I like this a lot. I've reread it multiple of times and I never got bored of it- I'm not sure why. It's not the best manga but somehow I can't get enough of it. I wish there's more and the Sawatari's lil bro, he's handsome, alright. I too, wish there's a story about him. :) Over all, I like this manga.

Interval is a side story but turns out to be the most famous one of this series. (。^‿^。)
The sweet & touched doujin completes the original story as it clarifies the complicated MC.

    Wow, so many good reviews. But I can't just seem to like it cuz of the rape and the uke falling in love with the rapist plot. I know it's a common plot in yaoi, but the uke clearly didn't want it and there's even blood http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/interval/an/interval-chapter-3.html/32/
    Well, people have their own preferences, who am I to judge. ╮( ̄▽ ̄)╭

    Yeah, this was just simply genious, this so extremlopp well written. Im truly impressed with the mangakas ability to creative such a deep and complex story in such few chapters. Every time I read it I get a new perspective of it. This is some serious talent there. Personally I think that the uke had already at least started to developed deeper feelings for the seme long before their relationship started to get "closer" so to speak. There are so much depth in this story, and it gives a very accurate look in to the human mind. Shows a lot of understanding of human psychology. So I'm gona advice everyone to read it, and then read it again and again. This is far from your average fluffy, shallow story. I also really enjoy the style of drawing, Sawatari is HOOOOT! ლ(´ڡ`ლ)

    So conclusion, this is a masterpice.

    I wanted to hate Sawatari, but I love his cruel sadistic nature. I do not agree with the way he chose to express his unrequited love towards Ayumu, but I love his demeaning manner of teasing. Why am I a masochist?┗( T﹏T )┛

    Just so we're clear, my favorite part in the entire thing is Ch. 5 pg. 29 on the top right corner. The thing about his face.

    Now my favorite chapter on the other hand, was Ch. 5.5, which is sexy overload.

    Just so we're clear.

    Also, I'm pretty sure his friend who supposedly hates homosexuals is gay so yeah. That long, black haired guy who keeps breathing in his ear or whatever is definitely his partner, and if he isn't I will scream.

    (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ I love this manga

    • Fura September 3, 2015 12:49 am

      Of course he is, didn't you read the afterwords ?
      Taka was a gay hater because he was in love with the girl who's a fujoshi... But he ended up being hit on by a guy and got together with him in another manga, Interval is its spin off

      Comment got downvoted because duh, everyone knows this already. And because other readers are smart enough to know that within the context of the story, these elements function as metaphors.

    • joo November 24, 2015 6:34 am

      Metaphor? That's a really lame way to attempt to legitimize rape as an act of romantic love. I've seen instances of dubious consent in other manga that clearly do further the story of a serious relationship. This wasn't one of them.

      The 147 people who tagged this manga as a romance, and the 97 who tagged it as hot - as well as those who put it on hot & possessive lovers lists - got off on it. I think that's really troubling. But hey, if all you got out of my objection is that I'm not as smart as you, good on ya, li'l buckaroo.

      lol m8, this is only a metaphor. But I agree with you in some parts, rape or whatever you just said is not romance. And again, it's only a metaphor, this story is not telling us to rape our love ones, our crushes, or whatever, it's not telling us to force them either.

    • joo December 6, 2015 5:53 pm

      I'm not suggesting that the manga was intended as an instruction manual. What I am saying is that eroticizing abuse does affect the reader. It normalizes it and attaches an attractive sexualization to it. I'm not as concerned about older adult readers, whose self-image and tastes have already been formed, but younger readers are still establishing their own identities.

      I'm not even remotely fond of censorship, and I think teens should have as much access to smut as they like - they're already becoming sexual beings - but they're still developing. I think that sexualizing/romanticizing abuse may have formative consequences for these readers, as evidenced by all the squeeing over the kind of abuse that no one should ever tolerate in real life.

      Ravishment fantasies have existed in the human psyche long before literature caught up with them. So it's the fantasy that has created the literature, not the other way around. It's a highly normative fantasy that is a healthy part of human sexuality, particularly for women. Literature like this provides a safe place for women to explore those feelings. Or it SHOULD, without people like you, weighed down by negative social baggage, criticizing them. If you don't have faith that readers know the difference between fiction and reality, that is your problem, not the book's. Normalizes, shmormalizes. If that was the case, then Hannibal or The Godfather or American Psycho or any number of other works of fiction are problematic, no? No. People aren't that stupid and they don't need a nanny to tell them what they should and shouldn't read.

