Shin is a brand-new actor unfairly typecast as the villain, and Shige, his secret lover since college, is a rising star often cast as the heartthrob good guy. With Shige’s popularity on the rise and Shin’s awkward personality making him resemble the villains he plays, the two can’t risk being seen together for fear of tainting Shige’s image. And to complicate matters further, their relationship has lacked physical intimacy since their disastrous first time together. Every good role needs its conflict, but will this couple call it a wrap when an antagonist enters the scene?
Even though I have only completed one (1) chapter, I had to drop this one! Firstly, what passes as the "story", is all over the place! Within the span of a single chapter, we get a convoluted juxtaposition of contemporary character introductions and flimsy back stories/background information all combined with a rollercoaster of emotions! The "dialogue" is VERY weak, though this could very well be due to translation issues. The art is very scant and meager with a distinctly "sketchy" and "unfinished" appearance. And, the two main characters are essentially just underdeveloped and stunted cardboard cutouts of literary stereotypes (i.e. the popular, well liked and privileged personality and the misunderstood loner) and are completely forgettable. Depending on a manga's run, I usually try to read five (5) to ten (10) chapters before passing a definitive judgement however, I honestly could not do that with this particular title! I truly love yaoi, bara, BL and romance mangas but Black or White (Sachimo) is just a MESS!!! I advise you to skip this train wreck and read a more captivating manga like Here U Are which handles the topics of popularity, prejudgement and marginalization with much more sensitivity and success.
