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.

Since child Ryou, he wanted to see his own father that keeping distance and after years pass by. Now he wants to see his father Konomi and see him look at him how he was now. But suddenly there is an expected event happen to Ryuo he went back to past in Showa era that he doesn't know what to do. There's a sad, loneliness, pain on both Konami and Ryou. How will the things turn to an happy ending to both of them? Recommended to read this sweet, sad and a strong bond love of Father-Son story.

    I can't help but cry. I feel so sad for them. 'Til the end, I was kinda hoping that they're really not father and son. So I felt that this is still somehow incomplete for me. I have so many unanswered questions. That was one hell of a story. I've read a lot of incest but this blew me away. It was so heartrending that I really can't help but cry. I still hope that they're not really father & son. Just saying.

      they are tho. it's just the seme (son) does not want to believe it, or try to deceive himself but he'd eventually accepted the reality and that's what made the ending till the omake dark and painful. the "curse" and the guilt will haunt them all their lives but they can't help the inescapable loop that happened. that's basically it.

    The forbidden love that a society, challenges and the evil of fate that wont separate them apart.

    Im so glad that the mangaka portrayed this kind of story perfectly that aside from his/her beautiful art

    The words that were used mesmerizes me.

    One of the memorable yaoi that will stay into my heart

    I like this, I only accept incest when they are both hopelessly in love with each other.

  11. hana4x May 4, 2016 11:05 pm

    probably the only father-son relationship that i approve. they aged beautifully too! and look at that hot body

    Ryou would somehow end up not being the actual son, so hey it's all ok. I don't know, it's been a long while since I read this

    I really don't know how I feel about the relationship itself, but the whole thing was good.

    This story just wow! I loved it. And for there to be such a complex and heart wrenching situation. Come on Gods were you just bored that day? Were bets placed to see if they would go for it? The gods are cruel man. But by damn if it didnt make for a heck of an awesome story. I just can't hate this no matter how taboo the concept of incest is. It was too well written.

  17. Jay April 1, 2016 5:34 pm

    Maybe I'm weird, but this manga basically summed up how I always felt about incest as a concept. It's wrong to reproduce in an incestuous relationship, but I don't think it's wrong to like someone that's blood-related. That being said, I guess it doesn't matter what it is conceptually because RL incestuous relationships are almost always abusive. I always think of the hypothetical situation where long lost siblings fall for each other without knowing lol.

    Truthfully im really into incest especially brother x brother pairing. I mean i dont mind this cuz they dont act like father and son and they dont look like father n son. N they r practically strangers who have the same dna... lets just say what the heart wants what it wants...

    It seems like this story is testing me whether I'm really open when it comes to relationships. I'm fine with incest but the father/son pairing is just making me really uncomfortable. Its just way too weird. I'm fine with other pairings like siblings, cousins, or other relatives but I just can't look at my parents like that.

    Its probably because I was raised orthodox environment and I went to a private religious school, that it somehow affects my perspective in things. Actually, I became an atheist because of that reason. I fell in love with best friend who's the same gender as me but I can't tell her what I feel because people viewed it weird.

    I'm actually happy that society started accepting same sex marriage. I just hope that everyone would accept it soon.

      Your comment was really interesting to me and I too am really happy that the idea of same sex marriage and couples are being more accepted. Lately I have been finding myself questioning my thoughts on the idea of love and this story made me explore of the idea "if I met someone and fell in love, but later found out we were closely related, does that make the feeling of love disappear? If it changes so quickly was it love to begin with?" Bleh and then it goes into a whole lot of random thoughts >.<' I can see why people would be uncomfortable with the idea of a father/son pairing though, I think this is the first I've come across.

      From what you said about your upbringing and how you feel, it sounds really tough and complex and I wish you all the best.

      PS Canadian ftw ;D

      Yeah. I agree with you. I also have conflicted feelings about incest (with siblings sometimes, cousins not that much...) specially in this situation because my mind tends to... Like how to say it, think of the whole scenario with my own experience? So it's weird, and it gets awkward ╮( ̄▽ ̄)╭ but I really liked the story, it's twisted? Well yeah, I guess, but the plot is amazing. I also wish for the day when same sex marriage can be view as nothing unnatural, since a lot of my friends are having problems with that, and I can't see what's wrong with. Falling in love.

      Anyways, this turned out really deep and long xD but it's because I can relate with what you're saying :)

    • nicadareas May 16, 2016 2:42 pm

      I don't know why, but as long as there was no abuse and no reproduction, incest has never bothered me, even in real life. I tend to have a "live and let live" outlook, so as long as it doesn't make a huge impact on my life and everyone's happy, more power to them. Honestly, the concept of incest being "bad" is a modern one anyway. It was widely accepted throughout history until recently, and it was expected for certain people, like royalty.

    I almost cried many times. I do really like incest (just in yaoi) and this story was good, it was original, at least for me. (● ̄(エ) ̄●)
