    This was an unexpected hit, I absolutely didn’t think I’d fall in love with it! A genuinely polyamorous story about a troubled boy named Satoru who falls into a relationship with Nagi, who he is in love with, and Gou, who he is not. (At first.) This could so easily have fallen into the “nope” pile for me. I thought it would end up with senseless “he’s mine!” bickering. I thought Satoru’s backstory and modeling career would just end up hopelessly edgy and boring. I thought the art style hinted at common BL clichés. But no, somehow the author managed to balance just on the edge of cringeyness without falling headfirst into it. Instead, the story came off as interesting and heartfelt, and I’m very glad it did. I didn’t love the art style, but it suited the story somehow and I was used to it by the end. It was so good, I’ve actually reread this one a few times.

    Have you ever read a manga with a love triangle and thought: “the three of them should just date each other”? Well, the boys on this manga do exactly that. The polyamorous relationship was really well done, the feelings they all have for each other seem very genuine, and their relationship progresses in a way that seems natural and believable. It’s not all just sweet and perfect, there’s things that get in the way of their relationship like Satoru’s insecurities and fear of letting himself be vulnerable or Nagi’s jealousy, but it’s dealed with in a way that makes the characters seem real, and it’s there for character development rather than being just mindless drama. There were things that I didn’t like how they were resolved which is why I’m not giving it 5 stars, but the relationship and character development is really outstanding. That said, this might not be a manga for everyone since it depicts sexual abuse (mainly in flashbacks) as well as parental abuse, and some scenes can be hard to read because of that. But it is a beautiful story, one of my favorite manga in futekiya thar I’ve reread several times.
