Having begun a relationship, lovers Shun Hashimoto and Mio Chibana depart for Tokyo. Unlike the tranquil seaside town where they met, the city is a bustling metropolis, where people from all walks of life go about their lives. Even so, openly being in a homosexual relationship is never an easy task in a society that rejects those who go against the norm.

Their destination is Shun's family home, a place he left years ago after outing himself. Nearly everything is nostalgic about that place, from the very same dog to the very same roof, but a boisterous younger brother is an unexpected surprise. While Shun's mother wishes for the two to stay, his father remains emotionally disconnected from his son.

As they become reacquainted with family friends and grow accustomed to their new environment, Shun and Mio are faced with a seemingly insurmountable challenge—coming to terms with their pasts.

What does it mean to love someone? What does it take to love yourself?

*This is a spoiler free review*

First of all, this is not your average yaoi centering around sex, lust, roles and power. This is a slice-of-life story about two people who fall in love and how they deal with the issues they encounter when their relationship develops. The plot is not complex, it concentrates on main characters’ everyday life and we get to know more about them and their past while they get to know each other better.

The fact that the protagonists are both male brings up questions about sexuality, self-denial and acceptance, ...

I find it one of the most amazing yaoi mangas I've read, along with 19 days from Old Xian. Because it breaks some cliches heteronormatives stereotypes of yaoi that I long so much for their fall for more humanistic representation of LGBT couples in mangas. I loved the art above all, the atmosfere, it's beautifull, and how it shows the issues the characters struggle like homophobia, sorrow and loss of somebody to death, self aceptance, sexuality, developing a relationship, dealing with normativity pressures, family bonds, work, the person in it's culture and how they negotiate with that... Is so deep, and also so delicate how ...

Preliminary (12/? eps)
So, i'm gonna be totally honest about what I thought of it. Also, I'm sorry about my mistakes, English is not my first language.
I really wanted to like this one, really. But, unfortunately, I ended up almost hating it.

The artwork is beautiful, the artist is really good at making characters expressions, making them look and feel emotional. That's the best part of the manga. The artwork.

About the characters, the only one I like is Shun. Shun is almost aways feeling down, anxious and nervous, but he always try to do what is best for the people around him. I've lost count how many times ...
