Haruma Sakuraba's childhood friend Shuuji Inukai was a cut above him in every way imaginable, living out the glamorous life bestowed upon him. Haruma, an unassuming salaryman, has lived his every day clutching onto his inferiority complex, existing only in Shuuji's shadow. One day, Haruma coincidentally meets Shuuji's wife, Reika Sumi, who Haruma has always secretly admired since his high school days. With feelings of envy, jealousy, and more, a "secret" is born from Haruma's repetitive days.

This manga excels at keeping you on edge. While it has the vibes of a soap opera, I was thoroughly entertained by the tenseness of every reveal and would not say it’s melodramatic.

I had no idea what I was going to be expecting when I started reading the manga but after the first chapter, I was instantly hooked. This manga will keep you wanting more and more and the suspense is so intense.

I am someone who loves mystery but not in a dark story but Inu to Kuzu is more than a dark mystery story. It is full of crazy, creepy, and insane plot twists that keep you on the edge and wanting more. The story feels out of place, it just happens all of a sudden that you can't focus on what's happening. Sakuraba's character really ...
