Touko Kawai (Cut, Bondz, Just Around the Corner) I do not read her work anymore but she was one of my first yaoi mangaka, so her work is special to me. I think her artwork is very beautiful although sometimes the limbs of her figures look stiff. But she has very elegant fingers and very nice eyes. I also like her stories a lot too. Her seme and uke are usually on the same level and although there is not great tragedy involved, sometimes the characters have painful pasts. Cut is a beautiful story about two boys who have abused pasts, one who is still involved in self-abuse.

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.

A great manga depicting the lives of 2 teenage guys and how they deal with issues in life. Yaoi, suicidal tendencies and some incest themes, this won't be for everyone. But to those willing to give it the chance, it's worth the read.

love the story but did not like the fact that there are pit in the cover and inside the book.

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.

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.
