Boy’s Abyss has risen to popularity in recent times with it’s gritty and uncomfortable tale of a young boy and the struggles he faces in life. The manga is not a happy one by any stretch, dealing with heavy topics like suicide, family abuse, and much darker topics. Boy’s Abyss provides a deep insight into the ugly side of human nature.
Boy’s Abyss tells the story of Reiji Kurose, a young boy living in the boonies. Every day Reiji wishes he could leave the countryside, but he knows it is nearly impossible for him, with his shut-in brother, demented grandmother, and overworked mother holding him down. His life is desolate, without anything to look forward to.
To make things worse, he is unable to avoid Gen Minegishi – a local thug who keeps him at his beck and call. Reiji has big dreams of moving away with his best friend, Sukako Akiyama, who is unhappy with her life in the boonies as well. Unfortunately, the harsh realities strike both of their dreams down again and again.
Reiji’s life becomes more complicated when he meets the famous idol Nagi Aoe, a part of the girl group “Acrylic” Reiji liked. It is even more absurd that he finds her working in the local convenience store in this gloomy countryside. Little does Reiji know that his encounter with Nagi Aoe will drag him down into a pit of sin, full of lies, betrayal, and obsession, as he gets caught up in a series of scandalous events.
Boy’s Abyss: Chapter 131 Recap
Let’s take a quick look at what happened previously in the manga. Previously, we see Gen coming to terms with his distorted and complex identity and true wishes. Gen confesses to Reiji that he does not want to be with Yuoko; he wants to be Yuoko. Gen wanted to be a woman like Yuoko, cursing the place and the people he was born to since he could not pursue his desire without repercussions.
Gen confesses his love for Reiji, asking him to die with him instead of Nagi or Chako. Gen wanted to be with Reiji forever, just them with their taboo love. Gen even confesses to having murdered Yuoko and dispose of her body in the river as per Yuoko’s dying request. Gen asks Reiji to kill him for murdering not just his mother but also his father.
Reiji is unable to bring himself to do something like that and tells Gen that even if Gen dies, Reiji will not follow him since there is someone he loves and wants to be with. Reiji tells Gen that Gen cannot die and it wasn’t his fault that Reiji’s father died, rather, it was his mother who let him bleed out. Reiji convinces Gen to go to the police and clear his name and consoles Gen that he will wait for him.
Gen and Reiji visit the river where Reiji’s mother’s body was disposed off. Afterwards, Gen goes to the police station as promised. Reiji couldn’t help but remember all the abuse he suffered by the hands of his abusive mother, who was emotionally unstable. Reiji felt guilty that even after his mother’s death, he still couldn’t feel anything.
