I stopped at Ch 6. It's a really depressing manga. Rape, Violence, Insanity.

«ƸӜƷƸӜƷ» It's like such a painful, sad and yet beautiful song, Masterpiece indeed!
Best Dark Drama Yaoi Ever with 'Butterfly Effect' theme; forced a husband to leave his dearest wife to marry another woman caused such a bloody tragedy from generation to generation, one tragic drama leaded to another worse one.. (● ̄(エ) ̄●)
It's realistic & well written until I felt too sorry for them to blame anyone though they commit such a drastic crime, except that wicked doctor.

The angst Seme truly deeply loves the Uke and willingly sacrifices anything even his life for him. Too bad he's cornered to start their relationship terribly by force. Poor guy!

Seems like forgiveness is a magic medicine which both the Seme & his dad need.
Butler : "Let me swallow your sins, in a sense you were also a victim." -- So I think he stabbed him as a dad & a husband of the victims to make him atone, just to stop him from going to jail. not to kill him. Before left, he even said "Please stay well."
The Seme : "I will live on because you were the one to tell me to[live]." -- So I'm pretty sure the Seme will survive & eventually live happily with the Uke. (。^‿^✿)

    Is this before WW2 or after? Cause if it's before...then they would surely see each other very very soon..

    so sad this story is so twisted i hope it will be a happy ending but it's a good story like it and i recommend it eventhought it's a bitterswwet

    Twist after twist..somewhat cliche story for tragic yaoi but still beautifully written. Like the ending though, doesn't matter if he lives or dies. IMO it'll be even a greater story if he didnt fall for his master and just forgive his act. How i wish that they dont fall for their rapists no matter what (typical yaoi-pattern, which is boring). Glad the mangaka decided not to make them stay together

      kys...You didn't get the lessons in the story.

      You obviously did not understand a single thing.

  5. Riki July 5, 2016 9:13 am

    I think Souma survives, because Sensei said ' I believe that someone who has decided to live, will not die so easily '.

    hahahaha i never laughed so hard in my life.. this is a truly beautiful yet very conflicting story. A very craving madness. i did not laugh out of mockery. its an ironic laugh to say and i myself understand clearly understands souma's demise.. i wish death upon me yet i cant take my very own life, and i too accepts all of my sins. very beautiful.. this will be a reminder forever in my life

    At first Chapter, I want to stop because the phasing is to slow, and for god sake its 100pages, but I tried , to finish the first chapter then it turns out there's so many questions in my mind about the first chapter that is needed to be answer, so I read along thenext chapter I get hooked and Oh My Gosh, this manga is brilliant. Different emotions were conveyed and also the storyline is great like I said you will be hooked up by evry chapter. For me Its not the typical yaoi that most of us read, it is everything. Overall I'm super happy to this manga but the ending leaves me hanging, because I was about to cry then its over, argh! But nevertheless its Worth reading. Highly recommended

    Man.. I don't know whether I will read this story again or not in the future. Its a good manga but hmm idk

    To actually be able to finish this manga, I'm really proud of myself. I was not able to drop this despite the most shocking turn of events. I could just stop for a few sec when it gets too much for me to handle then took a deep breathe & carry on again. What makes this different w/ the other dark stories of the same theme is the way the story gives of a mysterious feel at the very start. The openning scene already gave off a dark & heavy feeling and it got me really ecstatic! But I was just not prepared w/ the twists and the slow-paced revelation that just jumps right at my face unexpectedly. I certainly enjoyed reading this. Though this was an open ending, whether they found their way back into each other's arms or lived separate lives from then on, who knows, it was a fitting end. A magnificent story shrouded in mystery live up to it's hype til the end.

    Oh look how Masataka has grown! So proud of Souma for finding his happiness and moving on (▰˘◡˘▰) If only him and Souma ended up together in the end... Masataka found his dream, but Souma wanted him to find happiness also.. and thats where they parted. I hope sensei will make a comeback one day, this is one of the most beautiful yaoi manga that I've read!!!┗( T﹏T )┛
