If you're looking for something with depth and a strong story I'd definitely recommend this.

In fact, I liked it so much that I cheated and read the rest in scans because I couldn't wait and I'll definitely be buying the rest as soon as they come out.
Jessica Fletcher
You really seem to sense what these two characters are feeling without being over burdened with too much dialogue. really nice work.

Blue Morning is a period manga about Kuze, the heir to a noble family, and Katsuragi, the family caretaker/butler, who has been guiding Kuze since he was a boy. The story takes off from when Kuze is in high school and is all about the aristocracy, ambition and living up to expectations. The story is bound up with past secrets and the future status of the Kuze family.

I'm a big fan of Shouko Hidaka's manga and am really glad to see more of her work licensed in English. This is a little darker than some of her other work, but as with her other manga, the story and characters are really well developed and interesting. The artwork and characters are also beautiful.

If you're looking for something with depth and a strong story I'd definitely recommend this. A warning though: this isn't the lightest read since the relationship between Kuze and Katsuragi is bittersweet, and the overall tone is kind of dark. I personally felt that the darker edges of the plot added dimension and found myself totally drawn in by the story. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how things unfold in future volumes!

I always like Shouko Hidaka's works and this one is no different. In fact, I liked it so much that I cheated and read the rest in scans because I couldn't wait and I'll definitely be buying the rest as soon as they come out. She writes actual stories, something that is often missing in yaoi. Smut is fine, but if the story isn't good, what's the point? This has both.

It's got strong characters, good art, and an actual mystery story line. The sex in this volume is sparse, and what there is is only moderately explicit. If you want to read the series, be aware that it becomes sexier in the 2nd volume. It's NOT romantic. No roses and candlelight. But I was caught up in the story enough to get Volume 2, so if you're looking for a strong story, I recommend it.

this story is really very good. It feels meaty compared to most other yaoi. there is character developement!! and a plot. The adept storytelling makes the characters actions and motives believable. Of course the sex scenes are beautifully drawn. Hidaka Shoko seems to use a less-is-more approach very successfully. You really seem to sense what these two characters are feeling without being over burdened with too much dialogue. really nice work.
