Even thought not highly rated on popular manga websites, I'd say this is one of the best yaoi mangas I have read so far! If you are looking for a good yaoi manga with a good storyline, great character depiction and with not too many sexual scenes then I would definitely recommend this one! ( It's basically the Josei type but for men).
The storyline remains unclear throughout the manga but readers can still guess on what is it about due to a lot of "hidden" phrases. Sometimes I had the feeling I was guessing wrong, sometimes I thought I knew what it was all about
so you kind of have a feeling of suspense which makes the manga even more interesting.
This is not the usual kinky yaoi love story but rather a story about deep affection and "carved" feelings, as it also happens in real life.
I especially enjoyed the art, character depiction was pretty good and even though there were not many dialogues , great art made up for it..just by seeing the expressions you could tell what was going on.
The main character, Aoi mainly depicts a frustrated individual going through a tough phase of his life, being unable to cut strings with his brother and still trying to remain attached to his one and only salvation, Saraga-san, which on his side grows deep feelings for Aoi during his 13 years stay at his place.
Without the need of the explaining past events the author,Katou Setsuko, is able to recreate those events in the reader's mind and still leave room for suspense and enjoyment.
