“A breezy, blackly comic delinquent romance.”

To say that Ai Shima has had a tough life is an understatement. Trapped in a series of cults and gangs throughout her formative years, Ai has never found her place in life. Throughout her many phases, the only person who understood her is another social outcast, Ryota (Kenta Suga).

Abused by those she wants to trust and love, the young and estranged Ai struggles to find solid ground as she drifts from gang to gang. Love and Other Cults shows the darker side of human relationships in power struggles.
