When crazy college student Yuri is attacked at a party, she is saved by Toshiomi Oya, an underling of a yakuza organization. Despite her obvious attraction to him, she still convinces herself that she’s not the bad boy type. But when they meet again, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to him – beginning a steamy and dangerous affair that threatens to consume both her body and soul.
After the attack at the party, Yuri goes to Oya to thank him for saving her, and although she hates to admit it, she can’t deny that there is an attraction. However, when tragedy strikes, Yuri tries to turn her back on Oya and his dangerous lifestyle – but is the attraction too great to resist?
Mino launched the series in Shogakukan’s Premium Cheese magazine! in March 2018, before transferring the series to sister magazine Cheese! in April 2019. Shogakukan published the manga’s 11th volume on May 26.
