"It's not romance, it's not even love. It's something much much deeper..."

The third Boys Love Game by Nitro+CHIRAL of Togainu no Chi fame, Sweet Pool begins with the return of Sakiyama Youji to his Catholic High School after a long absence due to illness. Suddenly he finds his life changing in unbelievable ways as his fate becomes entangled with his stoic classmate Shironuma Tetsuo, eccentric upper-classman Okinaga Zenya and friend Mita Makoto.

Sounds like your typical school boys love setting right? Except that this being a Nitro+ production means that the story is also infused with horror of the most potent kind. Filled to the brim with Primal Fear and Body Horror, all weighted with a brilliantly creepy soundtrack, this is definitely not a game for the faint-hearted.

The manga adaptation was licensed in English by SuBLime and published on July 2012.

Tropes used in Sweet Pool include:
