Ah, reincarnation as an excuse to date someone old enough to be your mom. I'm sure this has its appeal.

Definitely very sweet. You can say it's not for everyone, but that's every romance.

The actual French president and his wife were in the same situation (minus reincarnation), so it happens.

And minus the fact the president in question was old enough to the point that his wife being older than him wasn’t really an issue.

Doesn’t sound romantic at all, it sounds gross.

No, they first dated when he was in HS and she was his teacher.

I don't see the problem here since they have their previous lives memories.So their actual age is current age+plus the age when they died.It's also not gross physically since his body is developed enough(not like all those lolis who look like 10 but are actually 500+ years old)

I don't mind it. He is 17 not 7 so if she wants to marry him just wait a year. The age difference legally isn't that big to worry about.

I do like the lovers reuniting through time and facing social hurdles to their love it is endearing in a way.

Old enough to be his mom? Of course people will try to link age difference to incest. You can say he's dating someone as old as his sister and it'll sound gross too. As long as they are old enough to consent who cares.

Yeah as soon as they are old enough to consent the whole age thing becomes irrelevant. Though it is interesting from a story writing perspective.

I remember having to watch one of those crappy Mexican soap operas my mother loves and the plot was about a 40s woman falling in love with a 20 years old guy.

I just remembering me eyerolling my eyes and saying "Who the hell cares about age difference in our times?".

Well, looks like there are people who cares, impresive.

If "care" includes reactions such as "That synopsis makes this an instant must-read," I care very much.

Actually, I think this will be the first time I've ever picked up a manga discovered through ANN. Anime catgrin

It's the USA folks and their tendencies to get triggered.
