Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru or Betrayal Knows My Name is an interesting manga by Odagiri Hotaru. I have just come across it and was wondering what others thought of it (if they, obviously, have read it). I'm a bit iffy on it.. not one for shounen-ai.. But, here's the deal-eo.. I'm not if it is shounen-ai or not because it doesn't say or anything *shrugs* Either way, I like it.. but at the same time I'm iffy on it. Your opinion?

Summary: Plagued by reoccurring dreams he can't quite recall and a strange power that allows others' thoughts and emotions to flow into him, high school student Sakurai Yuki has always longed to know the reason for his existence. Soon after a hauntingly beautiful, nostalgic stranger named Zess saves Yuki from an oncoming car, the head of the Gioh clan shows up at the foster group home where Yuki lives, claiming to be family. Who are the Gioh clan? What is their connection to Zess? Most importantly, can Yuki accept his role in the "destiny" laid out before him...? Storm in Heaven (http://www.unblessed.net/SiH/manga.php?t=150)

If this is a "copy post" or whatever, I'll delete it.

I really get the feeling it is or will be shonen ai, but there is more to it than that, so I wouldn't drop it just for that reason.

Plus : I don't think the guys even kiss in first eight chapters at least.
