    Oh my God, this ridiculous melodramatic manga. I kept vacillating between insulting the characters -- these melodramatic fools! -- and loving on them helplessly because I am an emotional sucker. ;_; My feeling are complicated okay! Sometimes girls simultaneously want to hug a character and kick their shin and run away. Sometimes those girls are me.Let's break this down by character then. I kind of want to shake Yuki because what do you even do with all this pure hearted naivety? What do you even do?! Oh my God Yuki, when a dude cold tries to murder you that's when you stop making excuses for him! Betrayal hurts but being killed hurts more I guarantee it. That is where you are headed if you keep this up.Shusei I want to yell at for a minute and then possibly collapse into tears. You don't even understand, his plotline is ridiculous and melodramatic and also hits me right in the heart. I was more invested in the anime's take on it but considering I was riding the Overidentification Train through his whole arc in the anime and I'm more objective now, that's still pretty strongly invested. Fool! Have some friendship candy.Hotsuma makes me laugh helplessly because this guy has so many feelings and I can't. I might have more in common with him than anyone else in this series because as you may have noticed I ran the emotional gamut reading this volume. Control thyself child! I will work on doing the same.Touko and Tsukomo are adorable and my feelings on them are thankfully nothing more complex than that. I just love them, that's all. It's restful.Lolololololol Luka. Character feelings? No. Deep amusement at how he is the fanserviciest dude to exist in a manga primarily consisting of gorgeously drawn guys? Oh yes.Shirts are meant to cover your chest? I'm sorry ma'am, I don't think I quite follow your logic.Basically are you into extreme melodrama bolstered by pretty art and a cast designed to pander to the female gaze hard? Than pick up Uraboku! You can join me here when you start yelling at the characters while riding the bus. Shh, it's okay honey. I understand. 3.5 stars

    The first half of this volume focuses heavily on Hotsuma and Shuusei's relationship. We get some back-story on their pairing, and then Shuusei is kidnapped by the (hysterically over the top) villain Ashley. Hotsuma searches frantically for him, but Shuusei is convinced that Hotsuma is in love with Yuki and therefore doesn't need Shuusei anymore, so he doesn't fight for his freedom.Then Yuki suffers a betrayal he has a hard time coping with, but in true Yuki fashion we get statements like this: Maybe it's impossible for people to live their lives without hurting anyone, but there are things like warmth and kindness and the depth of feeling. The courage to take a single step. People are also the ones giving me precious things like that.Finally, we learn more about why Luka won't tell Yuki about their relationship in Yuki's previous incarnation. ::swoon::As in the first volume, the romantic elements of the various relationships are hinted at more than actually depicted... a longing glance here, the stroking of hair there... so this might not satisfy if you're looking for yaoi.The battle against the Duras continues, and new characters are introduced who will probably be featured more in the next volume.The translation is clear and I really appreciate the cultural notes at the end.Very much looking forward to volume 3!

    In this volume we get to see more of Luka's seemingly sad past. We also got to know the other characters more [Shusei, Hotsuma, and Takashiro]. Again, some parts of this manga made me laugh, and this is why it's on my favorite list, not to mention that the characters are such an eye candy. ^_^

    Deep and intense, this is NOT light reading (well the weight of the actual volume keeps it from being that already). I love how the relationships are deepening, and the plot grows ever more complex. This is becoming a favorite series.

    So. Much. Angst. But hey, sometimes that's what you crave in a story.

    While reading this, I noticed how the author kept mentioning at the end of each volume how she was planning to add new characters, and each time I saw that I thought "NONONONONO THERE'S TOO MANY CHARACTERS IN THIS ALREADY AND THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME PLEASE DO NOT ADD MORE TO THE CONFUSION!!" .......And then she did. So yeah, my major complaint with this series is that many of the characters look too similar. Luka and Kanata/whatever his other name is look almost exactly alike, Yuki looks like Hotsuma, and then there are two guys with glasses who look the same. I let this slide in the first volume thinking that maybe it was just me being slow to recognize what they look like, but two volumes in now and I'm still having the same problem.My other gripe is Yuki. Poor, sweet Yuki. Look, I'm all for nice, kind people, and I love that our protagonist is such a nice guy. There are too many jerks in this world. The fact that Yuki's "superpower" is his affection for others is really sweet. But he's just too much for me. I'm not a super emotional person, but I think I'd be rolling my eyes at the number of times Yuki cries in this series even if I was. My gosh, you turn the page and there he is crying again. And he's super helpless. Helpless protagonists don't usually bother me (probably because I know I would be one too) but Yuki's helplessness level is SO high that even I'm annoyed with it.All that being said, I do enjoy this series. It's not THE most original or THE most clever or THE most exciting series ever, but it's good for what it is. It's entertainment, and it entertains me quite a bit--I'm binge-reading (binge-reading? Is that a term?) the series. It's fun, engaging, and I'm eagerly waiting to find out what happens next.

