As I read this novel, I find the plot is quite common in every Yaoi manga and very predictable. I mean how the story developing and where the relationship will go. However, somehow I find myself eager to know what will happens next. It's quite silly, yes, the story turns to be what I exactly expected it to be but I find myself satisfied with it(?) So yes, in any other words, even this novel has that common plot but it's worth to read.
That's basically my positive POV but on the negative side, I actually didn't really fond on how JUNE translated this novel.
Well, not much of odd grammar (I'm no better myself), but the word they chose to used is quite direct.(or is it just me?)
and the one thing that really irritates me is, they used Breast instead of Chest! What the HECK?? I mean, it is common to used the word chest over breast right? If you use breast, the sentences seems odd... Moreover, in yaoi novel. *shook head*
How the climax went is not very satisfying either. Well, at the beginning of climax I really felt touched and almost... I do mean almost burst into tears (I swear) . Makes me feel sentimental a bit. But then, the climax was just too short, Damn it! Well, in my case I like the climax to be dragged more to 4-5 pages or even a chapter.. but in just a few explanation the misunderstanding just gone. The uke, who supposedly to be a pessimistic person isn't do much of questioning to the seme. I know that few explanation from the seme can blown away all of the uneasiness and questioning that the uke feels. However, i still think it needs more heart throbbing, anticipating and cursing the uke for being a fool... (ok, scratch the last one, I'm just kidding, obviously! ) kinda plot so we..er..mostly me can be happy. lol
anyway.. after all have been said and written, I still think this novel is great to read (I wish I could purchase it) if you wanna have a taste of the story.
