    Hmm.Have read volumes 1 through 13 Still don t know what s supposed to be going on.I would give the pretty artwork 4 stars, although the quasi realistic style, without exaggerated caricature, makes many of the characters hard to tell apart at a glance, or even a second glance, which adds to the confusion The cat ears as outward and visible markers of virginity, I can roll with as psychological symbolism, because what else is this medium for The child abuse themes, well, they were trendy back Hmm.Have read volumes 1 through 13 Still don t know what s supposed to be going on.I would give the pretty artwork 4 stars, although the quasi realistic style, without exaggerated caricature, makes many of the characters hard to tell apart at a glance, or even a second glance, which adds to the confusion The cat ears as outward and visible markers of virginity, I can roll with as psychological symbolism, because what else is this medium for The child abuse themes, well, they were trendy back when this thing first got off the ground years ago.It s the live action vaguely sorcerous gaming plot that baffles me Why are these people doing this in the first place, who is paying for it all, why are some tiny elite of people fighting pairs and most not, does anyone in the not category of the general public even know about it it does appear to be a secret activity why isn t it a televised professional sport, why does this even work in world Possibly the wrong sorts of questions to be asking of this manga, but there ya go.Ta, L

    It s kind of weird to call this manga yaoi since there s no sex at all and the main hero is a 12 year old boy But it doesn t fit in the non yaoi category either because of the way Soubi restores his energy through a kiss But Soubi is adamant that he feels no sexual desire for Ritsuka, he says that maybe one day they will have sex but not until Ritsuka grows up Besides that, this volume is overall rather weird Yun Kouga tries to raise interest without revealing the plot and that leads It s kind of weird to call this manga yaoi since there s no sex at all and the main hero is a 12 year old boy But it doesn t fit in the non yaoi category either because of the way Soubi restores his energy through a kiss But Soubi is adamant that he feels no sexual desire for Ritsuka, he says that maybe one day they will have sex but not until Ritsuka grows up Besides that, this volume is overall rather weird Yun Kouga tries to raise interest without revealing the plot and that leads to much confusion But the story is interesting and since I saw the anime, I know bits and piece about what will happen next, so I know better than to give up on it Also, Yun Kouga is quite obsessed with games, isn t she I mean, like Yu Gi Oh games Both Loveless and Gestalt use this theme a lot although Gestalt less and less in later volumes Only her Earthian manga didn t have this theme at all and that s probably why it s my favorite work of hers yes, I m no fan of games

    Loveless great story but I m uncomfortable with the relationship age gap He s 11 and the other one is 20 The middle schooler is kissing him, but it not like sex, perhaps a power thing but the older one says things like now I m getting hard I really have this cringe thing going on when I got the ages I know it s a Manga, not real but well I ll move on the rest of the series before I put my judgmental Judy cap on and slam the hammer down I ve only seen glimpses and there could be Loveless great story but I m uncomfortable with the relationship age gap He s 11 and the other one is 20 The middle schooler is kissing him, but it not like sex, perhaps a power thing but the older one says things like now I m getting hard I really have this cringe thing going on when I got the ages I know it s a Manga, not real but well I ll move on the rest of the series before I put my judgmental Judy cap on and slam the hammer down I ve only seen glimpses and there could be a lotto it.The art work is wonderful, the characters interesting and the mystery engaging

    I think this is the first manga volume I ve ever read all the way through It s odd And a little queer, which I guess is good Unfortunately, it s also a little confusing I like the general idea, but in terms of actually getting to a story, this collection is lacking Not sure if I want to continue reading it.Twelve year old Ritsuka s brother has died And the Ritsuka we get to meet only has memories from the past two years He has forgotten the things that come before There s a traumatic eve I think this is the first manga volume I ve ever read all the way through It s odd And a little queer, which I guess is good Unfortunately, it s also a little confusing I like the general idea, but in terms of actually getting to a story, this collection is lacking Not sure if I want to continue reading it.Twelve year old Ritsuka s brother has died And the Ritsuka we get to meet only has memories from the past two years He has forgotten the things that come before There s a traumatic event is stopping him from remembering, but I m not sure what it is In the meantime, his mother is unforgiving Constantly asking for her Ritsuka to return.One day at his new school, a 20 year old stranger called Soubi shows up, claiming to know Ritsuka s brother, Seimei Turns out they were a Fighter and Sacrifice unit When Seimei died, Soubi became Ritsuka s fighter unit One person fights using spells, the other withstands the damage Soubi and Ritsuka have a sort of love hate relationship It seems Soubi is gay, and I think he has a boyfriend, but he loves Ritsuka Whether or not this is because he is bonded to him now as his fighter unit, I have no idea It s odd But they re investigating the murder of Ritsuka s brother s death now Together And they have to fight off a team who wants to take Ritsuka to the people who killed his brother.Lastly, people who have not lost their virginity have the tails and ears of cats Once those disappear, they are adults It took a while to understand that this was the case And it was a little weird.Who would I recommend this to I m not sure I know anyone who would read it Maybe Melissa But it s a little far out And normally I dig far out Still processing

    Compared to many, I m a manga novice I didn t grow up with Disney Art classes were purgatory As a writer, I tell stories with words Telling stories with pictures never really got me But the few mangaka I ve recently been introduced to are slowly changing my mind Yun Kouga is certainly one of them mainly due to Loveless.Some people find this story disturbing, given that the main characters are both male When I see a good love story, I tend not to worry about gender Finding love is somet Compared to many, I m a manga novice I didn t grow up with Disney Art classes were purgatory As a writer, I tell stories with words Telling stories with pictures never really got me But the few mangaka I ve recently been introduced to are slowly changing my mind Yun Kouga is certainly one of them mainly due to Loveless.Some people find this story disturbing, given that the main characters are both male When I see a good love story, I tend not to worry about gender Finding love is something that s to be treasured, not thrown out because it s inconvenient or doesn t fit stereotypes That s my take, at least feel free to differ.Loveless tackles a lot of thorny issues as part of its storyline The main pair of the story are both male One partner is an adult, the other clearly still young Other pairings are all male or all female Then there are issues of dominance and submission Parental violence Mental illness Betrayal General ignorance and looking the other way as displayed by Ritsuka s teachers in the face of his recurrent injuries and excuses His friends attempts to get him to open upIssues like these are difficult to address Addressing them without preaching is eventricky, but Loveless manages it Everything that happens to Ritsuka and Soubi is seamlessly bound into the plot And the fantasy elements make it a great adventure story
