Reception[edit]

"The art conveys that ZE is tense and dramatic without being overly melodramatic, and the story emphasizes character over sex as much as any other yaoi I’ve ever read." — Leroy Douresseaux, Comic Book Bin.[28] "While ZE has its flaws, I ultimately found it to be enjoyable and thought it improved in the second volume." — Michelle Smith, Pop Culture Shock.[29] "The art style is engaging, with varied characters, and fun. It’s deliciously risqué but doesn’t sacrifice the tenderness between characters either when the moment turns romantic and not only erotic." — Rachel Bentham, activeAnime.[30]
