Quite unusual for a BoysLove title, the series takes a rather serious tone and focuses more on the story-telling than on the feelings of the protagonists or the sex, scenes of which being few and far-between.

* TheAlcoholic: Ashiei, notably. He even has the typical behaviour of a long-time alcoholic.



* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: What is hinted to have happen to Hisako]]

to:

* {{Landlord}}: Ryouji is Yuki's and Tetsu's landlord.landlord and offers them shelter and advice.


Added DiffLines:

* OrphansOrdeal: Both Tetsu and Yuki are orphans who went through hell.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotWithPorn: Averted. As explained aboved, the story is rather scarce on the sex and prefers to focus on the storytelling, developing rather dark and serious themes, which makes for an unusual number in the BoysLove genre.


Added DiffLines:

* SliceOfLife: The story oscillates between this and outright CrapsackWorld since it goes for a rather realistic and unsweetened tone.

* FanDisservice: [[spoiler: Yuki being treated as a whore.]]. Seems to be intentional FanDisservice at that - these scenes are about as "sexy" as an episode of LawAndOrderSVU. For very, very good reason.
