    I have a serious (sort of) question about the timeline. How much time do you think has passed in the Viewfinder series? I'm not asking this to bicker about Aki--I just want to figure it out. We know at from the extra there was a summer, a new year, a festival with fireworks when they were living together. I got the impression that some months had passed between the main stories at some point. How much time does it seem like? About a year?

    • tokidoki

      Well, after the initial meeting with Asami and subsequently Fei (which was probably only a few days later as the data seemed to be quite important, it does not look like too many weeks passed by before Fei was speculating over Akihito again - then he showed up in Japan a week later threatening Akihito - so maybe two months there? Which lead to his kidnapping and being taken to Hong Kong the next day. He must have been with Fei only a couple of weeks because Asami's wounds had not healed at the point of his rescue. Then they spent some time recuperating - maybe a couple of weeks? By the time they returned to Japan Akihito's stuff had been moved into Asami's apartment. The festival could be almost any, but to run around in yukatas means that it was likely still summer/early fall. Likely Asami ad Aki have known each other for maybe six months by the time of the Momohara incident? I am just guessing on that one though. The extras could just be misplaced in this version (as there are a few placed before the series even starts)

      Thanks. I read somewhere it was about a month in Hong Kong. In my mind, the first two extras happened after the first story, though I am not sure why. So I'm thinking at least a few months passed before the second story with the MO. there's a few weeks between the first Mo story and when Fei comes back, so maybe 4-5 months by then. Then there is a month in Hong King, and maybe 2-3 weeks recovery. Maybe the New Year's incident happens after they get back but before Aki moves in. So then the stalker deal probably happened in the Spring, time passes without a story, and they were together about a year by the time they watched fireworks.

      So a little over a year together? Am I off?

      Probably close or maybe a bit less I think - Asamis wounds opened pretty easily so - if we take into account how long a wound needs to heal - about a month/month and half total - I would say that Aki was in Hong Kong only a few weeks. I am not sure on the 4-5 month wait there - as the information seemed pretty time sensitive - so maybe a month at most? But that is just guessing.

    So here is a question that I had again when watching the Animix: Why didn't Aki text his friends that he didn't tell them to go to the boat, and that it was a trap? He could have said he made someone mad with a picture, and they were trying to set his friends up, and the guys could have gotten out before Fei went to them.

    • Hanne August 31, 2015 9:34 pm

      He was told by Fei not tell them anything, with the implication that Fei would hurt them. And he did not know if Fei had people watching them, waiting for any sign that Akihito had warned them? This is my assumption, but if someone was threatening me that way, I would think that they were in complete control of the situation at the boat too. Or maybe, by not telling them what was going on, he thought he was protecting them from Feis people?

    • Candy eye August 31, 2015 10:09 pm

      Hanne was right. Fei long had all the angles covered and it will be too risky of a chance to take in that situation. Even if aki had texted his friends about his treat, it wouldn't matter cause the result will end the same way. He used aki against asami pinpoint black.

      Maybe--but when they were on a boat full of models, it would have been easier to get away. Maybe a coded message that only his friends should pick up on--something about meeting people through work and how he only took pictures of nice people, and then saying how much he hates sweets and stuffed animals.

      Akihito has kept his relationship with Asami a secret, and I doubt he told his friends about Fei, so why would he start setting up secret 'texts' about dangers they need to avoid? And I am sure Akihito did not expect to encounter Fei again nor would he expect that Fei would target his friends, so he would not need to set something like that up, that would be extremely paranoid, and Akihito is anything but that.

      They know he is a photographer for a newspaper, and that sometimes his photos upset people. He doesn't need to set it up in advance--just say things that his friends should key into because some hings sound false (e.g. "I hate sweets and stuffed animal heads") and some reminder about how he upsets some people at work and they want to get even--even by playing dirty. My friends would pick up on that enough to know something was wrong, even if they might just think I needed to be rescued from a bad date. He could have tried.

      And if they were being monitored? He could have put them in far worse danger...and Akihito is pretty new to his job as a photojournalist, so he would not expect that people would find out who his friends are and that they would be held over his head. Realistically. (I am sure most photojournalists do not have such precautions in place, just in case some heavy from mafia almost 3, 000 km away would return and do this?) Plus, he is probably not thinking that clearly as he is scared as hell - as he told Asami.

