Azusa Kurokawa's Awakened Dreamer

Awakened Dreamer by Azusa Kurokawa (Kakusei Shigansha)
Suitani never wanted a normal life, but that’s what he has. And he loathes it. When he runs into Tamaki again, the small boy he bullied in the past and now a gorgeous television hero, he realizes Tamaki is everything he is not. But Tamaki hasn’t forgiven Suitani’s past cruelties, and suddenly, “normal” is a lifeline.

Unusual reflections on love continue in AWAKENED DREAMER, some filled with beautiful sadness, others with imaginative humor: a fatherless boy clings to something entirely his own for a few short hours; the son of a master mahjong player leads his starry-eyed friend to the mahjong wolves, hoping to crush his obsession with his old man; and a young farmer woefully misjudges his gentle, sensitive and silent older brother.
