The tireless explanation of how ordinary life can be derailed after an unacknowledged motive. An intense and unsettling work, supported by a formidable command of the language.
Aaron is a twenty-year-old college student who spends the summer studying, confined to his room. But he has other things on his mind. Friends, love, the future that opens before him: everything fades into the background. Even the beloved superhero comics couldn’t distract him anymore. The only activity that calms him down is watching a young boy playing soccer at home alone from the window. It shows an unacceptable attraction as much as it is slowly impossible to ignore. How do you behave, who says? Can we continue to deny what we already know? Did Aaron really turn into a monster?

A love so strong and all-encompassing that it becomes obsession and madness. A new masterpiece has been found before Kamimura, the master of erotic manga, debuts by volume in a Coconino Press exclusive (in two editions, with paperback and miscellaneous) fifty years after its serial publication in the Japanese magazine “Comic & Comic”. Beautiful student Hegreko can’t stand being alone, and searches for her “perfect half” by going from one man to another. Until he meets the young Oikawa, and a hot and utter passion breaks out between the two…
Higreko is a girl who is constantly looking for love. She moves from one man to another, and from one relationship to another, trying to find her soul mate. Ever since learning of a passage from Plato’s Symposium – the one in which the myth of the two halves is mentioned – Hegreko has become almost obsessed with it. Until the day she meets a young Oikawa: passion explodes between the two and a complicity arises that will lead them to savor all the nuances of love: falling in love, passion, jealousy, madness, and revenge.
