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...

Not an impossible thing but with sad consequences
I find this a very disturbing series... i felt sympathetic for the characters. And just as I was wondering could this even happened... I found this piece of news http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7182817.stm So... things like this could happened in real life...it is so sad that I don't even know what to say. So I thank the Mangaka for writing this series... it helps me to understand, how these people feel. and I hope they will move on in their lives and feel at ease with comfort.
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 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).
though i did somewhat like this manga, the main character Kasumi is always freaking crying which annoys the heck out of me... its a never ending soap. The artwork is okay, its nothing really special at all. If you just want to pass time because you have nothing else better to do then read this
Soap opera-ish, but still good i guess.
if you like incest (bro/sis), smut, soap opera, or all of the above you will like this one. 8/10 for me. i deducted 2 because i have watched too many daytime soap operas already i don't need another one on my list. smut is so-so.
i just love this. even thought it's incest, it's romantic and sad and full of drama. it's a terrific story to read.
I like incest themes, they make a exicting romance, being a taboo. but this one seems to have a problem, the main heroine is really a whore....yup i just get that idea everytime she does something whore like. don't get me wrong! i have nothing against mature mangas, in fact i prefer them.
very heartwrenching manga, but one that I couldn't help but become addicted to. it's definately worth reading!. My only complaint about it is it's only been scanlated to volume 8!
i love this manga, it makes you hope for the best for them.
Hooray for true love?
One of my favorites series, a little to filled with drama at times tho.
