Shiro, a laid-back and absentmindedly seductive umbrella craftsman, is (surprisingly) a close friend of Koujirou, a hot-blooded young police officer who stands against all things undisciplined. With their mutual knack for attracting trouble, the pair soon find themselves involved in a bloody and erotic thrill-ride in their off-kilter town full of equally off-kilter people.
The first thing you notice about Adekan is the mangaka's attention to detail. The art is stunning throughout with no detail missed. The stor is engaging in that there are many mysteries surrounding one of the protagonists. Hint at boy's love but more in a teasing way, as both male protagonists are clearly interested in women. The story tends to get a little bit repetitive as the manga seems to follow the pattern of side story after side story. But at the same time the main plot is returned to which helps readers maintain interest- a manga of only side stories and no real plot development would be boring! If you're a yaoi fan, then you may enjoy this if you like analyzing relationships since it can certainly be interpreted as such. If not then its not so in-your-face that it detracts from the story if you're not into that. Mostly I kept up with it for the GORGEOUS art and emphasis on GORGEOUS because the art is truly stunning and one of the main reasons I continue to read the manga during slower parts. Overall a 8.5 since the story tends to slow down at parts
