My Review:

Ritsuki is heartbroken by the death of his older brother who he adored.  He is determined to find the killer even though he has a mentally unstable mother who beats him.  People start to notice the bruises on his body and they start to wonder?

At school Ritsuki is bullied and his relationship with Soubi grows closer.  He starts to develop feelings for Soubi but doesn't know how to deal with them and he is trying to figure out how both of them are connected.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
