I have to say sadly i was after loving the ova so much i was dissapointed with the manga. the story felt very rushed at times. Don't get me wrong everything i loved from the anime was there I just honestly feel like the manga could have had alot more.
First off I'm sure a lot of people are big fans of Ayano-sensei's work, to say the least after reading this and a couple other. I don't think I'll be adding to he fan base. I will say that the story had a lot of potential, it had a lot of good ideas worked into it. I liked a lot of the different ideas that she attempted to put into the work, but story-wise it fell apart. It felt rushed and hardly had any context to it, they talked a lot but said little of any real interest. It was a burden, more than
anything, to read all the text because some of it was entirely unrelated. It just...failed to delivery anything satisfying, so it got a low score.
I will say the only good point to the whole manga was the intoxicating art style. Beautifully drawn men, and even some women. The sceneries were detailed and just breath taking, despite the lack of story, the art work was just stunning!
Bland and one dimensional, just your typical Yaoi uke and seme and typical supporting cast. They added little to brightly the story line as their development seems to be more sudden than it is subtle. They switch from being one way to another way in less than two pages, and it was just too much to handle.
The only thing I enjoyed was the art, everything else was just a real waste of time frankly. I feel sad that I wasted my time reading it, but I'm glad I at least gave it a chance, despite it being a real shot in the dark.
I wouldn't recommend this to a friend who was hoping to read a good Yaoi manga with good plot and colorful characters. It just wasn't my speed, but just because it's not my speed doesn't mean it won't suit anyone else's. So if you just wanna give it a go, why not sit down and read it, it may be worth it for you, you never know till you read it.
i've read the manga and it does rush it really, like seriously you could have waited a little to sudicing your crew member, like i know your drunk but come on! it was like the tenth page when they started this stuff up. but i do have to say it was good. if you like a littl yaio sometimes like me than this is good. but to me this manga is like a one night stand kind of thing. na d why is the gay guy always blonde and some strong dude, like the gangster. But if you like yaio then this is good.
