User Reviews For: The Dark Side of Desire
This is the first time I can truly call a Hq manga flawless. It's honestly perfect, I can't find a single thing to complain about, from the plot to the characters. Both the original author and the artist have taken this story very seriously and produced an interesting, tasteful and believable work of fiction with wonderful, well-developed and intriguing characters. The pacing was perfect, nothing felt rushed, the relationships were given the time and attention they needed to blossom, with many flashbacks to the past to develop the leads' budding romance before the tragedy that tore them apart. Said tragedy was also fully explored, consequences and all, not just revealed then swept under the rug, here it left a lasting impact on everyone and we see that. Even the child was well-developed, he's not just some happy kid with no personality and an unjustified desire to be with a dad he never knew, he feels real, like everyone else. This is a real gem and I can't recommend it enough.
