During a routine journalism assignment, freelance photographer Akihito Takaba is captured by the mysterious Asami, a powerful leader in Japan's underworld society. Asami forces his captive to undergo a night of pleasure and pain never before imagined. Before long, the son of a powerful Chinese mafia boss also sets his sights upon Akihito, demanding the critical evidence he's photographed be turned over. The mafia boss though has other reason for taking Akihito.

Finder Series was initially licensed in English by Central Park Media under its Be Beautiful imprint until the company's bankruptcy in 2009, only managing to release 3 volumes. Digital Manga Publishing, under its Juné imprint, acquired the license and released the first volume on September 8, 2010. In 2015, the publisher launched a successful Kickstarter to restock the first six volumes of the series. The license was lost in June 2016 when the publishing agreement between DMP and Libre Publishing had ended. The following month, VIZ Media picked up the license under the SuBLime imprint with the 8th volume set to release on March 14, 2017.

Yaoi - most of them, as fact states, have shitty plot. There's hardly any plot at all. Just smex and sissy boys, and more smex. The Finder Series, or You are My Love Prize in Viewfinder as it is commonly called, is the exact opposite of what many think (or maybe 'know') what yaoi is.

The first chapter of the manga would immediately capture the interest of a (tolerant) reader. Character intro is done well, and one can feel what it's like to be chased by armed mafioso. Mafia... sounds good, no? The story revolves around an amateur photographer who got caught up in the chaotic read more

Personally i found this one of the best yaoi manga reads out there, it has everything you will ever love from some steamy yaoi.

The characters are stunning and Yamane Ayano knows just how to portray their wonderful individual personalities. She draws them ever sowonderfully, with such attention to detail with their body structures, everything youd love to see in a yaoi.

This yaoi is full of all the steaminess you could wish for, and as well as a beautiful storyline, with action and wonderful romance. Its fall of so many amazing twists and plots and enough steam through out the great plot to keep eyes alert!

I started this series a few years ago, but never got past the first volume. After reading something about how it was one of the "best BL titles" out there, I decided to pick it up again and give it a read. I've read 6 volumes of the series so far, so I feel comfortable giving my opinion on it.

-Graphic sex scenes
-Good looking characters
-Some humor
-Art (apart from the occasional yaoi hands) (7)

-Story is pretty bland (5)
Is action but is more like Asami saving Takaba 90% of the time from situations he gets himself into. While I really enjoy action yaoi, my big beef read more

Finder Series is basically an action story. I mean a sexy action yaoi story. And that’s pretty much it. The charm of it resides in the twists, the danger, and the rush. There is no pink here, only some humorous situations; and when you think you are seeing love it is the hard version of it, or the desire to posses. I would strongly disagree with this kind of sadistic and unfeeling relationship if it wasn’t so nicely portrayed, as the perfectly fitting cat and mouse game for these complicated and strong men.

It is only in the later stages of the story that we read more
