Yaoi classic! This manga is definitely not everybody's cup of tea. The drawings look more like fashion sketches and the characters are very dark, hurting on the inside and hurting others too. But the love story between Koji Nanjo and Takuto Izumi is epic among yaoi manga fans, that can't anybody deny.

Also, this edition contains a sneak peek into the history of Shounen-Ai, who were its pioneers and where and when it originated. Quite fascinating.

What Zetsuai is, for me: a really interesting story about love, and what it makes you do. In that sense, it is a love story, I suppose, but usually the term "love story" has a more positive connotation. And while there may well be people who find aspects of this particular love story admirable, I can't say I'm one of those.

This was interesting to read because apparently it was the first shonen ai manga published in Germany (or at least the first published by Carlsen). I have to say that it may

[Reseña Global 5/5]

Zetsuai 1989 es un manga con un principio aceptable pero que acaba yendo de mal en peor. Se vuelve repetitivo y los tomos finales son una sucesión de situaciones que hacen que te duela la cabeza de tanto poner los ojos en blanco. Sé que solo es ficción pero a mí ese tipo de "giros argumentales" no me gustan, ¿qué queréis que os diga?

Supongo que si os gusta el yaoi de este estilo, como sacado de una telenovela, os puede llegar a convencer... aunque tenéis sólo curiosidad, yo os
This volume is mostly an introduction into their lives and personalities. Don't expect them to be madly in love with each other at first sight. Although, with Kôji this is exactly the case. But, I've found them appealing and conflicting; you can see that their love story won't be easy, wich, for me, is a good thing. I don't like it easy. As long as they have their HEA I can bear some drama.

I'm reading volume 2 and liking it so far. So I just say: give it a try. Appearences can be deceptive.

Je retombe dans du yaoi avec un grand classique des années 90. Le choc des dessins à peine finis et des mentons sans fin ! Le postulat de départ est marrant car il se méprend sur l'identité de la jeune fille qu'il avait vue étant jeune et de découvrir que c'est un homme va totalement le déstabiliser car il éprouve tout de même une attirance très forte pour lui.
Ce jeu de perturber une star de showbiz qui est complètement déconnectée de ses sentiments est un classique du genre qui reste sympathiqu
