leads him to disobey Zess’s order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he’s even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?

basically any genre you're looking for, there's a manga better than this one. If you're looking for shounen-ai, then this is lacking in that area, same with any typical shoujo romance/action

however hotsuma and shuusei are an amazing couple and the only reason i read so far in the series, so its an okay read with a couple of good moments, but nothing too great

omg i'm turning old waiting for this serie to come out!! it's not that great to begin with and making me wait and wait it's turning on my nerves!
but it's my fault for been that kind of persons who must always finish what they start!...
I even saw the anime cause i thought "maybe this will tell me the ending so i can put some closer into this.." .. well.. IT DIDN'T!! it has a freaking OPEN ENDING!!.. and in all the freaking series all what yuki does is cry and scream "kanata-san!!" ¬¬' freaking annoying!!
it would've been perfect if they would've used all the good this in the plot in a different way!
it had soo much potential! so bad they didn't knew how to use it.. :S

I LOVED this series (Although it tooks 2YEARS for a new chapter -.-) I saw it and was like "psha, is weird, I no read this!" BUT I got the manga and started to read and was like "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME" I love it so much, the plot! Characters!( LUKA)! Everything about was amazing. I didn't even mind that it was shounen-ai, which I hardly ever read.
My advice to everyone. READ THIS. YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Uragiri is one of my fav mangas. Althought it has a few clichè times, its overall good.
I have to thanks oragiri-sensei for the awesome art it has. Males are just.... -drools-
Even though I have a huge dislike toward the main couple Yuki and Luka (so dèjá vu and i give me arghh moments) I: do like the rest of the couples Shusei and Hotsuma, Kuroto and Senchirou, the new ones whose names I always forget and it would be considered as spoiler, and my guilty pleasure Yoko and Tsukumo, I just love them. Honestly I cant find myself thinking they are old sis and young bro, they are just to lovely and they suit each other. If this manga was incest with them as main, it would definetely be my fav mangasmile

The plot line is moving steadily, but it gets really annoying...and it's going on already past 9 volumes!
The anime was quite bland and unexciting...but! the villains were the redeeming factors for me. At the same time they also sucked...there's not much action going on and there's actually time to introduce MORE characters...what?
Let's just say this manga really lacks that dynamic story/characters...
I didn't like Luka...he would be on almost every cover I'd see and he'll be touching Yuki...but nothing happens in the manga! Pfft!~ but we all know there's some type of ending involving those two...friendship, romance, whatever, it's going to happen. :/

I like this series but really am i the only one that thinks yuki should have just been a girl instead, i mean everything about him is more like a gir.l its almost like he's just a guy to draw in the shounen ai readers, i like shounen ai but i'm not reading this because i think there's shounen ai in it but because it has beautiful art and a nice pacing storyline. but i just see this as a really nice shoujo with a bit of an shounen ai under tones thats a good read for anyone even if they don't like shounen ai the relationship between some of the characters seems to show more of a deep bond like they really need each other and care about each other but it doesn't always seem like its romantic thing,i just think yuki should have just been reincarnated as a girl instead because it fits the story more in my opinion.

I'm a troublesome die-hard corny shoujo otaku with a damn straight fetish for bishes and strong female heroines so wen i picked this manga to read i was veryyyy hesitant..

Ok Ok the art looked very beautiful but it said it was shounen ai and im like ...DUDE im a shoujo girl, a cute girl and a hot guy happily ever after>> thats the way my life works?? rite!

thenn i just got engulfed into this whole new world..
the class of art and storyline is very unique and although the romance is slow, im loving it to bits to be honest >.< >.<

trust me, its really cute and this is my first time reading a shounen-ai manga and its reallly genuine! Nothing pervetted or anything, just soo sweet and cute!!
And anyways, the main character Yuki was a girl in his previous life and was madly in love with the most smexii person i have ever seen O.O

The art is not exactly my taste, too shoujo and too Clamp. I must confess I don't really like the protagonist, Yuki. He looks like (and sounds like) a shoujo girl. His boyfriend (Luka) is totally hot... but sort of decorative, he doesn't do much and he is too invencible. So, basically the main pair is not much my taste but... Hotsuma and Shuusei totally compensates this. Everything that you could want to see from the main pair, you will see with Hotsuma and Shuusei. They are human, flawed and they never cease to reassure their feelings. It's great. I'm happy the anime is also focused in this pair. So, basically I'm enjoying the story a lot because of them. Tsukumo and Toko are very cute too.

This is probably my favorite manga right now! I love it so much! All the character are strong and likable and not annoying.

Yuki, for being the main "hero" is suprisingly not irritating, even for being a girl in his past lol. I think he is headstrong, but a little confused at times, especially over his feelings for Luka. I think he brings great life to the the story.

Luka and Takashiro are so incredibly sexy!! It's nosebleed good! lol. Their power struggle, to me, is funny. No one really knows exactly what Luka is. Know one knows how old he actually is. His feelings for Yuki remains "unknown". Takashiro his Yuki's "brother". He has that certain savoufare that makes his character irrisistable lol(at least for me...^_^). At times he does play the "doting older bother" card, and he becomes a very sweet character.

I love Tskumo and Tooko, especially Tooko, i think she is just amazing and Tsukumo is just so spacy at times that he is just hilarious. I love the relationship between the two as well. And for the record....They are NOT twins!! They are siblings, but not twins. Tooko is OLDER!! The manga tells you that! The manga never says that they are twins!!

Hotsuma brings good humor to the story along with his relationship with Shuusei. Shuusei is very mature and a very sweet character. I like the hidden affection shown between these two and so far are probably one of my favorite pairings.

I personally love the two new partners Senshiro and Kuroto(featured on the cover of vol.6). I don't know too much about them yet. I'm still learning, but they seem very much on their toes and very strong.

The art is beautiful and the story line is very interesting. With each volume comes new characters and a new twist that keeps you guessing. This manga is amazing, please give it try! I highly reccomend it!!

And I saw on the main website that it is to be made in an anime!! So when it debuts, check it out and support UraBoku and Odagiri-Sensei!
