Aoyagi Ritsuka is one troubled 6th grader. Two years ago, he mysteriously lost his memory and developed an alternate personality. His mother constantly berates (and occasionally beats) him, asking what happened to the "real" Ritsuka, and his only defender and friend, his older brother Seimei, was recently killed.

Suddenly, Seimei's apparent "friend," Soubi, appears. Soubi tells him that Ritsuka's true name is "Loveless," and that Soubi was assigned by Seimei to take care of Ritsuka and protect him. Ritsuka soon gets sucked into a bizzare underground society where teams of people, a "Fighter Unit," and a "Sacrifice," battle using elaborate and beautifully-phrased spells.

He seeks both acceptance of himself, and the answer to the mystery of who killed his brother and why.

I won't go into the subject/plot of this manga, because you can find that anywhere. This story is brilliant and full of mystery with bad guys turning good guys and good guys sitting on the ambiguous side of the field. Intrigue! If you like intrigue, you will like this story. You care about the characters, good and bad, and yell about the injustices as you cheer on their achievements. Story aside, it is damned beautiful. The art, poses, scenes just hit you so you sit there and stare at a page for minutes not even aware of the passage read more

This manga is the first manga I've read online... and to tell you the truth I fell deeply IN LOVE with it!! Though the manga is entitled, "LOVELESS", actually the whole story all about overflowing "BL". Though there maybe some girl/woman characters, most of the lovey-dovey are among the bishies, young and old, literally. The suspense of each chapter keeps me reading for more! The art here is just like the anime, but as any other manga they're black and white. The expression and protectiveness of the characters, especially those master-servant[fighter] situations like Soubi & Ritsuka, with each other are breathtaking. The unconditional love of read more

Story - 10
Art - 9
Character - 7
Enjoyment - 7
Overall - 4

I know, I know, you probably ask me why overall is 4? At first, I loved this manga, I also loved anime. Loved the idea "how to tell if you're still a virgin", something quite new, and was absolutely necessary in this manga. Because of that and some awkward situations, a few times I got goosebumps. At first I got the feeling, that this manga will satisfy me, that something like "boom" is coming up. But then, at around 40-45 chapters, I just couldn't understand what is going on anymore. At one point there's a read more

I put off reading Loveless for ages due to its 'ongoing' status but just a couple days ago had nothing to read and shrugged myself into reading it.
It wasn't long before I'd really been captured by the story. It started off with Aoyagi Ritsuka being just the most adorable, smart and overall great character he was. The thing that really interested me to start with was his desperation to create memories with people and not be forgotten due to whatever happened two years ago.
He was just the first of many good elements though.
The story was really interesting and unique, the idea of having sacrifices read more
