    1. Re reading my favorite manga of all time, just because I love it so much that you can t expect any objective thoughts from me You Higuri simply rocks and Ray and Flor an as they are called in German are just perfect I love how their relationship progresses so slowly that you can t even really call the manga yaoi I love the way Ray and Flor an bicker, Laila s jealousy, her realization that for Ray, Flor an is the one , Solomon s tenacity, No l s cuteness Yes, I love everything about the manga

    2. Turn of the century Paris as done by Japanese manga artist You Higuri Phantom Thief Noir and Florian the sparks are definitely there, but no real flame Still, the storyline is compelling Sort of a Perils of Pauline type plot, with Florian, the son of a noble family fallen on hard times, often needing to be rescued If you read this series for any reason, it s the dashing and drop dead GORGEOUS villian, Azura He makes long platinum hair and an eye patch into grrrowl central Yeah, I m a fangirl On [...]

    3. This manga is pretty typical for yaoi, especially 90s yaoi, with a defined dom and sub who start antagonistic Still, it s done very well and the whole thing creates a compelling mood It s ridiculous for Noir to be 18, but other than that the leads are sexy and have a lot of chemistry together I ll be interested to see how the series works as a whole.

    5. This is a classic boys love manga which is why I gave it the second star The ludicrous plot doesn t really deserve it Florian Rochefort is from an aristocratic but bankrupt family in Paris at the turn of the twentieth century His mother is concerned only with the appearance of wealth and the family legacy a 120 carat diamond.His uncle is an innervate gambler Florian is a twenty year old door mat He meekly accepts his mother s decision to sell him to his eighteen year old distant cousin Ray Balza [...]

    6. Sometimes it s really weird going back to things you liked back in the day Who wouldn t want to read a series about a whip wielding master thief and loan shark who buys himself the son of an impoverished aristocratic family because his eyes look like pretty amethysts Oh, 90s Oh, the nostalgia.You Higuri has many yaoi without the yaoi sort of series all the tropes and trappings are there, but nothing actually happens It doesn t even matter because there s an actual plot and actual characters for [...]

    7. An action based story set in turn of the century Paris with an impoverished aristocrat and a sinister jewel thief This seems far like an adventure manga than yaoi, except for the fact that Noir is obsessed with keeping Florian under his complete control Florian is no wilting flower and doesn t cooperate, so there s lots of confrontation They are both fascinated and enraged by each other, and they don t even know why which essentially is my favorite kind of UST, so bonus points there I don t kno [...]

    8. Read this a while back so I can t remember the plot 100%, but I do remember my general impression of it I liked that the main characters was self sacrificing enough to agree to what happens to him in the book without being a complete doormat Also, I like that his partner or rather, kidnapper is portrayed as doing something wrong when said kidnapping and sexual harassment begins Still the relationship dynamics between the two have been done before and most of the characters are two dimensional In [...]

    10. I got my copy when I bought a blind box of books and this entire series was in it.Wasn t sure what to expect, but the plot is fast paced and action packed and the art is good.The yaoi aspect is almost non existent Seriously, apart from one or two panels, there s hadrly anything to really raise any eyebrows.I did have a problem with how a lot of things are mentioned and never explained or fully explored, but I m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt until I read the rest of the books.

    11. I remember when I first read this that I felt it was one of the best yaoi mangas Well drawn, not quite as unrealistic or forced, not overly dramatic It still has some general inconsistencies and silliness is there a reason Noir has to be 18 , but I found I still rather enjoyed reading this again even as an older adult Full of adventure, fun, and sweetness But boy, do I know what s coming

    12. This series is all fun and game and I do like gentleman thief genre a lot , but the yaoi romance in the story is way too cheesy to my liking Sometime I feel embarrassed just by reading this romance and some of the dialogues sighs

    13. MY first shounen Ai manga I love it, and the whole series that goes along with it I recommend it to anyone who likes yaoi BL, nothing graphic though
