At first I was confused with this one because I thought it was supposed to be about the couple from Love Mode Vol. 1 but then I realized it was about a side character from that book and I absolutely loved it. It was very sweet and I fell in love with both characters right from the start. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

This volume tells the story of Naoya and Reiji. Naoya is a teenager lost his entire family in a car accident. He was unwanted by his foster parents and decided to support himself, but life is tough as he struggles to keep his scholarship at the private school he attends while working multiple jobs. Reiji is a wealthy man in his thirties who owns the male-for-male escort service that forms the backbone of the series. Reiji is indirectly responsible for Naoya being injured and Naoya ends up stayin ...more

I read this when it first was released in the US many years ago, and despite loving it, I was only ever able to get the first three volumes. Now I have them all, and I'm currently bed-ridden and I decided to read through them all - rather than do schoolwork.

This second volume of Love Mode is just as good as the first. This time it's Reiji's turn to find someone. I like Naoya and I feel bad for what he went through as a kid, especially seeing his brother killed so violently in the accident. What

My favorite pairing from the series. About Aoe Reiji, Takamiya's (of volume 1) friend and an owner of the biggest gay clubs bussiness in town. After an incident with his ex-girlfriend who left a school boy getting injured, Aoe took the boy in. Not to mention, said boy actually got quite a dark past. And well, you know where to start from there.

Naoya is my favorite character. His strong-willed and stern type is never been used as an uke type in yaoi mangas. So his character is so refreshing and o
Naoya is having a rough day, kicked out of school, no place to live and no money. Reiji finds his girlfriend cheating on him. They bump into each other outside a hotel. Reiji follows Naoya and sees that Naoya has no place to sleep, so he offers him the use of his couch. I like Reiji, he is kind but gruff and doesn't expect anything from Naoya. Naoya is slowly falling for Reiji but is expecting the worse because that's his life. Nothing explicit, just a single kiss. Really sweet story.

When I first read this book, I remember being disappointed that it didn't follow the same couple from the first volume. Although they do get a sexy bonus section at the end!

This book follows Aoe, the owner of the B&B who we met in the last volume. He meets Naoya after his ex girlfriend throws a plant pot at his head which misses and knocks Naoya out instead. After taking Naoya to the hospital, he learns that Naoya has no where to go and invites him to stay at his place.

Both of them struggle

I love this manga! It gets better with every chapter you read. I love the second story, it's more dramatic and intense.The characters evolve completely, it's amazing how one person can change your life completely, (fiction) but still, in terms of the story, it's a great read, i cried a couple of times in some scenes, laughed in others, but overall a must read even if you're not into this type of manga, the story holds itself strong.

Meine Meinung:
Band 1 hat mir ja schon gut gefallen und daher hatte ich mir einige Folgebände von dieser Reihe gekauft. Auch dieser zweite Band hat mir wieder gut gefallen. Der Humor ist nicht ganz so meins und wirkt auf mich eher albern, aber diese Stellen sind nur wenig im Manga verstreut. In der ersten Geschichte dieses Bandes (Christmas Children) kamen sogar keine dieser Szenen vor, aber in der zweiten Geschichte (Another Christmas Children) dafür wieder um so mehr.

I picked up the book for free with a bunch of others, didn't realize what it was till I got into it. One of the more unique books you will encounter, not mainstream here in North America. While it is not the type of book I typically read, I enjoyed being exposed to something that was totally new to me.

MUCH better than the first volume. Reiji and Naoya are my favorite couple in the series and I love that their relationship is evolving slowly.

Also: Kiichi is the best. :)
