What a hidden gem. I started reading this manga not expecting too much (being a yaoi and an incest one at that) but I was pleasantly surprised!

Basically, a 17yr old grows up not knowing his father but one day decides to meet him. After staying with his father for a few days he trips on a stone in the back yard and time travels to when his father was 14yrs old! After getting over the shock and realisation of what just happened, he really starts to get to know his father in a completely different light.
Of course not being able to explain who he read more

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
