To eat or be eaten, such is the way to live by relying on others. Kokonoe, a forest-dwelling fox, chanced upon a baby hawk that fell from his nest. He took the fledgling home as fodder, but Kokonoe ultimately couldn't bring himself to eat him, not after the child came to love him so wholeheartedly. So with that, Kokonoe named him "Yosuga" and decided to become his parent. "Please eat me." Now an adult, Yosuga always demands this of Kokonoe, wanting to repay Kokonoe for raising him so lovingly. But in response, Kokonoe starts feeling a different kind of "hunger" towards Yosuga...?
This was very sweet. It kind of felt like a metaphor for homosexuality in Japan. Like how they can't marry, have kids, or adopt there. The only thing that that was a bit off putting to me was the fact that the fox was the hawks 'parent' but the supernatural aspects of the story really watered down my concerns for that.