      Thank you, I was about to say same thing but you said it better than me. Many women do have such fantasies and this is one way for them to live their fantasies in a healthy manner while they still would never accept being raped as something they want to happen to them. I have full confidence that most people who read mangas like these know the difference between wrong and right when it comes to real life. People should really search "rape fantasies"....it is so common among adult women.

    • Kjlbob January 24, 2016 10:35 pm

      thanks a logical comment. to all of you who are using the excuse this is a metaphor, a fantasy, blah, blah. let me tell you japan's eternal problem since ancients times: in japanese society does not take rape seriously. in japan rape get an unusual green light for it, even from authorities. I'm a former human rights advocates of 15+, and I deal a lot with human traffik and sexual crimes. Japan always have problems with sexual crimes. but japanese society is one of shame and appearances. the reason why japan show low statistics is because of the fear of all types victims suffer and never report it. but the reality is japan is one of the highest in rape in Asia and there's a possibility worldwide. Japan has been always a favorite tourist place for pedos and perverts in general. japaneses government always put an effort to hide under the rugs instead of dealing with it. one thing clear is that manga/anime fans are the most ignorants and clueless about japanese sexual crimes. just in 2014 child porn material was illegalized finally, BUT manga got a free pass.

      educate yourselves:

      You could make that argument anywhere? Like seriously, written paper material anywhere that involves "fantasized rape", and the country would have sexualized crimes behind it. Manga is probably only a small part of it, but the fact that its online and open is why you're only targeting Japan, trying to make a "point".

      shut up kid! I'm a former human rights activist that I started before internet became available to many people (mid 90's). I know too well the problems from countries all over the world. We are talking about japan because is where most mangas are created. And like any form of art is influenced by the good and bad from where writers grew up. In US you see the rape culture through tv, like reality shows, music, etc. In Japan this is show in mangas and anime. and this particular problem in japan comes from ancients times that perpetuates to this day. those links I posted are from one of the most important organizations created by a japanese women and is still a leading orgs dealing with womens rights in Japan and Asia. do yourself a favor, EDUCATE yourself. trying to talk about rights to a human rights activist its like trying to talk about diseases to a doctor, education to a teacher, science to scientists, etc. you get what I mean kiddo?!?! I don't try to make any point for the exception to educate about serious problems to indifferent sheeples people like you. anime and mangas fanatisism is not different to that of sports, religion fanatism. too many japanese women and men suffer daily because of it, and also foreign, especially those with immigrant status problems. men have it hard since japanese law don't consider rape anal sex or anything that isn't vagina-penis.

      apart from the green light japanese society gives to sexual crimes; japaneses police are well know to ignore all crimes that doesn't have clear evidence at hands, to keep the statistics low and keep bragging to the world about low crimes. can you imagine low crime with the mafia in Italy, US, Colombia or countries where they are?!?! nope right, then why suddenly in japan with yakuzas are low.. . this is just a little example. but wonder if kids like you can actually get it. done here and don't bother to whine back, just fucking educate yourself for fuck's sakes >.>

      It's interesting that you say people who don't agree with you need psychotherapy. What do you tell people in your everyday day life when they don't agree with you... something like "I'm not your friend anymore"? Lol!! There are sooooo many stories that have sooo many people make these same comments that its old hat. You're the only one who decided that other people who don't agree with you need mental help. Interesting and kinda of a bratty attitude. People can read stories and have a positive or negative reaction to such stories and have their own opinions, BUT its insulting to some to suggest therapy in such a way as you did.

      I've worked in sexual assault services, legal education and action funds and crisis intervention for years and building and supporting women's shelters. You're blowing smoke out your ass if you think that reading fictional accounts of rape in yaoi manga or any other romance genre is anything like the actual experience of actual sexual assault in real life.

