All humans are wolves in sheep's clothing and the same applies to Douchinji Youichi, a boy who always daydreams about various things, but never says anything out loud. One day, upon seeing a red full moon, a girl came dashing at him before punching him with a silver knuckle, knocking him unconscious and unable to really remember the incident. The next day, a new student, Akatsuki Ayame, joins his class.

On his way home, Youichi discovers that the girl who punched him is Ayame, and her silver knuckle draws out what she calls a "wolf", a person's inner thoughts or desires, from a "sheep", the superficial mask which restrains the inner "wolf" from surfacing. However, when someone is full of desires and becomes obssessed with their inner thoughts, the "wolf" outgrows the "sheep" and the person will be able to see the World of Red Moon. The girl explains that she doesn't have a "sheep" and would like to have one, so she requests Youichi to become her "sheep". Youichi agrees to it, marking the beginning of a story of the red riding hood who devours the wolf.

Even though I don't see any more of this manga being published, it's sort of a shame. I really enjoy the concept and the fact it's sorta twisted in the idea that it has both a 'good' and 'evil' side to things, yet both are needed to keep the other stable...least that's how I understood it. I find that the main character is surprisingly relatable in the sense of just being who he is and not being able to express himself truthfully.

Overall, I wish there was more to this. I believe it has some other chapters not listed, but I would totally recommend this read more
