: Wow he really did pick his own path! Thats amazing. He didnt give up on anything and just decided to do what he wanted.
: I like it when manga portrays trauma realistically also! I'm not sure if this is a rape = love story or a story that might try to portray actual Stockholm syndrome. Seems like the former. -_- I just can't root for a couple when their relationship involves rape...
: To me, this does not qualify as an abusive relationship, but I do see a lot of manipulation going on. Meiji is basically using Haru's love for him to get him to do or not do what he wants. You might think that just because the two are in love with each other that this doesn't count as manipulation. However, I compare this to people who argue that it is not rape if your lover forces themselves on you even after you have told them "no." It is still rape. It is unwanted sex that is mostly about control. Formal definition of "manipulation": skillful handling, controlling, or using of something or someone.
Meiji is possessive and is insecure, sure, but he brings up the idea of killing himself often if Haru doesn't stay with him. In addition, he even told him that if he finds out that Haru has hidden anything from him, he will kill the other party. The comic made this kind of thing seem lighthearted, but even Haru said that it was "fucking scary, you sicko." Honestly, how would you react if your partner told you that they will kill someone if you got too close to them?
There's also no one side of being victims. Both parties can be a victim and a perpetrator. It depends on the situation. And even though Meiji held no power towards Haru, it doesn't excuse manipulation or changes its definition. Meiji is still controlling Haru's social life. http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/sweet_crazy_days/mf/c001/5/ "Quit your job..." "Report to me..." "Don't go exchanging contact information..."
I'm not saying that you shouldn't be with people who are insecure like Meiji because there are many people out there with low self-esteem and will need constant reassurance, but the level of possessiveness and manipulation does make the relationship a bit unhealthy regardless of their mutual love. Haru is just accepting the manipulation. Like, he's fine with it and says he's happy with it, but it doesn't mean it's healthy because even he started to feel pressured (had to hide Nakajou from him) and scared of Meiji.
It also makes me question what you guys mean by a "normal" relationship.
: I saw the thumbnail for the next chapter and I'm pretty sure he does
: i'm more worried about the cigarette jinha fell asleep with than a potential rape. is it going to start a house fire?
: what kind of sh!tty plot is this? art is wasted. trop is wasted. there is nothing satisfying about this story
: Screw Romeo and Juliet, reiji and dad are forbidden romance in the best possible way!! Also rerji is fucking hilarious!!! The thing with the cosplay XD!!! Also the sons lover is cute af and I need a boyfriend like him
: LOOL, I'd say Sangwoo would still end up killing Sunbae. Sunbae doesn't even seem remotely similar to Sangwoo. >->
: If they could make this beautiful comic into an anime OVA series I could die happy then :D <3
: Im a horrible human being but i fucking like this. WTF
: Aww this manga is off to a good start. I like that the characters have a tough side.
: The fuck?(￣∇￣")
: it's kind of weird to me seeing that this author has created so many fluffy shoujo djs and then... this

: Dat bOi took a gahdamn dick pic, IM WHEEZING. LMFOAOO
: Thats soo cuuuuuuuteeeee!!!!!<333 I love Yaois with Babys...!!! And the reaction of those guys, when the baby was born and after that is just so sweeet!!! <33

: asami is a sexy beast
: Thanks lol :) And Yh even in anime websites if u read the comments section first before watching the anime u r screwed cause they tell u the whole season / episode. But it's not their fault it's whoever clicked on the comments section fault, cause that's what the comment section is for.

: I love cute and fluffy seme but the seme that is hot and cold at the same time is also not bad.. especially the EYES ✧_✧
: + the fact that 'I' is visibly upset that 'P' and 'E' are getting at it together even tho I think he probably have a sort of hint that it would happen so I can't really sympathize him for it.
The only think that sorta feel real that I can see with 'I' is that he does genuinely love 'P'
: Aww... look at how concerned Asami was when he thought Akihito was injured. I love how he is slowly showing more facial expressions. You can tell that Akihito has completely taken over his heart.ヾ(❀╹◡╹)ﾉ~ Man, I almost fainted looking at Asami's chiseled body. It nearly blinded me. He just flashed his abs out of nowhere. ლ(´ڡ`ლ)
: ok im not ok with a uke that says that and gets all embarrassed but he is so cute i cant help but love him
: it... one of my favs. Funny as heck...
: It'll most probably be back in march if there's no unexpected problems.
: I really want to know what 'I's motive is for letting 'P' and 'E' meet. I'm not really buying his good nature persona that he puts on the surface is just all that he is. This look that he gave here http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/pride_knock/uu/pride_knock-chapter-7/22/ is quite ...curious. It's like the madness he's been trying to suppress is shown in that brief moment.
'R' and 'D' probably know something which is why they reacted they way they did around 'I' when it comes to the subject of 'P'.
The whole key in all this lies with what happen to 'P' in the past and the nightmares/traumas that he kept on getting. Really hope that the author would be able to give us the complete picture in the end and also finally revealing what this 'peacock man' means (either he is merely a metaphor or a look of the murderer that 'P' pictured him to be)
sad lover bot
: my ship has crashed, burned to ashes.... ganghyeok... noooo
: HOW is this shounen ai in any shape way or form...???
: Asami makes my heart melt!! And he is my ideal type!! And he is damn sexy! And I want to marry him! And I like him Gay!! Mom, lemme stay by his side MOOOOOOOOOM!!! (≧∀≦)ლ(´ڡ`ლ)(づ￣ ³￣)づ
: I guess it's difficult not to tease someone who has such cute reactions. (￣∇￣") I love how Mikki actually stopped when Yui looked terrified and told him to wait. As angry as he may have been at having someone else steal Yui's kiss, he took the time to reassess the situation, remember how much he loved Yui, and regain his composure. I appreciate the fact that he wanted their first time to be consensual and enjoyable. I truly admire him for taking his partner's feelings into consideration. I think that he is one of my favorite semes now.
: lol I like it so much! I also feel so lonely, that's a weird way to find a boyfriend but well ... haha but the fact that Kousuke is death kind of bother me... I meen snif he 's death !!!
: NO WAYYYY 2 months !!! that's way too long ╥﹏╥
: Compared to the beginning where they couldn't stand each other I think they have made a lot of progress. Both of them have a dark past where it inhibits them from loving or trusting other people again. So for them to realize their own feelings and stop running from them, it's a far cry from what it used to be.
: Well first, I am dearly sorry, I didn't realize you were unable to realize my comment was a joke. Also, I didn't realize I needed to limit myself to say my opinion on a public form, I will take note of that. Also, that madonna part was a joke in case I need to make myself clear. What I meant was Rou well, getting a harem, and becoming a total guy attractor so I was joking saying for him to "calm down" becuase well, it's a joke in any case. Also, I cannot stop replying because unfortunately I'm a stubborn little shit so my condolences.
: Yeah they all seemed kind of rushed but chapter four definetly seemed to be cut short
: could be his frustration or hatred towards servants that led to this behaviour.As far as i know Lucaon doesn't know kyon is that kid. although everyone else is saying that lucaon doesn't remember kyon, you know there might be plot twist and lucaon recognized him and that's why he was behaving like that.
: This whOLE FECKING MANWHA: bro, I love you and I want to spend my whole entire life with you forever...
...No homo though"
: I had to go back and look and your right So cute
: haha don't expect ch4 until around mid/end of feb since that's when it will come out. patience young one. (though hey, while you wait, you can always read the other abo stories we're pumping out ~)
