The sexually masochistic yakuza boss, Yashiro, isn't the type to warm up to others easily. But when Chikara Doumeki, his newly hired bodyguard, catches his interest, he reconsiders his "hands-off" policy with subordinates. As Yashiro's invitations fail, the yakuza boss finds out his bodyguard has a very personal reason for staying at arm's length.
I have been a follower of the manga for quite a while now, and I must say this movie exceeded my expectations for the film. The film stays very true to the tone and intensity of the source material. I expected the sexual content to be heavily edited but was pleasantly surprised how the scenes weren't watered down. While there are no genitals shown in the film basically everything else is. The animation is beautiful. The coloring and the art style really brought the original art to a whole new level. The soundtrack compliments the tone of the film so well, using jazz as the genre was perfect. This movie is set to be the first of a three-part trilogy, so the movie's ending leaves you wanting more, but it does end at a good stopping point in the overall story. Please be aware if you are not familiar with the source material that this is a dark, explicit, and mature themed film. There are depictions of child sexual abuse in the movie, the scenes are short but are present in the film twice. This film makes me excited not only for the rest of the trilogy but other projects that Blue Lynx will produce because the film quality was so high.
Absolutely beautiful! ♡ I've been following this BL for like 6 years now, so, i can proudly say it's pretty well adapted to the point of being a great surprise! (I was really worried of getting a bad quality movie since this BL is such a staple story for me). I can't think of any seiyuus more qualified for this job, every one fits perfectly with the character. The background music was fitting as well and the ending song made me cry like a little b?tch! ♡ I wholeheartedly encourage you to start the manga from the beginning so you can enjoy every little detail that couldn't get into the movie!. So, overall a pretty solid movie, i'm so excited for the second part! ♡
I always used to love wondering when I would be able to watch this anime, because of being underage for yaoi. But now I finally got my hands on it. I loved it. A lot. Countless words might still not be enough for it, but yeah, this is how much I loved it. Even though what I expected of it (seeing the cover) I didn't actually get my expectations fulfilled but I'm really glad to have watched this masterpiece. My expectations for Yashiro also didn't get fulfilled, but the character devopment was sad and pitiful, plus painful, in opposite to what I had thought of him; cool, determined, a real Yakuza thinker. But in reality, I was quite surprised to see that he was obsessed with gay sex and stuff like that... But everything got covered up by his painful tragic past. Alright, so all the character developments were alright, I guess? I won't say excellent, but have never expected of this anime to be really a piece of beautifully made tragedy. Okay, I might as well accept that I'm still underage, so I found it quite.... Disgusting, watching Yashiro sucking up. Anyways, my final point will be that this movie was amazing, brilliant, and error-free. No missing parts, tattered story, but just mature parts and a big, sad, and shocking cliffhanger. Just to mention: this anime has got a lot of GREAT lessons! The heavily implied person should be: Yashiro. Now, now, people who are truly yaoi fans (not talking about SHOUNEN-AI) would be really glad and learn lots of lessons from this anime. It's great, and has uncountable words of appreciation from all it's fans. Who have not watched it yet, I heavily recommend to do so right away! You CAN'T waste such a great- excellent chance about this wonderful star. :)
