Reno has a new roommate, his name is Roje, and there seem to be a lot of nasty rumours about him in this boys' school. They call him "Casanova," he sells his body to almost anyone willing to pay for it. Reno is surprised to find that, for Roje, this is only business; transaction is over when people get the wrong idea about something that's just sex. Reno just wonders how is that such a nice person can be so cold at times, why is it that he can do those things as if it means nothing? and why he can't get close enough even when they are friends...naturally, curiosity becomes a heavy load.
Will Reno be able to suppress these feelings? Especially when Roje seems to be interested in nothing but money...
I just changed the score of this manga from an 8 to a 9, simply because as I read the recently translated chapters, I found myself crying for more.
I love all of Nekota Yonezou works, so it's not a surprise that I personally enjoyed this one A LOT, too.
The story is an interesting one, to me atleast. I haven't come across one like this before, so being new, I like it a lot. It's different from the normal school yaoi manga's I read, usually it's the gay one that loves his straight friend who turns gay (easily) to be with him. With this one,
Roger is depicted to love no one and have sex with anyone that pays him (except for his roommate.) His new roomate, Reno, accepts that he'll have to be out of the room while Roger is having sex, but not for long. Will Roger follow his ways of find a new roommate when things change, or will he stay? ;) I'll let you find out if you haven't read this before!
The art is the one thing I LOVE. It's not one by Nekota Yonezou that I love the most, but it's still amazing. I see comments of people saying it's nothing special, that they hate it even. But it's clean, the characters are all good looking, and none look so similar to the point where you're confused with who's who.
The characters are another thing that I see people complain about, Reno is a cry baby!...Apparently. Yes, he's cried a bit, but why not? He likes to cry.
I enjoy this manga, I enjoy it a lot. I'll combine my enjoyment and overall of this manga in one paragraph by saying; If you haven't read this, or any of Nekota Yonezou works, go read them, now! I can guarantee that you'll like them (given that you read yaoi manga in the first place.)
Maybe because this is a Doujinshi, and a work from Nekota Yonezou that she took up herself, the storyline and plot has a special feeling to it. I also like the character development and the art is nothing for weak hearted people~♥ ( Beware of nosebleeds ! ;D )
It is nowhere near completed right now, but I will still write a review of it so far~
First of all this manga is Yaoi, if youre not fond of Boys Love scenes it is nothing for you. There are also rape contents/flashbacks, however, its NOT like that kind of manga,
where rape is treated like "wrong way of showing love". ( I definitely hate rape = love?! kind of manga )
The storyline starts out with nothing special, but blooms nicely into something unique.
First, the setting is in an all boys school where people have to stay 6 years, its secluded in the mountains, and kinda "elite".
So our main protagonist has a new roommate, whose nickname is "Casanova" , because he is not only stunningly beautiful , but rumored to sell his body to others for money.
From this point, the cold, only caring for money Casanova Roja , and the cheerful Reno start sharing a room
-and though Roja has the principle of never sleeping with roomates, and Reno is actually a straight guy to begin with - how will their feelings for each other develop from now on?
