Us Ladies Aren't Respected Anymore   
Rating: N/A

I agree with DawnFlower. It seems like us ladies aren't respected anymore in the minds of mangaka. Being bought, and being used as a "toy" is what I constantly read in mature mangas. Many, if not all, mature mangas involve a weak heroine who either gets rape or being seduce by some pervert. A normal reaction to those type of stuff is either a kick and then run away, or yell "stop" without that "no... stop... don't" crap.

When will we be respected?

I've only read up to chapter 32. It starts out quite nicely until the weird plot twists kinda messed it up. Still, I can't say a manga is good or bad until I finish reading so I'll just wait and see if it gets better. As for the characters, the Prince is an interesting character, but Mio and Hina are getting pretty damn annoying, especially Mio with her "I love you but I can't be with you like that" attitude towards the Prince. The artwork, on the other hand is quite nice which makes up for a lot. Hope more chapters come out soon.

I think its a great manga! I'd just like to add how beautiful I think the artwork is! I have a hard time trying not to drool too much over Shouei and Mio is so pretty!
If you are looking for a shoujo with smut, hot characters and twists, this is the manga for you!

I think this series is twisted in the first few chapters/volumes but after everything gets settled in vol 5 everything starts becoming normal story line for a good romanctic shoujo. So I would like to recommend it to people and read past vol 5 this si where it turns back to a more realistic sense that everyone is use it. Its very cute too starting from volume 5-7 don't let the first few chapters disappoint since the "twisted" plots are not the considered the highlight of the story(you can tell because each secret of the characters arent even more then 1 or 2 chapters). It's def a good read.

Also this is the only good manga written by this author.

First off let me say this: Why are so many people complaining about "OMGZ SO UNRELISTEC" . I've seen shojo manga that have been tread far deeper into the "Wow that's impossible." waters. There was some mix up with familial matters, so what? There were twins that got married in Great Britain but had no idea they were related. So life isn't as cut-and-dry as some of you may think.

It has a lot of smut but you can't tell me you didn't expect it after reading the first chapter. Also you have to remeber Shouei has been in love with Mio since they were kids, but he's the only child of an incredibly rich family so he used to getting what he wants without any resistance. (funny how people say Love Celeb is better when that male lead does the same thing).

I do agree that some of Mio's decisions when dealing with Shouei's attitude are not very well thought out and most times completely stupid, but at least she decides not to just put up with it. I liked Mio's and Shouei's relationship better before all the wackiness but it's still satisfying.

Very good art, with some interesting characters, and an interesting male lead earn it this:

Weeeelll, I'm not quite finished with this series but i'm on chapter 27. At first I was like "wow!" and now i'm like "woah." It goes from interesting to just plain weird (the plot that is). There isn't much charachter development, especially in the main guy. Others might say the girl was so weak, but I think she was strong in resisting to sleep with the guy unlike your average smut where it's like right away. In a way, she's got her morals. But then in descends into....well. You'll know later.

If you are looking for cliches, smutty goodness, GREAT artwork, a little bit of darkness, incest, and whatever you can find in between, I think you should read this.

Desire Climax is smutty, cliche, and formulaic. The situations are exaggerated and the main characters are cardboard cutouts of the typical shoujo male and female leads. For the most part, everything seems to play out like a bad soap opera.

However, if you're willing to suspend belief and not expect too much from this series, then I can bet that you'll enjoy this manga for what it is. It's smutty fluff that doesn't require you to invest too much of your emotions or your brain for that matter. Despite its many flaws, Desire Climax does have some pretty nice artwork, which can usually do much to make up for bad writing.

Why does shojo constantly have to have whiney bitches as main charcters?!

I read this manga thinking it would be good, but as mentioned before, it crashes and burns after maybe the middle of the second volume. Mio, the main girl, is almost biopolar when making decisions when it comes to the prince, and her constant refusal is ANNOYING. As my good friend says, if you want it, bend down and obey! >.< I'm really sick of shojo like this. The rest of the charcters are also too weird,and the situations are completely unrealistic (I don't know ANY landlord who'd pay my momma's medical bills. Nobody). The only reason I kept reading up to 34 chapters was cuz of the Prince, and he isn't that big of a catch either. Why can't shojo have main charcters that make up their minds and kick people in the balls like regular girls do?!

obviously, only if there are demands for this kind of plot/setting will there be manga like this.

I'm fed up with the ownership type crap mangaka are chewing up like quickcash.
it's sick to think someone being owned and abused like the one in this manga can love the very person abusing her.

the story (when all the smut is filtered out) is mediocre, cliche friendly (only the sick and twisted ones) and generally doesn't go anywhere.

To think young girls are reading this (assumption made based on category spec)... I just think it's morally wrong to fill their mind with this crap.
