This manga definitely deserves a review because I want to warn anyone else before they suffer through what I've just been through. Yes, you read it right.
I dropped this manga on page 65 (somewhere around chapter three) Here's why:

SLIGHT SPOILERS, YOU WILL LIVE WITH IT: This is manga disgusted me right from the beginning because it introduced rape and "indirect" incest as just an everyday common occurrence--I get how some people DO NOT mind these aspects, that's fine, but the problem doesn't lie in the usage, it lies with the details.

But honestly, I felt it was all worth it when I got to the second story. The second story is great and I wish there was more of it. It focuses on body image issues in a read more
