SWWEEET is a romance/drama manga with some disturbing 'erotic' scenes in it.
It starts out with the protagonist talking to his reflection in the mirror.

His reflection is actually his lost twin brother, who reappeared in the mirror after being missing for many years.
They are having a discussion about whether the protagonist should save their childhood friend (a girl), whose currently bullied severely by her classmates.

Well… stuff happens here and there.. read more

What happens from here is an emotional story of broken characters who wish to fulfill the emptiness inside of them, and find out the truth of the missing sibling.

The art is great as is the story. The manga seems to get flack because of read more
