Chiaki Sakaguchi appears to be a sociable, popular high school senior, but he carries a dark secret with him that he can tell no one about – not even his closest friends. When Chiaki meets fellow student Eiji Yukimura – an under-achieving social misfit – for the first time, he believes he’s found someone who can understand his inner pain. As the two become closer, Chiaki learns that Eiji has a secret also – a secret so dark, it threatens to overshadow his own. United by common dysfunction and angst, Chiaki and Eiji begin to search for pleasure together beyond their pain. Will the pair’s growing bond enable them to break free of their troubled pasts and create a brighter future? Or is the damage that’s been done to both of them beyond any healing that love can provide?

I love this manga. It's really cute and very sweet. It's a sweet story that tells about how two guys, who have both faced extreme hardships in the past, meet and come together to help each other with getting over their pain. It's very short but I find that though the length was short, the feelings were present and that's what makes this manga a good read.

Indeed it is a yaoi manga but unlike other yaoi, it has quite a deep story. Not too cheesy, and not completely made up of ecchi stuff (i.e. sex).
The characters have their strengths and weaknesses. Both leading males read more

By accident one night Chiaki and his stepfather with whom he has a masochistic affair are witnessed by Chiaki's schoolmate Eiji. Chiaki feels guilty about having caused an accident that killed his real father. As a result he finds comfort in cutting himself and sleeping with his sadistic stepfather, trying to cover the feeling of one pain with another. Chiaki sees a like mind in Eiji who is hiding a secret past so dark it even surpasses Chiaki's and has problems that make Chiakis comfort in pain appear minor. Eiji who is haunted by his own terrible past cannot become close to people. Fate throws read more

I flat out love this manga! One of the fewer yaoi manga which addresses some serious issues like sexual molestation and abuse, but which gladly have the young person involved more realistic in that, you do what you have to do to get by sometimes, but you don't tell lies to yourself about "loving" this abuser even if the abuser says the disgustedly sickening crap about loving you. This is more of a realistic story of when a youth is sexually abused, yet also a love story, where there is a satisfying ending also. A bittersweet story of two young men who come together, men read more

I flat out love this manga. There isn't a single thing I don't like about it, and I can be hard to please.

I bought this book about six months ago, and I've been in love with it ever since. Reading the summary, I thought, "Well, it might be a little cliche, but I'll buy it. Why not?" I was pleasantly surprised. No, I was ecstatic.

It undoubtedly has overused themes in it, such as the fact that it is a high school story, and it involves angsty teens who cut themselves. However, despite these facts, the story and plot as a whole really doesn't have read more
