THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS.
Since I'm only on the third volume of this manga, I can't give a full and geniune opinion on the plot. However, I will share how I feel about this manga as far as I've read it. Now, let me come right out and say this one thing before I get started; I don't mind incest. Sure, a whole lot of people would find this statement rather controversial, but I don't care. This is a fact, but I'm not scared to come out and say it. So, this story doesn't perturb me that much. Anyways, moving on. There were some things I enjoyed about this manga; some things that actually did make sense. After Aki and Sora (yes, they are siblings) confess their love, the whole 'oh-no-what-if-someone-finds-out' behavior from Sora makes sense. As for Aki's reaction to the relationship, she's more like 'why-can't-we-love-I-don't-see-anything-wrong-with-it'... it doesn't quite make sense. While I am somwhat okay with the fact that she doesn't care about what others think, I'm pretty surprised that she can go around and partake in sexual activities while their parents and Nami are around. I mean, seriously? Does she have a death wish or something? If your parents find out, they'll fucking kill you. You two won't be able to see each other, and the rumors can easily be spread around. For those of you who may not be aware of what I'm talking about, let me clarify what I mean. In Japan, houses are often very cloes to each other due to the lack of space in Japan. My 7th grade teacher went on a trip to Japan and she explained what it was like there. Because they live in such close spaces, I wouldn't be surprised if rumors spread easily, and if everyone knows everything there is to know about their neighbors or friends. Anyways, back to the plot. I can't help but feel as if Aki and Sora's relationship was all rushed. I mean, juding by Sora's thoughts, the two haven't taken a bath together since they were really little. So all of a sudden, Aki just says that she wants to take a bath with him and then decides to touch his crotch. He continually says stop, but she just keeps doing it. It's like, "Whoa! What just happened? Why i-is Aki touching S-Sora all of a sudden?" This may give off different reactions from people to people, but I personally like anime where romance develops. I don't enjoy it when the smut/ecchi parts just randomly show up. It's annoying to me, and it shows that Aki just wants to fondle her little bro without even knowing whether or not he likes her. Sure, he blushed and acted nervous, but assuming she knew her brother well, that he is a shy person, she should know better than to just act on her own accord. Plus, right before they both, ahem, fucked one another, they confessed. While it makes sense, shouldn't they both date each other first or something? And more importantly, wear a fucking condom! Especially since the two of you are fucking one another for almost every single day! If I didn't know any better, and I probably don't, I'd say that the two of them have sex almost every single day. Do you fucking realize that Aki could get pregnant? Then how do you explain that to your parents? Ahem, moving on. Some things didn't even make any fucking sense. For example, in Chapter 12 (Volume 3), Sora gets to stick his dick inside of Alice, and Miharu just forces her to do it. Seriously. What the fuck? Even if you have E.D., you still don't let another guy, even if he's your best friend, to stick his shaft inside of your girlfriend's crotch. If I were Alice, I'd dumped the guy and find someone else. I'd love to get into detail about the whole thing, but I'm not gonna waste my time and energy doing it, so let me just give my overall opinion on the manga.
I dislike it. Mainly because the manga seems to have almost no other thing going on other than sex. There is little to no development of romance, and almost nothing else about it that makes me want to stick to it, other than the fact that I want to know what happens in the end. It's annoying. I'm sorry, but it really is. This is almost as bad as reading a PWP. I've read better yuri/yaoi/heterosexual/incestuous manga than this.
Not much character development from most of the characters.
I feel like some of her actions make sense, and I do admire for being all 'I-don't-care-what-anyone-thinks', but I think she seriously needs to learn to control herself. Most people don't fuck someone in front of other people... whether or not they are asleep or awake. Also, because she's considered his girlfriend, shouldn't she know at least some of the activities that her boyfriend/brother has been up to?
I'm sorry, I gotta get this off of my chest. I'm really sorry if this offends anyone. Sora, I think you're a fucking, cheap bimbo. Seriously, I can handle anime guys who are wimpy or weak, but I can't stand this guy. He's just so... urgh! $*%! You don't fuck just anyone who forces you, baka! How can you fuck someone's girlfriend? Especially since it's your best friend's girlfriend. Even though, yes, your friend gave you permission, you should know better, because you already have Aki. And when Kana decided to give you a boobjob, you definitely don't just shut the fuck up and let her do it. Again, you have a fucking girlfriend, you douchebag. Also, why are you letting Satsuki have her way with you? You have a girlfriend, and I can't believe you actually accept her fucking around with you. You are such a lewd, senseless, and fucked-up person. Good girls like Kana don't deserve to love you. I bet I can even wave a whole bunch of prostitutes around and you'd probably fall on your knees and have them fuck their way with you. Guys like you really piss me off, and I'd rather go gay for a girl than date someone like you.
