This is book number 1 in the The Summer Hikaru Died series.
What happens when the person you thought you knew isn’t that person anymore? A riveting study in the questions of growing up, growing apart, and budding homosexual desire. This manga immediately drew me into summer in Japan touched by the supernatural, and had me mesmerized by both the story and beautiful, evocative artwork (down to the ambient sounds!). A perfect melding of BL and horror, I was blown away by this manga and can’t recommend it enough.— Caroline
