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!

When I read the comments I wasn't convinced about reading this, but, I mean, it's IKE I read it anyway. It was a really good story, I don't have issues with incest, maybe because i'm too open minded (my friends tell me if i was more so, my brain would spill out), anyway, really good story, dealt well with the issues at hand. I would have given it a 10, but it was a bit too heavy at times, I know the issue deserves it, but when I finished this I was quite tired, so i'm giving it a 9.

Hm... It was definitely a different take on incest! I give it 6, because of it being so different, because other than that, it's pretty a average yaoi with the uke being a complete wuss and seme burniiiiing with oh so much desire. Actually, the characters seem pretty awkward. Nonetheless, it was pretty entertaining, if stupid.

Those who are perverted and who likes stories about gentle and loving couples, would definitely like it, yay ^_^! I have to say, that the way in which the main characters found themselves in rather *complicated* circumstances and the plot itself were very refreshing and exciting. It's the kind of manga that I would re-read.

Wonderful if the premise doesn't bother you.

The art and story are amazing, as with all of Ike's works, but it did take me a little bit to get over the incest aspect of the story. You really feel for Konomi throughout, and so many times I wanted to just hug the guy. Even in the present scenes he looks like a little teddy bear, while Ryou looks like the older of the pair.

There was one thing that helped me get over this one, and it might help others too-

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The son is the seme in the pair, so even though incest is "wrong", it doesn't come off as abusive.

Also, I have to chime in that people reading this for the first time need to hang in there. The translation is terrible. You can tell it's twice removed from the original Japanese script, and it's like the editor took a vacation in some chapters. Buy a copy and translate it on your own if you understand Japanese.

I often ignore this manga then I was browsing Tears and Rainbows' site and the sentences on the cover got me curios. After reading the summary and a few comments, i decided to download it! kinda intriguing right? While reading chapter 1, It reminds me of the Time Traveler's wife ~ any good book if made into a BL style makes it really really REALLY fantastic! It will really get you hook up! so go n and read this manga! ~now, i should finish reading it > smile and check out the ending

This series plot takes you by surprise. Its not a cliche and the characters have deep thoughts and feelings. The series was just amazing and not a two minute light hearted read but it had it's moments. If your not Sure about this manga i guarantee after reading two chapters you'll be hook.

but nothing too interesting. as a incest and yaoi and shota lover, this should be up my alley, i should be horribly excited, but this don't really give me palpitating heartbeats. there's something missing here - the beautiful but a bit stiff art, the sometimes boring long winded sentences, the slightly dull characters, the age-unrealistic character design, the uninspiring sex, the overly stretched drama....yes, if only it is tighter.

but it is not bad. i won't say it is bad, it have some good points. people who don't read much yaoi may find this very thrilling. however to me, this is good for only one read.

This is just so wonderful. While reading it, it gave me a heavy feeling that I was able to feel what they were going through. For me, it was really tough and affected me. But this only means that story is beautiful. I love their very complicated love story, being father and son at the same time both guys. I love it. I hope Ike-sensei will write another wonderful and unique story like this.

I've been following this from the beginning and now that it is completed, my feelings on it aren't quite what they used to be. This started out really wonderful, but toward the last few chapters it kind of fizzled a bit for me. This is not to say that it's bad by any means. There are great characters and the story is interesting, but I feel some parts were not developed to my satisfaction. The ending lacked the same emotional punch which the rest of the chapters had. I liked some aspects of it, but it mostly felt as if it were thrown together in order to bring a conclusion to the story without enough thought for the story as a whole. Maybe I'm being overly critical? Anyway, I still really enjoyed this series and I'm sure I will revisit it at some point.

Beautiful love story

I'm so glad I stuck through this. It was heartbreaking at first but the ending is really good. I wish sensei could have given us an extra one-shot though (hopefully there's one coming). Anyway, a lot of people are against incest. But for me, especially when it's written this beautifully, I can't help but disagree and just tell them to give it a chance. This was a rare type of incest (father/son) since we always encounter incest between siblings, cousins, etc. Not a father-son pair. But we have to put in mind that at the beginning the other party was not aware of it, and Ryou, just couldn't help but to fall in love with the young Konomi. I think that if they met in different circumstances, say in the present, they would still fall in love with each other. They were just destined to have this ill-fated love. And it's all the more beautiful because they love each other so much to the point of disregarding morals. I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for, "as long as we understand what we have" type of situations. I'm so happy for these two. If sensei were to continue this I bet she'll just show us Ryou and Konomi growing old together, living happily. Ahhh so beautiful!!! She's amazing at combining amazing plot + beautiful love story + sexy scenes in one story.
