This is an urban contemporary manga that is shonen-ai/yaoi. I occassionally read M/M provided it's well written and a good story, although admittedly, it's not my first choice of genre. The manga is a psychological thriller that's heavy on emotion, while examining the worst and best of human nature in a place of brutal darkness.

The author/artist is best known for her Angel Sanctuary series, a sinsisterly gorgeous tale of incestous love ladden with biblical angelic/demonic combined east-west myt

Kaori Yuki managed to make an extraordinary plot serial killer specialized on prostitutes and young male prostitute plus one iguana.
It is all about messed childhood and very questionable sexual cravings and lot of blood.
Holly Interlandi
She's written a story about a serial killer and fourteen year old male prostitute who fall in love. There's lots of childhood angst involving clowns and gratuitous iguana symbolism. If you think that sounds weird, just read it. You have no idea to what depths this intimate story goes in punching you in the gut. Shakespeare has nothing on this. Seriously.

ecco lo odio. Perché ora so che come ogni volta piangerò malissimo per i prossimi tre mesi. se questa storia fosse un libro un film o qualsiasi cosa mi farebbe morire malissimo in ogni cosa. Questo manga é il motivo per cui nessuna storia d'amore, per quanto travagliata potrà mai toccarmi come questa, mai.

I loved every minute of this story. Heartbreaking and intense throughout, I was bawling by the end.

Boy's Next Door est un recueil de 3 histoires. Je vais surtout m'attarder sur la première, du même nom que le manga. Très sombre et portant un minimum sur le yaoi, avec toujours des meurtres à la pelle. Bienvenue dans l'univers de Kaori : des graphismes toujours aussi beaux, toujours aussi trash qu'à l'habitude.
On y découvre ici Clay, un instituteur surnommé Blindman, un tueur en série qui s'en prend uniquement aux prostitués. Nous découvrons son histoire, ses derniers meurtres, et surtout son e

He aquí otro ejemplo de un gran manga hecho por Kaori Yuki. La autora parece no tener problemas para hablar de temas que en el Japón actual, siguen siendo tabues o ignorados. Ella explota esto en su favor y nos trae geniales mangas.
Tengo que decir que me revolví un poco con la historia, conforme lo leía, pero al final lo entendí todo. Aunque debo decir que para ser un one-shot estuvo bastante bien hecho, no me pareció tan completo como otros trabajos de la autora. Las razones que conducían a Law
