: Oh? So akira and kaoru never had that kind of relationship? Thank goodness!:))) Its sweet. :) kaoruxyoshiyuki I feel yoshiyuki really, whenever i tutor someone and he/she doesnt get it though he/she should already get it in his/her level, that's my POV! (unconsciously holding a kendo sword, though not literally hahahaha!) Well its also ok coz thats why they need a tutor in the first place :)
: Finally! We're getting somewhere again - the story is back on the move!
: I like both those sides of Aki. I don't see him as either/or. I do think he is often in over his head and sometimes has to tread water or go with the current. He is sometimes the victim of his choices, sometimes the victim of those who are more powerful, but generally not passive. I do love his heart but far from making me pity him, I think his heart--his empathy, his kindness--gives him the inner strength to fight when the odds are so stacked against him. Cheeky, badass Aki and sweet, caring Aki don't exist separately to me. They are essential parts of a whole. (Along with surprisingly kinky Aki.)
It's not the needing-to-be-rescued that makes him human and relatable to me. Again, it's a jumble of things. That heart, the mistakes, the awkwardness, his resilience all make him relatable and human.
That resilience makes him rootable. He has weathered the storm of Asami and his world over and over and keeps coming back, keeps fighting back. Even when everyone else has assault rifles and all he has is a frying pan, he's right there.
He's cheeky, reckless, kind, harebrained, sweet, hot tempered, empathetic, foolhardy, sexy, infuriating, caring, etc. etc. I like all of that about him.
: I liked how it ended with a true threesome; a poly relationship that will work since they all have their needs satisfied.
: This is kool, it's my first time reading a manga where the 3rd main character became the 2nd main character xD and it was really sweet including all the dramas. There's so much feelings involved.
: Finished to fast should have been more the friends were wrong and the manager and them are bastrads for doing thAt to him ..was a good read just missing something
: I think it was erza twin sister. Like yukino and angel they are long lost sister who meet in a long time. So I think it was erza twin.... I hope so
: Totally agree. I sometimes find myself skipping through it on my first read through but always end up really-reading the chapter and realize I actually missed important details from skipping dialog. I have also been buying the volumes on Amazon and the official English translation flows a lot better.
: Are you trying to put logic on yaoi?
: sebenarnya kasusnya gak terlalu rumit seperti di Conan, hanya saja di Indonesia gak ada 911 kayak di US, coba pas collapse langsung panggil 911, trus dilihat ada gejala keracunan pasti polisi langsung datang ke TKP, tentunya barang buktinya bisa diamankan, akan akurat dan gak bisa dibantah. Anehnya kok dokter yg pertama kali periksa gak kepikiran kalau Mirna keracunan sianida dan kenapa udah 3 hari baru diperiksa cairan lambungnya dan malah ada dokter saksi ahli yg bilang kalau Mirna gak mungkin keracunan sianida karena gejala keracunan itu harusnya disertai dg muntah LOL. Kalau baca dari Conan selama ini gejala keracunan sianida itu khas seperti almond breath dan red cherry, kayaknya gak usah di masukkan kedalam kopi, sianida di oles di bibir cangkir trus kita minum udah langsung death seketika. dari kasus ini bisa dilihat betapa lambannya penanganan kasus dinegeri kita. atau aparat kita emang kurang kompeten.
: He hasn't though. He has not received any knowledge or illegal activities and it's not even his department that investigates those things. The rules for fraternizing with criminals are different depending on where you live. Now if he walked in on his lover dealing drugs or killing someone then he would definitely have to report it. They don't discuss the details of either of their jobs with each other that is made clear several times.
: I like the third story the most! Nice! :)
: I guess there's just miscommunication happening here, we seemingly don't even argue about the same thing. Anoni Grrl and you were seemingly arguing about the merits of such fictional relationships in a story while others were arguing about whether nor there was abuse lol.
Is there abuse? Certainly, and it would be disturbing if people totally denied it. Is it so much there that the relationship is totally abusive? It's debatable depending on each others' own definition of an abusive relationship, and I wouldn't exactly say so myself, though the level of it certainly varies through the story.
Is the ravishment trope fine and enjoyable in fiction? Yes, very much, that is why it sells so much.
: I'm nearly certain that's just art by Ayumi Kasai, sorry
: The last 10 chapters or so frustrates the hell out of me. I always start with the right attitude, trying to put aside the dissapointment of the last episode but it just doesn't get better. I don't read a lot of shoujo because they can be really slow and I was so happy that even when there were some filling chapters it was entretaining. I never thought it would get boring. I'm totally depressed and pissed at the same time. ╥﹏╥ (๑•ㅂ•)و✧
: I like the proactive Takaba. he has been jumping in feet first from the start. every now and then I would like him to stop and think things through, have a back up plan. At least get out of the way, don't throw yourself in front of the kidnappers. Jumping off of buildings w/o a rope is not a good escape plan. To me Takaba creates some of the storms but he takes responsibility for his actions example when his friends where taken by Fei, he tries to find a way to save them.
