drama fantasy mystery shounen-ai


Aoyagi Ritsuka is one troubled 6th grader. Two years ago, he mysteriously lost his memory and developed an alternate personality. His mother constantly berates (and occasionally beats) him, asking what happened to the "real" Ritsuka, and his only defender and friend, his older brother Seimei, was recently killed.

Suddenly, Seimei's apparent "friend," Soubi, appears. Soubi tells him that Ritsuka's true name is "Loveless," and that Soubi was assigned by Seimei to take care of Ritsuka and protect him. Ritsuka soon gets sucked into a bizzare underground society where teams of people, a "Fighter Unit," and a "Sacrifice," battle using elaborate and beautifully-phrased spells.

He seeks both acceptance of himself, and the answer to the mystery of who killed his brother and why.

I won't go into the subject/plot of this manga, because you can find that anywhere. This story is brilliant and full of mystery with bad guys turning good guys and good guys sitting on the ambiguous side of the field. Intrigue! If you like intrigue, you will like this story. You care about the characters, good and bad, and yell about the injustices as you cheer on their achievements. Story aside, it is damned beautiful. The art, poses, scenes just hit you so you sit there and stare at a page for minutes not even aware of the passage read more

This manga is the first manga I've read online... and to tell you the truth I fell deeply IN LOVE with it!! Though the manga is entitled, "LOVELESS", actually the whole story all about overflowing "BL". Though there maybe some girl/woman characters, most of the lovey-dovey are among the bishies, young and old, literally. The suspense of each chapter keeps me reading for more! The art here is just like the anime, but as any other manga they're black and white. The expression and protectiveness of the characters, especially those master-servant[fighter] situations like Soubi & Ritsuka, with each other are breathtaking. The unconditional love of read more

Both stories have main characters who have lost their brother due to death and are left with a protector to stay by their side.

I started Karneval not long ago, but somehow it reminds me of Loveless. Even though the personalities of the main characters are not alike, both of them are looking for someone who dissapeared leaving almost no clues (both Seimei and Karoku seem to have similar personalities too).
I also found the artstyle (specially in the covers) of Karneval really similar to the Loveless art.
