A fun, exciting manga that all yaoi lovers would enjoy. It reminds me a lot of my favorite yaoi manga, "Fake". I actually read this series on the night before I left for the holidays, and even though I've been online since I haven't had time to sit and write a proper review.

Basically Taki and Goh intercept drugs and do odd jobs for a mysterious bartender. Mostly, they have to use seduction to get people to talk, and it helps that one of them is gay and the other hetero. They basically seduce al
Once again Tateno brings us mounting tension liberally laced with humor as Taki and Goh negotiate the drug world’s underbelly, this time starting with a seedy nightclub that’s harboring a missing drug stash. In this story, the action is outweighed by the intelligence of and superlative teamwork between the two main characters. New factors are introduced by way of new characters called Kanji and Kei. Upbeat and spirited, Kanji presents a farcical element since he’s always crashing through doors a ...more

Really difficult to get past the writing here. Art is really so pretty, but the story is blah.

The second volume redeemed the series for me. I actually sold off volume 1 because of brotherly love scene tweaked my squick factor. Yah, yah I'm someone who writes about fathers and brothers but they are not actually brothers and fathers...if you get my drift. This second volume gave enough of the history of Goh and Taki to make volume 1 beliveable. So much much do I like it? I bought the compendium! It's got to be good to part me from my money. I would like to see Goh's childhood now...

Another excellent volume in this yaoi romance series following drug snatchers Taki and Goh. Loud mouthed Kanji gets introduced and starts working at the roost. We also get Kei, Goh's ex partner/lover return wanting Goh back. Some really nice imagry here like Taki (straight) and Goh (gay) being as poles apart as Penguins and polar bears.

Exciting, action packed stories, gorgeous artwork and strong characters make this series a delight to read.

I love Yaoi, the Japanese term for female authored boy loves boy stories. Yellow is the perfect example of a great Yaoi read. Goh and Taki are undercover partners out to infiltrate a drug ring. Goh is gay and sexually attracted to Taki but Taki is straight and oblivious to Taki's feelings. Or is he?

The stories in this volume were not as interesting as the ones in the first volume. I didn't feel like the characters developed at all, except for in the last act. I know that the story develops tremendously after this volume, but this one by itself was just okay.

A little better -- at least Taki's feeling something; I hate the entire "If I throw myself at someone, they are bound to love me back!" thing going on in vol. 1.
