As the cicadas chirp on a hot summer day, a man prepares to hang himself in his apartment. Unable to follow through with his plan, he lazes about and watches television to pass the time. However, when a special program about seafood from Hokkaido comes on, the man realizes that he has never once eaten crab. Determined to partake in the luxurious cuisine before his life ends, the man plans to travel to Hokkaido using the last of his money.

Unfortunately, the trip costs a bit more than he expected. Unemployed and lacking any valuable possessions to speak of, the man ponders taking out a loan. While wandering around lost in thought, he bumps into a high-class housewife. Taking notice of the grand diamond ring on her finger, the man makes up his mind. Deciding that robbery is his best bet, he trails the woman and forces himself into her house. And yet, before he even has the chance to extort her valuables from her, the woman offers him both her cash and her body.

Without getting too much into details, as I know there are other reviews out there that ...

They meet in an unlikely scenario and decide to not die until they travel to Wakkanai in Hokkaido, the northernmost city in Japan, and taste the king crab.

The series is made for adults with a lot of sex scenes. Even though the overall feeling is sad for this manga, there ...

I felt awful for the ML while reading this manga since he was suicidal as a result of a sexual assault case in which he was found not guilty and his family abandoned him. However, I felt it unusual and bizarre that he purposefully kidnapped a random wealthy woman (AKA THE FL) for a crab bite. Yes, she is cheating on her author husband, whom she does not love, according to what you read. This manga is supposed to be dark, but as I got halfway through the novel and they went on their "adventures," I didn't find the story to be very emotional. It's ...
