For someone like me that’s never been into anime, manga or anything else like that I’ll have to admit that I’m slowly becoming addicted to yaoi. Not sure if I’m fangirl status yet, but I do enjoy them when well written.

Unfortunately I’ve been trying to read them on my kindle paper white, which has been ok until this one...
This one looked so beautiful in black and white that I felt I was really missing out on seeing it in color.
Could have done with a little extra world building maybe? But whatever, I loved it anyway, it is absolutely everything I wanted to read at the moment.

Meh. Didn't love the drawing style, and overall not really my thing.
Elaine White
While I *generally* liked the book, I didn't feel like it came across as a complete, cohesive story. There was no "endgame" or goal for the characters to reach. One had lost all memory of their childhood friendship, and the other had sacrificed his human world to be with him, knowing he'd lose his memories too. I was hoping there would be some resolution, some trick that meant because they were together that memory loss wouldn't work, but it never came. The story could easily have ended halfway ...more

This might be my favorite yaoi manga I've read so far... Not necessarily because of the feelsy-ness of it, but just because it's so hauntingly beautiful. The art is lovely, and the creativity of the world drew me in immediately.

The main character works at an inn that serves as a barrier between the world of spirits and the mortal world. The spirit world is ruled by a human being who is sacrificed to live forever in the spirit world and slowly lose their memory and their humanity. That human bei

Quite interesting

Let's get the fangirling out of my system first: I WANT MORE! I WANT TO READ MORE ABOUT THEIR LIFE TOGETHER! MY FEELS!

OK, with that out, let's talk about the story and characters.

I admit that I'm a sucker for myths and supernatural stuff, even more so when it has to do with culture, folklore or history. So, the fact that this story has a bit of each is great.

The art is a mix of realistic and fantastically mixed components with a touch of historical references.

Now, as it was onl

This was my first yaoi! The cover art captivated me immediately as did the rest of the illustrations throughout the volume. I went in with no expectations. Ita obvious the story is drawn out so there are more "good parts". I'm not complaining. I do wish they would have used it more as a tool to advance the plot. Again, this is my first yaoi, I'm not sure if this is anoatrern or not. Overall I enjoyed it. I'd love to know more of the lore and their lives continuing on. I enjoyed it!
Amano works at an inn where the transient world meets the eternal world on the regular. One day the Moon King comes for a visit and Amano is stunned to find he looks like his childhood friend Mitsuki who fell into the sea and was lost. Omg, this made me cry. Lovely storytelling, wonderful art. Extras at the end featuring the Zhenniao birdman character.

Beautiful art, bittersweet story

The story between Tsukuyomi and Amano is bittersweet but the art is beautiful. The bonus story between Tsai Hong and Fei is sweet and cute with a little humor. I liked both. Well worth the read.

Bellissimi disiegni, storia a tratti piuttosto angst proprio come piace a me. L'ho preferito a Replay per esempio.
Gratis con Kindle Unlimited.
