Tight-Rope is one of my favorite yaoi I have read. It has some good gang action. The most lovely part it's the romance I love how both the main characters would do anything for each other even if it means hurting themselves or putting their own life at risk. I wish the manga would have been longer. There's also an OVA with2 episodes^^. I recommend watching it.

After reading the first chapter you will want more of the manga. It keeps the plot interesting.

If your planning to read Tight-Rope this manga wont disappoint you !^^ Enjoy(:

Tight Rope is an enjoyable manga, to say the least. It has some major flaws, like lack of problem resolution and romantic payout, but is otherwise satisfying. The world it sets up is also confusing, leaving you wondering things such as: Where are the cops during all this!?

But the romance is fun and cute. It was nice to see Naoki slowly come to understand and accept Ryu's dependence on him and vice versa. A nice read, if you don't mind some vulgarity, and can just let yourself read a cute story.

Yakuza/gang related BL. You'll definitely love the humor!
Both ukes very physically strong. In Junjou, despite uke's small stature, he's always beating people up for calling him "cute". In Tight-rope, uke is more reserved, and only fights when necessary (seme is a yakuza, so he runs into quite a few scuffles).
