Description
From Fujoshi Bitches:
“Tomorrow, I’ll put a curse on my father…”
Right after reuniting with his father, from whom he’d been separated when he was a kid, Ryou suddenly traveled back in time 22 years, during the peak of the bubble economy of the Showa era!
There, he met his father, Konomi, who was 3 years younger than he was…!
Living in an unknown environment with the uneasiness of wanting to go back to his own time, Ryou was anxious. But being comforted by the pure-hearted Konomi, his feelings gradually started to change… The first volume of Ike Reibun’s loved original work!

A very unusual story from Ike Rebun...

In a good way, if course. I'm not aware, at least from the one's I have read, of any other story drawn by Ike Reibun with this kind of angle to it. That is, while it does contain a certain amount of smut, there is actually a plot, with some angst thrown in for good measure, that makes me want to continue reading it. The incest angle is taken somewhat seriously (as seriously as you can get for a yaoi anyway, of course), which is a nice change, because I started this half expecting nothing but smut, but was pleasantly suprised to find out that it's not.

Long story short, if you like yaoi with plot and plenty of angst, read it. I certainly thought it was worth the time.

Very unique

The premise is good. I honestly thought it would be another run-of-the-mill type of yaoi, and... yeah, in some ways it is, but I just couldn't help but develop a certain fondness for the characters. I would def. give this a try. In the latest chapters, not only do the characters grow on you, but the plot seems to be getting better.

Edit: Another thing unique about this manga is that it never copped out. Some incest mangas veer into the "not really related by blood" trope, but not this one! They really truly are related, but the twist with this one is the whole time travel thing. Fear not, the time travel aspect takes a back seat to the human drama that unfolds so the manga isn't so much as plot driven but character driven.

I just get this vibe from this manga... it's a GOOD vibe, a unique vibe. The fact that I'm compelled to write about this (& after reading so many other yaoi+shoujo+shounen+josei+slice-of-life, etc) says something about the qualities this manga/story have. It certainly piqued my interest enough to make me remember this one.

Charming

very charming but with a touch of melancholy-my fav cup of tea! From the first chapter you know the main guy will return to the present(lol DUH!) and the father is going to be utterly devastated but you can't helping thinking there might be a good ending. Incest is oh-so-wrong but I cant help falling in love with the father. Who doesn't love a bespectacled cutie? Certainly not mebigrazz

No comments so far? Well, I won't be rating this manga since it's not completely scanlated yet, thus I don't know how it will end but judging from the first 4 chapters I have to say: gotta love this story! biggrin

I generally like Ike Reibun manga, but I find Not Equal especially charming. Hell yeah, I'm a fan of incest-manga, and Not Equal even has time skip/time travel, so I guess I was destined to love it. x'3 The characters are fresh and lovely - though young Daddy is kind of dense and blushing all the time, he's still cute. And it's interesting to see how Son from the Future and Dad of the Past slowly fall in love.^^

Nothing left to say, I'm eagerly waiting for the next chapters!

------
UPDATE 06/12: So, it's finally finished! Wow. I really loved the way the story went on, the fears and doubts about the incestous relationship were were portrayed in a nice and >real< way. I'm happy for them. The last couple of chapters however... it was still nice and emotional but still, I felt like something was slightly off. I can't explain it well. sad
Nevertheless, Not Equal is a truly great piece of work from Ike Reibun and I'm very happy I could follow its progress. Highly recommended!
