I really liked this short one, it's fairly intense and rather mature so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under 14 but it's a beautiful love story. It teaches you that you shouldn't be so rash and that before acting it's best to try and figure out what you're feeling so you don't do anything stupid. Some may wonder why she'd love the main guy because their relationship starts out extremely rocky because he commits a crime against her but if we never practiced forgiveness the world would probably be a lot crummier and that maybe another lesson from this story. It's written pretty well read more

The story and Enjoyment was fair

The Art was excellent

Characters are poor

1. One student was making Ayane misserable.
2. Kyo rape Ayane and then turns out she loves him?
3. Ayane's fiance was cheating on her
4. The headmaster was bribed by the Student's parents (WTF).
5. The headmaster was shipping Ayane to another school cause she was in a relationship with Kyo (did they mention he was 20 years old and is a Sensei?)
6. Kyo went to the university for Teacher or Mechanics? (Confusing part there)

Over all I give it 3

After reading Cappuccino, Rouge Noir was a manga talking about more serious problems than the first one. Or not?

In Rouge Noir I greatly enjoyed the way protagonist was talking about music. I don't remember how long ago I was reading a manga or book and noticed such a passion with which a protagonist was talking about music.
On the other hand, the story was weird somehow. A woman falls in love with a 14-year-old boy? Well, anything could happen, I guess, but love for life? After this 14-year-old rapes her?
Seriously, am I the only one who sees this as an unrealistic thing? It makes read more

It's unfortunate that fairly beautiful art here is used for a cliché-filled and shallow story. The most upsetting (and unrealistic) part is the protagonist's "love" for a character who rapes her, I detail I disclose here mainly because I found the subject matter and its insensitive portrayal both tasteless and, perhaps more importantly for anyone looking into this manga as a potential "next read," incredibly triggering. I tried to finish this short series to see if there would be any redemption for this mangaka's choices, but I couldn't force myself to slog through any more rapist apologetics. I know this kind of story twist isn't read more
