Not what I expected AT.All. The only character I liked was King, Ace drove me nuts, ick. I was expecting another route for this story, namely King and J's relationship raising a human child. If this had been focused on J and King's relationship, I would have loved it. sigh.
This is the story of two vampires and their human ward. King turned J and they've spent their time together as father and son, brothers and lovers. However, J has issues with being a vampire and acts out many times. King takes in a human child, Ace, when his parents are killed in the hopes that having someone to take care of, to be responsible for, will help J from his dark mood swings and listless behavior.

However, King has brought into their family someone who not only changes J's behavior but

It was my favorite manga once. I re-read it and gave it solid 3 stars. Two gay vampires and one human child, which was taken in because of guilt, were forming a relationship for sake of the plot.

This is one weird yaoi manga. I have to admit that the basic premise weirds me out a lot - two vampires 'raising' a young human boy, who ends up being totally obsessed with his desire for one of them.

This volume also jumps around a ton and half is bonus material that takes place before and during the events of this volume. The jumping back and forth really broke whatever pace there was and ended up just confusing me mostly.

I am intrigued though. I may just track down the second volume to see wha

Yaoi manga with can see why I picked up this title the other day.
It's a good start to something and I know I will get volume 2 very soon. The drawing style started off a bit shaky, but I found I really liked it by the end. And there is an interesting dynamic between the three main characters.

I was disappointed in this book, I had heard it was really good, but I thought it was a little wanting in plot and the sex was kinda lame. I've really liked her other work so I think that made it more of a let down.
