Manga / The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice

A Josei manga from the mangaka of After School Nightmare, Setona Mizushiro. The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice is the sequel to The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese.

Kyouichi is now divorced from his wife and carrying on a tenuous, homosexual relationship with Imagase. He has even become accustomed to having sex with Imagase every day. However, when Tamaki, a young coworker with a crush on Kyouichi, appears on the scene, it might be the beginning of the end for Kyouichi and Imagase.


  • Freudian Trio: Black Kyouichi is the Id, grey Kyouichi is the ego, and white Kyouichi is the superego.
  • Seme: Imagese in the sexual sense but he switches role with Kyouichi once.
  • Uke: In another manga Imagese would have probably been the uke from the get go but because of Kyouichi's indecisive behaviour most of the time Kyouichi is the uke.
