I had a feeling I wouldn't like this

And now I know that I was right. Seeing the genres and categories made me curious. This kind of manga could be either deep or hot (or both). Hoshi no Yakata... wasn't. I didn't see anything psychological or dramatic about the stories. All of them were rather shallow, predictable and boring. Same with the characters. Maybe it's a little bit extreme to say this about guys who were into S&M but I considered them plain and uninteresting. Unlike most people, I also can't say anything positive about the art. I like to add points to my rating when I love the art but almost never complain about bad art when I love the story. Since there was no story to enjoy in Hoshi no Yakata, I can openly say that (while I'm not saying Tori Maia is not skilled) the drawings were painful to look at. For my taste Tori went a little too far with the prettiness of her characters. That's one of the reasons why I could never find this manga sexy. So, unless you a) love any BDSM that comes your way, b) think the cover art is gorgeous, c) are not looking for real plot, depth and character development - avoid it or else you'll yawn through this just like I did.

While I like SOME stories with the whole Master/Pet thing happening (I LOVED Fukujuu No Gakuen), but DAMN this is WAY too extreme for me. When you start introducing needles and asphyxiation, I'm outta here! UGH.

But, if you're into hardcore S/M and all that, then you'll enjoy it.

The art was very old school, which was kinda interesting. Other than that, it's not my cup of yaoi...

This was a great manga! I liked the fact that there was some hardcore S&M action but the plot followed along perfectly. There is emotion to all the characters (besides lust). I expected this to just be a PWP so I didn't want to read such a long one at first but when you get into it and understand the characters lives within the brothel it all works out. Sumiya's my faave character!
Oh and I think only after reading the first book Hoshi no Yoru ni Furete will you understand the very last chapter. It's really cute too i think.

The sex part was tolerable. It's hardcore considering all the toys used, but I've read something that's more vivid and graphic. I didn't like the art that much, kinda like old school style and the plot (although it's pwp) lacks development.

Wow. I have never before wanted to flag a manga for being sexually explicit. But that was... ew. It has no story plot, but the art is beautiful. So if you just want to get off, I recommend it?

not realistic but lots a smut and BDSM

This manga is not really a realistic impression of BDSM. The bottoms in these Stories are not really respected nor are they following the rules of security and SSC(safe, sane and consensual). They don't really care if the mental health of the submitting one breaks. It sometimes is even the whole purpose of there game, to break them and make them depended.
I still have to say that I liked the Story to some extend. Cause it is set in a brothel you can imagine the rich perverted clients who think they can get everything if the money is right. My favourite character would be the Master cause he shows concern for his workers(sometimes), stops the brute clients(normally) and is a little manipulative. But he has bad sides too.
The smut is present and rather hardcore, but there is also a storyline. So all in all I think it was worth reading and the art was nicely done. If you like BDSM and don't care if it gets a little hardcore, you should read it even if you are not that into yaoi

I hate the customers

It was pretty good. I really like Sumiya, he's really cool. He's my favorite character in this manga. I couldn't bring myself to finish the manga. I'm not really a fan of SM and torture. the main reason is that the customers are annoying jerks. I hate anyone who would want to top Sumiya and make him a slave(or hurt him in any way). Part of his charm is that he's the top. I love his looks and personality, he's really my type (and he's got backbone). That's why I can't read past chapter 8.

Smut + Plot Development

One of the few manga's I have ever read in which the hardcore BDSM sex was well balanced out with plot. That's right, it had PLOT. The story and its characters are both well told and as the chapters go on, you end up finding out just "that much more" about the characters personality and backgrounds too keep on interested beyond the smex.

Upfront, the story is told (for the most part) in between the different kinds of sex, torture and bondage scenes. The manga-ka put in just enough story too keep you reading, but I never felt that the manga had "paused too long" between scenes. Even if it wasn't full out smex, even the 'down time' had some form of bondage, be it piercings or... well, its BDSM, think of something. xD Plus, you get some kind of BDSM for (pretty much) everyone.

Although this book may be almost too much for newcomers into the BDSM scene/genre, coupled with the unique (sometimes feminine) artwork can lead the overall experience to be more then slightly off-putting and negative as a whole. It's important to give this manga a change (with an open mind!) and you may be surprised yet. It might just take the place among the top ten favorite smexy manga's on one's (personal) bookshelf.

It's kind of funny becasue Iwas a little scared as I began reading it, but as the book went on and on I grew more and more obsessed with it. Now I can't stand myself it's so good. My fav characters are Sumiya, Kaoru and Fei Fa.

Well it IS extreme and if you aren't even a little into BDSM, you might not be able to stand it. One would expect this to be simply Porn Without Plot but even with extreme sex scenes ruling every chapter for the largest part of it, I can safely state that this is not the case. There IS plot and interesting characters who are explored concisely yet deeply. I really wish there was more. Excellent job.
