Four boys who ran away from their home meet each other, live together, and later become adopted child with having ambivalent emotion between hunger for love and distrust to adults.

In this manga, emotion of the boys are well portrayed but ideational and dialogue heavy.

On the title, “Hamidashikko” is the pronunciation of the title and “Children who don’t belong anywhere” is my translation.
