Hara Sakutarou, grieving the sudden loss of his parents, suddenly finds himself living with a random guy named Al. While he initially welcomes the company, his stress and frustration lead him to a place where he forces Al on the floor. It's basically rape. Or is it?
It's difficult to talk about the story without spoiling it, but you thought you were reading a generic drama yaoi, and suddenly the story is nothing like you thought it was. And more importantly, whatever happened between the two guys on the living room floor has grave consequences reaching much farther than Sakutarou, or our audience, could have
No, this isn't a rape story, or a preachy "Don't rape" story. (Is there actually anything like that in manga?) There's ecchi, but it's not a hentai manga. The sexuality, however, of the story is ethically on trial in a way that is fairly thought-provoking, especially as an ecchi manga.
Homerun Ken has become one of my favorite artists, and she doesn't dissapoint in this volume. The scenery is great, the supporting characters are great. It's a very beautiful and loveable story. The yaoi girls and boys will eat it up, and I think anyone with a minor tolerance for yaoi will enjoy it too if they give it a chance.
