@shyna: Ah, I guess I'm not really going to argue with you on this.
You raise some very good points and admittedly my writing truly leaves a lot to be desired and will perhaps greatly improve after some consideration from what you have said.
I'm sorry that it is not up to your standards, and completely understand that you do not wish to read any more.
I thank you for at least giving it a chance.

This was not worth my time...

...but, on a personal dare, I thought I might want to read at least to 100 pages of this comic. To give it a THOROUGH chance, as it were.

I am not pleased.

Then again, I can't expect much from something like this. I clicked the banner knowing full well by the art and poor design what I was getting into, but I didn't think this comic would be quite as twisted as it turned out to be.

First off, Taisuke is a horrible example of a human being - let alone an angel. Ignore for a moment all the biblical evidence that celibacy and purity are mainstays of the Angelic breed. Just look at the facts: Taisuke is a misogynistic, narcissistic, manipulative, sadistic sociopath. That perhaps would be the worst part of the comic if not for the fact that the Gary Stu, Hiro, is in love with him - the very fact he can love Taisuke after hearing his verbal abuse towards women, witnessing his violent ways, and watching him manipulate, cajole, and demean others is disgusting.

I have concluded, therefore, that Hiro suffers from Stockholm Syndrome.

Having been locked in a tower for so long with only one person to give him any manner of affection has effectively made him enter into an emotionally masochistic, painfully submissive relationship with a controlling asshole. It explains WHY, when a member of his own race, shows up to attempt to speak with him about his dying father, he literally screams for his "knight in shining armor" after having affirmed he would not scream. Which, of course, summoned Taisuke in his shirtless glory to come "save" Hiro and threaten physical harm upon his attacker.

[Sidenote: Angels must really suck at security, because this Demon slipped in twice with little effort.]

Granted, you can argue that Hiro doesn't know said father and therefore can't care, but that would be less of an issue if he came to that conclusion on his own. No, he has to have Taisuke bluntly state that he is "not going anywhere," even before Taisuke knows Hiro's desires on the matter.

Still don't think he's bad? Consider what he did to that Haruko girl after she discovered Hiro was a Demon (frankly, he looks like a human since his most distinguishing Demonic feature - his ears - is covered most of the time) and proceeded to freak the fuck out. NOT ONLY did Taisuke openly order her to "shut the fuck up," but he proceeded to use foul language and a cold, cruel, demanding way while basically throwing her out like garbage. Hiro seemed at first hesitant about whether this situation was right - NOT because of Taisuke's callous treatment and subsequent dumping of the poor girl, but because it may INCONVENIENCE Taisuke in some fashion to lose another girlfriend. THEN Taisuke has the complete and utter sexist audacity to comment on the girl's lack of skills in bed as a chief factor of their emotional rift.

I don't care how you slice it, that's a red flag right there that the man you're so kawaii desu obsessing over is a real prick.

Let us then consider further evidence of Hiro's blatant lack of individuality. I know he's a Gary Stu, meant solely to allow girls to fantasize about being in his position, but does he really have to be so God-awful mindless? If he's not staring blankly into space while Taisuke is making decisions for him or otherwise leading him around by the nose, he's sitting in his little bed THINKING about Taisuke. It's like Taisuke is the only thing that affirms his existence. The very love of flowers that seems to give him some semblance of a personality is brought on only by the fact that Taisuke gave him a flower as his first "gift." In fact, PRIOR to Taisuke, Hiro collected what was termed "garbage." It's as if, once Taisuke showed up, all the shit turned to roses.


Can Hiro have some self-respect, individuality, depth?! Is that so much to ask for in my BL? In my romance? I guess it is. Ignore the passing fair art, the irritating typography, and the poor toning. Ignore even the lack of proportion, perspective, or expression. What this BL lacks, more than anything, is a relationship.

I'm not sticking around for the next 100 pages to look for it.

What an asshole

@shyna: Wow, that is pathetic. You just wasted all that time just being a b***h about something you claim to not care about or wanted to read in the first place? That is sad. Also, most of the bullshit you spouted doesn't even make sense either. You don't seem to know wtf you are talking about or maybe you are projecting your own thoughts onto someone else's work as you probably have a lot of problems you are just looking to bitch about.

For one, Taisuke is sexually conflicted/confused. He is having issues in figuring out and coming to terms with his sexuality and he cares deeply about his friend he has known for 16 years so far. He got pissed at that girl because she was being judgmental and mean to his best friend and Hiro means more to him than anyone so yeah, he told her they were through and to fuck off. He doesn't want someone like that in his life anyway since Hiro is a big part of his life. Also, the biblical bullshit you claim is "evidence" I would like to recommend that you shove that up your ass where you pulled it from as this is a story and world that is created by the writer and s/he can do wtf they want with it (and to be honest it would be a pretty boring story if all the characters were perfect and all the demons were just evil and it was all black-and-white crap). Also, angels are not described much in the bible and to be honest they are never even said to have wings in the first place so all the stories and illustrations you ever see of angels are technically not aligned with your bullshit "biblical evidence". That was iconography made by artists later on, not by the bible's actual description or any of that crap. Actually know wtf you are talking about before you spout that shit.

