During one of Tokyo's festivals, Kakei sends Kudo and Himura to recover an old vase in a nearby shrine. But the mission turns out to be much more difficult than it seems.

Kazahaya is quite the excitable little kitten, isn't he? Also, I love these eerie stories, based on Japanese folklore.

Kakei... You sneaky little bitch!
Don't act like I can't see what you're doing. You're playing a wee little game of Cupid, aren't you?
Do me a favor, will you?
... Put Kazahaya in that skirt again...

We start with the boys, Kazahaya and Rikuo, retrieving a cat made of tangible memory. As a reward for finding him and returning him to his owner, the cat shows them each a crystal-clear vision of the one they miss the most; Kazahaya his sister, Kei, and Ri

Kazahaya and Rikuo track down a vase that likes to play tricks on people, a cat that shows them the person they want to see most in the world, and Kazayaha steals a schoolgirl's uniform and wears it through a time slip into the past to complete a mission.

This book is more about the guys' pasts than anything. Rikuo misses a girl from his past named Tsukiko though Kazahaya hasn't found out much more than that. Thanks to his visions he knows what she looks like. As for himself, memories of his sist

2nd volume of this supernatural mystery series has more strange cases for the boys to solve. Firstly they have to find a spirit cat that shows a person what they most want to see, then a mysterious vase with the ability to distort space and time and finally they have to appease a restless ghost by replaying a highschool crush scene. Rikuo's fine, he gets to wear his old school uniform, but Kazahaya has to dress up as a girl and looks surprisingly good! - Will def appeal to fans of Eerie Queerie ...more

Another solid volume, with episodic requests for Kazahaya and Rikuo to face. The cases themselves are diverse and fun (and here we get the first must-have, in the same way most anime need a hot springs episode, manga of this sort always end up with the main character in girl's clothes against his will at some point.)

In this volume we also start to get a little more about these two characters' past - and about a pair of women who were very important in their lives. It's very clear why Rikuo's is

More is revealed about Rikuo and Kazahaya's pasts in volume 2, and it feels like the CLAMP ladies are taunting the audience - giving us just a taste of it, but leaving us wanting more because what we've seen only brushes the surface of the story.

Rikuo and Kazahaya's relationship also moves forward, and Rikuo's protectiveness of Kazahaya is cute. Kakei's showing himself to be quite a mystery, and one's left wondering exactly how much he knows.

This volume was a little better than the first. I think Kudo is a little less whiny and annoying. The stories were a little better. I think the cat one was the best, but still, this manga could be better, unless I'm judging it for being for high school readers. The art isn't even that great anymore, really.

I did not realize that the version I had combined all three volumes into one!
I enjoyed the book, however, I do with the relationship was developed more. I still do not understand what the drug was supposed to be, and wish that had been developed more.
Overall, I feel the story could go further than it did, but I loved what i did read!

I preferred this volume to the first. Kazahaya was less with the hating of Rikuo, although in this volume Rikuo deserved it more, as he was always making fun of Kazahaya!

I loved the cat story, being a cat lover myself, and the mysterious vase story was entertaining, plus the extra stories were fun. Onto the next volume :-)!

I really wish that Clamp would come off of hiatus for this series, they have a good plot going. They just need to finish it. I think that I didn't like it as I should have because it hasn't been finished and I don't know that there is a definite ending. I think that takes a little off the series.

More surreality, a deepening of the overarching plot. We learn more about Kazahaya's and Rikuo's haunted pasts. CLAMP continues to be CLAMP. The boys love overtones grow more present and delightful.

I think there was a cameo here but I missed the reference!

I hoped that in this volume it would become clearer as to why the title was the title and that there would be more connection to a 'drug.'

It may or may not be some symbolism I'm missing.

Aside from that I love the series and am devastated that there's only three books!

Pretty good. I love the paranormal fact in there. It makes it easier to read. I am reading on in the series.

Nice art by Clamp, though the stories were not very exciting or memorable (though, cute kitten in the first one, and some funny moments overall).

Is "Legal Drug" yaoi? I'm not entirely sure, but I love the dynamic between the two main characters and the complex relationships/pasts of everyone in the story. Very much looking forward to V3.

I'd forgotten that we get a glimpse of the Hinata and her Sensei from the Suki books! So cute, love how CLAMP connects their stories together.
