This manga had everything I like and dislike the most in Nitta Youka's works: The angst, drama, characters, but at the same time it's always frustating how the story kept going in circles. It's not a slow paced story even though it centers on the same thing from begging to end.
This story starts off by Takaaki's point of view and life as a host, but by the second volume, we already have five main characters.
Being centered in the hosts lifestyle doesnt change the fact that this story is all about the characters, their feelings, decisions. I kept wondering what would their next move be. It shows how selfish a person can be and how much they can hurt one another trying to find their own happiness.
Everything was a big competition of egos. It shows the pain and insecurity of having a one sided love; of being with someone that loves someone else, and how different the vision of love is through each individual's eyes.
I cant really make a detailed review without giving away something...
This manga did not have the end I wanted, but the one I expected. But from what i learned about these guys, through these 52 chapters is that, fortunately or unfortunately, this probably isnt an end set in stone. read more
