This 44 pages long oneshot has more characterization, more depth and more psychological insight than most multi-volume mangas. The story of this manga centers on the psychology of the main character, and it does so magnificently. Tadayoedo Shizumazu, Saredo Naki mo Sezu is only incidentaly yaoi. Primarily it deals with psychopathology of a messed up teen who thinks he's just fine, but is all but.
The flaw I found with this manga lies in my greed – I wanted more. I just wanted a few more pages, I wanted to read more.
Regardless of my voraciousness, it's one of the best psychological oneshots out there, and read more

One of unforgettable BL mangas I've read. I don't write reviews usually, but I'm attempting to properly write one for this oneshot that made me feel so strongly attached to. Don't view this review too strictly though, it's my first.

Story: A high school yaoi story between classmates. Only the main character is fucked up, full of cynicism until someone reaches into the deep pits of his dark, injured and sad soul and saves him with kindness. And then love blossoms. It kept me interested with the little snippets of detail handed out to unfold one big picture like most oneshots while with idealisation pared down read more

Written by the same author. Both include dark themes and a dark uke.
While Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai is much hotter and focuses more on the steamy, gritty side of Yakuza X Yaoi (as a main theme while Gives doesn't) it's still a good read after Gives. The author of Saezuru, "Yoneda Kou," also has another extremely sexy Yakuza X Yaoi manga out called "Crows Zero: Borderless", (one of my favs!) but for some reason MAL doesn't have it available for a quick look up. Be sure to check out all these great works ^^b
