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!!!

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.

    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

  2. BLgal May 15, 2016 1:53 am

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

  3. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. twisted March 14, 2016 4:06 am

    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.

  12. izumialan March 4, 2016 2:56 am

    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) ̄●)

      February 29, 2016 5:59 pm

      I don't think ' the fate ' want a ' father ' and ' son ' to be togther
      I understand the idea that's just a fantasy imagination.. But it's still werd !
      I mean if they was not related in blood the story will perfect..
      And again, it's my opinion.. Kore dake (=・ω・=)

    • Butter February 29, 2016 4:29 pm

      Not really, men make lots of that stuff and if they don't use it regularly, it clumps together and isn't very viable. It's better to use that stuff

    Really clever way to get around the incest... gets to a point where it doesn't seem wrong and just fades into a beautiful love story.

    (= only fatherxson yaoi I've found okay morally XD)

  18. Animelova February 2, 2016 3:44 am

    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.

      i find it very confusing

    • Animelova February 7, 2016 7:53 am

      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.
