Munakata Mira is in love with his father, the famous Hollywood actor Munakata Kyousuke. Unknown to the public, both of them are father and son as well as lovers. When Mira turns 15 and enters high school, he faces trouble with his childhood friend falling in love with him. Also, finding out he is adopted only distresses him further. Then there's the problem of Kyousuke probably marrying a famous actress, whose son seems to have an interest in Mira.

At one point in my life- I used to hunt around like a crazed lunatic to find anything Yaoi/Shonen Ai related- I stumbled upon Papa to Kiss in the Dark and after much hesitation I thought what have I honestly got to lose.
And the answer is- sanity.

So what's first- the story? Well a son and a father constantly engage in 'activities' but outside of that- things are just peachy. This until the son, Mira, finds out that actually his 'father' may not actually be related to him at all. So finally- you'd think that someone has poked back the incest issue with a stick. read more

Mira Munakata is a freshman who, is in love with Kyousuke Munakata, a handsome actor and his father; and the two of them are involved in a romantic and sexual relationship.

Even if you disapprove of incest or find that you just do not really see that as something you could handle, I highly suggest watching this anime. It has an interesting twist at the end. Not to mention it is a timid yaoi. Very cute, and very enjoyable. It is actually a good one for people to test the waters and see if they would like yaoi series.

Alright people... this is a simple case of "know what you're getting into". If the subject matter bothers you, then for sanity's sake DON"T WATCH IT. Going in I knew the story: Mira is in love with his father, Kyosuke, and things go wrong during the course of the story and at the end there's a happy Shonen-ai ending. There was no malicious intent in the story, although yes Kyosuke starts many of the... uh, you know.
I rate it low simply because it's predictable and unrealistic. The realationship between Kyosuke and Mira switches from parent and child to lovers so fast at times it read more

It was a good story I felt. I mean it wasn't the best in the world but it was a good story.

The whole thing revolves around a young boy who was basically being sexually abused by his uncle (who he believed was his father) starting at a very young age. As he gets older he is madly in love with his unlce-father and gets ridiculously jealous of a presumed other woman in his uncle-father's life. He is also insecure about his role and position in the household, ie is he just a toy for his uncle-father's use. You go through various read more
