Scarlet By Hiro Madarame, A Great Read!
Scarlet is Madarame Hiro's first manga, and I have to say for a first it is one of the best to put out there. It consists of 3 stories, Scarlet/Scarred being the main story. This manga manages to steal your heart, and if it doesnt with the main story, it will with the other two. Scarlet is about a beautiful mixed-blood named Ryou, whose been lonely most of his life because his appearance keeps people at bay;afraid to approach him. Until a incident causes a boy, Akio, who was one of the people keeping a distance, to talk with him. Since then, they couldnt leave each other alone. Sex,Touching, Kissing, they done it all but You find that the soft- spoken, sweet,and timid Ryou, will do anything and anyone to rid of the loneliness he feels, finding it a temporary warmth to heal him. But when Ryou brings along a girl to Akio, thinking of marrying her, Akio had enough of his philandered ways. But instead of a breakup, a heart breaking story takes place!? I'll be honest, reviewers, I have already read this manga online, but the manga completely stole my heart so I just had to own it. I have read many,many,many yaoi manga, but this is the first where I absolutely felt I had to own it to truly cherish it. Now THATS a yaoi! Madarame-San tends to give very brief sex scenes. In the whole manga, you get a few, but they arent explicit, and honestly, you shouldnt expect it from her, nor feel it was a total loss. The stories themselves are intriguing, and they would still be without the sex scenes. And the art is stunning! Worth every dollar put into this. I recommend it to all yaoi readers who want a yaoi where love and pain walk hand in hand.
