Extra star for the art, because it is gorgeous. The semes were all so pretty <3 but the stories (3 of them, all involving the yakuza world) developed too fast, and just after a couple of panels, the characters were confessing their love for each other.
I thought the toe rings and the wrist and ankle chain brackets were cute, I just felt like things went by too fast in this story.
