There's now 60+ chapters so it's time for an update to this review!

At first glance, it starts with the typical yaoi starter: r*pe. In this case, blackmail. Nemugasa is so emotionally and physically abused it makes me wonder HOW did this relationship start and how the HECK did it become like it is today. But as much as I HATE this, the character development is very flushed out and developed enough for me to let it slide.

Now for the art. When I first wrote this review (IN 2014??!!) I said the art was "hot" but "hot" isn't enough to describe the art. read more

This manga was written by Nekota sensei, one of my favorite mangakas, so I must admit I had a few expectations coming into this, and as Nekota says, if you have high expectations, the disappointment it much greater.
Of course the art is beautiful, and the dialogue is cute and funny, and the characters are likable. Yet, as I've come to appreciate sensei's story-telling skills, this manga was a great disappointment. I have just finished reading all the available volumes, and frankly, I am so underwhelmed it is rather overwhelming.

Actually, even a 6 feels too lenient a score. The only reason I've decided to give Hidoku read more

I think alot of people were confused by the 1st Vol because it is comprise of several different story lines. But stick with it, and let Maya & Nemu grow on you.

I somehow is re-reading it for the 3rd time all the way thru. There were some points that I missed, some points lost in translation and I have to re-read. But I love how Nekota Sensei let both Maya & Nemu grow. I do agree with someone earlier that why introduce Ruka towards the end. But if you keep on going, that'll show how the 2 main read more

One of my favorite yaoi mangas ever!!

Although this manga does start out a little problematic (not really a spoiler, you'll know what I'm talking about within the first few pages), it saves itself!!

I have read all volumes/chapters/doujinshis for this series up until this point and I can say that there really has not been a time during this series where I was bored or felt that the storyline was repetitive. Yes, there are some overused tropes, as in all yaoi/shounen-ai mangas, but the mangaka does it in a way that makes everything feel fresh and not overdone.

The art style took a little time read more
