Hoshi No Yakata [manga rec]

This was definitely a good read, and I recommend it to anyone who likes hardcore yaoi and emotional-rollercoaster type manga. XD;; The plot is centred around an S&M brothel of sorts, called the Hoshi no Yakata, and the people who live and work there. Despite most of the sex in it being BDSM sort of stuff (you know, burning, cutting, whipping, bondage, the works), most of the plotlines and arcs are really very sweet and touching about different relationships between people, and surprisingly, a lot of it is pretty deep. Most of the plots are either about the workers at the Hoshi no Yakata realizing something about themselves (and most of the time running off with some lover XD;; ) or the animosity between Hoshi no Yakata and its Chinese rival, Airenrou. It's quite a good read, so long as the BDSM aspects won't bother you. I got very attached to most of the characters, and though I disliked the villains for what they did, I could also understand their motives (for the most part, anyway XD;). A lot of the themes, actually, were based on the line between dominance and submissive, and who was what, etc, which was confusing and amusing at the same time. XD;; The art was gorgeous (plus, no censors! always a plus.), though a lot of the boys were pretty girly, which I sometimes have trouble with (as in, if they weren't half-naked a lot of the time, I wouldn't have thought they were guys). Something I like, people's hair grew out, which makes stories more believable to me. All in all, I very much recommend reading Hoshi no Yakata!

If you're interested, let me know and I'll burn you a disc!
