So far we haven't found all of the 8 holders of the jewels but are getting pretty damm close. It's kinda weird that looking for them is kinda like a side-thing but this doesn't hurt the story at all. I am very happy that we get to find out more about the characters' past. It makes the story seem more complex, like the characters are all linked to something bigger. They have also introduced some very nice side stories that featured minor characters, some recurring, some not.
I am very happy to say that there has not been a single dull episode so far. The story is a little hard to predict but it's very engaging and makes you wish you had more. Overall I'm very existed to see how this anime progresses. read more

Story: The story starts out very simply. A guy finds relationships trivial and untrue and feels that every girl that has asks him out since has only been after his good looks. Yet he has made the effort of going out with everyone who asks him out, thinking that it will always end the same as it always has but secretly hoping for one relationship to work. So...what happens when his fellow classmate/distant friend ask him to go out with him, thinking that the latter has not taken his request seriously? Well that is for me to know and for you to find out.
Art: This is a slice of life after all so you can't expect anything extravagant. The drawing style is simple. It makes you concentrated more on the story and the characters rather than the scenery.Don't let that fool you because the characters are still good looking enough be be called mid-bishies.
Character: You won't be able read this without feeling like you can relate to these characters. I'm sure that you have always wondered if you were liked/acknowledged because of who you were or because of your looks. I am also sure that you have met people who are desirable only because of their outside looks but understand their predicament and their true conflicted character. Hence you will find these character easy to relate to. IN ADDITION,THERE ARE A LOT OF GIRLS IN THIS (compared to most yaoi) so do not concern yourself about this matter. This is not a perfect world where everyone is gay and everyone is male.
Enjoyment: Obviously this manga will be enjoyable for yaoi fan girls because of its boyxboy story but I think that non-fans will be even more overjoyed to have finally found a manga in this bizzare genre that will move you more than you cold have ever imagined. This manga will not be a letdown, YOU HAVE MY WORD.
Because of its uniqueness and innovation, it give this manga an overall 10/10.
Hopefully, this will make you reconsidered the shounen-ai/yaoi manga genre as a whole and make you look for stories just like this (even if they don't belong to the genre). read more
