Preliminary (60/? eps)
Updated 06/2020
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. ...

Preliminary (66/? eps)
So, before I start this review, let me make one thing clear: I like non-con. I like plenty of suffering and rape, I like all kinds of taboo subjects from incest to necrophilia. The rape at the start didn't turn me off (heck it's what got me in) what makes me really dislike most of the manga are Maya and Nemu.

I wouldn't say that I "hate" this manga, I just- I hate the main characters so goddamn much. (But I can't help but like them either...?)

It was really difficult to reread this series in full knowing just how absolutely stupid and melodramatic Maya and Nemu ...
