    Ok i don't understand how Souma's mind worked. First, when Masataka refused his advance he forced himself on him again and again without letting go, but when Masataka consensually accepted his feeling he hastely chased him away. Man! I just don't get it.

      He didn't, it's in the first or second page of the author's note at the end. The mangaka couldn't decide whether to kill him or keep him alive, so she just left it at that scene.

    I'm a pussy, so I shall bow out of this one. The comments have scared me away and I thank y'all for the warning. After Boy's Love, I'm not ready for such another emotional scar.

    Omg I have never cry so hard reading a manga before.... this is so a sad emotional deep hurtful manga. Cyr a bucket.

    This was so hard to read. The mangaka wrote one hell off a masterpiece, but it put me in a very bad place. Im actually most upset with the ending, and not because it sucked or I thought it should be different. It was because he lost everything in the end, despite wanting to be saved for so long.

    This story seems more realistic than most manga, it's like frpm a movie. Very sad and disturbing. In the end, it's like 'You reap what you sow' for Souma, dying for his sins.
    I wish Souma lived but I guess there's just too much heartbreak in his life for him to move on. At least, he found love for once in his life.
    An exceptional manga.

    i should have never read this manga all i am doing is crying right now its too emotional its not good for my heart why did souma have to die

    Wow... cannot express in words how emotional I feel now that I have read this whole thing... HEAVY RAPE, HEAVY ABUSE, HEAVY PSYCHOLOGICAL FUCKED-UPPED-NESS!... But... in the strangest way... romantic... sweet, caring, and amazing that they somehow managed to express their feelings for each other, despite having grown up in such fucked up family situations and turning out like they did... despite all the MURDER, RAPE, and PHYSICAL ABUSE... IT'S A DAMN GOOD STORY! Just be prepared for emotions beyond words, and have like three boxes of tissues on standby for this tear-jerker...

    Beware... this mang gonna make you cry like a little bitch!
    Such a masterpiece, one of the most deep and good manga's i've ever read (not only yaoi).

    Plot twist.. So many plot twist and tragedies! Ugh, somebody hold me! D: lol but I really did enjoy this manga. I definitely reccomend this for everyone to read. And I agree with most comments that say that it was a happy ending. It couldn't have gotten any happier with the mood and all( and tragedies... Oh the tragedies lol) but don't let most of these comments deter you. It's a heavy read but if you enjoy such a thing and mystery then you will love it! :)

    It's a very interesting yaoi manga, one of the many that will be inked into my memories. Although I did not enjoy many sex scenes that souma have with other people, I gotta say, this manga is one of those yaoi manga where there's a deep stories behind it-which is very rare for yaoi manga-and im glad I read it because hell, sometimes I just need to refresh my brain once in a while

  16. scarlet July 22, 2014 12:20 pm

    i lost count how many time i have read this but i dont understand souma live or die aghhhhhhhhhhhh

    • anymous July 22, 2014 12:36 pm

      it because this manga is an open ending. So it depends on your imagination

  17. looood July 8, 2014 11:32 pm

    it was a good read, i thought souma would die in the end but im glad he didnt.
    In my opinion this wasnt a sad manga at all. But i wish the art was a little better.

    It's an ending that beautifull as long as you stand open for it. It is your choice how to imply it. I hear a lot of sadnees but I dont think its a sad ending. So when you read just never think of the worst but open yourself to the fact that a future always holds possibilities!

      What's a nice comment!
      Normally I try to avoid tragedy story, but I do like this manga, it's wonderful.

    Beautiful manga! Spoiler!!!
    Even though It is implied that Souma has died. To help my heart from hurting :-[ I like to think got helped and lived. Years pass and they finally meet on great standings.
