There is a LOT going on in this series. Too much. The basic story had plenty of drama, so I don't think piling more drama on top of that did it any favors. I think this could be four+ volumes long, but it needed to go in a different direction for me. I would have liked more concentration on the characters and their development. Their relationships eventually start feeling rushed and forced. There is no need for that with so many chapters to work with. It could have been a very emotional and touching story, but instead it fell off track. That is not to say that I hated it. The art is lovely and at least the first few volumes or so are quite decent. In the future I can only hope that the story concentrates on a different pairing(I'm thinking masatoXmiroku are not an unlikely outcome?) as continuing much with kaname is sort of beating a dead horse. When the characters suddenly changed, it killed the chance to really flesh him out and deal with his recovery(which would have been a much more interesting story for me).

I was so in love with this manga before I read the fourth volume. The art is so beautiful and it flows so effortlessly from frame to frame. A real pleasure to read. I love the three main characters too, especially Souichirou is such a breath of fresh air as a would-be seme. The setting in the beginning was brilliant and, as the plot began to develop, the romance between Souichirou and Kaname was and is one of the sweetest, most beautiful things I've ever come across in BL manga. This all earns a 10/10 rating from me.
But what's with the later developments? Looks like the mangaka is trying to force some more drama in there and the whole buying people thing just isn't at all believable to me. Human trafficing for the sex industry is illegal, you can't do that. I might accept that if this happened in some kind of criminal circles but these people are just filming a movie... I'm worried cos I really want to continue liking this...

I can kind of see why some people think the series should have ended after the second volume. The longer this manga goes on, the less I seem to be enjoying it. But more on that in a minute; let me first speak generally on what I like about this series:

The premise of the manga is rather unique: An 18 year-old boy finds out that his father (who he hasn't seen since he was a child) has passed away. Coupled with that shock is also the discovery that he has two older step brothers that he knew nothing about, that he must live with those two older brothers for a month, that only one of them can inherit their father's estate, and that the step brothers are also having an affair with each other. It's an extremely messy situation right from the get-go and the manga sucks you in as a reader wondering just how they're going to resolve it all. Also rather cool is that the brothers' personal lives spill over into their professional lives as the main character (Souichirou) and his eldest step-brother (Masato) soon find themselves working on a movie together. Besides personal drama, we also get movie-making drama and the manga's supporting characters include another fellow actor, the movie's director, the producer, a financial backer, etc., etc. All this helps to keep the manga interesting.

The problem with all of this is that none of it is developed in a particularly great way. A lot of what happens in the manga feels rather superficial, from the way the characters have been developed to the plot twists and turns. In a short, 1-2 volume series it wouldn't matter as much, but in a 4+ volume manga, I'm really starting to miss the fact that the characters don't have a lot of depth to them. They have a hell of a lot of angst, but angst is not the same thing as depth. Take Souichirou, the main character, for example. His one and only job in the series is to be the perfect, comforting seme for Kaname. Kaname is the only thing this guy has on his mind, and that's boring. All the things which gave Souichirou some depth in the first chapter--his anger at his father, his worries over being in a movie for the first time--are forgotten about pretty quickly. The flow of the plot is also just as superficial as its characters. In almost every volume, an interfering third party shows up which triggers a regression of Kaname's PTSD, Souichirou gets a heroic moment where he comforts him, and Kaname has a breakthrough on his condition, all for the cycle to repeat all over again in the next volume. As of chapter 18, we are currently on our third interfering third party. Add in a grossly manipulative and unlikeable uke (the second interfering third party) who is probably going to be fobbed off onto Masato in the end (run away Masato!), and I'm really not enjoying where this plot is going any more.

The art is amazing. For that alone, this series deserves a look, but I'm iffy about recommending it for anything else.

I also DONT agree that the manga should stop at volume 2. That wouldn't make any sense. Maybe people just don't want Kaname to start learning to be independent?
I love Souichirou x Kaname <3.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Why do people love Masato x Kaname when what they had was not love? It was just a contract that they made with each other. What I'm also really interested in is Masato with that new boy that appeared in vol 3 xD
And yes, Kaname is drawn so darn beautiful that I had to spend a few more secs looking at him xD.

Oh and by the way, this is in no way real incest so don't let it stop you from reading the manga. (at least up to vol 3 ch 16)

This is a favorite of my in the yaoi department... one of the first few I've read. If you can get past the incest theme (which I obviously have) then you should find it enjoyable as well! Beautiful art, gorgeous guys, plenty of hot scenes and an interesting story that keeps you reading.

Got to say I really like this manga and unlike previous comments, I don't agree that it should have stopped at volume 2 at all...
And Kaname is really, really beautiful, you got to love him...

The premise and art of this manga really grabbed me at first, but I think what ruined it for me is the fact that I can't get myself to like Souichirou's character at all. In fact, the whole time I was reading this, I was hoping that Masato and Kaname would stay together even though that would probably undermine the whole point of this series. Because of that, I haven't gotten pass volume 2 since there is less focus on Masato x Kaname in the following volumes.

It's really good. Superb if I say so myself. Unlike other yaoi titles this one HAS story which almost pushed me to tears and it focuses more on that than the sex scenes(although I would love to see more XD) and there are no mushy, cheesy lines.The story really made me crave for it more than the sex scenes.
And how could I forget about Kisaragi -sensei's gorgeous art!
My fave is Kaname coz he's mysteriously beautiful.I could see why Masato and Souichiro are drawn to him.I want to see how he's character will develop in the future chapters.

This is a good read.Can't wait for the next chapter.

I'm another one who would preferred the story to stop at the end of volume 2 because it seems to me the perfect point to stop. I dislike what happens in volume 3, seemed to be an unnecessary continuation and the characters simply stopped to behave as themselves. If this story ends at volume 2 I would give a 10 as rating. The way it was developed from that point really made the story loses power.
I must agreed the art is wonderful.
