why do people like this? its just a manga about a creepy pathetic guy that likes to tie up chicks, and about a girl that likes to be tied up. it looks like the author is having a hard time writing this idiotic story because he is adding another girl to "breather" games that the main couple do. im starting to wonder if itll just turn into a hentai manga with two girls getting together. also, its obvious that she likes this boy and she sees nothing wrong with him tying up another girl, its just a weird sad manga....

Harimau: what are you talking about? what dont i get? i get that BDSM is something beyond just sex, its takes a lot of trust its a very powerful experience. however, i still dont like this manga and i have the right to my opinion. why should i like a manga with a creepy guy tying up some dumb girl? btw why is manga based on love between two people shallow? when this manga is about some guy getting off on tying up girls. lol

For something that sounds so perverted and into Bondage fetish, you would expect something totally ecchi, but this one is actually slow and surprisingly sensual and romantic.

It actually touches a deeper part of relationship build up and mutual trust without being too annoyingly perverted. Both hero and heroine are perverts, and it is fun to see heroine just as much perverted as hero, as usually in shounen's or seinen's males are more perverted minded.

Really recommended even if you are not into the whole bondage thing. This one is really good and romantic. Though I wish that male protagonist would look a little bit better.

I only started reading this by accident (it was manga of the week on Mangatraders and at that time was being scanlated by NCIS) and, omg, how good is it?!!!
Best manga in absolutely ages.
OK, not for everyone (or most people, tbh), but if you have a broad sense of morality and a good sense of humour, this is for you.
As you can see from the reviews, everyone brave enough to venture into the world of these two perverts is happy to be there!

I'm at something of a loss when it comes to quantifying my appreciation of this title. The characters are fairly shallow, come to think of it. There's really very little depth to either Nana or Kaoru. But what's lacking in character depth is more than made up for in the interaction between the two, I suppose. Nana's reluctance to humor Kaoru's increasingly demanding suggestions, and Kaoru's insistance on maintaining his attitude and pushing the limits with Nana, are amusing, and great at building tension and interest in their relationship. Especially because Nana is driven to continue her excercises with Kaoru, and Kaoru seems to have feelings for her that both drive his dominating side and cause him to second-guess himself. But the conflicts are the best part, because every time Nana gives in, and Kaoru pushes further, their relationship and trust for each other grow in ways that just wouldn't happen in an everyday relationship.

I feel like I'm rambling, but in closing, to summarize: This title is awesome. It's sexy, intriguing, fun, and exciting.

Where's the button for giving this an 11 rating?

this is a.. touchy manga for me to review. so do expect me to be totally subjective.

have you ever felt the.. rush of blood, not just in the obvious place you might think of first, but to the head, heart, limbs.. when you looked into the eyes of a person and saw how completely that person is yours? when you saw that nothing is taboo. that type of trust..

this is what nana to kaoru reminds me of all the time. I had a conversation with my ex a few years back. she wasn't an ex at the time and wasn't for quite a time to come in case you wonder..p we discussed basically s&m. and we both agreed that things change completely from what the general opinion of it is, when there are involved the same emotions on both ends. it turns into something.. more. like when you trust a person with your life. that is pretty dangerous, isn't it? but at the same time, even more exciting. on both parts. note how I don't want to assign genders. it's because genders dont matter. it doesn't matter who on the receiving end is. both are subject to the same feelings and excitement.

let me tie it up at the end by saying that this is even a manga that I would consider my girlfriend to read. even more because she doesn't understand it.

oh, one more thing. I don't see this manga ever truly becoming a hentai. because sex.. compared to this form of relationship, does not matter all that much. but that depends on a person ofc. smile

Im personally not the biggest S&M fan but this manga is just so good, its interesting, entertaining and the art is as good as ever, im curious to see how he keeps this shounen rather than hentai tho as i can see this progressing into something less innocent, im also interested to see how any sort of romance develops.

im actually hoping that she takes his virginity before she goes off to university as id be devistated for him after all that 'breather time' if he wouldnt be worthy of it in her eyes, or maybe he gets to a stage where he doesnt want her to dissapear from him and he actually studies and gets into the university also.

im a big fan of his other work Toshiue no Hito, if his other works was scandlated id read those to but they rnt sad

I dont usually rate things until they are finished so this is subject to change but im giving it a 10.

its funny cute and you never know What they are going to do next (i also love how the girl didnt really get that the first outfit Was for Her) she is just so inicent yet so worldly due to how she was raise and he just has some great taste lol but he is still so cute

i love the fact the male main is not a "lovely" man it makes it much easyer to belive that he is a very down to earth kind of guy that just will never under stand females......if he was a "lovely" male i would not read this manga every chanse i get

It's a pretty interesting story to be honest. I've never read anything like it before. A romance, comedy, with some S&M in the mix that almost cross the line to being a hentai series. I also like the art quite a bit; however, the protagonist being a sex deviant is a bit of a negative. Nonetheless, it's still an interesting series.

funny, intuitive and well drawn. but nothing too spectacular so far. Whether the manga will evolve itself into something more, or will just continue to rely on sex appeal is something to consider. I'm definitely against it turning into something like a hentai as drunkguy suggested. Some person in Japan will draw a doujin for it anyways if thats your cup of tea. Im more interested in the story that will keep me reading.

I like how the writer decided to leave the hentai out of the manga. It gives it a small sliver of innocence if viewed as a whole. Yeah, S&M is not too innocent but it helps. Now if only I could find a girl willing to "take a breather" with me. ;)
