It’s the last year of high school, and love is in the air. Romantic feelings that have been building up over years of friendship come to light. When Taichi’s classmate Futaba asks him to help her confess to his best friend, Toma, it sparks the catalyst that begins the sweet and heart-wrenching journey of their third and final year of high school.
The story starts out simple, Ichinose (MC) is asked by his crush to help her date his best friend. The development of these two characters develops wonderfully as they work to better understand themselves and learn of their own self-value. There are also themes of LGBT+ romance as two of the characters have to come to terms that the people they have a crush on is unrequited due to the fact they are the same gender. One of the characters reveals this and from there the story takes a huge dive into more of a philosophical discussion on peoples feeling and what can be viewed as the right or wrong thing to do. The second half is a much harder read than the beginning and leaves you somewhat confused about what's being said. Overall I think the story starts out really good but the second half can leave you confused and unsatisfied.
At first, I thought I wouldn't like it because I don't really read Shounen. I'm more of a Shoujo gal especially with the art style. Thank God I decided to give this a chance. It was so beautifully written, the characters and the story just captivated me. I really can't explain what sets this apart from other romance mangas so I'll just leave some of the quotes/dialogues that truly resonates with me. 1. "I want to live with freedom. I want to be able to say I love what I love. To not hurt anyone. Or be hurt by anyone." 2. "If I make a bunch of lies right now and you believe them, then those become your truth. But if I tell you the absolute truth and you don't believe me, then they won't become your truth." Do yourself a favor and pick this up asap.