      That's why it would be in code. I would think warned is in less danger, specially when they are on the boat by the models. Again, you wouldn't set up the code in advance. You just use the same sort of clues you give your friends at a bar when you want them to get you away from a guy you don't want to openly upset or be mean to, or when you are introducing them to someone you can't insult but you know they want to avoid if possible. You just tweak it on the spot for whatever the situation warrants. For example, if it were my friends, I'd text something like '"A boat, right? Like after prof X's Art class and we watched Dexter and talked about all the fun things he did with people on boats." Now my friends would know prof x taught Criminology and Dexter was a serial killer who dumped bodies off of boats. Aki is different, so maybe he would reference a investigative journalism prof and a zombie movie where people were eaten on boats. The thing is you use your history with your friends to warn them without saying anything Fei would know about. It's something you can make up on the spot because you know your friends and they know you.

      Also, what makes you think Akihito is new at being a photojournalist? If he is 23, he's been out of uni for at least 2 years, and he probably has been involved in journalism clubs since high school or middle school--since manga characters all act like adults at middle school.

      I see where Asami identifies Aki as a "young and promising freelance photographer": http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/you_re_my_loveprize_in_viewfinder/mh/v01/c001/3/

      Do you have that kind of system set up with your friends? I never have - I don't get my friends in trouble like that, nor would I insult others behind their backs with 'secret' text messages to my friends. And Akihitos friends were probably not in the same classes as him as he is a photojournalist. If you have been on on University campus, most separate degrees are taught in different buildings and have different subjects they teach. As I said, paranoia - and that would only come with Akihito having quite a reputation - which takes a few years to build. (22 is about the time most people graduate from University programs and most journalists need a four year program before getting a job in the field)

      Set up? No. But my friends would cue in on in-jokes and implied messages that are different than the words. That's why I said he could use information only friends would know to warn them. He'd have to make it up on the spot and trust they are smart enough to catch on. You don't need to be paranoid.

      Even on a big uni, many of my friends were in the same classes as I--but you are missing the point. The fact is you use *whatever* common history you have with them to say something they would know was wrong but Fei would not. It's not paranoid if they are actually in danger. Once again, he wouldn't have set it up in advance; he'd have to think on his feet.

      My friends do more than that just to get out of awkward social situations or tell inside jokes.

      Ok, now my friends sound like mean girls, but they are really very nerdy. Think of it like this. I am an agnostic, but I have a very religious family. So if my Aunt is around, one of my friends will bless me and ask me to pray with her. I know this means she finds it amusing that I will not tell my aunt I am a heathen. I can't openly glare and tell her to die, so I smile and tell her I treasure her friendship and that I will find a way to repay her kindness. People who didn't know us might think we were in a cult or something. Or say we are at a bar, and there is a drunk guy getting kind of handsy. He seems like the kind who might get a little violent too, so I am trying to not insult him as I edge away. I'm not trying t be mean. I just want to avoid something nasty if I can. My friend may come over and ask how I am doing to see if I am into the guy. I would tell her how much the guy reminds me of her cousin Kevin. She would know her cousin is the kind who gets mad and calls women names when they turn him down, and may get forceful when drinking. She'd find a way to get me out of there. It's that kind of thing. We don't plan it. It just happens.

      Many photojournalists still use old film cameras - I still use mine (I took photography - not photojournalism) In fact I have cameras that are at least 50 years old in my collection - because the teachers at my University taught us a love for film cameras (and you can often get better results with film than digital - although that has changed in the past few years) I don't recall seeing any CDs, but I was not really on the lookout for them - I did have to look up what an MO Disk was though as I had not seen one before (3.5 inch disks yes but we did not call them MOs where I live)

      Not only are you rude, but you don't even have the correct answer. This has been addressed by other posts. The key to understanding this scene is reading what each character is saying and reading in between the lines.

      Asami is angry because he doesn't understand why Akihito ran away for 3 days, on top of that Aki implies that the only way for him to keep Aki by his side is to take away his freedom. This would mean that he won't have Akihito's love nor is he welling to stay by Asami's side by his own choice, basically an unwilling captive partner.

      If you go back to Vol 5 Chapter 30 of the Naked truth arc you see a little bit of Asami's thoughts and his desire to have Akihito stay and love him. Asami loves Akihito's willful and independent personality and seeing him run around. More importantly that Aki does so but always comes back to him by Akihito's own free will.

      Asami enjoys and gets off on the knowledge that Akihito is receptive and finds pleasure when their having sex. By the way they interact since the Hong Kong arc, he presumes that Aki is slowly starting to love him and wants to stay by his side. This whole incident with the running away and Aki's line of Asami having to tying him up shakes Asami. It doesn't help that he thinks Aki found someone else to develop feelings to and is cheating on him.

