Synopsis

Plagued by re-occurring dreams he can't quite recall and a strange power that allows others' thoughts and emotions to flow into him, high school student Sakurai Yuki has always longed to know the reason for his existence. Soon after a hauntingly beautiful, nostalgic stranger named Zess saves Yuki from an oncoming car, the head of the Gioh Clan shows up at the foster group home where Yuki lives, claiming to be family. Who are the Gioh Clan? What is their connection to Zess? Most importantly, can Yuki accept his role in the destiny laid out before him?

I read it since 1-2 years ago, and still drawn on it ^.^ It's very good story I can said. You can feel excitment, happiness, cheerfulness, and even touching. Sou da yo! It happened to me when i read vol 4 (the scene Yuki found out the real Kanata), I cried for good. Yuki, kawaiso~ >< Even u can feel sorry for the main protagonist hiks :(

Why most people said its genre is shounen-ai? yes I admit I got the manga from yaoi site, but from my point of view, it had less 'shonen-ai' scene. More like shoujo-manga type I might said. Main plot read more

Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru is a funny and actually closer to shoujo rather than shounen-ai manga. Would I recommend to read it? Definitely, I love it. But if you are doing it because you expect Luka and Yuki to kiss, forget it. At least for now.

Uraboku manga covers two arcs so far: the first is the one on the anime (even though the meeting with Reiga, Elegy, Cadenza and Luze was quite different if you compare both versions) and the beginning of the second arc. (If you are confused to why an ongoing manga doesn't have much more 5 years after its read more

Manga: X
Uragiri reminded me of X at first sight, as it is clearly a bad copy of Clamp's masterpiece.
Kamui & Yuki are both troubled, orphaned 15 years old boys with a power within them, and there are also similarities between other characters, such as Kusanagi & Tsukumo, both able to communicate with animals, and Kotori & Touko, which are both the sweet, blonde little sister of the situation.
Both manga have amazing art, lots of beautiful boys, plenty of angst, a similar mood, and they also have some themes in common, such as dreams, destiny, friendship, etc.
That said, X is unquestionably  read more

Manga: Inu x Boku SS
Both have: - BISHIES, Supernatural, fantasy, amazing art. - And a group of people with powers that lives together in a mansion (and all fight together with a partner), plus a hugely powerful main guy that desperately wants to protect the other protagonist because of a "romantic" event on their past.

Manga: Silver Diamond
Many similarities including a boy who doesn't want to be alone and has a group of friends, all with special skills. in this case, rakan and yuki both have a special power that is very important, have similar personalities and needs to be protected. in another case, one friend from the group are really protective of the main character. For the plot, both groups from SD and Uragiri are trying to save the world in all, you get the same feeling for both

Manga: Vampire Knight
Both have a supernatural plot and drama. Both have shoujo and the art is very similar and beautiful.

Manga: Aruhi Sorakara Totsuzen ni
they are very similar
first:the main chareters of the mangas don't know that they have powers until a man from the past show up
second:the main charecters are reincarnations of love ones from the man that came from the past
and their are both Shounen Ai
both really enjoyable
