I don't know how in-depth I want to go with this review, and I know I'm going to anger a lot of yaoi fans but remember one thing, I'm a yaoi fan myself. Also remember, this is only my OPINION and I'm rightfully entitled to it, if you don't like this review, don't contact me, just click "not helpful".
In fact I had a lot of problems with this manga for various reasons. The first is the length, while most yaoi manga's are typically 1-2 volumes in length, this one should have spanned about 3-4 volumes if not more. It was all squeezed into one volume
which means the storyline was severely rushed which left a lot of confusion. If I hadn't read the synopsis before hand I would honestly have no idea what was really going on.
The characters were equally rushed, I've read a lot of yaoi but this is the first time I've seen such a poor job with character development. It was like everything was a whirlwind between the characters and their relationships with one another. Izumi, Segawa and Sawatari were all thrown together like a stir-fry and jumbled about repeatedly. You really didn't get to KNOW the characters very well, except Izumi which you got a bit of an in-depth look at what he was really like but otherwise you're left empty handed.
I didn't so much mind this manga at the beginning, in fact I rather enjoyed it until it felt more like i was spinning in circles than I was enjoying it. It was just chaotic to the point where when I reached the end I was dumbfounded. I sat at my computer going "HUH?!" I have never been more disappointed than I am with this manga, this is the first time I've felt so poorly about a yaoi manga.
