Manga Title: Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru – 裏切りは僕の名前を知っている
Sakurai Yuki is a mysterious boy with a mysterious power. Right after he was born, his mother left him near an orphanage where he was later found. Because of that event, Yuki strives for independence. He hates being a burden to anyone near him, but at the same time, he is afraid of being left alone. Moreover, ever since he can remember, he had a strange ability where when he touches others, he can feel their emotion. Unable to control it, he often made insensitive blunders. He later meets with a mysterious yet beautiful young man who saves his life, but somehow feels so nostalgic, like he’s met him before. With death threats and his ability increasing, a man who claimed to be his older brother suddenly appears. What will Yuki do when he learns the truth?

The manga is definitely so much better than its anime adaptation. If you really want to get a feel of ‘Uraboku’, read the manga. You’ll find that Yuki is less emotional as he grows more confident with his special ability and as he gets comfy with his new family. The manga is still ongoing with volume 8 being released on Oct-26. Fans of Odagiri-sensei’s art will be delighted to know that an Uraboku artbook is expected to be released on Mar-28, 2011. Pre-order is available here.
