I'm not a big fan of tragic pasts or anything but I can handle them if they're done well. I don't think this one was done well. Yeah I got sad, but when most of the manga is a flashback I lose interest. The previous chapters didn't even make it seem like the twin was the main character, so suddenly switching to a flash back that was not only from his POV but his dead brother's as well? Ugh. Lengthy flashback aside, it was written well and had good art. I believed the love between the brothers when I don't normally believe authors' portrayals of twins (as a twin myself it's annoying to see them done wrong). I liked who I still believe the main character is (the 4-eyes) and believed his motivation to know more about the twin even though it was almost glossed over. I hope the mangaka continues and improves the story. I'd give it a 7 for what can potentially be a great manga, but as it is now it only gets a 5.

I can't even
This story is so beautifully painful. It gave me the shivers thro chapters 7-9. I really hope the mangaka will continue it, or this would be just too sad for it to end in the middle of a scene.
(Does anyone know if there are only 9 chapters of it or if there are any more chapters that are just unscanlated?)
Freaken love this
This manga is tragically beautiful. The pain and suffering of Kei and Roku is so real, so much ANGST! I find Kei's character to be sooo uke-sexy! I got to say he's my fav character. I'm so impatient to see what's going to happen and what really happened. I feel like there is a lot more to the story. I just hope the author doesn't drop this manga or I'll cry tears of blood.
This is hauntingly disturbing, painfully beautiful, severely unhealthy, on the verge of insanity. I absolutely adore it. Let me tell you something, I'm reading this in the most beautiful place on earth and I'm feeling so anxious, so troubled, nearly suffocating, you wouldn't believe.
In the beginning it all sounded quite ordinary: nerdy, sweet, ordinary-looking kid meets mysterious school hottie on the rooftop with whom he shares an apparent sense of loss: no heart-pounding. But ever since Kei broke into the picture, I've been in a complete roller coaster. As a reader, a spectator, I don't think I've ever shared these many emotions with the characters. I mean, without spoiling anything, I went so far as to feel disgust for Kei, out of empathy with Roku. And yet, I feel such a myriad of feelings for Kei sometimes I can hardly stand Roku for his "obliviousness", or something...
It's been quite a journey. Future readers, try to bear the very beginning - I know it seems to drag - because it is so worthy. I can't wait for further updates.

The whole story was beautiful. It's rare to see such amazing plot in yaoi. This is the 1st time i want the main character in a manga to die, cuz i think only death can bring him peace, the pain is just too much for him to endure. This is definitely one of my favarite yaoi<3
Sex and angst work well
I have a thing for mentally tormented ukes. They keep on whoring themselves, acting all slutty and cheap, to fill a hole in their heart. Oh, the sweet angst!
I read it all in one go and it managed to tear me up. The dialogue, the panles, the expression are all done remarkably well! It's like a high shcool version of Saezuru, with twins.
This manga makes me feel terribly sad but I can't stop reading it. It shows that wanting something you can't have is heartbreaking and being rejected does hurt. A lot. Hopefully, he'll be able to move on as the story progresses and find some joy in life. As for me--it's time to read a happy story.

It's so dark
Usually I can't stand this kind of dark and twister storyline but I can't stop reading now. I have to know how it will end! I just hope that someone will find some kind of happiness. If not.. well then I'm screwed.
too much drama on a heavy theme
i find this story really dark and sad. in my country, commiting suicide is not something that happens often and i can hardly see any valid reason to want to end your life voluntarily. there are people out there that have so many problems but still hang in there and do their best to cope with them, there are people with fatal diseases that are happy to live just one more day and i can't say that i can sympathise with these characters that waste their lifes away because they are broken-hearted and don't appreciate their own lifes. but the story seems realistic enough and the art is nice. i'll keep reading this to see how this story will progress and hope for a happy ending(even though that's unlikely to happen)
Depressing and beautiful.
This series didn't catch my attention at first. High-school. An awkward glasses geek from the photography class. A cool and mysterious guy on the rooftop with a dark past.Seems like an overused plot that I want to skip (School-themed yaoi isn't my fave to begin with) . But since I subscribe to CRAFT for Takarai Rihito's series, I accidentally keep reading this series.
And whoa, the "overused"ness is only a door to something totally pitch black and depressing. If you're a masochist, read this because it'll hurt you A LOT. The intense expression, the serene movement, their hurtful dialogue - I also follow Rutile to read Acid Town, and IMO Sora wo Daite Oyasumi is more depressing than Acid Town. Mainly because Acid Town shows hopes, way out and a will to survive. Sora wo Daite doesn't.
Personally I really don't see how this manga could end with a happy ending, neither with bad ending, because the worst has happened already (or so I think so far, who knows there'll be a twist). I'm afraid this is one of those series whose ending leaves you hanging, empty, thirsty, but strangely adore how beautiful it was.
