This is certainly one of the most beautiful manga I've ever read. Actually, I think it's arguable that it is one of the most beautiful stories I've ever read.
Next time somebody makes a disparaging comment about yaoi, I'll tell them to read this particular work. Not Equal was mind blowing. It wasn't just that the art was breath taking, and the conversation was intelligent, and the characters were well-developed, complex and relatable yet interesting; it was that this manga makes one think. I think classifying Not Equal as a psychological manga is highly appropriate. It leaves one pondering about our morals, what we believe read more

Even with bl, I'm usually not into incest unless the story line is very good.

And this manga is one of the good ones. This especially was a very tricky plot to tackle since it was father x son. But after reading this, it was truly touching and you can feel for the two main characters. ;n;

It was such a beautiful and amazing story, and unlike any other. Usually father x son stories are those that involve abuse or rape and I guarantee this is completely opposite of that.

10/10 recommend for anyone to read, but get ready to cry your eyes out.

Oh... only one had reviewed this manga?? WHY?!! This manga is such an amazing one!

Then I shall make one, too!

Not Equal is one of my fave Yaoi Manga. I dunno but somehow when I read this before.. it made me feel so sad. Warning.. it's incest.

Story: 9/10

I'd say the story is really unique though not really original. Well I think I've read something like this before.. I think it was Sleeping Moon. But they're not that really the same. Both are great stories though.

Anyway! The pace of the story of this manga is really heart wrenching (if you know what I mean) and just too read more
