The story of two bonds, ‘teacher and student’ and ‘childhood friends’.

Looking for them because they were lost. ‘A place to belong’ and ‘a bond’ more than anything.

‘I hated heroes. Because they never appeared in front of me.’ Such a good-for-nothing delinquent, Masahiro, meets Kousuke, who goes by the nickname ‘Bear Killer’. Masahiro was yearning for a place where he could cry; where he belonged. Kousuke wanted to extend his arms which are more gentle than they are strong.
A dazzling emotion becomes known in midst of warmth.

The promise to always be together was broken. That is why Kensuke broke it off with Hasekura.
But Kensuke could not forget Hasekura. Hasekura wanted to see Kensuke’s smile one more time.

Hearts which passed each other by form a single ‘bond’.


Hitorijime My Hero is based on the original work of Memeco Arii, currently being serialized in gateau.
