An absolutely stunning story about a trigger-loaded subject, father x son incest. It's handled with such originality and sensitivity, though, against a context of time travel, loneliness and alienation, that ... how does Ike Reibun transform something so icky into something so heartwarming and healing? By crafting a wonderful supernatural mystery like this. Stick around for the happy ending. This one's worth reading again and again. One of my favourites.

It's been two years then since the last time I've read this one. And I'm so fortunate to know that it is already completed. Yoshhhh!!!!! Thanks for your hardwork Ike~sensei!! [kampai]

One of the best manga ever. People should be reading this one. Honestly, I'm a victim of incest and I detest that but now I do love incest story, its because YAOI is soooooo goooooodddddd about it!!!

    This was a beautifully written story but in retrospect I still can't get over the fact that this is completely wrong in so many ways. It was a decision for the characters to say fuck it and let's stay together for happiness but reality is much harsher than this prettily wrapped ideal of a conclusion.

      Stories involving time travelling usually are.


      Basically there is a boy who goes to spend time with a father who he barely knows since his parents divorced when he was young. During that awkward period he manages to time travel to the past to meet his father who was 14 years at the time. They spend time with each other and fall in love. The father doesn't know he is his child but the latter obviously knows and still does the unthinkable with the father. So when the son returns to his original time period he wants to continue their love but by that time the father knows that they both have committed a grave taboo. Some pretty deep feeling get involved and Ryou tries to respect his father's wishes and forget about their love but in the end... bam! (yaoi style) they get together.

      That's the main story. The issue of Ryou burying and digging up various things from under the stone in the yard hold significant value in allowing the events of the time travel to occur. However if you don't get it it's not gonna affect the overall understanding of the plot.

    Those times the time slip appeared I kept thinking, "The Kamisama in this manga must be really bored to create a situation like this."

    I wonder what happened to lil'ol' grandpa for making him hate that house so much? ... Maybe I'm overthinking and he's just plain terrible, but it makes me curious ┑( ̄Д  ̄)┍

    the beautiful portrayal of their romance makes one forget that this is so wrong.

    who would've thought your son would travel back in time... to fck you.. and then you name your son....after your son...
    just imagine what it would be like if the father looked his age, and looked like his kid. ohmygod.

    I've honestly cried a lot for this manga. so beautiful T^T
    I wish I could read more manga just like this one!

    Beautiful and heartwrenching. Beautiful execution, as expected of Ike Reibun. Brings out very raw emotions. Angsty and beautiful. One of the best incest stories out there. Wait, scratch that. The best incest yaoi ever. I have yet to read its rival. Bonus: the art and sex are excellent. I also found no fault in the pacing. But really, the plot is overwhelming enough to make me pay attention to other elements (aka small things) like that. Seriously, this is just so beautiful.

    Out of all the incest manga I've read this is the best. Prob because they don't look alike and that makes me forget. But I'm the type that likes the whole "twincest" thing. I guess I just enjoy the forbidden aspect. Beautiful characters and the the story telling was just so saturated with emotion I cried all ten times I've prob read this story.

    I think konomi's father also exprienced a time slip bcause there was somthing placed before that trigerred this and when he placed the money it happned again so the jar was placed by some1 before like his father and grandmother story dont know bt this is what i felt(๑•ㅂ•)و✧

    I don't really have no opinion about incest in all honesty. I just consider it a misfortune turn of events. Humans can't change their feelings no matter how hard they try, so I pity those who fall in such situations. This being a beautiful example. There is only raw emotion and it's not their fault they were in love. They couldn't change their emotions even if they wanted, as shown in the story. I think this also applies to other stories, not all, but others. I actually believe their relationship and the feelings they had for eachother were what made the sorry beautiful.

    I always hated incest stories but this manga is the only exception! Too good. I still come back and cry. T.T

    I hope it wasn't an incest, because I think that will be great if it wasn't

    It was good but father and son having sex for me it's just disgusting...

    • lenewluf October 24, 2015 2:12 am

      I know right... Somewhere along the story I thought the mother would tell her son that he isn't actually his biological father... Guess I was too hopeful... Kinda dissapoint me

    ...and I LOVE Not Equal! Damn, I've read this manga at least 10 times in the past 8 months or so and I will never get tired of it. The art is beautiful, the story is really forget they are father and son despite the numerous times it has been brought up.

  17. nem October 3, 2015 8:20 pm

    This is the first time that i feel..not..digusted with incest type of manga. There is so much pure feelings like i do understand that it was an accident. This is beautiful, really. The first time that i have ever encouraged something related to incest to actually just go for it. It is both happy and sad yet fucked up that they are blood related. It is fucked up but then again its not lust but love (?) Well thats how i see it ╮( ̄▽ ̄)╭

    Mabey the dad hated the house because he knew of its powers and had gone back and had fallen in love with someone but it didn't workbout!(╯°Д °)╯╧╧

    "...I didn't want to die"

    Shit!! Such a heart wrenching, beautiful manga. If people call such pure feelings of love as sin, then nothing else in this world is pure.

  20. I DONT UNDERSTAND September 1, 2015 1:10 pm

    I dont really get ot. Can someone explain it to me about the house ? Why konami's father really want to destroy the house ? Is the house also have any memories between konami' s father amd his grand mother?

    • aoimore September 1, 2015 1:14 pm

      I also didnt really get it. Maybe someone can explain it to us ?

      Basically, the son time travels and falls in love with his dad in the past. Blah blah blah, dad figures it out in current time. and the son and dad have a happy ending in the current time.

      Yeah i understand about the son who fallimg in love with his father very well. But i asking about the house and the former head house. Because he is really want to destroy that house. First i thought that he also had time travels him self to the past, and fallen in love with someone. But i also not sure about it. Thats why im asking a question here

      I think that Konomi's dad doesn't like his grandmother. From just looking at their attitudes towards Konomi (the grandmother is really kind to jim while his parents treat him like shit) they're kind of opposites. PLus, at her funeral the mom just left town right away(although it was probably just to get away from Konomi, leaving right after your mothers funeral isn't exactly something a good daughter would do).
      So basically my guess was that the mom and dad really didn't like the house because they didn't like the grandma and because the house was creepy and thats why they wanted it torn down.

    • Firefly October 12, 2015 7:01 pm

      The house has a magic to it, which Konomi's dad fears. Ryou going back in time wasn't the first crazy thing to happen. The grandma told Konomi's about how his grandfather once appeared in the yard, simply because he was longing to see her. We don't know what exact experience his dad had with the house, but it has made him hate it.
