Itsuki Homura (Komiya Rio, 19, also the main actor in the BL series Eternal Yesterday) is a transfer student to an all-boys school. The school is on an isolated island and admits problematic students. While it is self-sufficient, there is no functioning communication line. Travelling is also restricted and prohibited. As a way of life, students are busy in their study groups. Homura joins a group on the 19th-century French drama ‘Grand Guignol’. There is something sinister about this drama that is dedicated to mystery, and cruelty. Somehow this theme began to translate into the school itself. [Synopsis © Psycho-Weird]

An old-timer BL fan way back in 2007. I started out loving BL after watching the Takumi-kun series from Japan, went on collecting BL manga, and watched old BL anime such as Junjou Romantica and the likes. Love of Siam allow me to transition into Thai, while Amphetamine gave me glimpses of Taiwanese BL magic. I love to write reviews and I’m one of the administrators of Psycho Weird.
