If you're someone who likes romance but is sick of the typical, super-passionate 'ooh, we're meant to be!' shojo, FAKE is a great pick. Not only is the romantic extremely realistic, the manga focuses on other aspects, such as Ryo and Dee's jobs and childhoods that make their characters real and believable. Even the minor characters like Carroll and Bicky get their fair share of spotlight, making them go from 'eh, those guys just add variety to the cast' to real, lovable characters. It's a great series for someone who enjoys REAL mystery, drama and a very realistic romance.

I have read a lot of shounen-ai/yaoi things and this is one of my favorite series, maybe my favorite. It's funny, the situation Dee and Ryo get into are priceless, and you cannot help but love the Dee & Ryo pairing....I mean come on.

Fake is a really good series, and I love the characters. Although the art could be better, I really like it... The plot is nice 'n all, but I feel that Dee and Ryo get too close, too soon, even though it was kind of a one-sided love at first. I originally picked up Fake because I heard it had MxM, and sure, I was pleased as any fangirl when there were scenes to squeel over in the first book, but now it just seems like it was to please the fans only... (Although I like the plot alot.) I love Fake, though, and all it's characters. It's fun to read... Even though I only read the first two books and scanned through the last (Whew!!) it's a nice series. Of course, alot of you guys would be avoiding it like it was going to take your life away. It won't. Sure, scare you half to death, but not kill you. You should buy it if you like shounen-ai and yaoi, unless you want to avoid yaoi, which happens near the end of the book, then may I suggest Gravitation...? I haven't read all the books for that either, but it's pretty safe.

Fake, as a story of two men who are...well...attracted to each other, grabbed my attention right away, but as I read on I became entwined in the storyline. There's Romance, there's Slapstick comedy, there's suspense...This manga has it all, you'll instantly fall in love with the characters Ryo, Dee, Bikky, and Carol. By the end of the first book you'll be dying to start on the second. A must read for all manga lovers, and a definite plus to any manga collection.

I first found out about FAKE from an anime magazine. I read a review on it and thought, 'Hmm...That looks fun.' So, I went out and bought it. I read the first 5 pages and was hooked. I was helpless to the power of Sanami Matoh. She makes the characters memorable and lovable and simply irresistible. Dee and Ryo are simply too adorable together and their personalities match those of people whom we have all met at some point in our lives. Their love story is so utterly sweet that you'll take the ups and downs of the relationship with them. If this is your first adventure into the world of shonen-ai, this is perfect to start off with. No matter if you are a veteran or a beginner in this genre, you can't go wrong. You'll love it to the end and then love it all over again.

If you like any sort of shonen-ai this is a must have to any collection. One of the greatest mangas I've ever read. You won't want to put it down. I've read it about 13 times. It's great!

This is one of the best mangas i've ever read (so far my favorite). it absoluetly fantastic! Wether you're caught up in the missions, bikky getting in trouble or when Dee and Ryo will kiss next you just won't be able to put it down, and when you finally do you'll pick it up a second and third time!

I've been a fan of the original Japanese version for years, but never thought I'd see it in English. Fortunatly, TokyoPop proved me wrong. The translation is wonderful, and the humor stays perfectly in tact! It's a must buy for any fan of yaoi and shounen ai!

The only yaoi I've read is online which most of it isn't that great. It feels great to read a yaoi that's written by a pro^-^, and best of all it's in english! This story is incredibly sweet and yet with a good edge to it.......I can't wait to read the rest of the series^-^.

I love this. I've never read manga or anything like it, but I was at barnes and nobles for a while so since I know my friends like this kind of thing, I picked something up and it happened to be this. I cant wait for the next one! :D
