I my review of Fake, Vol 2 I wrote that the quirky, comical, sexually charged and energetic camp allure of the series was working, but would soon turn old if Sanami Matoh wouldn't offer us something novel or more substantial.

After reading the third volume I can repeat this sentiment, this time even more forcefully. Surprisingly, the pace of the storytelling and the tongue-in-cheek writing were still so very well executed that they carried through one more volume. But it’s obvious that the themes
I picked up the first 7 volumes of this Manga at a used book sale.It follows two New York cops who just might be attracted to each other. Oh, they're both guys. The stories are good,and the various side characters are interesting. I probably wouldn't have tried this series if I had to pay full pice, but I'm glad I did.I really love Manga as it provides so many types of stories, not just a million different super heroes. Three cheers and a 21 gun salute to the Japanese and their contributions to ...more

[2007-05-13] 3rd of a seven part manga about two New York cops. On l_prieto's recommendation I picked up the volumes that were in stock in Bookbuyers, which happened to be 3,5 and 6, so I'm starting part way in. Interesting story so long as you don't demand realism, great semi-UST (semi, because there's some fairly intense kissing). I found it hard to keep track of what was going on at times, although I think that's largely down to coming in part-way through. The art shows them as adult men rath ...more

In the first story, we get introduced to Diana Spacey, an agent with the FBI and long term friend of Commissioner Berkeley Rose. She is in love with him, but he only has eyes for Ryo, much to Dee's chagrin. Dee has his own problems in the unwanted attention from J.J. and Bikky doing his best to keep him away from Ryo. In the meantime, Diana ends up being offered up to the killer, but manages to hold her own till the motley crew of Berkeley, Dee, Bikky and Ryo, can figure out what has happened to ...more

Recommends it for: no one
I gave this series three volumes to improve and it only got worse. I have trouble seeing how I found any enjoyment from it. Its not sexy, its not funny and its not interesting. What it is, is annoying, frustrating and boring. I'm not into having MORE terrible secondary characters who repeat Matoh's theme of being physically/verbally abusive and sexually aggressive (in a non-consensual way) in order to get a laugh (isn't working).

The plot is still terrible, the pacing is a mess...I really can't

3rd in the 7 book series. Introduces F.B.I agent Diana Spacey. 1st story has Berkley Rose splitting up Dee and Ryo onto different cases so that he can hit on Ryo! Our boys find out that they are in fact working on the same case from different angles. We get a cute Christmas eve story - Ryo is left all alone on the anniversary of his parents death until Dee comes over and makes everything OK. Lastly we get another Bikky/Carol story introducing their rival/friends Lai and Lass. Another great volum ...more
Another in the wonderful "Fake" series, the third volume sees Ryo finally begin to accept his feelings, but worry not! There is still plenty to come in this manga. I've loved these books since I first picked them up, and have never found another manga quite as good. I love the slow build up and tension, and the misunderstandings and awkward circumstances. Look out for my reviews of the rest of the series, another five star book!
Bark's Book Nonsense
Another great entry in the "Fake" series. Again, Dee's plans to seduce his partner Ryo are interrupted by sleep, kids or police work. This entry takes a look at Ryo's past and explains why he is so alone.
Loved this series. It was the first manga I had ever read. Once of my favorites.
More plot! I loved it. The introduction of Lai in Bikky's story is fun, too.
Cute! I like the introduction of Spacey, and the kiss at the end.
Fake Vol. 3 by Sanami Matoh (2003)
Excellent. I love it.
