SynopsisWhile investigating a murder case, Detective Hishinuma Kazuha is reunited with mobster, Hyoudou Itsuki. During their junior high school days, their relationship was like oil and water; Kazuha minded his own business and Hyoudou was emotionally attached.
Hyoudou is at a bargaining point as he approaches Kazuha: he'll divulge important information about the case in exchange for Kazuha's body. Kazuha refuses such an unfathomable request, but Hyoudou, the unrestrained beast, takes control...
These two interwoven men and their superb, wild, beast-like love!

After having read a few hundred or more yaoi mangas, I have gotten quite tired of stereotypes, which is why I'm so strict with certain elements of the manga.
The story starts out really well, a policeman with a normal build and almost too cute face meets old childhood friend who's turned into a beast of a yakuza, but the policeman is still good enough at judo to throw the bigger guy around or put him in a choke hold if he tries anything funny.
Unfortunately, this power balance only lasts halfway through the manga, where the policeman turns into a naive little boy rather than a person who's used to dangerous murder cases, and his now lover becomes the stereotypical hot, strong, and all-knowing (about dangers to his girl) shojo protector. What could have been a good story with interesting characters just totally flopped and fell down to the level of Hwang Mi-Ri manhwas, which are mediocre at best, even though they too usually start out rather promising.
Even so, the art is really good. The only thing I was slightly unhappy about was that the cuteness and tininess of the uke even extends down to his tool which is only one third the size of the beastly seme's. And those things are draw a little too pretty and candy-like. Not that I think this will matter to most female readers.
The enjoyment was good on average. First chapters were great enough that I was really disappointed at the end, but not so much that it ruined the good start for me. Those who like the strong seme x much weaker uke combination will probably get much more enjoyment than I did. And at least the uke didn't act too girly, something which is a delight despite other weaknesses. read more
They are written by the same person. They both involve the Yakuza. Although in Beast and Feast the Uke is a Police Officer; and in Heart Strings, the Uke is a Host. They are both really good, if you like one, I'm sure you will like the other.
