I just want to say that I had no idea this was an omnibus edition, I thought it was a yaoi (hey that's Amazon's tags for you) and really didn't know what to expect. I also didn't know this was an anime (but am very pleased to find out it is!) Upon opening the package I was shocked at how large this manga was, I bought it for $12 so I just assumed it was a regular sized manga, didn't know the listing price was 18.99. I eagerly opened it up, and was sucked right in.
Yuki has a power where he can see/feel what others are feeling or traumatic pasts. It is a bit debilitating, but he figures he can live with it and figure out what to do. He was orphaned at birth, and is honestly a genuinely good person. He reminds me of the Tohru from Fruits Basket, expect I find Yuki less annoying. He's so good and knows just what to say, that's where I drew the similarities from. Anyway he starts meeting these new people, and then suddenly he almost gets hit by a speeding car, these are just the beginnings for Yuki as he discovers he does have family, and is a part of something much bigger than he could ever imagine.
The characters are all fantastic, for someone who isn't used to reading mangas, you might want to pay really close attention because some of the blonde characters are similar. However the artist was fantastic, and so detailed, I was really happy and am now looking to see if there's any more works by Hotaru Odagiri. I am very upset that I have to wait until December for the second volume to come out, but will be consoling myself with the anime.
Ok now for the yaoi aspect, there really wasn't one. We get the feeling that Luka and Yuki were intimate in Yuki's past life, but Yuki was a girl, now as a boy there is a bit of affection and flirting, but nothing that would qualify it as a yaoi or even boy love territory. I have hopes, I mean remember Yellow didn't get anything until the fourth volume, but even if nothing comes of it, the plot is so fantastical that it would still make my top manga list. I highly recommend, and you can't beat Amazon's price. Enjoy!
