Business as usual.

Kazahaya and Rikuo take another shady 'side job' from Kekei, this time infiltrating an exclusive, secluded all-boys high school in the mountains.
Their mission is to find a supposedly 'enchanted' ring and get it to a client.
Their only problems are that
1( they don't know where the ring is.
2( they don't know who their client is.
3( as usual, King Little Bitch Kekei has told them exactly jack shit about the mission besides what their objective is.

No pressure, right?

Kazahaya, having

Some enjoyable train reading. Only one story in this volume, with a bit more gay content than what I remember from the first two.

The closing chapter to Legal Drug. Wow. I have no words.

First of all: mentions of r*pe trigger warning for anyone looking to have a read.

I have... never cried so much at one manga. The ending of their job in this volume was so emotional, so beautifully written and it really got to me. It was so pure and so sweet. I don't think I've ever cried at anything so much since I read Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog.

The art work in this is so amazing and the plot line and story

(For all 3 books) Legal Drug is the story of Kazahaya Kudo, a man with a gift. Anything he touches, he sees visions about the object or person.Book one tells how Kudo came to be in this situation. After being found, dying in the streets, by Rikuo, he became roomates with him and works at the Green Drug Pharmacy with Rikuo, where his boss, Kakei, sends the two of them on missions for him that only Kudo could handle. Book two tells how Kakei sends the duo

The boys only have to undertake one mission in this volume, but it's a long one. They enroll in a private school to get their hands on a mysterious ring. Kazahaya is stunned to learn how open the students at this all-boys school are about relationships. They have a special tree for students to express their feelings to one another and a festival that leads up to a marriage ceremony. The bride is chosen by popular vote and this is the best chance Kazahaya has to get his hands on that ring.

In my review for vol. 2, I noted that it does one of the things this sort of book always seems to do, and that's put our main character in a dress. In this volume (the final for the series under its original title) we get another one - the all-boys boarding school.

Our two heroes get sent to said boarding school on a mission to find a ring, but they end up finding all sorts of other things - ghosts, more dresses, doppelgangers and the grand mystery (to Kazahaya at least) of dudes in

Last volume Tokyopop published of this supernatural BL series. Unlike the previous volumes, this only has one story - the boys go undercover in a boys school to retrieve a mysterious ring. The only way to get it is to win the popularity contest of school bride & groom. Yup more cross dressing again for Kudo and a strange tale of astral projection due to unrequited feelings.

Another intriguing volume. Its really frustrating that Tokyopop didn't continue with this series because the artork is

Although it's only been 3 volumes, this manga shows a lot of promise in the way of how the plot is progressing.

Rikuo and Kazahaya are entertaining as usual, and their relationship really heats up in volume 3 with their latest case at an all-boys' school. Kazahaya's gender bending antics and cluelessness are hilarious. If you're into shounen-ai, then you'll find the abundant hints here quite a highlight. Aside from that, the mysteries surrounding the characters certainly keep readers on the edge

Sad that there are no more volumes, and even sadder that so many questions were left unanswered, but overall at least the volume didn't end with a character sobbing in the shower (I'm looking at YOU, Hero-Heel!).

There's a little cosplay, great connection between Rikuo and Kazahaya, and the case they work in this volume comes to a satisfying conclusion.

I want more volumes, though. Hero-Heel was updated two years later. There's hope for all unfinished series out there, right? (like I can talk).

Well, I almost gave this volume two stars. But again, the cliffhanger was excellent. There are a few books that do this - are crappy until the ending, which saves it. I remember now why I was so angry that this series was put on hold. I wonder if they'll ever pick it up again.

Really, the story in here was pretty weak. But the cliffhanger was just too cool to resist. I remember enjoying the two lead characters' rocky relationship. The slow degree to which their fondness develops is still good,

This one breaks the pattern by being One Long Story away from Green Drug store.

Here CLAMP starts drawing Kazahaya with cat ears and tail when he gets upset (like every 10 pages, or every other page when he is hanging out with Rikou) and it's a goddamn delight. It continues to be a flirty, boys love-y supernatural manga by CLAMP! features some excellent cross dressing, swooning, and sexy implications.

I really liked the premise of this volume, Kazahaya and Rikuo going undercover to an all-boys school that is about to celebrate a marriage ceremony! Kazahaya and Rikuo's relationship is also becoming more romantic rather than just all the one sided banter.

I have enjoyed re-reading this story and am definitely ready for more!

I think that was the first or second book of this series I read (I selected the series Alichino and Legal Drug as my entry into the world of Manga). I was confused about Kudo being portrayed as having fox (?) ears when he was angry. This wasn't repeated in either Volumes 1 or 2 so I accepted being confused. ;)

I can't wait for Vol. 4!

I found this an interesting spin on the all boys school high school. Themes of homosexuality are in the book but nothing that would offend any reader. The two main characters are placed in an all boys high school to find a coveted ring held by the school.

it was pretty good series. i wish there was a little bit more but i guess not. I can see a relationship between Kudo and Himura coming on, but i guess it was never really brought to attention because there are only three book.

I heard that studio CLAMP is magnificent, but I was very dissapointed by this manga. Some elements were interesting (ghosts of dead fireflies from destroyed lake in Tokyo was beautiful and very touching), but nothing so much special. I hope that other works by CLAMP are better.

I'm really disappointed this is the last book.

It seemed like CLAMP wasn't sure if this volume was its conclusion, giving us a not-so-wrapped up ending as readers might expect.

Still, the series is worth a good read.

Apparently the version I had combined all three volumes into one!
I wish that the relationship between the boys had been developed more, but I did think this was a fun read!

Fun in an all-boys school, this story takes up the whole volume, but it is enjoyable for the shounen-ai moments and seeing Kazahaya in a chinese dress.

Lovely story, the one about the boys school. Though, IMO, a bit too long. Still, it was nice to see a happy ending for a gay couple.
a lot better than the first two in my opinion.

This one-volume long story is really a downfall from the previous suspense supernatural stories and it's also probably the reason this series was discontinued.
