In the weird house of Wakeari, Raizou has fallen in love. His object of desire is Kon. Even though Kon is an antisocial pretty boy, he does not laugh at Raizou. As the intense love scene of the tenants continues day after day, Raizou begins to like Kon more and more. At the same time, Kon is doing a secret "job" for clients that come to the house...
The Love Destiny that you can't escape from by Yuki Shimizu commences now!
Starts out simple enough: a guy starts working as a housekeeper for a group of people. After you meet everyone in the house you sense an element of erotica between the housemates, and a few nose bleeds later the housekeeper (aka Raizou) feels like he’s walked into a taboo nest of pleasure!
He eventually learns why they exchange kisses without restraint but at first it came as a shock to him, and us. As the story progresses he finds himself getting tangled up in their lives and starts harbouring feelings towards a boy named Kon (as the synopsis says).
It was a little confusing, at first, trying to work out the supernatural side of things but you pick up on it pretty quickly. You learn that some of the people in the house are made out of paper and have been solely created to heal people from injuries, by either exchanging saliva or other alternative measures *wink wink nudge nudge*
So with that objective you get a lot of ‘action’ but at the same time you can’t help but support the bond that is slowly building between Kon and Raizou. Raizou has genuine feelings towards Kon, while Kon is cold and unemotional towards him. Great pair hu? Cliché but still enjoyable :)
I really started enjoying this manga a lot. It has action, drama, romance, tragedy and fantastic art. Ticks all my boxes. But the main reason why this is so enjoyable is because once it sucks you in, with all the fluffy comedy and romance scenes, it take a drive down the drama road. The drama is amazing. Truly heart aching and i found myself gasping at many scenes and events.
As the chapters roll on other stories start to come together. I personally like the arc shown as the cover page - sorry can't remember the chapters/volumes - and found their troubles much more enjoyable/tragic with less comedy.
ZE is a truly wonderful manga and i have found myself reading this many times over. It's not complete but still worth starting as you won't be disappointed!read more
This is a really good manga to read. Though it is not yet scanlated completely.
It was funny at the right places, the art is something you'll love, definitely smexy and has a plot to boot.
Mainly, in all these 11 volumes, the focus is Raizou and Kon in the supernatural world of kamis, the paper dolls used to receive and heal the wounds inflicted by the master, through exchanging of bodily fluids. Even though somewhat strange and if one isn't familiar with Japanese terms, the story can be easily understood as the rest of the chapters pass by.
Moreover, this manga really has all for it also shows the love stories of other kamis and their masters, not just focusing on Raizou alone.
To sum it up, it has all the qualities you long for in a yaoi manga rolled into one. :Dread more
This is the best storyline so far of all yaoi i've ever read.
It might get a little bit confusing at first, since it required you to think and imagine all sort of supernatural things that have been going on in the household.
The people in this household are kotodama user, which made a living using words that contained power. They could make their business success, kill people, and all sort of things by speaking the words. In exchange, their body took damages accordingly to the deeds they did. The more horrible the deeds, the more damages their body got. Then, there are kami, human paper dolls. They were made solely for the sake of kotodama users. The kamis absorbed their master's wounds and got hurt themselves.
It will get better and better as you read it. This manga contains multiple stories of characters in the household. Sometimes it's simple and funny, sometimes it's a tragedy that will make you tear up.
There are three of many stories that really touched me.
1. Raizou - Kon couple. Their story was a heartwarming one. It was about the bright Raizou who fell in love with Kon, a young kami who always questioning about his purpose in this world.
2, Genma - Himi couple. It was about a boy who loved someone he couldn't touch. That boy grew up to be quite a twisted man and eventually binding Himi in every way possible so that Himi will always be by his side for the rest of his life.
3. Shoui - Asari. This one is really my favorite couple. It was about Shoui, he bore a heavy burden as the head of the house. Since young he wanted someone to be by his side, someone he could trust, and that someone happened to be his kami, Asari. Unfortunately, Asari actually hated him. Nevertheless, Shoui still bound Asari to him and loved him until the very end.
The art was good, but not exceptional. There were many sex scene, actually almost in every chapter, but somehow it doesn't feel perverted, instead it feels natural. The only flaw is that some chapter are missing in online reading site. But overall, it's a great reading.read more
