Description
It's stuck deep inside me and I can't get it out of my head. Mafuyu's voice is an insane and dangerous weapon.

That day, I started to feel that playing the guitar and playing basketball, both of which I liked very much previously, was becoming boring.

Uenoyama meets Mafuyu who's holding onto a broken guitar. The moment Uenoyama finishes fixing the guitar, Mafuyu becomes completely attached to him. However, hearing Mafuyu's song by chance leaves a deep impression on Uenoyama. An alternative love drawn by Kizu Natsuki!

The problem with this story is that Mafuyu shared such a deep connection with his previous lover, Yuuki. This was emphasized throughout the series and it was even mentioned that they were each other's other half and they completed each other absolutely.

Now, Mafuyu is Ue's first love and it's very apparent that Ue loves him dearly. However, Mafuyu may have said that he loves Ue but he is still healing from his previous traumatic experience. He doesn't look like someone that can move so fast, jumping from one relationship to another. Honestly, it seems like he just wants to persuade himself that he's currently in love so that he can occupy his mind with this and not think about the past. For that reason, it seems to me that he's just using Ue to help him heal and figure out things while at the same time, to him, Ue's existence is not that big and meaningful. When you've found the ultimum, how can you compromise for something less? You just can't. You are just kidding yourself.

This story is breaking my heart for that reason. Because no matter how much I want Ue's love to succeed, I know that he'll only ever be someone's replacement. Even if Mafuyu forgets how he spent a big part of his life with Yuuki, his first love, the strong feelings he felt will always stay there in his heart. And I don't want to read a lovestory about a guy that picked up a broken person and tried hard to become his second-best ideal lover. It's a very "japanese-like" concept and it's not my cup of tea.

I'm at a loss for words... This manga is seriously unbelievably beautiful. I've read it in one go. :')

I feel like a utter idiot because the truth is I avoided it for the longest time as the cover reminded me of Yoru to asa no uta which I seriously hated. But I'm so damn grateful I gave it a chance !!...

Where to start ? Well everything about it is just so freaking awesome...
Every character is lovable, the plot is damn great, everything falls into place so naturally, the art is mind blowing, the emotions are so strong, there's so much feelings in their expressions it just strikes you like BAM ! The relationships between the characters were so realistic, the humor was damn good, and I absolutely love how music played an important role and wasn't just here for show.
Moreover the angst was MAGNIFICENT. I mean I understood something was up from the first page but I didn't expect it to be so well thought out nor so on point. And the kiss was absolutely PERFECT.
Honestly it was just down right AMAZING.

It was kinda funny how everyone seemed gay in it though haha xD it was almost like there were no straight guy to be seen around ! But does it matter ? Naaaaah because ofc we all ship them haha x)

Ahem. Anyway, there's no way I can explain how incredible this one is but just so you know I don't give 10 easily. READ IT NOW !!!
I can't wait for the final volume !! TT^TT

Edit : OMG and I've just realized I already knew this author because she's the one who's made the best Iwakawa djs I've read !! Bless this woman !

This one is a keeper. I really wish the scanlations were faster, but I am pretty sure they're doing their very best.
I can feel the emotions of the characters, and it had left me with a lot of feels.
This mangaka did a lot of Haikyuu!! dj's BTW. Check them out.

Ooooh I like this one a lot. I like how it's drawn, the art is perfect. The faces are full of expressions and you can clearly see emotions. KIZU Natsuki sure is a talented mangaka.

The story is very nice, too. The characters have depth, there's a back story, there are side stories involving more characters than the main duo.

I am very excited to see everything developing further. This seems to be a nice, slow paced romance. The feeling I get reminds me of when I read some of Takarai Rihito's work like Seven Days or Hana no Mizo Shiru.
