If only this wasn't so rushed

I actually don't have anything against twisted stories, provided that the pacing and development don't feel like they come out of no where and throw me off. For this particular manga, I do like the idea that the author had in mind, but her execution perhaps wasn't the best possible outcome from the initial brainstorming. And the ending is just too rushed and kinda 'lazy' imo, just to resolve the conflict of a love triangle.

the fact that no love in this story came to fruition is rather a nice change for my experience,

I wish the mangaka had reached that conclusion in a more persuasive way so that the audience could accept it with more ease. I do think that the ratings for this title here in MU are a bit unfair though, it's definitely still above average for the most part.

This a a nice dark story with a lot of twisted emotions. Very nice. Some things are left ambiguous, but that's good too. Overall a good story if you you like the darker side of the human condition.

No fluff, no happiness and twisted fellings

Well, you've been warned ! This is not a happy story, not one page.
And I think that explains the general low rating (and the incest theme as well maybe). But ! A sad story is not necessary a bad story. I can't say I enjoyed it, but I was stuck to it for sure. I was feeling so much pain for the characters, all of them, for not being able to move on and getting trapped in their past. For sure, they made wrong choices, but could they have done otherwise, given the emotions they were facing ? It really left me heart-wrenched, but I don't regret reading it, it was worth it. What I really liked here is that even though they have twisted feelings, they know it and that torture them, even if it can't make them stop.
On the negative side, the story of each character is not enough detailed for my taste. And I Would have prefered a more concise ending.

We don't know if Akira remembers anything that's happened, or if he just still has feelings for Kaoru. Actually, sad for sad, I would have prefered Akira to never remember anything

So, if you are ready for a hopeless, tragic, and twisted but well-writen story, then give it a go !
