Description
Volume 1 (Spring): Kashiwagi Yukiya lives with his son Yuuto in the home he inherited from his grandparents, a mansion surrounded by flowering trees. Takanashi lives there too, a holdover from the mansion's days as a rooming house for students. Long since graduated, he stays on because it's convenient to where he works. And because he's in love with Yukiya-san, whose secrets he's determined to get to the bottom of.

Volume 2 (Autumn): Their three lives still intricately intertwined, Takanashi is stunned by a revelation from Yuuto, and gains a clearer understanding of Yukiya-san's past. But as Yukiya-san grows more distant, nothing is clear about the future.

Kinoshita Keiko never fails in bringing realistic characters. I really appreciate her way of showing people. Nobody's perfect, we all make mistakes, yet we all want to be loved without the need to pretend that we're someone else. And Yukiya, even though I saw many people hating on him, is the best example of that. He knows perfectly well his way of life is bad and that he's hurting Takanashi but there are things in his head that stop him from escaping that loop. I don't think I ever saw in BL manga such a good way of describing anxiety, low self-esteem problems, and general depression. True, Yukiya isn't a very likable character. Reading this story, one can get really angry with his choices or pity him, but hey, that's what makes him "human". He thinks he doesn't deserve love, so he acts on it. Takahashi knows it, that's the only reason why he somehow puts up with it. And once they finally communicate with each other, they find their happiness.

Lol, what is this,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a love polygon consisting entirely of one-sided love?!

That's gotta be a first for me lol

About the manga itself, I have to say that I'm not particularly fond of any of the characters. They're either too stubborn, or selfish, or oblivious, or lovelorn, or any combination of the above. And yet, even when tasked with all such difficult material, the author somehow still managed to make it work using her amazing mastery and expertise. She so skilfully spun everything into place to make for a smooth, elegant piece of fabric interwoven with meaningful dialogues and relatable character development. And as usual, the gorgeous art tied it all together into a complete package that only this mangaka is capable of.