Another thing, Hiro cares about Taisuke because he loves him and Taisuke has been kind to him since they were little and did his best to show him the world when no one else would. He isn't being abused by Taisuke and has never been hurt or verbally abused by him in any way. He cares about him and the reason he does not care for his father or what happens to hell is because he loves Taisuke in a way that he wouldn't leave his side no matter what. Hiro himself calls for Taisuke when the guy tries to have him come back because he doesn't want to leave. Taisuke just stands up for him and states that for similar reasons.

Back to the girlfriend thing, Hiro didn't want to make Taisuke unhappy and he has said that he is willing never to tell him about his feelings as long as he can stay by his side and they can be happy together. He doesn't want to mess up Taisuke's happiness or burden him as Taisuke has already been so kind to him and does so much for him in the first place. He has individuality and there is much more to Taisuke's character but you just don't seem to care about any of that and just want to bitch and insult something you don't even know anything about. Just fuck off you giant sentient fart and go find somewhere else to troll >_>

@shyna: I'm gonna keep this short, piss off you horrible excuse for a person, next time you don't like something don't give in to the need to hurt others realize that what your trying to convey is NOT criticism it's just plain mean, don't comment on any comic that you deem "not worth your time", just stop reading it, there's no need to be rude, sure you can have your opinion but if you know your's is only going to put down the author and make everyone else who enjoys the comic upset, then just keep them to your bloody well self!

Honestly were you never taught to have manners?

Posted at July 15th, 2012, 7:05 pm

Ok, four points.

@shyna: I read this comment and think, "Why?" Why would a person go out of their way to hurt the feelings of someone who is obviously trying their hardest? Now, everyone is entitled to their opinions, but what did Crimson Chains ever do to insult you to the point where you would spend, what, thirty minutes trying to bring this comic down. I mean, I wrote the worst story in the world and posted it online and no one pointed it out as horrible, even when I admitted it to be so. You know why? Because it's impolite.

Also, 1) Taisuke is meant to be a jerk, that's kinda the point. One of the main conflicts is Taisuke's jerkiness. 2) Hiro has been in a tower for his whole life, only ever speaking to Taisuke. No socializing, no experience at all in the world. He isn't expected to have much of a personality. And 3) The reason he's so weak and non-opinionated is, again, that he has no life experience. For all he knows, without Taisuke making his decisions for him, he might have gotten himself killed, someway or another.

@shyna: You are so ironic..Not worth your time? And you even spent your "precious" time writing out such a rude and unconstructive comment.

If you don't like something, shut up and click the "Back" button. Does the button elude you? Then just close the window. You do know how to right? It's just the X button at the top right of your screen.

And if the comic is really as bad as you claimed it was, then really, I highly doubt it would have garnered as much fans as it would have. Besides, if you want realism so much, watch a documentary, read an autobiography, or better yet, look at your own life.

The author is sharing something (for free) that they have put time and effort to do. The basic courtesy is to at least not be mean or rude to them. You seem to lack basic respect and common manners in this sense.

Your disdain for the characters makes one think that maybe you got dumped by a guy like Taisuke, who turned out gay and loved a guy like Hiro. Or maybe you were rejected by such a guy. When you said this comic was lacking a relationship, maybe you were referring to yourself, who is lacking one yourself. Besides, if you're saying that one won't fall for another with bad character, well, you've definitely not fallen in love before. What's more, Taisuke hadn't been bad to Hiro. In fact, he treated him really well. So your arguments don't hold and only serve to convince me that you're just jealous.

Good riddance that you're not sticking around too, because I doubt anyone here would want to see you anyway.

Good day.

@shyna: What the fuck is wrong with you. Who said the artist made this comic to fucking please you? What? Does the world revolve around you now? Does everything have to be what you make it? If you don't like it, go and make your OWN fucking comic! Oh wait, that's right. Nobody would bother reading your piss ugly comic anyways, because you have no skills and nothing going for you other than your piss poor attitude.
You know what?
Whatever. Get a fucking life. Can someone just block this bitch already? >:U

@Crimson Chains: And I thank YOU for replying to this motherfucker in the calmest of ways. It shows control and kindness to do that.
Unfortunately, I was not as kind and let her have it. Sorry 'bout that. But please don't let comments like that stop you from doing what you do. You've got fans here and we're here to stay. Can't wait to see more from you. :D

Posted at August 29th, 2012, 9:46 pm

@shyna: Just shut the fuck up.
