The way Sakaki looks at Yuki...I think I need a fan. Seriously, I love the story. If you're looking for the dangerous alpha falling for the sexy lover, then this manga is for you.

    ...except that Yuki is totally a little girl on the inside. He even says it himself after being rescued. Normally I don't think crybabies are hot, but Yuki's crying scene totally worked
    Am I wrong for thinking Yuki is incredibly sexy in that kimono? No, I'm not because it's awesome.
    I love the line about how women won't leave Sakaki alone- if I saw a guy like that, I'd probably throw myself at him too.

      I especially like your last sentence.. If Sakaki were real, I'd definitely be there.

    Yuki and Sakaki resemble asami and takaba from viewfinder!"which I adored!

  13. HOLYSHIT May 22, 2015 1:11 pm

    laughed too hard at that band aid scene!!!!! Oh Rin-san you need to clarify your words Anyway, I'm a sucker for im-not-good-enuff-4-u-lets-break-up scene. Then the other party will do something outrageous to prevent that from happening. And YAKUZAS omygod!!! Idk man i like cliche shits like that

    Maybe if I write the manga author and beg pleading while on my knee's
    The manga author will write/draw the sequel of yuki as the yakuza wife/partner/bonding ....life ..can imagine body guards in (your princess ) getting under foot ..you know the conflict and Yuki's temper would be bone hell of a story

    • VolcanoFan1
      January 22, 2016 5:14 pm

      Yes, it would be! Even another sequel where they are bringing up their kids. Neither would be a parent that teachers at school would annoy lightly :D(⊙…⊙ )

    I'm surprised! in spite of the cliche, I liked it and read it as soon as I finished my first read! Yuki, an alpha male host who speaks his mind in addition to holding himself very well, works in a club called (Your princess), isn't it supposed to be (your princes?). One night where he was taking a customer for dinner, he meets the handsome Sakaki when some of Sakakai Hosts attach a co-worker of Yuki. It seems the formidable and the Yakuza heir has was captured by Yuki's handsome looks and the way he carries himself. Their relationship takes a toll when Yuki gets an anonymous letter with pictures of Sakaki holding and kissing different men. He gets angry and lash at Sakaki telling him that he doesn't sleep for fun. The second event comes into place when Yuki decided to break up with Sakaki in order for Sakakai to succeed without any complications or embarrassment. Both of which cements their relationship and I would say the final scene, where both of them meet the leader and Sakaki introduces Yuki as the person who would spend his life with is the climax. Such strong scene is worth the read. The supporting cast was great and all of them, added an additional layer to the story in addition to some comedy relief. On the other hand, the drawings are not up to the bar, it seems that the facial features lack additional lines as they seem washed out!

    I keep coming back, I love it so much!! >0<
    Goodness the way they pout!! Just Look at Rin-san when he asks Ayumu if he won't pleasure him in bed anymore ... OMG OMG OMG ***************
    I want to ask - is it, in anyway, believable this thing about the Yakuza's wives, I mean, can a guy replace a woman in Japanese mob - would it depend on how serious the relationship is OR this whole shebang is nothing more than manga fantasy? O.O

    • Anonymous December 17, 2014 9:48 pm

      I believe it's a manga fantasy ^^"

  20. Fujisaki Kaoru October 31, 2014 2:23 pm

    Sakaki look like asami from "you're my loveprize in viewfinder" and the way yuki acting cute when he with sakaki it's really make me remember the way Akihito be with asami when Akihito drunk ... It's really cute ...
