Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
23:45 started out a little slow, and I wasn’t sure what to expect while reading it. But the story is quite unique, and the development of the characters as well as the twists were what really grabbed my attention. The story is not heavy with romance or even sex as the manga is a Shounen Ai title, but it focuses a lot on the two characters, their interactions and the relationship that does end up developing which makes the story so intriguing.
The only complaint I had was that the ending was rather depressing and unsatisfying. But, considering the whole theme of the manga I wasn’t too surprised on how I ended up feeling in the end. It is very much worth the read especially if you are looking for something different.
