    I have written about this manga before over in the !manga@ani.social community. It is an absolute mess of teenage drama and bit of a guilty pleasure. I really like the way they did this opening episode with half the episode from Rumi’s perspective and half the episode from Naori’s perspective; both going through common events but from different perspectives. If I remember the manga correctly, Jun’s thinking is also provided through here, so the way they sequenced this in the opening episode really puts the twins front and center. To be honest, their relationship is probably the most interesting one in what I have read of this series so far.

    I have not read far into this series and I fully expect this season to blow past what I have read of the manga. To help set expectations for people coming into this series blind though, expect a mess. If you ever watched a love triangle play out in a show or movie and thought to yourself that everything worked out a bit too cleanly, then this is the answer to that.

    One of my favorite things about this series is that all three of these characters have genuine feelings for each other and it feels genuine rather than contrived. The sisters really do love and support each other. Jun truly cares for each of the twins, with distinct and meaningful experiences with each of them. Also, from what I have read, nothing changes about that. Relationships come and go, but the feelings never leave. The three are truly caught in a problem with no solution; there basically has to be winners and losers.

    The description looked interesting so I decided to give it a try and now I’m invested. I can’t wait to see how this plays out.

      Same! I have read ahead a little in the manga, but only a handful of chapters have been translated, so not that far. Really enjoyed what I read though.

    I usually hate love triangles with siblings, so I wasn’t looking forward to this one, but it was actually way better than i expected. The story is well told, the characters fleshed out, and all the actions feel real and believable. The thing is, the reason I don’t like sibling love triangles is that they always seem a little too clear-cut and clean (or leaning into fetish-y) in most stories that use them, when in real life they would almost instantly get very very messy, emotionally speaking. This story is pretty much exactly what I’m talking about when I complain about those sorts of stories. Intense and contradictory feelings, deserved guilt mixing in with undeserved guilt, the lines blurred between real reasons to do / not do something and excuses to protect your own feelings. That all said, maybe I should have been careful with what I wished for, because this kind of messy teenage drama I think is a bit too much for me to handle. I do think it’ll end up being a good story, but I think it’s just not for me.

    On its own merits, I’d give this a 4/5, but I just don’t have the stomach to watch these kids suffer like I know they’re going to.

      A better one-sentence synopsis has never been written before about this series. I fully understand it is not everybody’s cup of tea though and I usually have to be in the right mood to enjoy these types of stories. Like I wrote elsewhere, I haven’t read very far in this series yet, so it might jump the metaphorical shark later like Domestic Girlfriend, but it will be a hell of a ride no matter where it goes.