Some people might actually disagree with me, but I honestly don't think Nami's a really bad person. Her whole 'going-berserk' action did make sense. Some people can't control themselves when they're in love. I should know, since I can (slightly) relate to her situation. I felt like the whole rape thing was bad and didn't really make much sense. Why she'd rape Sora after Sora just had sex with Kana just so she could 'recieve' Kana's scent.. seems too bizarre. Also, I do admire her, because she tries to get Sora and Kana to hook up, even though she loves Kana. Judging by her personality, you'd also kind of expect for her to stop Kana from liking Sora, but it seems that it isn't the case. Her actions shows that she isn't unconscious of Kana's feelings for Sora. Of course, I just didn't like the way she handled the situation and raped her brother/nearly cut off her brother's dick. Plus, I don't like her brash personality; jumping into situations without actually considering her other options. If she had actually considered her other options, such as finally confessing to Kana, then maybe things wouldn't have turned out so bad. Nami is the only character that I felt really had any character development at all. In the beginning, she tends to have a stubborn, bold, reckless 'I-don't-give-a-shit' attitude, but around the time when Kana gives Sora a boobjob, Nami's character seems to have altered. She starts showing a more emotional and conflicted side to herself.
Too tired to find out her whole name. Sorry again for my rant. I fucking despise her. Aside from her hobby, I utterly dislike the way she just forces Sora to do anything she wants him to do. Also, I dislike the way she can just easily go to a party and fuck with an anonymous guy and lose her virginity. It makes her seem like a fucking slut. She doesn't even question whether or not he has a girlfriend and just has her way without him. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that she doesn't care whether or not he has a girlfriend.
Overall, I didn't like the potrayment of the characters. Some of them seem too bitchy, too slutty, or something else. Plus, most of the girls seem too eager to throw themselves onto Sora without thinking 'what if', so that makes me feel as if they're really mindless. As for Sora... he so needs to learn to stick to one girl and say no to the others. I can't find one character that I actually like and thinks about something than sex. Then again, what should I have expected from a harem? This is a great manga if you love smut in almost or every single chapter... not so much if you love other, more important things. So... my score's going to stay the same for now. I'm going to continue reading this and possibly update my review when I'm finished.
Ok well, I actually liked some of this series...And then there was part where I was like O__O WHAT THE?!! <__< It gets a bit...overboard with the sex...
Not going to spoil anything.
Basically if you like ecchi, smut, and just you know - anything to do with that - then this manga is for you. Three cheers for incest! ...<__<
I can say, the ending was OK...And the "shocking secrets" (I think there were only 2) were pretty obvious.
It's not quite hentai I guess, since they really don't show........but the sex scenes are...well there's a lot of them...I don't know how I managed to finish this series. :P
I just don't know how to describe this, especially without spoiling anything. Sorry :\
Where to start....
It's kind of hard to come up with the right things to say, because I did enjoy reading most of it, but there are also quite a lot of things lacking in the story and the characters.
Also, I should warn you about chapter 6. I thought that was the most disturbing one for several reasons that I cannot express without spoilers, so I shall refrain to do so, but I must warn you that even for adult content mixed with drama, this one really gets the gears in your head cracking.
I thought that it was also rather amusing how, despite it being pretty explicit they still kept on going about his 'thing' being hot and what not... That thing has a name and you know it!
But anyway, never mind that. The most troublesome is still the lack of common sense. When you are trying to mix in feelings and psychological stuff, then surely you should understand the objections of incestuous relationships and not be like 'Huh, problem? What problem?'.
I can not believe, no matter how much you love a person, you can not for even a single moment have certain doubts about... Whatever situation might be at hand, especially when it is a moral issue.
The characters, interesting as they all are, are just too... How to put it...
Despite their clear personalities, they lack a certain depth, again also involving some common sense. Some aspects are covered when it comes to thinking about consequences, but then other things are just ignored.
Best example yet might simply be the use of condoms. Hello? Pregnancy? STD's?
And then there's the last few chapters. Could they possibly make all the previous events that already lacked credibility pale in comparison to anything else? Why yes, I think we can make you go like 'OMGWTF Scuzzlebutt!'
So then why did I still enjoy it? I can't even come up with the reason myself at this moment. Isn't that funny? No actually, but whatever. It's not like this is something to read just for the sex, because then you should get a proper hentai... Ehm... What's a porn manga called?
You know what, if you're open minded in the erotic department and enjoy reading an adult story WITHOUT too much logic and don't mind the main character to be a ginormous push-over pussy who for that exact same reason AND the fact that he looks like a girl, which in this case seems to work in his favor because these girls seem to love girly boys... Then you should just go ahead and read the manga and judge for yourself.
Oh, you might want to also keep in mind that most guys are not capable to do it 10 times in a row, so for the girls, don't get your hope up and for the guys, don't feel... What's the word?
Like an underachiever or something.
It's just physically impossible. Sorry. =P Us men need to pause a bit (at least 5 minutes) in between or it will start to hurt, okay? Ah heck, it's not like all women can go on forever either.
But that's yet another story so, before I sink into another ADD agitated rant, I shall now cut this short and tell all the perverts to go read this and all the prudes... Why in the hell did you even read this review?!
The entire series was finally released on manga fox so i could finally complete it. It is actually a very touching story even though they are blood related they can have a truer form of love that can even transend forbidden lines. I have read it all and watched it all and if your looking for a romance story and can have a broader form of thought not to judge it because of its theme then you will most likely be very happy with this title.
this series is a little twisted, but the real story lies deep underneath the surface. Reading this requires a mature, inteligent person. not for those that still laugh at the word booger. it has an amazizing main story, but one of the side stories is lewd and disgusting, no matter how you look at it. i found myself wishing the main char had more integrity, but he probabaly wouldnt be in his situations at all if that were the case. the story always keeps heating up as it goes though, and if you want to read somthing thats as origional as ive seen, then this is for you.