      This whole scene boils down to:
      -bad or nonexistent communication between them concerning their relationship level.
      -wrong or confused assumptions and expectation of each other's feelings on the kind of relationship they have. ( ̄∇ ̄")

    • J Unleashed August 31, 2015 10:12 am

      I can give you the translation from the English volume and maybe it will help?

      Starting from two pages back (and omitting Akihito's moaning SFX)--

      Asami: "If there's somebody else besides me who can satisfy you, let's hear it... Akihito."

      Akihito: "There's no one... there's no one else..."

      Asami: "If you realize that... then what's confusing you...?"

      Akihito: (You're the one one confusing me) "There's... nothing..."

      Asami: "...if you can't handle it, then don't be bothered with it. Your freedom is in the palm of my hand. I won't allow you to stray out of my grasp."

      Akihito: "If that's what you want... why don't you just tie a rope around me and lock me up?"

      [Asami glares at Akihito and then drags him to his bedroom and throws him down on the bed.]

      Akihito: (I made him angry, huh...?)

      From this, my guess is that Asami thinks Akihito is saying that the ONLY WAY he would stay with Asami, is if Asami keeps him prisoner... which sounds kind of harsh and would explain why Asami was set off like that. Also, a comment Asami makes later: "The look on your face is saying you just came back after running away from home" indicates that Asami was fully aware that Akihito made attempt to leave him (Akihito denies this), so he would've found that one comment of Akihito's hurtful.

      I think the communication problem is (youse guys... don't flame me for this) more Akihito's fault. True, Asami doesn't offer any insight about their relationship, but I think he would if Akihito would just ask. When Akihito asked Asami if he would throw him out if he caused trouble for Asami's business, Asami did answer... though it was obviously an uncomfortable question for him.

      Also, twice now, Asami has straight out asked Akihito what was bothering/confusing him and the first time Akihito refused to answer... and this second time, he lied.

      Sensei commented that they really needed to have a talk, so I think we'll see that fairly soon in the future.

      Yes to this. Also this page in the next chapter speaks volumes:

      http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/you_re_my_loveprize_in_viewfinder/mh/v07/c043/3/

      This is right after the rough sex, Asami has gone to take a shower. He turns the shower off but he stays in the stall, arms braced against the wall, head hanging. He is still hurt and angry with himself for losing control. He carries that into the conversation with Kuroda, where he's clearly out of sorts. His mood doesn't really rebound until chapter 44, where he realizes Akihito is jealous of Sudou (and the smirk reappears.)

      Well, I personally don't feel like Asami or Akihito are completely innocent in this...they're both responsible for the lack of communication. I do think Akihito should have tried talking to Asami a long time ago, but I somewhat understand that he doesn't. Aki's kind of emotionally unstable and uncertain when it comes to their relationship and Asami doesn't really do anything to reassure or stabilize him and instead chooses to tease him, which results in Akihito hiding his true feelings behind a shell. And Asami probably isn't necessarily the type of guy I'd want to talk about my feelings with... xD

      And yes, Asami has asked, but that was it. He asked once and when he didn't get an answer he instantly proceeded to sexy time - I guess I would have inquired a bit more if I were him, not let up on it that easily (based on the assumption that Asami is seriously interested of course...or maybe Aki's ass just seemed more interesting at the point of time ^^). But then, Akihito probably just should have come out and said what bothered him. So I guess they're both at fault in their own ways.

      But one way or the other, I've been waiting for them to have a conversation like forever...That comment of Yamane-sensei you quoted gives me hope, thanks for sharing it. :)

    • Anoni Grrl
      August 31, 2015 5:31 pm

      I think for Asami's POV, Aki's been running hot and cold and being moody without explanation, and then Aki makes a crack about being a prisoner after having run away without explanation. Asami goes all the way to Hong Kong to personally rescue Aki, vowing that he will bring Aki closer to him at home. Then, Aki takes his time coming to live with Asami, claiming it's only temporary and that he is a "maid" or some nonsense. Sometimes Aki is hot and demanding sex, and others he is cold and claiming he doesn't want any of it.

      That week, Aki came home late smelling of wine and talking about how Asami hasn't been home enough. The next night, Aki does this weird staring thing and tries to lock himself in his room, and won't tell Asami why. After that, Asami plies Aki with sushi and Aki is all over Asami--Aki even says he doesn't run away from his target. Then Aki runs away for 3 days without a word. Aki is finally brought home in disgrace and Aki won't meet Asami's eyes. Asami makes Aki admit some feelings, but then Aki throws out the "hold me prisoner" crap--and Asami's about had it with that. From Asami's shoes, it must seem like Aki is playing with him. Can you image Asami accepting that from anyone else?

