HASH(0xa223c81c) von 5 Sternen Among the Best BL Titles of the Year! 5. April 2009
Von T. LaPonte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Toko Kawai is fast becoming one of my favorite BL mangaka. Her stories are sweet, but always have a depth that is often lacking in the BL genre. Her characters are human, flawed and believably earnest in their desires. Cut is no exception.

As its title might suggest, the focus of this story is very dark, angsty and bittersweet. Chiaki Sakaguchi and Eiji Yukimura are scarred young men, both figuratively and literally. How they each became that way, though, is quite different. Eiji fears human contact and what that might drive him to do if he feels threatened. He tries to escape his pain-filled past by covering up his body and the secrets its scars hide. Chiaki, on the other hand, is trying to forget the pain of his past by creating new pain in his present. He feels alone and unwanted, even surrounded by friends and female admirers. The two find each other by accident, and are bound together by shared secrets. The relationship that develops between them is sweet, full of pain, but more importantly, full of understanding and emotional support.

Toko Kawai's talent for characterization shines through in this manga. Instead of seeming melodramatic, as its heavy subject matter might induce, her characters are surprisingly down to earth: troubled but not inhuman. She is truly a creator who knows how to work subtlety. Even in her love scenes, which are always (almost frustratingly) reserved, she gets across meaning and emotion with very little effort. The magnitude of the situation is brought to life through carefully crafted plot and character development.

Be warned, however, that this book is still very heavy, and at times nearly grotesque, not only in the things that Chiaki subjects himself to with a blade, but also with his own body. If underaged abuse makes you queasy, you might want to consider passing this title over. However, the issue is dealt with in a very serious, and not BL-fantasy, way (as in, it isn't something the reader is expected to voyeuristically enjoy), so I would argue from an educational position that it is not only pivotal to the story it is telling, but also a testament to the potential of the genre to improve awareness.

Cut has not only been one of the most anticipated English releases of the last six months for me, but I would argue will stand up against other titles, both BL and non-BL, to be one of the best manga releases of 2009. It is truly Toko Kawai's masterpiece, and other books dealing with the same subject matter have a tall order to fill to match its subtle brilliance. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0xa2242dec) von 5 Sternen A gem of a story. Haunting and Unforgettable! 11. April 2009
Von Niki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
T LaPonte has given a great review on this one. I love Cut. It is my favorite from my must read mangaka, Toko Kawai. I am so glad it is finally released in English. Thank you DMP!
Cut is beautiful on so many fronts. It is a haunting and poignant story of loss, pain, salvation and love. The 2 characters, Chiaki and Eiji are simply unforgettable, their story resonating deeply long after I finished it the first time. The theme in the story is a heavy one and Toko Kawai has handled it so well both in her expressive art and deeply effective words.

Both Chiaki and Eiji are tormented young men, haunted by horrible pasts which refuse to let them go. Chiaki tries to erase his pain by inflicting more pain on himself to the point of self abuse. Eiji is so caught up in his painful past that certain incidences could trigger him reliving his memories, resulting in more pain and sometimes violence. These 2 young men are complex characters. Chiaki is the flamboyant one hiding his pain well while the quiet Eiji tends to buries deeper within himself. Fate brought them together as much as their own aloneness. Their relationship develops seamlessly from initial curiosity to openess to care as they are binded together by each's painful past. Through each other, Chiaki and Eiji somehow manages to heal. Certain scenes are almost painful to read but Toko Kawai manages it so well. Sometimes words are not enough to do justice to the review of an excellent story and Cut is just that. Cut is a Yaoi masterpiece and all Yaoi fans should not miss it. I am just happy to finally have my own English hardcopy.

HASH(0xa22421c8) von 5 Sternen Toko Kawai, awesome as always! 4. Mai 2009
Von P. Self - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Toko Kawai is simply amazing. She has always been one of my top favorite mangakas, if not my number one favorite. In this book she has exemplified everything I love most about her writing. Her great ability to write not only cute, fluffy stories, but also serious, poignant ones, has kept her on my top shelf. "Cut" is definitely one of the more serious ones, probably the darkest one I've read of hers so far. Still, she keeps it from being too heavy to swallow, and the relationship between Eiji and Chiaki is really sweet. I especially love the ending:) I also love aggressive ukes, so that was a plus for me! These serious yet sweet books, such as "Just around the corner" and now "Cut" make me an even more enthusiastic Toko Kawai fan!

HASH(0xa21fcdd4) von 5 Sternen Walking Wounded 26. Oktober 2010
Von The Kimi-Chan Experience - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Toko Kawai's Cut is not one of those Boy's Love stories where everything is fluffy, funny and light, nor is it one that has drama punctuated by lighter moments of comedy. It tackles several serious issues, ranging from survivor guilt, child abuse, mental unbalance, self harming, and incest and paints a portrait of two young men on the cusp of adulthood with them. It makes for a dramatic read that escapes from being mere melodrama thanks to the fine degrees of emotion her characters portray. Often BL stories of this sort layer on the trauma thickly, with one bad thing after another traumatising our already fragile leads, but she holds back from that and lets the mental and physical scars of the past do their job. It was quite refreshing to see the network of people who actually did care about the two boys hover about, but unable to connect as they wished thanks to the emotional barrier each boy has placed up: they and the outside "normal world" are simply too bright from where they sit in darkness. The two boys wish to escape reality, not rush towards it, and so they reject these kind hands, grasping only at each other. The sky imagery is a subtle analogy, but a powerful one, as the story begins speaking about how the sky is too bright, too blue, with references to the sun and sky afterwards popping up throughout the tale.

It is a one shot so the whole storyline moves at a deceptively slow pace in only 181 pages, though when the climax of the story occurs, the resolution seems to come fast upon its heels. Only, Kawai gives us an epilogue, and I'm quite glad she did. You see, mental scars don't really have a final resolution, as her epilogue demonstrates. You can reach a place where you can handle life, but deep psychological scars never truly fade. So, be forewarned, it's angsty, it's violent, and very disturbing to read, but it is also one of the sweetest love stories I have ever read. It is that all to often unseen BL story, the one where the relationship itself is of prime importance, and where each one of the pair looks to his partner's needs before his own. It's deeply meaningful, touching, and one where if you can handle the dark subject matter, will earn a special place within your heart.

HASH(0xa21fcf84) von 5 Sternen Greatest yaoi manga in existence 14. Oktober 2009
Von Sakuya - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This was one of the greater yaoi manga to come out in a long time.
The characters are really this mangas selling point.
Chiaki is outgoing, kind and youthful. Eiji is rough around the edges, gentle and loving. The two of them are drawn together through curiosity but grow together through affection. There relationship is a compelling and beautiful experience for the reader. I felt for them and I wanted these two to make through there hardships. I can't praise this enough. I can read this everyday and have a different emotional journey with it everytime.
Cut is well worth a second and third look. Yaoi at its finest.
