Forbidden love has got to be one of the most interesting stories ever. You know, wanting to feel and express love but you know you can’t because people give those piercing looks. This has to be a difficult love for our couple, who are actually cousins, as they eventually realize their nurtured feelings for each other which have rooted since their childhood years. But as they face the world of prejudice, love prevails after all.

Another romance but only different this time. Now, the forbidden factor of loving one's own cousin is involved.

As unrealistic as most manga/anime are at tackling subjects that are considered "wrong", "disgusting" or "unnatural" in society, they manage to give the readers a more opened mind and unbiased view towards the subjects.

This manga is an example. Not only does it get on the subject on loving one's own family member, but it also touches upon loving a person of the same gender. As mentioned, the ending is probably not that realistic and involves more complications than portrayed but it gets readers to have a read more

i don't know why you would like this story, maybe you like your cousin or you're in a relationship with them. there's a reason why forbidden love is forbidden, and it felt like the author was trying to say cousins liking each other is okay since gay people exist.

the story was confusing, no likeable characters, no good scenes, the art is horrid in my opinion, character design is terrible, i had trouble finishing this manga, and kept forcing myself to like it even though there was nothing to like. so to sum it up, pathetic story, art, characters, and absolutely no enjoyment. 1/10. if i read more

seriously. this is another heart breaking romance manga from io-sensei.
ive been a fan of her manga Strobe Edge. and i loved it very much, so i decided to find for more of her works. and this is how i found BLUE.

at the first part, i thought that it would be cliche type of romance. but somehow, its not possible for io-sensei to write a cliche type of romance where the girl meets boy, the girl confessing her one sided love then fall inlove with each other.
i got stucked up with this story too because its too heart wrenching. io-sensei always wins in getting the read more
