Preliminary (Unknown/50 eps)
I find this manga breathtaking. As most of Ayano Yamane's mangas, this one is drawn perfectly, to the last detail. Characters are strong-willed, absolutely gorgious. To tell you the truth, in my opinion, this is the only fantasy yaoi manga, that is fulfilled. I think that the idea, that author had in mind, is exactly the same as the one that is written and drawn. At least I get this feeling, because everything seems too perfect to be true. Hope it''ll stay so till the end.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (30/50 eps)
While I like that there was a plot to this manga, I thought it could have been more coherent, and I hated the way that it normalizes rape. Rape does not equal love or romance or anything but rape! The art is truly gorgeous and worth looking at just for that purpose so long as you don't mind the more explicit scenes, some of which involve rape as a part of a bigger scheme of torture. Yes, I read the 5 volumes. But I wish I hadn't. Due to the heavy themes it wasn't really all that fun to read ...

Preliminary (1/50 eps)
Not sure which "lovey dovey cute" manga you are reading, but the protagonist gets graphically raped by the love interest in the first chapter and it's not adressed - in fact it gives some slapdash explanation of "taking magic by raping into submission", of course not worded like this. This might be the grim and terrible time of 2000s BL where consent is an afterthought and everyone is blinded by the "pretty art and beautiful character design". BL blatantly showing rape and not handling it as such is a gripe I have had with the genre forever, it's getting better, but early BL is overrun ...
