Synopsis

Freelance photographer Akihito Takaba is famous for his daring work in field journalism, willing to do anything to ensure the perfect shot and the exposure of evil. On the other hand, Ryuuichi Asami is an elite businessman, known for his chain of high-class nightclubs and entertainment facilities. At least, that's what he appears to be. In reality, Asami is a powerful figure in Japan's underworld, playing his hand in everything from drug smuggling to government scandals.

When Akihito sets his viewfinder on Asami's illicit dealings, he has dropped himself into a field he cannot escape from. Asami is not about to let his image get tarnished by a stubborn 23-year-old and will ensure that Akihito is taught a lesson. But Asami has severely underestimated the boy's determination to overthrow him, and suddenly, the two of them find themselves playing an obsessive game of cat and mouse. It is never quite obvious who is the predator, and who is prey.

However, when Akihito's job puts him into the sights of an old acquaintance of Asami's—the leader of the Chinese drug syndicate Baishe, Liu Feilong—there seems to be more at stake than a couple of incriminating photographs. Instead, Feilong puts everything on the line in an attempt to use Akihito to draw out the wrath of the man he hates most.

Background

Finder Series was initially licensed in English by Central Park Media under its Be Beautiful imprint until the company's bankruptcy in 2009. Only 3 volumes were released. 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 and published the 8th volume on March 14, 2017. They have been republishing the series as Finder Deluxe Edition since June 13, 2017.

Preliminary (46/? eps)
As a 20+ adult, I really enjoy titles with lots of angst and BDSM elements. View Finder is a perfect mix of angst, kink and story line. I really love the push and pull dynamic between Asami and Takaba. The art is gorgeous, although the concept and writing could use some work.

One thing that worries me about recommending this series to others is that Viewfinder very much glorifies rape and calls it consensual (or, in fandom world dubcon). So keep that in mind if you're going to recommend this to others. The trigger warnings that should be applied are various and serious.

Preliminary (Unknown/? eps)
Viewfinder first of all is a yaoi and u know how most yaoi is rape and the boy who getting rape usually don't talk back or don't try to fight back that much,well this time the character Akihito trys too. what makes this yaoi soo cool is how spicy,smart ass, independent, funny and brave Akihito is. i love how first the story was kind of heartless but then soften up . No only love the story shows it also have adventure. the manga is kind of different from the usual yaoi and that's what make it exciting to read. ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (35/? eps)
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.

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

Cons
-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 ...