      Hey. Trying to make anyone feel guilty about something they read and enjoy is also a violation in a way. It's like saying Only my opinion counts and you're trash and not worthwhile because you like this stuff. I actually was raped when I was younger and I still occasionally read some stories like this. If I come across a story that is TOO much I quit reading it. I don't bash the story or the other readers for liking it because I don't have the right to judge them for that.

      You aren't the only one, Wow. I bet if you took a straw poll of the readers on this site, the numbers of girls, women, men and boys who've been assaulted or molested or harassed would reflect those in the general reading population. The fact that so many survivors do read these stories is proof that the experience exists in a different paradigm—one largely ruled by control, something which does not exist in real rape. Control is also one of the keys to why so many rape survivors actually find fictional accounts like those in romance and yaoi therapeutic, even healing, something which flies against conventional wisdom. But that's how it goes.

      Like you, I click out when I don't like the story. I don't need to shame people for finding their tensions released in stories that are too much for me. Sometimes I will leave a comment to remind me why I didn't like the story, but it's usually ticked "for private viewing only".

      Thank you. And you're right. They aren't going after other media for displays of vicious violence because they know they haven't got a hope in hell of convincing anyone.

      LOL, nope, still can't prove that racy manga has yaoi fangirls going off raping people. Keep squeezing that shit out your buttcheeks, troll, and calling it sugar, though. Other trolls like Kjerkoff will eat it up. When you're done shouting and trying (unsuccessfully, but hell, that never stops idiots like you) to slut-shame girls and women, do you also prowl playgrounds looking for unsupervised kids to abduct? Or has the psychosis not advanced to that stage yet? Reddit's must have gotten boring now that they're shutting down the MRA sites.

      Websites don't mean jack when people aren't paying any attention to them, and so far the response from the Japanese government to your "activism" has been a big yawn, and the kick in the pants, "It's fiction."

      In other words, they think you're psychotic to confuse fiction with real life, just like the rest of us. You have to prove causation, not just correlation. Meantime, manga keeps getting more popular and more profitable.

      If that's so any video games like GTA or any violent video game heck even anime with gore
      are doing the same. Or how people say Pokemon promotes animal abuse.
      You don't see me getting pissed though and shaming people that are most likely very young. One of my close family members was shot and killed in a robbery at a local store one day they were alive the next dead, I'll never hear or see him again.

      Instead of staying here venting on a book, go out there,
      do something that will effect the world instead of going on a not very well known site.
      For example those actual rapist that got a get out of jail free card. Protest against them.

      Toad already supported her claims to activism on various threads from way back and has also provided more specific examples of work in Amsterdam and on Vancouver's East Side, among other places. It is not incumbent on any member of this site to provide details that may dox their identities and shame on you for demanding it.

      Besides, the sort of censorship you advocate was already quashed by the US Supreme Court in 1964 with Grove Press, Inc. v. Gerstein, citing Jacobelli vs. Ohio. If the US government, with its culture wars and evangelical block voters, won't even support it, good luck trying to strong-arm Japan into doing so.

      Your claims to activism sound exactly like old-fashioned censorship to me, exactly the opposite of human rights. You seek to silence women. Yaoi is written by women for women, and the rape trope in yaoi is a form of the ravishment fantasy scenario. We know this because the readers who enjoy the rape trope in yaoi tell us so. Yaoi isn't the only place where you will find it, either. It is popular in every form of romance fiction, as well as ordinary fiction. It is a popular trope, not only in manga, literature and other forms of art, but in Classical art, mythology, and history. Look up the Sabine Women. It was even turned into a hugely popular musical and a movie that won an Academy Award.

      Why? Because 60 per cent of women claim to experience the ravishment fantasy as part of their sex lives and they are quite healthy and sane. They are probably a good deal more comfortable with their sexuality than you, from the sound of it, so good luck trying to shame them into dropping the trope. There are ample studies to support this which have been quoted in past discussions. Look them up. Do your homework, "activist", before making claims that you cannot substantiate.

      Speaking of substantiation, you and your "activist" friend were asked to provide evidence to support your claims that yaoi readers "promote rape" (your words) and you haven't done so. You haven't drawn that all important link between the ravishment fantasy and rape tropes in yaoi manga and the actual perpetration of sexual crimes. You haven't shown any examples of yaoi readers who have perpetrated sexual violence as a result of reading rape trope yaoi manga. You can't because it doesn't exist, because it hasn't happened, and there isn't a reader on this site who doesn't know this, except you. Rape tropes do not promote sexual violence, and you cannot prove that they do. Your hypothetical statements that there is a connection are invalid and unsupportable.

