Yeah, it's one of the first "shounen-ai" series to be published in the US. It was first published here under Viz's magazine "Pulp." After Viz stopped publishing, they made it into volumes, and then came the great "flop v. unflopped" debate and they decided to reissue the series. That sucked, because if you were already collecting it, you were pooched and had to start over. Plus, Viz even said they were going to make the translation "better" than before, which REALLY sucked and instigated hatred from long-time manga collectors.
Otherwise, that mangaka is pretty good. The story was really interesting, even if the art was meh. If you can find it, you should totally read it. It's worth it. ;)
