I read these 2 volumes without reading the summary or what specific genre it was. I was like, "I'm in the mood for surprise, so surprise me!" And I REALLY got surprised. I guess I get for what I asked.
Well, other people's reviews pretty much hit the spot. Time-traveling and incest. Sure sounds lame. However, Ike Reibun-sensei really made it into a bitter-sweet heart-twisting story. It sure surprise how much depth to the character's thoughts as we read from their point of view.
Someone mentioned about the watermark. Truth be told, it didn't annoy me and I didn't quite notice it as I was reading it. It was placed well where it won't get in the way when reading.
I'm surprised how well the story was well-written and the art was spectacular as usual. I recommend this manga to yaoi fans. Even if you don't like incest, I'll tell you that it doesn't feel like it at all. Just 2 character's deep emotions and thoughts that would touch your heart instead.

I started reading this without knowing anything about it at all (which I highly recommend by the way!) and was so shocked by all the twists and things that happened, it was awesome! The story is so incredibly captivating! I loved the whole tragedy in this manga, you can really feel with the characters, all their pain and worries... it almost made me cry at the end of the first volume... I also thought the smut scenes were pretty sexy as well! I also highly recommend reading it a second time eventually because it's just so much clearer why his father reacts this way in the beginning of the story and all that! Things that you don't pay attention to the first time through! For me personally, this is definitely one of those big yaoi titles that had an impact when I read them, the kind I'll always love and never forget about.
Only negative points I can find lie with the scanlation, image quality too low, too small fonts, some weird spelling mistakes, and their overly huge watermark on every page ug! I bet the manga would be even more enjoyable with those things fixed so I would definitely buy an official release of this work!
Recommended to anyone (except people who have a huge huge problem with incest, but even then I'd still recommend it because it's just too good to pass up!)

A True Gem
Reading all the other reviews, I'm a bit confused as to what people are reading. For me, this was a beautiful story that had a good pace throughout the two volumes.
For the plot, time travelling is a bit of a stretch in a drama and incest based BL, especially as the catalyst. However, this opened up to the father and son relationship. It makes the incest completely logical. I'm not a fan of incest (I didn't see the incest tag when I read this), I don't feel disgusted with this pairing at all. The emotions are 90% convincing. The 10% missing is because I don't see how you can have sex with a 15year old without internal struggle (ignoring the incest of course). The emotions in this is just overwhelming. This takes incest to a whole different level (in a good way)
The art: Ignore the horrible cover. The content is completely different. Every cover art I've seen has been gross. Like some rape scene. WHICH is so not true. The inside however, was pretty good. I wouldn't say wonderful or anything because there aren't any reason to describe the art as that. The art is just, suitable. A bit sketchy at times, but fine. The expressions are the best parts. There's a lot of detail on the mouth, which is the most critical point of an expression. The H scenes are a bit lacking but that is not the point of this manga. In fact, I wouldn't have minded if they skipped it.
A reviewer mentioned they were quite tired after reading it. Yes. I agree, but in a good way. This manga stimulates a lot of brainwork. It's tiring in the sense that normally you don't go through this many emotions in 30mins.
Please read it. It's wonderful.
When I read the comments I wasn't convinced about reading this, but, I mean, it's IKE Reibun...so I read it anyway. It was a really good story, I don't have issues with incest, maybe because i'm too open minded (my friends tell me if i was more so, my brain would spill out), anyway, really good story, dealt well with the issues at hand. I would have given it a 10, but it was a bit too heavy at times, I know the issue deserves it, but when I finished this I was quite tired, so i'm giving it a 9.
As much as i hate incest, i would be lying if i said this manga was bad. It had such a nostalgic atmosphere and it's so much more complicated and meaningfull then most of those incest genre's. The art is fantastic, and at times the storyline was confusing, but it kept me hooked because i loved how strong their love was for eachother.
Hm... It was definitely a different take on incest! I give it 6, because of it being so different, because other than that, it's pretty a average yaoi with the uke being a complete wuss and seme burniiiiing with oh so much desire. Actually, the characters seem pretty awkward. Nonetheless, it was pretty entertaining, if stupid.

kinda nice couple here ^_^ ohoho
Those who are perverted and who likes stories about gentle and loving couples, would definitely like it, yay ^_^! I have to say, that the way in which the main characters found themselves in rather *complicated* circumstances and the plot itself were very refreshing and exciting. It's the kind of manga that I would re-read.
Wonderful if the premise doesn't bother you.
The art and story are amazing, as with all of Ike's works, but it did take me a little bit to get over the incest aspect of the story. You really feel for Konomi throughout, and so many times I wanted to just hug the guy. Even in the present scenes he looks like a little teddy bear, while Ryou looks like the older of the pair.
There was one thing that helped me get over this one, and it might help others too-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The son is the seme in the pair, so even though incest is "wrong", it doesn't come off as abusive.
Also, I have to chime in that people reading this for the first time need to hang in there. The translation is terrible. You can tell it's twice removed from the original Japanese script, and it's like the editor took a vacation in some chapters. Buy a copy and translate it on your own if you understand Japanese.

This series plot takes you by surprise. Its not a cliche and the characters have deep thoughts and feelings. The series was just amazing and not a two minute light hearted read but it had it's moments. If your not Sure about this manga i guarantee after reading two chapters you'll be hook.
