This is a review of the entire series.
I came across this series accidentally and later learned it is considered a "smut" manga. That term makes me laugh, I'd never heard of it before and had to look it up and now that I did, I have to disagree with that classification. The other titles in the "smut" category seemed to focus on sex and the plot is secondary to that. Desire Climax is a real story, with an actual plot that is not gratuitous, and the sex is relevant to the story. The plot is mostly unfocused and bizarre, but it is there. The gist of it is a very rich guy wants a poor girl and will do whatever he has to to get her. He pushes her boundaries which can make some people uncomfortable, but he stops when she says no... and many girls find a sexually aggressive man very attractive! This story contains almost everything that is popular in manga: love, homosexuality, incest, kids living alone without parents, high school drama etc., hence the unfocused plot! Add in a robot, a samurai and a magical girl and we would have had it all, lol! Mostly, the themes in this series and the craziness of the plot are not something I would like, but I was strangely entranced and read the series in 2 nights. It is a weird feeling to be so interested in reading something that isn't even very good?! Reply
