Normal in Parenthesis

"The world is unfair and unjust."

Is someone without his emotions can still be called 'human'? Or is one abnormal? Somehow, not everyone that appears to look human can't be technically human in this world.

Gin Sakato, a high school student finds himself in a normal life that he sought for and obtained. But everything changed just right after he was starting to discover his once lost emotions. With a life changing event, he faces the darkness of the reality and stood with courage, found his own self, found the love that saved him from the chasm and learn what is the reason of his being. But they realized: while there is despair, there is hope; and while there is hope, it does not mean that hopelessness will never fall anew.But in the midst of the storm, Gin, and everyone that clung to hope continued to push forward in their normal life and world...

And continued to break the fourth wall.