      Most people in Asami's world want Asami (or want something from him). People are always playing up to him, trying to get next to him, or get something from him. Asami tends to express his affection with actions. In some ways he is as reluctant to admit his feelings as Aki is. For all his faults, Asami thinks he is being very patient with Aki, and Aki doesn't see that.

      I also agree Asami seemed relieved and happy when he figured out that Aki was jealous. I think Asami is also concerned about Aki's desire to be independent and useful. Asami is actually trying to be supportive, in Asami's high-handed, alpha male way.

      August 30, 2015 4:46 pm

      Different strokes for different folks. I think Asami has become more aware of his feelings for Aki, but that Aki's emotional growth is the focus of the story. We do get some reveals about Asami's past and some hints as to how he go to be who he is, but he is already strong and at the top of his game. I don't find Asami boring, because I wonder about how he was when he was Aki's age, what draws him to Aki, and what makes people so loyal to him. Sometimes I admit I think Aki is stupid (no offense to those of you who will tell me why he isn't--I still see what I see), but I do like his spirit. Aki's is independent, he is just all heart and no head. It's a yin/yang attraction of light and dark, exuberance of youth and experience of maturity, and of good intentions and bad business.

    • Anonymous August 30, 2015 7:24 pm

      Sadly, I agree in some points...A mysterious character is fair enough, but after such a long time I feel like I'd need some kind of variation, in some shape or form. Asami may be at the top of his game, but he's by no means perfect and could develop and learn a thing or two. He's a little too mysterious for my taste, as in, we don't really know much about him but there's not enough hints at anything beyond the surface of what we know to keep me interested. And yes, he is pretty much the epitome of a seme, and that also means he combines a lot of tropes and cliches you see often. But well, he's still hot so at least we get some eye candy. xD

      As for his and Akihito's relationship, I wouldn't necessarily call it awful, as there are parts of it that I love and at times I ship the hell out of them, but then there are things about it that I really don't like, so I'm pretty torn.

      I like psychological stories too, so maybe that's why I enjoyed the Hong Kong arc most, as anything having to do with Feilong sorta slips into the psychological department. ^^

    • Anonymous August 31, 2015 3:36 am

      Akihito doesn't have the messed up background like Nirasawa in Bi no Isu. I think Bi no Isu is more similar to Saezuru Tori ha Habatakanai where the character's messed up pasts manifests in current behavior. The psychological problems the characters have are actual characters in those stories. I mean Nirasawa begs for Kabu's attention and makes life decisions (joining the yakuza) based on his love for Kabu, whereas Akihito doesn't. Akihito usually does not base his decisions on wanting to please Asami. I like both stories but I think they are different. I like Asami because he shows that he can be a ruthless businessman (he doesn't seem to run a yakuza clan) but still places Akihito high in his life. Just my opinion.

    • eworth August 31, 2015 12:18 pm

      Agree with Anoni Girl (except maybe I'd say Akihito is less stupid than he is reckless and thinks after he acts. Okay, maybe that's just another way of saying he's stupid but I adore him anyway. Nobody has a heart as big as Akihito.) But wanted to add that I think this is a very psychological story, perhaps more subtle than others and not on Fei Long's operatic level.

      This is a relationship that is still developing and psychology definitely comes into play. See the thread above "Okay, why is Asami so angry here?"

      We talked a few days ago about the light and dark concept in this relationship. That creates the tension that drives the story. On the surface, the bulk of power seems to be in Asami's column. But if you look at scenes like the one discussed above, you see that Asami is not all-powerful. He can be easily hurt--hurt by the one he loves. And Akihito has yet to fully understand the power that he holds in this relationship. That is what keeps me glued to the page.

      You sure that's what they meant in this context? I don't know, it seems like a strange thing to point out...wouldn't that consequently mean semes can't be bi? Also the phrase "Semes don't eat cake" kinda makes it sound like ukes DO, and I'm not sure that makes sense.

      Well, if he was straight, then he probably had a girlfriend or two in the past - so it is likely that he ate cake (in the past - hahaha) These rules are not necessarily hard and fast (more double entendres for you)

    I was rereading the manga and this scene right down here was asami first time reacting pitiless toward his employee. Asami eyes and body language said it all. When asami said to Sudou "you not crying again". I felt slightly sorry for him cause poor Sudou just had his dream and feeling crushed by no other than the big boss man. http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/you_re_my_loveprize_in_viewfinder/mh/v07/c039/6/

      I think it is an interesting contrast that Aki would never cry to get Asami's sympathy, nor make declarations about what he would do for Asami. However, when push comes to shove, Sudou is lying and Aki is the one who will do for Asami.

