After Atsushi dies in a horrible accident, his twin brother Ayumu decides to steal his identity and returns to school in his place. He attempts to hide his reckless behavior and assume persona of his honor student brother. However, for some reason, Ayumu is unable to hide his true colors and composure around his classmate Kirishima.

Includes the following chapters:

Othello: Ayumu finds out his twin brother Atsushi died in an accident, and goes to live with his mother, even going to the same school as his deceased sibling. What is Kirishima's true feelings?

Snow White in Summer: The reunion of childhood friends Nanjo and Sakamoto (which means Snow).

The Scent of Midnight: Miyaji goes to the house of the dead artist Sougestsu and meets his "son" Masanari. A sad but touching story with a mystery that runs into her next story, The Abyss Pool.

I read this months and months ago, one story at a time. I really should have made comments then because I remember feeling very strongly about them and now I can't quite remember much at all. This is a collection of short stories, some of which I think I liked more than the rest.

Othello- made me think. Stories about twins, where one dies and the other has to cope with that loss, always pull at my heart. And this one has some interesting twists and emotions (and I do love me some angst and hurt/comfort).

Snow White in Summer- was cute. I have a thing for fairy tales as well, so this one made me smile.

The Scent of Midnight- Interesting but sad. And just when I was getting into it and getting to know the characters, it was over. Unfortunate.

The Abyss Pool- I think I liked this last story the most, even if I just about had a heart attack at the ending.

I definitely wasn't expecting such a range of emotions and ending in such a place. I don't think this is one I would re-read, but I'm glad I had the chance to read it once.

Taken from the manga/graphic novel bookbox!

Once again I agree with KateKintail's comments on all the stories. I actually think I read the last story in the past so it was nice to get to read the whole manga.

This book came home in the yaoi bookbox today; many thanks! It's one I hadn't read before, and looks quite intriguing.

Later: Nice mix of stories here, from the bad-twin trying to lead a better life by moving into his dead brother's circle (with a tragic and abusive back-story, to boot) to the beautiful - and hungry - dragon god. In "Othello" I liked the way the story gave Ayumu a way to regain his good memories of his twin, while also showing him some hope for a new life - and love. "Snow White in Summer" was cute and funny, with the angst-factor evaporating once the characters realized how they'd misunderstood each other. "Scent of Midnight" - now, that one was something of a heartbreaker, even if things did turn out fairly well for at least one of the characters. Would have liked to see more stories about those two! And "The Abyss Pool" - ah, yes; short, but with quite an impact. It reminded me of Pet Shop of Horrors, and that's a good thing.

I was left feeling pretty neutral about this collection. The stories are fine, but none of them really grabbed me. The two school stories have a few creative elements plot-wise, but I wasn't really engaged by the characters. "The Scent of Midnight" had the opposite problem, I liked the characters, but the plot was too thin to properly propel their interactions. "The Abyss Pool" is probably the strongest, creating a nicely atmospheric scene, and is helped in this by its brevity.
