This story started off quickly and drew you in as you expected something really good, but a drop came as I didn't understand the character of Morihito at all, why he was doing what he did, and why Hitomi let him even though I read the explanations stated in the manga. It was all too convenient and easy, no true drama, and then Hitomi's father starts in with verbal abuse too angry with the son for looking like the wife who left him.
I know all these things are suppose to explain why Hitomi let's abuse happen, but it's all so disconnected, one really doesn't
care because his character wasn't developed enough first for you to like or dislike him, not enough to empathise with him.
I totally lost interest in this average story. Even with a common angsty story like this one, it could have been told better, and even in fiction I never like to see someone emotionally abused in this way. Reminds me of those real people who say they like to play with other people's emotions....Just not something I like at all. If you focus just on the sex scenes, you might like it just for that, but the story did zero for me. It was a struggle to try to complete it, I simply didn't care for the characters.
What did you think of this review?
