Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
This masterpiece written by Yoneda Kou is one of my absolute favorite BL Manga! I stopped counting how many times i re-read this gem. The Story-line is so perfectly thought through, that although the Manga already consists out of 5 volumes and is ongoing for more than ten years, you can’t help but stay on track and wait impatiently for every update.
It is a must-read for every fan of the Yakuza genre. People who prefer a mature/ adult setting with complex plot will definitely also come at their costs.
this Manga has every thing you wish for; starting with action packed scenes and comical moments followed by some heart-wrenching, tragic episodes. And as if it isn’t enough, you will be treated with plenty of “spicy” scenes where nosebleeds are guaranteed 😉
In my opinion the artwork of Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai is flawless, which makes the whole story even more enjoyable.
