What You Can Expect
The anime/manga is clearly aimed at the female audience. It is a mature drama and the teens might not be able to appreciate it. Furthermore, I am sure that the ‘adultery’ tag would drive away a lot of users. I did make an effort to check this manga out. After reading five chapters of the manga, I found it promising. It is a mature love drama. If you are looking to read something but have been unsuccessful in finding it, do give this a try.
