Goh and Taki are a pair of "drug snatchers", often employed by an unknown third party to take drugs and many other things from the mafia, and sometimes private vendors. Goh is gay while Taki is straight, yet they form a solid partnership to carry out their dangerous work. Yet Goh makes no secret of his undying affections for Taki, no matter how Taki resists them, Goh never gives up. With this determination, will Taki forever be able to refuse Goh's feelings? or will he be forced to man up to something larger than himself?

Now when you see what ive rated this manga you will probably think that im being abit too Lenient but honestly this was the first yaoi/shounen ai that i properly thought had a the best storyline ive read in a while.

When i first started reading this i was like woah two semes?! I got that idea because they were both really strong characters which i found different from your typical yaoi manga, i found that this was probably one of the things that kept me fixated throughout this whole manga.
I personally thought that the art was amazing in this manga and the characters truely read more

I don't know if I"m being too generous on this manga or not, but I'll tell you one thing, I've read this manga over and over again and it is awesome xD

Why do I like it? The two main characters is outstanding. It's one of those where one person is "I love you but you don't get it so I'll wait" while the other person is "I love this guy buy why can't I accept him?" Basically, it's hard-to-get type xD

I also love the art. The proportions, details, backgrounds, and characters are very well drawn. It may be all in the style, but it is read more

It has been awhile since I gave a score of 10 for a manga.
Tateno Makoto's Yellow is indeed a masterpiece.
The first chapter got me hooked that I continued reading it til the end for a whole day. Every chapter is a must read.

Taki and Goh are not your typical uke/seme action couple (where one is weak and often needs a saviour and the other will just appear and be his knight in shining armor )both of them are on equal grounds, both are good looking and they both have good fighting skills (to beat up the bad guys -_^).
They started as partners and their read more

Manga: Fake
Yellow is certainly similar to FAKE. Basically, instead of them being cops, they are snatchers xD! The relationships are also VERY similar. The art is gorgeous, the storyline is fine, and the characters from both are like twins =3! But warning, like in the last volume of FAKE, there is yaoi o.o

Both yaoi, involving love between a gay and a "straight" guy.

Manga: Wild Adapter
Both manga are short. W/A is only 6 volumes and YELLOW is only 4. Both manga deal with drugs and yaoi undertones. YELLOW is explicit. W/A is definitely more implied but any yaoi-fan will be able to see and appreciate the beautiful relationship development.

Similar relationships between two main characters. Seemingly one-sided love and constant sexual advances which results only in their very violent opression)

Manga: Gerbera
while the two aren't similar story wise it is by the same person who did yellow. Both are Yaoi and include hot guys. Either way if you like Gerbera you're bound to love Yellow :)