      And you have a "friend-who-was-raped" whataboutery. There are survivors on this site who contradict you directly. They have as much freedom to read whatever manga as you. I don't think anybody is sorry that your "friend's" rapist got sent to jail, if that happened. Were you expecting us to defend him or feel sorry? Sorry to disappoint, but no. Nobody supports real life sexual violence, and most of us (apart from a few like you) know the difference between fiction and fantasy.

      This manga also has a warning label, strongly indicated rape-trope tag and many, many spoilers and reviews to ward off readers who are triggered. There is no excuse for any responsible adult to read this who does not want to read a rape-trope story. Tort does not apply if you cannot be bothered to heed the warnings.

      To sum up: You are no human rights activist. You want to censor art and free speech, which is the antithesis of human rights.

      The rape trope is not a promotion of rape in real life, but an expression of the ravishment fantasy and a healthy aspect of female sexuality. If you claim otherwise, you don't understand female sexuality.

      You don't do your homework. You don't substantiate your claims. When you cannot substantiate your claims, so you
      "shout at girls on the internet" instead. Psssst, it isn't effective, because most women who read yaoi have long since gotten past being shamed about their sexuality.

      The warning labels are there for a reason. If you're on an adult site and cannot take adult responsibility for what you read, you have no business being here.

      Except the part where I misread "hospital" as "prison". Too bad, if they had succeeded in sending the rapist to prison, that would've been impressive, because I know how hard it is. Sending him to hospital doesn't make them any different than him. Here, she's ranting against girls who read yaoi for "promoting rape" and, in the same breath, confessing online to criminal assault. How stupid can you get?

      Toad wades right in. I mostly sit back and watch her do the lifting.

      Japan does not need outside help to deal with their social issues. a lot of rapes go unreported in the west, Middle East, Afr. Central America and EU not just JPN. there are many reasons a victim does not come forward, far to many to state here. One being no support system and shame and death, In the many places the victim will be blamed . Rape is as old as man(and woman) and just as complex it has long been used as a tool of war. Manga did not invent it , neither did Japan. when the French do it ( the filmed rape scene) they call it art and get away with it.

      Hello. Gosh, I go offline for awhile because I have a life, and it ends up being Mardi Gras on the interwebs (as concerns this Little Corner of Yaoi.)

      Which serious commenter? Would that be the first one, Joo, who crapped all over the manga, then crapped over everyone who downvoted her, and after her arguments were systematically dismantled and it became clear she was intellectually outgunned, flounced?

      Troll.

      Or, was that Kjibob-formerly-known-as-kjirkoh, the "former activist" whose account is a total sock-puppet (possibly that of Joo), came here to crap all over Japan and make fallacious connections between its cultural industries and nonexistent sexual assault stats, and to crap all over the readers here for not buying into her bigoted and female-sexuality-averse pet project, in some misguided dog-whistle bump up the stats on some external websites which may or may not have anything to do with her? And who, then, when challenged on the core premise of her arguments, that Japan (and, by extension, ALL of Asia) needs to be singled out and that there is some sort of magical leap between reading yaoi and raping people, flounced?

      Total troll. And bigot. And idiot who doesn't understand what human rights really mean.

      Or, would that be the last troll who rolled in after I was gone for my evening, XXX, staunch self-styled "ghetto defender" of those "po' l'il women-folk" who can't defend themselves or their arguments (ie., probably an MRA Schmucktivist) and ... yeah, yeah, how young do you have to be to believe any of that crap, so let's drop that ... and, rather obviously, tried to taunt me into doxxing myself? Here's a big hand-clap for lame attempts to impress us with his chivalry (defending po' l'il rape victims) by (1) ignoring Wow's public testimony and completely ignoring/wiping away her feelings and experiences as a survivor, (2) admitting to probably culpable homocide online (probably fake: it sounds like the imaginary day-dream construct of a 12-year-old), (3) demanding we all suck his (nonexistent) dick, and (4) trying to cow us with how we wouldn't survive on the streets.