    • Anon August 29, 2015 11:16 am

      Not only would Aki not cry to get sympathy, he wouldn't want Asami's sympathy. He would spit, fight and loudly vow to fix things himself. That's the spunk and spirit Asami is drawn to, not this wet dishrag stuff.

      Sudou has already screwed up a number of times and is running a side business Asami disapproves of. And now he's lying about something huge and Asami knows it. What is Asami supposed to do? Give him a hug and tell him "There, there. Go ahead and steal from me. It's okay."

      What I've never understood about this storyline is why Asami gave Sudou so many second chances. The club manager who let his activities get photographed in volume one didn't get any second chances.

      Tokidoki, wasn't it hilarious how the camera was shaking during the sex scene to indicate thrusting movements? That cracked me up, because it reminded me so much of the "old" Star Trek series. They didn't have the techinical equipment or a big budget back then. So whenever there was an "ionic storm" or something, Captain James T. Kirk and crew would threw themselves all over the place and the camera would shake to simulate the "storm". The sex part in the new animix looked just like that. :D Quite endearing, really. Very "old school", lol.

    Asami respect aki even though, he make fun of him sometime, he admire his inner strength even though, he wonder what is it that make aki so determine and he acknowledge him as his chosen one, why not acknowledge him as his equal?

      Asami loves Aki's spirit, and part of that is his naivete. At that point, Aki responds "I..hate you" but if you go to the next page...

      Aki is maturing enough to realize his feelings, but he is still a novice in the business world.

    • Anonymous August 28, 2015 5:55 pm

      He could be afraid of losing Akihito which is why he keeps him on emotional edge at times. At the end of the Hong Kong arc after being reunited, Asami thinks about how he will bind Akihito so that he will only love him. Both scanlated and official versions show this.

    • eworth August 28, 2015 5:58 pm

      Well, yeah. And Akihito is aware of that part, at least. He's always thinking stuff like that. "Must not get sucked into this man's darkness" and so forth. But no matter how hard he tries to resist, he can't keep away. In this case, to take J Unleashed's thought, the flame is every bit as attracted to the moth.

      This tension between light and dark is what drives this story, even though it leans heavily towards dark. Right now, the imbalance of power between Akihito and Asami makes it feel like there's really only one outcome, that Akihito will fall into darkness. He's already compromised himself for Asami. After he had that moment in chapter 47 where he realized his value was as a part of Asami's private life, the challenge is can he stay with Asami and not be tarnished by that dark side?

    • Anonymous August 28, 2015 7:17 pm

      Sensei has used the abyss as any allegory (don't know if this is the correct term) in this arc to make the point that Akihito has been warned by his own thoughts and Asami, but still choses to be at his man's side.

    • Radactyl
      August 28, 2015 5:50 am

      It's been a long time since I've read this chapter, but in essence Akihito isn't used to anal sex, as well trying to spite Asami by refusing. Asami pulls out and does something gentle to Akihito to get him yearn for the stronger sensation of anal penetration. Essentially Asami is training Akihito by associating anal sex with gentleness, switching back and forth between a strong sensation and a softer one. Akihito comes to realizes the stronger pleasure behind anal sex and in turn, succumbs to it.

    • Aoki Kurokawa August 28, 2015 9:35 am

      It's just that in the beginning Akihito isn't used of Asami's love ... "rape". That's why he refused him but in the end, he unconsciously accepted. And we know the evolution next. Back to Radactyl's discription.

    • eworth August 28, 2015 3:11 pm

      My interpretation: This is the first time Akihito has come directly, willingly to Asami but it is only to ask for Asami's help to save his friends. Asami is kind of forced into an admission of feelings maybe he didn't even know he had ("I can't allow you to go") which he then tries to deny ("You don't have that kind of value.") Proceed to Asami's answer to everything: sex, where Asami tells Akihito that yes, they are lovers. (It's even more direct in the book translation.)

      But Akihito goes into his tradition of denial when Asami penetrates him, there at the top of page 29 where he's trying to push Asami away. But Asami isn't going to let him get away with pretending he doesn't like it this time. He's going to make Akihito admit openly that he wants it as much as Asami does. So Akihito is reacting to Asami teasing him by alternating between penetration and oral stimulation until Akihito is forced to ask him not to pull out again, admitting that yes, this is what he wants.

      "Yes, that's enough, my cute Akihito," means "Enough of these games. We are lovers."

      Yeah. That. Asami is making Akihito submit, and Akihito begins to realize what's happening about half way through. It takes a little more to get him to yield though. Their relationship did not start off well, so even though fate keeps throwing them together, there's a considerable amount of resistance on both sides.
