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.

For that, I'll leave the rest for you to ...

I read this out of whim. I was baited for it being a Smut Manga. The first chapter made me question what I just read, then when I continued reading the hooker pulled me into a bittersweet adventure between a suicidal man and a housewife.

Eating Crab with a Yukionna isn't just a simple story. There's a lot of layers you have to understand before you find the answer you need, and once everything comes together, it's a beautiful, bittersweet story that shouldn't be really viewed as one, but it is.

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

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
