Synopsis

A drugstore that deals in medicine ... and danger! Kazahaya Kudo has a gift. When he touches a person or an object, he sees visions. With no money and no place to stay, Kazahaya was out of luck until fate brought him to the Green Drug pharmacy. Now, in exchange for working in the store, he gets room and board. But in order to make ends meet there's a catch ... he must take on 'special' assignments from his boss that can only be handled by someone with Kazahaya's gift. With the help of his co-worker and roommate Rikuo, who has unusual powers of his own, Kazahaya finds himself on missions most surreal.

Not officially dropped, but probably low on CLAMP\'s \"to-finish\" list. xXxHolic does the whole \"guy who can See Things is forced to run errands for mysterious shop owner\" thing better. Mild BL fanservice between the two main characters is the only real draw.

I was waiting for a friend to get done with something while standing in a Barnes & Noble and I saw Legal Drug and that it was by CLAMP so I picked it up and started reading it. In the long run my friend showed up and had to wait for me to finish before we left. I later found out she had the second one and I borrowed it. And now I have the third.

I find the characters believable and attractive (not a necessity but a perk). On top of that I find the story very interesting. It is read more

I have deduced that when CLAMP sets out to create a piece of work, they put in a plan to put it to a halt. Just to make us all suffer (not really, but doesn't it make you wonder?).

Story: For any of you familiar with xxxHolic, Legal Drug plays out similarly to that, even though LD came before it. But while in Holic you find Yuuko's store when you have a wish to be granted and Watanuki and Domeki find a way to grant it for you; in LD Kakei, the owner of the Green Drug Store, comes to Rikuo and Kazahaya with odd read more

This plot is developing really well. Every 'assignment' leads us a little closer to knowing what is happening with Kazahaya and Rikou and these mysterious women. So far we are still no closer to knowing the reasons for the assignments but I don't doubt that it will be revealed in due course.

Legal Drug also has good character development. The relationship between Rikou and Kazahaya grows more and more obvious (to everyone except them). Their feelings for the 'lost women' of their lives is shown wonderfully.

There is a lot left unsaid though, since Saiga and Keiko are still very much unknown to the reader. It can read more