      Again, total troll ... and flaming asshole. It's kind of hilarious to read how he got his butt handed to him.

      That makes for zero serious commenters who are not trolls ... (I'm going to continue this in another post.)

      That's not to say there aren't serious commenters who are not trolls and who did not, for some reason, show up on this thread. There are some who just don't like the rape trope and, after saying so, leave it at that. Fine. No problem. Don't read if you don't like. There are lots of warnings and tags. Lots of "Beyond here, there be dragons." I think, as Juno pointed out, we have an expectation that, if they are lurking on an adult website which includes porn, they will act like adults and take responsibility for reading things that don't please them.

      As for the rest, I think you answered your own question: no understanding. I would add "no desire to understand because of a core and misguided belief in their moral superiority".

      If it's just a matter of not understanding, then they are willing to go through the process of learning. When they are told about ravishment fantasy being such a common experience for healthy adult women and their sexuality, they google those studies (which are plentiful) and accept that it doesn't have to be their "thing", but it doesn't make those who enjoy it, lesser in any way; it's just different. When they are challenged on their correlation equals causation fallacies, they realize that they have no evidence and cannot provide proof, so they accept the counter-arguments and bow to the wishes of those on the side of sexual liberty and freedom of artistic expression, basic human rights. When they are challenged on the notion that Japan is exceptional in any way from the rest of the world for its misbegotten and benighted attitudes toward sexual assault, and that it's cultural industries are, somehow, magically at fault for this, then they either supply proof, or they stop their useless caviling and find a truly effective way at making changes in the world, one which will make an actual difference in people's lives.

      The rest are uncomfortable with female sexuality as expressed freely and safely in a niche community. They want suppress and control it. They use demeaning language and threats, just like the trolls that tried to roll this thread. Some of them are sexist piggies. Yaoi, especially rape-trope yaoi, would be the ultimate threat to MRA schmucks as women completely dissociate from the male gaze and dominate the sexuality of the males (who are drawn for the female gaze) in their fantasy experiences. We refuse to be controlled. How dare we! LOL.

      Thumbs up.

      And not just French films. The Italians, Germans, Russians ... even the Iranians, Yemenis, Saudis ... (albeit closet cases, there) ... all of them have their stashes of fantasy material. Why do you think Daesh, El Shabob and other fundamentalist sects are working so hard to wipe out historical documents and heritage sites? Of course, they don't want any historical records left to contradict their particular brand of cultural revisionism. You won't get anyone on these boards saying there isn't such a thing as rape-culture, although most countries and feminist organizations draw a distinction between high art and general rape-culture.

      What we are challenging (successfully, so far) is the inclusion of rape-trope in yaoi within that rape-culture context, and the pivotal premise of that argument lies with the reality that yaoi is by women for women, who don't tend to go around raping people. I'm not going to say it never, ever happens, but it is so rare and aberrant, as to not really qualify as evidence, and I doubt that yaoi factors into their aberrations.

      Juno mentioned the Sabine Women, a myth or legend from the Roman era. When the mountain passes unfroze after the winter of their abduction, they were offered the chance to reunite with their former spouses and families, but were so much better-treated by the Romans, all but a handful remained in Rome. Legends and myths withstand the progress of time because they speak to the inner shared experiences of large groups of people. The literal person takes the story at face value, is horrified and reacts from that placem with censorship and suppression. The materialist hears it and assumes that it's probably a historical record of the Roman conquest and assimilation of the Etruscan people, a slightly abstracted, slightly symbolic, but still literal. It's transcendence into the realm of art has to do with how men and women alike see it as a reflection, in storybook form, of a subtle inner experience related to their perceptions of reality—one which has nothing to do with whether the physical events actually happened in real life, or whether similar experiences continue to happen in this present day. It's "spiritual", and a symbolic and collective form of communication and expression, not related to whether the Sabine women and what purportedly happened to them ever really were. This is to draw the distinction that is art, because freedom of artistic expression is a human right.

      LOL! That last line! EPIC!

