In ESCAPE JOURNEY, Naoto and Taichi’s first try at love during their high school days crashed and burned. Years later the two unexpectedly reunite on their first day of college. Tumultuous love often burns hot, and the glowing embers of their previous relationship reignite into a second try at love.

“Fans are going to enjoy this love story about high school ex’s rediscovering in adulthood their complicated feelings for each other,” says SuBLime Editor, Jennifer LeBlanc. “Like it or not, Taichi and Naoto still have an undeniable chemistry. Find out if these college students overcome their high school hang-ups or instead make the same mistakes that originally tore them apart.”