    I've watched the anime and I was curious about how the story ends. The manga has so many details and it is too girly for me. I have no idea why I am still reading this series but I'm not going to give up on it yet.

    This one was just grindy. It would probably be better if I had the individual volumes, but I don't. Also yet more characters as if we aren't confused enough.

    So I'll admit, with this being my ultimate guilty pleasure manage series, I'm mostly in it just for the Yuki/Luka ship. The suppoting cast is great and all, but the anime didn't do a lot to sway me into watching for them. But the manga? That's a whole different story.This manga focuses less on the Yuki/Luka main story, and more on the backstory of Hotsuma and Shuusei. It also does a much better job of making them likable and relatable than the anime. In this volume Hotsuma's childhood and how he reacts to people for specific reasons is a lot more solid and explained. Hotsuma has a LOT of character development that the anime just didn't have time for, and I found really interesting. Coupled with the much more expanded dynamic with Shuusei, I can firmly say that this was a much better read than I was expected.I was also surprised to see there was a lot in terms of building on character relationships I hadn't expected to see. Ther was some downright lovely stuff wth Toko and Luka, and a nice little bonding moment between Shuusei and Tsukumo. It's stuff like that that the anime doesn't really have time for, but really flourishes in a manga. I can't sing the chaacter development in this book enough.As I progress through this manga I'm only loving it more and more. The pacing of the story is getting bette, the humor is still spot on and appropriate, and I'm really excited to read even more. This is a solid entry and a full four stars from me.

    I love that we are learning about Shuusei and Hotsuma and getting more of their joint back history and individual back history. I like them both and they seem to be fan favorites. I was sad Hotsuma's friend Shiori got sucked in by a duras!I loved how Yuki helped Hotsuma with his painful remembrance from the past. It strengthens their relationship and actually also Shuusei and Luka's relationships with Yuki too witnessing it!Yuki is missing his friend Kanata and his friend is worried at his new "family's" motives. I love how Tsukumo and Tooko despite not getting detailed back histories are there supporting Yuki and defending him! There are moments between Luka and Tooko and between Hotsuma and Yuki and Shuusei and Luka. These make the whole manga. They are intimate and so revealing about their characters!I loved the Yuki charms and how it protected Tsukumo. Loved how Tsukumo and Tooko would trade things when they go on a mission so they can return to one another to trade them back. (Plus the side story was so revealing about their relationship!)The final arc of the volume was quite good with Takashiro gambling on Yuki and Luka pulling out a win against the cool marionette opast. Kanata pops up like a bad penny. Yuki is totally effected by the outcome. I love how the emotional story is always around Yuki!We meet Kuroto and Furuori! Yay! New Zweilt.BOTTOM LINE: I love how we are getting to know everyone better!

    Oh my God, do I love Odagiri-sensei's artwork! It is absolutely gorgeous, and completely five stars on its own. My problem with this series is Yuki. Yuki makes me want to strangle things every time he comes onto the page. He is every obnoxious Mary Sue character you've ever seen...just in a pretty boy package. Ugh. When it was just Luka fawning over him it wasn't so bad, but once the ENTIRE DAMN CAST started doing it, my eyes rolled back so hard that it hurt. -_- So, why did I give this four stars? Hotsuma and Shuusei. I am an absolute sucker for redeemable angsty characters like that, and I LOVE their dynamic! I was so excited that this volume focused on them. Tsukumo and Touko are also adorable. This entire world is very interesting and unique, honestly...if the Yuki worship was toned down a bit I would absolutely love it.

    Right after reading volume 1 I immediately dove into this one and almost forgot where I was when I finished it. I found myself going back and forth in the pages rereading and trying to get more details and it was totally worth it!! ❤️❤ I love this!!

    "Quotation Marks" "Quotation marks everywhere."I swear, if this manga was a person I was having a conversation with, I'd break their hands to stop them from making air quotes with their fingers.Meticulously.With a ball-peen hammer.

    This is just so dramatically angsty and over the top...but fun. Everyone smolders, even the girls!
