Fresh off of an awful breakup, Shizuma Ikushima ends up heavily intoxicated and wakes up in bed with a strange man the next day. When confronted by Minato Mito, the man with whom he spent the night, Shizuma cannot remember a single detail of the previous evening. His forgetfulness offends Minato, who swears vengeance on Shizuma with a mean-spirited bet to seduce him and break his heart.

But despite their rough start, the two grow closer. As they begin to fall for each other, Shizuma struggles with his sexual identity while Minato wrestles with unfamiliar emotions and unresolved trauma.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

I've started this manga after i've seen a picture with those two on facebook and i really liked the art, especially Shizuma with that red hair he looks so good. I noticed its related with the parent story "Secret XXX" so i read that one first (i recommend you guys to do the same).

Story: I liked how it actually had so much story in it and it connected with the previous manga in such a nice way (also it was pretty funny). It contains "hot" scenes (not so many as in other manga tho) and each one of them is really well made.

Preliminary (5/10 eps)
It's a really interesting story (mostly because of the characters, not really of the storyline) even though it's quite unpopular. We have two fairly different characters. Shizuma had been living a peaceful life with his really likeable girlfriend, until they had broken up. On one morning some days later, Shizuna woke up next to a stranger, Minato, and it seemed they had... let's say "an interesting night together" in case children are reading this, but Shizuna didn't remember anything.
Shizuna is calm, intelligent and he lives for his work, so Minato, a person with loose morals wasn't very sympathetic to him. Minato knows this, however, ...
