I just can't read this as a serious attempt at dealing with LGBT people. It's more like ... I don't know. On the level of porn lesbians or something.

The author is a hentai artist so you are not far off lol. This is his first “serious” manga.

LGBT people reduced to a fetish for porn addicted readers.

Sad.

It’s disappointing but not surprising.

This went from some edge to mono-wire blade in few chapters.

Man, why does yaoi always have to be some borderline-bdsm possession play nonsense? I'm all for guys loving guys, but every time they're portrayed in manga it's never in a healthy relationship, and it's always based entirely on physical attraction.

Call it edgy if you want, but I certainly find the twisted voice of lust to be realistic to a degree. It's OTT but in reality when you get fantasies or desires that are hard to control, especially when you're young and full of hormones, it's pretty crazy.

Maybe people with lower sex drives or something don't get it.

I don't find Seiji unbelievable. He's crazy, but in ways that are, sadly, painfully common. I'm not reading this to find good representation or something, from the first this has been a trashy sort of manga about damaged people, and that's what I expect. That it delivers. If you want Morishima Akiko fluff you don't read NTR.

If this was about Seiji's problems, maybe it would prove to be interesting. But here, it seems to be about "LGBT people".

  • The lesbian is a manipulative bitch
  • The gay is a creepy psycho
  • The bisexual is a cheating whore
  • The trans (Sumon) is nondescript at the moment.
  • The crossdresser/genderfluid is just unconsciously wishing to be someone's bitch.

If this author tried to be an "ally" by showing a gallery of "realistic" LGBT characters, he isn't doing a very good job. He's just reinforcing stereotypes.

Huh. I was just checking the comments to see if this got better, but it looks like it hasn't? The first chapter seemed interesting, but from the sound of it it went down hill fast and kept going.

Can't wait to see what kind of fucked up direction they'll take the trans guy in ^^

I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers that.

"Saitei da, ore'tte..."

It was the first time he used the assertive/manly "ore" (instead of the subdued/childlike "boku") to refer to himself. A sign that he was growing up. The context, though... lol.

Dude that dark side of him that coaxed him into pushing further was really well done, the character design is simple aside from the mask but we do see the same moth re-occurring when he had a mental breakdown in the middle of the rain. I don’t care about LGBT or whatever but the way it portrayed his inner thoughts and struggles and his expressions were really well done. At the end of this chapter it does leave hope but at the same time he only pushes his dark desires even deeper never solving or facing them. That constant battle is what I wanna see and I’m genuinely interested what he will do when it all comes to an end (the manga)

I wonder if the author is trying to make it funny on purpose or if they are aiming for a serious vibe but failing so badly.

What a piece of shit character. Seriously fuck her.

Also fuck her backstory, I hope it's tragic.

That's actually a pretty good Rumiko Takahashi style drawing on the cover. Why does the rest of the manga look so bad?
