I don't often hate a manga, but I hate this one. In the first place, neither of the stories is, in fact, a romance. The first story is kidnapping and abuse, but just using financial power to control and bully, so without any BDSM or dark fantasy titillation-- it's just vapid. The characters in this story are heartless and stupid. The second story is an unresolved love triangle. The plot is unnecessarily complex, and without significant emotional content. To me, this manga sucks.

I don't understand what in the first one why doesn't he contact the parents of that manipulative asshole to take care of him.
The second one was the only one that left me wanting for more. I feel like the salary man just chose the other one out of rebound or something. So I'd have liked an ending with the author and the designer.

    It kind of make me relieved that both stories don't have a real ending. Perhaps because I'm greedy. I don't want the uke to choose, I want him to have it all. Or maybe because I'm afraid of getting disappointed by his choice. I don't know. I only know that I feel relieved.

    Nothing was resolved in those stories. Absolutely nothing. And gouru from the first story, the uke best friend was the smartest one. Lol btw i think megumi is awesome! ╮( ̄▽ ̄)╭

    really disappointed with the ending or the "lack of it". I have no sympathy for the seme and the uke really pissed me off because of how dull he is. I feel sorry for his girlfriend

    I am so confused by the ambiguous endings! It really is not often that you get stories like these. Compared to the first story, the second was a little worse in that department though. That geoup of people has more than just a few relationship problems. I would have loved to actually get a full ending but it was an interesting read so I cannot complain too much. ╮( ̄▽ ̄)╭

    I don't get why so much hate. I think that people that say they hate Koide Mieko are the ones that don't know their yaoi. She has written some golden ones like Yatteraneese (adapted from novel but still great adaption), Binetsu no Karute, Kuchibiru ni Amai doku etc etc.
    She has a pretty overwhelming reputation and just because she experimented with something different than her usual plots you shouldn't just go and spout crap.

    That and sometimes I think that people here are people with no relationships with other human beings whatsoever. I found the execution pretty good on both plots, even if it wasn't my cup of tea. I don't get why people spout shit like this. If I really had to complain about something, it would be the endings on both (especially the second one, I mean wtf!) but you never know what happened and it turned out like this. In all honesty, I tried reading this because of the mangaka, since she's pretty good. And collaborates with other good mangaka as well.

    Oh well, idiots will remain idiots no matter what you say. ┑( ̄Д  ̄)┍

  14. kitteh August 11, 2014 4:33 am

    ok, only read this if you like dysfunctional relationships. i stopped after the first chapter 1.2. i don't buy fake love, and i hated the start of this. v_v

  15. VampireKnight June 18, 2014 5:19 pm

    Hate how the extra ended!!!! Who'd he have chosen?? The rich guy was treating Hata-chan like Shit!! Like why'd be have to go and hurt his girlfriend! His life was good and great before the rich student came!! Money doesn't mean u can have everything!!!

  16. WTF June 10, 2014 4:44 pm

    Absolute shit, only in yaoi dose a psychotic manipulator and emotional blackmail add up to love! The writing was dull the dialogue stilted and the protagonist were frankly useless. Note to author perhaps you should look at other career option!

    Let me explain this manga why left with no ending so people here won't be angry (and Author Please correct me if I am wrong); First Story left at the hospital with "I will Hatasu" means they won't live together in a house but he will visit him, relationship should be together in the end Because his friend tell his girlfriend with whom he staying at this period of time. As for Second story it is a cliff-hanger but I would like to explain this too (Author please correct me if I am wrong) Tittle is "Only You" so his heart whether Sei would return his love or not that's too is a choice but as long as he say out loud his love for Sei he is happy. To make everyone understand this manga this is base on my personal years of experience in reading mangas. Hope everyone will be happy with my explanation.

    was sad about the vague endings but it was like a real life story props to the mangaka for leading us own the rabbit hole of human relationships

  19. YAY! April 28, 2014 1:53 am

    Ugh. God, those endings were awful. I mean, does the straight guy from the first story break up with the girl and become the student's lover? Does Sei go for the one he's always loved our does he go for the one that's always loved him? Damn it!

    There are a lot of angry comments here, but personally I was satisfied with the endings of these stories. And as always, this author does an amazing job of showing real people. The first story aside, being as it's a normal enough case of Stockholm syndrome, the second story certainly does seem unfinished. If the goal was for everyone to fall in love, that is. Say for example, though, that the goal was for everyone to confess their feelings. Then wouldn't this story have succeeded in that, and would thus be considered complete? I think people need to calm down. If you like a story, great, if you don't-don't read it again. Okay? And for those of you knocking this artist--she has some amazing other works. To not read some of her other things because you dislike the flow of this particular series of stories is frankly, in my opinion, extremely childish. Read some of her other amazing stories before you damn her to hell for writing a story you didn't like. Seriously, now.

      Theres nothing real about these characters or their reactions, stolkholm syndrome dose not turn victims of kidnap into your friend it means they come to see their captures as human. Also this was a stalker turned domestic abuse. There is nothing romantic about that.

Which is why I prefer Yaoi :D. I used to be so obsessed with shoujo mangas but yaoi to me ...
Am I the only one?
OR, there's the other common thing in Yaoi; Sex (Rape) > Confession > Dating
