Summary: Tamiko lives with her two brothers, her mom, and her grandmom. It’s your typical family, or so she thought. But one day, she finds out Akira, her older brother, is not her brother at all, but the illegitimate child of the famous actress Hanyuu Kaori. To make things even more confusing, Akira’s feelings towards her isn’t the kind towards a sibling, and with his persistence, she finds herself falling in love with him as well. The plot becomes even more complicated when Yukari, Tamiko’s friend from school falls for Akira. Yukari though, has a connection with Akira that shocks everyone, including herself…
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: Graphics… are old. This was done in 1983. OLD MAN. So I’m very gentle with the rating for the graphics… they aren’t that bad for older graphics. The girls look dumb but man the guy… a real casanova! I also love how all the clothes are older looking… but that was “in style” back then. :P
This series is really interesting. It’s like a shiny rock… you’ve seen a million before… and it doesn’t seem to have anything awesome about it but you love it anyways. It has quite a few cliches and you totally know the secret from the beginning. But, knowing doesn’t compare to seeing the build up. This is definitely a case where slow and steady wins the race. Once you hit thats 7th chapter its like BAM! Nothing like manga now a days.
It’s fairly long for two volumes. Massive chapters. If you don’t mind the older drawing style, I’d say read it. I’m sure you’ve made bigger risks in your life.
Final Rating: 3/5
