after months of waiting, i finally got my hands on this volume. even though i don't recommend readers to pick up this volume without checking up the first, it's still easy enough to follow the story.

in this manga, we're finally able to see the resolution of the turbulent relationship between orito and ryuya. ryuya's past concerning orito are also explored, and we get to see the real person behind the smirking facade of orito. although not exactly original plot-wise, the characters are lovable, and that includes the supporting cast. koujima's art is nice and sharp as usual and even if the translation sometimes feel a bit stiff, it's not bad. there are bits of violence and non-con scenes in this installment though, and it's noticeably darker than the first volume. the story moves slowly at first, and kinda have a rushed feeling towards the end, but still very much enjoyable. what can you expect from this installment? well... there's gowns, swords, feuds, rivalry and jealousy... i leave the rest to your imagination.

book 2 contains the remaining chapters of selfish love with no extra or side stories, unlike volume 1. also, there's cameo appearances of some of koujima's characters from another of her work. which is fun for readers who had read some of her other mangas... took me quite a while to figure out which manga the characters were from... ha ha ha.

all in all, this installment is entertaining and provides a solid ending to all the angst and madness that is selfish love. the art is topnotch as usual (see my review of the first volume), and i greatly recommend this volume for those who loved the first book. enjoy!

I've just finished to read this manga... I really liked it! Character design is very fine and detailed, the plot is the kind one that makes you smile. Those images I loved the most where just one of the main characters was drawn in his full beauty; you can find a lot of these throughout the manga. If you love school boys and their innocent way of looking at love, don't miss this yaoi!

The first volume of "Selfish Love," while still kind of repetitive and poorly characterized, wasn't as bad as the second one. In this volume, thankfully the last one in the series, the main characters continue to fight outwardly while inwardly "loving" each other. The lowest point in the already low plot is when Orita ("the bigger one") rapes Ryuya ("the smaller one") because, of course, Ryuya "really wanted it." Other than that, the story is boring, nothing really happens except that the characters are "in love" and some something or other having to do with school kind of barely figures in. Basically, this title made me sick.

This concluding volume is not bad at all but I wished there was more resistance in the end to make the you know what more special, otherwise the story /plot developed nicely.