      And, no. I don't mean serious commenters by any of the trolls of this topic. Sorry, it's my bad for not making it clear. I was talking about other people commenting on this mangas. I really like this manga & come back to it from time to time to re-read it. After reading it, I like going through old topics. Couldn't help noticing similar comments like the thread master of this one(Joo). Even though they are smaller in number compared to other fan comments on this manga, it always ALWAYS makes me wonder the same thing as I mentioned before. Why take a work of fiction so seriously and labeling them as "unhealthy" or "stupid". I assumed they are serious commenters or at least not trolls as they did not behave like an immature 9 year old brat spewing illogical nonsense all over a thread (like the "XXX").

      I usually try to avoid these types of arguments as much as possible as I like to keep my internet time peaceful & less irritating. But I really appreciate it when someone stands up to them with a meaningful sensible conversation, as I can't do it.

      Yeah, I don't consider Joo a serious commenter because she always flounces when it comes down to defending her attacks on readers. She can't defend them, so she acts like a 13-year-old. Bog standard troll.

      XXX, whoever that person really is on or off this site, was trying to trip me up. In a discussion forum on the internet, flinging around random links does not qualify as proof of identity. Nor does simply stating what one is or does, as in "I am an activist who works in ...". (Sorry, Juno, have to disagree with you there.) It is the overall pattern of reasoning and support and actions which add up over time: I stand against the suppression of female sexuality; I stand against suppression of free speech or artistic expression; I stand for sexual liberation as befits consenting human adults; I stand for that the rape trope in yaoi is purely symbolic, even when the story is going for verisimilitude and it's meant as a cautionary tale for adults, and that it is not meant to advocate for real life sexual assault or harassment, EVER! I stand for that yaoi readers are not rapists and do not support rape culture. In a situation like communication on this site, where the only evidence I can provide to support my claims of activism is through the use of words, I let the consistency and quality of my words over time speak for itself.

If you didn't know what kind of story it was, STOP reading it. It doesn't take rocket surgery to figure that out. Even my 4 yr old and 9 yr old sons know (regarding t.v) "hey I don't like this show.

      Ah, well, on YouTube there are these things in comment sections called "flame wars" where the original commenter posts something which rouses other users and thus starts a huge argument (and yes, there are trolls there). It's the same with Facebook.

      To be honest, it's not a bad thing that "violence and perversion in Manga" is being discussed here... it's just that this is the first time on this site that so many fangirls (who are usually peaceful, hehe) are riled up. Then again, there's a huge problem with ghost members and "puppet accounts" who sometimes troll and whatnot; this is actually the third argument chain I've seen (though none this big).

      Okay, got it. I mostly like Classical music, so that probably gets rid of most of the flame war trolls on youtube right there (although some of them get a mite sniffy over the subject of vibrato. So there's that ...)

      I like seeing fangirls say their piece. At some point or another, this sort of discussion may wind up in a legal or political challenge somewhere, and the more people understand the dynamics which underscore these subjects—what constitutes art, for example, and where does perversion cross the line—the more they can advocate for liberty and freedom of expression in a larger context. They learn that it doesn't hurt to speak up, but it hurts plenty when someone tries to suppress speech.

      I also like serious discussions aside from the fangirling, especially for darker themed and havier plotted manga (like "Mob for Jack" or "Not Equal"). The problem is that when it comes to discussions, it's less about critical analysis and understanding but more of like what is constituted as "right" and "wrong" by real world standards. That totally disregards the fact that this is literature and literature does serve as an escapist medium, a place where "right" and "wrong" can be duly expressed in a different way or completely violated. When getting into discussions with people who are too shallow to this concept, it feels like a pissing contest between what they believe and what you believe and the facts and "titles" to validate their opinions. They're practically force feeding one another their perspectives.

      That's what this thread feels like, honestly (though many points you made were pretty legit).

      LOL, I agree about literature being a venue where anything can be portrayed, even the worst depravities, and frequently is. (Not Equal is one of my favourite manga, Mob for Jack is one I had to drop because it hurt too much and I couldn't detach enough emotionally to get through it.) I LOL because, years ... no, make that decades ago, when I took a few Lit courses in this and that, I would've never dreamed I'd ever apply critical reading standards to porn, or get into flame wars on freedom of expression over porn. But that's where the most basic lines are drawn, isn't it? Where expression and creativity converge over our very self-natures, a place we cannot control through effort of will and discipline because it is the essence of who we are, our sexual fantasies, which don't necessarily mean the same things in our imaginations as they do in real life.

