Seventeen-year-old Mugi Awaya and Hanabi Yasuraoka appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don't know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Akane Minagawa, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share physical intimacy driven by loneliness. Will things stay like this for them forever?

A fruitless love. A painful love. A one-sided love. Is that really such a wonderful thing?

It's all too common throughout the romance genre to follow the journey of an unrequited love. These stories are usually light hearted in nature and sparkling with color as characters fantasize about confessing to their seemingly unobtainable goal. What rarely gets depicted however is the emotional toll that weighs on the soul of an individual who rests their hopes on the choices of another adolescent. To not be able to share yourself with the person you desire most in this world, even worse watch them grow closer to someone else, read more

I've just finished reading Kuzu no Honkai (Scums Wish) and I felt the need to put my thoughts into words, so I decided to write a review. As this work is ongoing take my current score with a grain of salt, as many of you know you can't give an accurate score till something is over. However, rest assured the 8 does mean that I have "enjoyed" what I've read (More on those quotations later). That being said, let's get into the nitty gritty.

The story is simple enough, two people find comfort in each other as the pine away for the ones they truly read more

I don't really like the idea of writing reviews and have never written a manga review before, but after reading all of the currently released chapters of this manga, I just thought damn, wtf did I just read and am I so masochistic enough to read all 38 chapters that are currently released. So I've decided to write this review to display my enjoyment of this miserable experience.

At first glance, you see a young high school couple who is the "ideal" couple, however, further reading along, you realize that they are perverted humans who only utilize each other in order to satisfy their physical needs read more

This review is spoiler free with nothing to do with the story, so you can enjoy the manga without knowing 'too' much. Remember this is my thoughts, therefore I will make a paragraph at the end about it not based on my personal thoughts.

Kuzu no Konkai is kind of messed up in many ways, not school days messed up but not your average manga. For me it's hard writing a review for this because i can't find much good things about it. Its not boring at all,I read all 40 chapters (so far) in the first go. I can't really love any of the characters, read more
