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!

There are people to whom this plot will make sense: Freudians, believers in the concept of soulmates, people who think that men are sex-crazed animals, anyone willing to overlook gaping flaws in logic. Everyone else will be bewildered by how our 17-year-old MC, after mysteriously (it's never explained how it happens) going back in time to when his father was fourteen, decides after two weeks - yep, two weeks - that he's so madly in love with his father that he needs to introduce said father to the pleasures of male flesh. While giving his father a blow job, our MC takes the time to muse about how the ejaculate 'might be himself' - it isn't, which is sad because that particular twist would have saved us from the rest of the story, which consists mainly of the dumbass being angsty.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate incest plots. Flowers of Evil and Koi Kaze are two examples of incest done well - stories in which the characters build up or start out with a believable emotional bond and sex occurs only after much consideration. Father-fucking after two weeks is the stuff of comedy, not the serious drama that this story attempts to be.

...but not as good as you may think after seeing the high rating. For a smutty yaoi title it's interesting, pretty serious and NOT bad. But life changing? Come on! The son went back in time just to f*** his father (Was there another reason? Will it ever be explained why the time travel happend in the first place?) They felt in love pretty fast and then he returned so the story now revolves around the forbiden feelings both have for each other. It's a story about forbidden love with some fantasy elements thrown in. Not more and not less (I have to mention that I never really liked Ike Reibuns love scenes. Where all the body fluids come from? I have never seen something like that in real life. Should it be erotic? No man has so much sweat or sperm or saliva or whatever - thank god!).

the idea of a guy fall in love and has sex with his biological father creeps me out before I read this series. Fortunately I read this one without reading any summary or warning, because if I did, I wouldnt have read it (Time Travel. Incest. Definitely a big lame no, right?) But then I'm glad I read it, because this story is so... tragically beautiful. Now I dare to say, if somehow they're not biologically related (as some ppl might hope) then this story would lose its essence.

Gosh, Konomi is a real FILF xDD

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

It was twisted. I mean it. But still I was totally into it that I couldn't stop to read until the very end. If you don't mind or like forbidden love theme you'll definitely love this one.
Also I found two extra chapters: first one - translated to english "extra" and the next one - 8 pages with really hot sex, but japanese RAWs only. I hope somebody will translate this cause there's something important about Ashizuka (or at least I think so).

I actually went into reading this manga without any prior knowledge or background information, so I had no idea what I was getting into. As I realized this was a yaoi incest manga I was pretty shocked but just silently accepted it and continued on reading. Till the end I was wishing they were not actually blood related and that he was a step dad. But no. This is a drama and not just your typical cookie cutter yaoi. This was actually an amazing read but I suppose it's more fitting for older yaoi readers, not old in age but rather in experience of reading yaoi. I tend to stay away from drama because whenever I read I get really emotional (this series made me shed several tears).However I loved the mangaka for keeping it as real as possible as far as the characters' personal and inner conflicts. You really have to keep your mind open but the characters have no problem convincing you to forget your morals.

Definitely different, but give it a try.

Reading all the other reviews, I'm a bit confused as to what people are reading.
For me, this was a beautiful story that had a good pace throughout the two volumes.

For the plot, time travelling is a bit of a stretch in a drama and incest based BL, especially as the catalyst. However, this opened up to the father and son relationship. It makes the incest completely logical. I'm not a fan of incest (I didn't see the incest tag when I read this), I don't feel disgusted with this pairing at all. The emotions are 90% convincing. The 10% missing is because I don't see how you can have sex with a 15year old without internal struggle (ignoring the incest of course).
The emotions in this is just overwhelming. This takes incest to a whole different level (in a good way)

The art:
Ignore the horrible cover. The content is completely different. Every cover art I've seen has been gross. Like some rape scene. WHICH is so not true.
The inside however, was pretty good. I wouldn't say wonderful or anything because there aren't any reason to describe the art as that. The art is just, suitable. A bit sketchy at times, but fine. The expressions are the best parts. There's a lot of detail on the mouth, which is the most critical point of an expression.
The H scenes are a bit lacking but that is not the point of this manga. In fact, I wouldn't have minded if they skipped it.

A reviewer mentioned they were quite tired after reading it.
Yes. I agree, but in a good way. This manga stimulates a lot of brainwork. It's tiring in the sense that normally you don't go through this many emotions in 30mins.

Please read it. It's wonderful.

I usually only comment on complete manga. But this one really got me! I can't wait for the next chapter. The plot is so different, so sad, so compelling. I'm really torn between emotionally justifiable and morally wrong. It's awesome!

Really wasn't bad. Besides biology, the main morality issue standing in the way of incest is the whole question of whether the "caretaker" is taking advantage, or maybe even raised the kid into the whole relationship, the matter of consent is just too messy. But ike reibun found a loophole for that and I applaud her for ingenuity, this definity isnt a typical run of the mill incest. However that being said, I would say beyond that its not amazing. Not much else happens thats beyond your average bl manga. There are also a few things in the manga that could have been more tidy, like Ryou's motivations that drew him to his young father in the firstplace, knowing that it was really his father? Its kind of gross if you think that maybe he was that desperate for his love and attention he would do anything.....

This isn't my first incest manga, nor will it probably be my last. Incest isn't something I go out of my way to read, but I don't mind it, especially when it's done well. Here, it was only so-so for me.

The development of the relationship has some good points and some bad. I think the mangaka needed to show the thoughts and psychological states of the characters a little bit more while they were developing the relationship in order for the romantic feelings to really be felt by the audience. Instead, if comes across a little bit like they got together just because they were only around each other at the time, which doesn't happen without actual attraction between two people. The attraction was missing for me.

On top of that, the supernatural element (the time travel), while I appreciate it as an inventive way for the two to meet and fall in love, wasn't really explained well. It kind of just happened... no real explanation why it would happen at those times, what caused it, or anything else. Of course, it's a supernatural element so things like that don't need to be explained, right? Sure, if you want to go with contrived plots. When the time travel is the only thing that makes your story happen, the only supernatural element in your story and it only happens at points it needs to for story telling, then it's way too contrived for my appreciation.

Also, the ending felt a little rushed and unresolved. Basically, the whole plot could've worked better toward a clear end that felt satisfying, and while it made a valiant effort to do so, it fell short.

So why did I rate it so high? Well, it's cute enough as a story. The art is decent. There is some proper character development (though I'm kind of strict on character development in a story and it wasn't satisfactory for me). And overall you can do worse if you're looking for an incest story (much worse -_-;; ). My overall thoughts are you can read this one if bored or if you're looking for something with these kind of elements in it (father/son relationship with time travel), but don't expect a masterpiece.
