Having lived in an orphanage for as long as he can remember, high school student Yuki Sakurai has always believed that he existed to burden others. Despite possessing a mysterious power that allows him to see other people's emotions, the ability seems to torment him instead.

One day, a beautiful man in black clothes saves Yuki's life, and Yuki faintly feels as if he has met this stranger before. The stranger, later introducing himself as Zess, displays a strong concern about Yuki but quickly disappears after giving him a warning. The following day, Takashiro Giou—the head of the Giou Clan—appears at the orphanage claiming to be Yuki's brother and proposes an idea that Yuki is reluctant to accept.

As puzzling problems threaten his safety emerge and familiar faces reappear, Yuki soon learns that his frail existence holds a greater significance than he had initially thought.

The way you end a story can either make it or break it. The Betrayal Knows My Name? It broke it. Well... kind of?
Now, hear me out or rather let me break it down to you. The plot of the story isn't really anything special. You probably read something like this already, but i nonetheless enjoyed it. The art style is also quite the standard for it's genre and the era the manga started in. I liked some of the character's designs, and some I disliked (ahem, Luka, looking at you - tho 12 y/o me would probably droll over you), but the art itself read more

I loved the manga I just had to buy the full set.

The manga had a good plotline happening. It's different from your typical action thriller mangas where this story is connected to past lives while also trying to move forward in their current life. I loved the characters, almost all the characters introduced have their own backstory while some are still left in mystery. I loved the relationships these characters have with each other and that they are paired together. I don't even care that there are male-male relationships. It's not yaoi but more like shounen-ai. You just squeal at every little interaction. You read more

To add onto the already existing reviews, you honestly cannot go wrong with this story. You fall in love with all the characters, my FAVORITE being Tachibana & Sodom. :3 I would not put this one aside even with the shounen-ai tag. This is more comrade-ship type, similar to 07 Ghost. No yaoi/boy love at all. I mean sure the dialogue may imply it, but I didn't get that vibe what-so-ever. The art is amazing, the story progresses so smoothly though I did have some confusion more towards the last volume as to how it suddenly developed midway, the characters are so fun, & more!! read more

I read it since 1-2 years ago, and still drawn on it ^.^ It's very good story I can said. You can feel excitment, happiness, cheerfulness, and even touching. Sou da yo! It happened to me when i read vol 4 (the scene Yuki found out the real Kanata), I cried for good. Yuki, kawaiso~ >< Even u can feel sorry for the main protagonist hiks :(

Why most people said its genre is shounen-ai? yes I admit I got the manga from yaoi site, but from my point of view, it had less 'shonen-ai' scene. More like shoujo-manga type I might said. Main plot read more
