A romance, that doesn't make you feel fuzzy inside

Byakuyakou
a romance, a love that bonded 2 characters deeper than many i've seen. But not a happy love story, filled with fuzzy warm feelings, romantic escapades and cute little offerings to each other. No, it's a love that is tested, a love so strong with the urge to protect, a love that causes the two to do whatever, to ensure the safety and what they presume was the happiness of the other. As they said it themselves, the other's happiness is their own personal indulgence.

If you've heard of this drama, you no doubt already know the basic storyline. For the sake o those who haven't heard, here's a short but hopefully spoilerless synopsis.

We have a boy, kirihara ryouji, and of course a girl, yukiho. The boy sees the girl just distantly staring of and wonders what's wrong. Later on we find out what's wrong. The child was sold by her mother coincidentally to his father and he was engaging in child pornography, witnessed by a peeping boy, none other than ryouji. Now he actually likes tihs girl, and so in a fit of emotion, he takes some scissors he had with him and stabs his father. The girl covers for him, and sets it up so that she frames her mother (the one who sold her to his father) and ends up gassing her and the mother dies. With this, she decides to leave, and they are to pretend to not know each other, in hopes of waiting out the statute of limitations, and in her words, being able to walk under the sun like an old couple, together, and free from the fear of being caught for their crimes.

It's an amazing, AMAZING, story, and a romance, albeit not one of the happier lighter ones. It's a bit o nthe heavy side, so for some it might be hard to plow through the episodes, but it's worth the effort to watch through as you see the web unfold, the character links spread, and the plot thicken more and more.

There is only one real insert song, and it quite mirrors the plot, in that it starts off somewhat nice, but then just begins to thicken and become more and more, until it hits the chourous and it starts belting out. It was a nice song once i got used to it.

I really enjoyed it, the music, the wonderful story, one of the best i'd watched in awhile, and having haruka ayase was love (i
