Yellow is not the typical Hard Yaoi story, with H-scenes scattered almost in the entire pages. They took forever to get together, but the storyline was very well written and the art is amazing.

This time, they're after your garden variety heroin that's being "floated" to Japan in a most unique way. Bullets will fly and Goh and Taki - preoccupied with their budding relationship and the reappearance of past flames - may not be able to avoid the crossfire! show more.

The Yellow box set comes with Case and Yellow Volume 4 for the fan looking to keep their set together and protected. The Yellow box set uses heavy cardboard for making a rigid and durable case that stores and shows your collection off with style!

I'm not going to review the storyline, although I will just say it is one of the BEST yaoi of all time, hands down!

What I will review is the box/volume set.
I feel the box is good quality, sturdy. It fits all four volumes nicely. I didn't really care for the art choice on the box, (it is NOT the picture pictured here!!!) It is the same picture as the one found on Vol. 1 (where they are shirtless, and Goh is holding a cigarette).
It includes a cardboard insert to fill the empty space left because this box ONLY comes with vol. 4, (you have to buy the first 3 separately). There are two nice pictures on the cardboard insert that I ended up cutting out and hanging up with my manga postcard collection because I liked them. So that was an unexpected bonus.
All in all I don't regret purchasing this set.

don't rate low just for the box.
even if you do pay a bit extra to have it, it is totally worth it to have a case for the set in my opinion. (yes, it is just the one volume in included with the box - the price is an indication of that.)

i feel that the story was engaging, highly entertaining and sexy. and the art is pretty, clean, and consistently wonderful.
my roommate, though this is not one of *her* favorites, still wouldn't rate this any lower than a 3. as to the other review... come on, a 1?? that's low balling it. there are some truly horrible yaoi manga out there that really earn a one star.

We were left hanging at the end of volume three, but Yellow is back in business in its fourth and final volume.

Volume four boasts all of the standard Yellow fare: The obligatory Taki shirt ripping scene (courtesy of Mizuki and a rifle), the obligatory Taki getting the snot beat out of him and then bound scene (courtesy of Katsuro and Mizuki), Goh molesting Taki in public numerous times and getting punched for his efforts, women (and now a few men!) throwing themselves at Taki who unfortunately has to turn them all down now lest Goh start crying, and no less than three steamy Goh/Taki love scenes (one involving previously mentioned bindings, even).

The gist of volume four is difficult to sum up without giving away too much. Basically, Taki has gone off with Katsuro and Mizuki to protect Goh from them. Goh, of course works tirelessly to get him back. Nothing that happens is particularly surprising. All the pieces fall nicely into place to get our boys back together and safe from danger, though I have to say Goh's daring seduction of Taki as he was imprisioned at the mercy of his captors was very refreshingly like him. "If you're going down, so am I," seemed to be the mantra of our darker haired hero, and he pulled it off with typical Goh bravado.

My complaints with volume four are few. I'm a little diappointed that Taki's "dark secret" for which he has felt insurmountable regret over for the past six years is neatly taken away so he can live his guilt-free life with Goh happily ever after at the end. I think this aspect of his past was something that gave his generally chilly emotional state some depth. I'm also disappointed that the revelations about why Tsunuga's family was targetted are stated and then dropped at the very end of the book. We get to go off and witness Taki and Goh's honeymoon together, which is nice and all (very nice, in fact), but there were some loose ends that Tateno-sama failed to tie up for us. Also, we almost got away without having to read through the sort of lame green/red/yellow warning lights explanation, but there it was at the end; sorry folks.

I'd have to say that volume three had all the emotioal power in the series, though if you've gotten this far in the series, finishing it is obligatory (and very satisfactory). You don't however need to pay the extra $4-7 for the artbox release of volume four, which this item is (the standard release is a separate Amazon item, go find it). I got it because I love this series, and the quality of the cardboard is on level with a good anime DVD artbox. It features the cover art from volume one's dust jacket and very conveniently has thumb cutouts in the middle so you can actually pull the volumes out of it.

In all, volume four of Yellow puts a very nice end to a surprisingly good Yaoi series. It didn't run on too long (I'm looking at you, Level C!), it didn't take forever to get released (I'm looking at you, Kizuna!) and it wrapped most things up very neatly (Unlike you, Finder Series!). I had expected this series to be a lame rip-off of FAKE, which volume one made it seem like with its never resolving barely tension between Taki and Goh, but it came together beautifully and in some ways exceeded the series that it has come to be compared to the most. I look forward to future releases from Makoto Tateno, and pray for a day when a Yellow anime is made and brought to our shores.

I have no idea what people like about this book. There must be something about seeing Dee and Ryo in bishie form that grabs your interest for the first book but once you look past that and at the actual art you'll notice this book aint all its cracked up to be.

Goh is definitely gay - it's in his DNA. Taki woke up one morning and thought `I am decidedly straight'. The first two books have your generic get backers/ legal drug/ jack of all trades half made up storyline.

The third book picks up when they start going into the characters pasts and we get left with that ever so enticing cliff hanger. It makes you believe the finale will be a well thought out and well illustrated book. Unfortunately it comes across like something that was improvised frame by frame. The way it was executed was nonsensical and the art was as poor as all three books put together. It's not hard to compare this series to Sanami Matoh's `Fake' as the endings are almost identical. It doesn't even hold a candle, let alone a matchstick to Fake.

As usual I was fooled by the pretty cover art and overly embellished DMP synopsis/blurb. If you haven't read Fake I suggest you purchase that instead of this.

I bought this item before it included a description on the page, assuming that a box set would include more than one book. Much to my disappointment, I found that this wasn't the case. I am now the proud owner of volume 4 of Yellow and a cardboard box. Incidentally, that cardboard box cost me $5.50. I strongly recommend Yellow, but save yourself a bunch of money and buy the regular volumes. (Unless, of course, you really want to spend an extra $5.50 on a bit of cardboard.)
