Description
Official English release on Futekiya

Mitsui’s life has been thoroughly torn apart. And just when he is confronted with the reality that is his life, he runs into his old classmate and former friend Sone. Although years have gone by since their schooldays together, neither one has been able to forget their past: Mitsui rejected Sone for being gay.

Now that they have reconnected, Mitsui’s only interest is to shame and continue to reject Sone for his identity. But is Mitsui merely projecting…? With complex emotions and a twisted past, Mitsui may also be a victim of his circumstances.

Confused of my own feelings

I don't know if I like this manga or not. There was so much angst and cruelty that I really don't know how Sone could stand it. All in all, it's not like he totally couldn't leave, I guess he must have loved Mitsui all this time.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
We got a good close up of Mitsui character and past, so I can understand his actions out of denial. Not like I could experience it, but It's not that uncommon to not accept your own sexual desires, especially when you grow up in up-tight and "oh-so-proper" environment, so I think his frustration, angst and helplessness were portrayed very well. Especially the scene where he asks himself if he was always such a cruel person. But I want more of Sone's feelings. I get it that mangaka made it as if we only see what Mitsui sees, so if Sone doesn't speak about his feelings, we wouldn't know, but it leaves me with so much unresolved feelings. I wish she showed more of him, since I would like to know what kind of man could whistain this kind of abuse and still keep on loving Mitsui. He doesn't seem as the carefree type, on the contrary, I guess he understands how hurt Mitsui really is so he tries his best. That's why the fight scene is just right in time. He couldn't stand it, yet when he cooled of he came back. Sone so mature~

Well, after writing all of this I guess I really like this manga after all. It's just the topic it's dealing with is so realistic and presented in a way that you just feel so sorry for both of them, that it's a bit confusing. Mangaka really thought it through.

Despite the abuse, they didn't just "forget it and happily moved on". The scene with Mitsuki kissing Sones scars really made me tear up.
All the scenes needed to forgive Mistui were there and they gave a huge impact. Definitely recommended, just not for the ones with weak heart.

Good stuff

Oh wow that surely was.. unexpected. In a positive way. This is such an unpleasant story and the characters are depressingly broken, but the execution is so impressively mature and persuasive with its exploration of the human mind and how its psychology works. It went beyond the common shallow approach, for which I have to give a round of applause. And the sketchy art style is a perfect match; it fits the moody atmosphere like a glove and brings out all the best that the story has to offer. Very good stuff indeed.
