This tale of forbidden fruit is ripe with angst and taboo. Nineteen year old college girl Kasumi is traveling in Italy after a painful breakup. In Rome, she meets a handsome Japanese man and, knowing nothing about him, not even his name, she has a one-night stand with him. There should have been no chance of them meeting again, but when Kasumi gets back to Japan, she learns that fate has played a cruel trick! The man she slept with was Yoshiki...her younger brother!! And that's only the start of it...

Intense, long & interesting
I don't usually heed shoujo at all, but out of boredom I decided to check the first chapter of this series to pass some. By the time I got to chapter 4 or so I was completely glued to story. I even pulled out some full nighters, carefully & slowly reading the raws for untranslated chapters, being really interested on what's going to happen next.
Also, while this project is listed as "active" in Shoujo magic there hasn't been a single release in one year. I suppose that the forbidden theme & the huge amount of drama + suffering that's yet to come to the characters doesn't alure the scanlators to bring out a chapter every two weeks.
Since the series really doesn't seem to be completely scanlated any time soon, I'll throw in comments about the ending (from here on the post will be a spoiler, however I don't know how to tag it, si I hope some moderator will properly do so later).
Spoiler (highlight to view)
From volume 9 to the ending the main focus of the series is shifted to their mother's (Yuka) efforts to separate them, the siblings eventually become so feed up with their predicaments that they reveal their relationship to the guests of their omais right in front of the church, trying to break their marriages with Ren & Kyoka, but their mother still won't allow them freedom; the kids secretly agree to meet in Rome to escape from it all. When Kasumi arrives there she can't find Yoshiki, and gets contacted by the police with the message "we need you to verify the identity of a corpse". Kasumi suffers greatly while gathering strength to even see the corpse, sulking in denial... Funerals for Yoshiki are held in Rome and Kasumi breaks up all ties with her mother & every body else, wanting to stay in Rome permanetly.
As some of you my already have guessed, in the aftermath of the service & when everybody is gone, Kasumi was still suffering about this in the place where she first meet with Yoshiki, at which point he shows kissing her, revealing how he used some aquitances to fake his deadly accident, with that said they finally embrace each other enjoying the knowledge that now no one is standing between them, Yoshiki doesn't miss the chance to kindly whisper "I love you". The next scene is a portrait of their marriage, being exhibited as propaganda in a store that sells bridal items.
I know most people reject incest but if people love each other I think they should be together but they shouldn't have kids because of the genetic disorder point of view but adoption is always considered.
I dont think people should disgrace them so quickly because love has no boundries.
Series is very good- bittersweet, drama, and of course love
I avoid incest manga at all costs, so I have no idea what I was thinking when I started this manga. By now I fully regret making that decision - not because Tsumi ni Nureta Futari is bad, but because it's addictive! Yes, everything is exceedingly cliche and hackneyed, but it's well-done cliche. Kasumi is a bit stronger and more independent than your typical shoujo ditz, and she doesn't let herself be used or treated like an object. None of the guys are the smut-rapist stereotype. Kitagawa has a great, creative layout technique, which makes her good at portraying emotion and very good at portraying sex without actually showing it.
Still, 18 volumes of this is just too much. I can't imagine anyone could fill that many pages with fresh material. I'm sure that by the 6th volume or so everything will start to feel old.
That's 6 volumes of good times, though.

i really liked it at first but i think it has way too much drama and it just drags on and on and on. it was so long and repetitive, in fact, that i skipped directly to the last volume. i was, however, satisfied with the happy ending, which i was not suspecting. :)
Romantic over all
This is a good manga, revolving the bittersweet agony of longing for your lover.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Synopsis It is a very romantic story about love, but it is forbidden to them as they are siblings. They were everyday people with the logical train of thought that incest is unacceptable, until fate played them a trick and cheated them into falling in love. We read about how they try to reason their feelings for each other, but keeping in mind that the family bond was a new discovery, their heart and mind could not fully understand that they must not be together. But in these situations love burns you whether you do or whether you do not.
Criticism If it was not for the corny, exaggerated, soap opera melodrama, it would have scored a 9.
Kasumi's intensity is hard to follow emotionally when reading the manga. After a bittersweet ache is sown in your chest, she just keeps on going, pushing it further until it seems like a parody of a soap. I always end up laughing and I can't take it seriously. I wonder if the mangaka wanted it to be a manga version of "Scary Movie", "Epic Movie" etc., because to me it's a comic twist.
OVERALL I love the romance, a lot of drame/plot (at times it is nauseatingly soapy), we understand the characters and the drawing is an 8+.

A very meaningful story...
This story is terribly sentimental, yet irresistibly sexy and very well-drawn! It drives you nuts at times with its unexpected twists and the characters' promiscuity, and yet you are unable to break away and hunger for what happens next. Unlike the highschool-ish chick-flick kind of love story like Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru, Tsumi ni Nureta Futari's love story is deeper, more mature, more sweetly agonizing...
I wouldn't put it as one of my favorite reads but hell, I'm addicted to it!!
A little mixed with this manga...
I really don't know what to say about this manga.
I am NOT against incest, since i believe love comes in many form and should not be labeled.
Pro: Mature art style. Deep love. Drama. Slice of life. Good plotline.
Con: Too soap opera. Killed me so many times withe the drama. Not yet complete scanlate. 80% this manga will never make it to the licensed world since many are against incest (Through many accepts yaoi and hentai since whatever-reason). For angst lovers more than shoujo/happy-ending lovers (Me).
Extra Note: Waiting to see all 18 volumes scanlated.
Rate: I'm a picky person (especially when it comes to manga), so a 6/10 for me. 6/10 may not seem much but coming from me really means it's a worth reading!! (Death Note being 7/10, PoT 7/10, Love Monster 7.5/10, Vampire Knight 8/10, One Piece 9/10, Hikaru no go 10/10).
