What did you think of the book?
…what a weird fucking book. An unintelligible mess.
I can’t even say there WAS anything about it that I liked. The art wasn’t really to my liking. The story – though gritty like I like it – was actually pretty chaotic or just plain flat (and boring). There was too much weird sex and wank-off angles that really weren’t necessary, especially since this was in no way a humorous tale (as some ecchi manga generally are).
I just… I don’t even know why I picked this up in the first place. I know it had everything to do with that cover, which intrigued and lured me in. BIG mistake that I certainly won’t be repeating again.
Any warnings you wish to make for your readers?
Lots of weird sex and overtly sexual scenes (for really no reason whatsoever), and random acts of violence as well.
Does it count towards any reading challenges?
Tons and tons, per usual.

Would you recommend this book?
Not particularly. In fact I might even go so far as to say avoid it at all costs. It was just… bad.
