Ahhh, where to start? This was an all round achiever in the Yaoi genre, art, plot, characters, smex… seriously, my only disappointment was that a side pair i had shipped together never hooked up. But, by the insinuations made by the author, they will. I AM DETERMINED THEY WILL.
As a personal preference, i like historical, or fantasy or foreign setting over a general school or work one, and this yaoi had a cute little back story and links that made its location relevant. A relevant as you can link an imaginary European kingdom and middle east tribes people who both accept homosexuality in the nineteenth-ish century. Luckily I don’t get hung up over accuracy and reality, so I had no drawbacks for this manga in terms of setting.
Ahh, and the bishounen! I prefer the manly cool seme, and yes, this one had a good ‘un. Again, luckily i don’t fret over the obscenely unrealistic muscle tonage on that guy, since he sure was nice to look at. The relationship between the uke (who thankfully was not ridiculously girly) and sheikh-like seme was cute, mutual and developed nicely.
Seriously, ticked all my boxes and left me with a satisfied feel after reading it.
5/5, rounded and colourful (not literally, its still as black and white as any other yaoi) , a really pleasant and well recommended read!
