Opinion: It’s so perfect. Bishies as far as the eye can see. I’d buy the books as an art book if I couldn’t even read it. AWESOME graphics.
So this story, is just overwhelmingly amazing. The plot moves so flawlessly. Although I found it hard to get involved in the beginning by chapter three I could barely pry myself away from the computer. When I started I wasn’t sure if I should, it had no romance (bromance but not romance) and it just didn’t seem my thing. Not to mention I get confused with sci-fis, but the story went so well that there was a perfect balance between plot and back story/world story. I was never really confused and it was never tl;dr.
The characters are all so gorgeous, original and fun. Some of them follow stereotypes but they end up being so much more then that. And the plot twists!? AH! So great. Although I could kinda see it coming it still totally broke my heart. You really get invested in all the characters, despite the fact that there are so many.
I don’t know what else to say but read this. The idea was sublime and the series did EVERYTHING right. If you like controversial stories you will love this. And while people were crying bl I just shrugged. Honestly it just looked like friends to me. As friends they loved each other. But that guy and his clone… they were kinda weird. Haha.
READ IT NOW!
Final Rating: 5/5
Extra: There is a sequel that has just been started here: Ilegenes – Giyoku no Koukyoukyoku
