Even though I've tried, I haven't been able to find a story as tragic as Bronze. Bronze is all about desperate love. I love it. Sometimes it really feels like the characters are crazy. I've read many manga with better stories, art and characters but Bronze beats them all. Bronze is just so full of feeling it can't be called anything else but a masterpiece. Bronze is better than its prequel Zetsuai but I still recommend you read Zetsuai first. Some things are pretty hard to understand if you haven't read Zetsuai. Believe me, I know, since I read Bronze first and after that found read more

Like its predecessor, there isn’t much to talk about with this one.

The most striking aspect of this manga is its art. Not in a good way. The art is absolutely awful, hurtful to look at, low effort where most of the pages look like they were drawn in 5 to 10 minutes. It is not something that is excusable by calling it a “style”, it is just flat-out bad. Of course, it suffers from the usual BL bad art symptoms too, mainly bad anatomy. Absurdly huge and sharp chins, noodle people that are unnaturally tall and thin, disproportional yaoi hands that look more like claws read more

So far this is great. It is moving a little faster than "Zetsuai" did at the first part of the series, but I am only up to Volume 3 so we will have to wait and see what happens next. People have said that "Bronze" is better than "Zetsuai", but I don't agree with that assessment. "Zetsuai" was a slow agonizing pain, whereas, "Bronze" as the feel of a continuous stabing pain that is unending, faster and unyielding. They both have their merits and are both masterpieces in their own way. I do not know if this was the author's intent, but I can see read more

This manga took my breath away. There are only a handful of manga out there, that could really touch me, and even fewer shounen-ai/yaoi.
Why is this manga so special? Why is it worth your time? The answer is: the characters. The two main characters are so human, it's touching. Both fluttering on the border between sanity and insanity, their emotions throwing them off every time.
You won't find your stereotypes here. You won't always know what's going to happen, or how far each character will go. But it will draw you in, and grip tightly, that you will be forces to feel their anger, their read more
