Introduction

The super hit comic from Miyuki Abe is finally turning into anime! Worrisome oldest son, super-handsome twins, the youngest being a wild child-- A troubled love woven by the much-rumored four brothers!

Story

You want to try being family with me? --and, make your heart race a lot more?

Haru Kaido is a high school student that ends up having to go overseas, tricked with a notice of his "mother in critical condition". There, he is suddenly introduced to a boy named Ren, being told, "This is your little brother!"

Ren is a wild child who doesn't listen to anyone, and Haru desperately kept taking care of him. It seems that there is some secret behind Ren's birth. On top of it, right as Ren was starting to become attached just to him, Haru is met with a certain tragedy.

--and five years later in Tokyo, Haru is reunited with a grown-up Ren...?
