Ok… I’ll be honest, I loved this anime but I’m torn between being grossed out by the age difference and the younger partner being in the first year of high school and finding it very cute. This is a +13 anime just because of some of the insinuations going on. It has the open dialogue in school about a homosexual relationship, and it squarely in the shonen-ai bordering on yaoi genre. For those who do like this anime, there is a manga that it was adapted from by the same name with 9 volumes to go along with the 10 anime episodes.

Haru gets called to Canada to visit with his mother. Once there he meets the  younger brother whom his parents have adopted. After spending a wonderful summer with him, he returns home to have his parents taken from him in a car accident, along with his memories. 5 years later Ren comes to live with Haru in Japan, however, Haru has no memory of the boy.

I would not suggest watching this anime if you are against homosexuality, large age gaps and worried about the age of consent. From my calculations Ren is 13, Haru is 22-23 and the twins are 18 – 19. So if we want to dissect this anime about the age difference and whether a 13-year-old can consent, we’ll have to do it another day. Until the last 2 episodes, it was sweet, but the last 2 episodes went the direction of Papa to Kiss in the Dark. Not something for everyone. Excuse me while I take a shower. It’s not as bad as Boku no Pico though. For those who love this anime, good news

For those who love this anime, good news there will be a second season out in January 2017

Disclaimer: The last 2 animes named are erotic animes and shouldn’t be watched by anyone under the age of 18.
