So, this manga is totally not what I'm used to reading and I feel like I liked it more than I should. It's kinda heavy and tragic, so if that's not your thing, maybe you shouldn't read. The first story is so full of incest is not even funny, but I actually liked it a lot. Although I feel like I liked it because of my love towards crazy, creepy stories rather than yaoi... || Second chapter was cute. I mainly liked how he was so in love with the bouquet. || Third story was really well done. Mainly cause its one of the few yaois where a victim of rape actually suffers of some kind of psychological aftermath. || Last story made me awkward so im not gonna talk about it....

      it's the same artist. sensei is just being purposely silly for humor's sake. the only time she's ever drawn a gorilla-like character.

    So, is there anyone like my ancient relic self who got the leiji matsumoto space opera references in the last chapter parody? I was torn between disgust and amusement as i'm reading.

    So, these are certainly twisted, but really interesting. Very underrated manga.

    ...That was quite an unexpected ending. Tough I did though at some point that he was his brother.

    It's the only one I like of these even if the last one is quite funny & sweet, if you can stop your stomach from empting itself over the look of the couple.
    But that's me! ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶

  9. Concerning the first story... December 13, 2015 12:16 am

    A lot of people are saying Kanou loved both Kazuhiko and Kasumi, but I highly disagree. I think the kiss scene clearly demonstrated that Kanou loved Kazuhiko.

    However, Kanou cared for Kasumi in a different manner. It was probably born, as Kazuhiko pointed out, from Kanou's fear that the kid was his own son. But I think he eventually found out the truth. And that, along with how attached he probably was to Kasumi at this point, explains why Kanou cares for Kasumi so much. After all, whereas Kazuhiko emphasizesd the frailty of Kasumi, Kanou points out the beauty (as the result of their "consummation" within the mother's body). And this is why Kanou is so irate when Kazuhiko sees Kasumi as a mere doll, devoid of human will. It's not a display of love for Kasumi.

    I think that if the author wanted to portray Kanou as having feelings for Kasumi, she would have depicted the bath scene very differently. Currently, it seems purely platonic, and Kazuhiko seems to be jealous of the attention and care Kasumi is receiving, rather than some romantic affection.

    The last thing is that it seemed pretty obvious that Kanou's main goal in fucking Kasumi was to spite Kazuhiko. If Kanou truly cared for Kasumi more than Kazuhiko, he wouldn't have done that. Their bond is shown through mutual respect and trust. If Kanou had held Kasumi more dearly in his heart, he would have checked to see if Kasumi was hurt, instead of sexually provoking him.

    Kanou's choice in the end isn't a choice of romance. It's the betrayal that Kazuhiko feels (as it is being narrated from his POV). To Kazuhiko, it seems like even 'till the last moment, Kanou is directing his attention toward Kasumi and not him. Never him. Even when he tries desperately to get it at any cost, including murderous rage. I really think this story was a the portrayal of twisted love rather than a love triangle.

    I don't understand... Did the seme eventually will kill the child (since he let him burn)? Did seme actually love dark haired uke (he kissed him when he was dying)? And, why did he have sex with their child? I just don't get it...

    • Anonymous October 23, 2015 5:09 am

      Those are the normal questions you would do after reading it. It isn't clear and it isn't meant to be clear, at least that is my opinion.
      The child, well... it isn't clear whose child he was, I don't even know if the master was telling the truth, but it could be 50/50, Kanou/Master. Even so, Kanou didn't mind having sex with his assumed child in front of an agonizing (if not dead) man who was in love of him.
      So much secrets and hidden feelings. That's what is left.

    • Anonymous October 23, 2015 6:09 am

      Although, it could be as KyoZaNa✿ said: Kanou intended to make the kid's skin burn and blister so he wouldn't be buyed.
      And the phrase "you chose him" gets a lot more meaning than if he would have wrapped him up as usual.
      That's why is nice to read other comments and interpretations, you can see the story from a different point of view (⌒▽⌒)
      So, keep asking questions!

    I love the first story.... I'm sorry I'm such a messep up person....
    I prefer the seme be with the uke who is dead. I don't like the retarded uke.... but I can't blame him for killing his own father, since he has mental retardation due incest....
    Fucked up stories make your brain working as to try to understand the plot, understand why, and keep telling your heart that this is only a story eventhough it's messed up with your feelings and logic. That's why I love it

    • Anonymous October 23, 2015 5:20 am

      In further discussions, please don't use the word "retarded" because it is a pejorative and offensive word.
      I don't know which exactly is the term used in English, but I would say Kasumi was "cognitively limited".
      I thought about his limitations and I think they could be also due to lack of education. But it isn't clear, so it's just an hypothesis.
      Yeah, Kunieda Saika has interesting plots and I also enjoy twisted stories and trying to unravel them.

    Dark twisted yaoi summary of chapter 1/story 1 in my own opinion - READ AT UR OWN RISK AND SPOIL AT UR OWN RISK
    Click on the [+] sign at the side to read spoilers.

    The first story is so complex from what i've gather both the dark seme and the uke f*ck with the mother and the retarded kid was born most probably from the uke's sperm since uke and mother is same dna the kid got that weird disease that make u turn white, this is what i heard happen when sibling have sex and conceive because the baby born from similar dna cannot survive most babies die young or is miscarriage. Dark seme realize the kid belong to uke and the mother but care for the retarded kid. the retared kid is a slut/whore like the mother and kill his own father to get the dark seme to f*ck him. Dark seme f*ck uke kid after uke death as a form of revenge to uke. dark seme decide to kill the retarded kid at the end by making the kid go into the sunlight because the kid gonna die anyway. the end.

    what a twisted story. u can say the story tells of a generation of disgusting incest/whores - mother is a whore who sleep with her own kid (uke) and dark seme, dark seme and uke sleep together, dark seme f*ck uke retarded kids. retarded kid is a whore himself and a criminal and end up killing his own father but he's too retarded to understand that. like mother like son? the only victim may be the dark seme, well, most likely he will choose to die after killing the retared kid.

    The first was very moving even if some aspects bug me.
    I really don't like the fact that Kanou kissed this asshole dude when he's about to die, and I think Kanow should have covered the fragile Uke in a linen in order to protect his skin from the sun.

    The last was very funny :D Even though the Seme was really lack of sex-apeal ^^
