Desperate in the face of Minako’s pregnancy, Hayafuji’s simmering hatred reaches the boiling point—and his grotesque imagination leaves Misuzu with an impossible choice to make.
Unflinching and sometimes brutal, Akane Torikai’s examination of sex, gender, and power is nonetheless warm and humane at heart, boasting a rich cast of characters whose all-too-human need for love takes them to dark and unexpected places.
