I revived my MyAnimeList account just to write this review after just having finished the manga, because I think some manga lovers will skip it through misunderstanding of what it is, and as a result will miss a great story.

Meet Ruiko and Haru, our protagonists.
Ok, not really, that seems very misleading.
Let's start all over.
This story does not have A protagonist, read more
