Description

Yi-hyeok and Inseo have been friends for their entire lives. It’s something they take for granted. Just like the sky is blue and water is wet, the two of them are lifelong buddies. Or, well, that’s what they think right up until the moment Inseo kisses Yi-hyeok as a joke that turns into something more, sparking a whole new scorchingly hot relationship between them. It might be pretty funny, really steamy, and a little strange...but they’re still friends. Right? …Right?!

Stranger Than Friends - Baka-Updates Manga (8)

main story is great

Rating:9.0 / 10.0

I'm giving this a story a rating of 9 out of 10 because I had a great time reading it and is very well done, but as for the side story I don't really care about it so I didn't read it

Toxic

Rating:1.0 / 10.0

I seriously can't take it anymore everyone relationship looks so toxic in this sh*t so I finally dropped it and make myself happy lol

Oh god I'm so annoyed by that bottom dude keeps saying stop stop stop stop , every 2 f*cking seconds 😩
+ Not just here but in many yaoi, Why everyone getting hard and came so fast back to back ?! Like how uneducated and dumb some authors are...
Just write p*rn with your blow average talent for anything related to a story and stop trying to call yourself an author.
+ Side story is a torture to read, basically a torture p*rn by a freak and romanticized and I'm so disgusted by the author and how they turned it into love + those two mf of friends ignore that poor guy screaming for help, dude basically shaking by fear and ask for help .... f*ck this author.

In the end, just don't waste your time reading this dumb sh*t.

Can't believe I spent money on this one

Rating:4.0 / 10.0

The main story was ok. The first chapters were good smut and made me hope for a good friends-to-lovers story, but it just doesn't progress for a while. Then there's the weird

Spoiler (mouse over to view)

"I can't be with you because I love you too much and in a too weird and intense way"

trope that came out of nowhere and that I personally hate. There are some consent issues too in the main story, but not nearly as revolting as what is in the side story.

The initial side story with Tak and Sanho was bad, rapey, and pointless. Right now new side story chapters are coming out and they are even worse.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)

Tak just fully forces Sanho to come home and rapes him every night. Then Tak just "doesn't understand" Sanho. Plus Inseo & Yi-hyeok just ignore Sanho???

Well, I'm disgusted now and it kinda ruined the whole thing for me. Lesson learned though: I'm dropping this and never reading anything from this author ever again.

p*rn with a bit of plot?

by whitelotusflower
November 19th, 2023, 6:01am

Rating:7.0 / 10.0

First part? Straight up p*rn, was considering just dropping it, but was trying to give it one more chance. Second half was pretty alright. Not a single perfect character in there tho. Also I felt like there should be more drama with the boss, like idk😕 Push Inseo off the roof? Maybe a little revenge of boss's partner? Like maybe idk shoot yihyeok?? Was missing a bigger villain in there, but maybe all of the characters were the villains all along? Trying to find self happiness, but destroying others (and themselves) all this time...

I can't manage to root for them

Rating:5.0 / 10.0

As a reader I see so many problematic behaviours that I can't get myself to root for them. You know it's a bad romance story when you want the couple to split up and lead their own lives.
[edit after side stories] Well it gets worse. All tops are toxic and bottoms are stupid spineless doormats. The only extra side story I would love to read is when everyone gets to go in individual therapy.

i actually quite enjoy the side stories. After reading it you'll see that Sanho did like Tak.

Taking the hint from Sagold’s other manhwa and dropping this ASAP

by golisopod
June 11th, 2023, 10:08am

Rating:1.0 / 10.0

Sagold’s Your Wish Is My Command just “ended” (AKA Sagold just marked one of the chapters as the end when it absolutely was not with so many plot points still active and a major relationship issue still ongoing and unacknowledged), and I have regretted spending 69 chapters’ worth of money for three years on this manhwa so, SO much.

The story has already been getting confusing with Inseo’s sudden personality change and their weird toxic relationship, so I’m dropping this series RIGHT now.

Rating:3.0 / 10.0

The series seemed to be great at the beginning, but typical toxic tendencies were immediately visible, just like the whole Your Wish Is My Command series... Here especially in that pointless side story...
And obviously part related to that asshole boss...I'm disappointed...

Main and Side Story Issue

by bobaja
September 28th, 2022, 12:55pm

Rating:1.0 / 10.0

The whole comic shares a bit consent issue. Repeated ignoring of 'no's specifically by the bottoms. Bit weird to me that people saw it in the side story with Tak and Sanho but missed the same exact trend of it in the main. Like, Yi-hyeok had times where he wanted fewer rounds and asked Inseo to stop -- also times where he didn't want to be touched at all, yet Inseo pushed on regardless.

If you appreciate consent, dodge this one.

Main Story is great, side story is a 👎

Rating:N/A

Inseo and Yi-hyeok are everything!! Such awesome storyline, art, and development of it all. I'm anxiously awaiting season 2. In the meantime just completely avoid the side story altogether.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)

I had no interest in seeing Tak and Sanho as a couple, not even in the slightest. It doesn't even seem a little bit consensual, it seems miserable and sad. If there had to be a side story with Sanho, it should've been about himself. Why he's (kind of) a loser lol, why he copied Inseo's piercings, why he follows Y&I so much. Why he always wants to go out drinking. (And not have that tied to Tak).

Otherwise, great main story so far!
