Reception[edit]

Eduardo M. Chavez from Mania.com criticises the manga's backgrounds as "pretty stale".[4] Even though it was a "totally random yaoi" it sold twice as much as the Lodoss manga.[5] The manga has been compared to fellow yaoi manga, Fake for its "haphazard chemistry" between the two protagonists.[6]
