Shiraishi is a young diplomat for a Japan's embassy in Thailand. Here he has the change to work with Yoshinaga, a very young diplomat whose genius and political ability helped him to make a fast career. Yoshinaga is also Shiraishi's sister fiancee, even if the engagement is more a interest bargain than a matter of love.

When Shiraishi sees Yoshinaga in a night club kissing another man, he has puzzled feelings: he is angry for a man of Yoshinaga's level to be so open in public, but he is also worried for his family and sister. So he corners Yoshinaga and pretends some explanations to a scandalous behavior. Instead Yoshinaga justifies all his unethical moves due to the context and moreover, he kisses also Shiraishi and soon after they start an affair, putting also Shiraishi in an embarrassing position and bonding him to not reveal anything otherwise he will put at risk also his career.

Between Shiraishi and Yoshinaga there is a strange relationship: obviously they are very attracted from each other, but both Yoshinaga than Shiraishi seem not willing to give up their career for love; on the contrary Yoshinaga has no intention to break his engagement with Shiraishi's sister, and Shiraishi seems right with having an extra marital relationship with him, betraying not a mere other woman, but his own sister.

The story is pretty complex, the graphic detailed and rich; this is, according to the author, only a first volume of several others, even if the American publisher released it as a one stand volume.

Moriya works for an advertising agency and he is searching the perfect model for a perfume company. Told be truth, lately Moriya has lost interest in his work, and he is not only searching for a model, he is also searching for a purpose in his life. And when he sees Itsuki, he knows to have found both.

Itsuki is a spoilt young man, almost apathic. He does very little in his life, everything seems to tired him and he speaks even less. But he is perfectly beauty. He almost shines for how beauty he is. And Moriya decides that Itsuki will became his whole life: he will be Itsuki's slave, for all he wants. Itsuki is a strange character: he seems to not be affected by the people around him and to not care for nothing, but he sees everything and even if he doesn't speak, his presence is loud and strong. For how much Moriya works, it's Itsuki that shines in this novel.

But this leads Moriya to grew also a very possessive and protective attitude toward Itsuki, and with it will arrive also jealousy from co-worker and other peoplearound.

The story is good, and the graphic almost linear. Maybe I'd like a bit more of continuity, sometimes I had the feeling to lost track of the event.

There is also a little story inside, The Barbaric Prince, which is almost as interesting as the main story, but pity it's very short.

Tatsuya is a 26 yd wealthy business man with a purpose: he wants to find his lost stepbrother, Haru. Haru is the son of the second wife of his father, but since he was born, Tatsuya took care for him more like a son than a brother. But one day Haru and his mother disappeared and Tatsuya has never known what happened.

Now Haru, 17 yd, lives alone, the mother remarried more time and finally left him alone. He dropped school and lives jumping from a part time job to another. When he sees Tatsuya in a night club where he works, he immediately recognizes his brother but Tatsuya doesn't recognize him, having lied on his age to have the work and using the surname of his last stepfather.

Tatsuya is immediately draws by Haru and not in a brotherly way. Tatsuya seduces Haru and when the morning after he discovers the truth about their blood relationship, at first tries to keep at distance the boy, but then, when he sees in what poor condition he lives, he resolves to take Haru in with him, like a "brother", even if both believe the other doesn't know the truth.

When all the secrets are unveal, Tatsuya and Haru are convinced that they don't share a blood relationship, since Haru probably is not the true son of Tatsuya's father. But Tatsuya knows better, he knows that Haru shares with him a blood bond, but he can't resolve himself to let the boy go.

The drawning is beatiful, almost ethereal. And the story is pretty angst, not so lighthearted like other yaoi manga, but still is not too dramatic, and even if maybe you cringe a bit to the final decision of Tatsuya, you can also comprehend his resolution.
