This has got to be one of the most realistic manga's I have ever read.

I am not very much of a yaoi fan at all, but I am quite the fan of FAKE. I found this on the recommendations list and I thought, why not? Man am I glad I took a look.

This story is vividly realistic. It shows powerful insight on the life of struggling gays and really proves the authors knowledge on the subject. It makes a strong connection to the reader and really makes you feel compassion for their struggles. It covers cheating, rape, death, HIV/AIDS, coming out, and so much more. read more

I wasn't expecting much when I started this manga but it ended up surprising me. It tells the story of two men falling in love in New York. One is a cop and the other is a vulnerable young man with a troubled past. They face a lot of difficulties throughout the whole story that made me want to cry. Overall it was very touching and quite enjoyable.

Its a very heart warming story. I really enjoyed reading it. I actually cried at the end.
Its about the story of a police man hiding his real self as a gay from all his colleagues, friends and family, and a very vulnerable but kind-hearted guy with a dark past. I remember reading how many times Kain Walker told his meeting with Mel Fredericks is a destiny.
I really thought nothing much about this story but it turned out very good. I really recommend this story. I love it!

Well, I just finished bingeing this manga, and I would have to say this is one of the best yaoi/shounen ai manga I have ever read.

Story (9):

Most yaoi manga I have read are pretty cliched when it comes to the story. If you take the basic premise, it's not that original. But original stories are hard to write and I think this one grabs the reader's attention by the way it tells the story. It may be a love at first sight kind of thing, but there's so much more to this story. It brings up many issues in the gay community, HIV/AIDS, cheating, abuse, read more
