MANGA: Hanaiki Kasoku
Hanaiki ~ Kasoku – Katsuaki Sassa
Symptom of Hanaiki: when your breath smells like flowers. Roughly 70% of youth have this. The symptoms occur when they fall in love for the first time.
This is a one-shot about a high schooler who couldn’t confess to his childhood friend for fear of losing him. So he tries to hide the flowers he disperses because of hanaiki.
I think this condition is pretty romantic if a little inconvenient. Specially if you have to keep your feelings a secret. This is my first time hearing about hanaiki but apparently it’s a thing in fanfic made famous by Korean girls. Gives a new meaning to the expression “coming up roses”.
