Its pretty rare that I feel the need to write a review, but this manga managed to spark that urge. This is also a review for a yaoi... which is a first for me hehe.
The story was pretty good and it didn't have a plot that was as over used as most other yaois i've read. It wasn't very unpredictable, but that was to be expected.
The art was the style of its time. The women and men look pretty similar and the man have hips that are ridiculously small.
I mean seriously. They all look like 12 year olds from the waist down. But the anatomy's proportions are consistent throughout the manga so its just the style.
The characters were fair. Ren is... meh. Emotionally damaged, needs somebody to love, lonely, but kinda jerkish. And Youji... would be a better character if he didn't freakin cry so much! Its gotten on my nerves so much. But some girls probably like that. Just not me haha. Way too much emotion coming from a 17 year old guy.
The pace of the manga is pretty slow. But in this case, the pace works. Its not all, guy meets guy, BAM they sleep together, then they pledge their love to each other. This manga definitely has a more realistic feel then the typical yoai I previously descried.
Overall I gave it a 6. Not great but not too shabby~
Its worth a shot, so give it a chance. You might like it more than I did :)
