June PrideManga, vol.8+ (2001)
Scarred since childhood, Hayama Takumi was afraid of getting close to someone. While in school he comes across a charismatic and wealthy American student, Gui. Gui is the only person that doesn't see Takumi as odd. How will the two cop when Gui confesses his love for Takumi? Will Gui discover the secret trauma that closed Takumi's heart?
Far away from the city, deep within the mountains, sits the all-boys high school Shidou Academy. In years past, this school housed only the sons of the most elite families in the country, but these days it welcomes all into its historic halls.
Takumi, a boy from humble origins, prepares to begin his second year at the school. Held back by psychological issues, Takumi's indifferent attitude has garnered him no friends and a reputation as a cold fish. Then along comes Gui, a wealthy and charismatic student born in America. Gui is the only person who doesn't see Takumi as odd, and the two become friends. But how will the two cope when Gui confesses his love to Takumi? And can the couple survive the revelation of the secret behind the psychological problems that plague Takumi? (Source: Blu)
