I can't really say anything that others before didn't say... I've just finished reading this manga and it touched me in such a way that I can't even put my feelings into words.
Incest is a tough, controversial topic, and I'm really glad about how this mangaka showed it. The characters, their feelings, their choices, the situations they find themselves in, are cruelly realistic and developed in an excellent way. Though I can't say I support incest, I must admit I found myself understanding the characters, because the way the mangaka developed this story is so deep and heartbreaking that you can't be human if you don't feel touched or moved even a little.
Like some others have said before me, don't discard this manga before reading it because of its theme... you may not approve of incest, but you'll have the chance of reading a wonderful story, a masterpiece if you ask me. An excellent work done by this mangaka that will stay in my heart forever.
Many other have taken the time to comment on this, and although I have a lot that mirrors what others have said, I think it's only appropriate that I comment on a manga that touched me.
In regards to the overlaying issue that most readers have with this manga, I'm thoroughly ashamed if any of them have ever read a story with violence, sexual themes, fanservice, or alcohol/substance abuse. I am definitely not advocating incest, but rating a story on the merits of that premise alone is shameful.
I would like to implore any future readers to have an open mind when any form of story dives into a controversial topic. Please base your opinion on the merits of the work rather than the preconceived notions that you or others might have.
I felt very moved by the story that the mangaka presented to us. It wasn't really distasteful; it was more like it was being realistic. The difficulties that the brother and sister experienced with their own feelings and the feelings around them were very well conveyed. As an earlier commenter had felt, I too feel that this is a story that shall stay with me forever.
one of my favorites
even though this may not suit everyone's taste (incest themed), i thought this was one of my most favorite mangas. I agree with a lot of people that i don't support incest in real life, but i picture most incest themed mangas as if your crush/love is unfortunetely your relative -_-'. Great story, great characters, awesome read . I'd recommend it.
ooookay..... this one creeped me out a lot because first of all she's way too young! plus she doesnt look good together with that guy,.. i really wish that they made him look better, he looks like a dad.. this is just my opinion of course

well maybe you dont like brother/sister relationship but because of this you cant give 1/10 whatever
A very unique manga, very subtle in the way it handles a controversial issue. I absolutely love the way the mangaka doesn't gloss things over or take the easy way out -- the brother's agony and shame and stifled desire aren't romanticized.
I frankly don't understand why people are so freaked out and sickened by the incest factor. I mean, Jesus, we read manga about murders and rapes, don't we? So how come a manga about consensual incest is somehow worse? I don't get it. To condemn a manga just because of its theme is foolish. Instead, a manga should only be condemned for poor quality -- and neither the art nor the writing in this manga deserves criticism.
Well, my only complaint is that the ending came a little too quickly; I would've liked to see how our main couple resolved the issues they'd face in the future.
Then again, that's only a sign of how deeply involved I became with the characters, and how much I came to care for them.
The brother's characterization in particular is superb. I don't think I've ever seen an anti-hero so completely explored. Wow. I feel like I can understand what he's going through, even when I'm being disturbed by his actions and emotions.
Just give this manga a chance. Don't knock it just because of the theme, okay?
At first I was disgusted being the main plot the romance between siblings with huge age gap but the story develops pretty good and to be honest, they don't show you any weird or perverted stuff. Still, it's not a manga that I would recommend to anyone with high moral values. The design for the faces of characters is very nice but the art for the rest: body and clothing, and environment is very poor (still the mangata drawings are way better than anything I can draw!!).
A twenty eight year old guy falls in love with his teenage sister ? Sorry but that`s gross and simply not right. This manga implies it`s right to have sex with your 12 years younger sister, the first manga I wanted to vomit when I finished it
This manga tackles the taboo subject of incest (brother/sister) in a serious, realistic way. It doesn't pull its blows and as such it might not be for everyone. But if you can get past the idea itself, then I urge you to give this amazing work a try. With a rather short 5 volumes it can be read in a couple of days, but will stay with you for a long time. Like other posters, I too was a bit revolted at first (I downloaded it not knowing what it was about). But I kept on reading and was rewarded with one of the most touching endings ever. Without spoiling this for you, just know that the characters face a horribly tough situation, and they make accordingly tough choices. No matter what you think about the whole thing, by the end of this tale you'll probably find yourself desperately hoping for Koshiro and Nanoka to choose... well, exactly what you'll want them to choose is up to you. I'll just say that I never expected to feel this way about this particular subject, or to be so moved by a fictional tale of characters dealing with it. Definitely one of my favorite mangas ever. Top marks for it.
should have at least made the brother better looking, he does NOT look good next to his sis
