The hell

Did it just.. end like that? Like, no conclusion or anything? Just.. in the air? On a fuckin cliffhanger??
Oh come on, they could've at least tried to rush out a half-assed proper last chapter. This is just shitty to do, abandoning the story so messily. Assuming there wasn't any reason to drop it other than the author getting sick of it, of course.

The story itself is meh i'm just surprised at the ending... or lackthereof.
Rating i gave doesn't factor in the sloppy axing.

I get why the mangaka dropped this series

There were definitely pacing issues, it was going on a tangent for too long, and ultimately it's hard to get it back on track and give every single character a satisfactory ending when the story had been pushed so far in that direction. Having said that, Kyuugou's portrayal of a hopeless, destructive forbidden love that brings one to the point of insanity was absolutely heartbreaking and powerful; you can feel all the raw emotions of pain and guilt eating away the twins as they both slowly descended into their personal hell. Neither of them was at fault, it was just a tragic story all around and there really was nothing that could save them. Which is why it's impossible to continue expanding it without changing the manga's tone and leading it into a completely different direction, and sensei probably didn't want that and for good reasons.
I personally thought she did an excellent job dissecting Kei's psychologies, how he was driven to despair little by little, and why he resorted to his actions as a coping mechanism to the pain. He's a complex character but I feel like I could understand and even sympathise with him, which is entirely thanks to the mangaka's execution. She's without a doubt a very talented manga writer and artist, just needs better planning next time to give us a finished story haha.

I'm not a big fan of tragic pasts or anything but I can handle them if they're done well. I don't think this one was done well. Yeah I got sad, but when most of the manga is a flashback I lose interest. The previous chapters didn't even make it seem like the twin was the main character, so suddenly switching to a flash back that was not only from his POV but his dead brother's as well? Ugh.
Lengthy flashback aside, it was written well and had good art. I believed the love between the brothers when I don't normally believe authors' portrayals of twins (as a twin myself it's annoying to see them done wrong). I liked who I still believe the main character is (the 4-eyes) and believed his motivation to know more about the twin even though it was almost glossed over.
I hope the mangaka continues and improves the story. I'd give it a 7 for what can potentially be a great manga, but as it is now it only gets a 5.

This story is so beautifully painful. It gave me the shivers thro chapters 7-9.
I really hope the mangaka will continue it, or this would be just too sad for it to end in the middle of a scene.

(Does anyone know if there are only 9 chapters of it or if there are any more chapters that are just unscanlated?)

This manga is tragically beautiful. The pain and suffering of Kei and Roku is so real, so much ANGST! I find Kei's character to be sooo uke-sexy! I got to say he's my fav character. I'm so impatient to see what's going to happen and what really happened. I feel like there is a lot more to the story. I just hope the author doesn't drop this manga or I'll cry tears of blood.

This is hauntingly disturbing, painfully beautiful, severely unhealthy, on the verge of insanity. I absolutely adore it. Let me tell you something, I'm reading this in the most beautiful place on earth and I'm feeling so anxious, so troubled, nearly suffocating, you wouldn't believe.

In the beginning it all sounded quite ordinary: nerdy, sweet, ordinary-looking kid meets mysterious school hottie on the rooftop with whom he shares an apparent sense of loss: no heart-pounding. But ever since Kei broke into the picture, I've been in a complete roller coaster. As a reader, a spectator, I don't think I've ever shared these many emotions with the characters. I mean, without spoiling anything, I went so far as to feel disgust for Kei, out of empathy with Roku. And yet, I feel such a myriad of feelings for Kei sometimes I can hardly stand Roku for his "obliviousness", or something...

It's been quite a journey. Future readers, try to bear the very beginning - I know it seems to drag - because it is so worthy. I can't wait for further updates.

The whole story was beautiful. It's rare to see such amazing plot in yaoi. This is the 1st time i want the main character in a manga to die, cuz i think only death can bring him peace, the pain is just too much for him to endure. This is definitely one of my favarite yaoi<3

Sex and angst work well

I have a thing for mentally tormented ukes. They keep on whoring themselves, acting all slutty and cheap, to fill a hole in their heart. Oh, the sweet angst!

I read it all in one go and it managed to tear me up. The dialogue, the panles, the expression are all done remarkably well! It's like a high shcool version of Saezuru, with twins.

This manga makes me feel terribly sad but I can't stop reading it. It shows that wanting something you can't have is heartbreaking and being rejected does hurt. A lot. Hopefully, he'll be able to move on as the story progresses and find some joy in life. As for me--it's time to read a happy story.
