When I read the synopsis it intrigued me. The idea that Tamura had dreams that foresee the future seemed really cool, but after reading it, i believe that if he wasnt able those dreams he wouldnt even be with Seiwa, at all.
Their relanshionship, if i can call it that cause it felt more like a business transaction, was nonexistent: we have two characters that just met, that never fell for another guy before, saying nice to meet you and i love you at the same time.
The supporting characters were also annoyingly unrealistic and all over the place and actually deciding the main characters next move for them.
I still forced myself to keep reading cause i figured since the whole thing was around them doing it, it should be at least worth reading, but no, the mangaka simply decides to skip the "most important" scene of the manga, like it's something trivial that had already happened fifty times or so.
The questions that i kept asking myself: would they be together if it wasnt for this so called dreams? if someone foresees a future that they dont want shouldnt the fact that he's able to foresee it make it possible for him to avoid it? and most importantly: Can it even be called fate?
To resume it, picture one of those lame ecchi stories where the guy convices the girl to have sex with him, cause otherwise the world would end, and if the girl thinks about questioning his motives the supporting characters are all there to convince her of how the world needs her to have sex with this guy, so that they all could live for at least another day. Change the girl into a guy and you have "Koi wa Ina Mono Myouna Mono"!!
I still do not get why the high ratings, but after finishing it i realize that this is a work done by Tsuda Mikiyo, and now looking at my list i did not like most of her works so i guess i would reccomend this manga to the people that know her works and like it, if you are not one of these people than you should probably pass on this one, believe me, there are better ones out there! read more
