A story about two classmates who become friends, Sahoko and Rio. Rio is depressed and self-abusive and isn't loved by her "family" (which consists of her father, stepmother, and stepbrother), but Sahoko seems to be the bright spot in her life. Sahoko also seems to have a mysterious past and doesn't seem to have a good relationship with her parents; she lives with her aunt. It's also hinted at that Sahoko and Rio have met once before, when they were much younger...

Pietà is a good example of what one could call a "psychological romance", most commonly found in josei manga: much like titles such as Houkago Hokenshitsu, the focus is on the characters' inner demons, how they relate to and influence each other, and general psychological development, rather than dealing mainly with relationships and their own conflicts. In that sense, the relationship is understood merely as an extension of the characters' intentions. While there's no inherent problem in regular, more romantic-oriented and idealized titles, an alternative take on the genre is always welcome.

The plot is quite simple and its progression straightforward. It doesn't need obstacles usually read more
