Set in Japan during the '20s, Mitsuyaku is the story of two childhood friends from very different walks of life who grow up to become lovers. Yuuichi is an ambitious type from humble beginnings, working his way towards success. His beloved Iori is the scion of an important family -- a beautiful, dark-haired creature with a gentle nature.

Unfortunately, one of the aspects of belonging to an important lineage is marriage. Will the hero have the guts to stay with the love of his life, or will he succumb to his family's pressure to shore up the dwindling finances by marrying rich?

everyone commented this was sad but if you read the last few pages carefully you can see that Iori and Yuuichi left together they couldn't be separated no matter what, this is pure love

«✜[]✜» Fantastic art but the end's too open & sad. Apart from the Seme's late awakening,
it would be better if the author left us some more clues of their hope.
-- [Spoiler] -- The Seme couldn't survive w/o consuming the Uke's energy of life. Although they balanced it well, both still had shorter life spans. What a terrible fate! .•´(>д<)`•.
BTW. Seems like his bride & mom were secret lover. She married son to live with mom & had her bloodline which the Uke also knew. That's why they're so happy being together even w/o him.

    I think that they ran away together & won't b back. They die together. His so called "wife" is his mother's childhood friend. Old enough 2 b his mother. chapter 2 page 14. Well, that is my opinion.

    • yaoi_hime August 6, 2016 12:21 pm

      At the end, they didnt care and ran away together leaving everything and everyone, just together and doing everything for each other, niether of them cared for what they say about them mistaking love from lust and just went together and ran away. It is a super cute ending

    Stupid question of the day:
    Did they really love each other or was it just as predator and prey like the uncle was saying?
    I kind of wished they got more into the history of yuichi and Iori like when they first became lovers. It kind of seemed like they we're together from when they we're teenagers.

      I think they eloped

    • BLgal January 10, 2016 2:03 am

      They ran away from home together, although we will never know if Iori will die later on because he is together Yuuichi.

  13. KatZ December 2, 2015 8:30 am

    Yo creo que el toque que le da Iori a Yuuichi en el brazo y que Yuuichi lo haya aceptado significa que Yuuichi lo acepta a su lado a pesar de lo que eso conlleva. o sea que al final ambos escapan juntos y tratan de vivir lo mejor que puedan el tiempo que dure y prefiero creer que ambos mueren :c no sólo uno porque eso me da más pena. y las cartas del final creo que sólo son para mantener a la familia calmada porque como Iori dijo lo más importante para él es Yuuichi incluso más que su mamá y su hermana ;c.

    • Anonymous December 25, 2015 10:17 pm

      Ok translation is: " I think the way Iori touches Yuuichi in the arm and the fact that Yuuichi accepted it means Yuuichi allows him by his side despite what it entails. Thus in the end both will elope together and try to live the best they can for the time that they have and I'd rather think they both die and not just one because that is more upsetting. And I think the letters at the end are only to appease the family and nothing more because like Iori said what's most important to him is Yuuichi, more than his mother and sister." (t/n: you're welcome XD)

    I think the story is good but they have a sad fate. though I guess they could still be together if they didn't sleep together but then he would die without eating him so......just sad. I basically cried because they seemed to love each other so much and he was told it wasn't real. I wonder if that was true or simply a lie they tell themselves so they can keep on living after killing the one they loved?

    his name means unique the only exception of the clan so they will find something to avoid hid death without harming iori too.

    ...I'd tell Iori everything I'd been told and let him decide. He'd likely choose to die for me, so I'd grant his wish, then kill myself. If he chose to live, I'd leave and die quietly, knowing I'd fulfilled Iori's wish.
    I don't put a lot of weight into living or dying. I believe our souls are eternal and our "lifespan" is one among thousands. Don't get me wrong, I'm not eager to die, but I don't fear it. My body may cease to exist, but "I" am eternal... I'll come back around this way again someday. Death is just the beginning of a new adventure. (⌒▽⌒)

      Se lui vuole morire per me e io voglio morire per lui allora credo che la cosa migliore da fare sia morire insieme no ?!

  18. BakeNeko September 1, 2015 11:03 pm

    *Spoiler Alert*
    The end: Rather than running away together Iori is chasing Yuuichi just as he said, and will return once Yuuichi is tired of running. Sadly though that might mean death for one of them. T.T so sad!
