Synopsis

When Yui was young, his parents were always working. He was lonely and sick of eating the cold food left for him by his mother. His friends would spend their time talking about all the wonderful video games they played, which his own parents never bought for him.

In the midst of his despair, Yui is taken in by a kind man living in the neighborhood. He gives Yui hot food and lets him play all the games he desires—giving him everything his parents cannot. Yui loves his "Nii-chan" more than his parents, friends, or anything else. Nii-chan will continue to let him come over as long as he never tells anyone about him. But his beloved Nii-chan's motives are far from pure, and when things get out of hand, Yui ends up betraying his promise of secrecy.

Six years later, Yui encounters the man once again. With the trauma of his childhood weighing him down, he finds his heart heavy with the regret of running away. He had turned against the man that gave him everything, and with their reunion, Nii-chan is unable to forgive his betrayal. With the hope of understanding the man's actions, Yui starts digging deep into the past.

As a huge BL fan, I have to admit that many BL mangas either fetishize gay men or portray an abusive/unhealthy relationship between men and make things like pedophilia seem cute when in reality, it isn't. However we should keep in mind that even though many authors create these things, these are all just fiction and a fantasy for their readers in the end.

This is one of the most original stories I've read in a BL manga. I would give this a 10 for sure, because it explores the true reality of pedophilia and shows how it affects each of the characters in read more

There are some mangas with debatable stories and dubious topics...and then there's Niichan. I'm writing this review as a sort of a vent for myself and a warning to people planning to read this abomination of a story.

So last night, I was reading some yaoi manga, as usual and I thought of giving this a try since Harada is a pretty good mangaka, the art looks stunning and ...then I saw the summary. "..a young boy in grade school who often goes to this Niichan's place" made me go "Hah! Surely, they wouldn't draw a sex scene with a grade schooler! That's freaking disgusting! read more

It's a very vile manga about child predators and grooming. It's a fairly good portayal of it, so it gets a good score.

It IS disgusting though. Don't expect a cute romance with a minor or ''uwu softness'' like you fujo weebs say. It is a tale of abus. And the abused not growing out of his love for his abuser.

Not sure if the author glamorizes it, but she kinda seem to. ''It's not disgusting, it's a different type of love'' or something like that is written in and said by another character. So I'm not sure,, but it's very likely.

Regardless, it is gross, disgusting and read more

If you're looking for a cute bl story, this clearly isn't for you. It is a heavy and shocking story, which usually makes you disgusted by some characters and moments, because it is a work that deals explicitly with pedophilia, trauma and the possible consequences of this. In addition, it also shows how people around and the family react to these cases or even homosexuality. As I said before, it is a great work, but I must say that you need to have a little stomach to read until the end, even if you feel a lot of disgust, and if you reached the end read more
