Ace marketer, Ishikawa, out-performs everyone in the marketing department of this highly competitive firm, but when he has a bad day, he takes out his frustrations by sexually assaulting his gay co-worker, Takayama, who has just landed a big contract. Will Takayama be able to turn this into victory? Tsunoda Ryoku always spins a good story, and her workplace dramas actually involve people working at their jobs. This one requires moving past the rape-trope (which Blue claims — April 24, 2014 10:27 pm, http://www.mangago.com/home/mangatopic/520995/ — was incorrectly translated according to her licensed copy), but unlike most of these sorts of stories, this one ends with a more equal power distribution than it starts off with. It's worth reading for that alone.

    While again we see the regular rape scene in yaoi not being addressed properly (I kind of gave up but I feel if I don't point it out some hater will) I really enjoyed the relationship growth between the characters. I really like this Uke in this story. I like fun and mature ukes who have a strong willed. Either way a fun yaoi that I totes suggest! XD

      The rape trope in yaoi is like the trope in romance novels where a woman gets swept off her feet by a gorgeous man--not because of his kindness or affection for her, but because they're in a dangerous situation. The rape trope in yaoi is common because it's something that seems out of the control of the weaker party--generally the uke--when the person either cannot or will not face their feelings otherwise. There's a lot of psychology behind it, but mostly, it just works and people still read it.

      I also feel like its yaoi mangaka easy way out to express dark emotions like extreme possessiveness, frustration, jealousy, anger, ect. I do understand that humans can do things that they don't mean while under the influence of certain emotions. It pains me that the seme ( who is usually portrayed as masculine) usually hurts his partner with these emotions, while the uke (who is portrayed as the feminine) usually is more subtle about it or confronts the seme.
      I recently read a yaoi in which in one of the stories there was a seme who was actually pretty possessive of the uke. BUT the approached he use was great. He pretended to not let it bother him that the uke's ex still had beer in his fridge, instead he drank it all to get rid of it. A scene later the seme the uke and the ex(who is the seme's friend) are all out for lunch and the seme acts like a gentle man and pulls the chair next to him so the uke can sit down... AWAY from the ex. And he was so sly about it too! XD It was a refreshing take on possessiveness.

      What was that one called? Can you remember it? I understand the trope, but it's nice to read something other than it once and a while.

    The fact that so many people find Ishikawa raping Takayama acceptable boggles my mind. I can't fully fathom why Takayama himself found it to be okay. The story suffered from what I like to call "stupid couple syndrome"; When one or the other keeps doing stupid shit yet they keep coming back together in the end, THAT is stupidity at its finest.

    If this was a real life rape situation, do you think all of you would still be saying they're a "cute couple"? For Takayama to willingly choose to be with someone like Ishikawa only shows how weak of a person he really is.

    I don't particularly have anything against the rape theme in yaoi manga because it usually doesn't continue beyond the rape scene, but in situations like this I don't like when everyone is screaming their support of a clearly unhealthy relationship between two men who don't know any better. (there is NO "good reason" to violate someones body)

    And before people start yelling at me: none of us are right or wrong here. In the end we all believe what we want to believe.

      Yeah, the way the uke shrugged it off as if he'd had his lunch money stolen had me like lol wtf. Maybe it's because he was attracted to that guy to start with and that's why he didn't mind.

      And the part where the seme said "all gays are disgusting except you" was really annoying. The seme was really annoying, a total slimebucket, and the uke was way too forgiving.

      Judging by the comments though, a lot of people liked it. Idk, just wasn't my cup of tea this time.

    I don't get it . Lots of people don't like the storyline . Ishikawa's a lot like a kid and that makes him look so cute . He might be so full of himself and stupid but reading it till the end , I can see how Ishikawa changes from every chapter .
    It shows that people can change , where's the wrong ?

    P/s : Forced sex feels damn good for the seme(s)

  11. Eye4 March 23, 2015 5:35 am

    The seme.. The plot annoys the crap out of me! Really! What kind of excuse is that, "I'm frustrated let me rape my coworker!" And no repercussions whatsoever must be nice

    • Ray
      March 23, 2015 1:50 pm

      Ahaha ... Forced sex sounds good to me ... for the seme , I mean .

  12. KattCleo March 23, 2015 1:46 am

    .. that was the worst excuse to rape someone in a BL manga I've ever read. Like, wtf. And I've heard many pathetic ones. Ok, I've heard worse, but the worst part is that this one takes itself seriously. Usually the stories with bizarre rape excuses are outright stupid, laughable and are just there for the laughs and the smut. But, WTF man?!? He vented out his stress by raping his gay coworker who FOR ONCE did good at his job? OII, THAT'S STILL A CRIME!! WHY IS THE UKE TAKING IT SO LAUGHABLY, even if he didn't get emotionally scarred, if that's how the seme takes his stress out, then he was dropped more than once as a baby... HOW CAN YOU FALL FOR SOMEONE SO BATSHIT CRAZY?!?

      Actually the seme's so stupid he's cute . Matured ukes understand so that means you're just not matured enough to understand ...

    Ishikawa is the proof that Neanderthals have some hidden charm, LOL.

  14. Anonymous March 22, 2015 10:49 am

    It was pretty terrible. Not only did the seme rape the uke it was treated like it was nothing. The characters had no chemistry and their relationship does not seem like it will last long.

    • Ray
      March 23, 2015 1:54 pm

      Okay on that 'will not last long' maybe true ... But as you can see Ishikawa's trying his best to love Motoi with all his heart . We can see that in the final chap , where Ishikawa said he wants to live with Motoi . Ain't that sweet ?

      Thanks for the tip. I really liked that last chapter, and it left me with a better appreciation for Ishikawa and showed how much he'd come to love Takayama. Plus, it included the author afterward, which is always fun to read.

  18. Anon September 27, 2014 8:46 pm

    "All other gays are disgusting. I only want you", seriously? This line bothers me.

    • Zz October 4, 2014 7:15 pm

      Although it made as jokes but I can agree with you...as a Gay myself, I found this kinda....disturbing? but oh well, didn't take it seriously

      Yeah me too but I think that considering how backwards Japan is about sexuality ( not that America is a hotbed of tolerance when it comes to LGBTQ but still) it makes sense-I would have prefered other guys instead- maybe the mangaka wanted to portray Ishikawa as somewhat crass and his intolerant attitude a factor in causing Takayama to fear getting involved-

    • Anonymous March 23, 2015 9:40 am

      Yeah... a better line would be "I'm not interested in other guys. I only want you."

    cant believe how funny this is :D great story and I love the art - the funny faces are drawn incredibly

  20. soulofalover May 25, 2014 3:40 am

    I've always heard that if one of the parties says "NO", if u still go ahead, then IT IS rape; the uke said "Stop this" at least twice... It is true however, that the uke did not make a real fuss about stopping this forceful act - he has already considered (in his mind) that the guy was in fact his type - however, he was surprised and laughed to realize that the rapist's "venting of his frustrations" showed an emotional maturity no better than the one of his colleagues' ... he was as weak as the others he looked down upon!

    As for the last chapter, it's FAR FROM OVER ... pllllzzzz update ASAP!! Grx! :)
