Loveless (Volume 3)
So, I started buying Loveless Manga. And seriously, all my savings gone in one day for this series. Yun Kouga, you better finish this or else! Anyway, the manga is so far really worth all my money. Ritsuka is just so cute! And Soubi? Hot.
So, why will anybody read this? Well, the concept of the manga is really interesting- the ears stuff and the battle with spells- it’s not like any other manga that is so slice of life. It’s dark yet easy to read. I can’t explain it much, but it’s very interesting and entertaining. It gets you hook and makes you buy its volume in one day!
But Soubi is really creepy. And there’s a lot of unanswered questions… maybe that’s why it’s much more interesting?
Anyway, if you want to download it… here’s the site: Digitalskies and Shoku-dan.
That’s it! And… I already have an earlier review for Loveless- it’s here.

Ritsuka’s life has never been normal. At the time of his older brother’s murder, he lost all of his memories and became a different person. He feels he’s never been loved for who he is. Enter a mysterious ‘adult’ friend of his older brother, Soubi, who always wears bandages around his neck. Carved there is ‘Beloved’… Because he was Seimei’s warcraft, someone who, with the ‘sacrifice’, (Ristuka and Seimei are ‘sacrifices’) fights psychic battles using spoken word. Ritsuka must deal with Soubi’s feelings for him. Does Soubi care abut him because Seimei told him to… Ritsuka is angry that Soubi might not even care about him for who he is, but he still fights alongside of him on the search for Nanatsu no Tsuki, his brother’s killer. One interesting and wonderful fact that draws many girls to this series: it has catboys. This story focuses on relationships and is very clearly shounen-ai, or yaoi. Ritsuka must kiss or often lick Soubi during fights for strength… But he’s ‘Loveless’.
The first volume covers almost a third of the anime. What I like most about the manga is the not-s-serious atmosphere or aura it has. By the start of the manga, unlike the all so serious anime adaptation, Ritsuka is dawn with cute and chibi faces. That happened only in the end of the anime. Also, the anime didn’t follow the manga closely and though I really like the anime, the manga isn’t bad itself.
As for the drawing, I really love the manga’s art. It’s not that different but the manga gives a more beautiful effect.
So far, Loveless is definitely worth the time.
I love you, Ritsuka.
Why would you say that to someone who doesn’t want you to? Who gets hurt just by the mere mention of it? When you know yourself that you might not be able to bear the consequence?
Just don’t say it.
