I always love yakuza in BL. So yes naturally the third couple Kijima x Kyouichi in chapter 5 "Dissipation and Rouge" becomes instant favourite! Really happy when i saw they got a sequel in "Limiter"

Pairing 1: It was really interesting how it started off being about Masaki's past relationship, I felt a bit sad that they didn't learn to communicate their issues in time. But it was the catalyst for Masaki and Sanjou to meet and work through the issue. The Mama of the bar is adorable. Too bad no one genders her correctly.

Pairing 2: Maybe happened a little too abruptly for me but I do like a good sexual awakening. I did find it interesting that it talked a little bit about how the top/bottom dynamic was because that's what worked for them, not just because the top said 'that's just how it's going to be'. Of course then Kanji had to go and lie about being sexually assaulted...

Pairing 3: I was surprised by how much I ended up liking this couple. Through a misunderstanding their whole relationship got fucked and then they reunited and the truth came to light. I'm a sucker for it.

Will definitely have to read the spin-off soon!

O casal principal foi muita enrolaçao e praticamente muuuuuito doce em questao do seme e uke
O casal secundario quase salvo a historia mas por se ter pouco deles esse mangá deixou a desejar
Deveriam inverter os casai e por mais capitulos no casal secundario que ai sim valeria a pena ler de novo.

This is a very good story with an interesting and quite original plot, likeable characters and great art. It's not a boring cliché. Drawings are really captivating, full of emotions and pretty, also in my taste (I prefer realistic style). Moreover the characters aren't similar - neither looks nor personalities. Thus makes this manga enjoyable and worth to read. But...

there is but. It was too quick to read. The biggest problem is that the author didn't built tension, not at all, there wasn't time to empathize with characters or to revel in storyline and you know... sex scenes, well... it's not like the mangaka don't have abilities to show characters' emotions or chemistry between them, cause she have (damn good lustful faces contorting in ecstasy - one of the best among yaoi) but mostly one can't tell when they started making love or finished or how do they felt about it. Action is going too fast, there's no tension, no time for feeling the mood. What a pity. This is her first BL so maybe that's the cause. I hope it'll be fixed.

Still it is really good, I wanna read more of this mangaka. I had fun. Enjoy it smile

Better than many yaois, but just Okay.

Plot: wasn't developed enough, although the pacing was fast. Characters fell in love too fast, also.

Characterization: the ukes were innocent in a way that didn't annoy me. But the characters were one-dimensional. Kouichi had a little more depth in him in the first story, but otherwise his own story left me wondering why he bothered with Ryo in the first story anyway.

Romance: was cute, but was lacking chemistry overall.

Artwork: was, of course, gorgeous.

The length of each story worked against it. I still rate it higher than a lot of the yaois I've come across though.

The first story is pretty decently developed, considering there are just a couple of short chapters of it. However, this works only as far as the plot goes. And maybe Ryo. Keisuke is indeed adorable but there's something to him that gives him that impression of the Prince Charming who turns up in the end to save the day which didn't sit well with me. He had his funny moments, of course, but on the whole there's too little substance to his character, and his motivations are not that clear. He fell in love all too suddenly for a straight guy, and Ryo was not that likeable or cute for me to buy it. I liked the story as a whole, it was entertaining, if devoid of perfect sense, but I guess I was just hoping for something more.

As for the second story, it was, no doubt, the funniest but still too rushed and even more shallow than the first one for me to remember anything at all by tomorrow. It was predictable, I think.

Now, I liked the third story very much. I would have liked it better if the protagonist this time was not the third-wheel from the first story -- which frankly kind of ruined the mood -- but if you look beyond (and you can, since there's no relation whatsoever between the two stories) it's by far the most compelling one. The characters still lack better development and the overall idea, I reckon, is to get it done with, but it was still quite enjoyable. Of course I'm already reviewing this with the sequel to this chapter in mind.

Unlike my experience with Limiter though, in this prequel I found the art style just delightful. I don't know, maybe it grew on me. Ahah. Gotta love the manly man smile

Like the others, I also love that more realistic type of art where men look like normal men (I am a fan of that over the art where the ukes look like grade school girls).
The characters are adorable! I love Ryo, who is such a stoic, serious looking man with a messed up, broken look on romance and has this cute and clumsy side to him.
That's a perfect character! Three dimensional, lovable, like real people.

All the stories are good and worth reading.

I don't even have words to describe the awesome hotness that is Akiko Monden's art and this manga QwQ It makes sense that she has created such strong characters with her expertise in josei manga, and I'm very glad she's tried out yaoi. Her art is just amazing, so realistic! I'm already a fan of Ike Reibun because of the realism, but this art really even beats that.

This is definitely yaoi though, be aware there is no censoring or anything! If that's not your cup of tea, then stay away... and leave it for me XP

Really, the art in this manga blew me away. One of the best I've seen so far. Of course I went looking for other manga by MONDEN Akiko, but unfortunately they're not scanlated (yet). As for the stories they were good as well. Very hot and also touching.