      But manga isn't merely literature. It is also art. Sometimes it's like admiring Bernini. Other times ... more often, to me, Egon Schiele, a big, fat, wet, slobbery raspberry blown at "normal" whatever that is. But nobody (since Hitler) says that these artists have no legitimacy. Nobody EVER said it about Bernini, but Egon Schiele became an artistic anti-hero icon because an oppressive government tried to wipe him out. His work resonated with too many people, but the ones who disliked what it said, perhaps felt it too keenly as personal criticism, did try to destroy it. This isn't belief, but a matter of historical record.

      Right now, people are trying to agitate against porny manga and shame the Japanese government into censoring it. It hasn't worked, but they keep trying. In those cases, it's important to know how to express what one feels and thinks, to develop that skill and use it to advocate and defend. I think that's why the constant reiteration of certain points sometimes feels like forcefeeding, but it's people bouncing those ideas off each other, reinforcing whether they stand up, and sparking new ones.

      No problem. The reason I wrote all that is because many other people who went through such experiences told me how they felt. There was a time when I did not believe that a survivor might actually read and enjoy rape-trope romance or yaoi fic, especially the rape=romance schtick. It was unfathomable to me. How could someone who had been so violated and hurt, who must be so angry about their experience and PTSD-ready to lash out at anyone who triggered similar feelings, appreciate and enjoy stories that reignited trauma in their lives? It made no sense.

      Boy, was I schooled!

      ... And liberated. Totally grateful to the people who set me straight on that matter, because actual experience overrides any belief or idea, any made up construct, about experience. Once I got off that high horse, I found that I had the permission to like any manga that resonated with me, just because. I never knew how inhibited I had been before.

      The only other time I was PWNed like that was over the issue of genetic predisposition toward homosexuality. I've always supported gay rights, but I never appreciated how much it mattered to me than when I was going on about how gay people can't help being gay because of their physiology and a lesbian told me to shut up. She had the same right to her sexual expression as any other consenting adult, not because of some inevitable genetic bias, but simply because. She had the right to love whomever she wanted. Of course she was right ... and what a gift, to really get that the heart rules itself.

      I'm not saying that every person who has been through the same experience as you will find manga therapeutic and a form of catharsis. I don't expect that. I expect them to respect those that do.

    This story would have captivated me MUCH more if the mangaka hadn't gone with the typical "rape= love" theme that so many yaoi manga suffer from. If someone was blackmailing me to keep their silence by forcing me to suck their dick and then allowing them to fondle and then RAPE me, I highly doubt I would fall for them over time.

    Can anyone else on this website really say they want someone else to rape them like that? Keep in mind I'm not talking about a 'rape role play/fantasy' with their lover. I'm talking about straight up violation of your body without your consent. Would you fall in love with your rapist?

    Also keep in mind that I'm aware that both of the men in this story had twisted/complicated feelings towards one another all along. But no matter what the situation is the seme still had NO right to force himself on the uke. If he wanted his attention then why not just SAY SOMETHING?? Raping your crush doesn't exactly scream 'I love you'

      I don't think this story was saying rape means love. It's how you interpret it and everyone interprets love differently.

      I think you have missunderstood slightly. The uke was already in love with the seme way before the rape. The intrest was definitly there already before the blackmailing. So this is far from your typisk rape=love story and more rape doesnt nessecary means the love dies. Whitch is actually really realistic.

      I haven't misunderstood anything. I stated that the characters had complicated feelings all along. I was making a point: rape and manipulation aren't okay under any circumstances.

      Ah, right. I interpreted your comment as if you meant the the love was a result of the rape. Sorry then, for the misunderstanding on my part.

      Of course sexual assault of any kind is completely despicable, and wether a victim has feelings of love for the perpetrator or not has nothing to do with the act. Is that even being questioned by anyone this day and age? But technically? That sounds so wrong to me, rape is rape and it doesn't get any better or less brutal or damaging by being preformed by your loved one, actually it most likely makes it way worse for most ppl. But then again, one has to separate reality from fiction. I can enjoy some rape-play in mangas, actually I love it. Usually not this more brutal kind, but the story is so good.
