Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
First of all, i have to warn you… i also included it into the tags because i think it is important; this manga contains incest and necrophilia!
With this said, “Samenai Yume” is one of the best One shots i have read so far and i love it for so many reasons!
It has a very unique plot which might be disturbing at first…. but readers who are looking for something totally new and embrace dark topics will enjoy this manga for sure. It is a short tragic story describing a forbidden and very twisted love-triangle. Although it has eery supernatural and quite dark psychological elements, it is very entertaining and easy to read which might be because of the short length of the manga. Also, the romantic art style increases the beauty of the manga and makes the whole story round.
To me it is a eerily-beautiful short story, perfect for a quiet Halloween- or a scary stormy night. So get out some candles, turn off your lights and make yourself comfy with some hot chocolate and a blanket and have a good time 😉
