Twenty years ago, Yuuichi Aizawa suffered through insurmountable bullying, ultimately culminating in him dropping out of middle school. Riddled with the signs of cigarette butts and gouged out skin, Aizawa's body is a testament to what he was forced to endure. All this time, he has not forgotten those who turned a blind eye or those who laughed in glee, but the memory of none lingers quite as vividly as Shinji Suzuki, the ringleader of his tormentors. With a successful career, lovely wife, and cheerful daughter, Suzuki is living life to the fullest, never facing adversity. However, he is unaware that his daughter, Shiori, has recently been assigned a new homeroom teacher—Aizawa himself.

Holding onto the pain of his past, Aizawa has his own agenda for how to handle his class. Meanwhile, Suzuki claims that it is the fault of the victim who suffers from bullying, too weak to stand up for themselves. But will he be able to say the same when his loved one becomes the next victim?

One of the best revenge manga I read

I think this manga does a really good job of portraying bullying, how it can start because of trivial things, how it has devastating consequences on various people and how schools usually care little about it as long as their reputation is not tarnished. Even though Aizawa is the MC, I consider Shiori to be the true star of this manga. You can't help but feel sorry for this kind girl who suffers a lot of hardships because of other people's mistakes. As it often happens for the innocent to be collateral damage for the sins of ...

I do not recommend this manga. I understood the author's intention with this work, but I believe they approached such an important topic in society, like bullying, in the wrong way.

This manga left me quite uncomfortable. It made it seem like I was reading a manga about revenge instead of a critique of society and the way bullying behaves within schools (for the most part).

Again, I understood what the author was trying to convey, but I believe that such a complex subject should be approached differently.

Having said that, I do not recommend this manga.
