In college, Naoto has an unexpected reunion with ex-boyfriend Taichi who he broke up with for denouncing him as "sexual gratification." Naoto had been firmly influenced by his hatred of this past incident but, little by little his heart is starting to forgive Taichi who has really grown when compared to their time in high school... While that's happening, their friend Fumi-chan seems to be in love with Taichi...? When they are friends, they have extraordinary compatibility, but turning it into love isn't going too well. A love story filled with emotional scars.

I have read a lot of yaoi / shounen ai manga. Of course I haven't read all of them, but for as much as I have read, this manga tackles something others don't. The reality of being gay/ in a gay relationship. From the research I've done, I know Japan is not as progressive to the LGBT community as the USA or Canada is. Gay marriage is still not legal. This manga shows the logistics of this and even discusses the legal aspects in Japan. This taught me a lot of things I did not know about the country.

This manga left a very good impression on me.

Story: 9 - When it comes to the story of this manga, it can be divided into 2 parts: (1) the first part corresponds to the first 6 chapters.

Even though the plot is not out of the ordinary, it is still very enjoyable; (2) the second part corresponds to the rest of the chapters. In it, the author starts to present us a bit more complicated topics, such as: the stigma against read more

First, I have to say that for me this manga ended in chapter 6. I think it was quite a success so they are going to lengthen it, but I don't really think new content can improve a plot that was already closed and tied up.

When I started reading Escape Journey I didn't think it would be different from other Ogeretsu Tanaka's mangas, but gradually the plot becames more interesting and deep, and you can start to appreciate the humanity and realism of the characters. They each have their own problems and personalities, but you discover these things in a sutile way. Nothing big read more
