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.

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.

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 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
